    Random freezes

    Something I recently figured out that was helpful was I downloaded / copied from cds, different kernels and saved them in / I named them all like m107_kernel, m108_kernel, etc according to their versions and used the kernel name at chimera prompt to see which one worked better. The new 10.8 kernel works great for my i3 laptop, on fresh install I now copy it in then reboot to it to install combo update and [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Using this method allows me to finish the combo update where as with the normal kernel it will not. Long story short...try new 10.8 kernel (or others) and see how that does.
  5. Hi I have a Gateway NV5928u w/ Mobility 5470. Install Method [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Legacy w/ retail > 10.8 Kernel > 10.6.7 combo > [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] > Reboot Done Everything works including qe except transparency issues and of course the monitor issue. The internal monitor only works if I plug up an external monitor. I get nothing on external monitor at any point using vga or hdmi. I have tried forcing the edid w/ an overide however Im not sure if my internal monitor is being recognized therefore not loading the override. Its annoying to have to plug in an external monitor to use the internal, after i boot I can disconnect the external and everything still works. Also I can't get 1333 x 768 resolution, the closest thing I can get is 1280 x 768 which leaves about an inch black bar on the right hand side of screen, however not a big issue. Any help/ advice would be appreciated.
