  1. hi there, I have big problems with getting SL to properly recognize my nVidia 8800GT (G92, 512MB) graphics card. No matter what I try, if it works I always get a colored screen (different colors every time) and nothing else I tried Chameleon RC4 with GraphicsEnabler, EFI string inject in apple.com.Boot.plist, NVInject/Enabler/Darwin, but most of the time my hardware is recognized but I always get the bright colored screen. So I read 10.6.2 can have problems with either HDMI->HDMI or DVI->HDMI and HDCP, the solution apparently is to replace NVDANV50 and NVDAResman with the ones from 10.6.1. So I tried that, but no luck After that I finally () unplugged my LCD TV, this time I got the same old coloured screen, but this time with a messed up " Please restart your computer" dialog. The only thing I can think of is that my LCD monitor also supports HDCP over DVI. Anybody know of other things I could try? So here it goes: Snow Leopard 10.6.2 (Hazard) MSI P55-GD85 4GB Ram 2x 8800GT 512 G92, same problem with single card though Intel Core i7 860 Vanilla kernel BTW Leopard 10.5.8 (iDeneb) works just fine with the 9.8.0 Xoops kernel and NDarwin injector
  2. Yes you can, at least I did and everything continued to work
  3. I have iDeneb v1.6 (Leopard 10.5.8). Don't use the updated Disabler.kext, it will turn your hackintosh into a brick! Instead just backup your /System/Library/Extensions/AppleUpstreamUserClient.kext, remove it, delete /System/Library/Extentions.kext, reboot and you'll have a fully responsive hackintosh
  4. hi there, I have this really weird problem with System Preferences -> Sound not loading. As it turns out this is caused by setting the system language to anything other then the default English language. If I simply move English back to the top in Country settings and restart System Preferences, sound settings load almost immediatly again! Console prints errors like this one: 12/24/09 12:10:58 AM System Preferences[1234] *** -[NSView startMeter]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x1d451cc0 All of this is on an updated iDeneb v1.6 (10.5.8) with Dutch language pack installed from a complete Leopard dvd. Anybody any hints or even better a solution for this rather weird problem?
  5. FYI I installed the slashhack AppleNForceATA (the UNTESTED one) and all seems fine now
  6. So I seem to have fixed the problem: setting maxmem=3072 I don't understand this, wasn't the 4GB problem of NforceATA fixed long before? So does anybody have a (link to) kext for nforce ata that is a. reliable and b. doesn' t have the 4GB problem?
  7. hi there, Still relatively new to this whole MacOSX on common hardware thing, but hey at least I managed to install iDeneb 1.6 and get it up and running, typing this on Leopard right now The problem is during heavy IO I get random KP's related to the IOATAFamily kext. Somewhere I found that the best way to work around this is by not replacing the kext but by using a custom DSDT.aml for your specific hardware. So after some trial and error that's what I did: I now have a working /Extra/DSDT.aml file and verified that Chameleon is using it. However simply importing my music folder from external storage into iTunes gives a KP rather quickly Anybody any tips?
