Recommended Posts

Ok, I have an Dell Inspiron 1100 with the Intel 845GM and i followed this guide.


I pretty sure it should support it because when I opened to edit the fresh Kext it already have my Device ID in.


But now it just wont load the kext.


Can someone help me?


Oh, Heres some info on it.



Type: Display

Bus: Built-In

VRAM (Total): 64 MB of shared system memory

Vendor: Intel (0x8086)

Device ID: 0x2562

Revision ID: 0x0003

Kernel Extension Info: No Kext Loaded



Resolution: 1024 x 768

Depth: 32-bit Color

Core Image: Not Supported

Main Display: Yes

Mirror: Off

Online: Yes

Quartz Extreme: Not Supported


I messed around some more.


c-68-41-164-5:/System/Library/Extensions root# kextload -t AppleIntel830.kext

kextload: extension AppleIntel830.kext appears to be valid

14Intel830Memory is not compatible with its superclass, 8OSObject superclass changed?

kextload: a link/load error occured for kernel extension AppleIntel830.kext

load failed for extension AppleIntel830.kext

(run kextload with -t for diagnostic output)

yeah... when u edited kext, u messed up permissions.

u can either use install DVD to correct permissions or do it manually



note: you may have to logon as root (using 'login root' w/o quotes)

sudo kextunload '/library/system/extensions/_kext-name_.kext'
sudo chown root:wheel '/library/system/extensions/_kext-name_.kext'
sudo chmod 755 '/library/system/extensions/_kext-name_.kext'
sudo chown root:wheel '/library/system/extensions/_kext-name_.kext/contents'
sudo chmod 755 '/library/system/extensions/_kext-name_.kext/contents'

then open up the kext and right click on the contents folder and click Get Info. Then, under the access rights thing at the bottom, click apply to contents... finally

sudo kextload '/library/system/extensions/_kext-name_.kext'

and ur good!
