  1. hello everyone i have installed mac os x leopard on a ibm thinkpad t41 2373 ive used kalyway_leo_10.5.1 ISO and choosed sse2 kernel, azalia out audio package and mbr bootloader it was working good except the wifi didn't work, no ci or qe, no hibernation and the booting up was very slow. but then i managed to get the wifi working by taking the ideneb v1.6 10.5.8 ISO disk and boot it up to the custom install bit i choosed from drivers the atheros driver and some other things. from that moment everything was a bit better except i could install new softwares because it was mac os x leopard 10.5.1 so i used ideneb combo upgrade kit to upgrade to 10.5.8 and i choosed the cameleon v2 bootloader and voodo 9.5 kernel. now my system specs are: IBM ThinkPad T41 2373 Specifications Part # 23737FU Key Specifications IBM ThinkPad T41 2373 Manufacturer IBM Manufacturer Part # 2373FU Processor Type Intel Pentium M 1.6 GHz Data Bus Speed 333 MHz Cache Memory Type L2 cache Installed Size 1 MB RAM Installed Size 512 MB Technology DDR SDRAM Memory Speed 333 MHz System Type Notebook Storage Hard Drive 40 GB, 5400 rpm Storage Controller Type IDE Optical Storage Type CD RW / DVD ROM combo, plug in module Read Speed 24x (CD) / 8x (DVD) Write Speed 24x Rewrite Speed 24x Display Type 14.1" TFT active matrix Graphics Processor / Vendor ATI MOBILITY RADEON X300 Video Memory 64 MB Max.

  2. Atheros AR5006 and 5007 Working.

    please help me i have a ibm thinkpad t41 (2373) and i installed mac os x leopard 10.5.1 (kalyway 10.5.1) and i used ideneb combo upgrade to upgrade it to 10.5.8 and i realised what ever i did my wireless wouldn't work my thinkpad has a atheros wireless card and i tried this from a different web post For the wireless to work, go to folder /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AirPortAtheros.kext/Contents/ and open the file Info.plist as super user (sudo vi Info.plist). Add the following text within <IONameMatch> in the key-section <Atheros Wireless LAN PCI></Atheros Wireless LAN PCI>: <string>pci168c,1014</string> Then save and close the file. Set the right permissions sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions and clean the cache sudo kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions Then, reboot (preferably with option “-v”). but it never worked so i hope your way works thank you for the file i will reply if it works
