How To Enable QuartzGL and Disable BeamSync

This guide will help you enable/disable QuartzGL and BeamSync on Leopard!

Enable QuartzGL

Open Terminal

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver QuartzGLEnabled -boolean YES

Change YES to NO to disable it.

Restart or Log Out to take effect.

Disable BeamSync

Open Terminal

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver Compositor -dict deferredUpdates 0

Change 0 to 1 to enable it

You can also edit the file /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist using PlistEdit Pro or Property List editor from Xcode.

That should take care of it..

I’m hardly an Apple in-house systems engineer, I’m a user, but from what I understand from my reading, it works something like this.

QuartzGL may not be so optimised at the moment. Your Graphics card may be not so hot. CPUs are really fast when munching up screen-res sized images. It may also be that the apps aren’t optimised for QuartzGL either, and is having to effectively run the old code as well in order to translate into suitable Hardware Accelerated form. It may also be all of the above co-operating to make it sluggish.

QuartzGL is not exactly off either. It’s off by default. Applications which are compatible with it switch it on, and use it happily. 

Basically the data flow is that QuartzGL or Quartz non-GL (CPU flavour) feed into a natively OpenGL Compositing element of OSX. This whole process is called Core Image. Were you to do Quartz non-GL > QuartzGL > OpenGL Composite, then obviously this is less efficient.

Chances are that when we get OpenCL in Snow Leopard, then all of the tasks can be passed to the GPU indiscriminately, and the card will just munch them raw, regardless of what you want.

When you activate QuartzGL by default, all apps start using QuartzGL, not just the right apps.

The bottom line: the software which uses it dynamically will run at the same speed. The software which predates the option to switch it on isn’t written for it, and won’t work any faster. In actual fact, it’ll run slower. The CPU is having to do just the same work as before, running just the same code as before.

I don’t know which version of Xbench you’re using. Chances are it’s for testing current Macs, so the performance will obviously deteriorate when you switch on QuartzGL by default.

Mac OS X 10.5.5 Released

Mac OS X 10.5.5 has been released and can be downloaded through software updater or Apple’s website. 10.5.5 is fairly extensive and the full release notes can be found here.
While this update can be considered ‘safe’, its good to follow guides such this one to prevent AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext from breaking your install. AMD users can use the AMD Software Patcher for a safe installation. 
10.5.5 Combo Update (601 MB)

10.5.5 Update (316 MB)

10.5.5 Server Combo Update (729 MB)

10.5.5 Server Update (341 MB)

Good luck installing, be sure to back up with Time Machine prior to updating wink.gif

Worst Apple Themed Wallpapers Ever

Mac OS biasanya identik dengan tampilan grafis yang aduhai, model menu yang dipadukan dengan efek yang aduhai sehingga menghasilkan daya tarik tersendiri bagi pemakainya. Bagi penggemar Mac OS yang kreatif biasanya menyumbangkan ide-ide dalam bentuk aplikasi atau hanya sekedar “meracik” wallpaper.

Adalah Macenstein yang menilai beberapa wallpaper masuk dalam hitungan Worst Ever plus dengan komentar untuk masing2 wallpaper dan berikut beberapa wallpaper yang dimaksud.

Beruntung saya saya hanya menikmati Mac OS X mulai dari Tiger 10.4.8 s/d saat ini yaitu Leopard 10.5.4. 😀

Direct Update 10.5.1/10.5.2 ke 10.5.4

Direct Update Leopard dari 10.5.1/10.5.2 langsung ke 10.5.4 ternyata bisa… setelah mencoba 4 kali reinstall menggunakan metode NetKas.

Error yang muncul seringkali adalah seputar AppleAHCI:

13AppleAHCIPort is not compatible with its superclass. 10IOAHCIPort changed?
Failed to load extensions com.apple.AppleAHCIPort.
13AppleAHCIPort is not compatibel with its superclass. 10IOAHCIPort changed?
Failed to load extensions com.apple.AppleAHCIPort.

Solusi untuk itu adalah dengan me-restore AppleACPIPlatform.kext, AppleSMBIOS.kext, AppleAHCIPort.kext, IOAHCIFamily.kext dan kext lain yang berhubungan dengan driver.

SSH via SOCKS di Mac OS X

Tips ini sangat berguna jika akses direct menggunakan SSH diblok sehingga kita perlu melewatkan akses SSH ini ke proxy yang mendukung Socks, berikut adalah caranya:

 

  1. Download file connect.c
  2. Compile dari terminal dengan command: gcc connect.c -o connect -lresolv
  3. Copy file connect yang udah jadi ke /usr/sbin
  4. chmod 755 /usr/sbin/connect
  5. Sekarang saatnya untuk memasukkan parameter ke ssh config : nano ~<nama user>/.ssh/config
  6. Trus masukkan parameter:
Host <ip/hostname tujuan>
ProxyCommand connect -S <ip socks> %h %p
Dan lakukan koneksi ssh seperti biasa
