Dell Inspiron 640M

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a dell inspiron 640M. I have no sound or internet working after the OSx86 install. I have been referring to http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph..._E1505_.2F_6400 for support, but internet and audio are not working.


I used AppleHDA patcher to patch what i believe to be Sigmatel 9200 audio with the right codec, but, it said, "Unsupported Sigmatel chipset!"


To fix internet, I tried replacing the /system/Library/IONetworkingFamily.kext with the one from OS X 10.4.6, but, to my dismay, there is no such file in /system/Library/.


Help me!

I used the Sigmatel KEXT that came with the Jas 10.4.8 SSE2 / SSE3 AMD Intel ppf 1 and ppf2 ISO image. You can find that image on one of the torrent search sites. You can also find the updated KEXT via the wiki http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page


Did you make sure to repair file permissions with Disk Utility after you updated the KEXT? After that did you also made sure to enter the following commands in terminal?


sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache

sudo kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions
