I've got my OSX86 rig loaded up and working perfectly (except no mic in yet) with uphuck's v1.3 updated to 10.4.10 including the latest kernel and system.kext. I've run the computer through a series of real life tests for the way I work (FCS2 editing and dvd authoring), checked dmg reading, ethernet etc. and all is well. My specs are in my sig below. My problem is this: the About this Mac window shows my processor as unknown (however it does show the right speed at 2.67). When I click on 'more info' the processor shows as it's supposed to: an Intel Core 2 Quad, 1 processor, 4 cores etc. Is there a simple way to fix this in the About this Mac window without botching anything else up? Thanks!

The only way I've seen to get around it is to change the strings in a plist file somewhere (can't remember where though. lol). You'd explicitly say "Core 2 Quad 2.66GHz" or something, instead of it trying to read it. But then if you overclock it or something, it will still say what you put in there.

Thanks for the reply. I found it buried in "/System/Library/CoreServices/loginwindow.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/AboutThisMac.strings".

Yes, all has been working perfectly on my system for quite awhile now (knock on wood). I keep trying to mess things up by testing all of uphuck's new releases, but it seems he's making them with my system in mind. These are just some of the pickier loose ends that I wanted to clean up. Editing "aboutthismac.strings" only changes the text of what shows to equal what is really happening. Same thing with "localizable.strings" which allows one to clean up some of the text errors that may be showing in "system profiler".

Nothing at all wrong with JaS. I learned on his early installers all the way through 10.4.8. it's just that uphuck now includes most of the newer tweaks needed to make my system run. It's all on one DVD and can be chosen at installation rather than doing individual tweaks after installation. Uphuck's is just a quicker install...not necessarily better.

Moose - (tried to PM you - guess it;s not enabled)

 

I have a Bad Axe 2 coming in Fridaywith a 7300GT, C2D, SATA drives, etc.

 

Was considering still going with Jas, but I see you're having good luck with uphuck lately.

 

Any recommendations / things I should look out for?

Did you need to check any off any specific patches on the uphuck install?

 

My current hackintosh is running great, but time for an upgrade...

 

 

Thanks in advance. Looking forward to joining the bad axe club.
