I extracted it and installed it at /system/library/extensions I also chown and chmod the file to appropriate permissions I removed /system/library/Extensions.mkext & rebooted. Yet.

  5. In attempts to locate a resource which allows me to use my intel pro wireless card within Leopard 10.5.6, it is not possible. However, this site is selling laptops with Snow Leopard which supports Intel Pro Wireless 3945abg. http://laptoping.com/compamerica-snow-leopard-6220.html Could someone confirm that Intel Pro Wireless 3945abg does work out of the box with standard Snow Leopard installation? Thank you :-)
  6. After installing the iwi3945.kext and rebooting, the Applications "NetworkSelector" appears with the following menu options. 1) turn card on/off 2) start scan 5) close program 0) refresh When reviewing this site: http://code.google.com/p/iwidarwin/wiki/NetworkSelector I should be seeing this on my menu 1) Turn card off 2) Network List 3) Switch led 4) Change mode 5) Close Program 0) Refresh Enter Option: Problem - My NetworkSelector does not show all menu options. Ifconfig command shows my wireless device as follows: en0: flags=8863<up,broadcast,smart,running, simplex, multiciast> mtu 1500 ether 00:18:de:0d:d8:ad media autoselect status: inactive supported media: autoselect Question: 1) how do I get all menu options in NetworkSelector 2) how do I configure my wireless settings so I can configure to use WPA & passprase, channel#.... my access point does NOT broadcast SSID* Thank you!

  9. Hello, I'm using Fedora 11 w/ VMWare workstation 6.5 & have created a machine w/ Leopard 10.5.6. I encounter Kernel Stack errors after submiting the -v command at boot: For practicle matters when troubleshooting, I disabled the sound, usb and dropped cpu's from 2 to 1. Still get same error. I am attaching log file for you review. If you know how to resolve, I'd like to know. Thank you, mikntwd excerpt from log file: Jul 02 02:18:05.873: vcpu-0| APIC: version = 0x14, max LVT = 5 Jul 02 02:18:05.873: vcpu-0| APIC: LDR = 0x2000000, DFR = 0xffffffff Jul 02 02:18:05.902: vcpu-0| HV enabled Jul 02 02:18:05.909: vcpu-0| VMM64 initialized Jul 02 02:18:05.915: vcpu-0| MonitorInitNumaUnmapVMM64 Jul 02 02:18:06.170: vcpu-0| Triple fault.

  10. After entering the command(s) at boot: prompt, the vmware machine (VMWare Workstation 6.5) keeps rebooting. I cannot progress any further to get to the Disk utilities as to partition the virtual disk for MAC OSX. I've tried from boot: "Graphics Mode"="1024x768x32" -v & "-x platform=APCI" The CD-ROM is set to boot of ISO image (full retail of leopard). How do I get the installation to progress further without it rebooting after entering the commands? Thanks! mikntwd
  11. iDeben 10.5.5 blue screen

    I'm using the Ideben 10.5.5 1.3 ISO on DVD
  12. when installing, the command at boot: -v doesn't provide any results. when choosing to allow the system boot for install, the gray apple screen appears. Problem- the install seems to hang at the BLUE iDeben screen with a rainbow colorful circular mouse. I presume this is before the GUI install setting selections & hard disk utility. How do I get the boot option -v to work? And how do I get past this blue ideben screen? Many Thanks and Merry Christmas!
  13. When clicking on this link, 404 page not found error. Also, where are instructions to install this patch? http://ideneb.insanelymac.net/index.php/la...orce-patch.html Thanks! and Merry Christmas
  14. Leopard 10.5.5 (iDeben) Boot: Prompt

    I was able to get around the boot: prompt. However, after the Grey Apple Scree the blue iDeneb screen appears with a colorful round circle, mouse pointer. It just stays there on this screen " Then a Blue iDeneb screen will appear". Any other ideas? Thanks!
  15. I've started to install iDeben 10.5.5 v.1.3 ISO. upon initial boot as to install, I'm facing a boot prompt like this: Press Enter to start up Darwin/x86 with no options, or you can: Type -v and press Enter to start up with diagnostic messages Type ? and press Enter to learn about advanced startup options boot: When I hit Enter by itself, it goes no further. If I type -v and press Enter, a quick screen appears bearing a statement similar to: "/Com.Apple.Boot.Slist not found" I'm running Dell Precision M65 dual core T7200 2Ghz Intel mobile chipset, 2GB RAM, SATA hard drive 80GB Feel free to provide some suggestions as what can be done to proceed further. Thanks! Mikntwd
