Mac: AppleIntelCPUPowerManangement Kernel Panic

Mac: AppleIntelCPUPowerManangement Kernel Panic
After upgrading from Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 to 10.9.3, my machine (HP Probook 4530s) ran into AppleIntelCPUPowerManangement Kernel panic, and to my surprise none of the boot flags helped me to boot into the system.
I decided to do a fresh install, but even booting from USB resulted the same. Then I decided to remove AppleIntelCPUPowerManangement.kext, but I can't even access terminal.

Here's the solution:
My machine dual boots Windows and Mac.

  1. I logged into Windows
  2. Installed MacDrive, trial version
  3. Rebooted into windows and opened the drive on which Mac is installed
  4. Did two things, don't know which one helped:
Opened /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist with a text editor and added the following code:
<key>GenerateCStates</key>
<string>No</string>
<key>GeneratePStates</key>
<string>No</string>
And deleted AppleIntelCPUPowerManangement related kexts from this directory:
/System/Library/Extensions/
I found two kext folders related to it and deleted both.

Rebooted without any boot flags and voila. It worked.

Ubuntu: Access a usb flash drive from the terminal

    1. Find what the drive is called You'll need to know what the drive is called to mount it. To do that fire off: sudo fdisk -l You're looking for a partition that should look something like:   /dev/sdb1 . Remember what it's called. 2. Create a mount point Create a new directory in   /media   so you can mount the drive onto the filesystem: sudo mkdir /media/usb 3.

Karabiner: Mouse/keyboard customizer for OS X

For beginners, or the one who migrated from Windows environment, Natural Gestures (Scrolling and Swiping) might be bit confusing. But, once you get familiarized with them, it may feel like "What was I doing, all those days?". It all changed, when I connected external mouse to my Macbook. When you start using that WHEEL, you will be confused. Luckily there is a setting for mouse, to change scroll behavior (natural or the other way). But, here's the catch. If you toggle that setting, it also toggles the same for TRACKPAD!!!!! I've seen that many people were freaked out and even raised BUG report to Apple. But, all those reports were closed, saying that is not a bug, but intentional feature!!! For those, who can't leave with such one-sided settings, here is a simple util, which came to my rescue: Karabiner It's simple, powerful and stable mouse/keyboard customizer for OSX. Without going into much detail, here's the configuration I used to ret

Java: Use BigInteger in for-loop

In my previous post , I mentioned a way to handle large integers by using BigInteger. Now I'm going to provide a very important usage of it. We often use for-loop. So here is the way to use it: Ordinary integers: for(int i = 1; i <= n; i++) {  //Task to do } BigInteger: for (BigInteger bi = BigInteger.valueOf(1);                 bi.compareTo(n) <= 0;                 bi = bi.add(BigInteger.ONE)) { //Task to do } here n is a BigInteger variable.
