TSorry, the CRIA sucks. The only place I know of right now won't work out for you. Hopefully someone will move it over to another tracker soon. If the RIA did that in the US, I would never buy another CD again. Support artists, not labels, buy direct if you can or buy it from a source that doesn't enforce DRM. I've bought a copy of In Rainbows recently directly from Radiohead. It was pay however much you think it's worth (some paid 0), but I paid about $8 because I believe that is what an album is worth and not the ridiculous prices you see at the store. The best part is the money goes directly to the band. The RIA and CRIA are dinosaurs, but they still have a lot of life left in them.

 

I know we´re getting a little out of the subject, but you started! :D

 

Couldn´t agree more with you. I bought the radiohead album too but I paid only $1 (what a cheap {censored}. lol). It´s an excellent album by the way...

 

And also, I think everyone who uses OSx86 releases and has benefits from it should consider donating a small amount (or big if you want) of money to the people who worked on them. It´s just like with the artists, if you like

what they have to offer, support them directly instead of paying a lot more money to whatever stands between you.

:D You are right of course, but the irony of paying to support piracy cracks me up for some reason. These people work hard on the releases so a donation is definitely a welcome gift. If you would like to make a donation to me, I only accept beer =) I should start a paypal like system that ships beer to people. Okay, way off topic.

 

Has anybody tried the DVD yet? I'm curious about the results. Maybe I'll give it a shot soon. It's time to update the GA-965P-DS3 how-to.

Planning to give the ToH DVD a try once it downloads from the demon on both my systems...will post results...I've heard decent success with this release on systems that were previously difficult to install on so it seems promising

Anyone got Adobe CS3 to run on Leopard? I replaced the AppleSMBIOS.kext with version 1.06 like I did in Tiger, but that doesn't work at all. All CS3 apps would crash on startup. Please advice, thanks.

Hey BebopBlues,

 

I saw you had an issue booting with a badaxe2 board. I think I am having a similar issue. What did you do to fix yours.

Mine also hangs after th firewire message.

 

Thanks!

Leopard is rock stable on my computer. The only thing that doesn't work is sleep. If you turn sleep off, then there's no reason the machine couldn't be used as an everyday machine.

I have a Compaq c714nr laptop and the TOH release stops at detecting my x3100 on start up. Leopard has x3100 support but for some reason the TOH release fails during detection. Anyone have any ideas why and what I can do to get it to work?

HI BebopBlues,

 

I'm using Adobe Master Collection with Leopard without a problem. Even update to the last version available.

I've used the kext for tiger. It seems to work very well with Leopard.

I got 3 questions:

 

Does bootcamp work on the PC with Leopard?

 

Also, has anyone successfully dual booted Vista and Leopard on their PC? If so, whats the easiest way to do it?

 

Also, anyone installed Leopard on a P5B-Deluxe yet? If so do you need any extra drivers or anything?

Have just installed Leopard on my ASUS F3JP use lastest BrazilMac patch . After fixed some typo in scripts & manual installed bootloader , everything went fine :P . Great work , BrazilMac ;).

 

I use MacDrive to copy post patch files to leopard partition from xp & use uphuck 1.4i to run post patch scripts and manual install bootloader .

 

@mawsoccer : i quad boot Vista , XP , Leopard , Ubuntu 7.10 on my F3JP .

The easiet way to do is use acronis os selector . You can install OS in any order . Make sure prepare your partition properly before install or you will encounter some boot problem .

 

In my system i use this layourt :

PRI 1 = Vista (NTFS)

PRI 2 = Leopard (use FAT32 then reformat it to HFS+ by install disc)

PRI 3 = XP (NTFS)

LOCAL1 = DATA1 (FAT32 = to easy tranfer file between OS)

LOCAL2 = DATA2 (NTFS = use for windows & file > 4GB)

LOCAL3 = Ubuntu (ext3 with grub install in it )

echo Replacing extensions...

for kext in `ls files/Extensions`; do

cpfix Extensions/$kext /Volumes/osx86dvd/System/Library/Extensions/

done

Extensions --> extensions

 

MSTRCDMNTD=/Volumes/osx86dvd/

MSTRCDMNTD=/Volumes/osx86dvd/ --> MSTRCDMNTD=/Volumes/osx86dvd

 

if mkisofs complain about "permission denied" or "command not found" then use

chown root:wheel mkisofs

chmod a+x mkisofs

 

IFS=$'\n' # important!

PATCH="/Users/XXX/Desktop/leopatch/" # path to the patched extensions

LEO="/Volumes/Leopard" # path to Leopard installation

PATCH="/Users/XXX/Desktop/leopatch/" --> PATCH="/Users/XXX/Desktop/leopatch"

 

You must edit all the path in each scripts according to your system .

Run scripts & watch the error message , you can see what is the problem ^^.

ToH does not require any patching, but it also does not install any hackintosh kexts. You will have to install kexts for any hardware that is not recognized.

@XcAbAr : It seems your path to patch files is incorrect or your patch files is missing .

 

Download lastest brazilmac patch (31-10) & unzip to /Users/Prince/Desktop/ .

In Desktop folder it must have 4 folders : __MACOSX , files , leopatch , resources & 2 .sh files .

After that replace "XXX" in 9a581-patch.sh file by "Prince " ( your user name in Tiger ) & fix some typo I described in previous post .

 

If you see "cp: /Volumes/osx86dvd/Install Mac OS X.app/Contents/Resources/minibless: No such file or directory" or something like that , it mean your path is incorrect or patch files is missing .

Hey, thanks for the reply. Question though, I don't see the _MACOSX folder anywhere. In the downloaded patch, I have all the other folders and it is the one from 10-31.

 

Ok, followed your instructions to the T with all files on the desktop and the sh files edited and i still get file not found...Don't know what to do anymore. I also noticed that after "patching", it's unable to umount the image and it also renames my Tiger partition to the name it's supposed to give the patched dvd before renaming it to Leo-patch.dmg....

 

Any thoughts?
