    Getting closer - An ATI graphics guide

    So you mean you can't play chess now? But I think you once said you have no problem with chess! that's a great idea. It would be also nice if you can write a tutorial on how to create an installer so other people can learn how to do that quickly and othe gurus can add to that tutorial and make it really advanced. A generic installer is also good for lazy people like me. this can be a open source project (OpenInstaller! )

    Getting closer - An ATI graphics guide

    captainsquash - First, thanks for the great job. I installed Katana on my Hacintosh. With ATI Mobility Radeon 9200, now i have AGP and resolution switching. Screen saver and other apps using OpenGL don't crash anymore. Screen saver is very slow though, like 1fps. Chess doesn't crash anymore, but it is not working correctly. it doesn't refresh the window and eats up my cpu. VLC player crashes. Is this the best condition you got on your pig lately? Actually, I feel about 20-30% deceleration in UI graphics performance after installing Katana. Is it normal? However, I think it is better to have those applications working even for the price of slower graphics. From one of your post i got the idea that I should have ATINDRV.kext deleted from my /system/library/extensions directory. Is that true? About the installer, it is very professional and better than most of the patches and hacks all around this forum. I have a suggestion though. You can add a rescue option to the boot options so that if the new setup doesn't work for someone and they aren't able to boot OS X to run the restore they can still restore their systems from backups to the last settings. keep up with the great job.

    Keyboard and mouse

    thank you very very much for the clue. my keyboard and mouse give timed out errors during the boot but they work. but if i press F8 and do a -v or -x they they dont work! I haven't tried a kextload/kextunload after it started to work. if it is working let it work! But I am still ciurious why! thanks

    Keyboard and mouse

    My problem solved! I installed the DVD for the 3rd or 4th time but a USB keyboard was connected during the installation this time. then i disconnected the usb keyboard and reboot. and everything was working! I mean PS/2 keyboard, synaptech touchpad and my USB mouse! I don't know how and why! maybe i installed this time on the old files without formating the drive- i can't remember (I couldn't sleep for 30 hours!). I rebooted again and again but keyboard was not working only once and it is working after reboot and shutdown. (at least 10 times) so what did you axactly do? what do you mean? and BTW, where can i edit my signature! Oops! but i can't find it. just give me a clue!
  5. what version it is? 10.4.8? could you please give a step by step explaination? thanks

    Keyboard and mouse

    I have the same problem. I installed patched JaS 10.4.8 SEE2/SSE3 AMD/Intel DVD image on my laptop (LG LM50) everything works fine except the built-in PS/2 keyboard. USB mouse and PS/2 touchpad worked out of the box. I managed to make the keyboard work 1-2 times but I don't know exactly how! never happened again. Once I kept typing on the keyboard when booting. the second time I did this after some playing with the kexts: sudo kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext/Contents/Plugins/ApplePS2Keyboard.kext sudo kextload /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext/Contents/Plugins/ApplePS2Keyboard.kext and it started to repeat like klllllllllllllllllll... and then I pressed a key and it worked but lost it on the next boot! people could solve that with similar laptops on the older versions (10.4.4-6) but nothing about 10.4.8. Also have problems with: Ethernet 3C920 (3C905C-TX compatible) Wireless Intel Pro Wireless LAN and screen saver etc. my config is Pentimium M 1.6GHz ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 thanks
