Booting in verbose mode: sleep/awake and USB devices

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm the lucky owner of a Mac Pro 1,1 (bought in 2006, I upgraded it with 2 Intel Xeon x5355 processors and now it is a 2,1) and user of Chameleon, in order to have the kernel running at 64 bit and to enjoy Mountain Lion.

Everything is working like a charm, apart the problem that happens when, after putting my Mac to sleep and awakening it, I connect a USB device.

In fact, if I boot Chameleon in normal mode, after awakening and connecting a USB device I experience a kernel panic, but if I boot in verbose mode the problem disappears (except in very rare circumstances).

I am sure that Chameleon is a very interesting and genial project, but unfortunately at the moment I don't have the time to study it.

What happens when you boot in verbose mode?

I would like to boot anyway in normal mode, because verbose mode is rather intimidating, with those hundreds of lines of commands during the bootup process.

 

 

Can someone help?

Thank U! :idea:

@iFire

Thanks for your interest and prompt response! :)

I'm going to attach in the original message also the compressed Extra Folder.

 

Oh… I didn't see that I can attach the compressed Extra Folder also here, with the Full Editor: I'm doing the same thing here.

Dear iFire,

U R ***GREAT***! :thumbsup_anim:

Many many thanks for your interest in solving the problem!

I have done many tests, and everything is working fine even in normal mode: only 1 time the Mac Pro froze, after I awaked him and switched on my external speakers (USB connected), but it was a case, and anyway this happened sometimes also before, with the verbose mode.

In the following tests the problem has not occurred anymore.

 

I would not want too much advantage of your availability, but… can I ask you another couple of questions?

I don't understand why when I restart the Mac, the external speakers switch off (really this "problem" is of secondary importance).

And I would like to know if there is a chance to restore the recovery partition with Chameleon, or if this is impossible with a Hackintosh.

After installing Mountain Lion following the Jabbawok's method on my real Mac:

the recovery partition disappeared.

 

:thanks_speechbubble:

Thanks again! :D

OMG… my Mac Pro has started to crash again… and I don't understand why. :(

I'm enclosing a message from Chameleon (verbose mode).

Can someone help?

The problem only happens, after sleep/awake, when it comes the moment to connect a USB device, and I'm very respectful of the environment.

Thank you

Finally I solved the problem with a clean installation of the system!   
Now, after 3 weeks, I can cry Victory without the fear that it's too soon.
Anyway it's important that I boot Chameleon with the boot flag -f and using Kernel cache:
   <key>Kernel Flags</key>
   <string>-f</string>
   <key>UseKernelCache</key>
   <string>Yes</string>

Long live the Mac Pro 1,1!

 

Thanks
