  1. nforce4sata MIA?

    link's up for me, might want to check your dns, developer.berlios.de resolve to ''.
  2. Running out of disk space? ...WTF?!

    google search 'whatsize', it's a mac app that makes it easy to see what files are taking up space on your computer. kinda like omni disksweeper, but free.
  3. regarding natit and now no boot

    i had a similar issue w/ natit_dual 0.02, i was able to resolve by using relevant kexts and frameworks from 10.4.8 combo updater. basically did what walterav described at http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...c=34244&hl=
  4. USB keyboard and PS/2

    i've heard mixing ps/2 and usb mice/keyboards causes trouble for osx86, i bet your keyboard works if you use a usb mouse.
  5. .kext files are now folders?

    you try using Disk Utility and repairing permissions? That fixed a few that went funky on me from manual manipulation in terminal.
  6. parallels on amd

    PRocker's technique will work, and old thread w/ the info is up if you need more detail: http://forum.insanelymac.com/lofiversion/i...php/t37734.html
  7. a little help needed...

    you can get rw support for ntfs through macfuse, but it's slow and quirky. Google it if interested, but note it is a pretty manual process to install macfuse and the ntfs driver, and for mounting the volume.
  8. 10.4.8 JaS/Tubgirl hang on loginwindow

    there are patched loginwindows to help w/ boot problems, i got one off the boards here once. i think in an older post of mine i pointed out the thread where i got it. it is different from either of the loginwindow apps you've tried, worth a shot
  9. nvidia 7600 GT not booting error

    i have a 7600gs, i've found things working well w/ natit + the opengl frameworks and relevant kexts from 10.4.8. I'm running semthex's 8.8.1 kernel. i wouldn't think you'd need a full reinstall in any case.
  10. gavspav, I'm guessing you're adding effects under your picture, make sure you click the + sign next to your picture in the effect stack, not the plus at the top of the palette. cebiti, i findthe gui very fast in CIFH running a 7600GS AGP (albatron, 256MB). Using agpgart 2.2, natit, 10.4.8 kexts and frameworks, 128M agp aperture set in bios. i've heard that CIFH crashes regularly (even on real macs), but it is a neat tech demo. my scrolling is normal in firefox too, not slow at all.
  11. 16bpp real - 32bpp should be!

    When you go to System Preferences --> Displays, what is shown in the "Colors:" popup menu on the Display pane? Mine shows "Millions" and is displaying w/o banding. I'm just curious if "Millions" isn't available, or is grayed out, or is selected but truly doesn't seem to be Millions?
  12. Google Sketchup 6 kernel error! semthex sse2

    crashes on me in same way, so you aren't alone. i'm running amd64 (early one, no sse3) w/ natit and 10.4.8 opengl frameworks on my 7600 gs.
  13. JaS 10.4.8 DVD install problems...

    no, this isn't normal. guessing poor support for your motherboard, or possibly hardware going flaky. search the boards for people w/ similar mobo as you, see if they had issues.
  14. First restart problem

    sounds like an issue w/ loginwindow app, i used to have issues w/ the "about this mac" feature that i fixed w/ a patched loginwindow app. we had different problems, but maybe same solution will work. take the loginwindow.zip prsubway links at http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=39390, backup the existing loginwindow.app in /System/Library/CoreServices, delete it, put the one in the zip in it's place, and reboot. hope it works! if not it shouldn't hurt, but if you wanted to put your existing one back after you try this just boot into single-user mode ("-s" flag), blow away the loginwindow.app i suggested, put your old one back, then restart.
  15. open it w/ any text editor. Or if you have xcode installed you could open it w/ the property list editor. just go to /Applications/Utilities/Terminal, open Terminal, type 'sudo open /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist', type you password, then edit and save it w/ whatever mac os x opens it with. if plists aren't associated w/ anything you'll get to pick the program, you could just use /Applications/TextEdit or something. I would just delete the "-v", not the entire kernel flags key and string. It is fine to have empty <string></string>, and that way they'll be there if you want to ever pass any other kernel flags in the future (or who knows, maybe you already have different kernel flags along with the "-v"). You'll probably want to learn how to use vi (or emacs, or nano, whatever) so you can edit files w/o the gui, it is a useful skill for trying to run mac os x on non-official hardware .
