    Wake on Lan

    I'm going to give this a try this weekend. I'll report back. And also, this is great that a YEAR later this thread is reincarnated! Thanks.
  2. I'm in a slightly similar scenario. I don't have any crashes on boot but sleep isn't working for me (machine KPs upon waking from sleep). I've set my machine not to ever sleep for now. I went from 10.6.4 to 10.6.6 (Kakewalk installation). Can someone tell me if the 10.6.5 64 bit sleepenabler works fine with 10.6.6 or do I need to wait for the 10.6.6 version to be written? Thanks.
  3. I did the combo updater from 10.6.4 to 10.6.6. All seemed to go well, no kernel panics after the reboot, etc. I did finally have a problem and that was coming out of sleep my machine KP'd. Any suggestions on how to fix the sleepenabler for 10.6.6.? Thanks.

    Booting from RAID-0 ?

    formerly and peach-os: or that the raid addition to chameleon is newer than when I did my research into supporting a RAID-0 as the only volume of a hackintosh.

    Booting from RAID-0 ?

    raoul: This is GREAT news to hear! I didn't think it was possible to boot a hackintosh from an Apple Disk Utility based RAID. Thank you for the screenshots also. I'm going to work on this on my next hackintosh build. I don't see the need in putting in a 10K boot drive if I can get the striped disk raid to work. Thanks!

    Added a 3 disk striped volume

    Here are actual benchmark numbers: From Xbench 1.3: Disk Test Sequential Uncached Write 473.56 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Write 420.46 MB/sec [256K blocks] Uncached Read 44.85 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Read 341.95 MB/sec [256K blocks] Random Uncached Write 70.35 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Write 371.80 MB/sec [256K blocks] Uncached Read 2.08 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Read 60.18 MB/sec [256K blocks]
  7. If you haven't already check System Preferences -> Sound and make sure "Line Out" is selected as your audio out destination.

    Booting from RAID-0 ?

    Are you trying to boot from a RAID 0 that you created with Disk Utility? If so I believe the answer is "you can't." The OS needs to be loaded from a non-RAID drive as I understand the boot kernel does not have the raid drivers compiled into it. Once the OS is running then it can access Disk Utility created RAID drives.
  9. I've added three Samsung Spinpoint F3 7,200 RPM 1TB drives to my system. Using Disk Utility I created a striped volume with all three disks. Since it's a striped drive I don't loose any space and I gain the spindle count for performance! For my root volume I am using a WD 10,000RPM 300GB Velociraptor drive. I ran Xbench 1.3 and benchmarked my 10K Velociraptor at 98.64. I then ran Xbench against the new 3TB three drive volume I created and got a result of 410.39!! Yes, 410!!!! I'll be using this new drive for my Photoshop swap along with general movie and files storage. I'm just passing along some good information.

    Re: CD DVD recovery software

    I've never used it but CopyCatX supposedly recovers faulty media. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CopyCatX Good luck.

    Wake on Lan

    I did a test last night and I was surprised. From the Mac Mini my hackintosh's shared services (folders) DO NOT show up when it is either in sleep or hibernation. I guess because System Preferences -> Energy Saver has no reference to "wake on lan / demand" that my Airport Extreme Base Station doesn't Bonjour advertise the services when the machine is asleep as it doesn't think it can wake it up if another macintosh requests one of those services. In "sleep" sending a WOL packet via broadcast from my iPhone will wake my hackintosh. In "hibernation / deep sleep" the WOL packet via broadcast DOES NOT wake it. EDIT: Actually the WOL packet via broadcast from my iPhone wakes my hackintosh in "sleep" or "deep sleep / hibernation". The only aspect of waking up that does not work is having the Apple Extreme Base Station advertise shared services when it is sleeping. This is probably b/c my hackintosh doesn't think it CAN handle WOL so doesn't tell the AES to advertise for it when it is. Is there a fix for this? [END EDIT) I need to start researching the sleep / wake kext enablers that have been written to see if any of them might help out my Kakewalk installation without doing any harm to an otherwise perfectly running machine.

    Wake on Lan

    My GA-EX58-UD5, running Kakewalk -- no additional kexts or changes made, behaves fine to WOL packets when first put to sleep, but eventually it won't wake any longer from the WOL packets. I think when the machine switches from sleep to hibernate the on board NIC stops listening to the network. The machine still wakes perfectly though if you touch a key on the keyboard, for example. Edit: Oh by the way, In "energy saver" section of System Preferences I have NO options for "Wake on lan." I guess the OS isn't detecting the hardware properly, go figure it's a hackintosh! But that doesn't seem to matter as the wake on lan works for a while. I do need to test tonight from my Mac Mini and my Apple Extreme Basestation if Bonjour will wake my hackintosh from hibernation sleep (the mode that WOL packets no longer do.)
  13. I have a Kakewalk based hackintosh built on a Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 motherboard. Overall I have zero problems with this machine. I do have a question about Wake on Lan (WOL). I can send a WOL packet and successfully wake my machine if it hasn't been a sleep too long. If the machine has been a sleep for a while the WOL packet doesn't wake the machine (although pressing a keyboard key does still wake it). I haven't yet figured out at what length of time the WOL packet stops working after it has been asleep. I did a bit of searching on this forum and have come to the conclusion that there might be two types of sleep. A "regular" sleep and a "deep" sleep. The deep sleep might be called "hibernation". Is this true? Does a hackintosh go into "sleep" and then at some point go into "hibernation?" I wonder if the WOL packet wakes my machine from sleep but not hibernation. Can anyone help shed some light on this? Thanks.
  14. What motherboard are you using? For my GA-EX58-UD5 I had to go into the BIOS and choose the option for the XMP profile for the RAM. That was all I did, enable that option. Then my RAM was detected pretty close in speed to the 1333 that it should be.
  15. I'm getting ready to install OS X / Kakewalk. My new GA-EX58-UD5 motherboard is running BIOS version F7. Gigabyte's website has version F12 available for download. What version is the DSDT file in Kakewalk created for? Thanks.
