  1. Asus 1005hab (works for 1005ha) Snow Leopard Install Guide

    Thanks. Fixed by reinstalling 10.6.5 combo update plus update steps.
  2. Asus 1005hab (works for 1005ha) Snow Leopard Install Guide

    Still working great. One problem I found today was the SD reader isn't working. Is there a solution for this? Cheers
  3. Asus 1005hab (works for 1005ha) Snow Leopard Install Guide

    thanks for your effort. installed and all working - including wifi and battery. only had one problem with the install and that was the pfix app not being installed onto either the usb or local hard drives. So, the install failed every time. The solution was to extract it from the myhack_installer_1.1.mpkg and run the terminal. Also, it does take a while and at times seems as if it has crashed, but it hasnt. just need to wait. thanks again.
  4. [GUIDE] Retail Snow Leopard Install on eeepc 901

    I suggested it to him, as he was having problems. I used CC and haven't had any problems with SL.

    The permissions error might be an apple bug, cause I have a similar problem on my Mini. It always fails to repair permissions on 3 files.

    I cloned using Carbon Cloner which surprisingly cloned Chameleon as well. So, there was no need to install Cham directly onto my internal 1000HA HD.

    Thanks. that fixed it. used DSDT patcher GUI. The other small problems; 1> Voodoo Power Management occasionally causes a kernel panic whilst in the OSX GUI 2> Bluetooth sometimes doenst wake from sleep, but as it is a usb dongle one, i can just unplug and re-plug.

    big shout of thaks to mk500 and all the others on the thread. This is the only install method that worked for me and my 1000HA. All working except a few small niggles 1> Fan seems to be running all the time 2> SWake from sleep works with Fn3 then Fn4 Had a problem with the trackpad to start with, but the prob remedied itself after a couple of restarts and permission fixes.
  9. Windows Keyboard -> Apple Keyboard?

    You can tune the keys in System Preferences, Keytboard & Mouse, Keyboard. Click on the modifer buttons and change the ones you want. I have Control key = Command Command key = Control Makes life a little easier
  10. Thanks dude. What a Pro u r. Thanks again for your hard work.
  11. Been using 10.5.5 with KisMAC on a eeePC1000H for about a month now, witht he same WiFi card. The weakest link in all of this is KisMAC. 99.9% of all problems come from it. KisMAC is super super sensitive to any changes in your system. So, after 1 month of unreliable operation, Ive decided to get an Airport card and swap it. However, I found the following: 1> There are 3 main different types of KisMAC scans A) Successful The channel number icon next to the Start Scan button runs smoothly thorugh the channels and the SSIDs appear in the list. RESULT: Connection B> Half successful but no networks i) The channel number icon moves slowly and skips channels. ii) The channel number icon moves as A above but slows down after one/two complete channel cycles. iii) The channel number icon next to the Start Scan button runs smoothly but no SSIDs appears RESULT: Half way there C> Lock up or no channels i) Nothing. App can lock up and system cause a Kernel Panic RESULT: Something big has messed up. B can be solved by one of the following: 1> Reinstall the IO8...kext 2> Reboot into BIOS, switch off LAN, reboot 3> Reboot into BIOS, switch off WIFI, reboot. Reboot into BIOS, switch on WIFI, reboot. 4> Delete extensions cache. Repair permissions. 5> Delete LAN in Network Preferences 6> If Dual Boot XP or Vista, boot into windows, remove Wifi driver in device manager , restart and allow auto device to reinstall. Connect and then shutdown and boot into OSX. Shutdown again and boot into OSX 7> Boot in -f -v 8> Boot in -v 9> Boot -s 10> Boot -x then reboot 11> Boot into BIOS, change the system time, reboot. 12> Boot into BIOS, reset settings to default. reboot. 13> Remove any recently installed software. If you get a C type scan then chances are a kext is clashing with KisMAC. This is much much harder to fix and I usually restore form Carbon Copy as I can no longer be arsed to spend half the day fixinig it. But, try all in the list above. try them 2 or 3 times. IMPORTANT FOR CONTINUING USE Once you get KisMAC working, use Carbon Copy to backup your system. Also do this before you install any new apps or change any system preferences. KisMAC sucks big time. The problems are caused by the Growl framework that KisMAC uses.
  12. A quick update for any that are interested. Success! Working on EEEPC1000H. Because the 1000H doesn't have a DVD I havent to go around the houses a little to get Ubuntu loaded. A few other changes "Third Step: Install ath_info To get it type: svn co http://svn.madwifi.org/ath_info/trunk ath_info" change to svn co http://svn.madwifi-project.org/ath_info/trunk ath_info ------------------------ Change to the directory: cd ath_info/ And install it: make make all And install it: make install ---------------------- EEPROM showed support for only 802.11g so I used 004e for b/g cards and it worked. Rebooted into XP and it found AR5000X and installed drivers. I also went into device manger and did the show all devices reg hack and removed all WiFi adaptors and then rescanned for new, and XP picked it up again. OSX terminal > lspci -vvnn returns... 01:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter [168c:001c] (rev 01) Subsystem: Apple Computer Inc. Unknown device [106b:004e] Im now reinstalling leo 10.5..5 to clean the ktexts out. Will update when completely finished. Thanks to iHack and kizwan
  13. thanks x10 for the reply kizwan. iam writing this in unbunto, just about to rebrand it. I just cant live wit the flakiness of KisMAC. Got it working, but too unstable. cheers
  14. But you have to use KisMAC to get it running and that sucks big time. I thought by doing this, OSX will see the card natively, so no need for KisMAC Am I worng then?? Still need KisMAC even after rebranding
  15. Not sure about the sound problem. But use time Machine to back up your system. You just need a usb drive 50mg plus. then if you get a kernel panic or something, boot from DVD and Utilies / Restore and Time machine will make everything happy again. Im had a nightmare of a time before someone on here mentioned the power of time Machine.
