  1. I've got a Powerbook G4 currently setup as a HTPC using Front Row. I'm using an eHome USB IR receiver, Apple Remote and Mira to control Front Row but I'm wondering if Leopard supports the eHome without Mira? I find Mira buggy and full of unnecessary features - I'm just trying to control Front Row with the Apple Remote If I remove Mira, will the remote just work? If not, is it possible to play with the kexts (like the old keyboard/mouse deviceID trick) to get Leopard to use the receiver?
  2. Update: It kinda works.. The dock no longer responds to right clicks and the dashboard has some interesting graphical errors. Any ideas?
  3. Did you use that method to get your keyboard working?
  4. So it looks like 'Ramm' has been banned. Does anyone know how to remove the version checking from an installation package? I'd like to install the aluminum keyboard driver v1.2 on my 10.4.8 JaS hack but it requires 10.4.10.

  5. I'm trying to get the new Slim Keyboard working on my 10.4.8 Hackintosh without using any third party software. I just found this 1.2 Update for OS X http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/key...reupdate12.html Of course, it won't let me install the update since I don't have 10.4.10. Would one solution be to remove the version checking from the installation? and if so how would one go about doing that?
  6. Well I'd like to avoid the update from 10.4.8 to 10.4.10 but somehow get the keyboard working properly on 10.4.8.
  7. Update: got the keyboard and none of the 'special function' keys work with 10.4.8. Going to attempt to extract the driver from the 10.4.10 update and replace my 10.4.8 Keyboard driver. If anyone has any other ideas how to get the keyboard's extra functions working on a 10.4.8 hack, do tell.
  8. Any update on this? I'm also running 10.4.8 and would like to sport one of those new keyboards. If it is still a problem, someone on IRC mentioned the thought of using pacifist to extract just the keyboard driver from the update.
  9. I know iTunes updates haven't usually affected osx86er's but I was wondering if my system would be compatible. I'm running a moderately out of date JaS 10.4.8 (waiting for Leopard) install on my Dellintosh. Will the update from 7.1.1 to 7.4.1 give me problems? and if anyone is currently using an osx86 system with an iPhone; are you having any problems? Thanks!

  12. Would you pay?

    If you can't afford a real mac, apple doesn't want your business.
  13. Guess the date.

    I wouldn't consider key positions (which can be easily switched) and things like drivers/updates part of the experience because for the most part you don't have to deal with those things often. The experience is what you do with your computer and how you interact with it. I suppose if an osx86 machine was very incompatible you might have an altered experience but OS X is OS X. It doesn't know that it's on a PC any more that it knows (or might care) about the tough day you had at work. The color of my computer's case doesn't change my user experience. PS: I'll take a mechanical keyboard over ANY keyboard.

    You mean having white plastic on your desk instead of black plastic? Yeah, I can see how that could be a very different experience.
