Hi guys,

Here is the beta AppleACPIPS2Nub I have revised. It will work with any version of AppleACPIPlatform without editing the info.plist. Hopefully, in the future, we don't have to worry about AppleACPIPlatform being updated and losing the PS/2 devices.

It is based on original dfe's ACPIPS2Nub. (http://www.tgwbd.org...extensions.html) I have tested it with 1.1.0 and 1.2.1 of AppleACPIPlatform and it works. Make sure that you don't have ACPIPS2Nub Installed or it will cause error.

Again, it is just the beta version and backup the original ACPIPS2Nub before trying it.

1. AppleACPIPS2Nub_b5: Fixed PS/2 keyboard working without PS/2 mouse existed in the system.
2. AppleACPIPS2Nub_Mouse: Fixed PS/2 mouse working without PS/2 keyboard existed in the system.

AppleACPIPS2Nub_Mouse is basically the same as AppleACPIPS2Nub_b5. In the AppleACPIPS2Nub_b5, mouse is attached to keyboard while in the AppleACPIPS2Nub_Mouse, keyboard is attached to mouse.

(You might need the modified ApplePS2Controller to make your PS/2 devices work if your system ONLY has PS/2 keyboard OR PS/2 mouse existed.)

============================

Update: 8/8/2008 (ApplePS2Controller)

The ApplePS2Controller I revised. It should work with most of keyboards including Gateway and LG notebook.

Q: Does this .kext is only needed for Notebooks (their buildin keyboard + trackpad) or is it also needed for normal PCs ?

Thanks man!
I installed a retail leopard on my laptop using the boot-132 cd. After the installation leopard doesn't recognize my keyboard. It says that the keyobard isn't connected, so it ask me to do it.

Would this kext solve this problem??? :)

Doesn't matter as long as it is somewhere in Extensions folder, make sure to remove the old one.

Hi mitch_de,

I think you need it for any computers (desktops or laptops) that have PS/2 devices (keyboard or mouse). In addition, you still need ApplePS2Controller to work with it.

Hi titooo,

It should work if your keyboard is PS/2 interface. However, you still need ApplePS2Controller to work with it.

Not to sound stupid, but I'm extremely new to the OSx86 project. Does the entire folder need to go in to the extensions folder, or just the appleps2controller.kext?

Hey guys, I can't get it working. What am I doing wrong?

So I lost the PS2 keyboard when I upgraded from 10.5.2 to 10.5.4. I tried a bunch of things to fix it, but basically this is how it stands now:
  • AppleACPIPlatform.kext is in the Extensions folder, version 1.0.3
  • The new AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext is in the plugins folder of the above kext
  • ApplePS2Controller.kext is in the Extensions folder, version 1.1.0
Is there something missing? Why won't it work?

Hi The Gonif,

Have you removed or moved the old ACPIPS2Nub.kext from your extensions folder? Double check your file permissions.

Hi austinsnyc,

According to your log:
"
Jul 9 23:12:52 localhost kernel[0]: Class "AppleACPIPS2Nub" is duplicate
Jul 9 23:12:52 localhost kernel[0]: Duplicate class
"
You need to remove or move the old ACPIPS2Nub.kext from your extensions folder.

whoever has such problems please also look inside the AppleACPIPlatform.kext/Contents/PlugIns, if a ACPIPS2Nub.kext is in there, and if so then remove it out of there .. :jerry:

  • use the current AppleACPIPlatform.kext 1.21 without any AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext or ACPIPS2Nub.kext. 1.0.3 comes from Tiger, meant for non-EFI in Leo and is buggy ..
  • here I have the AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext directly in the XT folder. Why would you want to put it inside another kext?

So how does this extensions differ from dfe's ACPIPS2Nub? Does it just automatically detect AppleACPIPlatfrom version or is there more?

Thanks for the great work!

Will this fix the non-working PS2 onboard keyboard not functioning (at all) on a brand new Gateway M6843? Syn trackpad works great, but the built-in PS2 keyboard doesn't work whatsoever. Plugging in a USB keyboard is required to finish installation and to use.

Normally I'd just give it a spin but I'm away and currently have no USB keyboard available (I'm booted into Vista... eww).

I'm dual booting with Mac OS X 10.5.4 Kalyway.

Vista reports it as a PS2 keyboard. This laptop has no PS2 ports -- just USB and VGA.

Any ideas? Thanks.
