  2. Shutdown problem in 10.5.2

    Hi, I have different problem. Sleep works perfectly, shutdown works in 4 attempts of 5, but reboot doesn't :-) I'm running on vanilla kernel and update to 10.5.2 using netkas method and with netkas SMBIOS.
  3. I managed shutdown on Gigabyte 965P DS3 - it works for me and for my friend too... Use netkas sleep kernel and during boot just press F8 and write cpus=2 if you have dual core CPU. If you don't want still pressing F8, edit your com.apple.Boot.plist in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration Under section "Kernel flags" write cpus=2 save and reboot. If you let kernel recognize amount of cpus by itself, the shutdown won't work. Finally it works without any danger of kernel panic!
  4. I don't understand why, but it seems it works only for me :-( So this tuto is only for your own risk only! I saw here many people who tried to find howto get working sleep and poweroff. However I met with this problem on my mobo Gigabyte 965P-DS3 rev.2 I've discused it with Netkas (many thanks to netkas from me!), then I find out idea how it should be possible to manage it to get working shutdown. OK let's get started: 1. get sleep kernel mach_sleep from irc.osx86.hu #10.5 and save it on your desktop as mach_kernel 2. backup your kernel on / via: sudo cp /mach_kernel /mach_kernel.old 3. replace your kernel with new one: sudo cp -f ~/Desktop/mach_kernel / sudo chown root:wheel /mach_kernel* sudo chmod 644 /mach_kernel* 4. in case of problems use F8 before boot and write mach_kernel.old 5. Download AppleACPIPlatform.kext.zip and IOACPIFamily.kext.zip and unpack on your desktop. 6. Backup kexts (AppleACPIPlatform.kext, IOACPIFamily.kext) in your /System/Library/Extensions and then replace via: sudo cp -r ~/Desktop/AppleACPIPlatform.kext/ /System/Library/Extensions sudo cp -r ~/Desktop/IOACPIFamily.kext/ /System/Library/Extensions sudo rm -r /System/Library/Extensions.mkext sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/IOACPIFamily.kext/ sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext/ reboot. After reboot it should work, for me it works. AppleACPIPlatform.kext, IOACPIFamily.kext are used from 10.4.8. Also it can work on other mobos, where worked shutdown on 10.4.x and on 10.5.x doesn't.. As you can see you can used kexts from Mac OS on which worked shutdown... So share your experiences, I hope it help.
  5. I gave it up folks! I've choosed openSUSE 10.3 it's the best choice!
  6. Hello. Here is a descripton of my problem: On my PC I have Mac OS X 10.4.10 and I need to have access to the serial port (RS232, DB-9, on win named COM1 or whatever...). I can see in /dev two possible devices: cu.serial1 and tty.serial1 But, i can't access anyone of them: I've tried use paralles, Vmware, also RXTX via Java programming but without any success. I have a special HW (it is not a modem, it's my home made thermometer) which is connected to my PC only via serial port. I would like to use on my PC OS X only, but unfortunately - however I still can't find way how to access this serial port, I have to use Windows too :-( Please, if anybody can how to make it working, or any help via virtual PC or porgamme this port via Java or Xcode please please help me (I can make my own application for it)! I found that Apple Xserve uses Serial port (it's usual RS232) so there have to be some way how to access it. Thanks a lot! Peter
  7. I have /dev/cu.serial1 too but how can I access it in Crossover or some virtual machine?
  8. Hello All. I'm using Mac OS X on MB Gigabyte P965-DS3, and almost everything works fine. Everything but... no serial port (COM1)! Now I have a problem regarding serial port. I have a special application which uses (home made) thermometer connected to the serial port. This application is programmed for Windows and on Windows works fine. On Linux it works using Wine but on Mac OS X it doesn't works. Is there a possibility to have access on this port? Please write me any possibility: Crossover, VMWare, Parallels or native (I think it's possible to port this app to Java or C++) I need to get it working. I found somewhere here guide with using some "minicom" application but I couldn't get it working. Please If anybody knows how write me. Thanks!
  9. Yes, System profiler works OK, as you can see on the last screenshot. If you want to do dual boot the hack with chain0 works. Copy chain0 onto windows partition and use command bcdedit for adding new boot menu item. I 've used combination of Vista Boot pro and bcdedit... Gigabyte pack is for DS3/DS4 motherboards. If you set in BIOS Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode [AHCI] it should work, maybe it will boot 15secs longet but it will.
  10. Problem with Photoshop CS3 on Mac.

    Now, here is my answer for my problem, after update to Mifkis kernel and replacing AppleSMBIOS.kext everything works...
  11. Problem with Photoshop CS3 on Mac.

    I've tried replace AppleSMBIOS.kext but it didn't help
  12. I downloaded Photoshop CS3 for Mac from adobe to try. After I installed it and ran it I checked 30days period and I clicked OK: but Photoshop Crashed... (It dind't start: no splash screen etc... Just crash message window...) Did anyone meet with this error? Can anybody help me how to get it work? HW & SW configuration is below... I had installed Photoshop CS2 but i tried uninstall it and tried CS3 again but with the same result...
  13. Very possibly no! For Mic in or 5.1 on GA-965-S3 motherboard you must use ALC883 driver! Try to use this method (Use AppleHDAPatcher 1.14, 1.15 didn't work for me) or better this method. Other stuff I don't know...
  14. Same problem was in my case with 250GiB hdd. In installer I saw only 128GiB hdd so I installed OSX onto first 30GiB partition. After installing Gigabyte pack - (did you try it?) and reboot everything worked fine and I could see whole 250GiB. I have no experience with larger disks...
