10.5.6 Updated successfully but no keyboard

Recommended Posts

I updated from iDeneb 10.5.5 to 10.5.6 in 4 steps.

 

- Installing Netkas PCEfiv9 and Chameleon 1.0.12

- Using DSDT patcher

- Using PM Disabler

- Installing 10.5.6 Update

 

After that, the computer was restarted twice to be operational.

Everythings seems to be fine, except for the keyboard, it doesn't work and the "About Mac" info, it only shows variables names not the real information. Mouse is ok, but cannot use the keyboard. Any ideas? It is a PS2 keyboard.

 

My hardware specifications are:

 

Q6600 Quad Core

Abit IP35 Motherboard

2 GB DDR2 800 GSkill

XFX Geforce GT8600

Try these, they were uploaded somewhere in this forum but I don't know exactly where so I'm uploading again.

Install the ps2controller on extensions folder and the other one inside AppleACPIPlatform.kext/Contents/Plugins, then repair permissions and delete extensions.mkext.

OK, solved.

 

Using mac_drive software in a Windows Vista partition I put the kexts given by eMatoS (ApplePS2kexts_10.5.6.ready.zip) into the Extensions folder in the Leopard volume and that's all.

 

Thanks!

At the first boot after replacing kext in the zip it works, but if i reboot it doesn't work again.

 

Why? :(

Try this with the content in the zip file:

 

Copy AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext in to \System\Library\Extensions\AppleACPIPlatform.kext\Contents\PlugIns

and also in \System\Library\Extensions

 

Finally copy (or install using osx86tool o kexthelper) ApplePS2Controller.kext in \System\Library\Extensions

Also solved my 10.5.6 PS2 issues.

 

For reference purposes I have both a PS2 mouse and a PS2 keyboard and running 10.5.6 vanilla using munky's method (http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=127330) on a hp m9300t. Just dropped the kexts in the EFI partition, updated permissions and cache, rebooted and voila....

 

Much appreciated eMatoS.

From iDeneb website:

iDeneb is a Mac OSX Leopard relase modified by Layne and insanelymac Team, to run on non-Apple computers. This universal relase can run both on Intel and AMD based machines. The current version, iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5, has EFI support, but it can't boot on old macines due the less of Non-EFI boot. This drawback has been worked out with Chameleon bootloader, that can install also on SSE2 computers.

 

Why did you need to install PCEfi and Chameleon again if iDeneb has EFI support and Chameleon? Sorry but I am puzzled.... Are the DSDT Patcher and PM Disabler straightforward (never used them before) - I have some mobo as you

Hi there!

 

I've finally managed to properly install keyboard and "mouse pad" drivers on my laptop.

 

Because this was really painfull for a newbie like me, I'll write down which procedure was successfull for me.

 

First i've downloaded the exts from this thread and booted machine into Windows.

I've copied the files as described (into /System/Library/Extensions and into /S/L/E/ApplePXYCYXCYXCYXC)

You must have an MacDrive program installed If you wana copy files into mac drive/partition...

 

Then - this was a big "founding for me" - BOOT machine with MacOSX Instalation DVD, and run Terminal from Utilities.

 

Then i've run this code from terminal:

cd "/Volumes/(name-of-OSX-partition)"   <--- use quotes if name has spaces
									   - but don't use parentheses
diskutil repairPermissions ./
cd System/Library
rm -rf Extensions.mkext Extensions.kextcache
cd Extensions
find ApplePS2Controller.kext -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
find ApplePS2Controller.kext -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

find AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
find AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

chown -R root:wheel ApplePS2Controller.kext
chown -R root:wheel AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext


shutdown -r now <- this restarts your machine
