  2. [Info] 10.6.8 è tra noi

    @fiox confermo, anche nel mio sistema l'unico modo per non farlo bloccare è stato patchare il dsdt. Nel mio caso non funziona nemmeno tramite la sostituzione dei vecchi kext. Ecco come ho sostituito il vecchio: Device (PCI0) { Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A03")) Name (_ADR, Zero) Name (_PRW, Package (0x02) { Con il nuovo: Device (PCI0) { Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A03")) Name (_UID, Zero) Name (_PRW, Package (0x02) {
  3. Updated to 10.6.4 without problems Here are new patched drivers for audio and wifi: http://deviato.wordpress.com/2010/06/19/10...-driver-update/ Remove SleepEnabler.kext, it's useless for this system and will cause kernel panic.
  4. The grub patch is a very outdated method. As far as I remember, there was only a patch for 32bit version of grub, and even on linux isn't needed anymore due to KMS improvements (look here). Moreover, that patch worked only with Chameleon 2.0 RC1. Starting from RC2 the effect was null, maybe for some Chameleon internal re-initialization. Now you have to use the much better and simpler solution with the same patch directly integrated into chameleon source code (mine or AnV ACPI Loader, not tested by me).
  5. nVidia 9800 GT 1GB DDR3

    Remove all the enablers, use only NVEnabler. Remeber to remove also the "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" string, if any, in com.apple.Boot.plist.
  6. GMA X4500

    You cannot say for sure, and in any case, it would be good for Core GPUs: the driver is there, but we don't have a method yet. Thanks, I'll take a look No.. I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 with GMA4500 with no GFX0, and a Core i3 desktop, that I cannot even boot with iGPU enabled, but only with the external PCIe Nvidia Card (I cannot enable both in the bios). What do you mean, are you running in vesa mode? Or with AppleIntelHDGraphics kexts from mbp update? However, as said before, I can't boot, so no resolution. Don't know if I can without the kexts, I already did the mbp update. Not exactly.. it's done with driver update and with some tools, but it's not a good thing to replace the video bios with that of another card, it would in almost every case break the functionality. However it's possible to patch in ram, cause the vbios is copied at boot in shadow, that's what is done in 915resolution patch to correct the resolution table. You can experiment, but it's hard to decompile and patch..

    Lucky you, I don't have a GFX0 section in my dsdt. Did you add it manually? I tried adding it in AGP and in PCIE sections, but nothing happened, the card wasn't showed. Where is located yours?
  8. GMA X4500

    I was just about to say that.. I think that the first step is to make IntelHD work on Core i3/i5. Once done, the second is to fake the device with dsdt on X4500. Currently the driver doesn't work on my Core i3, I've tried to compile and run at boot the switcher, but it always says "No matching driver found". Looking at source code, there's a loop that tries to enumerate all the instances of driver with class name "AppleGraphicsControl". If any instance is found, is asked to the driver to switch active card through "setMuxState", else the program returns that error. So AppleGraphicsControl have to be loaded, and the only method left is to fake device. What we need first is a dsdt and complete IOReg dump from a real new MacBookPro.
  9. GMA X4500

    Well, the power of intel is not comparable to that of nvidia, they could have included to meet the needs of gamers or 3d renderers, and maybe that user is true in saying that apple is still developing a new driver. However I think that the drivers are ready, but apple is encounteing problems trying to prevent them to run on x4500

    This is interesting.. http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p...p;postcount=554

    You have to edit the ids in Info.plist, replace 2a42 with 2e32, and hex-edit the binaries of the kexts, replacing the hardcoded ids 8680422a with 8680322e
  12. GMA X4500

    Are you able to turn on both the cards on your pc? I tried on a P7H55-M Pro, but the internal iGPU (8086:0042) can only be enabled by disabling the PCIe card. Maybe a MB/Bios limit.. Tip: try starting the program from the terminal, it gives more output.
  13. Osinstall and new retail 10.6.3 disk

    I've patched the new OSInstall, you can find it here: http://deviato.wordpress.com/2010/05/06/os...ned-hard-disks/
