  1. Hello, I've recently updated to 10.4.9 with the new 8.9.1 universal kernel. Things seemed to be running smoothly after I got all the kinks worked out. I had to do a 10.4.7 LAN fix and some video issues. Overall, things seemed pretty stable. I continued customizing. I installed a new PowerManagement.kext to fix battery meter issues. I installed a driver for my wireless card. And I installed Parallels. Then I started to run into some an odd issue that I had never experienced before in 10.4.8 or .7. Issue: Windows Sharing I usually connect to my hackint0sh via smb to stream movies to my xbox and tv. After I updated to 10.4.9, I was unable to do so. I know have all the settings right because they did not change (IP stayed the same, same username / password) When I try to connect, the connection fails. I then notice on my mac that the service has stopped, liked it crashed or something. It wont let me restart it either. Then I notice my system sorta goes haywire. Sometimes programs don't launch. I get " -bash: fork: Resource temporarily unavailable " in terminal when I try to do even a simple ls command. When I try to mount .dmg files, it says "Too many processes". Very strange. I did some research and saw that there was a 10.4.7 fix / tool called MPIP103_10.4.7.SMB.CIFS.APF.FIX.dmg that rebuilt the service among other things. I ran the fix, however my issue remains unsolved. I am running 10.4.9 with the latest 8.9.1 universal kernel. My computer specs are in my signature. Any ideas on this? Thanks, TaterSalad
  2. I think this problem is back in 10.4.9 and the patch didnt work for me.
  3. Very Odd Problems...

    Good to know I'm not the only one. I give the disk sleep setting a shot. Are you running 10.4.9 with 8.9.1 kernel?
  4. [How To] Solutions for Ethernet Problems

    If your LAN seems to quit working after you return to your computer, try turning the sleep off.

    Hello, I've recently updated to 10.4.9 with the new 8.9.1 universal kernel. Things seemed to be running smoothly after I got all the kinks worked out.

I then notice on my mac that service has stopped, liked it crashed or something. It wont let me restart it either. Then I notice my system sorta goes haywire. Sometimes programs don't launch. I get " -bash: fork: Resource temporarily unavailable " in terminal when I try different command. When I try to mount .dmg files, it says "Too many processes" Very strange. I did some research and saw that there was a 10.4.7 fix / tool called MPIP103_10.4.7.SMB.CIFS.APF.FIX.dmg that rebuilt the service among other things. However my issue remains unsolved. LAN stops responding If I leave my computer idle for a while and return, my LAN seems to have stopped working. A simple reboot serves as a quick fix but the problem returns. I remember experiencing this problem before. It may be related to the above issue, but I doubt it because no sharing goes on while I am away. If memory serves me correctly, it fixed itself. Any ideas on this other than waiting? EDIT: I believe I have resolved the issue. The PowerManagement.kext changed my setting, so my computer was set to sleep after inactivity. However, the LAN does not wake after sleep. I think I've several people have had this issue. It's not a huge problem for me since I am rarely mobile with my laptop. Random Stuttering I experienced this in 10.4.7 and 10.4.8 and it has carried over to 10.4.9. During normal usage, my system performance randomly starts to stutter. Window animations are very sluggish, audio skips, and video hardly plays at 2 fps. This happens about once every 5 to 10 minutes. If I wait about 30 seconds to a minute, it goes away and good performance is restored. I've read something about FSB not being detected, but read it was later fixed in the newer kernels. My FSB is 533 Mhz, but according to System Profiler it is 200. Maybe my processor is old and this is just normal. What do you guys think? If you have any input on any of these issues, it is greatly appreciated. I am running 10.4.9 with the latest Universal 8.9.1 kernel. My laptop specifications are in my signature. Thank you for your time, TaterSalad77
  6. Updated to 10.4.9 and now I cant install any .dmg

    There is a problem with your System.kext. Try the official one from 10.4.9 since your running the 8.9.1 kernel right?
  7. First off, I'd just like to say great work on the guide. Before I started, I had a stable system with 10.4.8 and semthex's beta9 8.8.1 kernel. I followed the guide to upgrade and things went smoothly for the most part however I have two problems now: 1. LAN is not working. It doesn't detect my lan card. I have never had any problems with this before in in 10.4.7 or 10.4.8. I tried replacing IONetworkingFamily.kext with one from an earlier package (.8 or .7 can't remember). Either way, that did not solve my problem. 2. Video is wacked. Scrolling creates messed up displays and moving windows result in alot of visual problems. I think I had this problem before once, but I can't remember for the life of me how I fixed it. Any ideas on either of these problems? I am running 10.4.9 with the latest 8.9.1 kernel. The specs of my laptop can be view in my signature. Thanks, TaterSalad EDIT: I fixed the LAN problem. I just followed this guide. Still need to solve the video problem though. EDIT 2: As a temporary fix for problem #2, I removed GeForce.kext. I will try to get natit working with it later.
  8. Mo money, mo problems…Natit (oh so close),

    Sure you didnt change anything between the reboots?
  9. Intel Wireless driver

    I installed the v3 kext and it said ipw2200.kext could not resolve kernel dependencies or something like that. Nothing detected or anything. Didn't seem to load at all. Could be because I'm using a 2915 card. Maybe can't find the PCIMatch address? I was under the impression that the two (2200 and 2915) drivers were interchangeable. Correct me if I'm wrong. Running 10.4.8, 8.8.1 beta9 kernel Using the suggested 10.4.7 kext and framework.
  10. Random Slowness

    Hi, I am experiencing random slowness. At these periods of about 30 seconds or so, things get very sluggish. Dock moves slowly; music and videos skip. Then things burst back to normal. Its very odd. Another issue (possibly related) is when I unplug my power cable to my laptop, things get very slow and they dont fix until i plug the power back in. Are these symptoms an issue of any usual fix? Thanks, TaterSalad Also I am running 10.4.8 and 8.8.1 beta 9 sse2 kernel.
  11. Intel Wireless driver

    and for all you noobers out that who borked your system installing this and cant get it up and running again, just do the following: 1. boot in single user mode with -s flag 2. type /sbin/mount -uw / at prompt 3. then type rm -R /System/Library/Extentions/iwi2200.kext 4. reboot and you should be back to normal
  12. Intel Wireless driver

    Great to see we havent forgotten about the Intel Wireless people. I really hope this project goes far. Everyone help jalavoui as much as you can. I dont have a 2200 card to test this out on. Hopefully development will further to the people with Intel 2915ABG like myself
  13. Reboot loop

    replace your AppleSMBIOS.kext with paulicat's
  14. SSE2 beta9 Kernel Problems

    Success! I booted to desktop with the new exp6 kernel. This is what I did..... Installed Apple 10.4.8 Update with JaS dvd. Removed and replaced AppleSMBIOS.kext Rebooted, and success! However, I am experiencing some performance issues. Sometimes it flies and perfomance is great. Other times (seems random) it is real sluggish (cpu fan usually comes on).Coul AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext have anything to do with this?
  15. SSE2 beta9 Kernel Problems

    I just tried that one. It did not work.
