How To: EOS Movie Recorder Mac Fix

Picture of working app

I downloaded the new version of EOS Movie Recorder which lets your Canon 40D record video, this time on a Mac. So I downloaded it and installed it, but it would crash right away. Soon I found out, you need certain frameworks, in order to make the Application work. So here is what I did.

• I download this file, QT Source
• Go to the Packages folder in the DMG, and install Libraries and Plug – Ins
• Connect your Camera, and Fire Up the Applications, and record some awesome videos.

A Hack Pro which is going to fly soon…

Another Day, Another average story. My Cousin who has this nice Dell Precision 690 Server PC. Which we (Me and Junaid) thought would be a perfect candidate for installing Leopard on. My cousin has to HAVE his PC work with 4 monitors. Which was powered by a ATI FireMV2400 which I knew wasn’t supported but, didn’t stop us fellow hackers. So we continued. We went down to our local Fry’s, and bought 4 GB’s of Fully Buffered Dimms (Server Memory) and a 500 GB hdd. We were on our way. We went to the Loft/Office and Installed all of it. Man 16 slots of Memory Heaven, after that booted from Leopard HDD and waited 5 Mins for it to finish booting, after that we need to format that drive, but wouldn’t show up in Disk Utility, so we are like what? We went into the Bios and checked it out, we soon found out the SAS Controller wasn’t supported in our Hack. So we switched both of them to the Sata Controller, It worked installed and booted, and guess what video worked! but wait not for the ATI but the nVidia which I forgot to mention. QE/Ci all that good stuff. It was nicely working, sound, 6 Gb/s of ram, but that stupid 4 monitor video FireMV. Continue reading “A Hack Pro which is going to fly soon…”

Multi Touch Comes to OSX

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOckVTgWBr4[/youtube]

Lux is an experimental framework that brings full screen multi-touch to OS X. As you can see in the video above it allows a quasi-iPhone like experience in OS X. The project is scheduled to go live in June. Over at Gizmodo they have an interview with the developer, Christian Moore, who talks about the project and how it was built. Next thing you know we will have 3-D multi touch like Iron Man. This is amazing. A bunch of you are probably wondering what the song is called, well HERE it is

From Pc to Hackintosh

dual screensTo start off this article, you should know a little bit about my Mac background. About a year ago I had never used Mac OS X in my life. Back then I never even saw a Mac computer in real life. Sure, I knew what they looked like, and I saw demos of OS X during Steve Jobs’ keynotes, but I had never used a Mac. Although I had never used a Mac, I was still Mac-curious. Being an iPod and iTunes user, I was already familiar with the design and functionality of Apple, and being fed up with Windows at the time, I looked toward Mac OS. There was one problem, though. Macs were expensive, I had a limited budget, and I wasn’t going to spend everything I had to buy a computer I had never even used.

Then Steve Jobs revealed the future of Macs at WWDC 2005. Macs were going to be running on Intel. That announcement instantly got my head spinning. Maybe I could run Mac OS X on my current PC? Then, I asked a few of my friends then I ran along into superjunaid who I asked if it could he said “YES” amazed in shock I was quite actually a happy man. I apparently wasn’t alone. Since there was a number of people who wanted OS X on generic hardware, fake copies started spreading around. After several fake copies, a real leak was finally released, and thus began my journey into OSx86.

I First went with the release of JAS 10.4.8 Amd which was basically taken off the idea of PPC, Those people who started this have the most fascinating brains. I first installed with no idea just everything all at once gave me a kernel panic, I asked super(man)junaid what’s up with this, he directed me to the right way. Things got a little fishy after that I was using my onboard nVidia 6100 GPU and it completely sucked no accelerated graphics. I then didn’t know what all this meant and went ahead and installed iMovie ’06 had know clue what it was but heard it was the easiest most advanced editing software ever out there. I installed imported the video whatever parts with no lagging or any such. I tried editing it but iMovie wouldn’t allow it then I went into my system profile and “QE” and “CI” wasn’t supposably supported so I screwed this only had Mac installed didn’t and sort of dual booting and left it and I actually bought a copy of Vista for I don’t know what I was thinking. Then I saw the latest iMovie which was indeed amazing, and made me want to go back so I later caught back up with superman and told me some advice of supported video cards. I bought one which is the PNY nVidia 7300GT which is excellent and later found out this was a card in the Mac Pro.

I installed and finally found out how to dual boot as I did. I made a partition and was on my way as I was ready to reformat my disk with Disk Utility and I was about to reformat it would hang at “Loading Hard Drives” and at that point I was scared. Then, I downloaded Tubgirl 10.4.10 Tiger Build which was the newest one and I tried reformatting it through their and gave the same BS. I later found out what it was with the help superjunaid it was a STUPID SD card in my pc. So I got it to install with full QE/CI Support and it was excellent I later found out that Leopard was coming out a month later and was interested in that. I coudn’t get it at the time because it wasn’t supported for AMD and then magic happened.

I found out about a build with AMD and 10.5.1! I wanted to waited it out to see if it worked then I was just using Tiger and I was one monitor and wanted to take full advantage. I did i got the .kext (which are like .ini files for p.c..) and got dual monitors working. I then heard allot of people had success and I tried first I downloaded macDrive(can view you mac files on windows) for windows just incase Installed it and loaded up first time kernel panic(OS failure) found I had to delete some kext as I did it worked. With no drivers booting VGA mode and I soon got the video Drivers I got Dual Monitors and QE, QE2D,QEGL, and CI. My sound worked everything, just had to do a little tweaks and bam It finally works.

As, I am in Leopard while i am typing this and its great soon I will install Linux and see anything good on that, if you want to know about Linux an0malistic is the guy for you.
