UPDATE: Installers have been updated to work with ANY version of OS X Leopard.

I was having a lot of trouble with PS/2 in 10.5.x, and thanks to Chun Nan and others, I got a solution. So I put the right kexts into an installer package so it will make it easier for others. The package is attached below, and 10.5.4 is required to use it. Some of the files I used: AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext and ApplePS2Controller.kext by Chun-Nan (based on DFE's ACPIPS2Nub.kext). I've tested this package on my own system and it works fine, but if you have issues, please feel free to tell me. Many thanks to Chun-Nan and the others that helped me get my PS/2 working!

If you have a PS/2 Keyboard or a PS/2 Keyboard AND Mouse then install the PS/2 Keyboard package. If you have only a PS/2 Mouse then install the PS/2 mouse package. Don't install both!!

EDIT: And another thing, please leave feedback here if it worked for you ;)

Don't ever stop although I saw the post where you said the 1-click installer will be your last project. :)

Thanks to you and the developers for this compilation. Helped me get over a problem I was having with updating to 10.5.4 on my DS3R board and the stupid wireless mouse and keyboard combo I have. It's a nice keyboard with a USB connector but for some stranger reason, the mouse is PS/2...

This doesn't really count as a "project". I put the package together in less than 5 minutes :P But glad you found it useful :)

Argh. I was having this problem with a PS/2 keyboard + USB mouse, last night. Tried a few fixes and none of them worked.

So I decided to wipe my Kalyway install and re-do everything up until 10.5.3 since 10.5.4 seems to be the culprit.

Only after wiping the previous install did I see this thread lol. But after getting everything setup again, I got 10.5.4 running and installed this with a USB keyboard I had lying around and my PS/2 keyboard works again.

Thank you!

pcwiz,

I was having trouble with my retail install of OSX but all I did was update to 10.5.4 and my keyboard and mouse started working on my laptop, would it be possible to use these kexts with the boot-132 extension folder to install 10.5 (if I need to reinstall in the future)?

Cheers

Yeah, you could. Just open the package using Pacifist, extract ApplePS2Controller.kext and AppleACPIPlatform.kext and use them with boot 132.

excellent, thank you. I am having problems with my audio, I have to install this package for it to work (attachment at bottom).

I would really like it to work with the extensions folder and 10.5 OSX Retail OTB, I have extracted the kext but it doesn't work with the boot cd.

Please can you help.

Yeah, a nice solution. Get rid of the ps/2 devices. Buy USB mouse and keyboard and never worry about the ps/2 problems any more.

The only way the package would screw it up was if you were using a custom AppleACPIPlatform.kext and replacing that might have messed it up...However, no need to do a reinstall of Leopard for it, you could have booted into single user mode and restored your old kexts, the installer makes a backup of your old kexts into /PS2Backup.

newbmac,

Thanks ;)
