  1. It seems for me the autoupdate does a better job than the combo or full update. What I did: - Install XxX 10.5.6 - Apple Update --> No Reboot - Reinstall Voodoo Kernel --> Reboot - Replace AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext, HDAEnabler.kext, AppleHDA.kext -->Reboot - Success!
  2. Okay... testing and experimenting. At the moment I have broken my installation once again. So no audio or video... But it worked at one point
  3. I'm game! Give me a few hours... Update: So far so good. I used Software Update. When done no reboot, but first reinstalled voodoo using installer. After reboot no sound and 800x600 display. Now reinstalling those kexts...
  4. In the terminal sudo nano /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist it will now open a terminal-based text editor go to <key>Timeout</key> <string></string> change it to <key>Timeout</key> <string>1</string> Hit Ctrl+O to write the file. Hit Y when it asks to overwrite. Then hit Ctrl+X to close the editor. Now you have a 1 second timeout, before it continues to boot. You can change this into any number. While you're at it. You can also at <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>cpus=2</string> if you are running Voodoo. Although I like the terminal some people don't. Alternatively you can yse OSX86Tools and hit the Add EFI Strings/Boot Flags button and change the settings there:
  5. PCEFI v9 Installer

    You can boot normally (bypassing wake), when your sleepimage is corrupted or something else goes wrong
  6. Is it possible to install some packages postinstall the initial installation? I can't find the packages on the disc. I've been looking for them with ls -la
  7. Acer Aspire One A150: iPC OSx86 10.5.6

    I've experienced the same problems on the latest XxX 10.5.6 disc. This disc is based on 9G66 (retail 10.5.6). I switched back to the older 10.5.6 disc 9G55 with updates. I thought it had to do with the 9G66. But this doesn't seem to be the issue. When someone figures this out, please post it on the forum.
  8. AnV XNU Kernel V1.4

    Same here! I've tried to boot in -v -s and then edit /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist to boot the original Kernel but that didn't help. Got an error saying it couldn't find something with /Users/Andy... ...cpp. In the end I did a reinstall of the complete system.
  9. Thanks! It worked. Indeed the upper edge is the way to go.
  10. I did! Hibernation does not work anymore. Using the previous versions I got it working with: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 1 and uncheck "Use secure virtual memory" in System Configuration --> Security and reboot. Besides the hiberantion everything worked as in the earlier versions. No new issues or fixes.
  11. Nice guide. I've tried XxX and iPC on my Aspire One. XxX gives best results without extra kexts. Butafter some modification they both made for the same functionality. Why use iAtkos? There are already topics on other distro's. What's the gain? Nevertheless, nice guide! One of the best I've seen. Do you mean physically swap the keys? I'm a little afraid I will break theme. Do you have some hints or a tutorial video?
  12. Acer Aspire One A150: iPC OSx86 10.5.6

    Fix for Voodoo Download AAO_SbM_OSX_1056_Pack.zip (http://perso.numericable.fr/sbmordino/AAO_...X_1056_Pack.zip)
  13. There are several tutorials for several distro's that work almost out of the box. I suggest the XxX tutorial by blue-k. It's somewhere in this thread. I don't think it's a video issue, but here are some hints. In the openingpost you can read: Now you now where to find the drivers. When you boot into single user mode. at the command line copy the above kexts to /System/Library/Extensions. (I assume you know how to do this.) followed by: For all 5 kexts: chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelGMA950.kext chmod -R 775 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelGMA950.kext And then touch /System/Library/Extensions reboot
