In Topic: [Guide] Dell Inspiron 6400/9400/1520/1720/E1405/E1505/E1705 Intel Core Duo

question, which system do you have? I wasn't able to get this to work on my E1505. for now I have no mute of speakers when headphones are plugged in. Ultimately, the goal is to get this to work on the latest system though.

I also have an E1505. Booting Leopard from a portable HDD.
I also used the taruga technique for sound way back, and had the sound with no mute during headphones.

I don't really know how to help out, though I do get random crashes on boot, and just now i got this error.

sound assertion "0 == entry failed in "AppleHDA/AppleHDAEngine.cpp" at line 2363
sound assertion "0 == entry failed in "AppleHDA/AppleHDAEngine.cpp" at line 2396

then it just repeated the 2nd line for awhile and stopped and froze

maybe thats a lead, or maybe its just my install.
also i have an idea. don't know if its related at all, but there is a kext on kalyway for Intel VIA NVIDA ATI HD Audio or somemthing like that, and since sound is detected as Intel High Definition Audio, i am wondering if installing said kext would help get sound through speakers???

hey all, i've been outta this whole shindig for awhile, but recently reinstalled using kalyway.
everythings working fairly well. have yet to try the dual core kernel though.

anyway i tried the new audio package by tbcarey on a 10.5.2 install, and i can report that the hardware picks up

Intel High Definition Audio:

Device ID: 0x102801BD
Audio ID: 12
Available Devices:
S/P-DIF Out:
Connection: RCA
Connection: 1/8 inch Jack
Connection: Internal
Connection: 1/8 inch Jack

but no sound from speakers. and at the moment i can't test head phones b/c i don't have any with me at the moment.
update later.

EDIT: Sound works with Headphones. This package at least works this much with 10.5.2 so you don't have to upgrade to use it.

In Topic: dell broadcom 1490, 10.5.1 kalyway... no wifi

i can see the card in the bios...
i tried repairing permissions, which seemed to repair quite a few but still no wifi indicator in the menu bar.

is it just supposed to be detected and work? i've been using a USB ethernet for the time being and it would be great to have one less cord to worry about...

Try booting either without your battery, or without your power adapter. I know it sounds silly. But thats what fixed it for me. I had the 1490 working fine for awhile, then it just all of a sudden stopped working. Tried booting without the power adapter and that fixed everything. Good luck.

In Topic: [How To] Solutions for Wireless Problems

18 January 2008 - 02:04 AM

I wasn't sure where to post this, but I never did find a solution to my wireless problem on the forum and ended up fixing it myself last night.

Anyway, I swapped out my Prowireless minicard in my Dell E1505 for a Truemobile 1390. Works like a charm and is detected as Third Party Airport. After all updates, it suddently stopped working, that is to say I couldn:t turn the the Airport ON, and I actually found alot of people with the same problem but no solution.

Anyway, tried the swap trick, tried changing my location, making a new login, etc. Nothing worked. Even tried booting into safemode and repairing permissions, and also reloading all kexts etc. Nothing worked.

In the end, I tried removing my battery and booting with only power adapter, didn:t work. Then I tried the reverse, battery with no power adapter, and voila wireless turned on. Then I realized that I had actually had a problem like this before when my DVDRW wouldn:t get any power after the system booted in to XP, even though everything was detected in BIOS.

So anyway, if anyone has problems after updates, try booting without your battery and if that doesn:t work, try booting without power cable. I know it sounds silly, but it seems to be some kind of power problem.

Oh yeah, and i suppose this only applies to laptops, cheers!

Confirming that the method works. Although I made a few alterations.
Credit goes to karaakeha1 for the method, and aliab and goob for the tips.

Started with a working Brazilmac installation using Onetrack's Guide. (Not sure if you can start with Tiger)
Installed to USB HD (going to use this to try an install to internal drive on desktop, GA-965P-DS3 Rev3.3)

Replaced AppleSMBIOs, added dsmos and NVInject, and removed AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement. Didn't remove AppleEFIRuntime because my other installation had it (your situation may differ). Chown, Chmod, Repair Permissions.

Booted up and works like a charm.
