Kalyway 10.5.2 DVD Intel_Amd (sse2/sse3) EFI V8

Does anyone know if there are problems installing from a DVD-RW disc? AFAIK it shouldn't matter but I want to be sure.

 

Also, is there a specific kernel to use if one wants CPU voltage/frequency scaling support?

The Specs

D945GCL board

C2D E6600 Processor

x1800xt video card

2 gig ram

installed on a pata 80 gig I had kick'n around

 

 

The Install:

 

I downloaded Kalyway_10.5.2_DVD_Intel_Amd from the bay (thanks to all the seeders)

booted fine, tried GUID, vanilla, x1x00 natit and kext, netkass smbios, turned off all audio and network, apps...

 

I added my vid card id to the ATIRadeonX1000.kext works great.

 

For network and sound I downloaded and followed the instructions from here.

 

http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...amp;mode=linear

 

Thanks microphone! I also had some trouble with the audioinject.kext (I can't find or remember the exact name, (*#*$!)

 

I had a lot of trouble booting with out the DVD. I tried a lot of things, fdisk, startup, bless, always came back with some sort of error (thanks for the help folks). I finally reformatted as MBR and made sure the hard drive was named Leopard. It finally worked. I tried GUID, disk name Leopard... no boot and I tried MBR, disk name leo... no boot. I guess the DVD bless script expects certain things. I've reformatted and re-installed about 20 times trying to figure this one out.

 

Final install

format MBR HD name Leopard

turn off everything except vanilla kernel

ATI x1000 kext and natit

turn off all sound

turn off all network

left on the ata board drivers (no VIA, or NForce)

left on Netkass smbios, USB

turned off french keyboard

turned on Timemachine fix

 

boot

 

patched

ATI x1000 kext (repair permissions, flush cache, reboot)

network (follow instructions in readme, repair permissions by hand, flush cache, reboot)

install old AppleHDA.kext, deleted AppleAzalia.kext (and audioinject.kext), repair permissions, flush cache, reboot

 

Rock'n good. Thanks to all who spend their time figuring this stuff out. I'll try to do my small part.

Kaly,

 

Really sweet release.. installs very fast on my Asus P5LD2-VM.

 

Although I prefer your release over Leo4Allv3 (yours if faster, cleaner, etc), I get full system sleep on my hardware with Leo4All (vanilla kernel) and not with Kalyway 10.5.2 (vanilla kernel). What are the key components (kexts) that control system sleep? I have tried swapping, retrograding AppleACPIPlatform.kext and AppleAPIC.kext to no avail. I noticed that theLeo4All folks keep in extensions the AppleEFIHW.kext thing and you have removed it. It tried to put it back but it also made no difference.

 

Any thoughts? I love the system sleep I get with the Leo4All release but don't like the orange drive icons (what are you doing different there?)

 

Thanks for your hard work

Anyone else having permissions problems after this install? (Yes I repaired disk permissions via Disk Utility.) I created an alias and tried to rename it and get an error message, something about not having sufficient permissions. Searched this whole thread and didn't see that one come up. Help? Ideas?

I install just fine, but I can't seem to boot at all. So far I get a kernel panic with speedtestkernel, modbinkernel doesn't seem to work, and the sleepkernel has IOATA Error that keeps popping up. Either way I am having problems getting into the OS.. Also I have to boot with -x to boot off the DVD and be able to get anywhere past Choose Your Language screen.

modbinkernel is not for amd if you read kaly 's instruction properly - sleepkernel or speedstepkernel and mach_kernel as default

I did read them. This is what I see.

 

sleepkernel (intel/amd/sse2/sse3)

speedstepkernel (intel/amd/sse2/sse3)

nforcekernel (intel/sse3)

modbinkernel (intel/amd/sse3) Intel only?

vanillakernel (intel/sse3)

kabylkernel (intel/sse3) with sleep support

 

 

Edit - After some more tinkering I managed to get everything to work right. I guess all I needed was a nice long night of rest and try again.

Has anyone had troubles with the system hanging on large IO reads or writes? I don't know exactly what's causing it, maybe my system is just unstable. If anyone's 10.5.2 install hangs send me your specs so i can compare and maybe i can find what's making it hang. Much appreciated. For those that are interested, or would like to compare:

 

nforce 4 chipset - using MeDevil's kext (very nice, wonder if this is the problem?)

ECS n-force 570SLI-T motherboard

intel core 2 duo 2.4 GHz

4Gb RAM @ 667 dual channel

EVGA GeForce 7900 GS KO

DWA-556 extreme-n adapter (might be causing the hangs, happens a lot on downlaods, though detected as airport out of the box)

 

if you need anything else let me know, we'll compare

 

*EDIT*

Seems like adding the cpus=1 kernel at installation works, or well i installed it after the fact but it doesn't matter. No hangs now, but only one core...

I have got a dell 1520 I have installed Kalyway 10.5.1 on an USB external drive on the extended partition, as suggested, with a mbr system and the mbr install selected. The install went successfully, and it says ' restart your computer now' or something along those line. I reboot the system and now when I try to boot into mac, with my usb hard frive plugged in i get the message 'No Boot Sector on USB Drive' , the computer then goes to the next boot device (install CD), and if thats not in then onto vista

 

I installed with Vanilla kernel, and MBR option. Selected all the drivers I needed, so close to getting it to work!!!

 

Can anyone help me to fix my problem? Thanks

 

To let you know i'm installing it on a western digital passport usb drive, on a 9GB partition on that drive. format to a MAC OSX Journaled Extended partition

After trying Leo4all i'm trying kaly again as I heard it has better compatability with my laptop. Everything will work not like in leo4all. Anyway I can't get it to install. I have tried everything, a normal boot a boot with -v and boot with -x (safe mode) and with -f , but it always gets stuck at the same point, see picture

I have a problem with read/write ntfs partition. After installing Kaly 10.5.2 I cant use paragon ntfs nor macfuse. Both solutions worked fine with previous installation, it was Mac4All v.2. In many things Kaly 10.5.2 is better - 8800gt works with QE/CI enabled from start, before I use agrafuese string. But some problems still occured - for example my ide dvd works fine but sata dvd was recognized but not mounted discs. Then I replace AppleNforceATA.kext (medevil) with kext from Leo4all v.3 and now both burners works fine. There is still need for lingon solution for usb. And now the last problem with paragon ntfs. When I install it, I cant mount any of the ntfs partitions, and when try to verify and repair the disc there is error - resource busy. Then I uninstall paragon ntfs and everything is ok, but ntfs is "read only", of course. Anyone have idea?

lock ups on nforce chipsets are because of your 4gigs of ram. go down to two and that should fix the panics. I had the same issue, hence why i got rid of my 680i for an x38 intel
Kaly, in your next version please add support for Core 2 Quad CPUs & 8800GTS 512MB Graphic Cards.Thanks in advance,Panarchy
It does have support for these things, i dont see my yours isnt working if you selected the right options, which kernel did you use?

Hi kaly,

 

I like your work on leopard, I have installed your DVD10.5.1 and upload in 10.5.2 your release.

Everything work perfectly.

 

Last week I try to install your last release DVD10.5.2, everything work perfectly too, except Ilife'08, I have installation error. and I cannot install Ilife :s !!

 

I post a topic in the forum in french section and in application section to resolve my problem, but for the moment I have no solution.

 

 

My post is here :

I am also having problems with the DVD being required to boot. But I am having a hard time believing that all (or even most of the parameters) you have outlined have anything to do with the problem.

I solved my problem (needing to use the DVD to boot) by apparently reformatting my installation disk to MBR (I tweaked some other options in the Kalyway 10.5.2 menu, but again I really can not imagine those making much difference, essentially I used the defaults to make this work).
