ryuu123, thank you for your work.

Could tell, do I need some other files than in your last archive?
Because using an USB-stick installation of Snow i get this screen:


it seems none of my files is exist.

1. Does USB-stick:/Extra/Extensions.mkext exist?
2. using chameleon 2 rc 3?

Extract my archie and copy all files to USB-stick's root.

Thanks for all the help ryuu123!

I hate to be a complete n00b, but could you please email me at ctjameson@gmail.com and explain a little bit more along the lines of what im going to have to do to get this going. Also, my macbook is acting funny with any mac os x install disc (macbook restore disc, retail leo disc, snow leo disc), so i really just need a little help. Just shoot me an email when you get some free time with a simple step by step for snow leo.

Thanks so much guys. I love the insanelymac community.

Thank you for your great work ryuu!!

Installing SL was much easier than Leopard.

1. Being a CDN Version, I've noticed that keyboard mapping got changed to Japanese Layout. Would you be able to help us how to recondition? (Has VOODOO PS2 Keyboard changed?)

2. Thx for the HDA Patch, I'll compile it as soon as I get back from work.

I've installed to non-GUID partition in order to save the recovery partition. Using rest of the partition for SL (no win, who needs em?)

Griff, Make a bootable USB using Disk Utility. (Do not make seperate partitions. I've created my Leopard USB installation by seperating into two partitions, where first part contain only the Chameleon. I failed this attempt and had to use single partition.)
Install Chameleon manually. (Tried RC2 installer but did not work). README file has good instructions, run the command from the folder where Chameleon binaries are stored.

Open Ryuu's zip and copy over entire content. Use terminal to overwrite Boot file. Files under System folder can be placed by mouse drag. (add the file onto the existing System folder).

Copy over modified OSInstall.mpkg. Netkas has proper instructions. (It's not just one file to overwrite).

Update: I've FAILed keyboard.

Success!

I used my macbook to install Snow Leopard onto a USB Drive and installed Chameleon 2 RC3. After that, i replaced boot file and replaced all files from ryuu's .zip. Plugged it into the Vaio, and it worked flawlessly. The keyboard is even right. I guess mine is a little different. Anyways, I have absoloutely no clue how to recompile anything, so once someone can do that, Everything on the thing works that i use. It also is faster than any OS I have used on the device and i have a 1.33 GHz Atom.

Has anyone gotten the GMA500 working correctly yet? I have the right resolution, but its really laggy and stuff. Youtube works great, but regular videos in Quicktime are very laggy. VLC doesn't like videos at all, though.

If someone can get the GMA500 and the audio working and show me how to do it all, there may be a little bit of paypal donation involved.

Thanks everyone!

EDIT: About This Mac relaunches Finder every time i try to use it. Any idea why? Something i did or the computer?

- replace boot to Chameleon2 rc3
- replace VoodooPower to VoodooPoewerMini
- add OpenHaltRestart
- add VoodooHDA
- modify com.apple.Boot.plist
- etc

I'm using JP model so keymap is JIS, right.
want use some ohtner keymap, replace

Extra/Extensions1/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext

to comfortable one and run Extra/extra.sh and cross your fingers and reboot.

If VoodooHDA doesn't load, delete /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext

BTW...

we should move to SL subforum?

Okay. So I have everything working like it should except for the VoodooHDA.kext not working, I don't know what to do with OpenHaltRestart, and I have no clue what to add to the .plist. Also, does sleep supposed to work? It doesnt really work on mine.

Hi,

GMA500 is still working without QE/QI support.
(movie playback is high cpu load)

and still have some defects.
- Don't sleep( can someone try SleepEnabler.kext?)
- Preview.app can't show JPEG Image.
- About This Mac crushes
(- no WWAN power on method)
- Easy install guide

--
once you can boot from usb stick,
copy usbstick to internal hdd's partition using "Disk Utility" or ditto
is easy way to install internal HDD.

Is there something that I am not doing right for my sound to not work or could it be that i have a different audio chipset that what you have? I have a VGN-P530H. I don't know exactly what audio device i have. Can someone explain i little more in detail exactly what i have to do to edit the com.apple.Boot.plist?

Thanks for all the help guys. Couldn't have done it without you!

Ryu --

Thanks for all your help. Can you post the source code for VaioPEnabler and GMA500 - I'd like to look at porting the Linux Poulsbo driver over to the Vaio P -- I don't think we'll get QE/QI, but maybe we can have decent video playback...

Thanks,

Jeffrey

Hi, here you are

Attached File  vaiopsrc0912.tar.gz   76.19KB   214 downloads

p.s.

Xserver-psb don't have machine code.
you should look at kernel-module drm.

and OSX side
http://forum.insanel...t...st&id=34045
is useful.

So I just want to say thanks to all you guys who got all of the kexts and things to get my vaio running snow leopard! I:m so glad that i dont have to run windows. Not to mention that it runs quicker than any other OS that i have installed. I love the Insanely Mac scene.

The only things that would make this better would be full GPU support, sleep, and about this mac to work.

I was wondering if anyone knows how to change the network identity of the Vaio to something like a macbook air or something like that. I got the local icon to show the macbook air, but when i see it in bonjour shares on my macbook, its shows as "mac server" with a cinema display as the icon.

Also I have no clue where to get the correct keymap for a US keyboard.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey there guys,

First of all big props to ryuu123!

I've been reading through this thread and it seems you guys have it figured out!

ryuu123, I was wondering - you should make a step by step guide on installing OS X (10.5/10.6) on the Sony Vaio P.

I have the Vaio P P688E/Q and would be very cool to have OS X running on it.

Are there any differences between the my version and the VGN-P90HS?

I'd be willing to make a Paypal donation for a working guide!

Thanks.

I'm going to have to agree. I can let a few paypal bucks go for a good guide. The biggest thing I've been trying to do lately is making a separate EFI partition so that I have the virgin install on the separate partition. If you could make a seperate guide or an addition to the normal guide to be able to have the EFI boot partition take care of all of the hacks. The biggest thing i can't get it to do is have the audio patched externally (not directly into the system).

Are you guys getting anywhere with the GMA 500? Is it really awful to use without QE/QI?
Thanks

It's much more faster than running windows family (And that includes 7 after installing utils), that has GMA500 driver.

Since I've got working Wifi with Snow, I no longer needed for any second operating systems.

In terms of performance, I've been actually using the P for some light coding. Yes it's slow, but fast enough for me. (I might even consider ssd upgrade once sleep and misc, issues are fixed).

Thanks you for your answer. Do you guys reckon you will get it fully working (The GMA 500), because i really want to buy the Asus EEE 1101Ha, but it has a GMA 500, i haven't seen anyone booting this hack up yet.
Thanks in adance
