Which wireless card do you have? If it is the Intel 3945PRO a/b/g it will not work. You can replace this with the dell 1390 which is also internal and should work out of the box with 10.4.8.

Glad to hear everything is working OK. No, I have not tried the dual monitor Natit yet. Please let me know if it works for you.

Good to hear you got your airport extreme working! Did you ever get QE/CI?

I wonder if your motherboard has a different audio chip than the geforce 7400GO board does that I have. Have you tried the newest appleHDA patcher (v1.15)? It can be found HERE.

Please update for everyone if you come up with a solution.

Ok, so i've reformatted and reinstalled a few more times. lol... i'm sure to get it right if i do it just a few more times maybe.

so this time around seems like everything is working in good order (except for speakers).

During the custom install, i chose the Intel 900 for video and QE/CI is enabled.
the headphone jacks seem to work when i choose the sigmatel audio option as you suggested in the writeup.

I'll try the latest patcher when i get home. i really hope it'll work. other than that, everything is working fabulously.

i'll update whether the new patcher worked for me or not.

oh and by the way... my friend is the one that bought the 1390 cards for us. unfortunately his vaio does not that that card. so if anybody needs the dell intel pro 1390 internal wifi card.... drop me a line.

In regards to the audio, perhaps you can post your situation in the appleHDA patch thread.

As for the wifi, how exactly is it not working? You have the internal Dell 1390, is this correct?

When I was purchasing my 1390, I noticed that there were two different versions (different manufacturer numbers or revisions). I will find out what version mine is and let you know how to check yours.

Mine is Rev A01 (posted on label) Broadcom Based - BCM4311KFBG.

Also, if you look on eBay you'll notice that there are two internal 1390 types: pc559 (the one I bought) and YH774.

I have no idea if the second part means anything, or how to check for that.

appleHDA patch would crash when running Semthex kernel, type uname -a in the terminal to check what kernel you're running.
Download DaemonES or Mifki kernels
Drop kernel in the root, give it another name, at boot press F8 and type the new name.
type uname -a in terminal to make sure, now use the Taruga's patcher, reboot.

hi all!

new updates from my end:

i did that trick mentioned by turk101 and the airport is working very nicely now.

to test out all possibilities, i tried the following...

I restarted into OSX a few times.
Then restarted into windows.
Restarted back into OSX.
Restarted back into windows, hibernated, then booted into OSX.

Airport worked in all instances.

I have rev A03. So i guess if you have A03 then you have to put in the 1390 internal card after you are done doing the install.

i checked my kernel version as suggested by mutis and got the following:



Darwin username-computer.local 8.8.1 Darwin Kernel Version 8.8.1: Sat Dec 9 2:18:27 AZ0T 2006; semthex:/nebukadnezar/BUILD/obj/RELEASE_I386 i386 i386



so i guess i do have the semthex. where do i go about downloading

new update:

i got a hold of the mifki kernel file: mach_kernel.mifki

loaded it up as suggested by mutis.

speakers work now.

finally, glad to have a somewhat fully functioning hackintosh

Hello all,

First of all, I'd like to say I'm a total noob to the whole OSx86 scene, but I stumbled across this guide a week after I just received my new (refurbished) m1210. Talk about good timing =)

Anyways, the Jas 10.4.8 SSE3 ONLY... mifki? seemed to be a little hard to find.
I guess there are new Jas releases such as the SSE2 and SSE3 version, and that version that is patched.

I wasn't sure which one to try, so I've just started with the SSE2+3 non patched version. So far after using seadonkey's guide, I've gotten everything working minus the speakers and wireless (1390 should arrive anyday $6 on ebay).

On the Jas SSE2+3 non patched version, there was no option for the "combo update", and there was a box for the Natit. I decided "what the heck" and checked the option for Natit. Of course, after I got most things working, curiosity killed the cat, and I said to myself, maybe the version I downloaded is newer... Well, after installing the downloaded version on top of the version that came with the DVD, chaos ensued. Everytime I reboot, my screen rotates 90 degrees clockwise, I'm glad I can laugh at myself about this, but as a little reminder to others who might be thinking this... don't do it, heh

Thanks again for the time you put in Seadonkey, I'll try to be back with an update soon

Alf

triple booting Ubuntu, Vista, and OSX ;)
