  1. AMD Dual Core audio/video issue

    I'm on Legacy kernel. My Snow Leopard Version is 10.6.
  2. Here is my problem (already posted in the new user lounge but no answer so...) : My Dual Core CPU seems to go sleeeping when I lsiten to music or watch a video... Because of that I have lags and sound crackles. If I move my mouse, the sound or video play normally. Adding the boot flags "idlehalt=0" and "cpus=1" didn't change that. The only "solution" I found is to open the terminal and type : yes > /dev/null But my problem isn't really solved... I need to do it everytime I want to listen to music. I want to delete windows from my computer but before I need to have a working OSX. If someone has an idea, I will be happy to try it ! (SSDT and DSDT patch or modifications won't work, if I've understand it works only for Intel CPU?)

    I found a "solution" to solve my sound/video lags/crakkles... I start a terminal window and type : "yes > /dev/null" It seems it's related to the power of the CPU... the CPU idle when playing a song or something like that. Adding the flags idlehalt=0 and cpus=1 doesn't change the lags... I also found a kext called VoodooPowerMini but it didn't solve my problem... For the fans, I will be more precise : they are working but they aren't changing speed so some parts of my laptop are fetting too hot. The only solution I found is to use an external usb Fan.

    I don't get it anymore >< I just installed 2-3 screens recorders and apps to show you my lags and they aren't there anymore ! I didn't touched any kext or something else, I just changed my bootloader theme xD 3 mins after writing this post they came again ><

    The boot/restart is fine (not really fast but there is no more error that make me wait 10 mins or more). The fans are still no working and the speakers don't take the SSE2 option at each boot in the VoodooHDA pref panel. And I still have my lags

    It's done, I finish to configure and add the GPU kexts and I tell you if it's different... I can already tell it's a better french translation and there is no more kernel panic when inserting a usb key =)
  7. Dell Vostro 1000 Hackintosh (Help needed =)

    Well I only found those kexts : Callisto.kext and CallistoHAL.kext You can download them here if you want to see : http://dl.dropbox.co...iRadeon1150.zip I really don't know how to enable QE/CI on my hackintosh... Apparently there is no way to enable QE/CI on my laptop GPU card, the only kext I found is this one (the beta 3 fixed) like it was written on this very good page.
  8. Dell Vostro 1000 Hackintosh (Help needed =)

    I was searching to show you where I got my GPU kexts and I found this topic : clic here And I just checked my own system profiler... guess what, it's worse than him... I have only 16 Mo of VRAM... I use the same kexts as him and I have the same GPU

    Ok I will try and tell you in 3 hours or tomorrow (because it's 40 mins to install OSX ^^)
  10. Dell Vostro 1000 Hackintosh (Help needed =)

    Ok Thank you for all these informations... Did I need to save my kexts to use them on the retail version? (or only the VoodooHDA and GPU kexts?) And if I still have my lags from what could it be coming from? (because apparently it's not from CPU and memory, neither boot.plist) (Because my Retail DVD may be ready in 2-3 hours or less) (I found it under the "dmg" format, how can I boot on it from a USB key? with the ModCD?)
  11. Dell Vostro 1000 Hackintosh (Help needed =)

    ( or maybe I won't have enough hardware performance to do it ?)
  12. Dell Vostro 1000 Hackintosh (Help needed =)

    Ok Did I need to buy a retail DVD (better for law issues I know) or is it fine with a DVD rip first? (if it works with a rip I will surely buy one DVD but I don't know yet...) Also if it is a Retail, I can install Lion or there are too much kexts problems?
  13. Dell Vostro 1000 Hackintosh (Help needed =)

    I already did it for the VoodooHDA panel. I just launched my music with iTunes and there was still 46,65% of the CPU usage idle when it was lagging For the memory it's the same there was 890 Mb free (on 2GB) iTunes used 1,2% of CPU and 45 Mb of memory If a Retail install is more stable than a distro I will try but isn't it wrong because I have a AMD Cpu? (OSX only works on Intel normaly right?)
  14. Dell Vostro 1000 Hackintosh (Help needed =)

    It's Snow Leopard version 10.6.6 and it's Hazard distro. (I'm still a newbie in hackintosh so I've never done a retail). For the GPU I found some kexts on the web but it isn't the cause of video lags because when I was on iDeneb I didn't had those lags. It ins't a sound kext problem, I already checked for VoodooHDA kext. The lag problem is like this : when I copy a file or listen to a sound or look at a video I need to continually move my mouse, if I don't move I have lags, if I move it is working fine... I really don't know where it is coming from. I can also lower the lags by pressing on my keyboard. I've already tried to change the PS2Controller.kext but I had the same issue. Thanks for the chameleon boot message access, but it's only showing me the last boot with my OSX86 ModCD so I don't know what could be the problem on HDD boot.

    I'll try it now and I'll tell you if there is any change Well it didn't boot at all with chameleon, I needed to boot with osx86 ModCD... It was a quick restart the last thing I saw was something like "EHCI"... If you want to see it yourself I can install something like Teamviewer or something else, may be it would be faster for you to see the problem. Is there a log for chameleon boot?
