DELL Vostro 200 (Slim) w/ iAtkos 1.0i

Currently posting using a DELL Vostro 200 (Slim) with iAtkos 1.0i running Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.1.

 

Basic Specs:

1.6 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

1 GB 667 MHz RAM

 

Installing iAtkos was simple however I neglected to install with any of the options available via the installer other than just the iAtkos patched Mac OS X 10.5.1.

 

After installing I was unable to change my screen resolution, hear sound, or connect to my network (internet). I tried re-running the installer but selecting certain drivers at a time such as the network driver, graphics and sound drivers however nothing seems to actually be affecting the system.

 

I had several network cards laying around and decided to pop one into the machine hoping that it would work with a non-integrated card. Luckily for me it Did! I now have a working network card and connection however Leopard picks up the card and lists it as an "Airport" service rather than an "Ethernet Adapter". It doesn't really matter because at least its working.

 

Now, to anyone else that owns a Vostro that is willing to tinker with it without really relying on it I recommend they give this a try if they want to know what Leopard is like. I already own a powerbook g4 and an iMac (with Leopard) so I gave this a try to see how it would run on a pc that I had.

 

Here are a couple of things I've noticed from using iAtkos' Leopard:

-Shutting down doesn't really shutdown. It performs a restart.

-If you leave your computer alone for a while it doesn't function properly when you get back. The mouse moves but things don't respond. You have to restart if you leave your computer idle for a bit.

-The CD still needs to be in the drive in order to boot Leopard. I tried to follow the instructions and scripts to make the system auto boot without the cd but they don't seem to work for me.

-Flash video from sites like youtube.com stop playing after 2 seconds. Regular flash objects from other pages seem to work properly but video for some reason stops right on 2 seconds every time. You can drag the position slider and the buffer seems to work. When you drag the slider the video will play again for another 2 seconds and stop.

 

Here are my requests to anyone that could help me. I'd really appreciate it:

-How can I get the graphics card working?

-How can I get my sound card working?

 

Thanks to everyone involved in the building of iAtkos, this forum, and anyone that can help me.
