Hmm, can someon tell me something:
How do i see, that it's working? I installed all three kexts... so how do I find out, if it worked?
Greetings

PS2Nub is supposed to use with Vanilla kernel and vanilla AppleACPI not with Hacked Kernel.

How do you know it's working, easy, PS2 keyboard and/or Mouse works.

I finally get this working on DESKTOP
the trick is, u need to plug a PS2 mouse and PS2 KB at same time to get the KB working(the same old trick back to 2005 when OSX first met x86)

for laptop this isn't a problem since it has trackpoint/touchpad connected as PS2 mouse, but on desktop, i always think i've done sth. wrong because everyone else says it works...

I'm glad my current MB still has PS/2 mouse port, seems lots of newer MBs remove it and has PS2 KB port only.

One thing I stick with PS/2 KB because it has same layout as standard apple kbs, ie. win=opt, alt=cmd, and on USB kbs, the 2 keys are reversed.

You could saved time if you read the Genius Bar's guid of KB and Mouse, that a very old know issue.

yes, but that's not necessary with modified AppleACPIPlatform.

"This requires Leopard and the generic or toh kernel as well as the ApplePS2Controller.kext from 10.4.x"

Can someone PM or post a link to a ApplePS2Controller.kext from 10.4.x?

I fixed this weeks ago when previous 10.5.2 Developer builds were out. I'm surprised no one else did it...
10.5.2 PS2Nub: http://tinyurl.com/ytkzon

Ignore the fact the file name says it's for 9C16, that just happened to be the developer build I made it for. It works fine on 10.5.2 Final.

Enjoy,

Does the PS2Nub.kext work with PS2 keyboard and Usb Mouse connected to Ps2 using an adapter?

I tried everything, but I never succeded in getting work the Ps2 ports with vanilla ACPI...

I'm under 10.5.2, I also tried the new kext posted by mac.nub, nothing change :)

Any suggestions?

you need to edit the ACPIPS2Nub.kext info.plist to match the 10.5.2 kexts in the OSBlundleLibraries, if they don't match it wont load.

ACPIPS2Nub was created when 10.5.1 and has previous versions.

Don't copy to the AppleACPIPlatform, leave it directly in the Extensions directory, (check ownership and permission, that ar cause for not loading) check with System Profiler or kextstat (on terminal) if it loads.

Alsho Check OSBundleLibraries in its Info.plist, it need to match the current version of your kest or it wont load.

FWIW, if anyone's trying to get a PS2 Keyboard working with a USB Mouse, check out this thread for an updated ACPIPS2Nub.

AFAIK ATAblocking error has nothing to do with PS2nub.

You can use PS2Nub if you are using the vanilla AppleACPIPlatform (since the vanilla lack of the PS2 kexts)

I din't watch a difference with Vanilla or Modded APCIPlatform kexts.

Hi,

I upgraded to 10.5.4 but lost my trackpad. Can someone post the vanilla ACPI kext?

I have tried several combinations of ACPI + PS2 + other plugins and drivers from FFScroll with no luck.

It was all working in 10.5.2. Reverting to old kexts doesnt work either... ;)

Thanks,

Vikram

Not sure why but I managed to get this working on 10.5.4

I was trying to install Jas 10.5.4 on my Samsung laptop and I kept getting the dreaded "No Keyboard" stuff and also I was getting no Wi-fi which I found strange but the Jas disk was not finding my DW1390 during boot.

So I went back to my Leo4All V2 disk, installed that with the correct options, then at reboot I put the Jas disk in and only selected the Jas essentials, the Stage XNU kernal and NVKush (since it was NVInject on the Leo4All). On reboot everything worked perfectly apart from the battery indicator which was solved using one of the methods i found here (can't remember which one, oh my brain!!).

Hope this might help someone, I just do not know why it was not working using Jas, maybe that is designed for desktop systems or something. Still it worked really easily using the method above and i now have a perfect 10.5.4 install including throttling using Chun Nan's GenericCPU thing.
