There are a bunch of us who are stuck when it comes to our Presario laptop (C300 and C500). So far, installing JaS Mac OS X 10.4.8 AMD Intel SSE2 SSE3 PPF1 works great. Everything is working great except the following:
The audio: Conexant High Definition Audio needs SkippyRetard's driver.
The modem: HDAUDIO Soft Data Fax Modem with SmartCP is not working.
The wireless NIC: Broadcom 4311 802.11b/g is not working. This is the biggest headache of them all because not having networking makes the computer almost useless these days.
The computer won't sleep - sleep will reboot computer
The computer won't shutdown correctly - will go to the press and hold power button screen, but I believe that's related to the wireless not working because of the following panic:
Kernel loadable modules in backtrace (with dependencies):com.apple.driver.AirPortBrcm43xx(203.2)@01fb37000dependency: com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily(1.51)@0x1ea5e000dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily(2.1)@0x1b360000dependency: com.apple.iokit.IO80211Family(140.4)@0x1eb68000com.apple.iokit.IO80211Family(140.4)@0x1eb68000dependency: com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily(1.51)@0x1ea5e000dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily(2.1)@0x1b360000Kernel version:Darwin Kernel Version 8.8.1: Sat Dec 9 22:18:27 AZOT 2006; semthex:/nebukadnezar/BUILD/obj/RELEASE_I386
Many of us have been following the simple Broadcom tutorial, but it's not applicable because our 14e4, 4311 dev ID is already correctly entered in the AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext driver.
I would personally pay $25 to the first person that gets the wireless working for me via PayPal or send you an Apple $25 iTunes card. I am sure the other Presario laptop owners who are frustrated like me will probably chip in too because we all just want that wireless to work so much. Thanks!
