I'm trying to install this on my Dell XPS M1330 but it stalls for about 30 minutes after it tells me to "Press enter or -v..." something like that... Please help. Thanks

 

 

Yea, I'm having the same stalling problem on my m1330 (something about IOAPCI or something right?) So, does it actually move forward after that 30 minutes or does it just stay?

Hi there

i Burned the iso .

 

As soon as the installation is about to start i get this errormessage:

 

"could not be installed The installer coud not validate the contents of the "adressbook" package..

 

i burned it 3 times and everytime there is another package which couldn't be validated.

 

I burned with 2x and 4x ..

 

are there any other options i need to check ?

"Track at once" or "disc at once" ???

Filesystem ?? Iso + Joilet ?? UDF ? Iso level 2????

session opened ? closed ?

Modbin kernal gave me panics whenever I used it, and I tried the other kernals as well with same results. Only kernal that has worked for me has been netkas 9.2.0 SS kernal.

 

Someone mentioned above that the natit in the folder is for ATI HD cards. I was able to add my x3100 natit and my sound drivers but I did not see them in the installer. My next guess is that they are just installed automaticly. Somehow I ended up with a bad burn though so I am burning again to see. I wish someone knew more about that command and could explain where the kext you add actually go. What if there is a kext on the disc already with the same name, what then?

 

The lingon workaround is really kinda sucky. People have been running OSX since 10.5.3 I believe. Hell I have been running it since 10.4.9 and I have never had a USB issue like that. As soon as I get this next install done I am going to try the system.kext fix for the USB problem. If you read about the problem its caused by the system version not matching the kernal. Like if you have system 9.2.0 and ran kernal 9.2.2 for example. Both must match. Yes AMD installs will always suck, because your two far away from what a real mac has. The closer you get to a real mac the better it works.

Took a look at the Readme in Add_kext_to_dvd, and it confirms that the additional kext is Natit for ATI HD cards.

 

I fixed most of my stability issues by using the v2 AMD kernel patch (instead of the v1 I tried originally.) The only apps I'm still having problems with are VLC and DVD player. VLC occasionally just freezes (but the audio keeps playing), and DVD Player says something like "Error referencing /options." This appears connected to a problem with the default AppleSMBIOS.kext file. I know the DVD offers several options...has anyone had any luck getting DVD Player to run with any of those kexts? Is there any way to test or install a different one without a complete reinstall?

I have done a few installs with kalyway 10.5.2 and added my kext which are added to the main system folder i found. They will not show up in the list at all. Just dont pick anything in that catagory that you added the kext for and it will install the one you added.

 

I have not had any problems with VLC ever. Your on AMD though and thats a totally different buckit of {censored}. LOL

 

I have almost got a good install going now to. 3 problems remain.

 

1. USB issues comes and goes. Even after matching system.kext. So I am going to have to use that lingon app after all it seems.

 

2. SMBios not deteching my bus speed right. I get 200mhz on all vanilla SMBios files and everything else detechs correctly. With any hacked SMBios i get 100mhz bus. It seems I need a custom SMBios or i'm stuck at 200mhz which is a system hit for sure.

 

3. Cant shutdown with Netkas 9.2.0 speedstep kernal. I guess that pretty common though. Gonna switch to his shutdown fix one and see if my CPU stays cool.

 

 

If anyone has a suggestion for fixing any of the above problems I'm all ears.

 

THANKS

Figured out how to install the different SMBIOS kexts. They're actually bundled as packages in /Volumes/Kalyway_10.5.2_Intel_AMD/System/Installation/Patches. I'll have to try a couple of different ones when I get home. Hopefully it won't hose up my install.As far as the SMBIOS not detecting your speed, I suspect it's just detecting the wrong speed, not forcing your bus speed to 100 Mhz. If it did force your bus speed to 100Mhz, wouldn't your CPU be going at half speed (or maybe much lower?) Does Xbench show any differences in memory speed when you're using one of the 100MHz SMBIOS files? I know it's nice to see correct info in System Profiler, but as long as it's working at the right speed, does it really matter?
How do you run a .command file on Windows? When I open it up in Notepad it seems to be unix commands, not windows..After I install is it still possible to add kexts?
.command files are OS X shell scripts with Macintosh specific commands. It will not run on Windows, or even Linux. Yes, it is possible to install Natit after installation, but if your fresh install freezes up or kernel panics, you'll have to boot in safe mode, then install the updated Natit. However you shouldn't need the new Natit unless you've got an ATI Radeon HD 2x00.

It's not possible to run a .command file on Windows. It contains OS X commands that won't run on Windows, or even Linux. However, you don't need to run it unless you have a recent ATI card (HD 2x00 or HD 38x0.)

I thought his speedstep kernal was also his shut down one? If you remove the AppleHDA.kext, are you able to shutdown properly then? Taruga/AppleHDA.kext often kills shutdown.

SMBIOS swapping will not hose your system. Only thing is it affects other apps & performance within OSX and stuff but should not kill your install. Dont worry.

 

 

Well good point about the bus speed & I have thought about that. I tried xbench & it does not tell bus speed, ram runs at 667. Geekbench does show bus speed though. In geekbench it shows 200mhz. So then i figured it was just taking the data from smbios. I cant be sure thats right though. So I figured I would do a test and see what another laptop with similar specs would get in geekbench. Another guy with a C2D 1.66Ghz machine with GMA950 video and 2gb of ram got a 1751 score. Hes got a lower CPU and video. The best I can do with x3100 graphics and a 1.8ghz C2D and 2GB ram is 1660. So there is a hit to performance. Not much of one but its a hit. What do you guys think? Am I nuts? I plan to run the test in windows next and see what those results are as that would be definitive.

Son of a {censored} your right. Thats what it is. Shoot how do I deal with this? I need AppleHDA for sound. Also your right it was a sleep kernal (not shutdown one, which i could care less about). The sleep kernal also panics on me so I'm back to the speedstep kernal as its the best for me if that damn speedstep app would load every time. I have tried everything to get that thing to load at every startup and it still does not. Any ideas?

 

THANKS ALL

thank you very much for the nice release! after I add the right kexts files for my hardware my Mac running 100% (all I want to test is the Toast 9.0.2) :D

 

Hi Thanx to Da Man and all testers for dis release!. Only thing is dis release has been out awhile now and i'm still not finding it on da newzgroups?- Can someone do the honors?Thanx in advance

 

if you want adding drivers support to dvd boot you must put the Kalyway_10.5.2_DVD_Intel_Amd folder on your desktop then put kexts you want add to dvd extensions in the ADD_KEXT_TO_DVD folder (you can find natit for ati hd in this folder) and run Add_kext_to_dvd_boot.command !!!

It cannot associate the command file to anything.

I double clicked it and it said it could not recognise the file type..

 

 

can you till me what are you doing (steps)?

well, i copied a device ID in appleVIAATA.kext from a real mac from a friend of mine (who has just left town) and i have put the kext in the folder with the command file

 

I double clicked the command file and it said it could not associate the app to anything. I put windows to search the web but it could not find an app to run it

here is the steps:

 

1. you must put the Kalyway_10.5.2_DVD_Intel_Amd folder on your desktop.

2. then put kexts you want add to dvd extensions in the ADD_KEXT_TO_DVD folder

3. then double clicked the command file

4. Type your password

5. wait until it will finish

6. burn the DVD (I used Nero 8 to burn the DVD with speed of 6x)

7. reboot and install Leopard.... :)

3. then double clicked the command file ---- WINDOWS CANNOT OPEN THIS FILE. TO OPEN THIS FILE, WINDOWS NEEDS TO KNOW WHAT PROGRAM CREATED IT

 

Windows does not recognise Add_kext_to_dvd_boot.command

 

 

here is your problem :(

this command for Mac not for windows you need to do this steps in Leopard or Tiger

Can you email them to me please? Thanks!!

 

You're DA MAN.

 

 

Thank you, I just got on irc for the first time in my life and got the kernels :P

 

edit: Just want to say that with the 9.2 sleep kernel has finally fixed my sleep. It go to sleep in about 6-7 seconds and wakes up within 2-3 seconds. Restart and Shutdown works good too.

 

THANK YOU KALYWAY AND EVERYONE ELSE WHO MADE THOSE KERNELS :(

 

If anyone wants these kernels, let me know and I'll email it to you.
