RC4 broke Voodoo Kernel CPU faking
« on: February 19, 2010, 05:53:32 AM »
With Chameleon 2.0 RC3 and older releases, the Voodoo Kernel was setting my P4 CPU as 'Core Solo' automatically.

But when I installed Chameleon 2.0 RC4 on my P4 Hackintosh, the CPU went back to 'unknown'. It runs 10.5.8 retail with the Qoopz 9.8.0 Voodoo kernel.

cpu-type in ioregistryexplorer shows 0101. About This Mac now shows "3.4 GHz Unknown" and sysctl -a | grep cpu says "kern.exec: unknown type returned".

With RC3 it showed Core Solo like it's supposed to.

RC4 CPU injection works fine on the hack in my sig though, but it doesn't use the Voodoo Kernel.

btw does anybody know what's the correct CPU type number for a Core Solo? I've tried to find an ioreg dump from the Mac Mini that uses it but no luck so far.

One more thing - GraphicsEnabler works great with the Geforce 7600 GT AGP video card in my P4 hack, but it shows as unknown.
Device ID is 02e0 if you want to add it. I'm just happy to see it working, didn't expect GraphicsEnabler to work with AGP cards at all.

Is there a way to disable CPU Injection in RC4?

Voodoo Kernel CPU faking is working again on the old P4 with Chameleon 2.0 RC5.

Some cosmetics:

RAM speed and type is detected but manufacturer, serial and part number is not.
8086:2570 82865G/PE/P DRAM Controller/Host-Hub Interface (ICH5/i865PE)

Still no GraphicsEnabler love for 7600 GT AGP dev ID 0x02e0 :P It works fine though, I've even got rotation, the correct ROM version shows in System Profiler, etc etc.
