Acer Aspire One 533

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hey guys, started round 2 of my attempt at hackintoshing a laptop with my newish AO533.

 

Now i got it setup with a more or less vanilla kernel (with the exception of having to install voodoops2 drivers). after some fiddling and getting annoyed with only an 800x600 resolution i found meklorts netbook installer as well as a modified boot file which i exchanged his for the alternate file. system now shows 1024x600 resolution, no QE/CI sadly. now i'm not exactly sure how i got this to work, but someone i got Quartz GL to initiate (and no i did not force it to activate). now my question is this if Quartz GL is activated shouldn't QE be as well, from what i read GL can't be activated without QE being activated as well.

 

now i know i've got a troublesome graphics card (intel GMA 3150 aka GMA 950 0xA011) so i know people are close to getting full support for it but this is just a lil weird. i'm not complaining as it's helped speed up the basic operations of the system. also after trying multiple differen't things it still shows that no kext driver is loaded, can't figure that one out for the life of me.

 

basically if anyone can explain to me why GL is on but QE isn't that would be great. and also help me figure out why it still shows that no kext driver is loaded

 

i'll post up screen shots and anything else anyone needs to help me out. (still trying to figure out how to take screen shots on OSx)

 

System Specs:

OSx 10.5.8

Acer AO533

Atom 455 cpu

Intel GMA 3150 gpu (a011

1GB ram

Broadcom wifi adapter (bcm4311)

 

graphics_profile.tiff

hardware_specs.tiff

 

would a few of the other components not be recognized such as PCI Devices saying no devices found possibly be part of the problem?

 

Update:

 

After playing around with a few things last night i think i'm really close to having QE/CI working using the x3100 kexts. reason i think this is, menu's are translucent again and when going into full screen video via youtube its barely choppy anymore, just slightly laggy. i think the reason its still a lil laggy is its not officially loading the kext for the driver. need some input from the guru's on how to proceed. again let me know what you need me to upload if you want to take a look at my system configuration and i will do it.

I am interested, may I ask what changes you have made to the X3100 drivers?

 

I (as would many others) love it to get the gma3150 working. I am will to help. I am not afraid of a hex editor nor of a disassembler.

 

Let me know how goes it?

 

Sorry about the lateness of this reply. Just recently got back into a netbook after giving mine away.

And yes my reply is also very late as I have one of these Acer Aspire one AO 533 as well with the Atom CPU. Is this anemic netbook a good candidate or is it just to troublesome to attempt for the size of processor? I have upgraded the ram to 2 gb and otherwise it is in good working order.
