  1. Which release to use?

    Is using 8GB of ram still a problem these days? I remember in the past I had to maxmem=2048 otherwise it would lock up.
  2. Which release to use?

    Howdy I've tried installing OSX86 before and I ran into problems with my graphics card and mobo; I figured I would try again. Unfortunately there are so many releases available, I don't know which one to get. Does anyone have a suggestion for a release that would work with the following hardware: EVGA 780i Motherboard Using nForce SATA 8GB Ram (I think this gave me a problem last time too, I had random lockups unless I disabled parts of it) 2 EVGA GTX 285's (I don't care about SLI support, I just want atleast one card able to be accelerated. I heard there were new drivers uploaded that support the GT200 chip) Any help would be really appreciated (there are so many different releases out there)

  4. NVIDIA 9 Series Driver Installer v2

    Is there a chance this would work on 10.5.4? Whatever I do with my 9800GTX on 10.5.4 I get artifacts and no QE/CI; but res change works.
  5. 9800 GTX working in OSX86

    I also can't get my 9800gtx to work in 10.5.4 with default kexts (or the aquamac patched kexts). I get res change ability but I have weird artifacts on the screen and no QE/CI
  6. Hey guys I want to setup OS X on my 780i based system. I'm a big fan and love it on my macbook. With the specs listed below, which "flavor" of hackintosh should I get, and do I need to do anything additional? CPU: Quad Q9450 MOBO: evga 780i Ram: 8GB Video: 9800GTX SLI (It doesn't really matter if it actually uses SLI, I just want the main card to be accelerated) Lan: Bultin nForce Sound: Builtin HDA Audio HD: 500 GB SATA What are your thoughts?
  7. I'm thinking about running mac os x on my system. Would my system work with it, and if so what hardware would/wouldn't? Mobo: EVGA 780i Processor: Intel Q9450 Ethernet: Builtin to the mobo Hard Drives: SATA Sound: USB Audio (works, I've used it with my macbook) Graphics: EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX SLI (I doubt the SLI part would work) Thanks
  8. Hello, I recently installed 4GB of ram into my macbook and was wondering how much ram is supposed to be showing up in Activity Monitor. I've heard reports that 3.3GB would be usable, however according to the activity monitor it shows a 3.0GB. How do I get the 3.3GB instead of 3.0 usable like others have?
  9. Windows x64 on Macbook

    Does anyone know where I can get drivers so the MacBook Core 2 Duo will work in Windows XP x64?
  10. Native Linux (EFI?)

    I was wondering if anyone knows where there is a guide for running linux natively on the iMac? All the guides ive found either say to use a livecd that doesnt work anymore, or say to use boot camp. Im looking for a native EFI solution. Thanks
  11. Bootcamp 1.2 question

    I was just wondering if Boot Camp 1.2 came with drivers for the ATI cards in Vista. I ran setup and it completed, but it's still using the default microsoft driver for the X1600. Does anyone have any ideas, or know of a specific Catalyst version they'd reccomend?
  12. Memory reporting incorrectly

    try installing the 64bit version.
  13. The open source kernel is newer than the 10.4.7 stock kernel.
  14. Fortunately, the build tools from 10.4.x build to the next are the same almost every time; you can check apple's opensource.apple.com and look under 10.4.6 x86.\ It would have been alot easier if apple released the versions to go with it in the beginning instead of having to search the internet for every different guide on how to build the darwin kernel, many of which are for 10.3 and earlier. My guess is that the needed Xcode 2.4 was for newer assembly instructions that the previous build didn't understand; because i managed to compile everything else before with 2.3, but the kernel build would stop on an "unknown instruction" But mainly what I did before Apple decided to finish/(make their guide work) was: 1) Download the cctools, Libstreams, bootstrap_cmds and kext_tools. as well as the IOKit package. 2) Copy ar.h from /usr/include to cctools/include 3) Build cctools, Libstreams, bootstrap_cmds. (I don't remember if you just need libstuff libmacho and misc, from cctools but many of the guides online said that) 4) Make Install/Copy that stuff in (some need to be added to a path otherwise the make for the kernel wont find them etc) 5) Go into cctools/ld and do make RC_OS=macos kld_build; and copy libkld.a to /usr/local/lib 6) To make IOKit do: mv IOKitUser-297 IOKit sudo mv IOKit /usr/include/. sudo mv /usr/include/IOKit/kext.subproj /usr/include/IOKit/kext sudo cp -fpr cctools-590.23.2/include/mach-o /usr/include/. sudo cp -fpr cctools-590.23.2/include/mach/* /usr/include/mach That will make it so kextsymboltool will compile, then copy that utility to a directory in the path; /usr/local/bin should work 7) Compile the kernel A few notes would be that cctools may be ornorary when compiling, eventually I just went section by section I think and make install'd them before doing the whole package. Atleast one of the packages wouldn't compile completely for me, I think it probably was cctools, but the part that I needed for kernel building worked. This is only if you want to make the kernel build libraries yourself rather than using Apple's provided build tools. If anyone wants to know the exact versions of everything I used, I don't think I used odddevtools though, so don't download that: andrews-computer:~/Kernel/kernel_manual andrew$ ls IOKitUser-179.7.tar.gz.download cctools-590.23.2.tar IOKitUser-297.tar kext_tools-65.2 Libstreams-24.1 kext_tools-65.2.tar Libstreams-24.1.tar oddevtools-1.3.pkg bootstrap_cmds-49 oddevtools-1.3.pkg.tar bootstrap_cmds-49.tar xcode_2.4_8k1079_6936199.dmg cctools-590.23.2 xnu-792.10.96 andrews-computer:~/Kernel/kernel_manual andrew$ uname -a Darwin andrews-computer.local 8.7.2 Darwin Kernel Version 8.7.2: Tue Aug 8 21:20:32 CDT 2006; andrew:xnu-792.10.96/BUILD/obj/RELEASE_I386 i386 i386 Been running it for just about 12 hours now, it seems a tad faster
  15. You need to compile the cctools, and one of the last steps of that is doing kyld_build make RC_OS=macos kld_build while in the cctools-ver/ld folder it's one of the last things you do with cctools
