  1. Im using an ALC655 Realtek sound card integrated into a Gigabyte mobo and with ICH7 chipset and iDeneb 10.5.5. There is no sound. Until recently I was convinced that this is a driver problem, because System Prefs didn't show any devices under the Audio tab. But now I got a version of the AppleAC97Audio.kext that actually makes the card be detected in System Prefs, and it now lets me also to play system sounds but only in theory... Because no actual sound comes with any choice of speakers/headphones. I am starting to accept the defeating fact that there is a hardware problem with the ALC655 and that i will need to find an alternative. I realized recently that XP doesnt play sounds either even though the driver is installed and again, the system detects the card... All I need from you guys is to confirm for me that there is a high probability of a hardware issue so i can stop browsing the net for new drivers. thanks in advance. tonik
  2. Hi all, Im triple booting OS X, XP and Ubuntu Linux. I was wondering... It would be quite noce if i could write to my XP-NTFS partition from OS X rather than just read from it. Its nothing crucial or anything, it would simply be nice. Im pretty sure the situation with Ubuntu's EXT3 partition wont work... OS X doesnt even mount it (although disk util sees it) (XP doesnt see it at all) Am i correct, that EXT3 wont mount no matter how hard i try? And actually one more thing: again pretty sure it wont work. Any chance of XP recognizing, reading, writing HFS+ of OS X? (And EXT + if possible ) To sum it up: please tell me all the possibilities of reading writing my three OS's files in each os. Tnx... I can already guess my options
  3. Hi mac fans! I want to find out more about the system under os x. im new to the complete programming language idea, not only darwin and unix. My aim is to know some key and some not so key commands that i can use in terminal or at boot (i have completely no idea about boot commanding). I dont want to learn the complete language, so im in search for a simple site or something that explains it to me. PLease post a link of a site or give me an idea where to start. Thnx a lot!
  4. Hi everyone, I have an Intel Celeron 2.4 Ghz PC with OS X x86 10.4.6 (with sec update 2006-003 on it). Like many others i have trouble getting my video card working properly, i cant get any resolutions other than 1024x768, no matter if less or greater. Here is the info displayed in system profiler about my video hardware: Display: Type: VGA-Compatible Controller Bus: PCI VRAM (Total): 128 MB Vendor: nVIDIA (0x10de) Device ID: 0x0322 Revision ID: 0x00a1 Displays: Display: Resolution: 1024 x 768 Depth: 32-bit Color Core Image: Not Supported Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Quartz Extreme: Not Supported An additional thing that the system profiler does no tell is that its an Abit Siluro product (I know from the driver CD for windows) It might not be enough info but i dont know much else about it... Seing that the vendor is nVIDIA i downloaded the MacVidia Beta 2 Build 1 driver and followed all install instructions that were given. Nothing changed when i rebooted except that during boot when it loads the kext files for video card the two of the files that i had to install manually (as in the instruction) cannot be found (when i boot, instead of the apple logo and the turning wheel i see the Darwin commandline but thats no matter it works the same way). Thats what Drwin says, but they should be there. Please help if you can in any way Thx a lot!

    How To Fix iTunes 7 for SSE2

    great guide, thanks. works but extreeeemely slow on slower machines! expect results that would occure as if its a PPC app.
  6. There: I found a program. The only one there is... Although it doesnt work for me for some reason somehow. http://www.bmannconsulting.com/macosx/how-to/ext2-for-mac Wen downloading choose the second option the newer release, only that supports 10.4.x
  7. No, OS X doesnt read EXT2 or 3. At least not natively. Disk utility sees the partitions and says its a Linux partition but it does not recognize the exact file system. Actually it does not give any other info than saying Linux in one breef line... Probably thre is a third party program that enables it (i didnt check). I assume this because u can install Linux (Ubuntu for PowerPC is available for download) on a real Mac and i bet that mac users dont want to get rid of OS X but rather dual boot. And than it probably was bothering people that they couldnt acces part of their hard drives so they designed apps that solved their problem. So anyway im pretty sure it is possible to set up os x to read/write ext but not easily.
  8. I did update, and all i can say is that its something powerful. It works seamlessly. Tnx I actually got into the topic so much that i dwnloaded an app for windows that enables windows to read AND WRITE (can it be better) to EXT2 and 3. So anyway... ima happy guy... By the way, i heard a rumor, probably not true, that Leopard will support read AND write on NTFS volumes.
  9. haha i see... well to be honest u wouldnt have needed to say i dont have to buy it. in fact, i wasnt even thinking of buying it, but certainly thinking of using it So thank u. Ill give macdrive a shot.
  10. Hi, im in a situation where i need to reinstall tiger on my G5... long story... anyway, my question is: if i have two hard drives one on which the system is and another with all my mixed files, will a reinstall erase the hd with the files or will it keep it untuched? i have never reinstalled osx, i just never needed to. Please reply quickly! i need to get going with it as quick as possible! tnx in advence!
  11. OK thank you very much. Ill cross my fingers than and reinstall. Its really cool that the osx installer can archive the old system but the exact reason i reinstall for is to get rid of all the system files and renew them. tnx both of u for the fast reply
  12. Hi, I translated ur guide. It has big success on the hungarian OS Xx86 forum site
  13. hi, if u follow along the guide it tells u exactly well but here it is... 1. open terminal 2. type: cd /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration 3. press ENTER 3. type: sudo nano com.apple.boot.plist. An xml file should open in a word editor named nano. 4. Find the line where it says <string></string> under the <key>Kernel Flags</key> line. It doesnt matter if it says something in between the the strings. 5. Between the strings type: "Graphics Mode"="1280x1024x32@60" Should look like this: <string>"Graphics Mode"="1280x1024x32@60"</string> 6. Press CTRL+X. It should ask u to save the file or not. Press Y to save, than press ENTER. 7. Reboot. I dont really know... It should work... all Heckintoshes should be acting the same way no matter what the system is. Try doing it again maybe u typed something wrong or it might be that ur display does not support highrer resolutions. OS X is clever enough to set the resoulution back to the defeault 1024x768 if it detects that the desplay does not support spacier reses and also if it doesnt understand the line that u typed cause of a typo It should work though without trouble it worked for me perfectly. Im suspecting a typo...
  14. Hi all! may be its not a new thing or not even cool but i just realized. If u have trouble installing and running microsoft messenger to ur ses2 Macintel dont bother with it any more and dont be sad that stupid microsoft is releasing their universal version only 200 years from now. use adium, its universal. u can have not only an msn account but IRC, AOL, iChat and many others. its much better than msn and much more costumisable. here is the link: http://www.adiumx.com/ Again, sorry if it is not a new thing and this thread is taking up place uselessly... http://forum.osx86project.org/style_images...icons/icon4.gif sorry for the emoticon link... pffff

    Adium instead of MSN on x68 Macs

    OK, can anyone explain to me how JoeP could do it?
  16. Edit: By PC I meant Windows XP
  17. hi there, I have a Toshiba MK4025GAS drive in a Billinton external case. The problem is, it will not moutn on my 10.4.6 + sec update 2006-003 macintel. I tried all six usb ports that i have, they all give it power, but non of tham mount it. All of my ports are USB 2.0. I cave an Epson usb printer and that works in all of the ports just fine, so that is why I find this wierd. It works fine on my Power Mac G5 and it worked fine previously on my PC, when I had Windows instead of OS X. In the manual it says that the drive works without the need of a driver instatallation under OS X, OS 9 and XP. I suspect that the this intel version of OS X does not have the driver files installed. I probably need to get them but dont know where from. Can someone help, please?
  18. MacRumors has got one: http://guides.macrumors.com/List_of_Universal_Binaries
  19. Oh i meant the things that others were saying u should include an u said u put it in the list. I thought its a list that u havent put up yet... probably missunderstood. But hey, u fixed one of my problems accidentally . I could not find a way how to get a large resolution to my mactel but ur explonation about nanoing the com.apple.plist file sorted my problem out. Thanks man! By the way u said previously that someone should translate the guide to a different language. If u want i can translate it to hungarian sometime.
  20. Actually I fixed it so never mind. DaxTcurugi's darwin guide was a great help If u have similar problems with setting resolution, here is the thread link to his guide: http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?showtopic=14496 Finally i can see OS X x86 in 1280x1024 resolution! Its spacy...
  21. Wow thanx a lot man. Dax did an amazing job there. Wonder if he will put up the updated list soon...

    Adium instead of MSN on x68 Macs

    OK... can u please explain that in a bit more detail? Cuz im really interested.
  23. Yes I know that... I have a G5. Im not expecting to get those ppc appz run as fast as on my ppc, but im sure that there is a patch, a way in which i can accelerate things. Plus there are appz that dont even run on my intel and the patches that have been flying around are to solve that problem. So please send me something if u have it.
  24. I have an intel celeron 2,4 ghz processor, but it is only a sses2. I need to run ppc appz like microsoft office and microsoft messenger FAST cuz now if they open at all they are sluggish. I have no problem at all with the system: I'm running OS X x86 10.4.6. I was searching for a patch like maxxuss's or win2osx,but could not find them. They desappeared (understandably). If anyone sees a better way of speeding up my ppc appz please tell me or if u can send me the patch, link or anything in email or msn (on my real mac it works) please do so! email+msn address: mac0fun@gmail.com Thank you!
