I have a problem that the keyboard does not repeat the keys, if I keep pressing them.
Is there any fix for this issue?

Installed OSX on my Acer Extensa 2300 series (pretty old lappy) today, this kext fixed my keyboard, however only momentarily and then it randomly stops again. meh


Now on the to do list: wifi (pcmcia ralink), onboard lan, touchpad mouse, full screen resolution.

I`ll recomend you to visit this page(solution almost all problem)
Usefull files

Your touchpad stop working because you rename ApplePS2Trackpad.kext->ApplePS2Trackpad.kext.bak and it doesn`t loaded. Try command kextstat in terminal. If it didn`t show you`d rename this kext to original name ApplePS2Trackpad.kext and type kextload /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Trackpad.kext.


Maybe you use conflict driver then try ALPS driver(it helped me)

Hi!

I also tried this with my Asus A8N-Sli, using a PS2-Keyboard from Logitech: no success.

Since I don't have a USB-Keyboard I tried it with the Windows-Macdrive method, overwrote the ApplePS2 Kexts, renamed the trackpad and the mouse kexts and booted natively. I can use the keyboard during boot (he prints the keys), but after starting the graphical interface, it doesnn't work anymore.

TubGirlAMD1048 release.

I couldn't try it with the JaS release yet, because I can't integrate the nforce4sata into the dvd (some permission error {censored}).

I'm still left in the dark here...I noticed my FN or function keys don't work at all with my setup (gateway mx6214).

Keyboard/touchpad don't respond no matter what.

Is my PS/2 bus not being detected by my OSX 10.4.8 jas?

My native notebook keyboard did not work "out of the box".

I downloaded ApplePS2 driver source from Apple's developer site, hacked them a little (added self-test to keyboard enabling method) and my notebook's keyboard (notebook: LG LS50, Centrino (SSE2 only), ATI Radeon M10 (9600)) works almost perfect.

I give no guarantee, that it'll work with your's specific keyboard, but you can try. May be I'll continue to develop this driver. I'm totally newbie to MacOSX developing, so...

How to install:

1. download
2. unzip
3. copy it to /System/Library/Extensions (something like "cp -R ApplePS2Controller.kext /System/Library/Extensions/" in terminal)
4. modify owner (something like "chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext" in terminal)

before entering commands in terminal, switch to superuser mode ("su", press enter and enter password)

Reboot, unplug USB keyboard and enjoy (if you can).

Hello!

I have got a lg S1-P151B! Do you think can will work for me?
Many thanks

Hi, I did it, it works awesome and I'm going to gave you step by step Instruction (Del Inspiron 2650)
Native Keyboard and TauchPad Works Flowless :D

1) Go to HardDisk>Applications>Utilities> (and turn on terminal)
2) (Tupe in Terminal) sundo nano /etc/rc (Push Enter)
3)(It Will Ask you Password: and type in your user pasword and push ENTER)
4)(It Will open rc file and navigation menu on the bottom, push CONTROL+V untill you go to the and of the fille)
5) (Betwan) if [ "${VerboseFlag}" != "-v" ]; then
/usr/libexec/WaitingForLoginWindow
fi


(Line and) exit0 (line insert this code:)

kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePS2Keyboard.kext
kextload /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePS2Keyboard.kext

6)(Push CONTROL+O, to activate saving potion, Push CONTROL+T, to activate "save to file option")
7)(navigate down and right in to a fille list untill you find "rc" file, get cursor on top of it and push enter, it'll save changes)
8)(Push Control+X, to exite rc fille)
9)(Tupe in exit in terminal, close terminal and reboot)

Hopefully itll be work
good luck.


/etc/rc method worked for me.
Desktop computer with usb mouse and ps/2 keyboard.

used a usb keyboard to make these changes.

needs some testing, though, i hope it won't freeze after 10 mins :thumbsup_anim:

Well, a day passed. Driver works normally, without any problems (I work with another drivers now, so I do reboot often and so on). Even display backlight keys works (combinations with Fn key) and volume button works.

If anybody is interested - I've updated one more driver. PCCard now works for me. It's a Texas Instruments chipset. As I remember, TI7620. If anybody needs this updated driver, I can upload it here.


Please Bavaev Can you pass me the kext PS2Controller and PCCard? Cheers

LG S1-P151B
