  1. HPET and ACPI

    Everybody knows we live in a world where we need to disable AppleIntelCpu... becaude of the dreaded "Package 0 didn't get an HPET" which eventually brings our kernels to panic. Reading somewhere else (regarding the foxconn linux acpi controversy), it dawned on me that our situation might lie in the fact that the ACPI subsystem does not know what our OS is, and therefore does not make the HPET and other ACPI parts available to it, marking them as invisible. What do you think?
  2. ATI Radeon HD pkg installers 10.5.x & 10.6

    Tested on Sapphire HD3850 256M, bios 101 The first package appears to install fine, but does not install anything (its log reports versions are newer on disk and skips everything) After removing evvery referred file, it installs but it does not work: same pattern as before installing it. The second package installs only after removing the newer version files like the first, and then it seems to work. Hope this helps.
  3. Freezing issue on 10.5.2

    Appears that the culprit was the D-Link USB wifi after all. Ran for a week without it. The same usb stick crashed a friend's iMac in two hours, regardless of the drivers.
  4. Freezing issue on 10.5.2

    Not sure - my hd3850 runs about 65C-72C after a few hour in Leopard, but after removing the DWL usb stick my rig ran flawlessly until now. Tested on a vanilla installation, with only the hda and ati kexts added and fully updated.
  5. After a lot of installations on my new rig, and thanks to the help of many of you, I have set up my HackPro and EveryThing Seems To WorkTM. But... Very often I come back home to a frozen computer: no panic screen, nothing in the logs, just a frozen screen with nothing moving, so I am forced to restart. The same hardware runs happily for a week on Vista x64, so I suppose is a software issue. What can I test to solve this? My hardware configuration is as follows: Motherboard: GA-P35_DS3R v.2.0, bios F11 CPU: Q6600 quad-core, at stock speed RAM: 4x1G DDR2 800 Video card: ATI Sapphire HD3850 Wireless network: D-Link DWL-G122 rev.C1 Storage: On the ICH9R SATA ports: WD SATA2 HD, GPT formatted, Leopard Seagate SATA2 HD, MBR formatted, Vista SATA optical drive On the Jmicron IDE channel Two IDE drives, Linux I tried Kalyway 10.5.1 and iAtkos 1.0i r2 and first noticed this problem. Then tested a vanilla-only installation, using only dsmos.kext and removing appleintelcpu... Same issue Yesterday I tested Kalyway 10.5.2 with its many kernels vanilla 9.2.2 hangs Standard (sleep) 9.2.0 hangs kabyl 9.2.2 hangs modbin 9.2.2 seems to work, then hangs after passing ~3G of ram usage (maybe it is unrelated to my issue, can be a 32bit-only kernel?) Anyone can suggest what to try to solve this? EDIT Apr-13: Traced the issue to my wifi USB DWL-G122. Removed, installed vanilla + dsmos - AppleIntelCPU , ran happily since. I suppose it was a driver issue, as in vista had no problems with it
  6. Need help installing on AsRock Dual915g

    I saw this behaviour in Darwin, and the solution was pressing <ESC> when you see the boot screen.
