I noticed that you modified the background for the installation mode. How long did it take you to make that background, just a question of thoughts, looks nice. @Eddie11c, when you are planning disable verbose mode as the default load? Will it be in your next release or when? I don't see any errors in my system thats why, so I was just asking if I can go back into the clean white background mode, graphics mode. Please let me know. Thank you so much. =))

To know if your copy is patched verify your MD5 Checksum with the one eddie11c provided on the first page of this forum. -s is supposed to be typed for the bootup mode. The rest of the commands to disable video is line after line so you type the first line, then ENTER, second line, ENTER, etc (so on and so forth). Hope this helped. - Cheers.

Sorry for the noob question but after you type -s do you write this altogether in one line?(there's no enter button to go down?? :o )Also I didn't exactly install the video cards.... if that mattersP.S. How do you know if your copy is patched?

The system is setup by default to boot in Verbose mode. You can change this yourself if you want in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist. Eddie included BBEdit with the applications, it can edit the file in place with correct permissions.

 

What do I substitute to make Leopard boot into regular mode (nonverbose)? Never tried this. Thanks.

Run Verify Disk after the install and see if you get an Invalid Extent Entry.

The fix is to boot from another disk and run Repair Disk.

ok so i still am having the video loop even after i did what the wiki said under the loop (i entered the commands). i just don't know how to disable the network card. any help would be great as the wiki doesn't explain.

 

and i don't have the option in bios. there has to be another way of doing it.

 

Ok if you did the commands in the wiki to set up a password and your still getting the loop you did it wrong try again. By setting up this password you create an account called root, so the installer will skip the rest. An alternate method that works for some is booting at Darwin with "graphics mode"="800x600x32" the lower resolution is also suppose to make it skip it. I have not tested the 2nd method.

 

Sorry to keep on asking questions but howcome the last command

./RemoveVideo

This script is only installed with a patched version of the DVD. It will install when you load Leopard on the drive. If you need to do it manually do this.(this example is for Nvidia based cards, for ATI replace NVD* with ATI* and substitute Natit.kext for NVinject.kext.

/sbin/fsck -fy
/sbin/mount -uw /
rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/NVD*
rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/NVinject.kext

Also I will attach the script. Just copy it to the root of the Leopard drive. You can do this with Macdrive or Transmac in Windows.

If you knew how many PM's i get about stupid stuff over and over, you would understand the reason for having it in Verbose mode. You can edit com.apple.Boot.plist and remove the

Hello. Installed Leo4All, boots, no video problems (it seems), BUT - after displaying the "flying welcomes" movie, it asks for mouse and keyboard, saying it doesn't detect any. I have an USB mouse, and it detects that. The problem is that it doesn't want to detect the keyboard. It searches for it over and over again and it doesn't let me go through with the account creation (which I suspect is the following thing that I should do).

 

This happens on my HP 6720s notebook (core 2 duo 1.6, intel gma x3100, sata hdd, sata dvdrw). Any ideas?

Im having a wierd issue w/ the PPF Pached version (Yes I pached it correctly, or so PPF-o-Matic said =)

 

Issue is that when I first booted I got a kernel panic on the vid card kexts. A quick edit of the Info.plists replacing the hardware ID's w/ the one for my 8500GT got it to boot up just fine, and in hi-res.

 

Here is where it gets strange, for some reason now Leo wont recognize my DVD/CDRW drive, and Profiler doesnt show anything but the Networking and Software sections. IE No CPU info, USB Info, Graphic Card/Display info etc. The sections are just not listed.

 

I downloaded an OpenGL tester and it reported the correct CPU, correct Graphics card, and even showed the complete list of res's i can set my display at, along with being able to test the OpenGL (500+ FPS is nice)

 

Xbench also kicks back a 166

 

Any one have any clue why these wierd things would happen?

Hi,

 

Im testing the L4A at the Acer 5220:

 

Celeron 540 (1,86)

gfx x3100

sound alc268

wlan bcm4311

 

install always with intel ichx_fixed_ioata..

 

 

updated L4A with the ppf

 

general: at boot from disk "Failed to load extension org.tgwbd.driver.ACPIPS2Nub" - at first boot from hdd its gone.

 

mach kernel: freeze at the registry information

 

vanilla kernel: wlan out of the box, cant change wrong resolution, no sleep (does nothing), shutdown working. After reboot no mouse + kb but an usb-mouse works (usb-kb not tested)

 

 

 

old L4A

 

general: always "Failed to load extension org.tgwbd.driver.ACPIPS2Nub" at booting from disk or hdd

 

mach kernel: gfx + resolution + wlan out of the box, shutdown working, no wake-up from sleep possible

 

vanilla kernel: gfx + resolution + wlan out of the box, sleep + shutdown working, after first reboot no mouse + kb (usb working)

Man! I've downloaded this twice off torrents and I keep getting different checksums and disk errors when I try to install. First release I've had this problem with. Any way you could upload some par files so I can make sure my rars are okay? I've been mixing and matching from my 2 downloads but I'm still not getting the same checksum.

Thats Odd, I havent had any errors. Then again, I didnt do a checksum of the iso after I downloaded it, just burned and went. Have you tryed buring the image at a slow speed, 1x or 2x maybe?

Also About This Mac Crashes When i clicked. I have intel E6750 cpu
Not sure what your problem is here, it installs the newest AppleSMBIOS, which works fine on everything I tested. You can try installing a different version to see if it fixes your problem.

I installed on a laptop here for testing and the keyboard/trackpad worked fine. Try disabling USB legacy in the BIOS if you have that option.

Dont download with Transmission if you did, it sucks for large files. Use uTorrent in Windows. Just copy all the files to your Windows drive and download on top of it. It will force a recheck and repair the RAR's that are bad.
How Can i enable quartz extreme. i have ati radeon 3850.
If you flip back a few pages I posted links to installers I made for some ATI cards. Confirmed working so give them a try.

I am unsure whats up with your profiler. I am typing from a fresh install and everything that should be in profiler is there. If when you edited the info.plist to fix your video card, maybe you edited the wrong file? or put something that is conflicting with other hardware? Try removing all the video kexts and see if you get the same profiler issues.
