EDIT: I have "problems" on Memory report in System Profiler with SMBIOS Resolver


Ok, now it is updated. Memory should show properly.

I have also made a new kext which subclass the AppleEHCI.kext so you should be able to use it with original kexts with just one modification.

EHCISleepEnabler

To enable it you have to edit the Info.plist in /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleUSBEHCI.kext/Contents/
You need to add these lines
<key>OSBundleCompatibleVersion</key>
	<string>1.0</string>
under
<key>CFBundleVersion</key>
 	<string>3.1.5</string>

Thats the theory. The next thing is a battery kext... but that is a much bigger task! Not sure where (and if ^_^) I want to start.
You should be able to remove the serial from the plist to have the serial from dell bios, but have not tested yet. so do not try it yet. Will soon and also include the options fix (aka dvd-fix).

edit: kext updated...

Hi, can someone tell me why my USB drive and SD card show up in SYstem Profiler but not in Finder?

I have a 1530 with OS X 10.5.2 installed using Kalyway.

Thanks.

Check that you have selected External Disks on Finder's preferences:
Attached File  Picture_1.png   43.67KB   37 downloads

Also on Terminal with "mount" command:
~ macgirl$ mount
/dev/disk0s2 on / (hfs, local, journaled)
devfs on /dev (devfs, local)
fdesc on /dev (fdesc, union)
map -hosts on /net (autofs, automounted)
map auto_home on /home (autofs, automounted)
/dev/disk0s3 on /Volumes/BOOTCAMP (ufsd, local, noowners, noatime)
/dev/disk1s2 on /Volumes/HFS (hfs, local, nodev, nosuid, journaled, noowners)
/dev/disk1s3 on /Volumes/FAT32 (msdos, local, nodev, nosuid, noowners)
My FAT32 and HFS volmes are on an External USB disk

Thx Macgirl. I did have the "external disks" checked. About the Terminal commands? What do they do? Do i just copy and paste them in Terminal? Sorry I'm a newbie. TIA

Just write "mount" on Terminal, it will list the mounted Volumes.

Well it's a sad day in Hackintosh land. I went and found a great deal on a real Mac. I found a 2.33ghz 15.4" MacBook Pro for $1200. It's cool because it is thin, and the keyboard is way better than the XPS. The screen is better on the XPS there. I don't care about LED, the screen on the XPS is brighter and clearer not to mention I like the higher resolution that I had. But I have no more hardware incompatibilities to worry about and I can run Windows in Parallels. The MacBook doesn't have an SD card slot either which is nice, since all my cameras use SD cards as did my phones before I got an iPhone. (coincidence!). It was good to have been able to test drive Mac OS and the iPhone development before buying, though.

I'll probably get a new MacBook when they come out. I couldn't pass up this deal, though. Now I can stand by, and shut down, and have dual monitors and gbit ethernet and update without worries and do all kinds of cool stuff. I'm still not a Mac guy, though.

Where the hell is the backspace key?

Hey, anyone want to buy an XPS, can come with OSX 10.5.3! I'd actually prefer not to sell it like that as the 10.5.3 is just an "evaluation" version. BTW, it's got the "good" screen and nearly 3 years warranty including accident protection. And extra battery and power supply.

So in the end, what is the best Hackintosh for a Dell XPS among iaktos 2, Leo4all and Kalyway ? Among those who installed successfully, what distrib did you use ?

i used the Kalyway 10.5.2 Distribution.
It hsa the best Compatibility for my Inspiron 9400 till today.

Still got that graphic stuttering bug - that leads to a sleep-awake-phase. What brings me than to an disabled earphone-jack. It'S a real vicious circle.

But we go on. And then...Apple is releasing an official MacOSX for PC.

Hello,
I'm having big trouble since I've updated in 10.5.3. I've graphical problem. I mean that display isn't as beautil as in 10.5.2. When I reduce window in the dock, it's not the same "movement". Then I've tried to download nvidia package from scottangel blog but I can't see the driver for nvidia 8600m GT.

Do you have the same problem? What should I do?

Thanks for your help

Eric

So I installed 10.5.3 (using the Jas Combo Updater). Seems like everything is working.

I even tried installing the new iPhone SDK/Xcode etc. Seems to work EXCEPT the iPhone simulator!

Anyone have any luck? It would launch but crash.

Display is still too many slow.
Furthermore, could you tell me why do I have only bluetooth icon on when I boot in -f and -x but not with normal boot? I don't understand why this happens.
This 10.5.3 update is very annoying! I wish I haven't done it!
