    nvidia 7150m/mcp67m

    It's been about a week, have you had any luck with the process? @mdwmgw: could we get a screenshot of your setup showing this working?

    Driver for nForce4 LAN

    Hey folks, I was just wondering if anybody had an idea about the upload problem? I tried sending a file through Adium and it produced the same effect. Uploading a random amount (usually a very small amount) causes the driver to go kaput. It doesn't mess up the state of the NIC as I can reload the driver and be back on, but uploading definitely causes problems. (which on a side thought might be related to the torrent issue as well)

    nForce LAN driver

    Hey, I just ran into a peculiar problem with the driver. After uploading (using ssh, although I haven't tried anything else) a certain amount, which is random each time, the driver seems to just stop working and I have to reload it to regain network access. It happens every time I try, and each time I need to reload the driver to get it back. dmesg doesn't seem to have any unusual output from the driver than what it normally does.

    0.62.10 claims my wire is unplugged. i tried turning off the computer for 30 seconds and all that jazz, but nothing\ Also, turning logging to 3 didn't produce anything extra

    nForce LAN driver

    Howdy, first off great work, eno unfortunately my card doesn't seem to want to work. it finds the card, and looks like its enabling it but then gives me a self-assigned IP address. the output i get is: nForceLAN: found nVidia MCP77 Ethernet Controller device 10de:0760 with flags 0x001af55b nForceLAN: Version 0.62.8 starting nForceLAN: found nForce LAN with MAC: 00:01:2E:25:8B:DD nForceLAN: Link speed now 10Mbps(duplex = Half, flow control = No), code 0x103e8 nForceLAN: Ethernet address 00:01:2e:25:8b:dd nForceLAN(en0): Link speed now 100Mbps(duplex = Full, flow control = Yes), code 0x10064. i grabbed the source from the first post and built it myself because the latest prebuilt caused a kernel panic on my machine (im using VoodooXNU 9.5.0 if that means anything) oh, and i tried doing a manual configuration instead of a DHCP connection and it still didn't work. im so close to internet, its just not giving me an ip address!

    NForce SATA Controller

    Hey folks, I added my MCP 78S devices to the driver, and it was able to find all 750GB's of my SATA drive running in AHCI mode. The only issue I'm having is that it seems to be having issues writing to the MBR. When I try to partition using the installer with the driver it isn't able to update that it just formatted a partition, although when I reboot it did do it successfully. Also, after installation all the files have been written to disk (in an amazingly fast install, 15 minute) but it doesn't install the boot loader. I'm thrown back to my usual Windows boot loader instead. What I'm asking, after all this, is whether or not there is something I can add/modify in the driver that will help me get complete access to the drive to allow me to install a bootloader? Cheers, ObsidianX P.S.: devices: 0x0ad010de SATA 0x0ad410de AHCI 0x075910de IDE
  11. I've hacked up the ACPICPUThrottle.kext to support full-range CPU throttling on my AMD Turion X2 TK-55 and would love to hear any successes with others wanting AMD throttling. The only thing I can say for myself is that I don't have video support so when I drop to 800MHz it gets very jerky. So if you happen to have a real graphics card and want to give this a go please let me know how it works out for you To install: Download this: ACPICPUThrottle_Startup.zip Move extracted folder to /Library/StartupItems/ Reboot Fix Permissions Reboot Again Voila, you'll have it going. If you'd rather test before setting it up as a startup item then just navigate into the folder thats extracted from the zip and run: sudo chown -R root:wheel ACPICPUThrottle.kext sudo chmod -R root:wheel ACPICPUThrottle.kext sudo kextload -v ACPICPUThrottle.kext sudo dmesg dmesg is to check the output to see if everything went alright. If everything did, then run: sudo ./CPUThrottleCtrl -v to run the throttling daemon. Let me know how it goes! Cheers! ObsidianX

    HELP! My Fan refuses to slow down!

    Not saying I know of a fix, but the fans are working correctly, they're on high because the CPU's on high. If anybody knows about a possible AMD CPU throttling kernel or extension please post in here

    Nvidia GeForce Go 7150M (Need Change Resolution)

    Look, people, the 7150 is not the 6150. Period. It's got a similar number but other than that its different technology. You can't apply the 6150 findings to this chipset. You just need to wait for some real development on the 7150 to take place which MIGHT not happen unfortunately for us.
  14. Alright, so you've got a laptop like mine using nVidia proprietary hardware like the MCP67. Although there are a few things still left to resolve such as graphics support (at least resolution changing) and CPU throttling, the rest is all working for those who wish to give it a go Now, first things first... my hardware specs: HP Pavilion dv6605us: nVidia MCP67 Chipset which includes: SATA HDD 160GB (dev: 0x0550) PATA SlimLine DVD Recorder (dev: 0x0560) Ethernet Adapter (dev: 0x054C) GeForce 7150m (dev: 0x0531) Also including: Conexant HD Audio (dev: 0x5045) Broadcom WiFi Adapter (dev: 0x4311) AMD Turion 64 Mobile TK-55 1.8GHz The following is in the laptop, but doesn't work in OS X: Ricoh Firewire 1394 mini port (might work, not tested) Ricoh Memory Card Reader (SD/xD/MMC) One thing to keep in mind: if any of the instructions in this tutorial do not work for your particular laptop but the Vendor and Device ID's match up to mine, there might be slight variations in the hardware preventing things from working. Although I don't think this would be a problem I can't rule it out. Installation: The installation disk that I used to install was Leo4All v4.1. You can find this at what ever source you prefer, I won't post specifics here. This particular release contains the driver package for the hard drive already. The only thing that I encountered was that it did not use said driver during the installation process. To solve this I injected the driver into the Extensions.mkext myself. After a few attempts of using the AppleNForceATA.kext's I found here on the forums to no avail I hacked up the driver to include my device ID's with great success. The source code and compiled driver are both attached to this post. If you need to inject it into the Extensions.mkext I have a tutorial over here related to injecting drivers. I have had no success with this but if you want to try just using the Extensions folder on the DVD (/System/Library/Extensions/) be my guest, just drop the driver in there and hope for the best. Once you've gotten the disk to successfully find your HDD the rest is straight forward during the installation wizard. Don't use any of the Language Packs that you don't need, as each one adds a few minutes to the installation time, making the installation dreadfully long if you have them all selected. For the options related to our hardware use: Forcedeth-V ONLY SMBIOS667 ONLY (check your memory speed to find out which number to choose, mine is 667MHz) 9.4.0 Kernel ONLY NForce67 and ONLY the Nforce67 package Do not select anything for audio, we have our own to install once we're in the system I'm pretty sure I selected the 1.1.2 ACPIPlatform package. Read the description to make sure it reflects the rest of the choices above. Aside from those, read the others to see if you wish to give anything a try, applications are all optional. Audio: Audio is so very, very simple thanks to Greenturtle985's post about the AppleAzaliaAudio.kext. Install the attached kext to get your audio to work Graphics: I've had no success as of late with the GeForce 7150m due to its shared memory setup. I've been trying to get in contact with the old devs to the closest thing we've got, MacVidia, but they've yet to even acknowledge my emails/posts/PM's/etc. If anybody has any info on at least changing the resolution for this card please let me know. DVD Drive: I haven't worked it out yet but the DVD drive doesn't read disks at the moment. The device is properly detected by the system but is not receiving any data from disks. I believe my AppleNForceATA hack may have something to do with this, updates when I fix it. UPDATE: I fixed my AppleNForceATA hack to not grab the DVD drive as well during the boot process and made AppleVIAATA grab it instead, this fixed the issue and I can read/write disks now. Attachments have been upadted. Wireless: Should work out-of-the-box with the official Apple drivers. If not, post info on it.

    Shared Memory NVIDIA Cards

    One more thing to add: My intentions with this are NOT, I repeat, NOT to get QE/CI enabled with this but simply have the proper resolution on my laptop. If we did happen upon getting the sources it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility to try implementing some sort of QE/CI support into it but that would NOT be my main goal for starters. Just thought I'd make that clear after reading so many posts on here about people down-talking attempts such as this because of the futility in QE/CI.
