  1. smcReadKeyAction messages filling log

    I solved this simply by installing netkas's latest FakeSMC package : http://sourceforge.net/projects/hwsensors/
  2. Looking for iCal 4.x (snow leopard)

    Nobody ? Come on, I don't feel like downloading 8Go for that and I don't have the DVD right here :-)
  3. Hi, I recently upgraded to Lion and it appears that iCal 5.0 has "some" compatibility issues with my Caldav server (namely zarafa). Does anybody running Snow Leopard want to send the version provided with it to me privately ? Thanks :-) Matt
  4. Doesn't work for me either... Stuck at the grey screen just after the console messages with a spindle wheel mouse at upper left of the screen. I'm using an Asus P5-KPL.
  5. [GUIDE] QE/CI with ATI Radeon 2400XT 0x94c1

    Wonderful ffxireks ! I'll try one of these days... Thanks for sharing. Pagaille
  6. Hi, I'm running Leopard (Vanilla 10.5.8) on an Asus P5KPL-VM. While everything else works like a dream (that's my everyday machine), the last thing I can't get to work is the Firewire interface. This motherboard has an embedded firewire interface build on the Via VT6306 chipset (as reported by lspci). As far as I understand reading the forums, this chipset should be recognized out of the box by OSX. Sadly, it isn't in my case : the system information tool reports 'no interface installed' or something. Reading the lspci output, I remarked that the PCI "slot" was equal to 4, which is quite unusual. Do you guys think that it could be the reason why this interface isn't working ? What is the kext name that should be loaded for this peripheral ? Any advice to get it working ? I'd like to use to hook a DV-CAM. Thanks Pagaille
  7. Realtek 8111 DHCP drop

    Bump... Any solution to this annoying problem ? Also, the Bonjour thing doesn't work anymore after sleep...
  8. (solved) Can't get my HD 2400 pro work

    Hi ! Indeed, there is something missing in my description. I forgot I had a string in com.apple.Boot.plist, that's probably important to get the board working. The one I used was the one contained in the OSX86tool utility (corresponding to the HD2400), where I replaced all the occurrences of Iago by Megalodon (and IagoParent by MegalodonParent). Note that I always used the VGA cable, not the DVI (never tested). Please try this... and let us know ! I'm excited to know if someone else succeed to get it working of if I was incredibly lucky. Note : My father mistakenly plugged the VGA cable into the embedded VGA port (covered by a small cap, I even didn't noticed it !)... That completely broke the configuration, I don't know how or why. I still have to check what happened... Have fun Pagaille Stupid question : what's the keyboard shortcut you use to reboot a hackintosh ? :-) Thanks

Note that I always used the VGA cable, not the DVI (never tested). /EDIT Sorry for the late answer... Here it is : my very first howto :-) HOWTO : edit your DSDT file to enable your 2400 XT or PRO with QE/CI (at least for me) My machine : Dell Vostro 200, Intel Dual Core 2 Duo, ICH9R based (btw : everything works now, except sleep...) I'm currently running 10.5.8. I didn't tried this on Snow Leopard, and I don't know if it could help. My main source for getting this to work : I once came accross this page (in french) that talked about adding some code to the dsdt file in order to get it correctly recognized by the system. Explaining how to extract, compile, correct and edit your dsdt file is outside the scope of the howto, but you'll find plenty of explanations about this on the web. I personally used DSDTSE, a new tool (english version : scroll down) which seems to really "simplify" (that stays really a geeky trick) the whole process. After having extracted your dsdt.aml file (tools > extract), start with adding a small bit of code in the beginning of your file, just after the headers : Method (DTGP, 5, NotSerialized) { If (LEqual (Arg0, Buffer (0x10) { /* 0000 */ 0xC6, 0xB7, 0xB5, 0xA0, 0x18, 0x13, 0x1C, 0x44, /* 0008 */ 0xB0, 0xC9, 0xFE, 0x69, 0x5E, 0xAF, 0x94, 0x9B })) { If (LEqual (Arg1, One)) { If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero)) { Store (Buffer (One) { 0x03 }, Arg4) Return (One) } If (LEqual (Arg2, One)) { Return (One) } } } Store (Buffer (One) { 0x00 }, Arg4) Return (Zero) } Then search for something looking at this : Device (PCI0) (note : could be PCI1 depending of your hardware) { Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A03")) Name (_ADR, 0x00) Name (_UID, 0x01) Name (_BBN, 0x00) Method (_S3D, 0, NotSerialized) { If (LEqual (OSFL, 0x02)) { Return (0x02) } Else { Return (0x03) } ... and replace it with the following code (using PCI1 if it applies to you) : Device (PCI0) { Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A03")) Name (_ADR, 0x00) Name (_UID, 0x01) Name (_BBN, 0x00) Device (GFX0) { Name (_ADR, Zero) Name (_SUN, One) Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { Store (Package (0x1E) { "@0,compatible", Buffer (0x0B) { "ATY,Megalodon" /* <-----Change your framebuffer to the one you need (Wormy, Megalodon, Motmot) */ }, "@0,deviceType", Buffer (0x08) { "display" }, "@0,VRAM,memsize", Buffer (0x04) { 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x40 }, "@0,display-connect-flags", Buffer (0x02) { 0x00, 0x04 }, "@0,name", Buffer (0x0E) { "ATY,Display_A" }, "@1,compatible", Buffer (0x0B) { "ATY,Megalodon" /* <-----Change your framebuffer to the one you need (Wormy, Megalodon, Motmot) */ }, "@1,device_type", Buffer (0x08) { "display" }, "@1,VRAM,memsize", Buffer (0x08) { 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x40 }, "@1,display-connect-flags", Buffer (0x02) { 0x00, 0x04 }, "@1,name", Buffer (0x0E) { "ATY,Display_B" }, "ATY,Card#", Buffer (0x0E) { "109-B148xx-00" }, "ATY,Rom#", Buffer (0x0F) { "113-B1480A-236" }, "device_type", Buffer (0x11) { "ATY,MegalodonParent" /* <--Change your framebuffer to the one you need (Wormy, Megalodon, Motmot) */ }, "VRAM,totalsize", Buffer (0x04) { 0x10 /*<-----------Ram Amount: 0x40 = 1024mb, 0x20= 512mb, 0x10= 256mb */ }, "model", Buffer () { "ATI Radeon HD 2400 Series - DSDT generated" /* Change name here */ } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } Now the hard part : Tools > Save (accept default location and name), then Compile your file (Tools > Compile)... And correct the errors if any. Google the error messages you get, you'll find the corrections quiet easily (it took me something like an hour to get mine compiling without errors). Once compiled, install your dsdt.dsl file (Tools > Install) and reboot. You should see a second VGA adapter - the one you just added to your dsdt file - in the PCI cards section of the System Profiler : Now the easiest part : download netkas's RadeonHD package and install it. Like usual, patch the ATIRadeonX2000.kext file with your PCI ID (0x94C1 or 0x94C3), reboot, and... cross your fingers :-) You should FINALLY get full QE/CI : Please let us know if it worked for you and mail me privately if you need assistance... Enjoy Pagaille
  10. (solved) Can't get my HD 2400 pro work

    I'm not sure why, but creating a dsdt.aml file customized for my machine and adding the "Ati Wormy/Megalodon/Motmot Hack" customized with Megalodon framebuffer and after that installing netkas's ATY_init finally solved this headache problem... It's not an easy way, but I would be happy to help anybody wanting to try my solution. Just write to me here.

    Just boot using the -x option : stop the bootloader (most often by pressing F8 at boot time) and enter the -x boot switch that will let your mac boot into "safe mode"... It will only load the mandatory kexts... Please share with us your results ! I never succeeded to get my 2400 Pro to work.
  12. Hi, You could try TestDisk http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk or PhotoRec http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec which scans your entire hard drive and search for files types based on their header. You'll most probably find your files back. Note that you should really install the tool on another partition in order to write over the sectors occupied by your lost files ! read the doc carefully, Good luck Pagaille
  13. (solved) Can't get my HD 2400 pro work

    Ciao Giorgio and all, I followed all the steps mentioned into your italian guide, tried everything I could, rebooted dozen and dozen of times, but I can't get my Radeon HD2400 XT to work with acceleration. Actually, I believe that it *is* working, but I get a screen corrupted full of garbage (vertical colored lines, I can guess the mouse movement and the picture displayed) on both outputs of the VGA splitter. I don't have any DVI display so I can't test with it. I even tried to flash it with the 2400 Pro firmware (0x94C3), no change. I checked that the Megalodon frame buffer driver was present in ATINDRV.kext - it wasn't, so I installed the one you provided. Absolutely no change. The board was shipped into a Dell Vostro 200, it looks like a real ATI PCIe board. Any idea ? Thanks, Gracie, Matthieu, Belgium
  14. Since the power consumption (P=U*I) is roughly the same, I believe that they will both have the same torque... Pagaille
  15. [GUIDE] QE/CI with ATI Radeon 2400XT 0x94c1

    Hi Giorgio, I think I succesfully implemented your directions in order to enable the ATI 2400 XT (0x94C1) card on my Dell Vostro 200. However, I get a corrupted display (I can guess that OS/X loads thanks to the typical apple theme colors, and because I'm able to log in blindly)... I must reboot in single user mode to delete the ATI kexts in order to be able to boot correctly... in 1024x768 mode... I run OS/X 10.5.8 (vanilla) I deleleted all others test I did Any idea to get this one working ? Thanks for your help. Pagaille
