PS2Fix has broken my JaS 10.5.4 install?

30 September 2008 - 05:19 AM


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!



leo4allv3 (10.5.2) install constantly resets after first few steps

26 September 2008 - 02:02 AM


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,
