    RME HDSP MacOSX (x86) drivers released

    No luck. I think it's the driver.

    RME HDSP MacOSX (x86) drivers released

    Using the newest firmware for my rme hammerfall hdsp 9632 audio card on OSX 10.4.8 with the Semthex nd-2_3 kernel, I can get audio out but it is very distorted as everyone has mentioned.
  3. I'm not sure.. it's a delicate thing and vista's pretty clumsy. Good luck!
  4. Glad you got it. Vista's a little {censored} sometimes. I had to unplug my usb trackball or the installer wouldn't load. Also had to unplug all but one sata drive or it wouldn't install. (This is with the retail dvd and a fairly common setup!)

    OS X 10.4.9 Released

    Any luck with the new kernel & a core2duo?
  6. 1. Boot from the Vista DVD. 2. Create a primary partition for Ubuntu. (If Vista installs into the first partition, GRUB will fight with Vista's boot-loader. For this reason, we'll set aside room for Ubuntu first. -- I made mine a 25gb partition.) 3. Create a partition for the linux-swap (2x RAM size) + room for any extra partitions. (You can only have 4 primary partitions, and Ubuntu, Vista, and OS X will take up 3. However, we can later extend our fourth partition and make as many logical partitions as we need inside of it. -- I made mine a 102gb primary partition. 2gb for the swap and 100gb for my music and documents to share between the multiple OS's.) 4. Create a primary partition for Vista. (I made mine 60gb.) 5. Create a primary partition for OS X. (I made mine 45gb.) 6. Select the Vista partition and let it install, reboot, and run through the updates. 7. Boot from the OS X DVD. 8. Run Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. 9. Select the partition we created for OS X, go to the Erase menu, select Mac OS Extended (Journaled) for the format, and click Erase. 10. Quit Disk Utility, install OS X (with the necessary options for your processor and components), and let it reboot and run through the updates. 11. Boot from the Ubuntu CD. 12. Run the installer and fill out the forms. When you reach the "Prepare disk space" portion of the installation, select "Manually edit partition table" and click Forward. 13. Select the very first partition we created with the Vista installer for Ubuntu and click the paper shredder (2nd button) to "Delete the selected partition." Select the unallocated space and click New, then click Add. 14. Now select the partition we created for the swap + logical partitions and click the paper shredder again to delete it. 15. Click on that partition (which now reads as "unallocated") and click New. 16. If you don't need extra logical partitions, change the File system to linux-swap and click Add. If you do want one or more partitions, change "Primary Partition" to "Extended partition" and click Add. 17. If you didn't need the logical partitions, just click Forward. Otherwise, select the unallocated space underneath the extended partition and click New again. Change the size to roughly 2x RAM (1024MiB = 1Gb), change the File system to linux-swap, and click Add. Select the remaining unallocated space inside our extended partition and click New once more. Change the File system to FAT32 and click Add (this can be repeated for as many extra partitions as you want.) 18. Click Forward and Apply the changes to the partition table. 19. On the "Prepare mount points" screen there should be a check next to our Ubuntu partition and a check next to the swap. If there isn't, go back and check the partitions, making sure there is an Ex3 File system and a linux-swap File system. 20. Click Forward, then click Install. Let it reboot (into Ubuntu), then install the updates. 21. Boot from the Vista DVD again and click Repair. Restart and choose Ubuntu from the Grub list. 22. From the Accessories menu, open the Terminal. Type "sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst" (without the quotes) and press enter. (Use the password for the account you use to login to Ubuntu.) 23. Scroll to the bottom of the Grub config. and add the following lines: title Windows Vista rootnoverify (hd0,3) makeactive chainloader +1 title MacOS 10.4.8 rootnoverify (hd0,4) makeactive chainloader +1 #Note: (hd0,3) and (hd0,4) refer to hard drive number and partition number. 24. If you want the menu to stay up until you you select an OS, comment out the timeout command by adding a # before it. 25. Save, restart, and enjoy.
  7. Yeah. OS X starts to load (initial logo screen), glitches for a split second, turns black, then displays a grey square centered over the black screen with the "You need to restart your computer..." crash message. The driver must be somewhat working, as it appears to be at a higher resolution than usual (small crisp text.) Hopefully it's an easy bug to fix.
  8. After putting NVidiaEFI (1.0.2) in the extensions folder and repairing its permissions, I get the multilanguage crash screen on boot. It does, however, appear to be at a high resolution. Should I remove the other NVidia kexts? (such as NVDAResman.kext) ?
  9. I'm waiting for the same card to be supported. ::fingers crossed::
  10. I was planning on buying an NVIDIA 7900GS 256MB card for compatibility with OS X, but ended up getting a 7900GTX 512MB instead before checking the compatibility chart. I've tried the EFI, Titan, and Natit nvidia drivers with added device IDs and other mods to the code (with no success.) There are a few users running 512MB cards, so the problem must be driver (not kernel) related. For now, I guess it's back to Ubuntu. =/
