well i am happy to say i am posting in these forums for the first time on a box running osx86!! seems the plist hack worked once i cleaned all the kexts from the plugin dir under IONetworkingFamily.kext. Also have to just remove the secondary pci dev id entry all together and without even rebooting the network config panel popped up!

so now its back to the wireless and then if i want to be all crazy, guess i could see if i can't get the buttons on the front going. to be honest I am not quite sure if the brightness is maxed out quite anymore, seems to be toned down a bit and i am still trying to figure out where to adjust screen brightness in OSX. :P

so going to enjoy this a bit and get all my apps updated and then take a good image. will go on from there!!

ok ok ok, have been making some serious progress. now at the point where its going to be more beneficial for me to just get my hands on an airport card and just be done with the whole thing! lol.

lots of updates and I am planning to put a full howto together for cf-19 with iAtkos 10.5.7 as that is where i am at now, but also convinced we have different models of toughbooks, i know for sure i am mkii and thinking you may have the newer ones or the mkiii's as they are known.

as of now, full hardware support with QE using x3100 drivers, found the video issues i had were nothing more than resolution issues fixed with an external monitor, here was some help, but more on that later.

also have the sd card working and although i have not tested it for speed or even tested it extensively but so far reads and writes seem to be at similar speeds as under windows.

here is a link to threadi found it in and to specifically the kext thats working for me!

so been looking around and just wanted to be sure i am looking for the correct atheros card. so toorhax do you know the exact model i should be looking for?

if this is the model; AR5BXB72. then they are quite penty on the bay and fairly affordable as well. If you are still out there following this let me know.

And thanks again toorhax for setting me down this path, I am very very satisfied with how it is working right now, very very stable and quite quick for whats under the hood. I would have never even tried this if it werent for you making your youtube video.

oh and some other things i have noticed since running 10.5.7 now, it does seem to sleep and resume better now, and i am getting sound input using the apple HDA driver instead of the azalia one i metioned earlier. reboot doesn't work still although shutdown seems to drop everything down fine.

tried the realtek 8139 and didnt have any luck with it. this is what i am going to play around with today and once i have everything operation i plan on gathering all my notes and links into a nice article to share.

thanks again and hope to hear from you soon!

hey toorhax,
guess I just noticed but your driver is showing as a realtek for the nic, now thats leading me to wonder if we may have different toughbooks, do you know if yours is a mki mkii or mkiii off hand.

I know specifically mine is a cf-19f/mkii model.

just wondering if we may have some not so subtle differences in our hardware.

either way, I am going to take a good back up and try the realtek driver out, the first backup i made using carbon copy cloner didnt seem to work when i restored so I am going to try and create a good disk image from disk utility from the bootdisk. I don't believe the version of ghost or rdeploy I am using supports HFS+ so guessing that should be a decent way of backing up. I guess I will find out if I have to restore. ;-)

back in a bit!

loaded this on my Panasonic Toughbook Cf-19 and its working for output through speakers only.

No headphones or mic input, but at least I have sound!

iPC osx86 10.5.6 ppf5

Thanks a lot for this!!

Hey again, some small but positive updates, had a really weird experience while testing another loadout and while it was stuck at the apple screen during one of the failed boots, i was just working on another computer waiting to see if it would boot into the gui. out of no where i get some song start playing, i took a double take and had to walk over to it to make sure it was actually coming out of the toughbook, it was. stuck at the apple boot screen but playing a song, i thought well at least the speakers sound good! i repeated the same install procedure but this time booted with verbose output and it was looking like at least the new audio driver i chose seems to be at least partially working... so i revert back to one of my failsafe setups and just add the azalia driver to my loadout and boom the new user registration comes up and we officially have sound!!

So toorhax, I know this wasn't something you were dieing to have but its a little something I can give back to you for all of the help you have given me!!

Take a look at this thread and the pkg file is in the first post so give it a shot and see if it gets you sound on yours. So far i know its output only, no sound input or output to the headphone jacks but at least the speakers now work!


now i am moving on to the ethernet, will see what I can't come up with today!
