Hello, this is my first post, i hope you can help me!
I installed iportable snow leopard 10.6.2 on my acer aspire one d255e netbook with
intel atom n450 single core cpu and a intel gma3150 gpu.
The system runs just fine out of the box, but the graphics are stuck at 800x600!
I also tried to install netbookinstaller from version 0.8.3rc1 to 0.8.5pre with the result that the screen resolution seems to be fine BUT the netbook only boots to a blue screen were i can move the cursor around but besides that behaviour nothing else happens.

So please, help me! ;)

I got the graphics working and wifi too!

Wrote the boot arguments on my Powermac G5 quad to the apple.boot.plist.

So what's your prefered language?
I just edited the boot.plist with Graphics Enabler "yes" and Graphics Mode 1024x600x32 string.
And i installed gma3150.zip from merklort.
Wifi works cause of a modified kext i installed with kexthelper.

Gut, was genau hast du gemacht um dein WiFi zum laufen zu bringen, hab ich nicht ganz verstanden :)

Just use the following to get your wifi working: http://www.insanelym...dpost&p=1509229

And remember, there's no 3150.kext, it's just a hack to get the resolution fixed.
Still no QE/CI
