    Lion 10.7.2 + iCloud final

    People say that this can be fixed by installing Chimera 1.5.4, which did not work for me, though. Edit: Edit2: Worked for me

    DSDT for Asus P8P67-M PRO

    If that is what you want, then is for you.
  3. Have you considered pressing ⌘T, making your Google search and then go back to the tab with your reply? Or ⌘W, which would be what you call "opening a new copy", as this is what Firefox on Windows does when you click the Firefox icon. Making comparisons in different windows rather than different tabs is pretty inconvenient, though. Tabbed Browsing - Firefox Help What he means is probably that every time you open a new Notepad window, the whole applications loads, and as you close it, all the initialization for the application goes to waist. On Mac OS X, TextEdit stays open, requiring only minimal initialization when you open a new document, as the main application is still loaded into RAM. Oh, and you might want to consider less usage of the term "ignorant" when being clueless about certain specifics yourself.
  4. I'm trying to get native power management working for days now. It works (CPU clocks to 100% during boot, gets hot and the fan start spinning faster) - but CPUPLimit is set to the lowest P-State and after the login window appeared, and I'm stuck at 798MHz. I tried the Legacy kext with different model identifies and ThermalProfiles, however I've had no luck. LPC and that kind of stuff is all present, I guess if CPUPLimit is set to 0x0, everything would would as expected. Could somebody please point out how I would get rid of the CPUPLimit? Edit: I DID IT! Not only PLimitDict. You need also to exclude CStateDict and add RestartAction. My sample. <key>ConfigArray</key> <array> <dict> <key>WWEN</key> <true/> <key>model</key> <string>MacBook4,1</string> <!-- Slice added --> <key>restart-actions</key> <dict> <key>cpu-p-state</key> <integer>0</integer> </dict> </dict> </array> <!-- <key>CStateDict</key> <dict> <key>MacBook4,1</key> <string>CSD3</string> <key>MacBook4,1</key> <string>CSD3</string> <key>CSD3</key> <dict> <key>C6</key> <dict> <key>enable</key> <false/> </dict> </dict> </dict> --> <key>ControlArray</key>
  5. Activity Monitor -> click PStateMenu -> Quit process Reminds me that I wanted to recheck every now and then whether the kext is loaded. The latest VoodooPState.kext is always on osx86drivers.sourceforge.net
  6. I have RC5 rev757(I guess) installed, GeneratePStates and GenerateCStates are set to "Yes", and I just tried DropSSDT="Yes", which doesn't work either. LPC, AppleIntelCPUManagement, AppleIntelCPUManagementClient and AppleIntelMeromProfile are loaded, PStates are in the IOReg, CStates aren't. CPU stays at 798MHz. I haven't still given up though, however VoodooPStates.kext with PStateMenuwork fine in the mean time. It works fine with legacy_kernel, btw.
  7. Hi, I use VoodooPState.kext. Maybe that's not really necessary on a Pentium Dual-Core, but I don't really get the DSDT thing. However, PStateChanger was a resource hog for me - it used >17% of the CPU in the lowest PState (Again, Pentium Dual-Core 2.0GHz). So I had a look, figured out that updating the GUI was the main fault, and rewrote the whole thing. 1. New Interface - Less windows-y, more like cpufreq-applet from Gnome. Fits the Mac better. You can customize PStateMenu.app/Resources/cpufreq-xx.png if you don't like the images (google "cpufreq-applet icons") - More efficient, uses less CPU (Yes, the Meter works) 2. Switching based on the theory behind cpufreq-ondemand/conservative (http://www.linuxsymposium.org/archives/OLS/Reprints-2006/pallipadi-reprint.pdf) from Linux (including later improvements): - CPU utilization based on core with highest load rather than total - On Demand: When frequency raising is needed, clock it to 100%, next time lower the pState if possible to a state which keeps CPU utilization around 80% - Conservative: Smooth upscaling, not recommended by anybody, as ondemand clocks higher but gets work faster done. This is kind of what PStateChanger did. - Switches every 0.18 seconds (CPUFreq switches every 0.11 seconds, but 0.18 cuts the cpu usage by 50% for me) More or less as good as Linux (cpufreq-ondemand is written by Intel guys (Pallipadi et. al.)), AppleIntelCPUManagement.kext shouldn't be much different, too. This is basically a full-fledged Intel Enhanced SpeedStep implementation. Download Binary (32+64Bit) Version 0.2 (32+64Bit) Source code Project homepage You find the latest VoodooPState.kext always on osx86drivers.sourceforge.net Have fun with it.

    10.6.7 Update released

    Worked fine for me (with 10.6.5 IOUSBFamily.kext, didn't work on 10.6.6 either). IO80211Family.kext was broked, too. All above have those errors, I guess related to older 10.4.0 legacy kernel: kxld[com.apple.kpi.iokit]: This symbol set has the following unresolved symbols: kxld[com.apple.kpi.iokit]: __ZN14IOPMrootDomain17createPMAssertionEyjP9IOServicePKc kxld[com.apple.kpi.iokit]: __ZN14IOPMrootDomain18releasePMAssertionEy kxld[com.apple.kpi.iokit]: __ZN14IOPMrootDomain19getPMAssertionLevelEy kxld[com.apple.kpi.iokit]: __ZN14IOPMrootDomain19setPMAssertionLevelEyj kxld[com.apple.kpi.private]: This symbol set has the following unresolved symbols: kxld[com.apple.kpi.private]: _mbuf_get_traffic_class kxld[com.apple.kpi.private]: _mbuf_set_traffic_class
  9. Hi, I just updated from 10.6.4 to 10.6.5, but my keyboard (connected via PS/2) doesn't work anymore. The driver is VoodooPS2 with dong-fixes. Usually, all I ever saw is this: Now, I get this: Is this due to 10.6.5, or am I just using a bad version of VoodooPS2Controller? Regards

    Giulystalling Snow Leopard

    Page 3, Seriously? I guess I must have missed the Über-method that was introduced after Empire-EFI and the discovery that you can create the USB-Stick without Mac OS X. Or are we back again at the iDeneb, iAtkos, Kalyways etc. era?

    Update to 10.6.4

    If you use vanilla mach_kernel or legacy_kernel via com.apple.Boot.plist, hit the update button. If you replaced mach_kernel with legacy_kernel, you want to rename it to legacy_kernel and adjust the /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist first: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>legacy_kernel</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>5</string> (...) </dict> </plist>
  12. ... or using prasys' USB stick method from Linux-LiveCD/DVD. If you have a GNU/Linux distribution installed on your computer, skip steps 1+2 1) Get your favorite GNU/Linux Live-CD/DVD and burn it. 2) Boot it 3) Change to root (sudo -s) 4) Download the Giulystall-Archive (MD5: 3c6d1fe7c0b3891fcf73027793e0ccd8) and extract it (tar xvjf Giulystall.tar.bz2; cd Giulystall) 5) Modify install.sh (nano install.sh) #Path to your USB Stick or hard drive you want to copy the Install-DVD USBSTICK="/dev/sdx" #Partition Number, may be blank for some usb sticks, or other then "1" (I.e. U3$ PN="1" #Path to vanilla Snow Leopard DVD image (DMG) or /dev/dvd SLDVD="/dev/dvd" #Mount Point the USB stick gets mounted MP="/mnt/SLinstall" #Install legacy_kernel? set to "Y" if so. LEGACY="N" Pretty straight forward. 6) Gather your needed kexts and put them into the Extensions folder 7) Run the script (./install.sh) 8) Reboot, boot the USB-stick, install Mac OS X - After the install it reboots. 9) Boot the USB-Stick again, click next in the installation until the menu bar pops up at the top, and open the Terminal via the "Utilities" menu 10) Modify the install.sh to install to your harddrive and partition where you installed Snow Leopard instead. 11) Run install.sh again 12) Reboot via reboot command on the terminal 13) Choose Snow Leopard drive when Chameleon is booted 12) Enjoy the Mac OS X Welcome video (If you put the right sound kexts into Extensions in step 6, even with sound) If this is voodoo magic and people shouldn't know this, remote the thread. The only differences from prasys' method are using mkfs.hfsplus to create the filesystem, using dd instead of fdisk to write the MBR and omitting the kextcache command which isn't really needed. If you can't boot from the USB-Stick, you may need to set the partition to type "AF" with fdisk. If so, please leave a note, and I'll add a call to fdisk in the script. I haven't tested the script itself, but I have installed Snow Leopard on my Laptop like this. May someone go ahead, click something together in Glade and make a GUI which downloads kexts for particular hardware direct into the Extensions folder. Regards
  13. Hi, I'm about to get a new system. Yes, AMD and DDR3. No Intel. I want to know if these 790FX-boards are able to boot SL. Thank in advance

    Atheros Network Drivers

    Hi, I have an AR5006EG 802.11 b/g Wireless PCI Express Adapter, Dev-ID: 168c:001c That Dev-ID is in the 64Bit-Driver already, so I didn't do anything to it. But it shows up (And showed up before) as a Ethernet-Card. No Airport-Icon, I can't figure out why. The drivers are loaded on boot, but they get unloaded, as they are not needed, because no suitable device found, I guess. Any Idea?
