[AMD] Yosemite Kernel Testing (for help use the Help Topic)

1,948 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've tested both kernels.

 

pros:

glitches on icons are gone

can select icons in desktop

 

cons:

  1. stores and safari broken again, fix not working
  2. graphical glitches are still present in image thumbnails in finder and in Preview (and many other places like Skype avatars)
  3. graphical glitches were introduced to the UI in some places (see attachment)
  4. still cant select items in finder without selecting by the name
  5. video playback is broken on final cut pro (only rendering was broken with rc1 which still is, see attachment)
  6. Kernel 2 breaks almost half of the System Preferences panes (see attachment)
  7. the old opemu error is gone but there's a new one that appears seemingly as often in kernel 1, I don't think it does in kernel 2
kernel[0]: BUG in process suhelperd[204]: over-released legacy external boost assertions (1 total, 1 external, 0 legacy-external)

I think that's about it.

Hello Bronya ,

 

kernel1 is better of kernel2 :)

 

look vidéo :)

 

sempron_kernel1.mp4.zip

 

RC2 #1 does allow me to take screenshots with CMD-SHIFT-3/CMD-SHIFT-4 (with old known bug), something that RC2 #2 does not permit (returns above error message all the time, i.e. "Your screen shot can't be saved. Failure to write image data.").

 

Changing desktop wallpaper appears very buggy with both kernels, the resulting screen background being usually totally corrupt.

 

I've also noticed that icon selection or icon double clicking has to be done at or very near icon's name. Double clicking the top half of a folder icon does not open it for instance. I have to click much below than usual.

same issues is present for my config.

Safari and App Store not loaded, even with framework fix.

part of my system.log

Users with appropriate nvidia graphics cards, should note here:
Current Web drivers see here, these are constantly updated by fantomas1, many thx

 

noted the comments below:

for those who have the last nvidia web driver (this also concerns the previous releases) and have the 'CUDA Driver update required' message with the last for example "CUDA 6.5.18" driver version, here's the fix:

 

Go to /Library/Frameworks/CUDA.framework/Versions/A/Resources then open Info.plist.

 

Find NVDAResmanVersions and add this:

 

343.01.01

To answer your Question, looking at the compile date on uname -a the Kernel is RC1

More tests and findings here:

  • Safari buggy and crashing quite a lot
  • Colour corruption of apps icons in LaunchPad
  • AppStore appears not fully functional (permanent circling flywheel at top left corner + no contents displayed in main window)
  • Graphics glitches with some app Windows frames and buttons, like a Wifi configuration utility (faded top left buttons for instance)

 

But very happy nevertheless! :rolleyes:

Erm, Raboebie... did you read the post just above yours?

 

Coming back to my own rig, I've returned to RC1 as, indeed, with Duran's fixes, Safari works, I have a lot less graphics glitches with windows & buttons (even though desktop icons have defects) and AppStore works Ok too.

I will test i have tried the first one and had a prob where i could only open files by clicking there name in icon view i will test and report if the problem persists.

Still didn't work :( as many people have reported that the rc1 seems to generally be better so i am going to switch back to rc1 though both kernels are good bronya just comparing which things i would rather have working ;) .

Good news! I hope this resolved our problems with images.

 

Please test this here, our graphic problems after edit images and save them. I can not test at the moment, because I have another problem.

 

crusher a User from HackintoshOSX.com had the same problem, he has installed the OpenCL.framework from Mavericks, now the problem seems to be resolved.

"Look I fix problem for save picture.
I going on Mavericks and go to the System/Lybrary/Frameworks and copy OpenCL.framework to my Data partition.

After going to Yosemite System/Library/Frameworks and change OpenCL.framework.And now work."

I think more of a problem OpenCL nvidia and not general, nvidia has always been low in OpenCL, SSE3 CPU problems are different, and different between PentiumSSE3 and AtlonSSE3.

we must try but hey ..........I do not have this problem with my HD 6670  :)

@TheShewolf, Unfortunately I can not confirm that the upper variant "OpenCLFrameworks" of Mavericks fixes our problem with Nvidia graphics Card. :(

 

I have had the whole term with Mavericks no problems with the graphics, now I'm going with my nvidia graphics card thrown back to the problems we had to Mountain Lion. We must find a solution to the problem :blush:

 

This is very annoying, because image processing is not possible, I have not tested Adobe tools, but I suppose I must count on with similar problems. :(

I use photoshop cs5 and it works perfectly. only apple apps are the problem. and anything that uses their frameworks like pixelmator, I'm guessing.

Can confirm with OpenCL framework replaced from Mavericks 10.9.5, Preview now edits and saves perfectly, FX 8350  :)

Also had choppy video/audio playback in Quicktime and this is now corrected too!!!

      Ciao ragazzi,
       
      ho provato ad eseguire l'installer di Yosemite su un
      Asrock H110 BTC+
      Intel G3900 (con FakeCPUID 0x0306A0 e flag -xcpm)
      GeForce 710
       
      ma dopo aver raggiunto lo step di "bluetooth transport" mi dà il simbolo del divieto d'accesso.. Cosa sbaglio?

      Hello Everyone,

      Trying to get Hardware Acceleration working on my Hackintosh (HEVC Support) however I am such a noob, OpenCore is very new to me and would love some support.
      I have included screenshots and the EFI that is currently working on my System, I have USB 2 & 3.0 all working, however, the only thing I can fault is my GPU not being hardware acceleration enabled.

      Final Cut Pro X - Recognises GPU
      VideoProc - Doesn't recognise anything.
       
      (I am running the latest version of OpenCore 0.5.9)

      Things I've tried: I tried following the post https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/catalina-10-15-2-update-lost-hevc-h265-acceleration.288563/ - No Luck
      I have also tried: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/activate-amd-hardware-acceleration.2180095/page-53?post=28255048#post-28255048 - No luck either!

      My friend online tells me I shouldn't need such Kext as he has the same build as me but when I load his EFI on my system it boots with no USB 2 or 3.0 (I'm keeping his EFI off here as I've uploaded mine.)

      Please note: I appreciate all (any) pieces of advice and please do bear in mind that I am a noob and may need whatever you say simplifying as I can get easily confused.

      Radeon RX 580 8 GB graphics card on macOS High Sierra (as of 10.13.6), Mojave and Catalina on the P55-USB3 board: excellent performance with acceleration (Metal) OOB, no need for drivers (kexts), with 3 drawbacks, one has to do with the boot of the operating system (a solution is proposed), another with the number of rear connectors enabled (a solution is proposed) and another that only affects to one phase of the Mojave or Catalina installation (without clear solution for now).

      I have placed the XFX AMD Radeon RX-580 P8DFD6 8GB Triple X Edition GDDR5, 256BIT, DVI + HDMI + 3DP graphics card on a 10 year old motherboard (Gigabyte P55-USB3) in order to update the hackintosh to 10.14 Mojave and 10.15 Catalina because the card that I have used in past years, Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 1GB, has stopped working after 10.13.6 High Sierra since this was the last version for which Nvidia published the alternate web drivers that were necessary for the card to work well with graphic acceleration.

      The new RX 580 card needs considerably more space than the old one although it fits perfectly in an ATX case, and requires an additional power connector. It has 2 big fans that most of the time are stopped, at least in my case. In macOS it works perfectly, even with Metal acceleration, without additional drivers and without extra settings in Clover. But it has drawbacks that I comment below.

      Alterations during startup

      During the boot of the operating system, when the screen goes from the basic driver to the AMD driver, 2 artifacts appear randomly, they are very short in duration (from one to a few seconds):
      Very short flashing white screen that may or may not be accompanied by purple lines The fans runs for a few seconds (the noise is clearly audible). This behavior is solved with the installation of 2 kexts, Lilu and WhateverGreen. Lilu is an extension created by acidantheraand vit9696 among others whose function is to help to patch kexts, processes and libraries during macOS boot. It is accompanied by specific plugins for the task required, for example WhateverGreen that injects necessary patches for certain AMD, Intel and Nvidia graphics cards. It is mandatory to have both extensions together, one of them separately does not correct the problem.
      I have installed Lilu 1.4.4 and WhateverGreen 1.3.9 in the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other folder of the EFI partition and artifacts have disappeared. Remember that these 2 extensions are not necessary for the card to work properly, if you tolerate those very brief distortions of the screen or the noise of the fans running for a few seconds, you can live without Lilu and WhateverGreen.

      Note: authors recommend that when using Lilu and WhateverGreen with Radeon cards, NO graphic settings have to be added to Clover (Inject ATI, etc.).

      Note: these alterations, especially the brief white screen and less frequently purple lines and fan noise, are also seen in Windows and some real Macs with the same card.

      Alteration during macOS installation

      Boot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from Install macOS Catalina > screen works fine
      Boot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from MacintoshHD > black screen
      Booting from USB > Clover menu > Boot macOS from MacintoshHD > screen works fine.

      In the first and third stages, screen works fine. In the second stage the screen goes black although the installation continues. The user has nothing to do at this moment so you can leave the PC working until the Clover menu is shown again, the screen is recovered, the initial account options can be configured and you can enter into the newly installed system with correct resolution and acceleration.
      This behavior is not corrected even by placing Lilu and WhateverGreen into the USB device. At least in my case I have not found a solution for it. Yo can install macOS perfectly with that drawback of not seeing how it progresses during the second phase of the installation.

      Only 2 connectors of the 5 available work

      This card has 3 Display Port (DP) ports, 1 HDMI port and 1 DVI port. In my case, only 2 DP work, those that are further from the HDMI connector. It is enough if you use a single monitor or 2 monitors that can be connected by DP. But if you want to have 3 or more connected devices or some of them only have HDMI, it is necessary to enable the 5 connectors or at least 4 of them since the DVI is obsolete and does not allow resolutions as high as DP and HDMI.
      User foxbox has proposed a solution in a thread titled [Solved] Sapphire RX 580 Nitro + SE | black screen on HDMI and DVI. Must inject from Clover a modification to the Orinoco framebuffer (which is used in the RX 580 card) so that the 5 connectors lack a fixedly assigned address and, instead, receive it dynamically. This change is made from the KextsToPatch section of Clover. Read the post from foxbox.
      This has to be accompanied by 3 changes in the Graphics section of Clover: Orinoco in FB Name / Inject ATI / 5 in Video Ports. I have tested this solution in macOS Catalina and it effectively enables the 5 ports of the card but, since I only use 1 monitor, I have removed it and I am with Lilu and WhateverGreen.

      Hello there!
       
      TL:DR; I built a Hackintosh system using the OpenCore Vanilla Desktop Guide (running Catalina 10.15.4) and I use an AMD Ryzen 1600 CPU and Radeon RX 5700 XT GPU. All works well except my displays are very blurry and it feels like I’ll get a headache if I try to look at the screen for very long. The picture quality is noticeably worse than Windows or Linux. What can I do to fix it?
       
      --
       
      Let me start off by saying that this is my first hackintosh build. I based my build on the Opencore Vanilla Desktop Guide at https://khronokernel-2.gitbook.io/opencore-vanilla-desktop-guide/. I’m running macOS Catalina 10.15.4.
       
      So I finished installing macOS after slowly and carefully taking about 8-10 hours to go through the guide yesterday and make sure I did everything properly. It paid off - it has been solid as a rock. However, there is one problem that is currently bugging me to no end - my displays are very blurry. This seems to be independent of any application or display resolution. My dock icons are blurry, the system text is blurry, app text is blurry (like in Slack, Safari, Notes, etc). This does not occur in Linux or Windows when using the same screens. 
       
      Also, as a test, I hooked up my girlfriend’s MacBook Pro to the same two screens, and the monitors are crystal clear again, just like they usually are in Windows. This leads me to think that my EFI may be configured improperly or my system may be missing some software or a kext that enables the displays to show a sharp image. I attached my EFI folder and my config.plist file for reference. 
       
      EFI setup:
      ACPI: SSDT-EC-USBX-AMD.aml Drivers: ApfsDriverLoader.efi OpenRuntime.efi VBoxHfs.efi Kexts: AppleALC.kext AppleMCEReporterDisabler.kext Lilu.kext RealtekRTL8111.kext VirtualSMC.kext WhateverGreen.kext (version 1.3.8) My boot args are: "npci=0x2000 agdpmod=pikera keepsyms=1 debug=0x100 alcid=1"  
      System specs:
      Ryzen 5 1600, no overclock or anything special Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB RAM, 32GB total (2x16GB DDR4 dimms running at 2400MHz) XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT RAW II 8GB GPU (this is listed as a PCIe 4.0 GPU, could that cause issues since my motherboard is PCIe 3.0 only? Works great in Windows/Linux) ASUS Prime B350M-A motherboard Samsung PM961 256GB NVMe SSD  
      My monitors:
      Samsung U32J59x (32” @ 3840x2160) ASUS MX279 (27” @ 1920x1080) The blurry issue also occurs when I plug directly into my 58" Samsung 4K TV.  
      I’ve already tried these steps:
      Adjusting monitor “sharpness” settings, totally unbearable at “0” but still looks pretty bad even at “100” Trying a bunch of different resolutions in the “Display” preferences. On the 4k monitor, the only one that looks any better is the 1920x1080p option, but then I have far too little screen space left. Using SwitchResX, no different than using different resolutions in the regular Display preferences Using subpixel antialiasing in the terminal with no noticeable difference, even through reboots Turning on/off AMD FreeSync on my 4K monitor — if I turn on FreeSync, the display lags and stutters, and quality is not any better. Also tried turning on/off “game mode” but that had no difference. Tried switching DisplayPort version between 1.1 and 1.2 in monitor settings (on 4K monitor) Checking my BIOS settings, such as making sure CSM is off, against the OpenCore guide that I used to make sure everything was correct  
      Does anyone else have some other ideas that could help to correct this issue? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!
