Hello moly82
Thanks for your instructions, now that works great. Only a question: Do you know how to acces to the LeoHazard install DVD options? Default options are: 64 bit EFI, 64 bit kernel boot, 32 bit processor and 32 bit kernel. I'd like to modify the kernel boot and efi to 32 bit (typing -v arch=i386 before installation) but access with pf8 doesn't work.

thanks



hi, I dunno exactly what you mean.. also because I'm pretty sure I'm running 32bit without having done anything special, I've just installed OSX as I wrote above..

if I type uname -a in a terminal I get:

Darwin xxx.local 10.6.0 Darwin Kernel Version 10.6.0: Wed Nov 10 18:13:17 PST 2010; root:xnu-1504.9.26~3/RELEASE_I386 i386

the "i386" at the end means I'm on 32bit AFAIK..

by the way if you want to be sure about that I think you could just add "arch=i386" and "-v" in your "/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist" file.. "kernel flags" section..

mine is like this right now:

<key>Kernel</key>
<string>mach_kernel</string>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string></string>
<key>Wake</key>
<string>no</string>
<key>Timeout</key>
<string>1</string>



bye!

Hi,
Thanks, I've the same information as you. But I don't now why an application named Startup Mode Selector says: 64 bit EFI, 64 bit Kernel boot mode, 32 bit processor and 32 bit kernel. Probably it hasn't any relevance.

P.S. I suppose you have a 901 XP because you says that all runs ok, haven't you? and I can't find Mac drivers for my Linux webcam.

bye

Hi! This is my first post and I have a pretty weird question! When you say the retail version do you mean the upgrade or the box set? Thanks!

I got a "900A" from woot a couple of years ago. This is the one that doesn't have a camera and has a 1.6GHz Atom (more like a 901HA, I guess than the usual 900A). I put in 2GB of memory and a 32GB flash drive. It's been happily running Easy Peasy, but I'd much rather have OS X on it.

Tried this guide verbatim and Chameleon starts up, but OS X panics early in the boot process. I assume it's a bad driver of some sort, but I'm not sure which one. Can someone with this version of the 900A tell me which extensions they're using and avoiding?

Hello,
I hope someone can help me here as I couldn't find any answer to my question so far.
I decided two weeks ago to install OSX on my mothers EeePC 901. Everything worked fine a part from WiFi. I install the Realtek Utility Drivers and was able, using the utility, to connect to my WiFi but wasn't able to use it since OSX didn't register the adapter. It would just show me two Ethernet Adapters, where one is working once I plug in a cable.

I then decided to order an Airport card from ebay for around 25 € (http://www.ebay.at/i...#ht_4564wt_1163 ) which arrived yesterday. Unfortunately nothing changed. OSX doesn't find any airport adapter whatsoever.

Any ideas?

A part from that, its all fine, its a bit slow though, but should be far enough for a little bit of surfing.

thanks in advance,

stivi

Look at the last line. It's the CPU Power management kext. Did you install that yourself? What did you use to install it? Did you repair disk permissions after? What OS are you trying to run? You need to provide full details if you want help...
