Perfectly Working - 10.6 on ACER ASPIRE ONE A150

Recommended Posts

Finally, when running the kextcache commands, I got this error:

kextcache: ?4\033??\a: couldn't get volume UUID

Is this anything to worry about?

 

I think I'm 99% there, in fact I've made a shellscript file to automatically format and install everything on the EFI partition, saves a lot of time when reinstalling snow. :)

 

Try to reinstall everything that happened to me the second time i tried to install... ( the first SL worked until i updated it to 10.6.1 :( )

What problems are you getting? Kernel panics? The 10.6.1 seemed to work fine for me....

I'm already on SL, i installed it in my USB HD. I'll try the gma950 fix... About the mic... Did you get it working? I tried this install first in my USB HD because i don't want ro mess with my fully functional Leopard install

 

 

Edit:

Updated my SL install to 10.6.1 it broke my install :/ will try to fix permitions and caches

I haven't tried the internal mic, but it didn't work with the normal voodooHDA kext. I think there is an updated version which may work however...

 

Also, the GMA950 fix is pretty easy, I use a modified Boot.plst and I have some shellscript which patches the kext's for me.

 

I'm still getting random Kernel panics, does anyone know how I can find whats causing them?

I think I've finally fixed my Kernel panics!

 

I added cpus=1 to my Boot.plist and this seams to have fixed things...

 

Anyone else running with cpus=1? I guess this maybe because I'm on a different DSDT...

I havent used boot flags - any of them...iStat Menus and Activity Monitor show both threads...

 

Try deleting the AppleIntelCpuPowerManagement kext...

Thanks, I've deleted AppleIntelCpuPowerManagement.kext from my SL partition, and rebuilt extensions.mkext on both my EFI partition and on my SL partition. It seems if I build the mkext's under single user mode, I do not get the UUID error I reported earlier...

 

I'm not 100% sure if this has worked howver, I have yet to get a kernel panic, but Safari seems to be crashing a lot, especially when playing youtube vids! Could my CPU be overheating maybe?

 

Is it worth getting rid of AppleIntelCpuPowerManagementClient.kext also or will this make no difference?

Well, I tried to boot up today it KP's on boot. Something about AppleACPIplatform not working properly, I think deleting AppleIntelCpuPowerManagement may have caused this. I couldn't even boot into single user mode to restore AppleIntelCpuPowerManagement, so I'm starting again from scratch and re-installing SL.

http://aspire1.ru/forum/9-3332-1 original guide here

 

I'm glad my instructions turned out to be useful even though less requested since chameleon rc3 and pc-efi 10.3 has come out. However it's considered a good tone providing the link to the original post.

DSDT and SSDT dumps were taken from gentoo linux and RTC HPET GPE VGA PSS PCT CST LIDS, adding DTGP method and the "Creating a named object in a While loop" error were manually patched by me. The attachment contains the latest version.

Hi, thanks for posting your patched DSDT, may I ask what BIOS version you are running? I'm running v3114 and I'm getting kernel panics with my own patched DSDT, and this is the first time I've tried it so hame probably done something wrong... :)

 

The only change I applied was removing 2 lines from the RTC section... Can I ask what the DTGP method does?

Here is the link to what GMX is talking about DTGP...

 

Finally someone found the original link...I checked it, but seems like there is no more activity there...thanks GMX.

Try removing voodooPowerMini.kext and rebuilding the caches and see if that improves the systems stability

Great guide! Would this also work for an Acer Aspire One 110? Think the only difference is that the 110 has a SSD and not a hard drive?

 

i can confirm that the installation works on the A110. I even use the same DSDT as provided. I have however replaced the original SSD with a Toshiba 60G 1.8" hdd and the original wifi card with a compatible Broadcom card. in my opinion, the original SSD is just too slow to run SL

 

Followed this guide and everything works, well not exactly everything, sleep still a problem but that's minor. I have also upgraded to 10.6.1 without incident

Thanks, it turned out to be voodoopower that was causing the problems, I'm not using a different version and no more KP's!

 

Now if only sleep would work... Maybe with some hardcore DSDT editing?

I've been playing with this today on an Aspire One A150, originally running iAtkos 10.5.7

 

Pretty much everything worked, upgrades to 10.6.1 and net and sound still work as in 10.5.7, but I'm stuck on the GMA950 kexts (no go in 10.6 or 10.6.1 yet).

 

A couple of times I've been stuck and not able to get in even with single user mode as someone mentioned above. At those times, I boot from the iAtkos DVD, mount my HD and clear the kexts and kextcache and I can get back in...

 

Not sure what I'm doing wrong not to be able to get the GMA950 drivers happening, possibly my Chameleon is too old?

 

Anyone have any luck using kexthelper or osx86tools to install the GMA950 kexts on this thread?

 

well, I seem to have killed it for good this time :P

 

My Chameleon is green and says "v2.0-RC1 r" so I'm guessing it's a bit old...

 

Will do a reinstall of iAtkos i7 10.5.7 and try again...

I actually work for Geek Attack! We have multiple Acer Aspire One's A110 and A150 running 10.6.1 and one on 10.6.2 with everything working besides (sigh) Sleep. I think that I will never see it go to sleep... We are working on a fix but so far it is like 2% progress...

 

So if you need any help look at my posts or go in the Market section...

This is what i did, i did a vanilla install, using chameleon rc2 bootloader, booted up, installed 10.6.1... then installed netbook installer, (Caution: install SL first if you are dual booting, it is known to mess up boot loader)

Another question which may have been discussed already. On first boot after install of snow leopard my webcam could be used with photo booth and ichat. Now after a couple of reboots it is not seen by photo booth just a black screen but ichat shows it. I read something about resolution with the generic webcam driver or something. But why did it work the first time and not after the fact?

 

It shows up under usb devices in profiler

OK, I had the same issue with the resolution only being 800x600. I followed the lead mentioned in this thread, and copied the snowGMA files into /S/L/E folder, then tried to perform the patching steps with the kextcache command. When I did so, it refused to incorporate the two .kext files, failing with the error:

 

AppleIntelGMA950.kext is not authentic; omitting from mkext.

 

And a similar error for the other one. How can I get it to accept them? I tried the -f option, which should force the issue, but it still failed with the same error.

 

Is there something I'm missing, or is there a better way to fix the resolution problem?

 

TIA,

 

Trog

 

Well... I did get it going and found out why I was unable to before...

 

I needed to remote the original kexts out of /S/L/E... I am not sure if this is a "Boot Think" loader issue or this is how it must be done as I am not used to having duplicate kexts in the first place.

 

Oh well... I will dig further, thanks for the files.

is there any updates regarding the Atheros card? I'm begining to consider that DW1390... well, I installed Snow Leopard using mechdrews tutorial about installing retail from another mac :D, added voodoohda and everything was working! Trackpad working really well, 2 finger click and scroll like a real mac ;), intel GMA was already installed on the first boot! just missing Mic, Wireless, and the Card Readers... (obviously sleep)

 

Also, I'm triple booting SL, Windows 7 and Jolicloud using Chameleon RC3

I mounted the .dmg file and tried to run the installer but it says to burn the image. Is there any way to make it work without burning the image??

1) When running on battery the CPU clock goes to half. (Confirmed with XBench...)

Seems power-managment thinks this is a good idea.... It goes back to full speed

when you plug in the external power supply.

 

any solutions?

it's really SLOW when I use it without external power supply

can't even watch youtube smoothly

Hello everyone, it might seem a stupid question but I want to know something. As I know, Snow Leopard costs money. How am I supposed to actually update from 10.5.8 to 10.6?

Does anyone know if these things are working?

 

EXTERNAL MONITOR (VGA)

EXTERNAL SOUND(LINE -IN)

ETHERNET

 

These are the only things I need - can someone confirm?

 

Thanks

I don't know if it works with Snow but you might check out the drivers for the sound that the voodoo team put out. It got my mic and everything working on three different machines with the Intel HDA audio... Including my Acer Aspire One.

    • Sorry! I forgot, if you use SSDT V3 you have to remove the _DSM method from DSB1
    • Many thanks! Yeah I'll try again! Hopefully you can think of something later  
    • I check when I get home. I can tell you in advance that you have to use the SSDT V3 (with your ACPI path) if you have disconnected the cable, and your devices must be connected and turned on before boot. It's all still a work in progress
    • I expected it to not work, especially after so many attempts at different methods. This one sounded the least likely to work, and as soon as I booted, my Apollo turned on its HOST light and it's been working since!   I added my clover arbitrary device as 32:00.00 (my BR1A) and that's it. I only pulled the cable from the Mobo but not the card... not sure if that matters.
    • As the prices for Radeon cards have been dropping during the last weeks I finally decided to buy a Sapphire Radeon Nitro+ RX570 8GB and received the card this afternoon. With 10.13.4 Apple added a number of new framebuffer personalities to the AMD9500Controller.kext and as the framebuffer personality "Orinoco" matches the connector layout of my card (DP, DP, HDMI, HDMI, DVI) I decided to give it a try and got an instantly working system. No framebuffer patch is needed anymore. See for yourself:     Mieze
