For green icon , maybe problem AVX . 

In sysctl see:

machdep.cpu.xsave.extended_state: 7 832 960 1073741824 <<--- on intel and old's cpus amd writes how :7 832 832 0

machdep.cpu.xsave.extended_state1: 0 0 0 0 <<- 1 0 0 0 

 

Maybe this problem ?

Maybe this problem ? 

 

Strange I don't have any machdep.cpu.xsave strings... Is it just an FX feature?

Bronya has already asked him about the kernel symbols error and Y2k4uk wants give no information and Nobody will run after him and beg for this information!. ^_^

All kernel programmers help us repeatedly for many years, to resolve the problems on OS X and that without having to get any Cents for her very good Job !!
I am thinking particular to the following: Bronya, Andy Vandijk, Sinitek and Tora Chi Yo, and if Y2k4uk not like want to do, then that's his cause, and I would not like to further talk about it......

 

I don't care if Y2k4u wants to help or not, i'm not taking sides in any dispute here,you have to understand that.I just reported a thing which i thought was relevant with your current work on the kernel and asked to review your work in case you missed something.

 

 

@Bronya, yes vanilla System.kext prelinks and loads with your latest kernel as all the other kexts i have no error on building kextcache now :) but...

 

When i press play on VMware i'm getting this

and when i hit ok this

2016_01_25_8_56_19.png

 

That's what i meant, i'm not taking any symbol error on loading or in terminal the error is inside the application ;)

so, now I have rebuilt the kernel and adjusted of all possible errors, someone has loss to test this kernel? and to let me know shortly. thx

 

Edit:

I have just started my system with the kernel, kernel works and can be used

 

Edit

test possible with all CPUs and write your results .... then we can adapt. On my system, I note no problems, all programs operate reliably as before. The graphics are just as good as before.

With graphics still everything is bad :(  :wallbash:

@Magomedov_05_RUS

That is, the recent green glitchy unchanged with FX CPUs? or are the graphics issues differently as previously? it would be good if you could post a picture.

 @y2k4u, Kernel does not work with my CPU, but very good that you have found a way to build the kernel.  :thumbsup_anim: 

I am getting these errors even with the kernel you provided yesterday. Was this a kext issue?

Not yet. Just saw it. will test it later and report back. Did notice however some of the kexts I had were quite old. Which baffled me, but w/e I updated those and edited some boot flags in chameleon bootlist.should hopefully at least boot now.

Can you try this file then please. Make a backup of the original. It is located in /usr/lib/system/

 

libsystem_kernel.dylib.zip

 

Note: Only people that still have graphical errors with the kernel I posted try this.

      So I recently updated to 10.15.6. Whenever I boot now, it boots into 1080p max resolution on my 4K monitor via DisplayPort. It was working fine before!
       
      Weird think is that when I disconnect the cable, reconnect it and then set it to 4K in display settings, it works again. But that means I have to disconnect and reconnect my DP cable every time I boot.
       
      Latest Clover and kexts like Lilu...
      - Sapphire Radeon HD7950
      - MSi Z87-G43
      - Intel Core i5 4670k
      - 27 inch 4k Monitor via DP
       
      How do I solve this?
    • By Funky frank
      Hi,
       
      I am planning to make my hack ready for post High Sierra macos, finally xD  So I was looking for a proper AMD GPU, but it is not that easy to find a proper, recent guide for that. So compared a bunch of AMD GPUs, and this one seems to suit my needs the most: XFX RX 5500 XT Thicc II Pro 8GB
       
      Will this graphics card work properly in macos? And what macos version is the minimum here? I read so many contradictory statements, some older said that the RX5xxx support in macos still sucks and is much slower than in Windows. Is this still true? I currently have a nvidia GT1050, I guess it still will beat that nvidia card?
       
      Would this work with old but gold clover (recent version) + lilu and whatevergreen, or should I switch to OpenCore then?
       
      Thanks for info!

      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.
