First Boot= 15min atleast with JaS 10.5.4 and boot-132 atleast on my and nickhes PC

2 boot after install = 10-20min

3 boot to 1million = 7-10 sec

and choose StageXnu kernel or sleep 9.2 and after that change to Voodoo 9.4 or 9.5 they work alot better and faster then other kernel

Okay, here is a progress report.

I got my Keyboard & Mouse working after installing the ApplePS2Controller, so thanks for the hint!

Fixed Network is working, Wireless still troubles me. Bootup time is 5 minutes, each and every time!

I don't know what it is with the bootup time, that is really annoying, what also is annoying that X11 doesn't work. I did install it, but when I try to launch it, it immediately fails.

So right now my prio #1 is bootup, then #2 X11. After that I'll try to get the Atheros working. By the way - why did you install that extra audio driver? Audio works for me a-ok after the install and when I install the other package named above my system won't boot...



Any Ideas about anything named above? Would be greatly appreciated...

Okay, let's see. Another half day of work done.

I learned that it is important to install your drivers, even if you know you're not going to use the devices. I know now why my laptop kept hanging for 5 minutes at this point:

configd[55]: InterfaceNamer: timed out waiting for IOKit to quiesce

I needed to install the Cardbus drivers, which are linked to on the first page.

I also got the Atheros to work, but I needed the old Tiger drivers for this, they can be found here.

Now I'll see if I can find an X11 package and see if I can get it to work - after that I'll try and see what I can do about the QE/CI support for the ATI Mobility Radeon.

More updates. I broke the Atheros again by doing the AirPort update from the AppleSoftwareUpdate. I tried to re-install the drivers, but it doesn't help. ;( I guess I have to re-install some kexts from the install disc - I just don't know which yet.

The X11 package that came with the JaS 10.5.4 was br0ken for me, kept crashing as soon as I launched it. I installed the X11 package from here and that did the trick. Yay!

Getting rid of the Mouse tearing artifacts with the Radeon still works as smooth as it did on Tiger, just make use of this nifty trick.

So far so good... I'll keep on working.

As written above, I managed to take care of all that and I am pretty much settled in. But I am beginning to see how much I am missing the QE/CI. No movies work, no multimedia... well I think I should look into that.

Ok, I enabled QuarzGL and it works as the system profiler states. Sill no movies with VLC though - even if I tell it to use the Quarz output...

Hrm, {censored} - we really need the QE and CI stuff.

Thank you very much for all of your guys help, I was able to intall JaS 10.5.4 on my NC 6000. I am a completely newbie and have takend a few days to read through and learn. I got the keyboard, mouse, audio working using the link at top but could not get the wirelss and ethernet to work. I install both of the .kext but still nothing.

I tired to do "write lspci" but it said lspci is not logged in.

A ubuntu disc is always good to have and the lspci is a linux command which shows you all your hardware specs

Hi,
I just installed JaS 10.5.4.
The installation went smooth. I only selected stageXNU, AC97 drivers. After the first boot, now I see a grey screen with Apple logo and some round progress bars where after a while some square, probably a mouse pointer. I'm using a USB mouse, so probably that's not a mouse pointer. I have waited 50 mintues now on this screen. Don't know what's wrong.

Well I waited for one hour and 30 minutes and then I got bored so I shut down laptop and went to sleep as it was already 6 in the morning. Of course I had many restarts to see if restarting could solve the problem.
System has 2Gb RAM and standard processor and 250GB HD, so I think it should boot. May be I will have to choose a different kernel at startup. How do I choose another Kernel? or any body to help with the present scenario.



thanks

still waiting for the root device

after the lines

Finally!!!!!! I got it working now!!!!! So glad to see the nice welcome video :-D....

Presently I don't have a USB keyboard so I'm stuck at that stage. But I think I'll get that keyboard from office in some days. I have that keyboard support driver downloaded, I only don't know how to install. (I'm actually first time user of MAC with no experience).

I just did a re-installation and I'm going to post the steps I took from start till now.

DVD: JaS.OSx86.10.5.4.Client.Server.Intel.SSE2.SSE3.iso

1-Kept the BIOS at default settings
2-Installed OSx86:
a- Erased the drive using disk utility
b- customized the installation and chose only: StageXNU, AC97 Audio, ICH and PIIX controller, Artheros Wireless adapter (All thanks to Nick14).
c- Installation took around 25 minutes.
d-Rebooted the computer
3-Put the Gparted Live CD
a-Started with default settings
b-All the devices took a little time to show, once they did, I chose the Windows partition and right-clicked and selected 'Flags' and chose "boot"
c-exit (once the devices re-loaded after the change of configurations)
d-Rebooted
4-Computer booted to Windows Xp(that's what I already had)
a- edited boot.ini file and put Chain0 file in C: drive (the windows drive)
b-rebooted
5-choose OSX to boot
a- chose the options -v -f
b- booting took 10 minutes to finish and then the all awaited welcome video started :-D
c- right now it's stuck at "Before You Begin" asking me to connect USB keyboard which I don't have :-(

All the above procedure has been described in detail in Wiki, and crucial help from Nick14, I just made myself happy :-)


So what about this keyboard and touchpad thing? How do I install the drivers?

Thanks

EDIT: I meant I only wanted to know how to install these drivers. I have this ApplePS2Controller.zip downloaded.
Thanks
