open your message box and check the contents, I am in doubt about the result.

 

Edit:

 

thanks for the information and testing, as well as your feedback, :)

a small intervention in the source code with a big impact.

Thanks for such an excellent new kernel which is working for Yosemite 10.10.5 with AMD CPU Athlon 64 x2 6000+ in Asus M4A78 Plus MB.

However both V2 and V3 versions are not working for Yosemite 10.10.5 with AMD CPU Phenom 9850 in Asus M3A MB, in which only 10.10.5R1 works.

During booting by V2 or V3 kernel always very fast showing opcode errors with instant reboot, I could not catch its error message by computer.

Thank you for your kernel. Installed Mac OS X on the Phenom, Athlon without SSSE3. OS X: 10.10.5. All working. Thanks again!

I apologize for my English, because I live in Belarus, and then the main language is Russian.

Which version of 10.10.5 kernel are you using ?

kernel of y2k4u "10105R1" or  Spakk's 10.10.5_SSEPlus V2 ?

My AMD Phenom 9850 in Asus M3A MB only works with kernel of y2k4u "10105R1".

Maybe try to use patched pthread.kext uploaded by Tora Chi Yo. ==> 10102-UPD-Patch-pthread.kext.zip

Also you can read this post: #1077, here Tora Chi Yo explaining about occuring the opcode error. I hope it will be useful for you.

No, your CPU is supported by the kernel !!
How to install:
1. Starting with a clean install, do not change as much as possible in  S/L/E (this experience we have made in recent weeks !!) AMD Radeon and NVIDIA graphics cards---> to remove the two problematic Extensions from S/L/E: AppleTyMCEDriver.kext and AppleUpstreamUserClient.kext (repair disk permissions in S/L/E )
2. Install the Chipset-, Nullpowermanagement.kext, Keyboard -and Mouse drivers etc.  in the folder Extra/Extensions.  (I use an additional a custom DSDT.aml and a rom-file for my nvidia Graphics card)
3. install Bootloader
4. for FX-CPUs: when system fails to boot, then install the packet of Carlo_67
but there are also different statements with package Contents. for some making problems for the other works very well .... for X4 CPUs ...? I do not know, but Should be similar to my Phenom II X6 CPU ....

..... for Nvidia graphics cards, install the Nvidia Web drivers or Cuda, if they are supported.

....if the system during the boot process ends in a black screen, then fix the problems by patching the AppleGraphicsControl.kext with the smbios.plist that you use, see the instruction from pikeralpha

 

here a picture from the contents of my Extra folder and my boot-file

about the sense/nonsense of some entries in my bootfile - not bothered by it., but my system work well

.... according to this principle, I have a lot of systems (more then > 20) successfully installed.

I hope that this information will help them further.

Thanks, but this patched pthread.kext does not work for AMD CPU Phenom 9850 with V2 or V3 kernel at 10.10.5.

Up to now only 10.10.5R1 kernel working for me at 10.10.5

install 10.10.5 as described on a free partition, then your system will work with the new kernel.

I have sort of an odd predicament that I can't seem to figure out. I've narrowed it down to issues between the kernel and NVIDIA Web Drivers. Sometimes (and it's very unpredictable), I'll have a "bad boot" and have some serious issues with mainly Finder and Safari hanging the system while loading. I have checked the console and I see the GPU restart every time this happens. I am currently running 10.10.5 (14F1021) with the v3 kernel linked a few pages back. My processor is an AMD A10 - 7850K. I have an EVGA GTX 960 ti with the latest version of the NVIDIA Web Drivers. This is a clean install with only NullCPUPowerManagement and FakeSMC installed. I primarily run Clover in UEFI as my boot loader, but this also happens with Enoch. I had zero problems on 10.10.4; these are unique to 10.10.5 and had the same issues before and after the security update. Also, they don't happen on every boot.
 
Sometimes, regardless of whether or not I have changed anything (and I usually haven't), it will boot up perfectly. Everything will run smooth as butter as it should. And at other random times, it will simply have a bad boot with these issues. If it was very intermittently and could knowingly be fixed by just one reboot, then I wouldn't worry about it, but sometimes I'll have to reboot 2 or 3 times for it to be fine.
 
I have attached a screenshot of my console and the actual GPURestart log. I should also add that I've tried about 2 or 3 different kernels (I think all three versions of the 10.10.5 kernel on this thread) and I have faced the same issues.

we can not discuss these Problimatic here, because we come now off topic.

--> Nvidia graphics card problems-> delete the two Problematic drivers and patch the AppleGraphicsControl.kext, repair the disk permissions.

install the Web drivers and use a modified DSDT.

 

... or open a new page in which we discuss specially your problem, AMD A10 is something special.

Apple makes it very exciting this year with the publication of xnu source for El Capitan..... Last year has apple published the source for Yosemite on 29/30. Oct. and now, today we have the 31.10. and we do not have the source. :(

Do they have to put it by law or they don't have to?

It is required by it's license if I'm correct.

Thanks.

Unfortunately after clean install 10.10.5 (14F27) on a free partition I still got the same opcode error during booting with your V2 or V3 kernel.

However there is no such a problem for another AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ CPU in Asus M4A78 Plus MB.

It is related to different AMD CPUS' behavior or just imcompatible to Phenom X4 9850 CPU only (?).

So I use 110.10.5R1 kernel now which works for Phenom X4 9850 CPU.

 

TheRealGudv!n:

I'm still waiting for answer from TheRealGudv!n :

Which version of 10.10.5 kernel are you using ?

kernel of y2k4u "10105R1" or  Spakk's 10.10.5_SSEPlus V2 ?

My AMD Phenom 9850 in Asus M3A MB only works with kernel of y2k4u "10105R1".

test this kernel, maybe this kernel will work with your CPU, then report us

(build on basis of Andy Vandijck's kernel, with recent changes)

 

Edit:

kernel works well with my cpu.

 

Edit:

If you have taken previously a different kernel for example "10105R1", then please test the kernel on a second partition. it may be possible, that the kernel requires a clean install (unchanged S/L/E)  I do not know.

Has anybody tested the kernel with an AMD Phenom X4 (9850) or with an AMD Athlon 64 X2, please report

You mean the old_v3 (post #1691) or v3 (post #1670) ?

 

I'm currently running the v3 flawlessly on an AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ (rig in my sig) :).

OK, that's what I thought.

 

Since my system runs fine, I don't really want to try this one which implies to modify the System folder more or less… The v3 allows me to have a near vanilla OS X.

 

Sorry guys, but I'll pass this time ;).

"JSL" and "Iupkraine" have problems to boot their system with "10.10.5_SSEPlus_V3" and I was hoping that the new kernel, will be boot their system.

I already boot with these

but according to your picture what you have posted, is only: kext-dev-mode=1 npci=0x2000
It's me to renew to the kernel cache, so that the new kernel can work
 
Edit:
then I'll searching for the mistake in my source and will build a new one.
