Asus M3N laptop Kalyway 10.5.2 MacOS x86 installation

I have successfully installed Kalyway 10.5.2 MacOS x86 on my laptop (specs below).


I am new in the Mac world, and I was interested to learn a bit. So... After the installation I have encountered some issues, and I have been searching around for solutions. So far I stumbled upon some, but I really don't know if they are applicable, and that's where I needed some expert comment:

  1. Display: My 1400x1050x32 display is working at 1024x768, and that's the only option available at display settings... How (if possible) can I add my optimal resolution to the selection options? I read about the Callisto drivers (http://omni.110mb.com/callisto/), is this what I am looking for or is there a easier option (I also read something about changing a plist file...)

    1. Changed to 1280x1024 using this key (http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=5513):
      <key>Graphics Mode</key>
    2. Apparently there are no drivers for this chipset (http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...=12207&st=0)... So problem not solved. And Callisto is for ATI cards only...?

[*]USB devices: This one is driving me nuts... If I connect a pen drive it shows in the System Profiler, under USB, but the drive doesn't appear anywhere! If I connect my iPhone, the pen drive disappears from System Profiler and the iPhone appears instead. Same again, Itunes does not find the device!

  1. Solved by reading this guide: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...amp;mode=linear

[*]Wireless support: Intel 2100b device drivers are in the making, by what I have read. I didn't fully understand if there was any beta or not...

  1. Will check., but apparently no support: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...mp;#entry878905

There are probably more issues with my installation, but it is great to see it running!






ps: On the up-n-up... My Bluetooth dongle, that takes about 2 hours to install in Windows and is a pain to configure works instantly in Leopard! Cool! Not very useful, but cool!
