Hey I installed several of the Mac OS X distros (like JaS 10.4.8 updated to 10.4.9, kalyway 10.4.10 & 10.5 (build 9a527), xxx 10.4.10)


I can get the all sistems running (except the kaly leopart 9a527) but after mac runs i can't install CS3, iWork 08, iLife 08, vmware Fusion, M$ Office 2004.


I relly don't understand why it works for the majority but not for me... It's been a week of installing formating and reinstalling other distros but no succes... can someone plz help?


i got back to M$ Vista now cuz i can't to anything in MAC OS X...


My System:

Intel P4 2.8Ghz

Asus P5GD1-VM

ATI X550 (when using mac have integrated Intel GMA 900)



I'll apreciate some help whit this strange problem...

The lowest version I'd go is 10.4.7 or possibly 10.4.6 if I was really desperate. 10.4.2 and 10.4.3 are unusable, its well known.


Plus, why would it matter if the CPU supports SSE2 or SSE3? If you have Mac OS X successfully working, the applications you run won't depend on your SSE#.

Looks like it is working but the Xbench test won't confirm that QE/CI is working. Open System Profiler, click on the Graphics/Displays option from the left and see what it says next to Core Image, Quartz Extreme, and Rotation.
