  1. Going to try this today thanks @claver and everyone else on this thread. -Rock
  2. Lion performance issues

    Same issues here Details: - Acer 5745G, 4 GB RAM, Core i5-430M, Nvidia GT330M snow leopard works just fine, the UI and performance is breezy, on Lion there is a general sluggishness / Jitters in the UI. Overall, I think this might be a UI drivers issues, not sure though. Some things I tried [but didnt work]: - Unloaded AppleUpstreamUserClient - Rolled back AppleACPIPlatform and IOPCIFamily to 10.6.7 I guess a lot of people are facing this issue, would be great if someone can investigate, or guide on how to investigate this issue. -Rock

  4. Snow Leopard in Acer Aspire 5745G?

    Good that it helped .. there are still some issues regarding sleep and audio not working exactly great ( pin configs or vhda pref pane adjustments). I used a dell 1510 mini wifi card, based on discussion with people on IRC and searching in the forums, it seemed at that time, the actual wifi card was not supported in osx86, it might have changed now, not sure. Here is the link to my comment on prasys' blog : http://prasys.info/2009/12/rebranding-broa...t/#comment-3502, it has the exact model / chip number. -Rock

  7. Snow Leopard in Acer Aspire 5745G?

    I have been able to get the basic system up but two main things not working are 1) Battery Indicator (Tried AppleACPIBatteryManager.kext - Gives KP, Tried VoodooBattery.kext shows 100% and charger connected all the time). 2) Sound System (Tried VoodooHDA doesnt work OOB, Made some tweaks to PinConfig, but not successful Yet) Right now I have shifted to Linux Ubuntu 10.04, even there I faced the above two problems. Solved them in Ubuntu by : 1) Compiling a Custom kernel with the patch : http://download.tuxfamily.org/3v1deb/acer-...-ACPI-fix.patch. As by what I could make out it calls the _REG method before the EC device is started using (I guess some sort of initialization) 2) Using a backport package, the sound works but is identified as ALC271X before that it was identified as ALC269 (but didnt work) Does Any know how to fix the above issues? Thanks in advance! Rock
  8. Snow Leopard on Acer 5738G

    Another improvement following suggestions from iSpliff. Got the native graphics working without the NVinject. a) Removed the NVinject kext AsereBLN Booter installed. I had an additional install of Leopard on the same drive, so formatted that and ran MyHack installer. c) Added Graphics Enabler = y, Graphics mode as 1366x768x32 and Pciroot = 0 in the com.apple.Boot.plist Rebooted and boom ! native graphics working ! External monitor also working correctly. Thanks Conti, iSpliff ! -Rock
  9. Snow Leopard on Acer 5738G

    Made two changes to the system: The CPU was running very hot and system shutting down hard, so uninstalled all the previous kexts and just added VoodooPowerMini and VoodooMonitor to the system, now the CPUs are running much cooler In the process of whole cleaning up, accidentally removed my /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist (one which booted the system in legacy mode) and guess what, the whole thing worked like a charm so now enjoying 64 Bit SL. Two glitches though Had to install NVinject 64 bit to get the graphics working, would love to get graphics working with out the Injector, any thoughts ????? No tap to click working on Trackpad. After much trials and failures got that working with http://nawcom.com/osx86/files/10.6/PS2/Voo...troller.pkg.zip, thanks nawcom !! -Rock
  10. Snow Leopard on Acer 5738G

    Updated to 10.6.3 Just remember to run Conti's Pfix before rebooting the system, the reboot will take some time, just sit through that.. and all should be well. -Rock
