  1. Dong's ATI HD framebuffer is a quite promising solution, the latest kext for 10.5 causes KP at start a couple times, but if your system starts once it works properly from that point. (native resolution, qe/ci full support) http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=190586
  2. Resetting PRAM

    http://support.apple.com/kb/TA21106?viewlocale=en_US try the steps below, which deal with the video resolution information that is stored in three places: PRAM (don't bother with this, you don't have it on your hackintosh) /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost/com.apple.windowserver.xxxx.plist Note: The tilde symbol (~) designates a user's home folder. The text "xxxx" represents an alpha numeric string, such as "00306549719e".
  3. X1300-X1350-X1400-X1450

    The new chameleon bootloader is out (v2 RC3), and the features contain an interesting feature: http://tinyurl.com/kmtkby "VideoROM You can pass an alternate video ROM image file to the system." Maybe we could try to pass a different ROM image which works with x1350, but pretends to be a different display adapter, which supports different framebuffer than Caretta. (i.e. Wormy) This way we might fix the native resolution support for our cards. This is just a wild guess, what do you think, can we achieve some results experimenting with this procedure?
  4. Overheating in OSx86?

    I have a hp 6820s (core2duo 2GHz) with iPC 10.5.6 vanilla kernel install, upgraded to 10.5.8 I started to monitor my cpu temperatures, and it turned out, that the system is overheated a little bit. I had 70-72 C temperatures for both core in idle state. The fan was working at low speed, but it seemed that it's not enough to cool down the system. So i installed voodoopower.kext, and the temperatures were better, but still high a little bit. I decided to try one other pack from the install dvd called PowerManagement package. This time the cpu fan started to work at lower temperatures. With this configuration i managed to lower the system idle state temperature to 56-60 C which is a great achievement compared to the previous results. The fan is still working at low speed, it's not noisy at all, so i can live with it easily. But on the other hand this package caused problems with my USB controller and i could not use the USB mouse and keyboard. The error messages were: Class "AppleACPIPS2Nub" is duplicate Duplicate class kmod_control/start failed for com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPS2Nub; destroying kmod ^[[33mFailed to load extension com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPS2Nub. ^[[0mStarting AppleACPIPS2Nub ... USBF: 0.851 AppleUSBEHCI[0x3880000]: unable to get filterInterruptEventSource USBF: 0.853 AppleUSBEHCI[0x3880000]::UIMInitialize - Error occurred (0xe00002be) USBF: 0.868 AppleUSBEHCI: unable to initialize UIM USBF: 5.864 AppleUSBUHCI: unable to initialize UIMUSBF: 5.865 AppleUSBUHCI: unable to initialize UIM I definitely wanted to stick with the new cpu fan behavior and i wanted to use the usb devices also, so i started to think about a solution. I had the option to turn off one of the cores, but i wanted to keep the extra power, it comes handy So i compared the AppleACPIPlatform.kext from the 10.5.8 update with the AppleACPIPlatform.kext from the "PowerManagement" package. It turned out that the PowerManagement package contains a few more kexts in the Contents/Plugins than the 10.5.8 native version. So i tried to guess which kexts needed for the correct fan control and power management, and which kexts are unnecessary, and causing troubles for me. The kexts in the 10.5.8 AppleACPIPlatform.kext (Contents/Plugins): AppleACPIButtons.kext AppleACPIEC.kext AppleACPIPCI.kext The kexts in the PowerManagement package's AppleACPIPlatform.kext (Contents/Plugins): ACPIPS2Nub.kext AppleACPIButtons.kext AppleACPIEC.kext AppleACPILPC.kext AppleACPIPCI.kext AppleACPIPowerSource.kext AppleACPIThermal.kext ApplePCIConfigurator.kext so i modified the PowerManagement package's AppleACPIPlatform.kext to look like this: AppleACPIButtons.kext AppleACPIEC.kext AppleACPILPC.kext AppleACPIPCI.kext AppleACPIPowerSource.kext AppleACPIThermal.kext I installed the modified kext, and there was no more error message on the console, the usb was working, and the fan is also. The idle temperatures: 56-60 C The high load temperatures: 72-76 C It could be better, but i was satisfied with the results, i stick with this config Tools i used for monitoring: MSR Tools, Temperature Monitor and GenericCPUPMControl I thought i could share the experience, since i tried all the methods described in this post, and i was not succeeded with neither of them (the kext deleting methods). The modified kext is attached. AppleACPIPlatform_FanWorkingMod.zip

    Kickass!!! This trick works also for SMCWCB-G EZ Connect™ g Wireless Cardbus Adapter. (uses the same atheros chipset) Tried under 10.4.11, works as a charm. Thanks man!!!
