    Look out for "SmartScroll". For the right settings, refer to the osx86 wiki. Regards Matthias

    Very cool to see backlight is making progress as well! The package works as described for me, it's even useable -- the first two or three steps of the slider dim the screen evenly, so i can use them to save energy on the road. If you go further "into the dark side", the left side will be dark much quicker than the right, as described. Unfortunately, the steps using the keyboard are too wide -- the first step back is already unevenly lit. I don't have much knowledge about the whole dsdt thing, so i'm afraid i can't be of much help -- but i'm glad to test stuff... Thinkpad X61 Tablet SXGA+ 7762-94G. Now with line-out and (some) backlight brightness control Regards Matthias

    Hey, the line out working is fantastic news! Works great. Finally i can get rid of this awful usb sound stick. I recently solved another issue i had with OSX on X61T: The no-sleep-with-BT-error and general USB errors i had since updating to 10.5.6. I had very flaky USB support after updating to 10.5.6, ranging from everything working to some usb ports disappearing to no usb at all, no bluetooth, no nothing. Trying to solve this issue, i first installed the patched drivers from the "USB2.0 for Leopard"-Thread ( http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=117029 ), which unfortunately didn't change anything. Then, i got rid of AppleHPET.kext as recommended by some users -- and USB was back to full functionality, including all ports and bluetooth, and has been that way since then. And the bonus: After i got it back to work, i discovered i can now sleep my machine without having to disable bluetooth first, probably thanks to the patched drivers! This is a real step forward not having to toggle the hardware switch everytime i want the machine to sleep. Now it can go asleep on it's own, .... The only issues remaining for me are ethernet not coming back up after sleep (sometimes solveable by "sudo ifconfig en0 down; sudo ifconfig en0 up", but not always ), and the lacking screen brightness control. I we ever achieve that, we have the perfect hackbook in our hands, i think...much better than the Macbook i use at work right now, with its awful low-res display and sharp plastic edges. Hope to help some Regards Matthias
  4. Hey there, a simple solution for the "no network after sleep" problem: - get Sleepwatcher, a daemon for executing commands/shellscripts on sleep/wakeup events. - modify the /etc/rc.wakeup by adding ifconfig en0 down ifconfig en0 up voila, network interface is reset after wakeup from sleep and works normally, including DHCP (on my Thinkpad X61 Tablet, at least). Unfortunately, this doesn't work 100% of the time for me, but 99% -- i have no clue, why it finally doesn't work every now and again. YMMV. You might have to check if en0 is really your ethernet interface and change it accordingly. This solution (especially the "ifconfig en0 down; ifconfig en0 up") has been floating around the net, it's not my original idea, but i thought i'd pass it on as it worked good for me, especially in combination with Sleepwatcher. Best regards Matthias
