    Atheros AR9285 fix for Snow Leopard - Mavericks

    Glad you found it useful Jordan2Delta. Legacy is also Non-Vanilla as far as I'm aware, I assume you mean placing modified kexts in /E/E/ Though the whole .plist in /E/E/ is pretty cool. May try to apply this to my old Intel VE Lan.

    Why use legacy when you can just one line edit the original 10.6.5 kext.

    Atheros AR9285 fix for Snow Leopard - Mavericks

    The super lazy/quick way is to edit the 10.6.5 IO80211Family.kext IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AirPortAtheros21.kext/Contents/Info.plist and add this string <string>pci168c,2b</string> even quicker just download the attachment. Install to /E/E or /S/L/E rebuild mkext then reboot and enjoy IO80211Family.kext.zip
  5. I'm having the same issue as jfMac. I get an immediate kernel panic on boot. I read that having snow leopard on a drive with other partitions could be a problem so I installed it using the OSinstall.mpkg to a newly formated GUID internal HDD (with no other partitions). All my kexts permissions in /Extra/Extensions were repaired using Kext Utility v2.3.2 (snow leopard compatible) and Extensions.mkext created. DSDT.aml has the reset fix. smbios.plist and com.apple.Boot are set up. Chameleon 2 RC1 and PC EFI 10.1 are installed. Tried mach_kernel.432 and mach_kernel.test7. The processor in question is a Pentium D. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    OS X Live: Developers' Private Discussion

    Heya guys sorry for not popping in yesterday I had clinics Fail! Hagar I have to say this would make life much much easier. Good find We could do a poll to start off with and see what the most common set ups are then make loads of these prelinked mach_kernels. (probably 50+) though I'm sure it can't take too long. I'm off to have a go. Then at boot just type in the one they want and hey presto its done.

    OS X Live: Developers' Private Discussion

    Mac OS X System Startup: * Power is turned on. * Open Firmware code is executed. * Hardware information is collected and hardware is initialized. (I'll try and look up what exactly happens here. If we can modify this slightly it could be the basis of our script.) * Something (usually the OS, but also things like the Apple Hardware Test, etc.) is selected to boot. The user may be prompted to select what to boot. * Control passes to /System/Library/CoreServices/BootX, the boot loader. BootX loads the kernel and also draws the OS badges, if any. We want to cut in here before it loads the kextscache.mkext and have our hardward detection script modify this file to suit the hardware that has been detected. An other way would be to modify the OSXBundleRequired Info.plist with the hardware detection scrip. I'll be honest I have no idea which would be easiest to edit. but I think the first option would give us a faster boot time than the second. Again I may be wrong. * BootX tries to load a previously cached list of device drivers (created/updated by /usr/sbin/kextcache). Such a cache is of the type mkext and contains the info dictionaries and binary files for multiple kernel extensions. Note that if the mkext cache is corrupt or missing, BootX would look in /System/Library/Extensions for extensions that are needed in the current scenario (as determined by the value of the OSBundleRequired property in the Info.plist file of the extension's bundle. (MoC) how do you propose to get LSPCI to detect the hardware and select the required kexts at start up? I'm not sure how one would go about it myself. Anyway It's 4:44 am I better get to sleep for a few hours I have uni at 9. I'll be posting tomorrow during the day so if everyone can get some ideas together

    Good to meet you guys. Time zones won't be a problem with me as I practically don't sleep nowadays. Ok so now we're just missing one person. Yeah we can just set up a channel somewhere, shouldn't be a problem.

    Ah I was actually born in France but just study here in London. I've been to Plymouth once or twice on a night out when I was training at Devonport I cant say it was the best of nights lol I've played around with making vista, xp and a few linux distros usb bootable. I just managed to get tiger to boot live today after playing around for a while with modbins instructions. Though I still need to try Leopard since that's what the actual project is about. I've set up quite a few rigs with Boot-132 so I've got a good idea on how to use it, which will probably useful if we use Boot-132 to get the LiveDVD working. For now we'll just have to wait for the other 3 then we can get brainstorming.

    OS X Live: Developers' Private Discussion

    Hello there just thought I would say hello to all of you I'm glad I got on this project because this has the prospect of becoming something HUGE for the community if when we complete it. I'm going to assume I probably have the least knowledge out of all of you, but I do learn super quick and won't be a burden that I promise. I've just been reading through the 10.4.1/4/5 Live and Install DVD post and my god modbin has done a lot. I'm going to read some more and digest all he's said. Anyway hope to talk to all the team soon.
  12. Heyo I've been on Insanely for a while but I must confess I haven't been the most active of users (if active at all) I've been tinkering with OSx86 for about 3-4 years now since the early days and have built up a fairly large knowledge base. Though obviously it's probably nothing compared to some of the members here. I've played around with bootable disks of Linux, Windows and the OS X LiveDVD (though at the time I mega failed with the OS X LiveDVD) I also have a fair knowledge of the workings of the OS X system. In the theory we could like Rammjet suggested use the Boot-132 method. A pretty little GUI could be made with input for the different kexts and kernel) Sounds fairly easy though I can imagine it won't be a piece of cake. Anyway if you would consider me for this I'd be grateful. It's about time I start helping (or attempt to help)

    Knowing when FC Leopard is downloadable: How?

    Stupid {censored} is wrong. Getting us all excited. Mac.OS.X.Leopard.Build.9A466.WWDC07.Preview-BETAOSX [sEARCH] No matches for Mac.OS.X.Leopard.Build.9A466.WWDC07.Preview-BETAOSX !pre *WWDC* [PRED] [APPLE.MAC.OSX.LEOPARD.V10.5.SERVER.WWDC.PREVIEW-BETAOSX] released 296d 45m 4s ago [2006-08-23] !pre *BETAOSX [PRED] [APPLE.MAC.OSX.LEOPARD.V10.5.SERVER.WWDC.PREVIEW-BETAOSX] released 296d 53m 43s ago [2006-08-23] The Group BETAOSX Haven't released this so guess we've got even longer to wait.

    When is Leopard Going to Leak?

    Yeah it does but the fncker got banned Meh I think the developers are paranoid about this whole watermarking of the DVD's, tbh I'd be the same.

    He isn't downloading it as it was a fake torrent.
