PS2Fix has broken my JaS 10.5.4 install?

30 September 2008 - 05:19 AM

Hi,

I installed JaS 10.5.4 on my Compaq Evo 510 (installed with a PS/2 keyboard and mouse connected). Then once OSX booted for the first time I had to attach a (borrowed!) USB keyboard and mouse. Then I got into OSX and all was fine.

I downloaded and installed the PS2Fix1054 package and all went well.

Then I rebooted and swapped the USB mouse/keboard for the old PS/2 ones, now when I restart I get to the grey screen with the Apple-logo and the 'spinning' counter-icon and that's it - doesn't boot any further than that.

I've tried reconnecting the USB mouse and keyboard, but that doesn't help.

I also tried using the -x boot option during the Darwin startup, with no luck.

Is there any way I can remove PS2Fix and get back to a working OSX install?

I'd had to have fubarred my system so quickly!

Any comments or help greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

Mike.

leo4allv3 (10.5.2) install constantly resets after first few steps

26 September 2008 - 02:02 AM

Hi,

I've just burned the latest leo4allv3 (10.5.2) DVD image but am hitting problems pretty much as soon as I boot from the DVD.

When the DVD boots, it getting to the step when it is loading "/SYSTEM/LIBRARY/EXTENSIONS" (about the 4th or 5th step) but then the PC just resets.

I've also tried hitting F8, which gives me the "Boot:" prompt. When I try the "-v" boot flag, the info I'm seeing when it attempts to boot, is the same as when it boots without intervention.

When I try typing "?" and hitting enter, I get single line along the top of the screen which says:

"Timeout=8 Number of seconds to pause at the boot: prompt.ng"

... and nothing else - not really very helpful! :-)

I've tried it on two machines (HP D530S and Compaq D510 - both of which have SSE2 CPUs) and it does the same thing.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Many thanks,

Mike.
