  1. OSX 10.7.3 reboots

    Since you can boot from the cd then you must have corrupted the chameleon boot loader on the hdd. the fact that the boot is successful using the temporary chameleon boot loader from the cd just means that the osx installed on the hdd still works. Something has to tell the computer what to do once it is turned on and a corrupt boot loader won't tell it much. Loading a boot loader from a disk or thumb drive does not fix the broken boot loader on the hdd.
  2. Looking for some help getting my built in wifi to work. First I am running iPortable snow off of an external drive. I have everything working, although need some tweeks. The only thing that is not working is the built in wifi. I do have the RTL8187b realtek drivers and it works, I have a dongle 8187 that I use to run online when I boot OSX. Here is the kicker. the internal shows as 8197, no big deal as I added it to the kext. when I use system profiler the on board wifi shows up as a "composite device" an when I look at the device it shows up with the RTL information. if I use DSDTSE and look at the USB devices the onboard wifi shows and it does not have a device name like the dongle. As the computer is booting up the onboard wifi flashes as though it is being probed. I think this will be a simple fix but I am not sure what needs to be tweeked. Is it the kernal or the usb kext or can it be done with DSDT mod. willing to try, only need slight guidance. YK
  3. LAN Marvell Yukon-2 driver

    well I didn't try to look at the source myself. I am sure that your driver is different , but if you look at the freebsd for yukon2 would it help find the thing you are having trouble with? as I am not trying to write a program, I am only able to offer ideas, and ask questions. I would like you to be successful. Keep up the good work.
  4. LAN Marvell Yukon-2 driver

    Slice Not sure if you have been here for info, maybe it will help. I copied this from a search I was doing online. Maybe the links might help you figure out what you need. "The driver is now on our Foundry27 web site. The new network protocol framework (io-pkt) can be found at the following link: http://community.qnx.com/sf/projects/networking Please follow the instructions found on this page to download and install the software. For the Marvell Yukon2 driver, the “Experimental” driver is devnp-msk.so. This driver object can be found in “sys/dev /msk”, and the actual source code is found in “sys/dev/pci/if_msk.c”. When you do the build, you’ll find the denp-msk.so binary under your staging area /x86/lib/dll. It only builds for x86 because this was the only platform we could test it on. We are looking for feedback in how this driver is working. We would like to be able to make the appropriate updates, if required, to this driver. Therefore, please let us know how this works for you so thta we may work to provide the most complete working driver."
  5. Leo4Allv4.1 AMD Released

    koolboy87 leave everything as it is and boot from your leo4all dvd when it comes up select the disk utility from the drop down and you should see all the partitions. select only the partition that you has for mac os and reformat only that partition as mac journal. since you are in this program and you have selected the mac partition go to the top and select the i nformation icon and write down the disk and sector. you can use this to boot into mac os manually at start up using the rd=disk_s_ command _ is the number of the disk and sector. eg rd=disk0s2. now continue the install of leo4all. of course you need to correct your errors from the first time. do not be discouraged as you may have to reinstall mac os a few times to make sure you have selected the correct parts for your set up. I suspect you will need to use the manual rd selection as above until you get the ppf patched disk burned and installed from it.
  6. Leo4Allv4.1 AMD Released

    koolboy87 to patch leo4all you need to have the iso file on your drive as you would when you burned it. now you have to apply the patch file, it makes changes to the iso file and now you burn the patched iso. this gives you the patched dvd to use. there are many successes with this for different systems. I cannot say for sure that it will work on yours but I would think there is a very good chance it will.
  7. Multiple Sound Output Devices?

    ah .. my mistake I use it to separate my system alerts from my headphones or speakers. not really two outputs per se. have never tried to use 2 at once but I see what you are aiming at.
  8. Multiple Sound Output Devices?

    look for a program called "soundsource" works on my mac but I have not yet tried it on my Hac. allows you to select multiple inputs and outputs to be active at once.
