I'm trying to fix me ac'97 audio with the guide on wiki but when I type the nano Info.plist it says nano command not found... I 'm using 10.4.4/5 installation, X11 and xcode tools from 10.4.3...
any help on that.. am I doing something wrong? ^_^

Are you logged in the terminal as root? i.e. sudo -s <password> or sudo nano info.plist should do

you can do this editing without terminal by the way just find the kext </System/Library/Extensions/ right click on the kext then choose show package contents
drag the info.plist to the desktop and edit using textedit save the changes made then drag the info.plist back into the location it's from finally repair disk permissions with disk utility and reboot

weird, something must be wrong with your installation if you don't have nano...

Try pico instead of nano, both are the same program.

I use sudo -s but no nano no pico command... I use the textedit though but I couldn't find the information on the wiki about the nvdia Audio ac'97, but if the textedit it's the same I'll work it out...

ok, try this: instead of sudo -s type sudo su
and instead of nano or pico type /usr/bin/nano

TextEdit shoud do it, but since you run as user you can not save it, unless you save it in another place like desktop, then move it to the original directory

i read in macosxhints about nano/pico dissappearing. pico won't work w'out nano since pico is symlinked to nano. maybe this helps http://store.apple.c...41&nclm=Macmini
