  1. Mount ext3 partitions in OS X?

    Sounds like if you were triying to use a PPC kext on an Intel System. Are you sure is the universal version of ext2fs the one you're using? For what I know you need to disable Journaling in the ext2/3 volume before triying to use it on OS X to avoid data corruption.
  2. mac os x leopard lie

    No that I'm aware of. The only thing you can do is search for a way to stop processes you don't want to use, like Spotlight, Time Machine, Dashboard, etc to get some memory and processor cycles back. Deactivating Font Antialiasing and even using less colors/resolution helps, I know 'caue I've been using 10.4 on a PowerMac G3 300MHZ for many years.
  3. Unzip the file in a pendrive or an iPod, in my case I've to boot from the DVD with the pendrive plugged in or otherwise it wont mount. Then you just open the console an CD /Volumes/NAME_OF_YOUR_PENDRIVE/ Make sure your drive is unmounted before you leave Disk Utility as stated in the first post. Sorry if you don't understand something, I'm trying to help but my english is bad.
  4. hfs+ partition error

    You made a fat32 parttion named leopard? And what did you installed in it? And how? Are you using EFI? If so, please repeat the last step of the EFI installation.
  5. Have you try to repair permissions on that disk with the System Install DVD? Can you try login with a diferent user? Find the file /private/var/db/.AppleSetupDone, deleted it and the the Setup Assistant will ask you to create a new user. If that works then the problem is with your user account, maybe trashing some preferences will help. Thinking it again, it can be a problem with your files owner and group id. You can boot in single user mode and find if you have full permissions to the files and folders in your home directory.
  6. No, should I try to fix this in a parted live CD or install rEFIt? I've read somewhere about parted not being aware of flags set by EFI in GUID disk. Thanks EDIT: Well, I used gptsync from an Ubuntu LiveCD and now thing are most messed up than before. The machine tries to boot into windows, shows an error and can only get to OS X if the installation DVD is on the drive. Gonna try booting from the WinXP cd, fix mbr, redo the last step of the EFI installation and see what happens. EDIT2: changing the flags with gparted with or without doing a gtpsync after didn't work. Not valid system disk or Windows System errors where all I get. Finally I did this steps Boot from Leo4All DVD, completely reinstalled EFI, gptsync. Leopard boots ok, EFI partition is hidden (appears as Microsft Reserved in Disk Utility) NTFS partition wouldn't mount, disk utility shows it as Microsoft Reserved. If i try to get into windows it starts to boot but I get a BSOD with the message UNMMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME I think the types of the partitions is wrong but don't know how to change them in GUID, maybe fdisk will do the trick? This is the output I get when using "showpart" tool: Current GPT partition table: # Start LBA End LBA Type 1 40 409639 MS Reserved 2 409640 419577375 Mac OS X HFS+ 3 419839520 466901319 EFI System (FAT) 4 467163464 488134983 Mac OS X HFS+ Current MBR partition table: # A Start LBA End LBA Type 1 1 39 ee EFI Protective 2 * 40 409639 0b FAT32 (CHS) 3 409640 419577375 af Mac OS X HFS+ 4 419839520 466901319 ef EFI System (FAT) MBR contents: Boot Code: Unknown, but bootable Partition at LBA 40: Boot Code: None (Non-system disk message) File System: FAT32 Listed in GPT as partition 1, type MS Reserved Listed in MBR as partition 2, type 0b FAT32 (CHS), active Partition at LBA 409640: Boot Code: Unknown, but bootable File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in GPT as partition 2, type Mac OS X HFS+ Listed in MBR as partition 3, type af Mac OS X HFS+ Partition at LBA 419839520: Boot Code: Windows NTLDR File System: NTFS Listed in GPT as partition 3, type EFI System (FAT) Listed in MBR as partition 4, type ef EFI System (FAT) Partition at LBA 467163464: Boot Code: None File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in GPT as partition 4, type Mac OS X HFS+
  7. I can confirm this method to work on my setup, and I´m dual booting Leopard and Windows XP Professional SP2 32 bits without problems. The only thing is after installing WinXP and redoing the last step in the guide (when you copy the boot0) there is now an extra partition named EFI (200Mb, FAT) showing in bot Leopard and XP. I also have and extra partition after the Windows one which is a backup of my Leopard install done with Disk Utility, but is only 7.2Gb in size so I can copy it to a dual layer disk and erase it. Anyone knows how to set EFI flags to hide the EFI partition?
  8. Para hacer diseños de teclado personalizados y compatibles con Leopard hay que usar una aplicacion gratuita llamada Ukelele. Los archivos generados tienen extension .keylayout y son archivos .xml con las definiciones de cada tecla y los estados (shift, option, etc). Les dejo uno de ejemplo winlatinamerican.keylayout.zip

  10. Geforce 8400GS 256MB DVi Error

    Same problem here, MSI 8400GX 250Mb PCI-E. VGA is fine at 1280*1024, but DVI only gimme a picture for a few seconds if I hot plug it, and totally black when I reboot. Maybe we can try something like this: Thats seem to work for 8400GS 512Mb.
  11. TimeMachine fails backup

    This was posted in page three of this topic I believe. I was getting a lot of Error: 35 messages in system log and that fixed for me. Strangely, my Realtek Ethernet card has always worked withouth problem and is listed as ´eth0´. I´ve not tried Time Machine yet, but I guess there would be no problems now.
  12. G33 GMA 3x00 onboard video - Does it work ?

    It's a no no. Even if you edit the GMA950 kext with the 3100 Device ID, etc it still says NO KEXT LOADED. CoverFlow, QuickLook, etc works fine but the CPU usage goes up even when you use Exposé. Toast 9 an VMWare refuses to run and my educated guess is that it has something to do with the absence of accelerated graphics. Gonna check what drivers are they using in Ubuntu/Debian for this onboard video, maybe there are some source codes availables, but I don't think they will be usefull in OS X. Also I've got to check what happens if I set the video mode in the startup options to 1280x1024, at least thing won't look so ugly on my 17" Sony. EDIT "Graphics Mode"="1280x1024x32" in boot option will give you that resolution but screen efects shows some artifacts.
  13. G33 GMA 3x00 onboard video - Does it work ?

    Installed KalyWay 10.5.2 in an Intel mobo DG31PR with GMA3100 graphics, the 3100 packaga in the instaler was selected. Still not working. Gonna try adding the device ID of the 3100 in the 950 kext if that's possible to see what happens.
