  1. Just wanted to let you know that installation was a breeze on ASRock H55M Pro. The only thing that didn't work was sound, but VoodooHDA 2.7.4 fixed that as well. The only thing that's bothering me now is that I can only use one display. I'm using a Geforce GTS 250 with two displays attached (one VGA and one DVI->VGA). Could anyone tell me how to enable the second display?
  2. Sound on ASRock H55M Pro

    I've managed to fix it by installing VoodooHDA 2.7.4 from http://www.osx86.net/view/2746-voodoohda_2.7.4_pkg_installer.html. This release isn't on the official VoodooHDA site, so I missed it.
  3. Hi there, I've managed to install Mountain Lion on my ASRock H55M Pro, a pretty smooth experience using this guide. One thing that doesn't work as smoothly is sound. I've installed VoodooHDA and it shows up two output devices (analog and HDMI) and one input. Ideally, I'd like to get sound over the optical out interface, which seems to happen when I select HDMI. Unfortunately, the sound is very distorted. Listening closely, I can hear some of the actual sound through the noise, so it's doing something at least a little bit right. I've tried setting the Format via the Audio MIDI Setup, and while it makes some difference, the result is always heavily distorted. A Google search revealed a bunch of things, like setting some parameters in the VoodooHDA.kext's Info.plist, but everything I've tried thus far did not improve the situation. Nor made it worse, for that matter. If anyone could give me some pointers, I'd be happy to try them.
  4. Realtek 8168/8111 solution

    So DaemonES, I take it you don't know why my NIC stops working after a while? Please just say so (it won't hurt you, and it won't slim your chances of ever being an Apple employee!), because then I can stop refreshing this thread every once in a while It's kinda strange, because I bought this specific mainboard as it seems to be pretty popular around here, and for most people it works without problems. Just not for me Thanks anyway!

    Geez, I wish I knew. Can't find any mention of AHCI in my bios. Where do I check this? Oh but I am using SATA II. Maybe AHCI implies SATA ?
  6. Realtek 8168/8111 solution

    Hi, I installed the latest driver, and although at first glance is seems to work great, it gets unstable after a few minutes of usage. After a few minutes of usage, the connection dies. I can't ping anything anymore, safari won't load pages, etc. Unloading the kext and then loading it again gives me the ability to ping, but as soon as I try to load a webpage, the network died again. No more ping replies, just nothing. I've compiled the driver myself, with Debug configuration. Dmesg shows a lot of activity, even when the connection dies. In the system.log I can see that at a certain time (probably when the connection died) it only receives packets with packet len of '60'. Before that, it received packet lengths of arbitrary sizes. I really have no idea what could be causing this. If you want, I can send you attach a copy of my system.log. My hardware is a ConRoe945G-DVI running JaS 10.4.8 DVD.
  7. I was missing agpgart yes, so I installed it! The output of kextstat shows: 29 0 0x31ea7000 0x6000 0x5000 com.joblo10.driver.AGPGart (2.2.0) <16 11> ... 67 0 0x38484000 0x1ab000 0x1aa000 com.apple.nvidia.nv40hal (4.4.0) <52 16 11> ... 71 0 0x320cc000 0x49000 0x48000 com.apple.GeForce (4.4.0) <52 51 50 16 11 5 4 3 2> ... 74 0 0x31d24000 0x4000 0x3000 com.dmweb.Natit (1.0.0d1) <16 11> 75 0 0x31e8d000 0x5000 0x4000 com.free.driver.Titan (1.0.0d1) <16 11> So it seems that AGPGart is loaded now, but the performance didn't change, and system profilers shows this: How can I check if AGPGart is really working? Maybe it doesn't support my Intel chipset?
  8. Hi guys, Yesterday evening I finally managed to install OSx86 on a Compaq Workstation that was gathering dust. I decided I could better make some use of this 'nice' piece of hardware. It works mostly great. Here are the specs: Compaq Evo W6000 - 1x Intel Xeon 1.7GHz w/ SSE2. - 1.5GB ECC RAM - Geforce FX 5200 128MB AGP - JaS.10.4.8.AMD.Intel.SSE2.SSE3 with Nitat driver from DVD But there's a problem. Compared to my macbook, it's really really slow. It's slow when resizing windows, it's even lagging horribly when scrolling in TextEdit. Activity monitor however never shows CPU activity near 100%. When resizing it tops at 70% CPU, and when scrolling it tops at 40% CPU. So the CPU is probably not the bottleneck. Even the water effect in dashboard is very slow (low FPS). I'm inclined to blame the GFX card, since it's very low end. But maybe it's the AGP bus that's hammering things? I know that the fx5200 card is pretty popular in this community, so I was wondering if I'm the only one experiencing this. If the changes are likely that the fx5200 is indeed to blame for the slow UI, then I'm willing to buy something faster (the 7600's aren't that expensive anymore). Oh just for the record, System Profiles shows that QE and CI are both supported. Cheers!
