  1. I'm also experiencing the same problems with my ASUS GeForce 550Ti GTX.Blue screen on changing resolution, artefacts after waking from display sleep (or not waking at all), resuming from computer sleep doesn't work. Had no problem with my now almost dead GeForce 8800GTS, but foolishly read somewhere that the card (above) worked OOB and bought it a week ago so I'm thinking of going back to Lion for now. EDIT: replaced the 550 Ti GTX with a 640 GT and everything is right as rain.
  2. Thanks for your guide JD! I've been putting off going from 10.5.8 to 10.6 for a while and decided to give it a try. Your guide worked flawlessly! As I have an nVidia GeForce 8800GTS 512, I removed the EVOenabler.kext as mentioned above by Ibananov and after using my own dsdt.aml, edited the com.apple.Boot.plist with this additional entry: <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>y</string> Everything works perfectly!
  3. Acer Travelmate USB ports not working.

    Maybe this will help http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...t&p=1020710
  4. USB not working in 10.5.6

    I just updated from iAtkos 10.5.5 using Software Update to 10.5.6 and my USB devices no longer mounted until I replaced the kexts linked in this thread, thanks very much! The kexts are located in /System/Library/Extensions/ Unzip the kext files and then use Terminal (I find this easier than drag'n'drop with authentication) to delete and copy the files across. To delete the kexts, make sure you have super user access "sudo -s", then: rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBMassStorage.kext Assuming you unzipped your files onto your Desktop and your name is yehia, to copy the new files: cp -R /Users/yehia/Desktop/IOSUBFamily.kext /System/Library/Extensions/ cp -R /Users/yehia/Desktop/IOSUBMassStorage.kext /System/Library/Extensions/ It might help to remove the extensions cache: rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext After you've done that you'll need to repair permissions using Disk Utlity and reboot. I hope that helps.
  5. How to change kernel at boot?

    The default kernel is mach_kernel If you have another kernel in the root directory, to start with it just type the file name at the Darwin prompt (press F8 at boot). eg. mach_kernel.backup will initiate that kernel.
  6. Losing it all

    Heh, what a way to start my blog eh? While trying to increase the size of my 'startup disk' partition in OS X I accidently created a new 'unallocated' partition over my NTFS one... Oh well, good thing I backed up the important stuff... I think... besides, I was starting to get really annoyed with Windows XP x64, about time I got back to the 32-bit version. At some point I'm going to get this partition sorted out tonight!
