    Default Adobe CS3 vs AppleSMBios.kext

    I've been struggling to install Adobe CS3 design premium on my hackintosh lately (French version) and finally found that it was having issues with the AppleSMBios.kext I was using.
    I could get the whole CS3 apps to work using an older AppleSMBios (from JaS 10.4.7 DVD) but this one does not read my CPU correctly in About this mac and ASP. I finally could get on from TubGirl 10.4.8 DVD which allows About this Mac to show correct CPU infos, but ASP will report an error gathering info in Hardware tab. Does anyone knows a fully working AppleSMBios.kext for CS3 which still shows correct info in ASP and about this mac ?

    Paulicat's AppleSMBios doesn't allow me to run CS3 apps...

    Also, maybe I could build the kext from source with Darwin opensource files, but I really don't know what to edit to have it "hackintosh compliant"

    BTW, config is Gigabyte GA945GM-S2, core2duo E6400, 2Gb DDR2 667, GeForce 7900GS...

    yep, I tried it, but it did not work on the version I have (French localized)
    But maybe I did not get the right one, demonoid is filled with different cracks and patches for CS3, but description regarding multilang support is missing...
    Well, so far so good, it runs fine now, just lacking ASP hardware tab to be fixed...

    Unhappy

    Having the same problem on 10.4.9 with paulicat's SMBios and 8.9.1 kernel.

    The issue is regarding flexlm and GetMacAddress API call that returns an invalid Mac address so the flexlm cannot get other mac value than 0. And this value is invalid for the flexlm tool.

    Also Maya 8 doesnt work, it is confirmed, by the same reason, none of the programs that rely on GetMacAddress wont work unless AppleSMBIOS.kext is fixed somehow to make that API function work.

    At least, you know where the problem comes from !!
    let me know if you need a partially working AppleSMBios.kext.
    It would be nice to get one properly fixed though... Maybe you could contact Paulicat telling him the details to fix, as you seem to know what it is related to !

    cheers

    Well, it was applied already before, so I shouldn't have to reinstall it.
    I've tried with and without it so only remains the general ASP hardware tab to fix. Other specific tabs are working (ATA, SATA, USB, FireWire...) Only the part which shows CPU & features, FSB and system summary is broken. (actually, looking at colonel's sys profiler patch, the general hardware tab seems to be the only thing witch is not patched, when you have a look at the package content)

    Ok, i've contacted paulicat using his webform (http://paulicat.freeflux.net/contact/), lets hope he reads that message (i couldnt find any other way of contacting him).

    If any of you people know, please let him know about this issue, it is really frustrating.

    One can try if GetMacAddress works for lmhost authentication system, if you go at the producer website and download from this page :

    http://www.macrovision.com/support/b...download.shtml

    this file:

    ftp://ftp.globes.com/fnp-licensing/u...mac10_lmutil.Z

    and chmod +x on it after unzipping (cause its an executable)

    in the usage parameters (just run it with no params, it will show help) you will see how you can use it to show you your mac address, if it says it is unable, then AppleSMBIOS.kext is the screwed one ( but the one that doesnt break "About this Mac", from paulicat - a great fix for us altough)

    Good luck in your testing.

    So let me see if I understand this-

    The "HostID" is unique ID number that identifies your computer. This number is used to generate a FLEXlm license key.

    The method described in the previous post should return the "HostID" using the "lmutil lmhostid" binary executable.

    For those afraid of the terminal here is a clickable application that will perform the same function. It's basically the same "lmutil lmhostid" binary executable wrapped in a nice script.

    If your hackintosh doesn't return a "HostID", then software relying on FLEXlm (eg CS3) will not work.

    The "lmutil lmhostid" utility should print the exact "HostID" that FLEXlm expects to use on any given machine.
    For Mac OS X, the "HostID" is formed from the Media Access Control(MAC) address of the Network Interface en0 with the colons removed.

    So on a machine with a en0 MAC address of 00:13:8f:ec:04:a2, then the "HostID" should be 00138fec04a2.

    You can find your en0 MAC address with the following terminal command:
    /sbin/ifconfig en0 | grep ether

    Here is the output from "lmutil lmhostid" when the AppleSMBIOS.kext is FUBAR:

    Andy-iHack:~ andy$ /Users/andy/Desktop/lmutil lmhostid
    lmutil - Copyright (c) 1989-2006 Macrovision Europe Ltd. and/or Macrovision Corporation. All Rights Reserved.
    The FLEXlm host ID of this machine is ""
    lmhostid: Cannot find ethernet device. (-29,581)


    Here is the output from "lmutil lmhostid" when the AppleSMBIOS.kext is all good:

    Andy-iHack:~ andy$ /Users/andy/Desktop/lmutil lmhostid
    lmutil - Copyright (c) 1989-2006 Macrovision Europe Ltd. and/or Macrovision Corporation. All Rights Reserved.
    The FLEXlm host ID of this machine is "00138fec04a2"
