    My fan is constantly running at full speed. Has anyone got around this? [specs at the end of post] Ive been going crazy trying to sort out speedstep etc (thats me assuming speedstep is the reason for the fast fan). Please dont just tell me to get over the fan speed . I know about voodoopower etc and it hasnt made a difference. Ive tried many cominations of kernels with voodoopower. E.g vanilla with voodoopower or the given speedstep kernel during install with voodoopower.

    Any help would be useful. i cant find any solid RECENT step by steps for speedstep or fan control. I dont mind having to get another distro or kernel if anyone thinks i should etc etc. Ive got everything else working fine its just this ringing my brains out. Ive read about SMC and SMBIOS i understood slightly that editting them to match my hardware would help but i need to be pointed in the right direction on where to start. Same goes for DSDT. Not a complete noob so yeah...dont worry about talking about them.

    So RIGHT NOW, I've got:

    iDeneb v1.6 with Vanilla Kernel and Voodoopower.kext installed
    Processor Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P7450 @ 2.13GHz
    MEMORY : 4096MB (2X2048) 800MHZ DDR2
    I hope ive given enough.
    Thanks!!!

    Honestly, thats exactly what I would of tried. You might need to make a custom dsdt though. It should be easier if you're using a core 2 processor though. They actually have a version of voodoopower.kext that works with the vanilla snow leopard kernel. It doesn't work with our i7's yet, but core2 should work. I also noticed my snow leopard install w/ dsdt has less fan noise, but due to running at full frequency all the time it still runs a little fast. It doesn't idle though. There is a separate device entry in the dsdt for the fan so that probably means the fan speeds are separate from the c and p states. Don't quote me on this though.

    Thanks for the reply Kile

    Do you have any really good threads/guides/ you can point me to that explain how to get started with editting dsdt/making a custom one. I'd really appreciate it. Oh so i guess it would be better to update to snow then? Whats the best route from iDeneb 10.5.8? I think I'll try that first and see if the fan speed is "better" before going into the world of dsdt T_T

    The fan speed is a little better. Instead of full speed its just fast and faster. But snow leopard is also a good idea becuase its more stable than a distro and newer applications are more likely to run on it. If you look farther back in the post I made a driver pack. The instructions I put in them are long and confusing, but pretty detailed. Of course in posts after that I had to clarify things for other people. So check the whole thread to see if any problems you encounter have already been taken care of. Oh yeah, if the link is broken just tell me

    Oh yeah, mines actually a 1555 not 1557. I know its not gonna need the same kexts for HARDWARE but is it okay to be using the other stuff i.e in the extensions folder in your driver pack (fakesmc, ataportinjector) etc etc?

    P.S your link is fine

    Edit: And the dsdt.aml file? Would yours work?

    You should use your own considering the 1555 uses the c2d instead of the i7. I used ubuntu 9.10 and acpidump to get my dsdt. If you do that the dsdt will be in your home directory. There are tutorials for this. There are also dsdt patchers for use in windows and mac os x, but those didn't work as good as acpi dump. Either way don't be afraid of the dsdt. Really, for the most part editing it and getting it to compile is hard manual labor if it doesn't already compile. For instance, the one I made in ubuntu refuses to compile after decompiling, yet it worked better than the other dsdt's I used that DID compile properly. So if one was so inclined to, they could quite easily make a dsdt that readily compiles with one of the programs, decompile it and compare the code in the ubuntu dsdt I provided regarding the sound(HDEF in this case) and then add the ssdt tables in the order the main ssdt specifies(you can easily figure it out by reading the decompiled ssdt's whats what). There might be a complication, but it should just be some decompiling, scrolling, copying, cutting, pasting and compiling and then you're done. You could do the same, comparing my dsdt to one you created if you're on a 1555, just don't add in my ssdt tables, use your own and only if everything else fails to get speedstep working. Also, I'm no dsdt.aml expert. I would advise reading some tutorials. I do know iaslme is a good compiler/decompiler. I was also under the impression that there were already plenty of tutorials for the 1555, but I could be wrong on that. As for the 4570 graphics, I read something about 512 mb cards not working while the 256mb versions of the same card did. Maybe if someone changed the dsdt to SAY it was the 256mb version it would work fine. Btw, as I mentioned how I got the display detected with the vanilla kext but it was garbled. I still have the modifications I made to the plists documented in some text files. Just holler If you managed to make a dsdt compile that said the vram was only 256mb and just end up with a black screen. I can look at those files and tell you what I changed to get to that garbled screen.

    I would imagine most of the kexts would be the same, just do some research and find out more about the studio 1555. The thing is, is the 1557 is a completely different chipset. Most of those kexts are quite generic, so just experiment and see what works. I do know the radeonhd kext will be fine if you have an ati gpu, and every hackintosh needs a decrypter like fakesmc. If you don't think somethings causing problems, don't remove it.

    Default bsm auditing present

    hi

    im new to this hackos stuffs

    i've just installed ideneb 1.6 1058 lite on my dell studio 1557
    (checking almost every custom checkbox - except nvidia related)

    i managed grub2 to load chameleon
    (as i triple boot)
    adding this to /etc/grub.d/40_custom :
    Code:
    menuentry "Mac OS X" {
    	insmod hfsplus
    	set root=(hd0,3)
    	chainloader /usr/standalone/i386/chain0
    }
    (might be useful to anyone)

    i boot with chameleon using
    -v -x cpus=4 busratio=20
    (same way i load the installer cd)

    but my verbose boot freeze at bsm auditing present

    do you have any idea what it means ?

    is there a way to switch kernel ?

    thx !

    Yeah, the whole keyboard identification comes up every now and again. It seems like it happened less with time. Snow is the best on this machine in my opinion, and any future support for our cards is likely to come to snow leopard first before anyone works on a leopard version. Thats pretty interesting that you got chameleon loading from grub. I found it easier and more aesthetically pleasing to load grub from chameleon. Chameleon just automatically detects bootable partitions so its alot simpler than editing conf files. If the end result you're going for is snow leopard on your hackintosh, I would just install kalyway 10.5.2 with the default settings and install snow leopard from thier. The partitioning shouldn't be as complex as mine was as you are only triple booting. I was quad booting win 7, ubuntu 9.10, snow and pc-bsd 8. I needed three primary partitions and an extended partition. It went disk0s1-windows 7 disk0s2-pcbsd diskos3-snow leopard disk0s4-extended disk0s5-ubuntu disk0s6-FAT32(data) disk0s7-kalyway(to repair SL if need be). This of course requires you have loads of disk space. I have a 500gb hd so it wasn't that bad of a stretch. I should also mention I had a problem with the bootloader for pc-bsd taking over an hour to load(just the bootloader ) After that it was very fast though. I never resolved that. Have fun ing your PC.
