  1. 10.4.8 Seeded to Developers

    Does anyone know where I might look for a copy of the update to play around with?
  2. Well, I don't know about non-legacy VMWare being too advanced, but it would seem at the least that the legacy BIOS has a different way of handling certain hardware. Either way, a legacy VM fixed it right up, and OS X is currently installing. I'm so glad that worked. I was getting sick of having OS X stuck running off a virtual drive, and hence limited to use inside VMWare.
  3. Hmm. I don't know why people are having trouble with the link. I'll throw it up as an attachment also, although the external versioin is more likely to be updated more regularly. @Junio: Did FF really report the server as www.moreaboutmonkey.com? The domain is www.moreaboutmoney.com... And yes, it does really exist. Thanks for the props guys. I'll try to answer any questions to the best of my ability, although I'm no OS X genius.
  4. Hi, I just installed OS X for the millionth time, but for the first time on a laptop. Out of the box, my Broadcom ethernet is not detected at all. No sign of any eth devices anywhere. I figure installing a driver would remedy this problem, but as far as finding one I've run out of places to look. From XP, the compatable hardware IDs are as follows: PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_169D&REV_21 PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_169D PCI\VEN_14E4&CC_020000 PCI\VEN_14E4&CC_0200 PCI\VEN_14E4 PCI\CC_020000 PCI\CC_0200 If anyone could please help me hunt down a fix to get this recognized I would really appreciate it. I have seen little blurbs of discussions on adding device IDs to certain files in OS X, or at least something along those lines, but I have no understanding of what needs to be done. Thanks in advance, bezeek
  5. This is a guide I wrote myself for the installation of 10.4.7 from JaS new DVD. It's overkill, and I'll be the first to admit it, for anyone who has done one of these installations before. So if you have any experience with installing OS X, you really aren't going to need this guide. Anyhow, the guide can be found here. You may have gathered from the end of url that this page is loaded dynamically, and yes, I do plan on keeping this guide updated for new releases. (I already did a fresh-install just to compile this one, and I plan on doing so many more times.) Also, pardon the ad at the top. It's for a business I work part time, as well as my mother, and she asked me to post the guide on her site with a plug for the business. Please do check it out though, the company offers a load of help and oppertunity. Please let me know of any corrections/additions that you would like to see in this guide. Enjoy. [Edit: Attached the guide since people seem to be having trouble with the link. Keep in mind that the external version will probobly be updated more regularly, so if you can, I would suggest using the link instead.] 10.4.7___1.1.txt
  6. JAS 10.4.7 install dvd

    You're welcome for that repack I'm glad to see people have been successful with it.
  7. Good Bye

    It's really a shame to see you go. You've helped bring things a long way since x86 first hit the scene, and the 10.4.7 release was pure gold, working perfectly after the standalone update shot me down in all my best efforts. I hope work on these releases continues, (by others, or perhaps by you again sometime,) but now I believe many people are undeserving. When I was having trouble with the standalone 10.4.7 update, I started again from scratch. I documented each step I took, the errors I recieved, and put forth efforts to best diagnose each problem I encountered. When I couldn't fix my problems, I accepted that and decided to stick with 10.4.6. I also didn't let my efforts go to waste. I reformed that documentation and published it in hopes of helping others who were having trouble. It didn't kill me to try, and I doubt it's killed anyone else with half a brain either. People shouldn't expect to rely on you and the other software engineers to take care of everything for them. It doesn't take any sort of expert to know that. You've done what you can at your own expense, and that in itself is astonishing for the fact that you get no compensation for your time. We'll all miss seeing your work around JaS, (even the ungratefuls, I'm sure,) and I can say that everyone who knew you will miss you as well. (Correct me if I'm wrong guys. Anybody? Good.) Thank you for at least publishing this one last release, and for making it as well as you did. See you around.
  8. I've been unable to. That is Darwin's output from the Install DVD prior to installation. It hasn't gotten any farther then that. Up to that point though, I have tried the VMware to native method's instructions.
  9. I haven't gotten as far as the install when working with the fixed HD, only when running a VM using an emulated HD. Also, I've tried disabling the second processor - no luck. As I said though, everything went smoothly using the same settings with an emulated HD.
  10. Greetings, First off, I've tried EVERYTHING I could find in forums/tutorials/etc. The two screenshots below pretty much explain the situation. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A few things you should know: • I am using the "Mac OS X 10.4.6 x86 Install DVD (JaS)" ISO, mounted with D-Tools 4.03HE (x64.) • The HD I selected for this task is initialized, but not formatted or partitioned in any way. • Running from a virtual hard drive in VMware, OSX installed fine with no errors, but not with a physical hard drive. • The guest output halted after the "error 88" bit for about 5 minutes... • Then halted again after the "PIIXPATA" bit for some odd amount of time (I got sick of it and went to bed.) • (When I woke up) the panic had been called, and the guest disabled the CPU to no surprise. • I have tried the installation with and without all unnecessary hardware disabled (Ethernet, Audio, Floppy, Second Processor.) If anyone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it, and if anyone needs more information, I would be happy to oblige. Thank you, Brian Ziemek
