Ahh...I forgot mention.

I made "boot" more *GENERIC*,so changed default to 1024x768 from 1600x768.

New boot needs an option "Graphics Mode"="1600x768x32" as below.

in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist

<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>cpus=1 "Graphics Mode"="1600x768x32"</string>

or

<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1600x768x32</string>
.

thx :hysterical:


hy
question is .. due!
if I use chamel 2.0 .. then is right to put graphics mode.. or is enough to put the size in the Extra/themes folder?
bye

How do I use 1280x800?

Hi, I am testing my Fujitsu U820 with pcifix, so cool it works! (same GMA500 like Viao P has)
But only at 1024x768

The native is 1280x800, I have tried specify it in the plist file/command line, no luck. Is there a way to get around? Thanks.

@saiyan-jin
My P does't have WWAN module,so consult google :-p
google says it's "GlobeTrotter MO40x" "Option Wireless Technology GTM382"
Consult google "GTM382 OSX86"

@lilyl
What bootloader you use?
In VESA compatible mode framebuffer init is part of bootloader's work.
Try my boot and specify "Graphics Mode".

if still not work, type on boot prompt "?video".
the list shown is the mode you can use.

i installed it - but i have no idea what it should do :D
the differences i found after i installed your kext:
- the system profiler says that i have a loaded kext for my gma 500 with 64 mb vram - that was obvious :D
- the plist in the kext says something with backlight


thanks! :D

I'd like to try it on my U820, how do I use it? If I remove PCIfix, it won't boot into graphics, if I keep them both, I don't see GMA500FB has any effects...
Thanks.

ryuu123 posted a way to install mac os on the p without loosing the windows partition - see post 10.
what have you tried so far - is there a step where you need help?
if you have access to a "real" mac, try the usb method (see post 11) - it's the easiest - but also the slowest way.

with the usb method is there anyway to actually install leopard permanently ?
my questions would be what would he mean by (be careful copied files uid/gid)?
I am good with steps 1-7, I get lost on exactly how to follow 8 on

Thanks for any help

hi,
meant be careful with the setting of user and group-ids of files.

hint to step 8: http://rapidshare.co...stall.mpkg.html maybe this will help you :(
you need to replace the osinstall.mpkg file because the original install won't let you install mac os on a MBR partitioned harddisk.

to be honest - i have no idea how he replaced the files before rebooting.
but you could use the terminal from the installer to copy the kexts to your installed leopard extensions folder.

i did it with the finder using a installed mac os on the usb flash drive - i am lazy :(

I will give it another try, it does seem complicated... is there any other way to install from the usb method you described to the hard drive I dont particularly care to have vista/xp installed only osx..

do you have a "real" you could use? it would make thinks a lot easier.

installing os x on a vaio p is easy if you done it once.


btw: dont forget to create recovery disks of your vaio p before deleting all partitions.
