to BigBeluga :

where did you get that kext ?: AppleACPIBattery.kext ?

 

i only have

AppleACPIBatteryManager.kext

AppleSmartBatteryManager.kext

 

I looked into the retail DVD and in the 10.6.3.v1.1.combo_update with pacifist and did not find anything.

 

I am under 10.6.0 (not updated because each time i have tried i have lost the QE and it is too much important).

every thing is working except battery metter (and ethernet, but i didn't dried it).

 

thanks

I don't have a battery meter either (to answer your question) but you say you got everything working except that, so you have sleep? Could you tell me how you got sleep to work?

 

This thread says that AppleACPIBattery.kext is located in your AppleACPIPlatform: http://myhpmini.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=...amp;view=unread

 

AppleACPIPlatform is located here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=181293

 

Hope this gives you new inspiration for the batterymeter :thumbsdown_anim:

Very strange things:

 

I deleted _27aeNatit from S/L/E (installed by snow leopard enabler). rebuild the mkext and restart.

at startup the system detected a new interface : it was the build-in bluetooth ! great !

i restarted and looked inside AppleACPIPlatform to find AppleACPIBattery (it was not there) and restarted.

The bluetooth was gone and the battery meter was working !!!

This is SOOOOO Strange !!!

 

Sleep still doesn't work .

 

1aquila1 : you should delete _27aeNatit.kext if it's not done already :) and cross your fingers

 

EDIT: OK I FOUND THE RULE :

1) when I restart battery meter doesn't work but build-in bluetooth works

2) ask system to go to sleep => it goes to sleep and wakeup immediatly

3) Bluetooth is gone and battery meter works !

4) ask system to go to sleep (again) => it goes to sleep and wakeup immediatly

5) now bluetooth AND battery meter work together !

STRANGE BEAVIOURS !

Hi guys,

 

first, thank you for all your work and information you posted here.

 

did you manage to get full screen resolution and qe/ci for 10.6.4? I need 10.6.4 because an application depends on this version.

 

Currently, I did the following:

1. Install SL 10.6.0, modified by current Netbootmaker

2. Updated to SL 10.6.4

3. Removed NVEnabler, updated mkext files with UpdateExtra

4. Set GraphicsEnabler to No in /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist

5. Copied dsdt.aml and smbios.plist to /Extra, removed the old 1201 aml

 

Can anybody help?

 

Big thanks in advance!

Hello again,

 

I googled around to find a solution and found this:

http://www.meklort.com/?p=262

 

I used the NetbookInstaller from this page (it seems to be 0.8.4 with some fixes for 10.6.4).

 

After that, I restarted the S12 and QE/CI is now working on 10.6.4 !

But I now have the problem that the netbook goes to sleep and awakes about every 5 seconds.

 

Do you have a suggestion how to solve this?

 

Thanks in advance

SliderSD

hello SliderSD,

the netbookinstaller has probably installed a new .kext that concern the sleep mode.

if you did a backup of your extra folder you can easily compare before/after modification.

sometimes the installler create an extra.backup folder (something like that)

look for differences ... then try to supress the kext you think to be the problem's source.

(look especialy for lidsleep, sleepenabler, osxrestart etc ...)

Hi HNO3,

 

thank you for your advice!

I will compare the extra folder from backup to the current directory.

 

Did you already manage to get QE/CI on 10.6.4 or newer?

 

Regards

hello and merry christmass

no ... each time i updated to 10.6.3v1.1 or 10.6.4 i lost QE/CI.

because graphics are too slow without QE/CI i stay with 10.6.0 which is very reactive and flowless.

i think there is something missing to get it work with 10.6.4 but i don't know what, sorry

Hi mohamad, if you read al the three pages you see that's all the answers on how to install osx on your lenovo s12 with ion graphics. If you don't have a nvidia ion chip search another tutorial. If you have ion, read the 3 pages. All the answers are in there as far as we know how to fix things. Hopefully someone with more knowledge then me will get everything to work under10.6.3 or higher and will post how he get it to work.

Hi folks,

 

I now managed to get 10.6.5 with WLAN and QE/CI enabled.

  1. I completely reinstalled 10.6.0 without Netbookinstaller or SLEnabler
  2. Installed Chameleon 2.0 RC5
  3. Updated to 10.6.5 (combo update)
  4. Copied TEAs patched kernel for 10.6.5 for Atom CPUs
  5. Moved dsdt.aml to /Extra
  6. Moved the following kexts to E/E (mostly from the contents of netbookinstaller and slenabler package)
    - AHCIPortInjector.kext
    - AirPortBrcm43xxEnabler.kext
    - AppleACPIBatteryManager.kext
    - AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext
    - AppleIntelGMA950.kext
    - AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext
    - ApplePS2Controller.kext
    - CPUIDOverride.kext
    - CPUIDSymbols.kext
    - ElliottForceLegacyRTC.kext
    - fakesmc.kext
    - IO80211Family.kext
    - IOATAFamily.kext
    - IONetworkingFamily.kext
    - IOSDHCIBlockDevice.kext
    - OSXRestart.kext
    - SMBIOSResolver.kext

 

What needs to be done:

- Audio

- Sleep/Wake/Lidclose

- Speedstep (i think it is not working yet)

- Battery Meter

 

Hope this is useful for you

 

Regards

Hi slidersd, thanks for your effort in getting this machine working perfectly.

How did you get wifi to work? did you flash or pintaped it? (if there's an easier solution we all would love to hear that)

 

and further, this attachement should fix your audio pretty nice (as good as perfect)VoodooHDA.kext.zip

I'm definetly gonna try this your way when I have some spare time.

 

good luck and keep us posted!

Hi 1aquila1,

 

thank you for your AppleHDA, moved it to Extras/Extensions and got it to work.

 

For wifi to work, I taped pin 20 of the wifi card. So no news on this side, sorry.

Hello,

 

To Mohamad : glab to see a new lenovo s12 fellow here :D

 

To SliderSD : To know if QE/CI is working properly go to your screensaver prefpane and look what possibilities you have: if you have 8 or something it seems to be activated ... if you have only 2 or 3 then you don't have QE activated

Personnally i never succeed to update with QE working ... hope you did it :D

 

To 1aquila1 : do you experienced scratchy noises with the voodoHDA.kext ? (when sound is working to listen something like a video for example) because my sound is very scratchy ... ?

 

I have sleep still not working ... i meen It goes to sleep and wakeup immediatly (probably due to wrong USB description)

Hey, I just wanted to tell, that I think, that I got QE/CI working with my ION, also sleep is working fine for me.

For sleep you have to dl the DSDT by humph here, A BIG THANKS TO HIM

http://s10lenovo.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=4626

 

QE/CI works with Chameleon RC5 and GraphicsEnabler=yes and PciRoot=1

Could some1 pls look, if QE/CI is enabled this way? qe_ci_.tiff

 

I'll try to get the sound now, Webcam in Photo Bootch works by the way also if you open up iChat and click on video preview from the video menu in the top, or at least that did it for me =)

 

Hope some1 will find a fix for the LAN... I always have to use the stupid Wii LAN connector xD

You seems to have QE activated (by the way ...when QE is not activated ...windows reduction (genius effect) is soooo slow)

 

Keyno: could you post your DSDT here please ... i don't know why but i never succeed to create an account on ideapad forum :( i never receive their activation email :( please post it here ;)

Hey HNO3, that's nice =) I also thought that it must be activated, 'cause transparency in menu bar etc. is activated, too :D

Of course I can post it here, but I hope, that humph has no problem with that, 'cause it's his DSDT at anyway...

I just copy his warning again:

 

WARNING for all:

Thought I'd resolved USB unplug issues, but now not sure it's working right with external 3G dongle & sleep.

Not a final/fully resolved DSDT. Use with caution!!

DSDTs.zip

 

At anyway I still get no sound and no PowerManagement... dunno why, I have VoodooBattery and system type = 2... I believe that the permissions are the problem...

 

And also I have a very straight problem here... After my S12 is booted, it immediately goes to sleep, just after the apple screen (or verbose screen) is over, the S12 goes to sleep. Then i have to turn it on and the Finder loads. Did somebody also experience that problem? Maybe it is caused by the DSDT... I didn't try it yet without.

Did you try verbose mode (enter in chameleon -v)? Maybe then you can see which thing will cause the problem normally :P

maybe you didn't wait long enough, I sometimes have a extreme long loading time (spinning circekl) after the first time I installed a new system. I had one that took a half our for the first time booting, but it booted normally after that. also if you see those waves thingy effect when you add something new on your dashboard (f12). you have that QE/Cl working.

Further do you have to type pciroot=1 everytime you boot or can you edit it in the .plist? (if that's the case, could someone copy paste that string here)

 

Yes I have crackling sound but not always. It absolutely helps if you never use the buttons above your keyboard to adjust vulume, only the fn+arrows, I also dicovered that it crackles more when there's more cpu usage.

 

Also since you use another dsdt, how's your cpu usage/battery life. With Istat nano you can check how much cpu you use ( and a lot more)

 

Nice work, I can't wait till the end of this week when I have time to try all this new input and have 10.6.6 and sleep working. Thanks.

Yea, QE/CI works for me.

For PciRoot = 1 you have to add in your boot.plist:

<string>PciRoot</string

<key>1</key>

So it will always load without typing it everytime =)

 

Well, the thing with the battery is amazing... I still do not get the battery meter to work... so I can't tell sth about the battery life, but I will try S10Enabler I think. With that I got Sound last time I believe...

But humph meant that the lifetime is about 5 hrs on s10lenovo.com

 

Yeah, I have iStat Pro, with that I can see some more things as the nano version. For me, the CPU seems to get rly hot, so I think Speedstop isn't working... fan is also running nearly all the time :/

So, I'll try s10enabler now :)

Hi SliderHD,

 

When you say in post #62

 

 

"I completely reinstalled 10.6.0 without Netbookinstaller or SLEnabler"

 

Could you elaborate on which distro you used?

 

Thanks

 

Ade.

We're not using distro's, only original apple snow leopard. It's called a retail install.

Distro's are history man, old-fashioned
