  1. I haven't had the freezing error (nvda channel exception) since reverting to a DSDT that doesn't have speedstep or the lpc fix enabled. Is it possible that the state values posted by mm67 for my q9550 were incorrect? Or could the problem have something to do with the lpc fix? Seems like it has to be one of the two. This is what I was using: Scope (_PR) { Processor (CPU0, 0x00, 0x00000410, 0x06) { Alias (PSS, _PSS) Alias (CST, _CST) } Processor (CPU1, 0x01, 0x00000410, 0x06) { Alias (PSS, _PSS) Alias (CST, _CST) } Processor (CPU2, 0x02, 0x00000410, 0x06) { Alias (PSS, _PSS) Alias (CST, _CST) } Processor (CPU3, 0x03, 0x00000410, 0x06) { Alias (PSS, _PSS) Alias (CST, _CST) } Method (PSS, 0, NotSerialized) { Return (Package (0x06) { Package (0x06){Zero,Zero,0x0A,0x0A,0x4820,0x4820}, Package (0x06){Zero,Zero,0x0A,0x0A,0x081E,0x081E}, Package (0x06){Zero,Zero,0x0A,0x0A,0x471C,0x471C}, Package (0x06){Zero,Zero,0x0A,0x0A,0x071A,0x071A}, Package (0x06){Zero,Zero,0x0A,0x0A,0x4618,0x4618}, Package (0x06){Zero,Zero,0x0A,0x0A,0x0616,0x0616} }) } Method (CST, 0, NotSerialized) { Return (Package (0x04) { 0x3, Package (0x4){ResourceTemplate (){Register (FFixedHW,0x01,0x02,0x000,,)},One,One,0x3E8}, Package (0x4){ResourceTemplate (){Register (FFixedHW,0x01,0x02,0x010,,)},0x2,One,0x1F4}, Package (0x4){ResourceTemplate (){Register (FFixedHW,0x01,0x02,0x030,,)},0x4,0x96,0x64} }) } }
  2. I added realtek1000sl.kext and ionetworking.kext and ethernet is working now.
  3. I was actually getting this same exact error! The reason was that I had another Chameleon USB stick plugged in and it was affecting the order of the drives. It thought it was trying to boot my OSX drive but in reality it wasn't, so it couldn't find the kernel (because it was booting from another drive). As soon as I took out the second Chameleon stick, it started working fine. I know it was booting from the right stick because I purposely put different themes on them.
  4. Hi Spike, Nope I actually ran the dmg from nvidia's site. This is the exact file: http://www.nvidia.com/object/GeForce_MacOSX_18.5.2f16.html I started getting this error once I enabled Speedstepping in my DSDT. I'm now running an older DSDT without the processor stepping states and without an LPC fix, which was required to get speedstepping working. Haven't had any issues yet, but I've only been running for about 4 hours now. I'll post results as more time passes, hopefully without further crashes! Edit: Meant to say I ran the .mpkg file on the dmg.
  5. Hi afd_sg, Thanks. I can certainly try this out, but I never had this problem with my old DSDT. I started seeing the problem after adding speedstep values and the LPC fix to my DSDT, even before switching to Aargh's DSDT. I'm trying to think if there's anything else I added in the process that could be causing this. I've deleted VoodooPState.kext, CPUi.kext, CPUInjector.kext, and OpenHaltRestart.kext. Any other ideas?
  6. Apologies for re-surfacing an old thread, but I am getting the same exact error. I cannot install the driver that you recommended as it says "No Driver Update Needed. This system already has drivers which support this NVIDIA graphics solution". I'm curious if you ever ran into the issue again? I'm running 10.6.2.
  7. Hi All, Just got the NVDA error again. Freezes my entire system. Whole screen flickers for a second and everything locks up except my mouse, which can still move. The OS is entirely unresponsive, force quit doesn't work, nothing works. It's just totally frozen, only option is to do a hard reboot. This is the last thing that appears in the console: 2/8/10 7:29:09 PM kernel NVDA(OpenGL): Channel exception! exception type = 0xd = GR: SW Notify Error This started happening when I added my mm67's PStates to my DSDT and also added the LPC fix. Since then I've upgraded my whole DSDT to Aargh-A-Knot's cleaner version, with the modified PStates that mm67 posted for my processor. It's obviously somehow related to my graphics card, but I had never seen this until I added the PStates and LPC fix. I should point out that Speedstepping does seem to be working great. Processor is changing based on load and the temperature is significantly lower (idles at 38 degrees vs 51 without speedstepping). Kexts I'm using are: fakesmc IONetworkingFamily IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector LegacyHDA RealtekR1000SL
  8. Perfect, that's working. Thank you!
  9. Ben, I've never tried the Lifehacker bootloader, but if it's based on Chameleon 2 RC2 or above, all you have to do is add the following lines to your com.apple.boot.plist <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> If that still doesn't work, check your DSDT PCI root. I had to change mine from 1 to 0 to get GraphicsEnabler to work. Search your DSDT for something that looks like this: Device (PCI0) // PCI Bus { Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A03")) Name (_ADR, Zero) Name (_UID, Zero) You want to change the UID value to the opposite of what it currently is, either 1 or 0 (in the above case it is set to 0).
  10. I can't seem to find a IONetworkingFamily kext for Snow Leopard. Tried uninstalling the driver and running with RealtekR1000SL but ethernet doesn't work at all now (64 bit and 32 bit). Do you have a link? Thanks again for your help, appreciate it.
  11. Yep, I read up on that. Apologies for the poor choice of words. Didn't mean to say it was being detected "wrong", I should have said that it's detecting a different UUID from what I've been using. As you probably know, the motherboard has two ethernet devices. I disabled one and have been using the other, so I suspect the new bootloader was automatically detecting my disabled one. Do you happen to know how to tell it to detect the other device? Interesting about the kexts, hadn't seen those before. Will give them a try, thanks!
  12. Looks like ethernet works only if I boot in 32 bit mode. Could this be related to the Realtek RTL8111/RTL8168 driver I'm using? From here http://www.realtek.com.tw/DOWNLOADS/DOWNLOADSVIEW.ASPX?LANGID=1&PNID=13&PFID=5&LEVEL=5&CONN=4&DOWNTYPEID=3&GETDOWN=FALSE
  13. Ethernet works if I boot in 32 bit mode. Hmm, I wonder if this is related to the Realtek RTL8111/RTL8168 driver I have installed? Got it here: http://www.realtek.com.tw/DOWNLOADS/DOWNLOADSVIEW.ASPX?LANGID=1&PNID=13&PFID=5&LEVEL=5&CONN=4&DOWNTYPEID=3&GETDOWN=FALSE
  14. I just switched over to AsereBLN Booter v1.1.7 from Chameleon 2 RC3 and my ethernet is no longer working. DSDT is the same, no changes. I have ethernetbuiltin=Yes and also tried using my old PlatformUUID.kext with system-id=No. Any ideas?
