After having messed with this for a day or so, I've become comfortable with a lot of the many different methods required to get a mostly working OS X installation. My travels and travails on this site have assisted me greatly, and I'm thankful for such abundant resources.

 

I am requesting a bit of assistance with getting some things up and running. specifically with my hardware. I have tried kexts given here, but they have not worked, likely because they are designed for Snow Leopard, rather than the version that I have installed currently. Here's the rundown on what I need help with:

 

Graphics: I have come to understand that the GMA4500 will NEVER, EVER support QE/CI, simply because of the architecture/the way it handles things... is that not right? As such, I don't really care about having that luxury -- all I really desire is the native resolution: 1366x768.

 

Installing the kexts provided in the link did not work, nor did adding the Graphics Mode key in com.apple.Boot.plist. I'm stumped here.

 

Audio: The kext I tried didn't work, likely for the reason already mentioned. The one provided by the installation disc wielded no results as well.

 

Wireless: The Dell Wireless 1397 card isn't being picked up either. Attempting to install IO80211.kext seems to do nothing.

 

USB: I've not taken the time to get information on this, as I've mainly been working to get the above working, but, uh, it doesn't work either.

 

After countless hours of hair-tugging, facepalming, and teeth gritting, I'm just about to pull my hair out. If someone would be so kind as to guide me in the right direction, that would be oh-so helpful.

 

Some System Specs (from CPU-Z):

Processor: Intel Pentium T4300 (dual-core)
Graphics: Intel GM45/GM47 rev. 07
RAM: 4GB DDR2
Wireless: Dell Wireless 1397

Any other information I can provide upon request.

I have your wifi fix here!

 

It even works on my laptop, and it's not Dell.

Do you have the drivers installed for you Graphics Card?

 

If not, try this package.

 

And yes, no one has developed a native QE/CI driver for that card, sorry.

 

What kext did you try for Audio?

 

 

And we'll see about USB.

Okay, I tried both packages. No gas, bro. :)

 

As for audio, I tried the VoodooHDA.kext file. From what I can tell, I see that there's a category for it in System Preferences, but clicking on it results in it spitting out an IO related error. What I think may have to happen is I'll have to remove all the kexts that I installed. It's either that, or simply reinstall OS X. :)

Really?!!?

 

I was pretty positive that those would work.

 

I've installed them in Kalyway, and they work fine, and they partly work in Snowy.

 

 

I don't think I ought to go down to Kalyway just to get these drivers to work. That's a bit too drastic. Hmm... I suppose there's something else that I can do. What that something, though, is not clear.

 

Perhaps a clean install will give me a better place to start. Idk
