  1. Hmm I just added a 2nd monitor to my gforce 9800 and turned them both off to clean them.. and the primary is stuck on this static display..... although thankfully I had a browser on my 2nd display to at least search & post this.... I'll power down both displays and take a look...
  2. How I got my ALC888 working in 10.9 Without DSDT

    Let me just add, that after 'fixing' my boot strings to force the x86_64 kernel, sound is still working, and working GREAT! From Office, iTunes, Sims, Half-Life2 to even some old PPC stuff like ONI.
  3. How I got my ALC888 working in 10.9 Without DSDT

    OMG Thank you very much! I can confirm that this work on 10.6.4 on my HP m9360f with some ALC888S card built into the mother board... I used the Kext Helper b7 to install it, and it's working GREAT (Once I setup the output's correctly). I'm currently using the 32bit kernel, but hell sound is kind of nice to have, I'll have to try to force it on the x86_64 to see what it does. Thanks again!
  4. Rhapsody in VMware

    Yes, but it is EXTREMELY SLOW... I dont know why, but it behaves like the TPMC module is there... But it does work (well I havent verified it on a SSE host). Also the mouse on DR2 is extremly erradic. Its hardly usable.
  5. Rhapsody in VMware

    Im installing rhapsody dr2 in vmware player right now... Sounds to me that you didnt set it up for all IDE, or forgot to load the EIDE drivers (I go for the PIIX4 looking one.... I forget the exact term). I did install Nextstep so im realativly sure it'll run.
  6. SDL doom!

    Quake 1 crashes on me.. I'll try to build Quake 2...
  7. SDL doom!

    Ok first buld & install SDL ( I have a pervious topic on that) now download sdl doom http://www.libsdl.org/projects/doom/ has a copy of sdldoom-1.10 I had to configure with the following flags, as OSX failes the SDL test (dont know why, and I didnt feel like researching) ./configure --disable-sdltest Ok now we are off! there are 2 files that will need a #define linux Attached to them... They are: w_wad.c for struper i_net.c for basic internet includes... I put them just before the #ifdef(linux... part... Anyways It runs, and it has sound! its a super cheezy port (ie no effort whatsoever on my part) but hey I just aced level 1!
  8. Compiling SDL

    Ok, first I used the SDL from CVS... Also you have to tell the system to use the 3.3 compiler, as the default 4.0 is not supported by SDL (the linker freaks) Here is the steps I used cvs -d :pserver:guest@libsdl.org:/home/sdlweb/libsdl.org/cvs login # Hit <return> when prompted for a password cvs -z3 -d :pserver:guest@libsdl.org:/home/sdlweb/libsdl.org/cvs checkout SDL12 sudo gcc_select 3.3 cd SDL12; ./autogen.sh; ./configure CC=gcc-3.3; make; make install cd test ./autogen.sh ;./configure CC=gcc-3.3;make if it fails verify that the Makefile has a line like this: OBJCFLAGS = -g -O2 -fno-common ........ the -fno-common is the important bit... The test programs ran including the opengl, and the sound.

    Unplug your ethernet, then try to boot it up.. login and wait about a minute, then plug the ethernet back in.. Or at least thats what mine did..
  10. Install of QuickTime 7.0 breaks things

    I would probably re-image & dont install quicktime 7, and enjoy the quicktime 7 thats in the base image... QuickTime controls too much in OSX its an integral component...
  11. I-tunes Cpu Usage

    My amd64 freaks when trying to shut down... also if the ethernet is plugged in at boot it will lock at the login screen. I installed it on a dell 2300 at work, and replaced the video card, and it boots & shutsdown perfectly.... Maybe its an AMD thing?
  12. SSE3 Patch and System Privilages

    I dont know why you would throw out the kernel, but I would try re-applying the 0.4 patches, and have the script install a patched kernel... You may be makeing this too dificult for yourself.. Unless you have a SSE3 cpu.
  13. Success, Yes, But Usable Os X On X86?

    Im on an AMD 64 3000+ with 768MB of ram, and the only "issue" I have when booting is that most of the time it locks at the login screen if the ethernet is plugged in. Im not quite sure why its doing that... Anyways once its booted & logged in its quite usable, Microsoft Office vX runs great, It would be nice if VirtualPC would run, however on the other hand I can see why it wont. Compatibility with the ppc apps is surprisingly good, I moved all my shell stuff from my mini onto the amd and the vast majority works, the only program that was too slow to be usefull was a vax emulator, which I just rebiult as a native app. The only 'critical' thing missing from deadmoo is all the dev tools, but as a user workstation its great. Oh the other thing is that iTunes is a ppc app, and when I rip CD's I get 2x-4x ripping speed, where my mini gets 14-20x.. So for cpu intensive tasks there you can see the difference in rosetta. Most applications though are not cpu intensive, Esp if they are waiting around for the user input data (ie a web browser) Now if there was a way to run Outlook 2001, Id be happy, but for now Im stuck with either terminal services, or outlook express. Id give this 8/10. For an alpha release this is freaking awsome!
  14. SSE3 Patch and System Privilages

    I think its bovinity .. I could be wrong. To reset the root password use the -s flag in the boot loader, follow the steps it tells you, then issue passwd root and pick a password. type in reboot & try to run your patches as root.
  15. Ok this isnt for the timid First a list of what you'll need 1) a server you can reach from MacOSX .. windows, apple, nfs your choice. 2) a darwin cd 3) the deadmoo image 4) the appropriate SSE patches 5) a computer thats on the HCL 6) A small 7 gig + disk for temp booting 7) about 2+ hours. Ok first start decompressing the .img on a server that you can reach from osx. Now DD the img onto the small disk. (for this I use a bootable DVD with openbsd 3.7 (floppy37.fs) as the bootable image source. Its quicker and easier than all this "live cd" nonsense) Ok now with the dd'd small disk done, reboot into single user mode boot off the disk in single user mode (-s) reset the root password remove the AppleTPMACPI.kext reboot into single user mode, and apply the sse2 patches. reboot again into "normal" osx. If you need to remove video drivers, go ahead now, Ok now if that small disk is working, now its time to prep the 'big' disk. shut down your computer, remove the small disk (so we dont format it by accident) , and place the big one as the primary disk in your boot chain, then boot off of the darwin cd. Darwin doesnt have that many options, go ahead and install it, give the disk a trendy name and choose a root password, and reboot to make sure darwin boots. Ok now shut down the computer, place the darwin disk as second (slave) and the little one as primary. Ok now we boot up into osx, and map to the server with the moo image. Now we launch the "disk utility" (Applications, Utilities, Disk Utility). Go to File Open Disk image, and point it to the moo image on your server. Then you want it to restore the moo partition on the darwin partition into the destination (ie) big disk. Once its copied you should see the disk with a copy of OSX and the remainder will be much higher than the typical 1.2 gig. With that done, shutdown. Go ahead and remove the small disk, and place the big one as primary, and boot into single user, reset the passwords remove the AppleTPMACPI.kext, and reboot.... From here its like building the small disk... Oh and reset the permissions on the disk. Anyways I know that was a terrible write up im tired, but Im on a 40 gig disk now, so I know it works. Having a mac mini to bootstrap off of helps too!
