Hi BslBryan,
sounds good!
How about brightness+SUN logo ? Full battery support ? Pstates and Cstates ?
Sleep should work on your machine with DSDT, try create one with Linux LiveCD

Clear difference between cstates and pstates, no problem with hd or fan making noise in times of idle.
No sun logo, but brightness changes. That's all I really care about. The function's there. I would be more upset if I had the logo but no functionality. ;-)

I don't put my computer to sleep normally but it might be a nice idea. I've got a couple linux distros hanging around here. I used Ubuntu's latest long term stable (10.04) a lot when ethernet wasn't showing up in OSX (so I could dl kexts) so it's actually right here.

Really what I'd like to do is find a way to bake the startup sound into an EFI emulator or replace pcspkr with the startup sound. I also have thought about using afplay to load and play a sound when (in verbose mode) the kexts are loading up, so it would chime a little after the white screen, but before login.

EDIT: Yes, full battery support as well. At least, I did. I removed AppleHPET.kext from /S/L/E because it was conflicting with my ethernet kext, but that was my choice.

Hi BslBryan,

Would you be able to tell us all what kexts you used to get your setup working?

I would love to install Snow Leopard on my HP Pavillion dv6000

Thanks

Ahh... Finally back to this forum.

I'm currently writing from my DV9575 with 10.6.6.

Anyone know how to get audio working? I got it working on 10.5.8, but people say that the kexts will cause a KP.


I think it's a Realtek ALC268.

Please, anyone?

EDIT:

HAHA! I got it working!
This will work for DV6000 and DV9000, I just replaced AppleHDA in S/L/E and ran Kext Utility. I guess it can be installed in /extra/extensions so that you don't overwrite when updating OSX.

Hey all,

I'm actually running 10.5.8 on my DV 6875se but I really want to move to 10.6. Any advice?

I'm happy to report that my DV6500T now runs iATKOS Lion 10.7.1 wonderful! I can say it's quite fast and speedy over 10.5.8. I never had much luck with 10.6.x(crashed a lot) so yeah 10.7.1 is nice!

The only patch or editing I needed to make was the volume control slider. You have to edit a couple of lines in voodooHDA plist for the volume control slider to work correctly. Other than that, everything else works!

UPDATE: The only issue I'm having now is the CMOS time reset. The times keeps resetting. I tried all the AppleRTC fix I can find and none seems to resolve the issue. For the time being, I'm restoring 10.5.8 image until I can find a fix.

Hi, all!

I recently installed Snow Leopard 10.6.3 (then updated to 10.6.7) on my DV9700, and I need some help getting shutdown to work!

I have the EvOreboot kext installed, but I do not think it is making a difference!

I used #####, but I am thinking of using a DSDT file, is this the best way to go?

Thanks!
