  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 info from dmesg: ApplePS2Controller::start entered...

For the "Debug" I did. I have not installed VoodooPS2Daemon, org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.Daemon.plist, synapticsconfigload, org.voodoo.driver.synapticsconfigload.plist or VoodooPS2synapticsPane.prefPane. My system does not (and never did) have AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext or ApplePS2Controller.kext.
  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 "default profile". If you can explain that a bit, I can try some tests. PS. Here's a couple of the others I tried that do NOT work: rehabman 2015-1029 (works, but not 2-finger scroll) bpedman v7 (doens't work - can't even move the pointer) There were a few others that behaved the same as the bpedman version and appeared to be based on one of the bpedman versions. I'll be happy to provide links to the specific posts where I found them if you like.
  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?

  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 tried to update to 10.6.8) without using a bootpack, but lots of stuff doesn't work: video is 1024x768, no kext loaded ethernet doesn't work wireless doesn't work trackpad works, but there's no preference pane no sound PS. As a side note, it looks like the bookpacks for the Inspiron 6400/E1505 have been removed. I've been using an E1505 that was installed with the 6400 bootpack and it works fine, why was it removed? In fact, now that I look closer, all the Snow Leopard bootpacks have been removed. Is this a permanent change or just temporary?
  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 "you can't put that CPU in an E1505"... unless of course those go outside the scope of this forum. My goal with these upgrades is obviously to increase performance, but also just to get some experience swapping out various bits of hardware and making them work with SL. So... borderline "performance" improvements may be worthwhile from a "just for the experience" point of view... depending on the upgrade cost that is. My current configuration (as best I've be able to determine) is: Model: Dell Inspiron E1505 System: MM061 (not exactly sure what this is) BIOS: A17 Chipset: Intel 945GM (FSB: 533MHz/677MHz) Motherboard: MD666 CPU: Intel T2050 (1.6GHz/2M/533MHz) Memory: 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800MHz (PC2-6400) SDRAM SO-DIMM 200 pin non-ECC Video: Intel GMA 950 (integrated) Display: WXGA Wireless: WLAN (Dell) 3900 802.11/b/g Hard Drive: 120GB Seagate Momentus 7200.2 (ST9120823AS) NOTE: I'm not exactly sure what the "MM061" is referring to. It's displayed on the boot screen just above the BIOS revision and I've seen it in relation to the BIOS itself (not the BIOS revision) and the model number and maybe a few other things. I suppose the model number makes the most sense. My optimal configuration (again, best I can figure) would be: ... Motherboard: YD612 (required for video upgrade - includes PCIe slot) CPU: Intel T7600 (2.3GHz/4M/667MHz) Memory: 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 667MHz (PC2-5300) SDRAM SO-DIMM 200 pin non-ECC Video: ATI Radeon X1400 Display: WSXGA+ Wireless: Atheros AR5B91 802.11/b/g/n Hard Drive: some SSD 80-120GB I think my rough order/importance of the upgrades would be: wireless (cheap network performance increase) CPU (faster and 64-bit) memory (seems like it should help) motherboard/video (better video processing) display (increased resolution) SSD hard-drive Wireless - Based on one of the threads in the R&D forum it looks like the Atheros AR5BXB112 and Dell DW1505 would also work OOTB with SL. I listed the Atheros AR5B91 because I assumed it would have the same/similar 802.11n performance but wouldn't cost as much (I haven't priced any of them yet). If that's an invalid assumption, please let me know. For reference, my current wireless router is a "D-Link 655 Xtreme N Gigabit" and a "Hawking 300N Ranger Extender (HWREN1)" which helps on one side of the house. I don't plan to replace either of those any time soon, so whichever wireless card works best from a compatibility/price/performance point of view is probably how I'd like to go. CPU - Apart from the performance increase I assume I'd see by going from a T2050 to a T7600, I'm hoping I'd be able to run 64-bit SL. I've run into some software packages that only provide 64-bit versions, so I was hoping the T7600 would solve that issue. If there's some reason I won't be able to run 64-bit SL with the T7600 please let me know. Memory - I'm assuming there's no point in going to PC2-6400 (800MHz) memory since the FSB for the Intel 945GM only supports up to 667MHz. Also, I'm assuming with the T7600 cpu @ 667MHz, it would be optimal to have the memory match that? Also, the E1505/6400 doesn't "officially" support 4G of memory, but I've seen several references to people saying it works although you may only be able to see 3.2G. I'm not sure if the 3.2G limit is hard or depends on the chipset and/or CPU and/or OS being used. Most of the discussions I saw related to Windows. If anyone can clarify what I should expect with the Intel GMA 945 chipset and T7600 (64-bit) CPU and SL, I'd appreciate it. Video Card - From what I understand, in order to upgrade the video, I would need to replace the motherboard with one that includes a PCIe slot (YD612). Assuming I did that, I have 3 options: the ATI x1300, the ATI x1400 or the NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300. From what I've read, the ATI x1400 is better then the NVIDIA even though the NVIDIA was originally a more expensive add-on. Hard Drive - The SSD drive may be one of the better upgrades from a performance point of view, but from an "experience" and cost point of view it's pretty low (ie, easy to do and costs a lot). I haven't really looked that much at SSD drives, so I may find I can get one cheaper then I thought. As mentioned at the top... my primary goal in posting this on the OSXLatitude site is to verify OS X compatibility. But I'd appreciate corrections to any assumptions I've made about hardware compatibility and/or performance expectations. Thanks for any help.
  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 Framebuffer kexts (/System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntel[GI]*) from the installation USB. After doing that, I can go through the normal OS X installation. Unfortunately, after initial boot from the hard drive, I run into the same problem... blank/black screen shortly after booting. Again, the only way I found to continue was to boot via my other partitionl and remove the AppleIntel[GI]* kexts from the newly installed filesystem. Then I was able to boot and run through the OS X initial user setup. After getting to the desktop, I downloaded InstallEDP, ran the Config section and selected Dell Inspiron 6400. Everything appeared to be ok, so I rebooted. I get a kernel panic on first boot. Appears to be related to fakesmc: So that's where I'm at now. I notice the bootpack for the Inspiron 6400 is listed as questionable for every component, which suggests it hasn't been tested (at all? much?). Is there any way to tell exactly what hardware profile was used as the basis for the current Inspiron 6400 bootpack? Perhaps it's different from mine. Is there any way to build a custom bootpack based on MY hardware profile?
  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 other (old) posts I've found for users trying to install SL on the E1505 a gma950 specifc kext seems like it should work. The main issue I've had is the links to the gma950 kext in the various posts are all dead. In fact, there's a post in this forrum: https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1392-how-to-mac-os-x-snow-leopard-on-dell-inspiron-e15056400/ This actually may have been the post I originally used when I setup my Inspiron. If not this one, it was very similar. It refers to updating the GMA950 driver, but the link no longer works. I have found a couple other gma950 packs (on osx86), but none of those worked. Here's more details about my specific Inspiron E1505: Model: Dell Inspiron E1505 (same as 6400) BIOS: Dell A17 CPU: Intel Core Duo Yonah, 1.6GHz (T2050) Memory: 2GB, 533MHzm, DDR2 SDRAM Graphics: Intel 945GM Hard Drive: 80G SATA IDE - 82801GBM/GHM (ICH7 Family) Network: BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX Wireless: BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN CD/DVD: TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-L632D
  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 AppleIntelGMA950GA.plugin AppleIntelGMA950GLDriver.bundle AppleIntelGMA950VADriver.bundle AppleIntelGMAX3100.kext AppleIntelGMAX3100FB.kext AppleIntelGMAX3100GA.plugin AppleIntelGMAX3100GLDriver.bundle AppleIntelGMAX3100VADriver.bundle AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext If I don't move those, all I get is a black screen. I've tried a few different kext's for the GMA950, but nothing seems to work. According to lspci (using live linux distro) the display controller is: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03) I can provide more details about the entire system (complete lspci output, system profiler info, /Extra kexts installed, etc) if necessary. Any help appreciated.
