  1. Kernel panic after 10.10.2 update, please help

    I tried upgrading to 10.10.2 and am also panicking at launchd. To even get there, I have to boot safe mode (-x), no caches or injected kexts, nv_disable=1 and nvda_drv=0, and disabling Clover ALC (though I'm not sure if it's fully disabled). If I don't do all these things, I get nothing - booting into verbose mode just gets stuck at the very first loading dot. This also happens if i try booting from a clean 10.10.2 install USB, so the upgrade went fine, I think. My 10.10.1 setup is: Clover 3142 Clover ALC Boot flags: kext-dev-mode=1 nvda_drv=1 npci=0x2000 Patched DSDT and SSDT NVIDIA Web Drivers No foreign kexts in /S/L/E/ EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.10: AppleIntelE1000e 2.1.7 FakeSMC 4.3.4 NullCPUPowerManagement realtekALC 1.0-90toledaALC VoodooTSCSync EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI: EmuVariableUefi-64.efi FSInject-64.efi HFSPlus.efi OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi Hardware is in signature. Any hints?

    I've never edited a DSDT before, so I was nervous, but this change made the audio work perfectly. Thanks!
  3. Mavericks Realtek ALC AppleHDA Audio

    Description of audio problem I can inject my ALC898 into AppleHDA.kext using Toleda's script, but when I tried to migrate to using CloverALC, it reports that it's not supported, as quoted below. Audio ID: 898 is not supported, continue (y/n):After continuing and rebooting, no audio devices are found. OS X version/motherboard model/BIOS version/processor/graphics OS X 10.9.5 Asus P9X79 WS BIOS 3101 Intel Core i7-3930K EVGA GeForce GTX 760 4 GB Procedure/Guide Used Downloading audio_CloverALC-master to ~/Downloads/, unzipping audio_cloverALC-90_v2.command, and running it. Trying to use audio layout 1, as with toleda's previous injection method. No HDMI audio needed. Copy of IOReg See attachment.

    I'm trying to switch to using CloverALC instead of injecting my audio ID directly. Realtek ALC898 is listed as supported in toleda's repo, but when I run the script: No audio. Am I doing something wrong?
  5. After much rebooting and experimentation, here is what I've figured out using a clean 10.9.3 install. DisplayPort in and of itself isn't the problem. I can turn off DP 1.2 and get a signal on the UP2414Q, and I can also use DisplayPort with my U2711 (I normally use DVI). When DP 1.2 is off, I can use both monitors side-by-side in 10.9.3 (with the UP2414Q running at 30Hz). This is probably what I'll end up doing for the time being. Refresh rate options are not presented for the UP2414Q in 10.9.3 and DP 1.2, and the only available option when using DP 1.1a is 30Hz, even under lower resolutions. The latter is presumably because all the resolutions listed in the Display Preferences are virtual and the actual signal going to the monitor is always native resolution. Display Maestro can set higher refresh rates under DP 1.1a as it's not dealing with virtual resolutions, but no refresh rate options are presented under DP 1.2. Swapping a full-size DisplayPort cable to a mini DisplayPort cable doesn't help. Changing the SMBIOS to MacBookPro11,2 (2013 Retina MBP) doesn't help. Leaving my SMBIOS on MacPro6,1 (2013 Mac Pro) doesn't help. This brings me to the conclusion that something in either the DisplayPort 1.2 communication or the MST support is broken with my specific system. Perhaps the EDID is not being sent correctly over DP 1.2. Maybe other 4K monitors work, though I wouldn't use a different one unless it had a similar pixel density. I'll give this another go when the next OS X release hits.
  6. Sadly, doesn't work for me in 10.9.3. I tried messing with EDIDs but I'm inept with SwitchResX. However, it did show me that the machine is detecting the refresh rate for 59.997 Hz. Changing it to 60 Hz predictably borked the video on both displays. Right now I'm going to reboot and try different combinations of cables. Not optimistic at this point!
  7. I'm also having problems once more with 10.9.3 final and the UP2414Q. My U2711 works fine over DVI, but I can't get a signal to appear on the UP2414Q. My experience mirror's boli's: I can see that the display is connected in the Displays Preferences, and I can pick other resolutions (at my peril), but I can't adjust the refresh rate, nor can I see what refresh rate it's trying to send to the display. It's acting like a built-in display from a MacBook Pro or iMac in that respect; they don't expose refresh rate options either. I just had an idea as I was typing this post, which I'm going to try this weekend. I need to see if DisplayPort itself is the problem, by connecting my U2711 via DP. I'm also going to see if there are hacks to expose refresh rate options on built-in displays on a legit Mac, to see if that same kind of hack works on this machine.
  8. I'm having nothing but problems in the latest seeds. Beta 7 (13D43) only runs my 2560x1440 display, and when I change the display settings, both displays blank out. Beta 6 was the opposite: It would only drive the 4K display. Can't win!
  9. I did try the NVIDIA web drivers when I was trying to get 60Hz working initially, but I'm 95% sure I wiped all traces of them from my system. I'm using Chameleon v2.2svn r2377 right now. Maybe you'll find my plist configs useful. One problem I ran into with beta 2 was that my card would only drive my 4K monitor, and not my 27" DVI display. Gonna test on beta 3 to see if I run into the same problems as you guys. UPDATE: Tried 10.9.3 beta 3 and I'm having no luck getting my second monitor working, though the 4K display is still working fine. Also tried deleting /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist to no avail. UPDATE 2: Just tried deleting all the DisplayVendorID entries in /System/Library/Displays/Overrides, also to no avail. I'm stumped. Back to 10.9.2 for now.
  10. This is the exact card I'm using on my hack. I don't have any graphics enablers or hacks needed to make my card work. It's also important to make sure that: When booting into Windows, the latest drivers for your card will run your 4K display at 60Hz. Your monitor is set up to receive a DisplayPort 1.2 signal. You are using a DisplayPort 1.2 cable. This is the one I use. I don't know if my motherboard has anything to do with 4K MST output, but it's certainly possible. Not sure about the 13". It has Thunderbolt 2 (and therefore DisplayPort 1.2), but I don't know if the Iris graphics will drive 4K at 60Hz. You might want to try it in Windows. Your iMac, though, can't run 4K at 60Hz as it doesn't have TB2.
  11. Just installed 10.9.3 beta 2 and it's even better. Not only am I seeing 60Hz refresh rate with MST, but the pixels coming off of the card are keeping up with it now. Getting nice smooth window dragging and cursor movement, and it's just as smooth as on my non-4K display! This is excellent!
  12. I had to go into the monitor's settings and choose Menu > Display Settings > DisplayPort 1.2. It's not enabled by default. Other than that, just make sure that you have a DisplayPort 1.2 cable and a DP 1.2 port available on your GTX. Also note that OS X supports my card without any hacks – YMMV. I haven't tried yet – I only booted into 10.9.3 briefly. I might give it another go today. The framerate problems were pretty much systemwide though, and they didn't occur on my 2560x1440 display. Even moving the cursor and dragging windows around on my 4K display was not smooth like on my other display. I definitely know that it's refreshing at 60Hz though.
  13. I can confirm this with 10.9.3 beta 1 on my system (though, in my case, the upscale resolution is just a list of pixel dimensions). Not sure if the drivers still need some optimization though – while I can see that it's refreshing the display at 60Hz, it looks like my card might not be able to render at that framerate in OS X right now. Running it at native resolution, @2x scaling. For example, the highest framerate I can get on acko.net (a WebGL site) on that monitor is 36 FPS. That said, there could be some optimizations on their way still. Windows handles 4K pretty well on this machine.
  14. The high-end 15" 2013 Retina MacBook Pro ships with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M, and it has Thunderbolt 2 (and therefore DisplayPort 1.2). So it meets the requirements. There's a big thread about this on Apple's discussion forums, and these MacBook Pro owners don't have MST support in their drivers either. However, since NVIDIA provides drivers for Windows directly, they (and I) report success running 4K at 60Hz with MST in Windows. The question is whether Apple will update the drivers with MST support for these systems, or leave them in the cold and wait for the next hardware revision (which I would predict is just as likely). In either case, for Hackintosh users, it's gonna happen. Just a question of when.
  15. Just thought I'd post a quick update: I just installed the 10.9.2 release (13C64) and I'm still missing MST drivers. Capped at 30Hz for now. Here's hoping 10.9.3 will deliver, because this monitor is amazing otherwise.
