    DSDT editor and patcher

    I sincerely hope my post wasn't misunderstood...I just want to know how to get the program working in Windows/Linux? I can't find an executable file that runs, just a load of different files. I'm sure it's something obvious but I'm afraid I don't have a clue!

    A couple of DSDT questions

    Honestly I'd really prefer to learn to do it myself, I'm not after a quick fix because next time I need to do something then I want to be able to do it myself, rather than asking for help again Never heard of Chameleon Wizard before though, I'll have to check it out! Thanks

    A couple of DSDT questions

    Thanks for the advice, I suspected as much! There's never an easy fix, but I guess that's part of the attraction in doing all this lol I'd love to learn more about DSDT and how to create strings and stuff to use for it, but I just don't know where to start. Do you know of any good tutorials etc? I've looked through the DSDT I've got but can't really make heads or tails of it at the moment.

    A couple of DSDT questions

    Hi I'm a complete noob when it comes to DSDTs. I've got an Acer 6930g which I can get to 10.6.7 and run nice and stable. But obviously that's not enough - I want Lion! Now a very helpful chap called Marchrius (over at http://hackbookpro.altervista.org/en/ ) has managed to get Lion running with the wifi working and everything. The main turn off for me using mine with SL is I've always had to use a wifi dongle which is just a pain. I've got a Broadcom BCM94321 card apple branded so I know it's Airport capable. I've also installed a bluetooth module into my laptop. Whenever I try to install Lion and get errors relating to either bluetooth or airport, so I'm sure this can be worked around with a DSDT. My questions, simply, are these; 1. If I use the DSDT editor/patcher in Mac OSX to make a DSDT, it has no affect on the errors I receive, would making a DSDT in Linux change this since both wifi and bluetooth work using Ubuntu? 2. How the hell do I use the Linux version (or even the windows one, doesn't matter)? I just get a folder with files in it and don't know what I need to do to turn it into a running program. Any help would be appreciated and free e-beers gladly bought
