  1. Not a bad idea, but I haven't had luck finding a PS/2 -> USB adapter that will work with my keyboard yet ;\
  2. Here's how I got my Logitech MX1000 (USB) mouse and my IBM Model M (PS/2) keyboard to work together, perfectly. For the longest time, I was using a USB->PS/2 adapter to connect my mouse to my hackintosh, because connecting it to the USB port while the Model M was attached would cause both devices to not work in OS X. As a result, it was impossible to configure the many buttons of the mouse -- every button would behave like a regular click. Tools like USB Overdrive and SteerMouse did not work, and the official Logitech control panel couldn't detect the mouse. Here's how I fixed it: a) Download and install the Logitech Control Center (v2.2.2 or later) from official site Confirm that it does not detect your mouse, which is connected to a PS/2 port c) In System Preferences/Accounts, set up automatic login d) Reboot and disconnect the keyboard before OS X boots. e) Wait for your desktop to load, play around with the mouse and check that it can be configured by LCC f) With the system on, connect PS/2 keyboard. Keyboard doesn't work, mouse clicks don't register. Soft reset computer. g) Enjoy fully functional.. everything! As a note, I'm running 10.4.8 JaS on a SSE2 processor. Motherboard is K8N Neo Platinum. In the BIOS, I set USB keyboard and USB mouse to 'Disabled'
  3. Please be careful. I'm using 10.4.8 JaS, and I decided to install using Pacifist. Because iWork claimed to require QuickTime 7.2, I decided to get that first, and install using Pacifist as well. After completing the installation, most apps stopped working (Terminal, System Preferences, etc.). They would open for a couple of seconds, then close with a crash. After a reboot, most of my menu items didn't load, and the Dock was crashing continuously, accompanied by erratic mouse motion and missed clicks. Stack trace revealed that the error was in CoreAudio (!). I sshed in and promptly replaced all the frameworks newly installed by QuickTime 7.2 with older ones that I had in backup. This fixed the applications, but didn't help the Dock crashes. Finally, opening Pages '08 for the first time repaired the Dock. A final word of caution for those installing iWork using Pacifist: if you are like me, and your Applications folder is not on your boot volume, and /Applications is a symbolic link, you will find that Pacifist will overwrite your link with a new Applications folder, and will put iWork in it.

    What is ppf1 and ppf2? and what is JAS?

    JaS is the moniker of the wonderful fellow that compiled that DVD image. PPF1 and PPF2 were patches that were added on to the release, afterwards. If you're downloading an image that says it's ppf1+ppf2, that means that both patches have been applied to your image.
  5. Hello! The maintainer of the builds took his site offline.. Would some kind soul post recent (or recentish) builds of MacFuse Tools and of NTFS-3G? NTFS-3G 1.516.dmg and MacFUSE Tools 0.3.0.dmg would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  6. I'm afraid to report that I have exactly the same situation.. Running JaS 10.4.8, with ATI x800 XT on AMD64 (SSE2). For graphic drivers, I'm using Callisto and kovergs patch. So, I guess having an ATI card is not enough

    Ugly Border Syndrome

    Thank you, this should be in an FAQ somewhere )
  8. Wonderful guide, worked wonders for me: My system: AMD Athlon 64 3200+ (SSE2) MSI K8N Neo (Nforce 3) ATI Radeon X800 XTPE (id: 0x4A501002) Dell 2005FPW The only adjustments that I had to make (through a lot of blood, tears, trial and error) were: a). Manually entering the EDID of the monitor was required for Callisto to work properly (causing a kernel panic otherwise) . Editing the plist in ATIRadeon9700.kext was quite enough for QE/CI to work. Hex editing the binary as per your guide made the system hang at the beginning, with half of the screen a kind of corrupted grey thing. c). AGPGart 2.2 was required to solve the unbearable slowness which occured immediately after enabling QE/CI
