I have installed yosimite on e6230 i5 3340m hd4000

Everything working fine except touchpad not working at all or being recognised by os x.

I have tried updating the voodoops2controller with ones from the following post (first and newest versions)

 

https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/9070-a-new-voodoops2controller-compatible-for-alps-on-sierrael-capitan-1011410115/

 

when i do neither the keyboard or trackpad work.

reverting to original (from niresh yosimite dmg) get keyboard back but still no trackpad

 

any help greatly appreciated...i fee so close to having a working system...frustrating

 

thanks :)

Considering the regularity at which kextcache command ends up with errors when rebuilding cache, I'm recommending NOT to use those tools any more but to revert to good old manual line commands:
 
For kexts placed in /L/E:

sudo chmod -Rf 755 /L*/E*
sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /L*/E*
sudo touch -f /L*/E*
sudo kextcache -Boot -U /

For kexts placed in /S/L/E:

sudo chmod -Rf 755 /S*/L*/E*
sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /S*/L*/E*
sudo touch -f /S*/L*/E*
sudo kextcache -Boot -U /

If an error 77 is returned, repeat the last 2 x commands (touch + kextcache) or replace the kextcache command by:

sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel

`
Caution: placing the PS2 controller in /E/E will probably not get it loaded, unlike placing it in /L/E or /S/L/E. myHack uses /E/E as a source location from where it retrieves kexts that are subsequently upped to version 999 and then copied as PlugIns to a kexts called myHack.kext placed in /S/L/E.

thanks, but...

 

if I rebuild cache via the terminal as sujested above it says multiple times that no dependancies found and prelink failed.

Same if I replace last line with sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel.

 

if I do it via kext wizard, no errors are reported but on reboot no keyboard or trackpad....

 

thanks

I only have the one PS2 controller kext in S/L/E (new voodooPS2Controller.kext)

 

if i search the folder for PS2 i get the following:

 

VoodooPS2Controller.kext (new)

VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext (previous)

VoodooPS2Mouse.kext (previous)

VoodooPS2Trackpad.kext (previous)

 

could a previous one be installed somewhere else which is causing an issue?

 

Thanks
