Hi Guys,

Im creating a guide showing how i installed leopard on my hp laptop. I will include everything i did and will update as soon as i get stuff working> If anyone has any help or already has stuff working let me know!!

****Now Running 10.5.3****

xbench result of 93.92

Attached File  version.tiff   42.21KB   216 downloads

I have a HP DV2535ea and have finall got Leopard Installed and the following working:

Setup Before Leopard Install was dual boot now its tripple boot on one hard disk:

160gb hard drive
Recovery: 8
Windows Vista: 110
Debian:10
Leopard: 15

All my shared file are in my windows partiton which both linux and leopard can access (no write support in leopard yet apart from for root): I boot using grub and all can boot sucessfully from the grub menu. (MAC only started working when i switched to Kalyway version)

Firstly the version I used was Kalyway_10.5.2_DVD_Intel_Amd and found it on a popular site mininova.org: With a Clean fresh install (no guide needed just follow on screen instruction and install in a free partition i would recommend 15gb just make sure you select to install al the kernels) And under apps select imacam or webcam (cant quite remeber) Going to try and update to 10.5.3 today using kalyways patch will let you know how i get on!

Updating to 10.5.3

Download the kalyway update from a popular torrent site with piratebay in the name!!
Follow the instructions in the readme.
Please note i had to run the update -v at boot time to get the system back but it did come back!!

After the first boot the system is a lot quicker and a lot more stable

What works What doesn't:

CPU : Both cores work
Hard Drive:
Works and ntfs partitions are automatically reconised and mounted
Memory:
Both DIMS working
DVD Drive:
Works havent tried burning a DVD on it yet but it does see it as a DVD burner
USB ports:
Work
Intergrated LAN:
Didn't Work ***UPDATE Working with some changes below***
Intergrade wireless 4965AGN:
Not working
Internal Memory Card Reader: Doesn't work
Graphics Display
:Doesn't Work ***UPDATE Now Fully Working with both CI and QE Support see below for more details***
Sound:
Works
Webcam internal: Reconised but no picutre **UPDATE now Working ***
Finger Print Scanner: Reconised but havent tried using it
IPOD:
now Working (no fix needed)
Firewire:
Works
Sleep Function: Doesn't work
Bluetooth: Works and can connect and send and receive from my n95!
Battery/Power Save:
Stopped Working with 10.5.3 update***Update 3/6/08 Now Working***
MAC Updates: [/b]Updated from 10.5.2 to 10.5.3 not using mac update though!!
Keyboard: Works but some keys are in the wrong place!!***Update 3/6/08 Working ***
HP Touch Keys: Fully working i.e touch volume control
Internal Microphone: Not Working


Work in Progress

So thats what works and what doesn't. Im going to try and work on the following in the following order:


1. Graphic (better screen resolution) *** UPDATE Now working see below ****
2. Webcam ***UPDATE working see below ***
3.IPOD ***UPDATE working with 10.5.3 update***
4. NTFS write support ***UPDATE now working ***
5. Keyboard ***Update working see below***
6. Battery /Power Save ***UPDATE working see below***

7. Wireless (not much chance for the moment but keep your eye on (http://code.google.com/p/iwidarwin/)
8. Intergrated memory card Reader
9. Internal Microphone
10. Sleep Function
11. Finger Print Scanner is an Authentec AES2510

Anyone with any of the above working please pm me a section and I will add it help will be much apreciated and I will of course credit you.

First Impressions:

Is quick very stable but having a lot of fun trying to make some of the features fully work! but thats part of the fun


How to get stuff To Work:

On Board LAN

To get the on Board LAN to work you need to follow the insturctions below: I have copied them from a previous thread and edited them as the guy was spannish APPLE X (is his id what a legend for getting it working) so his english wasnt the best! However for me I have to load the driver everytime I reboot so going to try and change that too:***UPDATE 1st June 08 Now Autoloading at startup see below****

Instructions below:

First

sudo -s (you will now be root so be careful)
cd /System/Library/Extensions
chmod -R 755 IONetworkingFamily.kext


You now need to open the following file: I useVI but any method is fine

vi /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon2.kext/Contents/Info.Plist

The file is split into different sections. You looking for the following sections 88E8053 88E8055, 88E8055-B0, 88E8061 and 88E8062. You need to change the below string

<key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key>
<string>0xsomevalue</string>


You need to replace somevalue with the device ID of your LAN card. This is different for every laptop and can be found if you have linux installed using lspci -nn or you can download this package (google it) pciutils_osx_installer.pkg.zip

Your looking for a line simlar to this: (or something with marvell in)

00:0a.0 Bridge [0680]: nVidia Corporation CK804 Ethernet Controller [10de:0057] (rev a3)

So if you had the above linew your device id would be 005710de Now we need to reload and activate the driver.

sudo -s
rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext
kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions


Thats it your done without the need for a reboot!! If you do reboot and the driver doesn't load then you need to run the following line:</SPAN>

sudo cp -R AppleYukon2.kext /System/Library/Extensions
Lastly, update the extensions cache with "sudo kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions

(Thank to starholdest for this tip)

Right im going to try and do the thing that arent working. When I get them working I will add them!! (Oh anything else you think i should test or if you want to know how to get something to work let me know)

NVIDIA Driver

I have now manged to get the correct driver installed for my video card using the following instruction:

Installed NVkush from http://diabolik1605.com/DHF/
- Removed NVinject.kext from extensions folder. (only if you have installed it i didnt)
- Rebooted and at boot time i stopped it and booted with the following flags -f -v
- Display looked a 100 times better and in system profiles under graphics card it reports the following:

Chipset Model: I Can Has Model?
Type: Display
Bus: PCIe
PCIe Lane Width: x16
VRAM (Total): 64 MB
Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)

Im not 100% sure think I didn't have to. But when i load ichat or anything that loads my webcam it will bring up a box saying iusbcam detecing cams! So if it doesn't a reboot may be needed!!

Have you tried booting into the different kernels? also you may want to try nvidia inject driver!

Yeah that's okay. From what I researched its a problem with my webcam being not a very high-res Cam and the default on the driver is to force it at a higher resolution and hence no image gets through.. The solution was to remove some DVC plugin under Quicktime which will supposedly get it to work under Photobooth (but not iChat as iChat doesn't use that).. I'm hunting for a more universal solution...

Thanks for all the help!

Hi

Thanks 4 a great guide, it really helped me install Leopard on my DV2680. Ive managed to get everything that you have working. Did you manage to get your Video output(e.g. onto a projector) working? Mine seems to hang when I press the FN+F4 Key. Anyone else experiencing the same thing?

As for the vidcam, I got it to work using the IUSB package. However, it only works in iChat and a few other apps. Photobooth does not work for me. Also can't get it to work to change my security account picture.

Oh well. I'm on the quest to find sound for my rig. Also, I'm looking for drivers for my 5-in-1 memory card reader. I'll let you know what I find.
