    Hi Crash! i've readed the post but i have a pkg file not single kext file, ito the pkg file i've expanded using the command pkgutil --expand there isn't any kext file... and into the pkg file there are some other files like an install package. i don't have a mac install to help me, i can only use the terminal app. i'm trying now McDrive for windows that may help me to open a mac disc into windows and to burn a modified mac disc... see you soon. Thanks. Giuliano

    ATI Radeon HD pkg installers 10.5.x & 10.6

    Hi, I'm a newbe I am tring to install Osx86 using the LawlessPPC-Leo-10.5.4-Phenom&AMD distro Is there an installation guide for this ATI packages ? I have downloaded the suitable package for my ATI RADEON HD 3650 AGP but i do not know how to install it I do not know if i have to tell the installer to use the package before confirm to install, or use the package after the installation to tweak the installed os X to get my AGP Card to work I am not sure if the package I downloaded Is the same like the one I can find in the third party extensions list of the installation tool of my iso. I read at http://insanelymac.blogspot.com/2008/09/os...m-released.html that this iso should be yet compatible with ATI RADEON HD 3560 AGP my configuration is explained in described at the post http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...p;#entry1242020 help is appreciated Thanks Giuliano.

    OpenCL Info

    Hi, I'm a newbe I asked help in other topics to install Lawless Leo (maybe mistaking the forum section, because nobody replied to my question) I read about OpenCL info at http://www.macworld.com/article/134858/200...ard_opencl.html Are this OpnCL info usefull to succesfull installing Snow Leopard into my AMD Phenom X4 (here is my configuration http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...;#entry1243705) or they are important to tweak Snow Leopard once it has been installed ? if they are important to install Snow Leopard, how can i run the utility ? once i have the snow leopard iso ? thanks Giuliano.

    Hi, I've done the install without specify any third kext but i got some problems. After reboot i see a screen with corrupted image and can't operate, I think the OS X is installed but i can't get the screen. then i reinstall choosing the ATI RADEON 3650 KEXTS from third-party software and choose ntfs and fat32 too. the install completed but i get blue flash and then black screen no signal to the monitor.. i looked for install correct ATI RADEON 3650 KEXTS http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=107526 i donì't know if they are the same kext i can find personalizing the leopard install selecting ATI RADEON HD 3650 under third-party software i have downloaded and stored in a flash usb drive that mounts perfectly when i plug into the usb during the install procedue. i can use terminal to browse the files stored in the pen drive. but i can figure out how to tell the installer to use the pkg file at the install of Leopard to use the kexts. I looked for guiedes and or instruction, some tells to use the utility Kext Helper 7b, i have downloaded it and stored into the usb pen drive but i don't know how get it to run by terminal (is terminal the only way i have to start commands and apps before install leopard ?) sudo doesn't work in the terminal window. it says "command not found" HELP me, please. Giuliano.

    Hi, I am Giuliano, Italy. I am a skilled developer & system administrator on Microsoft Windows Operating Systems... I am a newbe in the "Mac Thinking" I would try to install LawlessPPC-Leo 10.5.04 Phenom & AMD to introduce me in the Apple World and try to develop a little iPhone application using objective-C, than, of course, I would buy a MacBoock Pro Air to contiune my experience. I read a lot of forums about the topic, and sure, I've tried to install by myself on of the osx86 Iso I tried to install different ISOs (iATKOS, iDeneb, Kalyway and finally Lawless) in different ways different PCs different CPUs different RAM different VGA different HD different DVD Units different keyboard and mouse But no luck on my way... It always happends something wrong: the install finishes but can't boot the distro reboots at the darwin bootloader can't see the hard drive panic error install freezes on language selection window install can't recognize mouse (keyboard worked but only one time...) and other strange things I can't remember   So finally I decide to ask help directly to the community. I decide to be as clear as possible because I read a lot about the topic and I learned that It is much important to be clear explaining the situation. I am sorry if my english Is not much good, I always make some mistakes. Here we go: Using my windows pc... I've downloaded the iso File name: LawlessPPC-Leo-10.5.4-Phenom&AMD.iso MD5 checksum: 2b88542b49f0680e40cbcb7280314c33 [*] i've burned the iso using: Software: Ultra ISO Premium DVD Recorder: Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-216D (SATA interface) DVD Recordable Media: TDK ("life on record") DVD-R (1-16x Speed) 4.7 GB Write Speed: 4x (5.540 Kb/s), the slowest in the dropdown list of burn speeds Write Method: DAO (Disc At Once) I would try to install Lawless iso into my AMD Pc, bought and assembled by me in summer 2008. Chasis : Coller Master Centurion 590 Take a look here PSU : EZCOOL NEW 600W - Ver. 2.2 Take a look here (Sorry only italian link for this PSU) 24p(4+4) 4xSata - 2 Pci-e 6p 8p - 14cm Fan Silent, Energy-Efficient Motherboard : ASUS M3A78 Pro Rev 1.00G / Chipset: AMD 780G/SB700 Take a look here CPU : AMD Phenom X4 9950 "Black Edition" (2.6GHz / 140W) Take a look here Cooler : Thermaltake TMGA2 Take a look here RAM : 2GB (2x1GB) Elite Team DDR II 800 Mhz CL=5-5-5-15, Model TEDD1024M800HC5 Take a look here plugged in dual channel configuration. Vga : ATI Radeon HD 3650, 512 Mb GDDR3 SDRAM, HDTV Out Take a look here DVD : 2 x Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-216D (SATA interface) Take a look here Plugged on SATA Channels 4 (Set as First Boot Device) and 6 HDD : Western Digital Caviar Blue SATA HD, 3Gb/s - 500GB - 8 MB Cache - 7200 RPM Take a look here Plugged on SATA Channel 1 Keyb & Mouse : Note i use a KVM switch Corega Changer (Model MiNi18) Take a look here (this is an old product I can't find it in producer site) to use same monitor, mouse and keybord for two PCs (I hit CTRL twice to switch from one to another PC) but i've tried with no luck using microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse too... I didn't try to use normal PS/2 keyboard and mouse because now I haven't... Important BIOS Setting I think to tell you: USB Legacy is Enable SATA is Enable SATA Type is AHCI SATA RAID is disabled DVDs and HD are on different SATA channel DVD is the first bootable device HD is the second bootable device I read in forums about some "Kext files", "kernel version", "boot options" and (if I have understanded well) Kext file may be used during darwin boot and / or selected during the installation procedure (configuration). I don't know how to configure the Iso to use the correct kext files and / or the correct kernel version at boot time and not sure about the correct boot options to use. First, I ask you if you may tell me a link to find a basic tutorial about modifing the Iso so I try by myself to make a correct iso to install in my AMD Second, I write now the main problem i have installing: Once i booted darwin with the -v option (if i not use -v option i get a grey screen with a beautiful bitten gray apple in the center) follows many lines that apparently tells me that Is is all ok.. except for some kind of outputs like OHCI Controller will be unloaded across sleep ApplePS2Keyboard: Unexpected Acknowledge from PS/2 Controller CODE Signing: CS_INVALID_PAGE P=41 [configd] Clearing CS_VALID mDsnResponder [48] cannot contact helper getHelper_Port mDsnDynamicStoreSetConfig Mach Comunication Failed ICPISend Invalid destination port could this lines tell me where is the problem ? After follow the graphic part of the install where I see the window asks for language selection but the PC is freezed, mouse and keyboard doesn't work. So i have to switch off the PC from the PSU because the switch power button doesn't work. During the many installation I tried sometimes happend that the install stops showing "debug kernel panic" and in the detail stack something telling like the cause was in the PS/2 Controller. Now I am currently trying different bios setting... and different boot options using always mach_kernel ... I Hope in your help Regards Giuliano.
