  1. Tiger on EeePC (Full Guide)

    I'm not sure if anyone is still following this, but there's a discussion on the eeepc timings issue on the wiki: http://tigeroneeepc.wikispaces.com/message...Kernels/2871291 One of us seems close to a solution, but maybe some of the kernel types here could help shed light on the subject...
  2. I am a mac fanboy. One of the reasons I liked the Apple platform was it let me run all the commercial apps I needed, and it gave me a worthwhile shell locally when I needed that, which I do often. When Apple was still on the PowerPC platform, the hardware was bulletproof and quality. Now that it's on Intel, Apple appears to be trying how to recreate that quality with off-the-shelf hardware-- with mixed results. If we were still on PPC, this wouldn't even be a question-- the extra price would be worth it to run an operating system that's actually worth my time. But my Intel hardware just isn't taking the beating that my PPC could. So I'm transitioning to hackintosh for my own use. That said, I'll continue to buy apple hardware that isn't their PCs. I own an iPhone, I have the keyboards and the cinema display, and they are consistently the best hardware in it's class that I have interacted with. Apple may recapture that with it's systems eventually, but for now, I can do better.
  3. Does anyone know where to pick up a side panel? I have a G5 case and a lot of the internal mounting equpiment, but no side panel.
  4. Callisto Technical Discussion

    I'm told that only b003 is working with the 200m right now. Could I get that? great.potato@gmail.com
  5. Here are some possible fixes. From what Linux has told me the modem is part of the sound system. Sound doesn't work just yet, but there's some really interesting process over in the other thread.
  6. ATI AC 97 Sounds (SB400) effort

    Ed-- Is there any debugging information you'd like after I give this module a try?
  7. Actually, I'd like to know if anyone' had any success getting the widescreen laptops to not stretch in VESA mode. It would be infinitely more useful to me that way.
  8. ATI AC 97 Sounds (SB400) effort

    Here's the part of the dmesg which seams to correspond to sound initialization: Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.10rc3 (Mon Nov 07 13:30:21 2005 UTC). ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:14.5[B] -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 209 ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:14.6[B] -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 209 MC'97 0 converters and GPIO not ready (0x1) ALSA device list: #0: ATI IXP rev 1 with unknown codec at 0xb0003400, irq 209 #1: ATI IXP Modem rev 1 at 0xb0003800, irq 209 I'm not sure if there's more to it, so I'm including the full dmesg in case there's something else. I installed this kernel late last week, and sound is working on it. dmesg.txt
  9. ATI AC 97 Sounds (SB400) effort

    Ed: What sort of data do you need? Just a dmesg and lspci? Or do you need something from /proc? If necessary, I can put my laptop with the x200 board somewhere you can get at it via ssh.
  10. Security Update 2006-002

    It was on my G4 laptop in software update this morning.
  11. Security Update 2006-002

    Which is what I did to find this thread. A search for 2006-002 (mind you, not 2006-001) turns up this page and this page only.
  12. ATI AC 97 Sounds (SB400) effort

    Just wanted to add my own HOORAY to this: HOORAY! Sound is the only thing left that has zero functionality on my PC.
  13. I ran the kextcache update like you said, and nothing good or bad happened, so I added the kextload line to /etc/rc (I should have guessed, really) and everything is hunky-dory. I made a directory "/usr/local/kext" and dropped it in there.
  14. I've got a fix. Just for the heck of it, I moved the OHCI kext to somewhere outside of the tree and then loaded it up: kextload -t AppleUSBOHCI.kext And after doing all possible checks, it loaded. Then suddenly, my external mouse, bluetooth dongle, and USB microphone started working. So I suppose all I need to do is figure out where in the launch process I can add this command, and then I'll have that all taken care of.
  15. I did delete the appropriate caches and such, yes. I followed your advice and killed off AppleUSBOHCI.kext and tried it again. Low and behold, things are working now, thank you very much. I tried a portable hard drive I have and it did work, but then I tried my external mouse, and that did not work (which I suspected, since that's part of with the OHCI stuff does.). I suspect from searching around Linux installation for the laptop that USB legacy support is forced on in the bios, or something similarly strange. If we could fix that, then we might get full USB support back. I'll keep playing around with it.
