  1. [How To] Solutions for Ethernet Problems

    Can anyone use this Linux driver to make Atheros 2 LAN work? I went ahead and got a Hawking 10/100 PCI adapter that came with OS X drivers but didnt mention OS X drivers on the box. Lucky I guess it works fine in 10.5.1 l2_linux_v1.0.40.4.zip
  2. What about Atheros L2 Lan Driver?

    The install disk comes with a Linux driver. Can this be compiled for OS X?Can someone make something for us from this file? l2_linux_v1.0.40.4.zip
  3. x86 Xbench Results Thread

  4. Need help hacking my PC video card to Mac!

    I have a GeForce 3 that I flashed a few years back. The ti may or may not work. It may work without flashing. Probably not... I would look for a 5700 le on pricewatch or somewhere. The card is a budget version that nvidia uses a slower clock speed on. You can OC it to 5700 or 5700 ultra specs. GeForce 3 is a little slow these days.
  5. question?

    Dude, I dont think you can figure this out at this point. Just buy a real Mac.

    Just thought it would be interesting to see the xbench score for PS3. Supposedly it runs at 3.2 ghz with multiple cores. Interesting to see how it stands against the intel machines.

  9. OSX on PS3

    The article I posted says there is a boot selector in PS3 OS which lets you pick which OS or partition to boot from after installing the support for other os's. I dont really know what to do with open firmware. Also dont want to partition my drive so I was thinking of using one artitioned in my Mac and swapping it in. Maybe I will try next week, the PS3 has gone to the beach with the kids.
  10. OSX on PS3

    Check out this site. Apparently Sony has released support for "other" operating systems. Linux install instructions. OSX may be similar. http://ps3.qj.net/PS3-Linux-The-void-has-b...pg/49/aid/73144

    I was thinking about this being possible. The processor is IBM and supposedly similar to the G5. I may try with a fresh HD and the standard install disk for Tiger.
  12. To buy or not to buy a G4?

    I would not buy the G4. Its on the verge of loosing support. You would spend the same money to build an Intel Mac and have a 1066+ mhz FSB versus 100. If you buy the right equipment you can build a very fast, stable system for $500 or so. Not a Mac Mini either. The core 2 duo processors are sick. E6300's are $160-$180 and can be OCed to 2.45 Ghz or more. I really depends on your intelligence and troubleshooting ability. I have the asus P5LD2VM board. E6300 core 2 duo 800 mhz ram Sony DRU-530A DVD burner Sata drive I used the 10.4.6 install and the Paulicat method to update to 10.4.8 using the Apple update. Then used the Natit clone to get audio. Used Patchburn for sony drive. Also used Invisibles instead of Onyx to move invisible files. Then Repair disk permission after moving anything. I also recommend making two HD with System install so you can boot into an extra finder if you crash or something happens with the main drive. Also read the b0 error sticky and print it before installing anything. This will save you from wondering why a disk will not boot. Everything works just like my G4 with 10.4.8 except much faster. XBench 152. Sys Info reads correct for everything, even OC. Sound works great. Overclocked the E6300 to 2.45 gig. It seems that some have had trouble overclocking with this board. The PCIx number needs to be 118 Fixed PCI speed 33.3 mhz cpu external freq 266-350 (soon after 350 FSB speed exceeds 1500 which seems to automatically reduce multiplier to 6) set memory at or below rated speed
