  1. SL on Acer Aspire 8940G

    Yeah this happenes, you must touch the wifi led front next to the keyboard to switch the wifi on, you will not get any visual indication but the switch does work. Tarquin
  3. SL on Acer Aspire 8940G

    I have made an install DvD that makes it very easy, basically you put the DvD into your Aspire 8940G and boot from it. It will do a full install of SL 10.6.3 and update to 10.6.4. When you are done you are greeted with Apple's intro movie and a 100% working Aspire 8940G laptop. The DvD image (iso) is pretty large as you can expect about 5 GiG so you will have to burn it to a duel layer DvD, but it is worth it. I am just in the process of arranging a place to host the download and then I'll post the link. If you know of a place that can host it I would appreciate that.

    I have the Acer Aspire 8940G working 100% and have made a kext package for it. It will install all the kexts that you need to get your Aspire 8940G working including LAN with auto mac detection. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...498784&st=0

    I have found that VoodooHDA causes a kernel panic on boot at least 50% of the time, you just need to reboot until it boots successfully. When it has booted it does not panic, and is very stable. For this reason I am now using AppleHDA and LegacyHDA for sound. The only problem with this is that the mic does not work. I am trying to resolve this problem, any ideas are welcome. Tarquin

    Remember that only 10.6.4 is stable, it looks like Apple fixed the NVIDIA drivers in this version. Tarquin

    Sorry I forgot to attach the package. I have added it to my first post. Please post all your findings or problems here so that other people can benefit from our efforts. For those of you that were looking for a fully functional ethernet kext, one is included in the package. Tarquin

    I have finally got my Acer Aspire 8940G working 99.9% with SL. What is working: CPU: Vanilla Speedstep Vanilla Power Management Graphics: Vanilla QE/CI OpenGL/CL Network: Ethernet (I had to hex edit the 10.6.3 AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext to get it to work 100%) auto MAC address detection and no need for promisc mode. Wireless (I had to swap the WiFi minipci card with a Atheros AR5B91 to get it working) USB: Vanilla Bluetoooth: Vanilla SATA: Vanilla Audio: VoodooHDA (mike working 100%) SDHC: Working 100% (With SD Card pluged in on boot) Camera: Vanilla Battery: VoodooBattery Trackpad / Keyboard: VoodooPS2 Shutdown and Restart working 100% Hibernation working 100% Since 10.6.4 it has been stable as a rock, no crashing or freezing. The only thing that I have not managed to get working yet is sleep, but I am working on that. I have made a package that will install all the kexts, bootloader, DSDT, smbios that is needed to get it working. After you run the installer you must run the kext utility that is installed in /Applications/Utilities/Tools. This is to fix permissions. Run this installer after you have updated to 10.6.4.

  14. SL on Acer 8940G

    Hi, I have managed to get this Acer Aspire 8049G 99% working. I had to change the intel wifi 5100 for an Atheros AR5B91 wifi card. Everything else works, the card reader, firewire, HDMI, mic,speakers hd-webcam and fingerprint reader. Basically the only thing that I do not have 100% working is the LAN, it seems to work but makes the notebook run very slow and jerky. I have made a installer package and ISO specifically for the Acer Aspire 8940G, you can use it to do a complete install from scratch and everything should work. If you are interested in this ISO then PM me for the url to download it.

    Try to add an interface manually, if it appears in the add list then it is working. I have the exact same notebook (Acer Aspire 8940G) and the network interface works but has lots of packet errors. I used VoodooBattery and VoodooPowerACPI to get battery meter and power management working, but I also have the red screen freezing problem. I think that the GTS250M drivers from apple are not completely compatible (this only happens if you have QE/CI enabled and is related to OpenGL). I have a modified Natit.kext to show the correct graphics card with 1GB memory and AppleAHCIPort.kext to reflect the correct SATA controller. Also the latest fakesmc.kext will show the temps for all the CPU's. One other thing, you need to use EFI 10.6 as if you dont the clock will run at 1.5:1. If you want me to post the kexts here I can.
