  1. Hey, good to find a current thread on getting SL to run on SR-2! ATM I am benching in w7, but I did try booting my Gigabyte UD5 install 10.6.2 and with just using a SR-2 DSDT I downloaded and deleting a few non required kexts. and the SR-2 booted fine. I spent some time getting my fermi GTX480 to run at 1980x1080, it works now but not 2 cards in SLI. Things outstanding to do; Sound and LAN LAN is a real dealbreaker for me so I pulled the plug and I am waiting for someone to come up with a Kext. There has been a few threads in the Hardware forums started by people trying to work it out.
  2. ALC268 legacy kext for /Extra/Extensions 32 & 64 bit

    Hi, I have been trying to get my ALC269 Audio to work on my Samsung n510 netbook for several weeks now in SL 10.6.2. VoodooHda 2.5.2 is very scratchy in sound quality although every thing works including internal mike. I have tried to patch AppleHDA using Kings tutorial but no result. Interestingly your codecs ALC268 has almost identical pins except for a minor numbering change. I have tried to patch your kext. ie change it to my verbs and Vendor ID but no result. Maybe I missed something. I have attached my Linux dump, codec graph, Verbs and pins. Please can anyone help!

  3. Samsung N510 with Snow-/Leopard?

    No distro works as nothing can see internal drive [there is no AHCI option in bios] What you need is a modded dsdt file such as this one which will enable Snow Leopard to see your samsung drive.dsdt.aml.zip I have SL running very well on n510 except for scratchy sound and a couple of minor issues will be posting guide soon and asking for help with sound issue
  4. HP Mini 311 Darwin Project Thread (Part II - CURRENT)

    On another positive note: I have the Samsung n510 ION LE and specs are very similar; in fact I have used proto's archive almost exclusively except for the DSDT.aml and the Trackpad kexts. For which I had to use the VoodooPS2 kexts. Everything works as per your experience. The digital web cam in the n510 doesnt have the dark problem and deep sleep work great. Only real mod was installing an apple mini PCI airport card. I have exactly the same sound problem with the static but did get the internal mic working using the voodoo pref pane FYI i had to enable wake S3 with usb in pheonix bios to get the screen to wake from sleep. Not sure if you have the same option.
  5. SL on SAMSUNG N510 ION Netbook

    This should get you going! BOOT_n510.zip Im at work so later will post a more comprehensive explanation later. You need to add mach_kernel_modbin . from the HP 311 thread here into Root with the Boot file after installing Chameleon RC3 Then lastly and the VoodooHDA.kext for SL in S/L/E from the same thread to get sound [not perfect still with some static] In fact the Samsung internals are so similar to the HP mini 311 you can read that thread for more info!
  6. SL on SAMSUNG N510 ION Netbook

    @comatron Only thing I can think of at present if you dont have a working use Gparted Live to format Hfs with MBR and restore boot files in windows using MacDrive 8. Much easier to get a working os x on other machine first using a distro. Update: Trackpad working using Voodoo method here Also Keyboard cuts out on Battery, not sure why? any ideas? turning off sleep seem to help EDIT Keyboard fixed after installing Voodoo Trackpad above Sound Working with VoodooHDA but some static[the HP 311 guys are onto this as its the last thing they need to solve] Only internal mic and sound quality to fix and we could say this baby is 100% SL compatible

    Sucessful Snow Leopard Retail Install on to Samsung N510 Netbook 1.Installed Retail Snow Leopard Retail to External USB Drive Plugged into N510 using USB stick made bootable with NetBookInstaller 2.This got me to Vanilla Desktop then installed Chameleon RC3 to External Drive and copied Kexts from first post here put into /Extra/Extensions and rebuilt Kext Cache by dropping extensions folder onto Kext Utility 3. Copied the boot file and mach_kernel_modbin from same post and overwrote Chameleon boot in SL root. 4. Added n510 neodoughnut DSDT 5. Booted into SL on external drive and now internal drive visible as emulated AHCI 6. Used Disk utility to clone OS X partition on external drive to internal drive 7. Reboot to internal drive Still sound and and possibly trackpad to fix
  8. SL on SAMSUNG N510 ION Netbook

    Yeeeeehaaaa!!! I added your DSDT and the Boot stuff and kexts from the HP 311 thread and I am in SL and can see my internal Drive. It is recognised as a AHCI disk in the Profiler. I also have done the apple wireless mini PCI mod and Airport works. Ethernet OK. Video at 1366x768 and reporting as NVIDIA ION LE only thing that seem to need work is the sound.
  9. SL on SAMSUNG N510 ION Netbook

    Yes I can also confirm also no easy switch hidden in Bios for turning AHCI on and I tried Leopard, no luck. unfortunately I am a NooB as far as creating a custom DSDT goes. Good luck Neodoughnut - this machine would be soooo much nicer running SL instead of W7 or Linux I will start reading up on DSDT..... and praying

    These guys seem to have a handle on things; http://www.sammynetbook.com/plugins/forum/...topic.php?36219 scroll down to second from last post EDIT: Windows 7 drivers now up here: http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/detail/s..._sub_class_cd=P But no Bios as of yet! cant be long before they release one
  11. SL on SAMSUNG N510 ION Netbook

    its worth starting a new thread if someone hasn't in the next couple of days. I am waiting till the 22nd when the new bios may be out. I guess the samsung at the moment isn't as popular as the HP. I dont care personally. Ive got it Dual booting with W7 ultimate and Ubuntu. It plays 1080p HD video very smoothly with the right software. If I can get SL running I will be very happy as we use macs at work.

    Samsung N510-KA02 Technical Specifications: Processor: Intel Atom N280 (1.66 GHz, 512KB L2 cache, 667 MHz FSB) Chipset: Nvidia Ion Memory: 1GB Display: 11.6 “HD WXGA (1366×768) Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 9400M Hard disk: 160GB SATA Networking: Wireless 802.11 b / g / n, Bluetooth, Ethernet LAN Digital Webcam Ports: 3 USB: 1 HDMI: 1 RGB: Memory card reader 3-in-1 Battery: Lithium-Ion 6-cell Snow Leopard Retail installed fine on external USB drive so no problems generally. On the HP 311 ION thread they mention that AHCI only became available in the second Bios release. So far we haven't even had bios 1 for the Samsung. Maybe next weeks W7 version will include new bios with the W7 drivers. If not is it possible to use IDE mode?
  13. Dual boot no problem with W7 64bit, no need to select in bios. I have Snow on the primary boot drive and windows on other physical drive which I am able to select in Chameleon. I did install windows first although I don't know if this has any significance.
  14. Somewhat non conventional install as I did most of this before DD released his new script. Everything working!! Pretty sure this will only work on UD5. if nothing else the addition of 10.5 IOnetworkfamily.kext to fix ethernet and using ALC889a.kext with HDAEnabler.kext to fix sound may help someone with their SL install. 1: Format HD GUID 2: Install SL in 10.5.8 using Command-Control-G to access install pkg on SL dmg 3: Install Chameleon r431 and Chameleon SL Support 4: Copied [delete old extra folder] Extra folder from from cybex's boot.dmg to Snow Leopard Extra 5: Copied UUID of SL HD to com.apple.boot.plist in Extra Folder [find it using disk utility] 5: Now installed a kext from DD new script to enable his buildcache script. I Installed HDAEnabler.kext to fix Audio in Snow leopard as only ALC889a.kext didn't do it for me. 6: Booted into SL single user and rebuilt kexts from DD's post here 7: In SL copied IOnetworkfamily.kext from DD's previous leopard [10.5] to extra Fixes Network I am booting without -x32 switch and everything's working including timemachine cybex's boot.dmg from http://www.snowx86.com Also use the GA-EX58-UD5 dsdt from cybex's boot.dmg cybex's post
