:(

Marvell Yukon 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller <VEN_11AB&DEV_4354> (couldn't find any kext on the forum yet)
After editing IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon.kext/Contents/Info.plist, the Ethernet was detected!!! Success was short lived - status shows "Ethernet cable not plugged in" regardless of it connected or not :( Profiler shows ethernet is present complete with IP address, but I couldn't access my router 192.168... so the NIC is still not properly initialized.

Is there any possibility that you can develop a driver for Yukon Ethernet?
Connection rate by Airport is really slow....
Thanks in tons!

Hullo, could you maybe add Dell 1525 to the list? I'm using the (dreaded) GMA X3100 ;) Anyway, here's my config:

Install Kalyway 10.5.1, updated to 10.5.2 with Kaly Combo Update
GMA X3100, ONLY works on EXTERNAL monitor. 1680 * 1050 * 32. Full QE/CI (total blank on internal monitor. why won't it run on 1440 * 900 when capable of 1680 is beyond me). Already tried natit.kext but didn't work, don't want to use the sleep trick ;)

Single user mode saved my life many times now, after (really) countless of erase and installs of Leopard, I really loathe GMA X3100


Kalyway 10.5.2 here
Dell 1520
bought a dell wireless 1390 card thats recognized as airport
most utilities work, x11 does not
bolded applies to me above

PS: {censored} the x3100

tried to install on my dell xps m1330, started up in safe mode (for some reason, this is the only mode i can load osx in) and installed the 2 finger scroll and battery package. restarted and upon restart, osx would no longer load. it just gave me the grey apple loading screen and then a circle with a line through it above that after about a minute. had to uninstall and reinstall osx :(

Build 0.2.3:
- Add Sigmatel 9205 prepatched kexts.
Link: http://rapidshare.co....O.2.3.zip.html

TESTERS: Please give your laptop model (and Hardware), release used, build used and Kernel installed.
A step by step installation will be better to report each section problem.
Thanks.

yo

i installed the build 0.2.3 on my dell vostro 1700 to see if it would work.

i installed sigmatel 9205 first and it didnt work so i installed all the sound kexts. then i also installed the british keyboard, fix disk permission.

and neither worked!

so now i still have no sound and the an added extra the track pad is not working on my dell vostro 1700.

could you please help to fix the track pad and the sound. (the track pad just goes mental when you touch it... and slowly goes up to the top left corner... very annoying)

is there going to be an installer made for the Vostro series and not just XPS and inspiration series?

hope you can help

thanks

Boom!

When trying to start the DellPackage.0.2.3 and I get the message "you use an old version Only for Leopard

Sounds strange, it define minimum target for 10.5.0... Try the 0.2.2b to see if you have the same issue.

ried to install on my dell xps m1330, started up in safe mode (for some reason, this is the only mode i can load osx in) and installed the 2 finger scroll and battery package. restarted and upon restart, osx would no longer load. it just gave me the grey apple loading screen and then a circle with a line through it above that after about a minute. had to uninstall and reinstall osx

Battery meter is only for 10.5.2 (it's specified into installer). Maybe you ran it with 10.5.1

You have to open "international" to check british keyboard.
Vstro users seem's to have issues with 2-fingers. I recommend to visit Ranova thread for furthers informations.
Sigmatel 9205 kexts comes from a Vostro 1700 owner, so it's supppose to work with yours, but maybe something goes wrong with installer. Did you saw the sound icon in menu bar?
There is a link here to a small package with only sigmatel 9205 kexts, can you try it and give me a report (if it's doesn't works, try to remove AppleHDA.kext and ALCinject.kext (in Extensions folder) before to install.

Did you try to boot in Verbose Mode (-v) to watch for errors and warnings?

All olds kexts are backed-up in /DellLaptops/backup.
You can run in single user (take a look in the forum for this) and restore them.
But i need more details about your configuration, your message error during boot, and what did you choose in my package. I'm also a 9400 owner and make many test with this installer, and never crash my system. If you're nor running with a 10.5.2, you may have troubles with battery meter (appleacpiplatform.kext is only compatible with 10.5.2)

I do have Kalyway 10.5.1 so that (battery meter) could be the cause.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;configuration: Dell 9400 Bios A09 - 1.83 MHz - 2 GB Ram - Ati 1400X graphics - Internal Empty SATA disk 160 GB &lt;br /&gt;Booting results in endless waiting at the boot screen (grey with rotating circle).&lt;br /&gt;Booting with option -s gives no further information because it stops without describing an error:<br />Mac Framework succesfully initialised, using xxx buffers and than it stops&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;

Hallo Sonotone,

thanks for this idea.

I installed the build 0.2.3b, and after restart i get the error message "System extension cannot be used"; The system extension "/System/Library/Extesnsions/ATIRAdeonX1000.kext" was installed improperly and cannot be used. Please try reinstalling it, or contat the products vendor for an update.

And my Quarty Exterme is not supported

My setup is:
Dell inspiron 6400 + kalyway 10.5.2 + kernel (i dont remember the name, was the secon option, the one for laptops)
-Cpu: Intel T7200....................= working (cpus=1 )
-Graphic:ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 ..= workingbutWITHOUTQE,Ineedhelpforthat
-sound: Sigmatel 9200...........= working (AppleHda patcher)
-Usb/Firewire...........................= working (out of the box)

hello Kilo77
only 4:3 , not 16:9 .
My Dell inspiron 9400 laptop has AtiX1400 and bios A09 with native widescreen of 1440x900 pixels. I used Kalyway 10.5.1 installation (cpus=1 ;) ); I tried all video solutions of this OSx86 forum but nothing works: MacOs has 1152x864 (4:3) and no widescreen!

anything in this package that can get both cores working? Or are Dell owners pretty much stuck with a laptop that runs at 50%?

partialy, yes.

There is many things inside this package, like a ton of love, but nothing for your request.

E1705 9400 2.0 core duo gma950

Everything installed fine except the smbios from netkas caused my kalyway 10.5.2 with Vanilla Kernel to crash.

Dell 1390 wireless does not function with IONetworkingFamily from 10.5.2 may I suggest a fix in a future package for this?

See here for more info about my problem and the solution

Also the mouse started to act very weird after install (it will just decide to scrool when I move my finger just a tiny bit) tried to do what your guide says to fix it but it didn't do anything. Maybe I need to replace the touchpad kext with an older one?

E1705 Core 2 Duo 2ghz, Leo4All v3.

STAC9200 in package did not work. Controls appear but no sound. AppleHDA 1.20 plus the STAC9200.txt over at that site with the dumps fixed it (mute only turns on, have to adjust volume to un-mute)

The 2-finger scrolling thing didn't work out so well. I did figure out on my own that it's pressure-sensitive, but only seems to work for me with one finger pressed kinda hard. It did mess up double-tap sensitivity ; ;
