  1. Hello, It's been a while now that I started looking for a netbook to put MOX 10.6 on. The specs I'm looking for are: Battery life of 5 hours minimum 9" to 10" screen size Working QE/CI Working USB Working Audio Working Sleep and battery indicator But as a netbook is meant to be used on the go, one of the most important is complete substitute to as cumbersome mouse: => A touchpad that fully supports all multitouch gestures Mac OS X can offer (one to four fingers) At some time, I was told MSI Wind netbooks had the closest Apple touchpad, is it still true? Thanks for all help/advise you could offer.

    Snow Leopard on Eee PC 1005HAG

    I tried another tutorial, way more generic: Installing Snow Leopard for OSX86 from Prasys’ Blog. But I can't even start the SL installer: I have a panic because of (It may not be the CPU family and stepping, I've forgot to write it down so I copy/pasted some found with Google. But the error is this one, not a "time out" issue). It's weird because I thought that PC_EFI's goal was to help avoiding these base compatibility issues.
  4. Hello, I've been trying for about 2 weeks to install Snow Leopard on my netbook, a Asus Eee PC 1005HAG, which specifications are: Intel Atom N270 1.60GHz Chipset: Mobile Intel 945GSE Express, ICH7-M AHCI, HDD: 160GB SATA Hitachi RAM: 1GB DDR2 PC2-5300 Display: Intel GMA 950 on 1024x600 (WSVGA) No Optical drive Network: Atheros AR8132 (Ethernet Gigabit), Atheros AR9285 (Wireless 802.11 b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.1 I've tried to follow the MacEee guide but for an unknown reason Snow Leopard won't install to internal SATA HDD: takes age to fail. Installer log says something like: I've managed to install SL wih and on an external USB disk drive: 2 partitions, one for the SL DVD Retail dump and another to install. Seems stable but not totally. Even from there, sometimes, Finder and Disk Utility doesn't find my internal drive... Note: I have a available original Mac with Leopard install to help in achieving that SL installation. Thanks for you help

    Poor SAMBA Performance with Leopard

    On a Mac Mini G4 running Mac OS X 10.5.8, when I run smbd ("/usr/local/sbin/smbd") I've got the following output: mini:~ root# /usr/local/sbin/smbd dyld: Library not loaded: bin/libtalloc.dylib.1 Referenced from: /usr/local/sbin/smbd Reason: image not found Trace/BPT trap Samba 3.4.6 was installed by the following commands mini:~ root# ./configure --with-syslog --prefix=/etc/samba --bindir=/usr/local/bin --sbindir=/usr/local/sbin --libdir=/etc/samba --mandir=/usr/local/share/man --with-utmp=no mini:~ root# make mini:~ root# make install
  6. Quick post to inform that I resolved my Intel GM965 video drivers problem on my Dell Vostro 1500 by using the Dell Laptop Post Installer 1.3.1 and selecting the "GMA X3100" driver. Version 1.4.1 didn't worked. Thanks to Mayne's comment of Clayton McIlrath's « My Dell Vostro 1500 Hackintosh » post which gave the solution. Hope it'll help in the future.
  7. Quick news: I managed to install the proper drivers I followed Mayne's comment of Clayton McIlrath's « My Dell Vostro 1500 Hackintosh » post: I used Dell Laptop Post Installer 1.3.1 I'll quickly post the whole, clean, procedure. Side note: The same comment says to use the same Dell Laptop Post Installer version (1.3.1) to install sound drivers and not to try it on Mac OS X 10.5.6: I used a different install method for the sound (implying unix codec dump and AppleHDA.kext) and it works fine on 10.5.6. In a few days I'll post the entire Mac OS X installation tutorial.
  8. Console version of the Apple System Profiler is the "system_profiler" command: $ system_profiler [...] Graphics/Displays: Intel GMA X3100: Chipset Model: GMA X3100 Type: Display Bus: Built-In VRAM (Total): 144 MB Vendor: Intel (0x8086) Device ID: 0x2a02 Revision ID: 0x000c Displays: Display: Resolution: 1280 x 800 Depth: 32-bit Color Core Image: Hardware Accelerated Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Quartz Extreme: Supported Built-In: Yes Display Connector: Status: No display connected [...] It looks like my video card is going fine (good resolution and both Core Image and Quartz Extreme). The only problem is that my screen is black :-/ I ran some new test with an external monitor plugged in and here are the updated results: If I boot in "normal" mode: Main (internal) screen: the grey loading apple -> the plain light-blue screen -> the screen goes off (no display) External screen: standby (no display) -> on but black -> on but black If I boot in Safe-mode (-x): Main (internal) screen: the grey loading apple -> the plain light-blue screen -> the screen goes off (no display) External screen: standby (no display) -> the plain light-blue screen -> extended desktop (I see "Aurora" default wallpaper) By trying to put main display on the external monitor (to actually see something) I also noticed that I still have the "white stripe problem". Indeed I used the [Fn]+[F8] hotkey to make my Vostro switch between main LCD and external output: the result was that white stripes appeared on external display and some kind of light artefacts on the internal LCD (on a black background).
  9. So, in theory, if I get to have some display on my screen without being in safe-mode I would have won? Is there a way to get the same hardware informations of "Apple System Profiler" but in the console/terminal? (Then I could check via SSH after a normal boot)

    Dell Vostro 1500 Mega Thread

    Hello, It's been a few days since I began trying to get Mac OS X 10.5.6 working on my Vostro 1500. My problem is about the video chipset, an Intel 965: can't get it to work in 1280x800 with graphics acceleration and Quartz Extreme. I started a dedicated topic : Drivers for Intel 965 video chipset (iPC 10.5.6), Get Quartz Extreme working (on Dell Vostro 1500).
  11. Hello, I've been trying to get Mac OS X 10.5.6 working on my Dell Vostro 1500 laptop for a few days now. The problem I have is to get the integrated Intel 965 video chipset working. After Installing iPC 10.5.6 ("iPC OSx86 10.5.6 Universal PPF5 (Final).iso", md5: 9ceb2e8daaa182a1071a337ad9b81e3f) I had to remove (in "-s" boot mode): /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelGMA* /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext To get something on the internal LCD. But as it was only 1024x768 (my screen native resolution is 1280x800) without Quartz Extreme. So I tryed installing "Dell Laptop Post Installer 1.4.1" (from sonotone) "GMA 650" video drivers but it didn't changed anything (still 1024x768 and no acceleration). Then I tried "GMA X3100" video drivers (also from Dell Laptop Post Installer 1.4.1) and since: If I boot in "normal" mode: Main (internal) screen: the grey loading apple -> the plain light-blue screen -> the screen goes off (no display) External screen: standby (no display) -> on but black -> on but black SSH is working fine. I can connects to VNC (Leopard desktop sharing) but it stays black and then closes. If I boot in Safe-mode (-x): Main (internal) screen: the grey loading apple -> the plain light-blue screen -> the screen goes off (no display) External screen: standby (no display) -> the plain light-blue screen -> extended desktop (I see "Aurora" default wallpaper) SSH is working fine. VNC is working fine (I have to connect once, type user credentials at safe-mode-logon-window, validate to get disconnected from VNC, and then reconnect to VNC to see my working desktop) The following screenshot (taken via VNC in Safe-mode boot) shows that my integrated video card seems to be recognized: (I guess Quartz Extreme is disabled in safe-mode?) I searched a lot before posting but I'm running out of ideas... iPC 10.5.6 installation parameters : $uname -a: Here are the computer's relevant specs (some were retrieved from SIW software under Windows XP) : UPDATED: Added results of boot tests with an external monitor

    Discuss 8400M GT for Vaio only

    I ran into the same problem with my Sony VAIO VGN-FZ18M (GeForce 8400M GT). Run in VESA mode in fixed 1024x768 resolution No Quartz Extreme or Core Image Installing NVinject-Go makes the screen to go black at Mac OS X loading (still the system is running fine and I can change resolution : accessed via VNC). That annoying problem is killing my eyes at each working session. (I tried Kalyway 10.5.2 but my guess is that all distributions would run into the same problem)

    french keyboard ...

    I copied the "Clavier Vaio FR.keylayout" file to "/System/Library/Keyboard Layouts" but it's still invisible in "System Preferences/International/Input Menu" (I restarted Mac OS X before going there).Have I missed something?
