In Topic: HP Mini 311 Darwin Project Thread (PART III - Current/Latest)

looks like there's been a lot happening lately. I'm interested in updating my machine to 10.6.5.

do i need updated software? I'm currently running HF6RC4.

what does the updated software do for us? i have 3GB in my machine - does that cause a problem?

i guess i need the details broken down. thanks.

great to hear that Meklort is back at it! Do you know the current status of the new bootloader? From his latest blog post, it sounds like NBI/NBBM is very much in flux at the moment, but moving forward in a big way.

doesn't sound like the right moment to bother him about HP mini 311 support.

I wanted to verify the end user benefits of this latest revision -

1) Improved battery life due largely to graphics power management
2) Trackpad scrolling doesn't work due to some DSDT changes

ok, one step backward but this is the way forward.

Installers based on MowgliBook's Retail Pack 1.0:

EFI Boot

HPM311DP_HF7(re-uploaded; .pkg format)

PC EFI 10.6 (fix for 3GB RAM)

nbi/nbbm uses a system of patching the dsdt. i guess it CAN be fully replaced but thats not ideal. the dsdt we use is a long way from the built in dsdt.

if anyone is interested, pm me and i'll send you the rather long email thread.

And back up again it looks like. He had some hosting problems but NBI/NBM seems to be handling 10.5 seeds well. I'd still like to try to resolve the issues with the HP and NBI. For me at least, I think it's a better/simpler approach and has the potential to be useful to many.



pb


if you'd like to help out just drop me a line. i worked with meklort to outline the main challenges to supporting the 311. they're not that bad, its just finding someone who has the knowledge and time. (unfortunately i lack the dsdt knowledge)
