The Introduction

 

This is my last project that I'll be doing on InsanelyMac and its also probably the best. I've constructed a system where the application uses device ID based detection to automatically download and install the correct drivers for your hardware from an online driver database. I already have a working beta, so if anyone wants to beta test, contact me. Beta testers must have at least 2 devices from the list of supported devices in the Xlabs thread (link at bottom) This system will eventually be integrated into OSx86 Tools once I reach a stable working system. For example, this is what the program detected on my hardware (Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3P with NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GS). Note that your hardware still has to be OSX86 Supported, it won't make old unsupported hardware work like magic :jester: :

As you can see, everything above has been detected correctly, shows the hardware name, type, and download URL for the drivers. All the driver information, including hardware names, device IDs, and download URLs are contained inside a single XML file. I decided to go with XML rather than a PLIST because XML is much more flexible for these operations.

How it works

 

The program uses device ID based detection to detect your hardware. To get a list of device IDs, it uses the Mac OS X port of the LSPCI command. It takes the device ID list and repeatedly matches each device ID against the device ID list in the XML file. Once it finds a match in the XML file it parses the XML and grabs the info for the file, type, name, download etc. This info is stored in variables and then eventually outputed into a table as you see from the screenshot above. Then its the basic stuff from then, the program takes the download URL, downloads the zip, unzips it and copies the contents to the Extensions folder, and then sets permissions.

 

When will it be here?

 

The code base for the app is done, I am already giving out beta copies for people to test!

What can I do to help?

 

The obvious thing right now you can do to help is follow these instructions to submit some device info about your hardware to me, and what drivers you used and how you patched. This not only benefits me in terms of adding all this stuff, but it benefits you because if you submit, chances are that it will be supported in the app and you can use it.

 

More information can be found in the X Labs thread here

~Pcwiz is whitout any contradictions, the master of OSx86. Thanks for this great release and hope one time, I will be "hot" like you. I can dream for a while hahah :jester:

Huge advancement here. Here is a quick screenshot of the basic interface:

The app is basically done. All I need to do is add more devices. Who wants to beta test? Beta testers should have at least 2 supported devices from the list in the first post of the Xlabs thread to test. The most compatible hardware ATM is the Gigabyte P35-DS3P/DS3R/DS4 series and any other motherboards that have identical hardware to that of those motherboards.

Well actually, its completed. I've tested it on my own system and it works great, one click works all ;) All I need now is the input of all the end users so that I can add more support for devices! Remember, its for your own advantage if you submit info :) If your OSx86 drivers get overwritten by an update, all you have to do is click one "Download & Install" button and that's it :)

Woah pcwiz, that is the holy grail of OSX86.

 

Congratulations.

Excellent, as usual. Thanks PCWiz.

 

Now collaborate with diabolik and ask him whether you could use his shiny domain osx86.me as vhost for the online driver database! :-D

Yeah, I'll ask him about that -_- Right now the drivers are hosted on a free host with 5GB storage and Unlimited bandwith, so ATM its ok.

PCWiz, excellent work as usual :thumbsup_anim:

I own a webhosting company if you want like 20GB Free space and unlimited BW on a reliable server if you want for free cause your sooooo good ;)

Oh btw, in one of ur posts i see u said you can beta test if you have two of those above items. I have 3 of those items so could I beta test this for you please?

Thanks

Jonty

PS. Can you help me with my gfx card. Its my built in display that isnt been recognised as it works on externel display. GFX card is Intel GM965 Intel GMA X3100. Its a Toshiba Equium L350 Laptop.

Cheers!

I'll be more than happy to test it out.

 

Note: .co.nr sucks, there are MUCH better free domains, like http://uni.cc or http://co.cc ; both support DNS if needed and are all for free.

 

EDIT: I noticed that (a) my 2600PRO isn't on the list and (:) my ALC880 audio codec isn't on their either...I mean I can get those 2 working in a few seconds by installing the kext files with kext helper...but yeah.

Thanks. The audio is actually ALC883 codec, not ALC888 :) I will add the laptop drivers to the app, what driver did you use for your 8600GT? I can add that too. Can you give me the output of "lspci -nn" too please? The above output doesn't have the device IDs :(

 

What do you think about this ?

 

post-178287-1216611948_thumb.png

 

Audio device is ALC883 but Mixer says Realtek ALC888 and this works with ALC888 package installer, its no clear for me.

Attached is a ZIP file containing my 2 drivers I needed for Leopard:

 

+ forcedeth_nockd.zip

>>> forcedeth_nockd.kext

+ ALC880.zip

>>> ALCinject.kext

>>> AppleHDA.kext

 

As for my 2600pro, I've tried every driver out there and it just doesn't want to work. But what I'm gonna try out next is, unplug everything but my monitor, KB, mouse, and sound, and see if it will work.
