Quartz Extreme at the End of the Tunnel?
So far, on 10.5.6, there are 2 major points I'd like to sort out:
(1) Full graphics hardware accelaration or simply put, enable Quartz Extreme - NVinject method is first for me try
(2) Audio - sound assertions in the dsdt.aml from the HP Mini 311 Darwin Project (which supports Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard exclusively) causes freezes during boot up.
That's 2 out of a legion of "issues" I'm anticipating.
For now, as initial approach in this so-called "reconnaissance stage" with Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard on the HP Mini 311, I'm using kexts with some EFI strings approach and not dsdt.aml yet (which I hope to arrive at as finishing stages).
Gee, it's like writing my thesis again only this time, it's aiming at less abstract ends than my literature concentrated thesis in college :D
