  2. ALC889a audio 'pops' at sound event beginnings -

    I'm with you on this one. I have a laptop with Conexant AC-Link AC97 audio that does the same thing. My laptop has the media keys at the top and after a few minutes of the sound card being idle the mute button lights up. Every time it makes a short sound it pops first. Music and videos play fine though. Strange....
  3. There is development on this, in fact there is a driver and guide over here I am using an old dv1000 with gma915 and it works great! only downside is that you get some minor artifacts when typing in some input boxes (itunes search, folder/file renaming) but nothing major. Definitely better than being stuck with no QE/CI. Good Luck!
  4. I tried using the Kalyway's installer that I found on the little green monster but had no luck. And yes I followed the directions. Not sure if I want to go through restoring my system for a third time so I'll wait for more confirmations. How does it work with ATI cards? Also, will I have to redo my efi strings?
  5. Obama's Speech on Race

    When I saw Wright's speeches for the first time on TV the first thing that popped into my head was Adolf Hitler. Hitler gave strikingly similar messages delivered with the same passion and using equally moving rhetoric. I fancy myself a WWII buff and have read and listened to many of Hitler's speeches and writings. Oddly enough if you "remove the inflammatory, racially charged, and outrageously politically incorrect verbiage" from his speeches it is hard to disagree with him because "they convey messages of hope and self-respect" as well. They also pointed fingers at somebody like Wright does. When you convey those messages in such a way the people in the audience become hateful to those whom the finger is pointed (they are obviously not the problem, right?). Rhetoric like Wright's does nothing but worsen the racial divide and it is done deliberately. How long are people like Wright going to blame people like me, honest hard-working people, instead of taking responsibility for themselves and making something of themselves? Nobody is holding them back, in fact we are in the "era of overcompensation" for the racial problems of years past. Things like affirmative action are a testament to that. I'd like to quote Lionel Chetwynd, writer/director of"Hanoi Hilton" and other films, in a letter he wrote to Barack Obama recently: You say you are devoted to Reverend Wright because he brought you to Christ. I can only imagine how powerful a relationship that forges. But, my imperfect understanding of the Christian Faith tells me you can do him an equally magnificent service: You can help bring him back to Christ. Show him redemption and salvation lie not in the satisfaction of doing little dances in a pulpit while you slander good and decent people. Teach him that great leadership and Christian love abjures the very filth – and I pick that word deliberately – that he spews on an apparently regular basis. After all, Senator, you know our government did not invent the HIV virus to kill African-Americans. You know, Senator, this is not the United States of KKK America. You know the truth of 9/11. At least you should. Both you and Michelle have benefited mightily from the new spirit that has come to America in the last two generations. I thought you were part of that. I thought you were post-racial. But in your silence, in your justifications, in your facile instruction to contextualize, you seem just a more presentable version of those dreary self-promoters, Sharpton, Jackson, Bakewell and the rest. Surely this is not you. Please, Senator, be brave. Lead. From a position of honesty where context is our daily reality, not drawn from bitter memories, no matter how justified they once might have been. Deny Jeremiah Wright your comfort of “context”. Be Presidential. To all Americans. I am a religious person but I generally steer clear of mainstream religion due to people like Wright. As far as my faith goes I am a firm believer that politics have no place in the pulpit, left or right. When I go to church on Sunday (which is rare because of this) I want to connect better with God, not some political candidate or philosopher. P.S. "The media should be held to a standard, by law to disregard ratings and to only tell the news, facts plain and simple, without interpretation, etc." The first amendment protects against this!
  6. well turning radio off in the wifi utility works for shutdown, thanks for that! in my quest to figure out why it wouldn't shut down i reverted to configuring sata as ide in the bios as opposed to ahci. the system started half the time with sata as ide. however i got a kernel panic if i tried to shut down after waking from sleep. this is strange. any reason for that?
  7. Obama's Speech on Race

    I tend to read a good bit of blogs and editorials online. As such i think these two paragraphs written by two different people pretty much sum up my take. "My first blush reactions were that (1) he began by confusing the Declaration and the Constitution; (2) his "perfect union" is much less modest than that of the Founders, which isn’t surprising, of course; (3) for those who had read or heard lots of his speeches, there was quite a bit of recycling, with not much genuinely new; (4) he understands everyone’s anger, but only seems to blame conservative politicians and talk radio hosts for exploiting it; (5) the policy proposals are familiar, but he wants those who object to them to seem somehow crabbed and backward-looking; (6) the speech was quite self-referential in a way I found off-putting; and (7) his limited praise for conservative "Cosbyism" is undercut by the ways in which he continues to wish to apportion lots of blame for the plight of poor blacks on things like education (which has been massively funded by all levels of government since the 60s and which has been controlled in urban school districts by leaders elected by African-American majorities for almost that long)." "...Obama places the blame for everyone’s anger (white and black) right on the doorstep of conservatives. This seems to be a cynical application of his principles—and yet, I detected no sense of guile in his remarks. They seem heartfelt—and I’m not sure which is worse. He admits no possibility, for example, of a black conservative. Such a man must, in his universe, suffer from a false sense of consciousness. Are we all just a product of our respective experiences? He seems to want to transcend them, but he also embraces them… all of them… as one embraces an embarrassing relative (or preacher friend). In understanding the anger that comes from all of those respective experiences, must we also excuse it? Can we move beyond the anger or must we marinate in it and come out with a flavor—similar to Rev. Wright’s—and then demand that people "understand" where we’re coming from? Is Obama the only man running qualified to be President because of his mixed-race background? He’s the only guy who can understand and be above all that anger? Where is the path out for the rest of us? He seems to sing a siren song… only Obama can absolve us from our guilt. In that sense, he descends from his higher aspirations in the beginning of the speech to a place that is far more ordinary and pedestrian and—oddly—racist."
  8. anybody have any luck with the airport update that came out this week? i sure didn't...
  9. I finally got sleep working. The problem was that I had hard drives attached to the jmicron IDE controller on my mobo. My graphics card uses an efi string. Thanks again jccool for your work!
  10. it installed and worked fine but the computer would not shut down properly so i had to restore. no noticeable performance increases though.
  11. Mac OS X 10.4.XX 32bit?

    it should be fine. the emulated system is not dependent on the base system.
  12. Mac OS X 10.4.XX 32bit?

    you need to make sure to set the operating system type to be a 64-bit freebsd system when you create the VM
  13. [HowTo] Intel GMA 900 (for 915GM and 910)

    as of right now your best bet is to go back to 10.4 and use diabolik's patcher
  14. admin rights in disk terminal?

    "sudo -s" i believe (sans quotation marks of course)
  15. EFI strings

    @ CicoMico: I won't post my com.apple.boot.plist file, I'm not sure that is legal to do here. Also, mine contains a big string for Marvell Yukon, ATI x1950xt and ALC882. However, I can post the plist I created to make a hex string to insert into the com.apple.boot.plist. It is attached to this post. @SticMAN: I know there are a lot over there, but it is not very easy to find anything. I am hoping this will be an organized thread to find anything you need.
