I am using the custom Power Managment Bundle posted on the previous page and when I hit the lid button, my Inspirion 8600 attempts to sleep which causes a locked which I can only get out of by holding down the power button. The same result can be seen by going to the Apple icon on the taskbar and then down to sleep. With the original Power Management Bundle, it locks just the same.

Anyone know how to fix this problem?...Pretty much renders the laptop useless for anything remotely mobile!

thank you so much arick2000!

i finally booted my inspiron 8600 using the 10.4.5 universal release with 1920x1200 QE/CI. I could not get the Callisto Build 008 drivers to behave, so I am using the Callisto 003 drivers. I really appreciate your helpfulness and your guide. Thank you so much.

I was having that same problem with it locking up when the lid was closed. There is a solution!!! It's called insomnia and it prevents the machine from ever trying to sleep. It works great, I've been using if for a month. The solution is in this thread:
http://forum.osx86pr...showtopic=13830
Look at the last post to get Insomnia.zip rather than Insomnia.kext.zip

Hmm I didn't do anything special. Put the DVD in, load up VLC, go to File -> Open Disc, then OK. Plays just fine for me!

it might be because you dont have CI/QE enabled ... and thats because CI/QE dont work yet for nVidia cards. slithy probabaly has an ATI card like me. Although the built in DVD player does give me problems, VLC works alright. nVidia drivers should be released soon, and then it should work.

Yeah I have an ATI Radeon 9600 Pro Turbo in my laptop. For the first time, having an ATI card is good except for the mouse pointer artifacting.

VLC works fine, but the bult-in dvd player pretty much locked up the OS when I put a DVD in.

Use 003 ... 008 doesnt work. And remember to follow the FAQ in the callisto documentation.

I only have access to JaS 10.4.6 and my laptop is an Inspiron 6000. Am I S.O.L. on this because of the 10.4.6? can anyone please PM me even a hint where I can find the Myzar 10.4.5? is it that necessary to have the older version? Is my laptop too different from the 8600?

Specs:
Inspiron 6000
Intel Pentium M 2.0 Ghz
1GB RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon x300
Intel PRO Wireless 2200BG
Sigmatel C-Major Audio

Thanks in advance for any help.

The processor doesnt matter, but the video card does. Dont use the higher reslution trick for your card. You need these drivers: http://macvidia.starchaser.org/

And if you have a intel wireless card it wont work, just as mine did not work

-------------------------------
cgtx32:
For the higher resolution hack you NEED 10.4.5 ati drivers. send me your email in a pm and ill send them to you. make sure its gmail though, or something that can accept large files. (not hotmail)



I have a Dell 8600 with Nvidia FxGo5200 card. I tried the MacVidia_beta2_1_installer but no luck for the higher resolution. I tried the first suggestion on this page too with no luck (I changed it to my Device ID which is 0324): http://macvidia.star...-fx-5200-a.html

Still a little confused on what to try now? Edit: I realize I asked a stupid question about Nvidia card and then asking wether I need the ATI drivers..doh!

Can you give some feedback on how you got the macvida drivers to work on the FxGo5200 card? Which build/version? And any other details. I tried MacVidia_beta2_1_installer but no change. Thanks

I couldnt get the built in wireless to work, but using the D-Link AirPlus DWL-G650, wireless worked no problem


Hey Rick, can you shed some light on how your got the D-Link AirPlus DWL-G650 working? Thanks

I can't help you with the GeForce5200 since I don't have one, and as for the D-Link Card, I didn't do anything to make it work. I just pluged it in and it worked.
