I installed this kext on my fresh PC EFI v9 Retail 10.5.6 DVD install to recognize my PS/2 Keyboard along with my USB Mouse, but nothing happened. After the neat Welcome video it still said to connect my keyboard. My mouse is OK but my keyboard is down.

Tried everything but I still can't explain how my kalyway 10.5.4 install works with these

I am very new to the osx86 project and I unloaded the ApplePS2Controller.kext and so now my keyboard and trackpad dont work. How do i type the kext load command. Also, the Terminal only works on the install CD so how can i copy that over. Thanks.


You could use the keyboard viewer

You activate it in System preferences>International

Comon people... i know you better then this...
I have the same Prob: PS/2 Keyboard ( not working ) + USB Mouse ( working ), working on OS 10.5.6.

I've done EVERYTHING that you people wrote:
1. downloaded patch and installed using OSx86Tool &repair permision.
2. i've Deleted the mouse&pad kext from within ApplePS2controller.kext in the extension folder.
3. I've done all the above IN SAFE MODE ! ( -f switch )

so.. any other ides ?
2 more things:
1. i have currentlly connected USB Keyboard With the PS/2 keyboard - does that a problem ?
2. i have connected ONLY ONCE PS/2 mouse into my mobo - but since then i have done million restarts, appleps2controller install & loading safe mode twice...


HELP ME PLEASE !!!!!!!! it's like Leopard become LeoHARD!

I just found out that ApplePS2Controller.kext somehow is related with AppleACPIPlatform.kext
I found and used old AppleACPIPlatform.kext (in my kext backups) and now my Lenovo R60 ThinkPad keyboard & touchpad & trackpoint IS WORKING!!! (Leo 10.5.6) :D

Could be that this AppleACPIPlatform have some issues or isn't so functional as new ones. I don't know. May be somebody can analyze that and find mistake in new AppleACPIPlatform.

I have grabbed the Apple open source driver for PS/2 keyboards, mice and trackpads. I fixed it to build and run with the latest Xcode and moved headers so it would be self-contained. I still haven't fixed the build so all 4 kexts are automatically combined, but this is easy enough to work around. All are combined now, you still must build all 4 projects.

I have added more startup code to make it less likely to fail to load. I would say is fails about 50% as often as before - leave the kextunload/kextload hack in for now. Working much better, no failures on keyboard in 10 tries.

The source is covered by APSL, so modifying it is legal and here is the source posted to comply with that license.

Edit: 31 July 2006 - Updated kext and source. The keyboard now works without a mouse. More reliable, the kernel debug option is now off.

Ok, so what ApplePS2Controller.kext did you use with that? Can you provide a link to that as well?

how to install this with no working keyboard?

Boot with:
-x -s -v

*Then only IF you have installed the VoodooPS2Controller installer in the past:
From single usermode terminal, mount read/write:
mount -uw /

Manually copy VoodooPS2Controller.kext to the /System/Library/Extensions/ folder:
cp -r [path]/VoodooPS2Controller.kext /System/Library/Extensions/

Delete ApplePS2Nub.kext, ApplePS2Controller.kext and Extensions.mkext if they excist.
rm -r /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Nub.kext
rm -r /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext
rm -r /System/Library/Extensions.mkext

Reboot:
reboot

*Else if never installed Voodoo2PS2Controller
Copy the original ApplePS2Nub.kext and ApplePS2Controller.kext to Extensions
cp -r [path]/ApplePS2Nub.kext /System/Library/Extensions/
cp -r [path]/ApplePS2Cotnroller.kext /System/Library/Extensions/

Clear Extensions cache (if it exsist):
rm -r /System/Library/Extentions.mkext

Reboot:
reboot

Just installed the 10.5.8 update and my Touchpad (Trackpad) and Keyboard doesn't work on my Laptop. I upgraded from iDeneb v1.4 (10.5.6) and my touchpad and keyboard was working fine before i upgraded.

I have an Acer Aspire 5310 Laptop.
