I have installed OSX 10.5.5 on my Acer Aspire 5680 notebook.
Got most of it working using drivers from this forum, still looking for,

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 SE PCI Express (Not that botherd about dual monitor, but would like to be able to play video files)
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG (or Netgear WPN111)
Intel Gigabit Ethernet
5 in 1 Card Reader
Acer Orbicam
volume / media buttons.

Edit: Unable to use bluetooth to connect to internet, once paired it disables bluetooth and won't enable till i remove the pairing.

Thanks
Craig

Hello,

first of all. The following drivers are in made (but i dont think they will finish soon!):

Intel 3945 bgn - better you replace this card with an Dell 1390 or 1490.

The Mediabuttons and the card reader wont work. This is a fact. Maybe someone is getting those to work, but not in near future i think.

The rest should be possible, but at the moment, i dont know how.

possible solution is:
1) use a miniPCi wifi card for network and 3945 miniPCIe for disable bios whitelist
2) patch bios for work whit other wifi card
