Version 3 of eddie11c's popular Leo4all release has been uploaded to a private ftp, and should appear 'around' shortly. Leo4all is a 'universal' release and works on AMD and Intel. The official release notes are attached, here are the highlights:

First and most importantly is a totally rebuilt filesystem. The advantage with this is I no longer had to script a repair permissions from the DVD. This speeds install a good bit for most people. Don't worry if the timer says some outrageous time, as it does not calculate it correctly. The initial package install is very large and takes the most time, but once its done the install is almost done. I still recommend running repair permissions from Leopard once your all loaded up to fix some errors, but none of these will stop the system from booting. If you run it twice you should see zero errors on Intel and 2 SUID files on AMD. There is an install script that crashes on AMD machines causing this, but to keep everything perfect on intel I chose to leave the script intact.


This DVD now supports AHCI with more than 2 drives thanks to the updated kext's posted by Cyclonefr.


Also fixed this go around is X11 for both Intel and AMD. If, when you close it the first time, cpu usage jumps to 100% open terminal and type xeyes & to fix it. You will need to reboot after, but it should never glitch again.


There is no longer a ./RemoveVideo script, it has been updated and is now called ./options.



1.1.0 or 1.2.1. Included in each is ACPIPS2Nub to fix PS2 issues.


AppleSMBIOS:I put in lots of choices for different versions based on bus speed if you want it to show your proper memory speed, or if you want your hack to look like a real mac. The default install if nothing is selected is Netkas improved version 27.


Options are:


















I have added Netkas 9.2.0 sleep kernel, and 9.2.2 binpatched kernel ny Modbin(Be warned this does not work on all AMD machines! SSE3 CPU is required!). The default install is still Netkas 9.2.0 speedstep kernel. There are also the Stock kernels(vanilla) 9.2.0/9.2.2




For those that have issues with FireWire, or those that just want to speed their boot time a little. This moves all of the IOFireWire kext's to /FireWire folder in the root of your install drive.


About This Mac:

This is my own little installer to customize "About this Mac" with your processor info. No it does not fix memory speed, you have to do that with AppleSMBIOS. It should work for all languages and should report overclocked CPU's properly.


Power Management:

By popular demand I added the laptop power management bundle to the install. You will still need to set it up in system preferences. This is known to have a few minor bugs. It may not report the proper time remaining or any time remaining for that matter, so use at your own risk. If you select this please do not select an ACPIPlatform, as this requires version 1.1.0.


AMD System Fix:

You will notice it is checked and greyed out by default. To take out alot of user error (people forgetting to check it for their AMD systems) I have added a script to detect the CPU and patch accordingly. When its running it will echo your processor information in the install log (if you show all). It will then skip the patch process if your on Intel or patch if its an AMD. I hope it works well for everyone!



This option is checked and greyed out by default. It is Dense's script to install EFI and make the partition active. If you already have an existing bootloader (like from Vista) on the same logical drive it will not overwrite it. It will however flag the partition you installed to active, so you will have to manually set your Windows partition active again if needed.


Chipset Drivers:

(NOTE- JMicron is the only driver that always installs so please choose at least 1 option, some will have to choose 2 [if you have Marvell IDE and Intel SATA for example] ) If your not sure you can click all but 1 Nforce, as they will overwrite each other.


Nforce Old - This is the older version of Medevils Nforce(1.0.2) driver. Install this if you have issues with SATA enabled causing a panic. Known to work for some Nforce3 users.


Nforce Test- If you have a SATA DVD or do not have issues booting the DVD normally choose the NforceTest.


SiliconImage3132 - I have not found anyone that uses this specific chipset to confirm if it works.


VIA, SiS, Marvell and SB - Please install this if you are using any of these chipsets. If you have a Marvell IDE drive please install this as they should be supported. I have added many ID's here so I hope they all work! This chioce installs AppleVIAATA, AppleOnboardPCATA and AppleGenericPCATA. Confirmed working for SiS!


SAS - By request I added support for this, as of my writing this its untested. Hopefully it works.


Intel ICHx- If you have ICH7/8/9 chipsets you should install this. This is the modified version by -Dune- to support more than 2 drives and fix the over 2Gigs of RAM panics.



These choices have not changed much, only added support for STAC9271 by request. If your not sure what chipset you have, please choose AzaliaAudio(for most HD) or AC97Audio.

Choices are:












Graphics Drivers:

I have updated many of these packages.


ATI- there are options for:






















X1400 Mobility



Nvidia- I have updated the drivers to the latest available from the Mac Pro's and edited to include all Device ID's I could verify. This should cover mostly all 6XXX/7XXX/8XXX series cards. (List of ID's found in attached release notes)


NVinject- By request I have added options for different version of Nvinject(0.1.3/0.2.0/0.2.1). If your not sure choose version 0.2.1 with the proper amount of RAM your video card. I have added a modified version of 0.2.1 for 1Gig of VRAM.


GMA950 - QE/CI+resolution change with some artifacts


GMA950 - No Aritfacts QE/CI but no resolution.


GMAX3100 - suppose to give QE/CI(confirmed for device ID 0x2a02)


Network Drivers:

ForceDeth- This is compatible with most Nforce LAN.


ForceDeth-V - This is compatible with most Nforce LAN(recommended version)


Skge - Driver for most Marvell LAN cards.


RTL8187- Just as it says for Realtek 8187


Zydas USB- For the USB Wireless LAN adapter


Tiger IO80211- Some Atheros cards require this Tiger version to work. Default install is IO80211 from 10.5.2


Broadcom- WLAN driver for BCM4306/4309/4318/4320/4324


RT2500- Suppose to support Dlink WMP54G v4.0, may support some others.


ViaRhine- Just as it says, for ViaRhine chipsets


Intel 100Pro VE- Just as it says, for the Intel 100Pro VE chipset


RT2860- Driver for some chipsets like WL-181, may also work on some others.


Good Applications:

You can choose to install or not, but I do recommend many of these useful programs. They include:














Gumby 50c








Marvin's AMD Utility






PackageMaker version 2.1(old harder to find)


Stuffit Expander

The mentionedAbout This Mac CPU information installer is an absolute gem! Thanks for all of the hard work eddie11c: I can't (and I know many of you can't either) wait to try this out :(

I get wifi working AND an upgrade to 10.5.2? YAY! I always seem to have better luck with pre-patched installs over patching myself, so hopefully this solves my wifi. And while its at it, I hope it solves my requirement of shutting off a core on my cpu... looks very promising.

I hope somehow the ethernet issues are fixed with the Via Rhine II from disconnecting itself and having to use cpus=1.Also, everyone who's getting it from tpb, please seed at atleast 40kb so we can get this faster. It's going pretty slow right now.Once it gets finished, I'll toss it up on private trackers in case someone wants it.I've got a 1.5MB/sec upload line dedicated to bittorrent, as well as a seed box that I can throw it on.
