I did but nothing happened
thanks for help but I think the ATI X1300 mobility can't work in Mac OSX 86, may be I have to buy a new VGA card which supported by Mac ;)

PS: Oh my God! you're using the same Dell laptop model to me, but my VGA is difference


sorry it doesn't work. was a tiny chance there. at least you can change your graphics card. I cannot because mine is onboard (intel). buy yourself an nvidia go 7300 on ebay for less than $30 and you will be in osx heaven.

Just updated the installer.

Testing is very limited, that's why support is very minimalistic now.
Also, since i've switched to packagemaker 3 (big mistake), i've meet lot of problems (about permissions and files swapping) with installer. I need to check almost the entire package and files each time i want to update it, and it's a very long process.
And i don't want want to start again from scratch with an other packager, can't find energy for this.

those of you with E1505 and gma950. if you loose hotplug USB after upgrade to 10.5.6, try to delete/disable AppleHPET and AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement. it worked for me (according to slice recommendation). Note that this only works for gma950 100% because we don't have sleep mode 3, which you loose on other hardware (your usb won't wake up the system anymore).

just noticed something odd after 10.5.6. thought I figured this out already, but that wouldn't be fun, would it? I loose my fingerscroll when I unplug my mouse. at the same time the mouse tab under system preferences disappears as well. the trackpad prefpane is still there but fingerscrolling stops working. when I plug my mouse back in everything works just like before and the mouse tab comes back...
anybody else has this and may have a solution?

edit1: ok, just used my 10.5.5 keyboard prefpane and left the edited trackpad prefpane from 10.5.6 in there. fingerscrolling stays on now after unplugging my mouse.

thanks

I'd say it should work as long as you apply the correct hardware patches. other things are generic (e.g. pcefi, dual core kernel...) and should work on any system. if some of your hardware is not working as it's supposed to, apply the patch with only one item checked at a time - better for error tracking.

Salut Sonotone,

Nice to see you added Audio and Ethernet kexts for Dell Studio Laptops in the V1.4
Thanks, we were talking about making a specific post installer for this lapy, but if you integrate the support in yours, it is better...

Cheers

i totally agree and want to thank sonotone for the effort on the post installer. i've been looking at it and i see how much you put into it. thanks for all your hard work sonotone!!!

to respond to your issue here, maybe it is like mine. i got everything working, but had to include the acpips2nub kext. i used eureka's b5 version from here. curious if it works for you too. hope you get it workin.

in my case replacing the AppleACPIPlatform.kext with the one from 10.5.5 fixed the issues.

The "clean" way is to install AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext and remove ACPIPS2Nub.kext if it's installed

Well your 1530 will not have PCMCIA it will have a cardbus slot... and apple makes a usb wifi card now I think... but you could also change out your internal card with the Dell 1505 Draft N and it works with OSX.

edit: Apple makes a usb ethernet not wifi.. sorry... but I know I have a dlink wifi card that works with Mac OS X I used it on my G3 iMac but its only 802.11b so that would not do you any good... as you want N.

UPDATE: I got it working... I replaced the AppleHDA.kext with the one from my 10.5.5 installation and it works like a charm... even the mic in works now... So i now have a completely functional HackBook Pro :( except for all the sleep functions but I never used that when I used winblowz either... Thanks for everyones help...

Update 1/4/09 : Mic in is not exactly working... it works when you put headphones in it and talk into the headset (if you where ever a DJ you would know what I mean) but when you put a mic in it it does not work..... any suggestions?
