    Samsung N130

    Quick top to get the full power (!) or the weak N270 while on battery (e.g. to be able to watch movies in the best conditions): open a terminal and type in the command "sudo pmset -b 3" ...

    Samsung N130

    I am planning to install an SSD hard-drive in my N130 (just ordered a Corsair Force Series 3 - 120 GB). I expect the process to be relatively straight forward, but I might be a bit optimistic. I'm still running 1.6.3. Any advice ?

    Sorry but I cannot really help you on this. Just for info, I did not disable the "USB legacy support" in the BIOS of the computer, maybe this can help.

    Did anyone tried and/or succeeded in upgrading his N130 to 10.6.8 ? I tried but could not... I end up with a machine that is unable to boot: kernel panic due to a problem in a driver called com.deterministicnetworks.driver.dne. Not sure which extension it is related to. I also tried to upgrade from 10.6.3 to 10.6.7. For this I had to remove the VoodooHDA driver and after a few unsucessful reboots trying to play with the "-x", "recovery=y" finally I manage to get a stable OSX 10.6.7 running... But everything was running very slow, not sure if it was because of the kernel of QE not enable, but the whole thing was really slower than before. I am restoring my 10.6.3 backup because right now I do not have much time to look for solutions...

    Sean, If you look at the system requirements on the Amazon page it says: Product Description: Mac OS X Snow Leopard - ( v. 10.6 ) - version upgrade package In theory this version only allows you to UPGRADE to SL. From what I know you can still use it to install SL from scratch, but then you would not have a valid license to use it.

    No problem with mine, working just fine under Windows 7 starter after installing the proper drivers from Dell...

    Not quite sure where I got the kext from, I think it is from the projectosx.com pages, probably this one: link From what I understand, there are two forks of the VoodooHDA project, one is hosted on Google Code and has been dormant for a while, and an other fork is actively being developed by Russian coders and can be found on projectosx.com. I've just realized that the "official" fork (on Google) has released a version 2.7 lately, maybe worth to give a try ? For the sound level problem: do you have the VoodooHDA control panel installed ? If so then you have to play with both panel, the OSX Sound control panel and the VoodooHDA panel. Change the sound level and gain level to whatever is good for you. Then use the voodoohdahelper to "save and restore" the sound levels at boot. Hope this helps.

    Re 1: To save battery life you need to lower the power of the backpanel light. This can be done through the control panel, or, on my N130, using Fn+F12 ... Re 2: In my case the problem ceased as soon as the right kext was in place. Weird to see that in you case it does not help... We could probably compare our configs and try to find where the differences are... Where do you install your custom kext ? I put everything in /S/L/E. In my VoodooHDA kext the Info.plist shows: <string>0.2.6</string>

    Well done, this is very cool. Two remarks though: 1. Shades does not reduce the backlight level, it only darkens the screen via the LCD. That means that you will not save battery by lowering the brightness via Shades. 2. It looks like you still have the mic feedback problem, for me the fix is to install the Voodoo HDA kext in its 2.6.0 release (fix found here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=...it=feedback+mic ). I also had to install a startup script to restore my sound settings at boot (see voodoohdahelper here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=219591 ).

    Well this sounds like a very good idea, unfortunately your link is broken (error 404). Thanks.

    Are you sure the original card is full height ? On my N130 it was half-height as well. You probably don't need much to hold it in place; the mini-PCI connector itself should be enough.

    Yes, it's the half-height mini-PCI 1510, which does Wifi N...

    Running Hackintosh in public place

    Okey, this happened to me two days ago: In a meeting, a colleague sitting right next to me started to ask me questions like 'is it Linux? is it a Mac OS theme or what?' Then it took me five minutes of tense debate to convince him that it was OSX running for real on my Samsung, not a fake or something. Yesterday I received an email from him asking if I could help on installing it on his own netbook...

    Hi, Sorry for the delay. I'm not sure if we have the same model of Ethernet chipset, here is mine: What do you mean exactly by "Can you please post our IONetworking kext" ? Do you want the binary file ?
