  1. LMcG, Funny, the day you posted your new info, I wrote a reply saying that I would look into these pointers you provided, I must have gotten interrupted and never posted. I'm very interested and just need to squeeze some time out. My wife's m1330 died a while ago with the overheating motherboard short but I recent bought a replacement and again just need some time to do the swap. My 1530 is running OK but I'd like to get c-states working and I am very interested in what is causing my batteries to burn out (become unable to take a full charge). I think I can help since I'm the one who interpolated the m1530 shutdown fix and I've delved into the acpi spec enough to be dangerous. Essentially though, I think the others are right, these machines are out-dated and have lost momentum. A lot of people who pioneered work on OSX86 are tired of battling against closed specs (e.g. MCP7 series from Nvidia) and poor/cryptic DSDT implementations from vendors and are just buying real Macs. I know I've considered it. I originally got into hacks are a way to get OSX in the door in my house. I put together 5 hacks, m1330, m1530, two gigabyte uATX systems and an AOpen mini-itx system. When the m1330 died, I got my wife a macbook air. I've since rebuilt some mac-minis to seed into my family and ditched Windows (yeah!). At this point the m1530 and the AOpen which besides occasionally having an annoying CMOS reset on power outages, works perfectly, are the only active hacks. So the m1530 is the only motivator for me to invest time (other than a drive to fix things and figure things out). Long-winded but anyway, I agree with Immo, your contributions are appreciated.
  2. Oh well, I mentioned it only because you were having some troubles with 10.6.8. But hey Lion is the future anyway. @LatinMcG No I haven't run into the video problem switching from Windows but prolly only because, though I used to triple boot Vista/Ubuntu/OSX back in the 10.5 days, after about a year I realized I was never using anything but OSX so when I switched to an SSD I ditched Windows and Ubuntu.
  3. Farhanito, I use a completely different set of kexts for 10.6.8. All of mine are in /Extra/Extensions except VoodooSDHC and AppleHDA which are installed with kextutil into /S/L/E. I tend to eschew the voodoo stuff because I want to be as vanilla as possible and it requires installation into /S/L/E/. Why do you need the bluetooth kext? Mine works OOTB both on my 1530 and my wife's 1330. Also what does AnyiSightCam do? Does it improve the crappy frame rate that you get OOTB? Here is what I have in /E/E AppleACPIBatteryManager.kext FakeSMC.kext AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext IntelThermal.kext AppleHDA.kext NVClockX.kext ApplePS2Controller.kext SuperIOFamily.kext AppleHDA is just there for storage, I install it with kextutil into /S/L/E after almost every update. The AppleHDA mic doesn't work but I don't much care, speaker works fine. The version of FakeSMC supports monitoring in the title bar and that is why I have IntelThermal, NVClockX and SuperIOFamily in there. I don't get the fancy two axis control in the touchpad that you get with Voodoo but I don't care. It works without problems. The only other kext I use is VoodooSDHC installed into /S/L/E using kextutil. This is one the voodoo boys really got right. It works and doesn't get in the way of updates or anything. I'm not saying this is the way to go. I'm just saying this works for me. /Dlach
  4. That is next, prolly this weekend. But I don't anticipate trouble since farhanito reported success
  5. Yep, I used the following command line patch sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x75\x30\x44\x89\xf8|\xeb\x30\x44\x89\xf8|; s|\x75\x3d\x8b\x75\x08|\xeb\x3d\x8b\x75\x08|' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTC.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleRTC on my desktop hack after I installed Lion using Maldon's USB stick procedure from the InsanelyMac Forum / OSx86 Project / OSx86 Installation / OSx86 10.7 (Lion)/ Lion installation via USB stick using Chameleon, DP4, GM and FINAL sticky. HERE The patch worked but not until I cleared the caches (the prelinked kernel may have been overkill): sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel sudo kextcache -system-caches And then rebooted.
  6. Would you please tell us how you did the Lion install? Yes you want to use one of the DSDTs from the first post that were modified for 10.6.8.
  7. Looks like both you and Talisman have backed off of Lion. I poked around about this RTC reset on wake problem and it looks like this command line patch works for someone people: sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x8b\x45\xc8\x39\x45\xcc\x74\x0b|\x8b\x45\xc8\x39\x45\xcc\xeb\x0b|; s|\x8b\x45\xb4\x39\x45\xb8\x74\x08|\x8b\x45\xb4\x39\x45\xb8\xeb\x08|' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTC.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleRTC Update: It is also reported that using the AppleRTC.kext from snow works. Ugly but it is a temporary work around. And this seems to be the current command line patch: sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x75\x30\x44\x89\xf8|\xeb\x30\x44\x89\xf8|; s|\x75\x3d\x8b\x75\x08|\xeb\x3d\x8b\x75\x08|' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTC.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleRTC
  8. Luggi, Holgix RN5 et al.. Would you guys please add your system config to your signature so we can tell want platforms you are commenting on/posting kexts for? thanks, Dlach
  9. Just a few pages back there was some news about the trackpad and a new kext I think. Did you look there?
  10. Just a reminder that you all can solve your resume issues with audio and LAN by laying about $30-40 more for usb audio and a pci-e ethernet card as I detailed a few other times in this thread. I use this board as an HTPC and it works flawlessly sleeping and resuming. Even after I got it working I wound up not using the wired LAN and got a PCI-E to mini PCI-e adapter on ebay then got a dell mini-PCI wireless n card (again on ebay). This is recognized as an airport and works perfectly. Thank to Oleg and e60 for taking over this thread and helping folks out. I've wound up working on other board once I moved this to my HTPC. Am currently looking at a mini-itx h67 build. Tonymac is a great second resource for this stuff.

    [GUIDE] Leopard on an XPS 1330/1530

    Why are you following instructions from something posted in 2009? OK. now with the help. The good news is you have a retail OSX disc, at least you're not trying to use "distros". My advice is to start over. Go to immo's thread linked in my signature and follow the instructions there using a generic DSDT for your machine. Literally dozens of people have done this if not hundreds without problems. Be sure to read the first post carefully. I recommend using the SuperHai bootCD (also linked in my signature). You don't need to generate or modify a DSDT for a m1330 or m1530, you can use the "anyCPU" dsdt.aml files there. If you get in trouble look around in the posts there before posting and you'll get help.
  12. I don't suppose some kind soul who changed Brett's 1530 AnyCPU dsdt to remove the usb psw methods would post their aml? Perhaps Immo would update post 1 with such a file if it existed.
  13. I suspect most of you would benefit from going to immo's post and following the instructions there for doing a retail install with the generic 1330 DSDT. Everything works for nvidia folks except shutdown and occasionally restart doesn't. There is a link in my signature. Using the chameleon 2 bootloader in the new releases section of this forum and stay away from distros like iatkos. Shell out the $ for a retail DVD.
  14. love your pic, don't love your idea to use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Follow immo's guide and do a retail install. You won't have sleep or shutdown issues, everything just work except reboot.
  15. MorLipf, Lots of roaring about 10.7 going on in the "new releases and updates" sub-forum. From what I've gleaned so far, some peoples DSDTs are now causing HPET KPs while for some, it works. DSDT seems not to be the main issue though, it is the bootloader that has changed significant as well as some of the kexts e.g. audio. I know I don't need to rush to get 10.7 working since it isn't even final and frankly I'm thinking it may be that my m1530 just isn't the right platform for it. Bought the wife a MB air and it is nice not worrying about hacks so I may just pony up the $ for a MBP. It will hurt but only for a little while.
