Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Si 1848

I'm very new to the scene and I am too lazy to search the forum...

Now, here's my question:


Does Kalyway 10.5.1 work on my Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Si 1848 notebook?

If something won't run out of the box, what do I need to get it working?


The hardware specs:

- Intel Core2 Duo T5500

- 2 GB DDR2 RAM (667 MHz)

- Intel 945PM chipset

- ATi Mobility Radeon X1300 with 256 MB HyperMemory

- 80 GB SATA HD (on Intel chipset)

- Optiarc AD-7540A DVD writer

- Intel PRO/Wireless 3945abg

- Intel HD audio (Realtek ALC861)

- Realtek RTL8111/8168B gigabit ethernet


PS: And what's about the vanilla kernel???

I installed Kalyway 10.5.2 and here's my system:

- CPU: properly recognized

- Graphics: NATIT recognizes it

- SATA and IDE working

- no WLAN at the moment

- sound is working, but no support for headphones/external speakers

- LAN: don't know... I will test it when I can use Leopard


When I boot I see a screen full of black and white lines, then the screen goes black and I hear music and the VoiceOver tutorial. I modified com.apple.Boot.plist to support my screen resolution (1280x800x32) and added the PCIID to the ATIRadeonX1000Series.kext/Info.plist. At the moment Leopard isn't usable on my notebook. Please help me.

OK, here's some more news: When I plug an external monitor I see

- grey then blue and then black on the externel monitor

- the screen full of lines then blue and then black on the internal LCD

Grey / lines / blue screen are only flashing and the black one stays whyle my system freezes. What to do now???

Here's a listing what I did to get graphics working:

- start in single user mode (type -s at boot selection)

- mount -uw /

- ./movevideodrivers (YES, do what you want...)

- nano /Backup_Video_Drivers/AtiRadeon_Drivers/ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/Info.plist and add PCIID (0x714A1002)

- cp -rf /Backup_Video_Drivers/AtiRadeon_Drivers/ATIRadeonX1000* /System/Library/Extensions/

- reboot


Now I have 1024x768x32 on my 1280x800x32 widescreen. The "Graphics Mode"-Setting in com.apple.Boot.plist isn't working for some reason. Is there any way to fix it?


EDIT: Now I've got mouse problems. The pointer generates artifacts and hides everytime I click around.
