    Dell Studio XPS 8100

    Hi, Dell XPS Studio 8100 Core i7 - 860 Nvidia GTS 240 1Go RAM 6Go 2*1To Working: - Triple boot Windows 7 / Linux / Max OS X - Mac OS X 10.6.2 - Video with double screens, acceleration and Quartz, using only "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" - Sound using VoodooHDA - CD/DVD RW Not working: - Mac OS X 10.6.3 - RAID 0 - Onboard ethernet card (changed by an old RTL8139) A very good system
  2. Hi, Sometime I have the same problem : my internet access is not working even if the connection to my AP is ok. In this case, I found this is a name resolution problem, solved with the command: sudo killall mDNSResponder Hope this help
  3. Here is my complete 'comp.apple.Boot.plist' file, with 64bits mode and Ethernet detection activated, and the graphics EFI string. About its location : I did so many tries that on my laptop this file is now installed both in '/Extra' and in '/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration' com.apple.Boot.plist.zip
  4. @cp96, did you follow all the steps ? It's really important to change the bootloader to PC EFI v10.3, configure it to detect the ethernet port and put the Ethernet kext into the IONetworkingFamily plugins. I have tried a lots of settings before and it's the only one which is working for me.
  5. I have now the Ethernet port working fine (tested in 64bits mode): - Use the just released PC EFI v10.3 instead of Chameleon as bootloader http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=187870 To do so, replace the '/boot' file by this one: Download: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...st&id=57376 - Put this key into 'com.apple.Boot.plist': <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> - Put the following RealtekR1000 extension in /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ Now the Vostro 1720 is nearly a perfect Mac Still not working: - sleep / hibernate - the memory cards reader - the fingerprint sensor - voodoo power (at least in 64bits mode) - is firewire working fine ? I can't test it RealtekR1000_1.8.2.zip
  6. @Vostro15: the vostro 1720 has the following sound chipset: Controller: Intel 82801I (vendor ID: 8086, device ID: 293e) Codec #0: IDT 92HD81B1C (vendor ID: 111d, device ID: 76d5) @ukhan: a patched DSDT.aml is not totally necessary. We can see that, even without it, the Snow Leopard install is now nearly at the same level of working features than we had with Leopard. But a patched DSDT.aml can help, to make more retails kernel extensions to work or perhaps to solve the remaining problems like, for example, the sleep and hibernate states.
  7. I modified the latest SVN version (r8) of the VoodooHDA driver to have volume change, mute and the external and internal mic working. VoodooHDA.zip
  8. Hi Ukhan I've also installed the PS2 and HDA kexts in S/L/E, not in E/E. In attachment, there is the VoodooBattery kext I recompiled for SL 32/64 bits (I only used it in 64 bits). The VoodooPower is more difficult to recompile because of the direct use of 32 bits assembler code. I managed to activate click tapping with the VoodooPS2Controller.kext driver. To me the problem was that the Trackpad prefpane was not showing. So I did the manipulation described at http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...p;mode=threaded - In /System/Library/PreferencePanes/Trackpad.prefPane/Contents/Info.plist, delete the two lines: <key>VendorID</key> <integer>1452</integer> - delete the file /Users/<Current User>/Library/Caches/com.apple.preferencepanes.cache Now the Trackpad prefpane appears and you could checked the 'clic' option. The only problem now is this 'clic' option is forgot accross each reboot. VoodooBattery.zip
  9. Thanks Ukhan, following your guide, I have now a running Snow Leopard installation Using the Voodoo divers at http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=175372, I have also a working Trackpad and sound (but no mic and no volume change possible). I will take a look at the VoodooHDA driver to see if I can fix these problems.

    Vostro 1720

    I've applied the modifications described by Thireus to the first release of the VoodooHDA sound driver. Now I've got the internal and external mic working (to have the volume control working, set the output to "Analog PCM #0: PCM). VoodooHDA.zip
