  1. Awesome, thank you! One additional feature/option I'd like to see is to force it to update everything first, then run a build, which is how I currently have it setup, by simply enabling both UPDATE_FLAG=YES and BUILD_FLAG=YES. This way it's easy to build an always up to date version, but again entirely non-interactively.
  2. I understood from the usage section that the script can skip interactive menus entirely if at least a single argument is provided, but that doesn't seem to be the case. No matter what argument I provide, it always shows the menus. I'm trying to automate it to a single command, but from what I can tell the script doesn't support fully headless/non-interactive running? EDIT: Maybe just allow something like this to override build options? FORCEREBUILD="-fr" UPDATE_FLAG="NO" BUILD_FLAG="YES" ARCH="X64" buildclover EDIT 2: Found a workaround by adding the following to "var_defaults": "FORCEREBUILD",,, "UPDATE_FLAG",,,"YES" "BUILD_FLAG",,,"NO" "ARCH",,, ) This way I can simply override them in the config file, which seems to work perfectly for running in headless/non-interactive mode. Note that I also had to change the logic in the build() function to take into account if these values are set/overwritten.
  3. I've made a few observations. First of all, the hang issue I randomly get while working on my hackintosh is not the kind of "slow UI" hang, but instead, it *actually* hangs, though the mouse keeps moving. Now, initially I had 4Gb of RAM, which means that the integrated HD3000 was using 384Mb of RAM, just like OS X showed it. While I only had 4Gb of RAM, the hanging issue appeared once or twice in a month, so not that bad at all. I've now upgraded to 8Gb of RAM and the HD3000 is now using 512Mb of RAM. Now I'm getting the crash/hang every single day, atleast once, usually several times per day. Why do I get the feeling that either OS X is exhausting all that RAM and doesn't know what to do when the GPU has no more memory to use, OR, OS X doesn't properly assign/reserve that 512Mb of RAM, and after it's past using 384Mb (which worked okayish before), it'll hang. I dunno, but I'd like to get some answers, might have to contact someone like RevoGirl about this though.
  4. I've successfully done the edits so that I only have one output device: HDMI. Every now and then though (especially when I have multiple windows open and trying to watch a video), I get a crash like this: 10.1.2012 10.15.43,000 kernel: stampWait: Overflowed checking for stamp 0x18a2cf on Main ring: called from 10.1.2012 10.15.43,000 kernel: timestamp = 0x18a2cd 10.1.2012 10.15.43,000 kernel: **** Debug info for apparent hang in Main graphics engine **** 10.1.2012 10.15.43,000 kernel: ring head = 0x7f202abc, wrap count = 0x3f9 10.1.2012 10.15.43,000 kernel: ring tail = 0x00003318 ring control = 0x00003001 enabled, auto report disabled, not waiting, semaphore not waiting, length = 0x004 4KB pages 10.1.2012 10.15.43,000 kernel: timestamps = 0x18a2cd 10.1.2012 10.15.43,000 kernel: Semaphore register values: 10.1.2012 10.15.43,000 kernel: VRSYNC: (0x12044) = 0x18a2cd 10.1.2012 10.15.43,000 kernel: BRSYNC: (0x22040) = 0x0 10.1.2012 10.15.43,000 kernel: RVSYNC: (0x 2040) = 0x0 10.1.2012 10.15.43,000 kernel: BVSYNC: (0x22044) = 0x0 10.1.2012 10.15.43,000 kernel: RBSYNC: (0x 2044) = 0x0 10.1.2012 10.15.43,000 kernel: VBSYNC: (0x12040) = 0x0 10.1.2012 10.15.43,000 kernel: kIPEHR: 0xfff0ffff 10.1.2012 10.15.43,000 kernel: kINSTDONE: 0xffffffff 10.1.2012 10.15.43,000 kernel: kINSTDONE_1: 0xbfffffff Does anyone have any clues on how to remedy this? I'd also like to point out that I do in fact get random artifacts every now and then (glitchy lines here and there). I have a custom DSDT with a custom device id injected, while I've also hex-edited the kext in question manually.
  5. I've succesfully modified the kext(s) and made a custom DSDT which seem to be fully compatible with 10.7.2. I am however experiencing the "main ring stall" problem every now and then while using the system, especially if I'm using a GPU intensive app, ie. playing a game. Are there any fixes for this, or do I just have to live with this? Note that I'm using HDMI as the primary (and only) input, so while hex-editing I moved HDMI to be the first output, just so I can boot faster (without it flicking through the other outputs first).
  6. Atheros AR5005(G)

    I've been trying to get my wireless working for a couple of months now, with no success what so ever. I can't even get the card recognized (though it works just fine in Linux and Windows). According to most applications, the ID is pci168c:001a, though adding pci168c,1a to the Atheros21's Info.plist doesn't do me any good, keep getting the damn "Hal status 3" error about not being able to attach the device. What options do I have in debugging this?
  7. And here I thought I was the only one, since I only had 1600x1200 working. Though, I remember seeing something about VGA only supporting up to 1600x1200, but if you've got a DVI adapter you could do it. *shrug*
  8. Thank you so much for this installation method, working superbly well on my dual-core Atom. :-) Now, I take it that I have to have a USB drive plugged in all the time since rEFIt is installed there? No easy to way to implement that on the harddrive? (not really a big problem, since I have a spare USB drive plugged in 24/7). Secondly, I have the same problem as kevin36thi, can't get PS/2 to work. Tried a few different PS/2 kexts, but can't find one for 10.5.7.
  9. Hmm, I'm trying to get this to work, but so far I've been through kernel panics, continous restarts (looping) and now I I get stuck at the grey apple logo. Running in verbose mode didn't help either, since it seems to stop after succesfully initializing/finding the firewire. I'm running on a laptop, and the specs are something along the lines of this: CPU: Amd Turion (~1.8ghz) RAM: 1gb ddr HDD: Some ata hdd, works fine GFX: Ati Mobility Radeon X700 (PCI-E, 128mb) Also, I'm trying to install only the base package. Could that be the problem? Just noticed after reinstalling that it now gets past the firewire part and stops at "BSD root: disk0s1, major 14, minor 1. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  10. iBook Clamshell + OS X 10.4.9

    Oh boy, now I feel ashamed. How could I miss that, sheesh. At any rate, thank you, very much.
  11. 10.3 or 10.4 on 400mhz iMac?

    I've actually read that 10.3 runs way better than 10.4 on a machine like yours. I recently acquired a 366mhz iBook (Clamshell/Firewire) with around 384mb ram aswell, and I was using 10.3 for a few months, after actually taking the risk to do a clean install to 10.4 and upgrade it all the way to 10.4.9. Now, everything works like a charm. The only thing that's too slow to "enjoy" is the dashboard. But Expose, iTunes, Safari, you name it, all works. EDIT: Also, a lot of software these days seem to require 10.4, so that was one of the reasons I upgraded. I didn't really notice any major speed change when comparing 10.3 and 10.4 though.
  12. Hello there, I wasn't completely sure where to post this, so I'm hoping I picked the right thread. Anyhow, I've got OS x 10.4.9 installed on an iBook G3 Clamshell (with firewire) and it runs just fine. I'm not too familiar with Mac-stuff that goes "beyond" OS X, so I was wondering, how would you setup a scheduled boot at a certain time and at a certain date? I'd also need to shutdown at a fixed time & date. I'm also guessing this has something to do with "Open Firmware", since PC's usually have the scheduled bootup in BIOS. I simply want my poor old Mac to start in the morning and shutdown at night, to conserve power.
  13. Hello everyone, I've tried searching the forums and googled quite a bit, and although this has gotten me this far, I'm now at a deadend. Right after osx86 (10.4.4) had loaded the component "Login Window Application", it seems to crash. Not really too sure what the reason is since I'm fairly new to Mac. First I thought it was just the sound, since it was all laggy and it ended prematurely a few seconds before the GUI crashed. Here's a small video (around 1.5mb, AVI) which shows exactly what happens. Oh and by the way, I'm running osx86 on VMWare (5.x) on a laptop with AMD Turion MT 64-bit (think it's MT anyway)and an ATI Radeon X700 PCI-E GFX-Card. Thank you and I hope there's a solution! -> VIDEO <- - Didanix EDIT: I've also tried safe mode (-x), but that shows on the video aswell. Might it be a GFX Card problem? Since I did disable my virtual sound card completely.
