  1. Sleep on Thinkpads

    I have, (I think) the same issue. I replace my AppleSMBIOS.kext with macdotnub's version, did the chmod+chown+rm Extensions.mkext&reboot thing, booting into safe mode (F8+-x). Doing Fn-F4 seems to sleep properly, but the pressing the power button, the machine appears to wake up (fan restarts) but I get a black screen and have to hold down the power button to switch off. I have Thinkpad T60p (2007-CTO) (Very similar setup to Finetuned's, but with 14" screen) and am running Kalyway 10.5.1 + Kalyway 10.5.2 update, post LGU, Vanilla kernel 9.2.2. Any ideas on what to check? I recall messing with something a while back, trying to get sleep working, though if I can remember now what I did, so perhaps that's an issue? Cheers
  2. ATi Mobility Radeon x1700

    Hi, I just wanted to thank righteye and P2iM-0. Thanks to you (and numerous others on these boards) I now have QE/CI working on my Thinkpad T60p (2007-CTO, 14" (I think) display)! I really wondered whether I'd ever get it working, but in the end it was P2iM-0's kexts (with my EDID substituted in ATIinject, since I have a smaller screen) that did the job! Thanks again guys, you rock! If anyone else has the same laptop, I'll try to help if I can. Once I get my notes cleaned up, I'll post them on the forum. DaMoGan
  3. Well, I'm going to stick with 10.4.10 for now, and that goes for both my G4 PowerBook, as well as my Thinkpad T60p Hackintosh. I just got Tiger working on the Thinkpad, and I don't really see any features that I need right now from Leopard. (I even have legal access to Leopard via work for my PowerBook, but I'm still holding out.) I'm sure at some point in the near future I'll check it out on the PowerBook. By then, things will have shaken out on the Hackintosh scene as well, no doubt. :-)
  4. Best Tiger to Start out

    Heh, same here. Ahhh, the first time was great! No, really! Read on. I had been doing a ton of research, trying to figure out what machine I could build that would be most likely to be compatible as a hackintosh (with the understanding that it would dual boot, or perhaps only have Linux on it, if the hackintosh experiment failed.) Well, I was getting impatient, and I have about 15 computers at home, but only my Thinkpad T60p (2007-CTO, for those who care) has an SSE3 capable processor. I didn't want to blow it away, but then I realized that I could just install to an external USB drive (I have this sweet little USB powered 2.5" HD enclosure...) I decided to try mac.nub's contribution first, since that seemed the 'freshest.' Well, as it turns out I picked most of the right drivers the first time I did the install, because I'll be damned if the thing didn't work the first time! Not bad for a hackintosh noob, but most credit really belongs to mac.nub.... Well, I spent the next day trying reinstalls of mac.nub, and JaS, just for the hell of it, using different driver options (in the as it turns out futile attempt to get QE/CI working). I ended up going back to my original graphics choice, which despite not having QE/CI working, works wonderfully. (Ok, no DVD watching for me, and cover flow in iTunes won't work, but other than that, it really is just fine.) I'm impressed with the speed of this thing. This thing kicks my G4 laptop's ass out the door and back! If I want to use it as a Linux laptop (as I had been doing) I just shut it down, unplug the USB drive, and start it back up. Well, sorry for the relative lack of content, but I just had to get that off my chest. Thanks to everyone who has contributed code or shared knowledge on these forums. Hope I can return the favor somehow.
  5. Lenovo Thinkpad T60p 2007-CTO Hi All, Thought I'd update this since I have very similar hardware to that of hemzet (and thanks for providing the information you did!) I'm adding this because I just wanted to say that using mac.nub's 10.4.10 (v1r5) release, I was able to get "most" things working pretty much out of the box. Before anyone gets too excited, I don't have a QE/CI-enabled graphics solution. Sorry! Here is my hardware in some detail: - Intel Core2 Duo T5600 - 1GB/100GB RAM/Disk - 14.1" display (1400x1050 max resolution I think) - Atheros AR5212/Intel Mini PCI-E wireless - Yadda, yadda yadda. I installed to an external USB disk, just because I wanted to keep Linux on the internal drive (at least for now!) I do believe the internal SATA drive is supported. For the install, I selected (in addition to what was already selected) Video->ATI->ATI Mobility (graphics came up in 1024x768) hemzet's fix in first post of this thread got me the higher resolution. Audio->Azalia audio option Network->10.4.5 IO80211Family (for wireless. Wired networking worked for me out of the box.) I also added the optional 'Insomnia' PowerManagement and ... (ATI Tool? At any rate, it's the only other option). I hope this info helps someone else out! If anyone does ever find a way to get QE/CI working for this card, kindly add a post here. Thanks!
