  1. VMware Tools is worth installing as it does provide some functions. Install from the darwin.iso in the VMware Fusion DMG. Working: Copy and paste host/guest Shared Folders (appears to only work when running as super user/root) Not working: Graphics driver VMwareIOFramebuffer.kext. In Fusion I think this allows resolution changes when the window is resized. Does not appear to load properly in Workstation, most likely due to the different way Fusion and Workstation interface with the host graphics system. The following lines appear in system.log: localhost kernel[0]: display: family specific matching fails localhost kernel[0]: IOFB: startSVGADev: Init: SVGA_CAP_TRACES failed

  3. Broadcom 5751 is not supported: http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?act=ST&f=11&t=9601 http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?act=ST&f=11&t=4987 I don't think the PC card slot is supported either so you'll have to get an Atheros or Broadcom wireless mini PCI.

    ASUS N4L-VM and the Intel T2600

    Yonah boards? There are plenty. Lots of discussion on XS and other sites, e.g http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=95449 12 boards listed there.
  5. Neither is supported. A search will bring up lots of info: http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?act=ST&f=11&t=4987 http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?act=ST&f=11&t=3275 ...etc I suggest you replace the Intel wireless card with a compatible Atheros or Broadcom card.

    Do not download new GMail Notifier

    This just highlights the fact that it is still on beta (and is free), with no service guarantees, so you shouldn't rely on it for urgent correspondence.
  7. Scrolling is being worked on by phb with his driver/FFScroll hack http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?showtopic=5419
  8. Thanks, will check it out
  9. Just buy the superior Atheros card. Even if an Intel driver finally materialises, it's not going to work as well as a properly developed driver from Apple themselves. http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?showtopic=8829

  11. Urby3, show some respect please. You haven't shown any sign of appreciation in any of your posts. phb has put a lot of time and effort into this - if you're not happy with the current driver then code your own hacks. He's doing it for free with his valuable time. Keep your comments to yourself, they are not welcome here. phb, your efforts are much appreciated, and I'm sure there are many others here who agree with me, please don't let it put you off.

    10.4.4 on Thinkpad T43

    Dump the Intel wireless and replace with an Atheros (preferred) or a Broadcom card instead.

    Indeed. I guess that Intel Speedstep is supported so that the cores run at a low clock speed by default and then ramp up if required (by adjusting the clock multiplier and voltage on-the-fly). Usually on Intel laptops the cores are always running at the lower speed when running on battery, which improves battery life.

    Yup, it's due to the excellent Atheros network card. These cards are far superior to the Broadcoms (and Intels, for that matter). I'm really glad that Apple have chosen to use these cards in the new MacBooks. Those people who are waiting for Intel wireless drivers are wasting their time, even if they are eventually made, the Intel cards are still inferior to the Atheros.
