  1. Yes, however note that the 3945abg is not supported (currently a semi-working beta kext exists but only allows for connection to non-secured AP's) and as you might have read the BCM57xx (5752 I assume) isn't supported with 64bit (the 10.5 leopard kext works for 32bit tho). You could however try to get a dell 1390 wifi card or some other supported from ebay for very little. Indeed, yesterday I fixed my desktop install with your bootcd, I was testing some sleep stuff and had to hard reset which had me hanging with a grey screen; Bootcd, revert, reboot, fixed. I was hoping to find a solution other than hacking the dsdt since I know nearly nothing about it but I think you are right. What do you mean by slug? I'm planning on buying a Asrock ion 330 and put osx on it with osxbmc.
  2. I doubt that will solve your mouse lag since it is for itunes/qt lag specific, but it probably won't screw your system. The sleepenabler.kext on that site does work btw! 32bit and 64bit; http://osx86.sojugarden.com/files/Extensio...nabler.kext.zip Edit: scrap that, it lags my system completely after waking up. Can someone else confirm?
  3. Im guessing its not really messed up, but osx tries to resume a hybernate, I fixed it by booting osx with a bootloader installed on another partition. Once rebooted normally all works fine again. (asus maximus extreme btw)
  4. Indeed, and make sure you have <key>device-properties</key> right before <string>"gfx-efi-string-here"</string> Edit: I've attached the plist from /Extra to make it easier. PLEASE NOTE IT'S x86_64 Does anyone want to get their hands dirty and try a to hex edit AppleBCM5701.kext 64bit to work with the broadcom 5752 (vendorid:14e4, deviceid:1600) and possibly other BCM cards? Apple removed AppleBCM5751.kext so I don't even know if this modification is even possible. com.apple.Boot.plist.zip
  5. You could simply make a 3rd plist like .32plist and .64plist but with the string/removed graphicsenabler and then an option in postinstall and rebuild scripts to use that one.
  6. (to everyone else; this is the plist from /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/, not from /Extra!) com.apple.Boot.plist.zip
  7. I do notice a higher xbench score with the EFI string, for example open-gl went from ~80fps to 165fps.
  8. Np, not trying to hijack a threat or anything, feel free to add this to any future updates you make. I'm still looking at (lid)sleep.
  9. The funniest thing just happened; I restored 10.6.1 from usb disk to my laptops internal hdd this morning and ran the rebuild mkext script which lead me to the typo in .64plist. Now I just rebooted and fingerscroll works.. Anyway I used these kexts to get audio and trackpad working on 64bit: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=175372 (the updated ones) Now on to fixing sleep, and could anyone verify that screen sharing is bugged? I can connect to my pc running 10.6.1 too and see the initial screen, I can type and control mouse but the screen never refreshes. Connecting from my pc to my laptop works fine (8800gt using efi string). Edit: I got SL to recognize the gfx as Quadro NVS 110M EFI Open a terminal as root (or sudo) and type "nano /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist" make it look like this: <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string></string> <key>device-properties</key> <string>5c0400000100000001000000500400001700000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000010 101060000007fff04000e0000004e00560050004d000000200000000100000000000000000000000 0 0000000000000000000000000000001c000000400030002c00660062006f00660066007300650074 0 000000800000000000200360000004100410050004c002c006100750078002d0070006f007700650 0 72002d0063006f006e006e0065006300740065006400000008000000010000001c00000064006500 7 6006900630065005f00740079007000650000000f0000004e5644412c506172656e7424000000410 0 410050004c00300030002c0069006e00760065007200740065007200000008000000000000002200 0 0004100410050004c002c0067007200610079002d007000610067006500000008000000010000003 2 0000004100410050004c002c006200610063006b006c0069006700680074002d0063006f006e0074 0 072006f006c0000000800000001000000420000004100410050004c00300030002c0062006c00610 0 63006b00730063007200650065006e002d0070007200650066006500720065006e00630065007300 0 0000800000000000008100000006d006f00640065006c0000001e0000006e5669646961205175616 4 726f204e5653203131304d20454649160000006200750069006c0074002d0069006e000000050000 0 00022000000400030002c006400650076006900630065005f00740079007000650000000b0000006 4 6973706c61791c000000400031002c006200750069006c0074002d0069006e000000040000002200 0 000400031002c006400650076006900630065005f00740079007000650000000b000000646973706 c 617920000000400031002c0063006f006d00700061007400690062006c00650000000e0000004e56 4 4412c4e564d616314000000400030002c006e0061006d0065000000120000004e5644412c4469737 0 6c61792d411c000000400030002c006200750069006c0074002d0069006e00000004000000140000 0 0400030002c004e0056004d00540000005c0000000a037f204c2d1c0278051a044807d0056006000 0 41041d0421040000f0c1410700000100000000ff0000000000000000000000000000000000000000 0 000000000000000ffff00000000000000000000010000000000000014000000400031002c006e006 1 006d0065000000120000004e5644412c446973706c61792d421200000049004f004e0061006d0065 0 000000b000000646973706c617920000000400030002c0063006f006d00700061007400690062006 c 00650000000e0000004e5644412c4e564d616324000000400031002c00630061006e002d0068006f 0 074002d0070006c0075006700000004000000100000004e005600430041005000000018000000040 0 0100000003000c0000000000000a000000002a00000049004f0050004d004900730050006f007700 6 50072004d0061006e00610067006500640000000500000001</string> </dict> </plist> (please note the string is 1 line and does not contain any spaces or returns) and then "nano /Extra/com.apple.boot.plist" remove these lines: <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>y</string> And do the same for /Extra/.32plist and /Extra/.64plist if you care to use /Extra/rebuild_mkext.command For any of the readers that do not have a NVS110M please read this: http://forum.netkas.org/index.php/topic,104.0.html On how to obtain your machine specific GFX EFI string. If anyone is interested Ohh yea, you could add the string to /Extra/com.apple.boot.plist instead of /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist but make sure you add it to .32plist and .64plist too.
  10. By the way, there is a typo in .64plist which is placed in /Extra and gets called by rebuild_mkext.command; X84_64 should be x86_64
  11. It doesn't really matter if its in or out, once it presents you the boot menu it has done its job(Thats why you can swap the boot cd for the SL dvd); boot from the cd that will give you the boot menu with your usb hdd listed, select the usb hdd and you're off
  12. larryo: You could try to restore your install dvd to another medium like usb hdd, I had some trouble with switching cds and refreshing the chameleon menu. Then I restored the DVD to a usb hdd (could be a usb stick for that matter) and it worked fine. leppy: True but with leopard I had lid sleep working without normal sleep ever working (didn't really care so haven't tried), but that was with clamshelldisplay.kext, which afaik isn't being developed anymore. I do know sleep+lid sleep works on some laptops trough a dsdt hack, but I'm just too noob when it comes to dsdt. For scroll, idk it's not really a prio but I do like it.
  13. Leppy, thanks for this great guide and bootdisk! Had iPC 10.5.6 on my d620 and now 10.6.1 retail 64bit, so nice and so much more stable! Only got 2 things that I need to fix; (lid) sleep and 1/2 finger scroll. So if anyone has any suggestions on those I would love to hear them. Looked at dsdt patch for lid/sleep and some recompiled voodoops2 kexts for the trackpad but so far neither is working.

    [GUIDE] Chameleon 2 RAID - More complete tutorial

    Thanx for this! Working smooth with SL 10.6.1. I simply made a restore to a usb disk, created a stripe with 2x 250gb and restored it back to the raid. Then followed a guide which had me hanging at the boot1: error. I then did the fdisk part and it worked!
  15. Thnx! works on a d620 with iPC 10.5.6
