I spent the entire night going through all the posts in the GMA900 how-to thread. Interesting points made by Maxxuss himself. Got me thinking. I believe I know what is going on and am now in the process of writing code to prove the point.

 

First of all:

 

I'm a Sparc/SunOS/Linux programmer. Sometimes I feel a little lost with OS X.

 

Here's the deal:

 

I need to access OS X memory directly, BUT, Apple decided it was a good idea to remove /dev/mem!

 

I could spend a few days trying to figure a workaround, and that's what I'll be doing, UNLESS...

 

...someone knows how and tells me :-)

Hey troisd, here is another idea which comes from the following thread:

http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...c=22052&hl=

 

I thought about it for a while. Instead of coding something within OS X, why not boot up some micro linux distribution, allocate video ram, turn on wireless , set processor speed to highest, etc. and then automatically do a warm reboot into OS X? Some people need to boot into windows firts to get all these things working.

 

just my 2 cents.
