Hello folks...


I'm new here, please be gentle ;)

first and foremost - great job across the entire OSX86 community, all work is greatly asppreciated by 1000's I'm sure!


Now..


My setup is : Gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6 Rev1, iatkos L1.

My quesiton really is the usage of "packs" and "patches".


I have not been involved with OSX for that long - but love the os.

what I am wanting to know is DSDT patching in general - what is it really designed to do? - i'm not what you would call an experianced developer / DSDT understander :? niether do i understand the basics of it (in terms of what to do)


dont get me wrong i have watched the animation :lol: and read alot.....but


Basscily I am wanting to get to a point where I am only relying on FakeSMC, ALC88xHDA.kext (i have ALC888-0).

to date i have managed to "patch" the actural bios with a more defined DSDT. using an old app "DSDT and bios patcher"


this has allowed me to remove the need for the graphics, HDA enablers and NullCPUManagment.kext


so...


- These packs what would they alow me to remove (kext's)

- how on earth do i enable sleeping (and be able to wake) - all attemps failed so far (no KP - just iether complete shut downs or non wakening)

does anybody have a fully dedveloped "patch" for this board, that takes care of everything


again i am deeply sorry for being simple here - but i do hope someone can lend a hand.


Greatfull in advanced

Nothing, you already did ("this has allowed me to remove the need for the graphics, HDA enablers and NullCPUManagment.kext").

There's a patch for your mobo in http://Olarila.com/forum/packs.php but it must be applied to your original DSDT (before BIOS mod). I also recommend a clean install (not iATKOS).

Thanks Cassio, Much appreciated!


I did look at the packs - this is what confuses me a little... there are loads!!

all across the internet... are patches, patches... i mean are there better or worse ones?

are there "complete" or "incomplete" ones


I mean is a patch a patch would a patch from this resource do something different to another?


clean install, not iatkos :shock:


are you saying i can purchase lion now from the app store and it will install??


again.... thanks

What patches are you talking about?


I'm talking about patches from this forum, you need this

http://Olarila.com/Packs/Gigabyte/GA%20965P-DQ6.txt

and this if you are using on-board video

http://Olarila.com/Patches/Misc/GMA950%20desktop.txt

both are on the php listings.

 

are you saying i can purchase lion now from the app store and it will install??

Not directly, but with a few modifications, yes.

Thanks...


I have come across a wide range of different pacthes to be used with different methods of fixing DSDT.

i have however just had a thought - they are different utilities so they are bound to look different right.


again Thanks for your help
