If you’ve paid attention over at the bootloader page , you’ll note that xnu will actually boot as is on any Core-based system. That is the system integrity data, the purpose of which is not entirely clear. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. And since Darwin isn’t available anymore for non-Apple hardware, you can’t even attempt to repurpose a commodity PC to run Darwin in place of using a second Mac. But there is a way out. Or sign in with one of these services. These modifications are typically done at the machine-code level by disassembling the Apple binaries and changing things such as replacing portions of code with nop instructions or adding jmp instructions over “bad” parts of the code.

More are provided with OS X in binary form. Be warned if you port your code from OS X to other platforms carelessly For bit code there are currently 3 implementations of the bcopy routine. Unfortunately, once you venture into ACPI land e.

Each time deleted a file, open chrome to check if the issue is gone.

Darwin/x86 project

The interesting thing here is that while Intel documents that MSR as existing since the Pentium 4, they only document bits Share this post Link to post Share on other sites. Of particular interest is the bcopy routine. Then when I click OK it opens without my profiles.


It is not unti the Core 2 processor that Intel documents bits One other thing I can think of would be to check your extensions one-by-one from chrome: The built-in code which simply issues a halt instruction is sufficient.

Unfortunately, xnu needs extdnsion little bit of help if it is to run as a VMware guest. The answer is that you simply write a nub class which attaches to the other two nubs and thus provides a combined nub. So unless you have a spare Mac lying around to devote to Darwin, you’re going to want to use VMware.

That’s the only way you’re going to fix this problem.

Leopard has now added FireWire debugging which I’m sure is of great help to ethernet driver developers. If you are starting xnu on a extenion machine you probably have one so there is no need to hack the xnu source.

The issue is that the driver for it expects it to claim interrupts 1 and That is the system integrity data, the purpose of which is not entirely clear. I have now deleted all profiles, and uninstalled, purged, and reinstalled chrome and it keeps happening.

It’s also out of date — OS X The “commpage” The commpage on xnu is a tgwb area mapped in to each user-mode process that provides various things useful to all processes.

Again, this is not exactly the best written code. In this case, we’ll pick the keyboard nub. If it is zero, then some other method needs to be used.


By darklokJuly 16, in OSx86 It seemed to do only one measurement and doing this under VMware where ironically this is actually necessary would seem to require slightly more robust code. That is, rather than maintaining a fixed time-slice, xnu is able to maintain wall-time by basing it off of the number of processor cycles that have elapsed, that is, the difference between two reads of the TSC.

Email Required, but never shown.

I currently use a late-model P4 normally running Linux for my testing on real machines so I don’t need to modify the source except a very slight bit. Not only that, but this could also be an interesting alternative to two-machine debugging if you extrnsion writing a driver that can work in VMware.


The text above is of course the description of my findings and the source is of course based on this knowledge. Of course, if the processor completely naps, then the TSC doesn’t increment at all and the HPET is then the source of accurate wall time.

There’s no reason for them to be on a Mac. In the best case, our copy would win.
