  1. Hi again Dense! Wondering what you did to your 9300 to get your PCCard slot to work... I have a D-Link DWA-652 Wireless-N adapter which I expect to work immediately once I get the card slot working. Also... did you get 10.5.1 upgraded to 10.5.2? Any info on your wiki site yet?
  2. Enabling the PCCard / "PCMCIA" slot on the Inspiron 9300 So I've got a modified retail install of Leopard working and it's pretty stable. I just got a D-Link DWA-652 wireless-N card slot adapter but OS X doesn't seem to recognize it at all. System Profiler shows nothing for airport card (supposedly will work natively) or PCI Cards. Someone mentioned getting an older versions working on the same Dell Inspiron 9300.. said they had trouble with the PCCard slot though, but no details. Any idea what I have to do to get Leopard to recognize my card slot and this adapter?? I'm a little iffy on pulling old 10.4.8 kext's into 10.5.1; my 10.4.8 networking wasn't very reliable and I don't want that again if avoidable. It's supposedly an Atheros AR5416 chipset. Thanks! *bump*
  3. atheros wlan miniPCI

    oh {censored}, perfect! Someone with the same laptop and a similar card (I just picked up a DWA-652 - N v2.0 draft) for use with my new DIR-655 router. Kinda bummed after sliding it into the cardslot that.... nothing happens. No LED, no console log messages... What did you have to do to get the PCCard slot working? I'm guessing I had the same issue you did (doesn't even seem to be recognized...) Thanks! C
  4. dwa-552 support

    Can anyone confirm this? They have this router for $120 at costco, looks like it gets very good reviews, and if I could get wireless working with an N adapter it might be worth the money. Actually it looks like for the PCMCIA notebook adapter I'd want the DWA-652. T.I.A.!
  5. iCal crash with Kalyway

    I was hoping so, but no, because I got my nVidia 6800 Go working again (had the same issue as user above - 10.4.8 worked at first, but had some sort of leak that killed it after a lot of network throughput, and 10.5.1 has random app crashes). Graphics are working great again, but iCal still crashes with a "segmentation fault" showing up as the only Console error-text. This sucks, I was really relying on iCal, but because of incompatibilities with Google Cal, was going to change. Now I have to without getting to see if 10.5's iCal is better. And somehow I gotta port my 6 iCal calendars to Google or whatever. ugh.
  6. I have Kalyway 10.5.1 working on my laptop, but even with this fairly new install DVD, iCal crashes: 1/10/08 5:34:06 PM com.apple.launchd[102] ([0x0-0x3c03c].com.apple.iCal[449]) Exited abnormally: Segmentation fault I can find very little referring to this, so I take it most people don't have this issue, or don't use iCal. I may have to make that switch to Google Calendar after all (was hoping to test out 10.5.1's ical first, see if it works with google better!)..
  7. I have the Inspiron 9300 with the nvidia 6800 Go 256mb. I had it working in 10.4.8 - in fact, I think it was the best part of my mod then. But my permissions and users got trashed and the only recovery was to finally install Kalyway 10.5.1 on top. Things are working except for: 1. iCal broken - is there a fix? Sounds common. 2. I can't get full support with QE/CI at 1440x900 working with Titan or any of the recent "nvidia packages" such as Punk92's or Alex's 8x00 installer for Leo Only. I've had all sorts of variations of kext's with my specific 0x00c810de ID in the Info.plist's and I either lock up on boot, or get the generic no-QE 1024x768 video. What specific packages do you guys with this card (Dense, i9300 ?) use to get things working again? I had NVinject-Go, non-Go, Natit, and Titan which used to work - can't get it working. Not sure which of the NVDA* extensions I should have, not have, and/or have my ID in or left-as-is. Thanks all! CPngN Working in 10.5.1: sound, ethernet BX440, sleep... kinda. It doesn't blank the display, but then again I don't have video working right yet. All my old Mail and keychains stayed in a renamed /Users/username/ -> /Users/username-old/ folder, which I then copied pieces over into my new /Users/username/ folder. whew!
  8. I don't know how or when this happened, but I seem to have lost root privileges on my hackintosh 10.4.8. I went to install the free 1passwd they're offering and it naturally asked me for my pass. Failed. Looked in Accounts, my only non-root/guest login "cpn" is now a "Standard" user. I boot with Acronis boot selector so doing the Apple+S trick to get into single user mode is hard or impossible to do now. I can't edit Boot.plist cuz..... I need the root password! W T F?!?! :censored2: Anyone have ANY idea how I can repair this? I was just about to try 10.5.1 too, but I'd like to fix this first! (Maybe I don't need to..? hmm) Some info from Terminal: N2OSX:~ cpn$ users cpn N2OSX:~ cpn$ groups cpn appserveradm appserverusr games A bunch of things are owned by root:80. 80?!! How does stuff like this happen anyway if one is not playing with users/accounts?

  9. Intel Wireless driver

    All - I haven't touched the 2200 driver since it's first availability as a wireless driver. I'll probably still go pick up a usb adapter so I can connect securely, but I suppose turning off security and locking via MAC is better than nothing. But only if it's stable..... so... Is the current build stable enough or does it still lock up after enough data has gone through? (Was seeing things about large xfers but I got the feeling it was just after x amount of data - be it 1 xfer or over a few days). of course, I have to reboot every day now anyway, it seems, as my regular ethernet connection dies the same way. I'm wondering what a good 802.11g adapter would be to get for my Dell 9300 hackintosh so I could just avoid all this - anyone gone this route? Thanks!
  10. Finder crashes randomly !

    I'm running JaS 10.4.8 and, well.. read below. Same problems - Finder crashes randomly but often. Haven't seen anything revealing in the console logs.
  11. Intel Wireless driver

    Was about to write that it's working fine for me. But then it crashed. Or rather, dropped connection, and I can't get it back. Luckily plugging in the ethernet line switched it over. I was getting 1.5Mbps or so MAX on speedtests (I can get the full 6Mbps when wired via ethernet). Perhaps I'm connecting on 802.11b instead of g..? Also, I made the 2 changes suggested on the project page. Don't know if that helped or not. So... it works, but isn't stable, and of course no encryption and such yet. But.. it did work. Good work!!! As for using it as is right now - you can make things more secure by turning on MAC access-level filtering on your router and adding your OS X's MAC address (MAC not Mac) to the allow-list. This is a good idea anyway if you don't have random machines coming and going all the time.
  12. Intel Wireless driver

    Went to the Darwin IWI project page - somehow I missed that. Very nice. I'll try the use_10_4_8 thing and test on an open network in a bit. Don't really like the idea of an open network, broadcasting itself on top of that.. so even if it works I won't be using it until more functionality is working. :\ Good work tho all!
  13. Intel Wireless driver

    Hmm. Well I left it hidden at first, then opened the network up. But never got an IP, nor signal meter, or anything. but there was: Jan 29 14:45:15 N2OSX kernel[0]: iwi2200: associated: 'chaosnet' 00:0d:0b:cb:ab:bd Jan 29 14:57:24 N2OSX kernel[0]: iwi2200: associated: 'chaosnet' 00:0d:0b:cb:ab:bd Is it expected to fail with encryption at the moment? (ie: I'll leave later tests to unprotected unless you've gotten security to work also)
  14. Intel Wireless driver

    I installed the normal and debug versions (holy {censored} that's excessive output!). They load, and I can get the airport icon, but as soon as I try to connect to a network (didn't find it so I manually entered one), the system locks up instantly. No signal meters. Encryption on or off didn't matter. So... close, but for me, no cigar. Here's some ugly log output, I'll try to grab what seems relevant. Most of it is the same thing over and over every 1/100th of a second..

  15. Weird. Apparently it's been working for me. I can read my battery level, though in settings it will tell me things like it's at 125% (tho reads 100% on the top menu). My fan goes on and off regularly as it did in XP (ie: heats up a little, fan turn on quietly, cools off, fan disables). This didn't solve any problems with sleep or safe sleep (both still lock up, or never return the screen.. whatever happens I have to reboot). But it did solve the battery level thing. I haven't run on batteries yet, tho the wireless 2200 drivers appear to be "workable" now so if that's true I'll be testing out the battery soon too. Don't remember doing anything special aside from following the "install isntructions" which I think was nothing more than copying some files and checking permissions....?
