    Has anybody successfully installed sleepenabler on 10.6.5?

    I suggest you to try GraphicsEnabler = Yes in the boot.plist file. Don't add any video injector during the installation.
  3. VoodooPowerMini 1.2.4 for 10.6.x

    What are the best VoodooPowerMini settings that minimize CPU speed and power consumption? I feel that battery life under osx is considerably shorter than in win (2 vs 4 hours). I have Lenovo G550 notebook.

    Good for you! Unfortunately, mine has got an intel 5100 card and there is no any support for it. I've bought a wifi->usb adaptor.

    What wireless card do you have?

    I just wonder - is there any way to replace the G550 wifi card without to damage the warranty?

    My story of successful installation: 1. Installation image - SnowOSX uniflash. 2. Video support for Nvidia G 105M - out of the box! Just add <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>yes</string> to com.apple.Boot.plist. All resolutions are accessible. Video playback is ok. 3. Sound - VoodooHDA. 4. TouchPad - no taps. Tried to install VoodooPS2Controller and to replace Trackpad.prefPane. Still no taps. 5. Power management and battery control - VoodooBattery.kext and VoodooPowerMini.kext. 6. WiFi Intel 5100 - doesn't work. I'm buying a wifi usb adapter.
  8. I'm trying to install Snow Leo on Lenovo G550 using SnowOSX uniflash distribution. The installation was very easy, but, for some reason I'm not able to make the Nvidia G 105M videocard working. The only accessibel resolution is 1024x768 (while the native is 1366x768) The first try was to add <key>GraphicsEnabler</key><string>yes</string> to the Boot.plist file. No effect. Deletion of NVInject.kext changed nothing. The same effect in both x32 and x64 boot mode. The second option is Enabler_for_Nvidia_and_multiple_ATI_cards.pkg. Again, tried with and without NVinject.kext, x32 and x64. Still the only resolution I can choose - 1024x768. Thanks for any help!

    Unfortunately I do need an external wifi, because my notebook is equipped with an Intel 5100 wifi card, while chems-chaos has BCM4312. Also it seems he doesn't have NVidia 105M. For example here they mention that this adapter supports OSX 10.6, but does it work with a hackintosh? Do wifi-usb adapters require drivers? I found Edimax-EW-7711UTN at a local store. The problem is that I have no idea whether it works with OSX.

    is any usb-wifi adapter good for osx? I found a lot $1 wifi adapters at eBay, but not sure whether osx is able to support them.
  11. kernel panic JMicronATAPCIRoot

    I tried to install SnowOSX 3.6 and did cd / sh MakeDSDT osx before the installation. How may I install a kext when the system isn't able to boot up? May be this is because I havn't changed the ACPI Power to S3?
  12. I'm trying to install 10.6.2 on a PC with GA P35-D3L motherboard and 8500 video card. The installation went smooth, but during the system boot I get a kernel panic can't load kext com.jmicron.jmicronata Couldn't allocate class JMicronATAPCIRoot Thank you for any help!

    Thanks a lot. A guide would be great!
  14. Best netbook for Leopard?

    Is there a 12" netbook for problemfree osx ionstallation? i think such a netbook would be a great alternative to MB

    Thanks for you reply! So everything works except WiFi? Correct? wifi is the show stopper to me
