  1. @Dr Hurt: Just tried V3Rushmore.zip and I get the same results I did before, can't move the pointer via the trackpad.
  2. @Dr Hurt: Tried the "Interrupt.zip" (debug) version and got same results (can't move pointer). grepped /var/log/system.log for "dispatching" but there weren't any messages. Is that the log you're referring to?
  3. @Dr Hurt: I get the same results I did before (and the same as @biscate and @3ddy just reported)... ie, can't move the pointer via the trackpad. In case it helps, dmesg shows the following device ID: ApplePS2ALPSGlidePoint::identify: Found ALPS Device with ID E7=0x73 0x03 0x50, EC=0x73 0x01 0x0d Also, in addition to the working version I previously reported (in post #142), the version sequelaw attached in post #150 works... although perhaps not quite as well. I can be more specific if you'd like more info.
  4. No change on my end. Pointer still can't be moved by trackpad. Keyboard still works. Is there any more information I can provide about my specific trackpad?
  5. @ Dr Hurt: I just tried the new v5 (Release) and got the same results as v4 - in my case that means I see the pointer near the upper left of the screen, but I can't move it with the trackpad. I retried with the Debug version and then tailed /var/log/system.log to see if there were any debug messages, but there were not. If I press on a keyboard key, I see messages like this: ApplePS2Keyboard: sending key 36=3c down ApplePS2Keyboard: sending key 36=3c up But nothing when I try to move the pointer with the trackpad. I don't have a mouse connected so didn't try that. Relevant i
  6. I've tried several other drivers, but hadn't found any that worked. While composing this I tried to track down the ones I had tried, just so I could let you know and ran across this one. It seems to work. I haven't done much testing at all... just enough to see that I can move the pointer, 2-finger scroll works and the touchpad prefs pane seems to work. That said, I'd be nice to use a version with a little more known about it... like the source is available. So, if you're willing to add support for my system, I'll do whatever I can to help. I'm not sure what you mean by "defaul
  7. I have a Dell Inspiron N5110 (Clover/Yosemite) and I've tried to use Release 4 of this kext (from post 132), but it doesn't work. Using the touchpad, I can't move the cursor or click... basically nothing works. I can use RehabMan's VoodooPS2Controller.kext (2015-10-29) and everything works EXCEPT 2-finger scrolling, which is really the main thing I want. Are there any special DSDT and/or config.plist patches that need to be done for this kext to work? Or something else? My System: System: Dell Inspiron N5110 (15R, Early 2011) CPU: Intel Core i5-2410M 2.30GHz Graphics: HD3000,
  8. There doesn't seem to be a bootpack for the Dell Inspiron 1525, is there another model that's the same/similar? Here's my hardware: Model: PP29L Motherboard: 0U990C BIOS: A17 Chipset: Intel GM965 Memory: 3GB (1 x 2GB, 1 x 1GB) DDR2 667MHz (PC2-5300) CPU (Socket P): Intel T5750 SLA4D 2.00GHz 667MHz Ethernet: Marvell Yukon 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Wireless: WLAN (Dell) 1395 802.11/b/g (BCM4312) Video: Intel GMA X3100 Display: WXGA TFT (Dell N876G) I was able to install Snow Leopard 10.6.3 (haven't trie
  9. Thanks for the info. A bit after posting my last question I found a article about support for 64-bit GMA 950 in 10.6.2... and also how it didn't work very well... basically just what you confirmed. Sort of took the wind out of the sails for this project. Probably not worth the cost/hassle for a T7600 cpu and/or 4GB memory if I can't use a 64-bit os. I did get a very cheap Atheros AR5B91 card on ebay for about $4... figured for that price I couldn't really lose.
  10. Thanks, but I'm not quite sure I follow. Are you saying if I get a T7600 CPU (in order to run 64-bit SL), I may have a problem with the integrated (Intel GMA 950) graphics? Is it not able to run in 64-bit mode? If the graphics only runs in 32-bit mode is that still an option? ie, the os is in 64-bit mode, but the graphics is still running in 32-bit mode? Is the same true for the ATI Radeon X1400?
  11. I apologize in advance for the length of this post... I suspect that may immediately turn off some people. Forgive me, but I tried to include all the relevant info I could. I have an Inspiron E1505 (aka 6400) running SL (10.6.8) and I'm investigating various hardware upgrades. I probably won't do ALL of these, but I'd like to know if there are any OS X compatibility issues with any of the proposed hardware upgrades before I start spending money. I'd also appreciate any "performance" related responses, ie "not worth it" or "definitely worth it" or hardware compatibility issues, ie "yo
  12. So I finally had a chance to try a myHack+EDP installation. No luck... didn't help with the display and it's actually worse... First. I created a separate partition on my hard drive so I could keep my current (mostly working) copy and ran the myHack+EDP installation on this extra partition. After building the myHack USB and booting from it, I get a blank/black screen. I tried booting with both ""PciRoot=1" and "GraphicsEnabler=No", but neither made any difference. The only way I was able to see the initial OS X install screen (language selection) was to remove the GMA and Fram
  13. No, the E1505 is the same as the 6400, not the 9400. I haven't ruled out reinstalling, but was hoping to try fixing just the graphics before resorting to that. Part of my goal with this project is to gain a better understanding of OS X internals... specifically as it relates to Hackintosh. I have many years experience with a variety of unix systems and some more recent with os x, but very little in the world of hackintosh. Can I pull the gma950 related kexts from one of the EDP bootpacks? Or is it likely the fix would require more then just the specific gma950 kext(s)? Based on
  14. I have an Inspiron E1505 running Snow Leopard 10.6.8 that was originally installed via iFail_S3_v2. Most things seem to work fine (I haven't used it enough yet to be sure)... but I seem to be spinning my wheels trying to get the graphics to work. Right now I'm stuck with a basic display at 1024x768. I'd really like to get 1280x800 and I assume some kind of graphics acceleration needed for videos (VLC complains about GL support). In order to get the display to work at all I had to move the kext's related to the GMA950 under /System/Library/Extensions, specifically: AppleIntelGMA950.kext
