From the original article (that I apparently am not allowed to link to) at the Chameleon site...


Features
- No need for ACPIPS2Nub. Delete it before installing this or you'll get a kernel panic – Loadable from /Extra/Extensions.mkext – 102-key keyboard support – support for mixed usb/ps2 configurations – Resolution fix for PS2mouse (set ForceDefaultResolution to true in Contents/Plugins/VoodooPS2Mouse.kext/Info.plist to activate) – Support for scrolling on ALPS (untested) – Support for Sentelic touchpad (untested) – Advanced Synaptics touchpad. All kinds of scrolling known to humanity including multi-finger and side scrolling


Download
You can get the installer package here: VoodooPS2Controller-0.98-installer.pkg


Installation
Just install as any kext with kexthelper or add it to /Extra/Extensions.mkext


Configuration
Many features may be controlled using Apples Preference Pane
For more configuration you may want to have a look at
Contents/Plugins/VoodooPS2Trackpad.kext/Info.plist
and at IOKitPersonalities/Synaptics Touchpad/Configuration node.
The same settings are also available through dedicated panel (optional)

I just installed this on my system and, so far, works great! I use Chameleon v2rc1 to boot with kext in /Extra/extensions.mkext. I removed ApplePS2Controller and PS2nub, inserted VoodooPS2Crontroller, remade the mkext and rebooted the system. All is good. Without the patched PS2Controller and PS2nub the system would boot but the mouse/keyboard were inop. So, I know VoodooPS2Controller works :unsure:

Many thanks!

Oh, this is nice. Too bad I got rid of my reliance of PS/2 when I bought my Apple Aluminum Slim Keyboard and Mighty Mouse.

I booted a couple of times on single user mode but the keyboard seems to work fine for me....

make sure you remove :
/System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPlatform.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ACPIPS2Nub.kext
/System/Library/Extensions/AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext
/System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext

I made the mistake of leaving the first one, thus the errors

Dont matter what I do, I still getting kernel panics =/
I already formated 5 times and try it 5 times, always kernel panics ><

Im sure it should work fine, not sure what Im doing wrong...

1.- Removed "ApplePS2Controller.kext" and "ACPIPS2Nub.kext"
2.- Install "VoodooPS2Controller" using the self installer application from the official site.
3.- Repair permissions.
4.- Reboot
5.- Kernel Panic

Did the steps you took include reboot with kernel flag "-f" to prevent using the cached kext in the Extensions.mkext file? If not, you could still be loading the old apple kext even though you deleted them.
