DSDT CPU alias removal?

I was told by someone in an earlier post to remove the alias's from the dsdt but when I do

go into my dsdt using a dsdt editor. There is nothing like what people show me.

 

I can post my dsdt if you'd like. I type in the word "alias" in the search bar and i search through the dsdt, and only two alias's show up. it does not list them like most people have listed.

 

is there a reason?

 

I'm using the voodoo kernel

You're using the Voodoo Kernel, therefore you can't use AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext (the Voodoo Kernel automatically disables loading of this kext) and therefore you don't need to remove your CPU aliases from your DSDT.

 

Since Chameleon 2.0 RC5, removing CPU aliases is not necessary even on hardware that can run the Vanilla kernel. In fact removing the aliases can break native CPU power management in cases where the aliases are referred in the SSDT tables.

 

At least that's the way I understand it, hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

 

The real question here is what problem you're trying to fix?

Removing CPU aliases from DSDT will definitely not help with your issue.

I have a core duo t5600

You mean Core 2 Duo right? There is no Core Duo T5600.

 

Why are you using the Voodoo Kernel when your CPU is perfectly capable of running vanilla?

 

Maybe all you need is this - read the thread..

...and then grab the latest version from here:

IIRC there's also a Chameleon RC5 bootloader variant that has this built-in?

Well, problem is, i did install the voodootscsync.kext into my extensions folder, it caused kernel panic after kernel panic.

 

I've tried vanilla kernel also, with the voodootscsync.kext, didn't work. i tried everything You can think of! lol

 

is this tscsync supposed to work?

Sorry, I don't know anything about tscsync except that it can fix the problem you're having.

Obviously it works for this purpose as you can see in the thread I linked to. Of course it may not work for everyone.

 

It seems you're not alone with this problem, here's another nc6400 owner:

ok, now im confused. I just installed ipc 10.5.6 on my laptop alongside windows xp. i added cpus=1 to my apple.boot.plist and now i can't even boot with two cores even though it's enabled in bios.

 

xp only detects one core, i removed it from apple.boot.plist and it still doesn't detect. ;)
