  1. firewire error message after installation

    hi again, i was wrong, it is not the DS3L, but the DS3R that i have. i have installed the files for DS3L, that is the same, according to kakewalk instructions. So what i did, i have installed a PCI express Firewire card, and now in system info, i see the firewire soundcard that i have. the one onboard is not yet visible... when i plug the soundcard to this onboard port the signal arrive to the card, but the led of the firewire connection is off. i am wondering if this is not something to do with the DSDT file. that maybe the firewire port onboard is not listed there, or it is not picking up the IRD number from the bios. But where should i start?
  2. Hi, i have installed kakewalk and SL retail on the motherboard P45 DS3L Gigabyte, but after installation the firewire port sayw "unable to list firewire device"... and the firewire onboard is the reason i choose this motherboard... please... where can i start investigations?

    Hi there! happy to be here to tell my positive installation of leohazard version of snow leo OSX 10.6.3. here my 'about this mac': Hardware Overview: Model Name: Mac Pro Model Identifier: MacPro4,1 Processor Name: Quad-Core Intel Xeon Processor Speed: 2,33 GHz Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 4 L2 Cache: 4 MB Memory: 4 GB Bus Speed: 1,33 GHz Memory Slots: ECC: Disabled Bank0/1/DIMM1: Size: 2 GB Type: DDR3 Speed: 800 Status: OK Manufacturer: OCZ Part Number: TR3X661600C9 Serial Number: 000123-01234567-0 Bank2/3/DIMM2: Size: 2 GB Type: DDR3 Speed: 800 Status: OK Manufacturer: Technology Part Number: TR3X661600C9 Serial Number: EMPTY 1) Ethernet onboard. It is a chipset Realtek RTL8201CP. i have tried different kext from kext dot com, but all with same results. the network was creating a new 'connection' in the "system preference", and i had to activate it in order to get the IP address. then after a very short time, sometime minutes, was dropping internet connection, and the bitrate lever from utorrent was going slowly to 0... I gave up, and tried a spare USB dongle 2) F5D8053 N Wireless USB Adapter.

Well.... the latest driver have support for various adapter, and included there is the Belkin F5D8053. Indeed... as i install the driver, i connect the USB and the wireless control panel opens in a second... all wireless signals founded. I was expected to do the procedure described here, but when i open the file with TextWrangler i see that there are dozens of model supported Click on mine, and that's it... the first day the connection dropped after a couple of hours, but today still non problem... sometime it goes down, almost to 0, but it goes up again. It does not disturb at all. And btw.... installation and configuration have been far easier than the Windows System... 3) SOUND it works with the voodoo kext, the latest from the kext site. 4) FIREWIRE i have a PCI card installed with 2 firewire port. It is operational and i was able to install alesis firewire I0 I4 hardware and driver for snow leopard. It is active, and i can see it in the midi and sound config. As a real mac... tomorrow i'll try to install some software and gears. Now i am happy that all works like this... 5) nVIDIA Quadro FX 1800. working as a charm with "easy GFX" installer.
