Mac OS X 10.4.8 – story continued

posted in mac os x |

After dealing with my old 10.4.6 install with the “fake” 10.4.8 update which didn’t have the new 8.8.1 kernel I decided to make a complete new install.

Got the JaS.10.4.8.AMD.Intel.SSE2.SSE3 – DVD and gave it a try. Right after installation I got massive Kernel panics about the Geforce.kext family. Tried to use the old ones from the backup directory, but didn’t have much success.

After that I found the JaS.10.4.8.AMD.Intel.SSe2.SSe3.v1p ppf – patch for my ISO. This time they added Titan drivers instead of Natit. Applied it and burned that disc. First installation stuck on the language selection screen. On the second try i got massive usb driver error warnings but it worked. On the first reboot after the installation i got a black screen but I heard the harddrives were still rumbling, so it was again some graphics driver problem. Rebooted with “Graphics Mode”=”1280x1024x32@60” and it worked, BUT the image was upside-down. I dismounted my monitor and turned it upside-down 😀

After searching in a few forums and looking for help on macspeak network i decided to play with the boot options. I was able to get a 90 deg rotated display by starting with “Graphics Mode”=”1200x1920x32”. And as if I knew that its all my fault I just started with “Graphics Mode”=”1920×1200” (without bitdepth or refreshrate) and it worked like charm. CI (Core Image) and QE (Quartz Extreme) seem to work. I can play DVD’s and OpenGL stuff now.

The nforce4 SATA support still isn’t implemented. I tried some mods for the AppleVIAATA.kext but no success yet, just a few system crashes.

The only unsolved problem for me are these random crashes after like 30 mins usual working. Maybe its iTunes or Safari flash bug, no clue.

Update: the random system crashes are gone, but i still don’t know what caused em. The only crashing applications so far were Qumana and the apple’s Preview.

Next Update: you can easily make Qumana crash by just not assigning the blog post to a category. Well, if the glas is half filled, you could see it as a painful reminder and call it a “feature”.

    There’s a new version of Qumana available that should work with your 10.4.8,

    We finally solved the issue about three weeks ago. If you want to try the new version, it’s available at the Qumana.com site.

    well, im using version 3.0.0 and its crashing a lot. i can’t see any further updates on your website right now. maybe opening it with rosetta might help. so far i’ve been pressing the “save” button after every sentence, so i won’t have to write it all again after a crash.

    This blog is rad. Thanks for the OSX related stuff. I’m trying it now on my other machine. I need final cut but can’t afford a G5 or Apple Pro.

    Anyway, I’ve got an nForce4 with SATA, have you heard if it’s possible to get OSX working on this or am I doomed to fail?

    Thanks again for the site.
    Rick.

    So I actually got into OSX. For some reason I have to start with the JaS iso in the drive, hit F8 when prompted and then type “rd=disk0s1 -v” at the Darwin comand line. I have no idea why, but without the disc in it doesn’t work.

    Now I’m trying to get my ATI 800XL to display in a res higher than 1024×768 but I have no idea how I edit boot options like you did.

    Just thought I’d write back here for anyone that cares.

    Rick.
