Photoshop spinning wheel of death gigabyte p35-ds3p

Here is my setup and process:


ideneb 1.6 10.5.8 install via usb dvd drive

vanilla kernel

fix for 800mhz memory

ethernet prov100 (sp?)


jmicron patch




gigabyte p35-ds3p

nforce gfx 7950gt 512mb (fully working!)

audio installed alc89a which is not working. theres an icon, no sound. plugged into green port in back

2.13 ghz intel core 2 duo

4 gig memory 800mgz

hard drive serial ata raptor 74gig


after i installed my computer boots up under a minute and i installed the recent security update and everything seemed good to go!


here's the problem, when i open photoshop it runs great until i try to use the patch tool or stamp tool or try to drag and drop a layer. i just get the spinning wheel of death! i cant force quit or anyhting. But if i try to activate front row via keyboard short cut it works?!?! i can save the file just fine, super quick. no problems with transfering via usb or anything like that. so far besides audio, this is the only problem ive run into...


i ran into the same problem with photoshop when i installed a different version of ideneb 1.5 10.5.7 and photoshop gave me the same spinning wheel of death on the same commands. perhaps ill try another versoin of photoshop but i couldnt believe its that easy.


would this be the "ahci fix" that is provided on the dvd?


i really would like to be able to turn of ahci and run in ide mode if thats possible, i suppose thats a whole trick though.


thanks a bunch team.
