Can somebody post a screenshot with about this Mac active?

Also the latest kernel should work with Pentium 4 and Atom... ;)

is it enough ?

i'm only using your latest kernel w/o the system.kext & voodoopstates

CPU Unknown?

I need to fix that... ;)

The "???" after the 6GB of Memory isn't the error of kernel (I think) so it is no improtant.

 

I have no pink icons, because I use Launchpad Refresh.app and I forgot to turn it off ;)

But the dirty icon bug is still here.

 

EDIT:

But maybe "???" is the bug of kernel, can you fix that?

After 6 GB "???" - it is only from chameleon !

I revised the kernel some more.

Right now I tested it on an AMD E1 APU.

The kernel contains both my tsc.c and cpuid.c mods as well as Bronzovka's

New boot arguments:

-alttsc (Use my procedure to calculate clock frequency, this was needed on the AMD APU)

-altcache (Use my old cache determination procedure enhanced with TLB calculation from Bronzovka, was also needed on the APU or KP).

-emulateintel (Set Core 2 Duo or Intel Xeon E processor data and copy GenuineIntel in).

I also revised the opemu some more (should be faster as it first checks for SSSE3 instruction).

 

No SSE3 emu yet... haven't had the time.

It is next on my list...

 

Please test it and let me know...

 

with both -alttsc and -altcache it runs just like my old kernel... but with Bronzovka's genial other fixes ;)

 

@Bronzovka: I compiled up some info of the APU... we should add that to your cache determination and TSC detection.

thanks for kernel! seem that boot faster..

Did you try the -aticache boot flag to fix the L2 cache?

AnV didn't mention about "-aticache" flag  :)

-altcache (Use my old cache determination procedure enhanced with TLB calculation from Bronzovka, was also needed on the APU or KP).

@ Andy

Here is "About this Mac" Phenom II x4  B50 and machdep:

 

post-513502-0-21950000-1384698277_thumb.png

 

I do get a KP on this kernel, "kernel_bsa", when I run Geekbench3 (not in Geekbench2), can't get an image though, I'll see what I can do.

But very happy about the Pink Launchpad gone (for me -5770) :)

 

Youtube videos on Safari are working well for me, however the QT screen-capture looks garbled:

yup! you got the same false reading of the L2 cache compared to this one

 

are you running the launchpad reset script on the startup ?

 

Yeah, sure enough.... 2x512 is not right! hadn't seen it before!.

 

are you running the launchpad reset script on the startup ?

 

 

That's a negative... NO launchpadreset.app on my 5770 :) ... beta_kernel from Bronya also was wo/ Pink launchpad errors! :D  The pink never bothered me much so I never used the reset app...  :rolleyes:

So maybe the pink launchpad gets because of some kext? Maybe we should try delete some kext and check if still is pink...? hmmm?

Could you upload your Extra folder?

Andy kernel works well, there are only png capture which retains the red image, the resolution change are disappearing pink icons QuikTime works well and the "export, Sempron is not a powerful CPU, it is good for dual core Atlon a great step forward ......….:)

So maybe the pink launchpad gets because of some kext? Maybe we should try delete some kext and check if still is pink...? hmmm?

Could you upload your Extra folder?

 

 

I don't think that it maybe my Kexts... most of them are for functionality:

 

ALXEthernet  -AtherosL1c ether kext

AppleATIATA -ATI Sata (this one maybe superfluous)

DVD_Apple -AnV's Superdrive kext

FakeSMC -fakesmc

corecrypto -patched

PXHCD -USB 3

 

 

Also I have them in S/L/E not in Extra/E

but I am attaching none the less:

 

S_L_ExtandExtra.zip

 

Additionally: though I don't get the Pink Launchpad I get  Errors on screen capture ( quicktime.gif  utube.mov   3.39MB   2 downloads) and the icon errors as well as Preview Greenness when saving/copying.

Ok, you're right. These kexts are for functionality only. Just thought that you never had problem with pink icons etc, so maybe you use/don't use some kexts.

But thanks a lot man :)

I only had problems from rc5 to rc7 (i.e. pink launchpad)... before and after those Launchpad behaves...

 

I attribute it to being MacPro5,1 along with OEM Radeon 5770.

No prob... :thumbsup_anim:

Its just a guess though..  :fishing:

Actually tragediana you may be somewhat right!! :) I was doing tests with all of my Kexts (I also had corecrypto -patched) apparently having all of my kexts in S/L/E it fixes Pink Launchpad... you see I do get it but for half a second then they disappear really fast.... but remove all to E/E they remained pink the whole time (10 mins)

 

Thats how it works for me, maybe test it?

 

@DJPhoenix

Careful w/ support stuff guys ?delete the ones you don't need?

have you tried removing:

-ApplePolicyControl

-AppleUpstreamUserClient

-AppleTyMCEDrvr

??

Yes , i re-search and i found fails in cupid and tsc for family 12h and 14h , family 12h and 14h don't support address8000_001D, then should work on amd-apu_e1 .

Wait for kernel without flag -altcache and -alttsc...

Yes we need to fix this.

I'll work on this tonight too ;)

Hi Tested latest kernel.... still pink launchpad, clock still jumping all over time...

otherwise pretty good!  ; )

 

AMD64X2 3800+ , Nvidia 9400GT, 4 G ram, Nvidia MC61 chipset (2008)

 

 


timing problem causing clock issues??  see Diagnostics messages "exceeded max slew - resetting clock"...

      This is bothering me for a long time now: Why does Apple deliberately disables the the RX4xx, RX5xx capabilities to hardware encode HEVC and is using Intel Quicksync instead? Is it to make the iMacPro look better than it is? I stumbled over a thread at tony-mac where people are going a totally different road for Radeon graphics. Instead of hassling around with getting Quicksync to work, they proposed to activate the AMD hardware renderer for Polaris GPU's. I tried it out and it works...somewhat
       
      I used a dummy kext from that tomato thread and edited it, so that it enables the AMDU7V4 IOGVACodec like on Vega cards, switched to iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS from iMac18,3, disabled the IGPU and the results were astonishing:
      My 3:34min 4k50p film was rendered by FCP with HEVC in 2:34 minutes. Nearly half the time than with Quicksync! With the iMac18 SMBIOS and the "help" of Intel Quicksync it took FCP 4:41 minutes to get it done!
       
      The problem is: As soon as the "wrong" IOGVACodec is enabled H.264 encoding leads to Mojave crashing at once (be it FCP, QuickTime or Videoproc). Watching H264 material is fine, though. 
       
      If anyone has any idea how to handle this, I would be very grateful. I would even accept Mojave using software encoding for H264 if I could keep this amazing speeds on HEVC!
       
      BTW: Without IGPU on iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS no problem with DRM or iTunes, no need for Whatevergreen or Shiki. That is a bonus

      Possiedo questo Acer è vorrei sapere se secondo voi è possibile installare Mac OS high sierra partizionando un hdd e mantere anche Windows. Premetto che ne capisco poco. 
      Processore A9 9420 Scheda video condivisa Radeon R5. Se volete altri dettagli chiedetemi perché non so cosa altro aggiungere.

      hi I have this build:
       
      - AMD Athlon X4 631
      - ASRock A75M-HVS (link)
      - AMD HD 6670
      - 8GB DDR3
      - 250GB HDD
       
      Which version of MacOS can I install?
      Which kernel?
    • By shinho73
      I know that it is almost impossible to install any os x on AMD APU netbooks, but i am hoping that  someone could help me here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thank you
