  1. Security Update 2009-005 is out

    Its safe to update here. Hackintosh iDeneb v1.6 1.5.8 wich is a based 1.5.7 installation with 1.5.8 delta update already installed. Updated, rebooted with -f -v switch. That's all.
  2. Ok im pissed, Sapphire 4850 1gb (dvi+hdmi+vga)...

    Thanks to richard for all the headeaches, but finally ive swapped my Sapphire for an Asus GTX280 216sp. Installed and updated leopard with ZERO problems on my setup: using the enabler and the nvidia drivers the card works like a charm. I even played Colin McRae Rally MAC demo at full detail with no hiccups, it works like a charm. Finally im so damn HAPPY!
  3. GeForce 200 series support

    Thank you for your tips. I got my EANGTX260 216SP working using the tips above. Here's what i did: - Installed a fresh iDeneb v1.6 1.5.8 Lite selecting all needed drivers, also Nvidia ones. - Vanilla Kernel + Chamaleon RC1 (since i dont like not even a bit of the 2) - Once rebooted i noticed that there was that damn black screen. - Rebooted with -s and removed all the kext starting with ATI*.* ,GeFo*.*,NV*.* - Rebooted, now Leopard shows standard res and unknown VGA. - Installed the Injector/Enabler located here from Netkas: http://netkas.org/?p=107 - Rebooted. - Now Leopard sees my VGA correctly, Name,Model and VRAM is correct. - Installed Injector/Enabler again for FIRST (http://netkas.org/?p=107) then PATCHED GTX200 drivers located here: http://rapidshare.de/files/47522089/NVIDIA...6.mpkg.zip.html - After the installation, the Nvidia programs asks me to reboot. Leave the window open, using OSX86Tools clear Extensions Permissions and Extensions Cache. Ive did also Fix Permissions, but maybe its not needed. - Rebooted and BAM! Everything working like a charm :D Hope it helps somebody!

    Besides, i was using beta 4. Ill follow your steps about switchres..if you can,tell me if after enabling resolutions with SRX you can still see them in safe mode? Im with no compatible lancard,so im forced to do everything in safe mode..

    Just deleted my SL install due to my anger....jesus... i didnt saw that method: so you're telling me that is working on my Sapphire as well? Refreshrate its a thing that i cant fix, not on my samsung syncmaster at least. The display isnt even recognized, still unknown... Anyway....i need to test that method then.....so far i only got black screens.

    Fine,got port terminators thing. Still my precedent post is left unanswered..

    I mate! I managed to' get snowosx working and currently im able to' boot in safe mode to' play around with res. Ive installed evo and patched the 4800driver as you said,then reinstalled it with kexthelper. Ive not enabled screen sharing but ive installed switchresx. Now before doing anything SR asks me to' reboot. Do i have to' reboot before setting a custom res or not? Please give me a walktrough,i cant understand how SR works..and no screen sharing coz no eth driver yet working...

    No luck.It keeps me saying that kextcache requires an argoument -- -m oh god

    Okay i fixed the problem, still SL cant boot. From another post ive grabbed an alternate mach kernel, now at least it boots in safe mode. It doesnt boot in normal mode tho, it doesnt get a KP either. it remains stuck ad "unable to unload dont_steal_mac_os_x" something like that. I saw an a_tools directory with drivers: im supposed to do something post installation under safe mode?
  10. Ho guys, i have an ide hdd partitioned under win7 with 10gb just for sl. Using snowosx dvd, ive Tried to do a clean install. Erased osx partition then journaled it, i tried as adviced by the installer to do the dsdt patching but it comes up with errors like unmountable volume and not enough free space. Anyway i skipped this part and installed the os without problems, but on reboot i got kp just when the white screen plus Apple logo appears.The kp seems generic,i cant understand whats wrong with it. Any thoughts? How i can get the dsdt working? Im missing something? Do i need to' change something bios-related? Thanks to all!

    Mate did u installed snow over a leo installation or from scratch? Cos i cant do the dsdt part as it says not enough space and volume read only.im doing this using installer from DVD after i prepared the disk journaled with disk utility. Any advice would be great!
  13. Ok im pissed, Sapphire 4850 1gb (dvi+hdmi+vga)...

    Okay, first thank you for the huge informations you provided, you're awesome! So in the end i got that the problem is related to 4:3 and HZ using DVI. Unfortunately i dont have other macs around, just alot of pcs using windows. A question: u did all of this directly from third port (vga) or you started with DVI then switched to vga after turning the pc off? 1) Im about to install SL with a distro like SnowOSX, hope it works.... i wonder if i can do such operations under Safe Mode instead of using remote control because im kinda confused on manual commands. 2) I assume that safe mode loads vesa drivers instead of the installed ones, so if i boot in safe mode i should get my standard display working? Isnt there a command to force VESA mode, like you set Graphic Mode? Because if we can force vesa mode we can avoid all the stuff about blind commanding and so on. 3) So the SKU# is the same as mine, we have the very same card. Im not bothered to use vga instead of dvi: for windows gaming is fine thought. I just want to get this at working and i will be happy. 4) Ive tried to install switchresx with Leo: althought i setup a custom resolution, it doesnt seem to do anything at all when i boot in osx. So my question is, im missing something, or switchres works only with drivers and not with standard vga cards? 5) i have an eeepc here running xp. If i enable sharing and fill in the ip of my osx86 hack, i can use a standard vnc client to get the remote access running? Many thanks for the patience mate, i sense we are near to something. Have you tested some 3d games or apps, or benchmarked the card? How well does it performs? Im curious to know if ilife, photoshop and stuff works good.
  14. Ok im pissed, Sapphire 4850 1gb (dvi+hdmi+vga)...

    Well, we know already that via DVI theres no support for 16:9 resolutions, only 4:3. That would explain why u get only good 16:9 resolutions over VGA. Lets go step by step. You said u used another machine, care to explain? How you managed to use screen sharing with the other machine, via another vga card and two pci-e slots? Are you using dongles, or just the default VGA port of the card? If what u said is true, maybe we got the problem here. The out of sync screen can be triggered by an erroneus hz reporting from the driver to the monitor; if we set using a string a resolution like 100hz, you should get a good refresh rate. 85hz via dvi, you got 56. If we try with the same res, a setting like 94 hz, we should get closer to 60hz. Even 100hz should provide a good setup. Second, whats the serial of your card, the model number? Mine is: PN 288-be104-101sa , SKU# 11132-34-20r. What you modified in ATI4800Controller? Where the hell is located? Have you installed any drivers beside Evoenabler.kext? I assume youre using Leopard? I know im flooding you with questions but PLEASE youre the only one who seems to have my same vga that got it working at least.... ...if you can please post your ATI4800Controller and files you used, maybe a step by step guide. If the refresh rate is really the culprit here, maybe we can get netkas to look for a solution! HUGE THANKS!
