Please compile this kext.

I cannot seem to get this kext to compile on my powerbook. It is the driver for nVidia overclocking software that I am working on. Could someone please compile this for me? I give many thanks to whoever helps me.
I need it compiled for ppc64 ppc i386 x86_64.

Use Xcode. The kext you posted as a zip-file has an Xcode project, so I don't know why this wouldn't be obvious.

Sign up at the free (non-paying) level as an Apple Developer. Then sign in using that account and download the version of Xcode appropriate for your OS version.

Older versions of Xcode, i.e. the 3.* and earlier version numbers, are freely available as downloads from the Apple Developer Center. To find them:
1. Login at:
https://developer.apple.com/devcenter/mac/index.action
2. Click the "View all downloads" link.
3. Type xcode or xcode 3 in the search box.

Each individual version of Xcode download should list what the minimum OS version is. You can also read Xcode release notes to find which Xcode version was the last one to have PPC-targeted compilers.

Although I may be wrong (and I know you'll come out of the woodwork to correct me, which is what I'm counting on) I'm under the impression KEXT's may now be signed with your Apple Developer certificate and can be traced back to you.

I have Xcode 3.1.
I am very new to programming and need a tutorial on this.

You are new to programming and you are trying to play with a driver?!?
Thats not dangerous at all....

Open the xcode project file, itll be the blue icon in your source folder.
When it opens hit build
