    A piano that's in tune and hardware that I don't have to write drivers for.
  1. Well, the P-States provided by the system are wrong, as I explained in a PM. Not only is there not a proper entry for IDA, but it doesn't allow one to use the 600MHz P-State either.
  2. Hey guys, I just wanted to post back to say I got P-States working on a Dell Latitude D830. My problem was the PLimit entry in ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.kext. However, I also figured out that Dells have some REALLY messed up _PSS tables for T9300s. Two of the six entries are completely wrong. More details are on my blog (linked in my signature). theStevo
  3. Hello, I originally got P-states registered by following this guide but I haven't been able to get them working. I also get CST errors. I talked with Brett Whinnen, and made some modifications on his advice, but that did not end up changing things. I've got 17 P-states showing up in CPU-i, but the status always shows the same for both cores: 796 MHz, 8x multiplier, and 1.004 voltage. Interestingly enough though, that is not one of the P-states. The closest P-state listed is supposed to have 1.116 V. For now I'd be happy just to get my P-states working, I suspect my C-state problem is the same as Brett's since we both have a Dell with a T9300. Does anyone have any suggestions? dsdt.aml.zip

  6. I'm not aware of a DVI/HDMI solution for the P5E-VM. I don't have this board, and I wouldn't know where to start helping you remotely. I believe I addressed this issue earlier in the thread. As for 10.5.5 or greater, please remember what I said about additional files needing to be replaced. This information is already here guys, read.

    GMA 3100 QE/CI Enabled, Gurus/Tech Inclined Only

    Here are the files I was testing with. Some are modified, some vanilla, some files didn't really change anything at all. But, that was the folder I was working out of. I don't have the machine anymore, and I'm done with this project for now. Good luck. http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=6f85994...04e75f6e8ebb871 theStevo

    Quote from M*A*S*H

    I know this is going to seem like a very odd insanelymac blog post, and it is. But, I don't otherwise blog and I need a place to post this so search engines can see it. About two months ago, I thought of a specific quote from an episode of MASH. MASH is by far my favorite TV series, and I've watched every episode multiple times. Well, I couldn't for the life of me figure out what episode this quote was from. I could find the quote online, but nobody referenced the episode name. So, I began watching seasons 4-11 again in hopes of finding it. I am here to list the quote's exact wording, (taken directly from the episode now playing on my computer) who said it, to whom, episode name, and time so that people Googling it in the future will be able to find it. "Just remember, there's a right way and a wrong way to do everything, and the wrong way is to keep tryin' to make everybody else do it the right way." Colonel Potter to Hawkeye in season 7, episode 17 "Inga" at 15:12 Hope it helps somebody, but at least now my sanity is safe theStevo

    New Mac Mini in early March?

    I agree with Synaesthesia. I don't think that Apple could justify using an ION platform currently. Perhaps it may be more practical with Snow Leopard, but only marginally so. Apple doesn't do cheap and underpowered, especially on a machine that is instrumental in introducing customers to OS X. It could be a very negative experience to start anybody but Grandma on something with an Atom CPU if they just came from Windows; severe limitations. I think ION makes much more sense for AppleTV. They have been trying to get the price and form factor smaller, and this would do it. With its HD video capability, it is the perfect fit for aTV. However, I would expect that Apple is keeping a watchful eye on Atom updates for future use with the Mini. But now just isn't the right time. Just my four cents (inflation), theStevo

    Intel 82566MM Open Sourced

    Well, not exactly. Intel 82566MM is an existing OSx86 driver for Intel 8256X network chipsets, ported from Linux's e1000. Ding ported it and has made some updates, but now the source of the OS X driver is available for anyone to improve upon. This network chipset is found in many Dell desktops and some Lenovo laptops, amongst many others.
  14. Oh, I see. Payment sent.
  15. No, I understand. By proprietary I merely meant that the information currently resides largely with you, and isn't widely understood or available. I'll send the payment within a couple hours. Thanks.
