I just got a Alienware m11x R2, after installation, it got a panic - "commpage no match for last, next address ffff1780"@......commpage.c:330
I google it, that's a xnu sourcecode about this kernel, but I still cannot solve it.
And idea or solution?
I'm digging up this thread to hopefully engage with the users here.
I've just recently gotten 10.6.7 installed on my M11X R1. It works flawlessly (including sleep). I've run into an issue with the NIC, however. I've tried several different versions of the atherosl1cethernet.kext, and though the NIC is recognized, and I can get an IP address through DHCP, I cannot get out to the internet. I get an IP from the router, but cannot ping the router, or do any kind of DNS resolution. I'm wondering if this is an issue because I'm running 10.6.7, and not 10.6.6 or earlier? I've not yet found any threads or discussion of 10.6.7 on the M11X R1, but it does work perfectly. So now, at the very least, I have a fully functional MacBook Air clone (due to non-working Ethernet), but if I can get the NIC working properly, it'll be more like a HackBook Pro.
Also, I've heard there's a patched x3100 kext you can use to make the GMA 4500HD graphics work? If so, you can then re-enable switchable graphics in the BIOS, and probably boost the battery life significantly, right?
P.S. If anyone needs help getting 10.6.7 on their R1 (not sure about R2 and up), please let me know, and I'll try my best.
Can you please help me install in the r2?
How did you manange to install in the R1? I wouldent care if the NIC port does not work althought it would be great if it did. I really want to get OSX working on the m11r2
BTW can it dualboot? to windows or only straight to OSX?
Hey guys, Im following IKA's method for installing osx on the m11x using iBoot. I keep getting kernel panic when I try to boot, telling me to restart the computer before reaching the installation screen. Im in AHCI mode, have tried -x, -v, PCIRootUID=1(2,3, etc), GraphicsEnabler=No, and nothing works. Im following your method only Im using snow leopard 10.6 install disk and on my bootable flash Im using iBoot 3.2, made bootable using this method
"1. Download iBoot CD and mount CD
2. Go to /Applications/Utilities and use Disk Utility
3. Click your USB thumb drive and click Restore
4. Drag the mounted CD ISO to Source
5. Drag your USB stick on the left side to Destination and click Restore
Now download tony-snowleopard zip file
1. Go to Apps and run PC EFI installer and change destination as the USB drive
2. Go to PC EFI website and get the latest PC EFI boot file 10.6
3. Unzip the Bzip file and drag it to your USB drive it will ask you if you want to overwrite the one there say yes
That should be it just make sure you have your USB drive set as first boot
After this point you can customize your USB drive, rename it, whatever you want
P.S. I have an EVGA SE LI with Nvidia GX260, Ethernet, Sound, Graphics with Quartz Extreme all work with no changes to system. Sleep probably doesn't work haven't tested. Able to run World of Warcraft on Ultra settings with 60 FPS and 40 FPS in Dalaran"
That I found in the tonymac forums. I also removed the ram on my m11x to 4gb, it is the r2 version with the i5 cpu. Still nothing. Any ideas? Really appreciate any help, thanks!
I have an R1 model and I had every thing working except except the sleep, it went into a coma and did not come out. so i gave up (about 2 months ago (cant rememebr if i had 10.6.7 or 10.6.6), but know as you have sleep working its worth revising again.
Can you send a list of the kexts you are using over and above the standard apple kexts, i.e. all the kexts that are in the extra folder, any sleep enabler and kexts loaded using kext helper etc..
Also what boot loader are you using ?
Using chameleon loader 2.0 RC5 r10xxVS (cant rememberthe version number)
additional kexts loaded in the S/L/E are
in the extra/Extensions
using DSDT.aml as provided by "TheHawks"
Then i installed the lastet update 10.6.8 all works except both the wirelsss and NIC have stopped working, machine is slow to respond. By disabling both the NIC and wirelss card machine responds normally (inc sleep) but now no networking. Basically both the devices are available (when enabled) but they are not assigned IP address. Anyone with ideas.
