  1. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Vostro 220s. Looking to get the ALC662 via AppleHDA instead of VooDoo and vostro220s.zip
  2. Need driver for USB RS232 converter

    Right now, one of the best drivers (best meaning free/works but has some bugs on 10.6) is the PL-2303 USB From what I understand, there are three main chipsets for the 232<->usb converters and the most common/most used is this. Prolific, last I checked, did not update their side but there is a working fork on github of the kext im using right now on GitHub. I'm unaware of the status with the others and also have never used a chipset beyond this. I only mention the chipset here because if you go and look at the 20-50 on NewEgg, most will have this.
  3. Shutdown on low battery

  4. 10.6 NSService for a perm RM. Uses native API calls, not a cheap hack wrapping NSTask and rm http://github.com/jtbandes/delete-immediately
  5. Since Prolific looks to have no interest in updating their driver for this 232 adapter a while back, there have been a few ports to improve upon the driver. The sf.net (http://osx-pl2303.sf.net) project was first on the scene and I've seen a few forks over the years to fix/patch the buggy parts. With the 64-bit transition, we were out of luck since the code is quite old (I noticed a bit of 32bit floats that broke upon compile and don't have the knowledge of kext/cpp to translate well). Fortunately, some patches were submitted on the SF.net project page to fix this and some of the other various bugs. A person also posted a 64-bit kext that didn't work well on SL. In the past few weeks, I noticed some movement and this seems to be a working kext for 10.6/64-bit. Much thanks to his work and others submitting patches since I highly doubt Prolific is going to pickup development. Info: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?f...amp;atid=804837 Code and kext at: http://github.com/failberg/
  6. USB to RS232

    This has been upgraded to 64-bits and works. The person mentions some light patching to make it work in 64-bit/SL, and I've had luck so far, but its still a little buggy. Unfortunately, prolific looks to have disbanded interest in making this work, so this will have to do. https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?f...amp;atid=804837 http://github.com/failberg/
  7. Touchscreen software

    Beyond snips of code and the undocumented parts of 10.6 showing much more evidence this is coming, I recall something called "touchiLIB", and forget where I found it (probably google code). The name is unfortunately common to any cocoa libs designed for the iphone, but I remember that the source/base was quite comprehensive. The people developing it work for one of the firms trying to design a 3d table using a input system identical to how people use two cameras or lasers now. I think it ties in with the "OSC" protocol which I translate into what dbus/ibus does on the Linux side with making an entire layer transparent to the user when it came to input being able to be routed to more than one place at once with low latency
  8. Compile mp3val for OS X

    Not sure which method this uses since it looks like most people who make mp3/music eval/normalization software take chunks of code from the existing codecs and mash it up with a basic gaussian/alog that works for music. iTunes has this functionality built-in, and has for a while, but—of course—they do all the work and don't tag the song, only the XML db file itself, so the value it useless outside of your setup. I've used iVolume in the past and it did a great job, but also found this helped quite a bit when someone tried to get fancy and wound up encoding a mp3 improperly. Unfortunately, my in-dash mp3 player rejects these. http://triq.net/mac
  9. Newest Cider version from Gametap

    Assume this nice piece of code has been mentioned before, but when I didn't have this and had to try and figure cider out, this made it a lot easier: http://code.google.com/p/cider-file-maker
  10. I was unaware the 220s had this, but I have a 220s. I had been running iPC 10.5.4->10.5.6 retail and now just got SL working, following the better guides out there, with very minimal pains. Hardest part was getting my partitions right since I only have one and had only a usb drive to work with. Otherwise, I have a geforce7300gs (256) enabled via efi, cham2rc3, and have only had one panic so far.
  11. Dell Vostro 220

    Normally I rush to update once its determined to be remotely safe, but the sheer volume of "it looks like 10.5.6 on upgrade" -- {censored}, my system doesn't work was rather large. I'm still on 10.5.6 here. I deleted the IntelCpuPowerManagement.kext and have started to move things over to /Extra, since I'm on Cham2. So far so good. I still have a 5-minute boot up but the system works great. VoodooHDA with the Info.plist edited so verbosity is low is still working great. I only have 2ch speakers and headphones but both ports work fine. Rest of the system has no kinks. Since 10.5.6 works fine and you can edit packages to work around the 10.5.7 requirement of some of the things (iphone3sdk), I'm going to wait until SL to upgrade. I'm still learning on the Cham transition so I do not know what has to be in /Extras beyond the basic IOACHI stuff put there. A reliable post did say the disabler/etc from voodooprojects has to be there. It also mentioned that a proper setup would have everything there, stock smbios and dsdt.aml generated. It looks like ICH10 support was added into the 10.5.7 kernel so im not sure if the older modded drivers enabling 10 from 9 released back in October are needed.
  12. Dell Vostro 220

    Grabbed iPC 10.5.6 and with normal boot options, I was good to go. You must have an external pci-e card in here since the GMA4500 looks to never be supported. I got a low-profile GeForce 7300 from a friend. After I got into 10.5.6 (no hiccups from a standard path you can find well documented here), I enabled the latest NVidia drivers and bam, we were good to go. To install, disable all CPU options. I Was able to install w/o changing the SATA transfer mode, however. The only trouble, like I had in Linux is this odd sound card it has on-board. The actual chip is a Realtek ALC662 rev1, that seems to _not_ be compatable with previous implementations of the ALC662 codec work (on both mac and linux). After a few more hours, I tried voodooHDA (from 20090422) and--almost like windows--a reboot did the trick! I have only tested 2-ch audio from mp3s so far but it plays very nicely. Hope that helps others with this setup since its a great machine for cheap.
