    Samsung NC10 UK revision

    I believe you are correct: skype crashes because there is no mic in the system. you can do as someone else said and get a bluetooth mic, or you could also just get an external usb mic - that should work too.

    @Rukawa- I THINK you should be able to: 1. Download the 10.5.6 combo update pkg from Apple and mount the disk image. 2. Download the Mysticus C 10.5.6 fix from Biketown. It is in the "update" section, and go down to the "related files" flashing link he's put there. It is the NC10 10.5.6 Install.pkg.zip. Put the program on your desktop. 3. Run the 10.5.6 combo update from Apple, but DO NOT restart at the end. Instead, just minimize it. 4. Run the Mysticus 10.5.6 install - it will fix your drivers. 5. Then you should be able to restart via the Apple combo update installer that you minimized and be in 10.5.6. I have not done this with the Jas distro myself, but I THINK it should work. If not, then no harm since you'd likely be re-installing the 10.5.6 iso anyway. This worked for me using the msiwindosx86 install thought.

    In case folks were interested, Dense posted a couple of screen shots (sort of) of the progress being made on the audio driver. You can see the post here: http://forums.msiwind.net/mac/hda-audio-so...t-t7626-40.html Unfortunately, it looks like the voodoo team isn't quite done yet, but it is nice to see the progress they are making.

    Tags, Why don't you try using gparted or parted magic first? I know that parted magic will let you resize partitions (and add more partitions) without necessarily messing up your install. That said, no program is perfect - so it might mess up your install. But since you are planning on reinstalling anyways you might as well try one of these other programs first and see if it will work. It might save you some time.

    Sorry for the confusion! I was purely referring to the exchange between myself and rukawa . You've done great work here, and certainly where we all have gotten our NC10 up to right now is NOT behind anyone else!!!! Once voodoo comes through with the sound driver, I think our OSX NC10s will be untouchable... nope. mysticus made a post-10.5.6 patch that you can download at Biketown: nc10_10.5.6_install.pkg.zip is the name of the file. Then you will still have to do the brightness fix, trackpad fix, and you "might" have to do the AzaliaAudio (I say "might" because I wasn't sure if I had to do this because I had messed up something earlier). You can find the Azalia around the boards.

    Agreed... rukawa - I think we're wasting some of the space on this board with this most basic discussion! It depends on how you do it. If you go the windosx86 route, you can do the ddmac procedure described by Mysticus or you can simply install it via an external dvd drive (making sure you've created the proper partition for it). Once that is installed, you then make sure you have mysticus' 10.5.6 fix downloaded and sitting on your desktop, and make sure you download the 10.5.6 combo update from Apple. Run the combo update, stopping short of the restart at the end. Then do the Mysticus fix, then do the restart. Okay, out of respect for the rest of the folks who are using this board, I think we should discontinue this particular thread of discussion, as it is WAY behind where everyone else is at. Besides, I'm anxious to see what Mysticus has to say about the full audio fix which has been rumored to be coming...

    @rukawa- There are many different "builds" out there for putting OSX on various non-Mac machinese: ideneb, Jas, windosx86, etc., and they all have various differences in terms of what they install (I can't tell you the details of those differences because I'm too much of a noob myself to know). Mysticus' guide uses the Jas 10.5.4 version in combination with Mac updates and various fixes he's developed (Thanks Mysticus!). If you follow his guide, then you need to download the Jas ISO, or there is a mysticus version of the Jas ISO specifically for the NC10 out there too - all of this is outlined in great detail in the guide. You should read it to understand these basic questions. FYI - I, however, am running windosx86, 10.5.4, on my NC10. I then used the Mac combo update to 10.5.6, and ran Mysticus' fix to make the update work. I then followed the stuff after about page 105 of his guide to do various patches for brightness. I also had to install the AzaliaAudio.pkg in order to get sound back coming out of my speakers (still no internal mic, line in or line out though). No matter what, I strongly recommend reading the available in a link on the first post of this board before proceeding. It will answer a lot of questions.

    @arsix Fn + F8 does nothing on my NC10 in OSX. I am running msiwindos86x + 10.5.6 update + Mysticus' fix + brightness + AzaliaAudio. I also get 4-5 hours of battery, especially with the brightness turned down.

    Mysticus or any other non-noob folks posting here - Has anyone tried using Taruga's HDA Patch as discussed elsewhere on the insanely mac forum to get full sound working on their NC10? Some have claimed that it even works for 10.5.5. I'm considering experimenting, but I'm still a noob myself and am worried about bricking my system.

    Andy, Two things: 1. Can you tell us what system you're running (e.g., are you up to 10.5.6 and with which distro/install?); 2. Please keep us posted on how it goes in terms of battery, etc. If it improves the functioning then we'll all probably try it.

    Jay Zee- That is what I'm saying (just did it to double check). To be sure, I don't keep Quicksilver running in the background, however. I just run the script, lower my brightness, and then turn Quicksilver off. But even then, after lowering my brightness, I can go to sleep, wake it back up, and the brightness is still at the lowered setting I left it at. And, just in case I'm reading your question another way: The Quicksilver script also works when I make adjustments after waking from sleep (but again, I wake computer, I run Quicksilver, alter brightness, then quit Quicksilver). I realize that you may keep Quicksilver running all of the time, so I don't know if what I'm talking about here applies to the issue you are finding.

    Jay Zee- You are clearly way more advanced than I am on the programming side, but I thought I would let you know that I had updated the bios to 04CA before doing a complete msiwindos86x re-install and update to 10.5.6 and I had no EDB problem and the brightness script worked fine. (I had to reinstall after bricking the 10.5.5 upgrade and realized I only needed the 10.5.6 combo plus the mysticus fix).

    Realtec ALC272

    Anyone figured out/made/found the driver for Realtek alc272? I'm running a Samsung nc10, with 10.5.6. I used the msiwindos86x install, upgraded to 10.5.6, then used Mysticus C's nc10 patch to make things right. The AzaliaAudio.pkg works in that it provides external sound, but headphone and mic do not work. Some have gotten the chud audio switch to work as well to move between the headphones and external speakers - but I would love to get a fully functioning mic/headphone/speaker combination going.

    Mysticus or Niteman or anyone else who might be able to help: I'm at 10.5.6, using MSIWindos86x, upgraded from 10.5.4 with the help of Mysticus' NC10 fix. (Thanks Mysticus!). Everything is working well, except for one thing: I lost my sound Now, I installed the chud package via Biketown, but didn't know what to do with it - so realize I may have messed up my sound (or not) by loading it. I also may have messed up my sound in the upgrade to 10.5.6 as well. Is there a simple fix for me to get my sound back? Could it be as easy as using Mysticus' 10.5.5 fix and making sure the correct sound driver is checked (but making sure not to check anything else)? Also, any word on how to make chud work would be appreciated. Thanks to Mysticus and everyone else working hard on the OSX install on the nc10. EDIT 1/2/09: Just found the AzaliaAudio.pkg and reloaded it. Worked a charm.

    Niteman, Thanks for the info. Unfortunately I bricked it during the 10.5.5 upgrade. So after much time and frustration, I figured something out: Because the 10.5.6 is a combo update, you can totally SKIP the 10.5.5 upgrade and fix completely. Instead, on a hunch, I just installed the 10.5.6 combo, and then did Mysticus' NC10 10.5.6 fix (plus the track pad and brightness controls) - and it worked! Finally, I have a stupid question (total noob, really): I installed the CHUD package, but really, I'm not sure what to do with it. Do I have to do something special to get it to do the switch? Or by installing it did I end up just putting the switch in? Thanks. abirch: just change your settings on both sides so that they set the clock via the internet. then, whenever you get on, it will fix itself. however, the clock stays consistent as long as you don't switch between each OS (e.g., when I just continue using OSX, the clock is fine). I'm not sure why this all happens, but this is a really small price to pay for having the dual boot, imho.
