  1. Intel wifi is what it came from the factory with: 0c:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection [8086:4222] (rev 02) I replaced it with a Dell DW1505 BCM4321 Card, which was an exact fit, including attachment to the two antenna wires. The Apple OSX installer recognized it immediately as "airport" and asked to select router and provide password.
  2. Looking back on my first post in these forums and at the changelog for the EDP project on google, I see that I successfully ran EDPtool.command on February 20, and that major changes to the console interface took place starting February 24. I suspect that is why I'm having problems reproducing my success with EDPtool from several weeks ago. Hopefully some more fixes will bring the console interface back to life! The error message "The application cannot be opened because it has an incorrect executable format", is certainly suggestive. Many thanks for your hard work. I look forward to future improvements to the console so that I can once again run EDPtool. Update: I looked through my backup discs and found the earlier EDPtool file, kexts, and support files that worked for me on February 20. I manually copied these to my fresh 10.6.8 install, ran the older EDPtool console, held my breath and I now have full notebook functionality (with the exception of wired ethernet). The Inspiron E1705 GMA 950 Core Duo really can work as a Latitude D620, if one is willing to upgrade the wifi chip. But the current iteration of Install EDP won't get it there, unfortunately.
  3. One of the experienced Forum hands suggested I use Dell Latitude D620, GMA950 - 1440x900, and it worked perfectly except I never got the wired ethernet working. Now that I have a Dell 1505 Broadcom wifi installed, I can do without the ethernet as OSX picks up that card automatically.
  4. My E1705 is only Core Duo, so no Lion. Do you want to see screenshots of the error messages then with 10.6.8 installed? Still no usable edptool or through Safari. What baffles me is that I had the post-install stuff up and running a few weeks ago when I didn't know what I was doing.
  5. Thanks! That is what I understood. For best test of your changes, should I do clean install of 10.6.0 ?
  6. Leon, thanks for looking at this. Since my last post I went ahead and applied 10.6.8 combo. Still no go with latest re-installed EDP. Should I go back and do a fresh install of 10.6.0 ? And then try your changes? And when you say "reinstall EDP", do you mean run the "Install EDP" program that is downloaded as part of the post-install protocol?
  7. I've attached a screen shot of error message from EDPtool and of Safari "loading" wheel spinning (still spinning after 30 minutes) on that URL.
  8. After fresh virgin install of 10.6.0, launching EDP app and entering password generates the message I reported above in first post: "No matching processes were found PHP 5.4.12 Development Server started at Tue Mar 5 18:05:25 2013 Listening on http://0.0.0.0:11250 Document root is /Extra/bin/html Press Ctrl-C to quit. The application cannot be opened because it has an incorrect executable format. logout [Process completed]" Ticking in the link in Safari generates the error: Safari can't connect to server "0.0.0.0". This exercise also leaves the computer in an unbootable condition, until I run myhack and myfix from usb install stick. Which gets me back to my original bug report that the directions on the osxlatitude.com website are insufficient for post-install. There is clearly something else that is supposed to be done -- even if it is just the info that some later combo install of Snow Leopard (but which one?) is needed for 10.6.0 installers, before running Install EDP. (I'm now wondering if my initial "newbie" success at running Install EDP several weeks ago was due to there being a link present at that time to an older version.)
  9. I'll have to do a total fresh reinstall to give you the "virgin" message, but the message I get after repairing my 10.6.0 install using myhack and myfix from my usb stick (after trying to run EDP unsucessfully the first time from my boot drive) is Dialog Box: EDP Can't get class docf "edptool.command" of class cfol "Extra" of class sdsk of application Finder. This when I run EDP app from /Applications. I'll go ahead and do yet another fresh install so I can give you the "virgin" report. But it takes about 40 minutes. Just FYI, if I run the Safari command right now, it obviously won't work and I get message: Safari can't connect to the server. BTW, should I be upgrading to 10.6.8 (an additional 20 minutes) before messing with Install.EDP ? It's possible that the latest version can't support 10.6.0.
  10. I am giving up on wired ethernet for now. My Dell 1505 wifi card finally arrived from Hong Kong yesterday and it works great! The OS accepts it as native airport. Have moved my concerns to the EDP > Bugs forum, as I cannot comlete post-install following the directions written on the osxlatitude.com website. Thank you all for your replies, but please respond to my new post if you have the secret to making the current Install EDP program work as described. https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2183-post-install-directions-for-myhackedp-are-insufficient/
  11. If I follow these steps: "Download our Install EDP.app, from our download page. Run the app from the Install EDP.dmg, it will run all tasks automatically. After installation, it will popup our EDP script. Type your password, then you should see the EDP menu." I always get this result after running the Install EDP program: "No matching processes were found PHP 5.4.12 Development Server started at Tue Mar 5 18:05:25 2013 Listening on http://0.0.0.0:11250 Document root is /Extra/bin/html Press Ctrl-C to quit. The application cannot be opened because it has an incorrect executable format. logout [Process completed]" Some step has been omitted from the post-install directions, it would seem. Aside from the failure of post-install, the previous steps for installation work OK. Hardware is Inspiron E1705 GMA 950, 2 gig RAM, and newly-acquired Dell 1505 Broadcom wifi, which is recognized immediately by OSX. Using bootpack for Dell D620. Starting from 10.6.0. But post-install steps also fail if I apply combo update 10.6.8. The combo update also installs and boots without issue. But without being able to run the post-install steps, things like sound and sleep don't work. This is a fresh install. (I could swear I got through the post install stage OK a few weeks ago using a wifi dongle. Wired ethernet has never worked, so I have been dependent on wifi.) BTW I have fresh installed the OS MANY times to try to make this work. Please help! Thank you. The only other relevant info that I can think of is that I created my myhack+edp usb stick about 3 weeks ago, but am trying to complete post-install now. If this is an issue, then the formal instructions should say so, IMHO.
  12. I have added the deletion of that plist to the other steps. Unfortunately the results are the same: self-assigned IP address with no connection to router.
  13. If you mean have I deleted them from System Preferences > Network, then the answer is yes. If there is some other place I should delete something, then I'm not sure. Again, thank you.
  14. Thank your for that kext. I installed it and ran full myfix -t /Volumes/MacHD and rebooted. Using DHCP I get a self-assigned IP address starting with 169.254.x.xxx and cannot connect to my router. The Status is "Connected" but with Orange dot. If I manually configure the IP numbers I get a Green dot, but still can't connect to my router. If I boot with a linux live cd, I connect OK to my router and the internet - so my hardware and wiring seem to be OK. As I mentioned at the end of my other thread on this topic, my other (iFail) partition no longer connects to the ethernet if I use the osxlatitude bootloader system, but it does connect OK if I select that partition using an iboot (chameleon, stolen and rebranded) CD. I should note that I am successfully running 10.6.8 - although my install started from 10.6.0. Only wired ethernet is an issue at the moment. I have ordered a Broadcom 1505 wireless card, but it has not arrived yet and that may or may not be another issue/challenge.
  15. When I run /Extra/bin/lspci -nn I get the message "lspci: Cannot find any working access method." I get the same message if I sudo su before running the command. The general specs should be much the same as I posted in the first post of this thread, saved from when I ran lspci from Linux on this hardware before upgrading the RAM and BIOS. If you can advise me on how to get the lspci command to work under the osxlatitude install, I would be grateful. If necessary, I could use a live Linux distro again. Thanks all, for your replies. Update: From a linux live cd, the results of lspc -nn today are the same as listed above, with the exception that the final line above is gone, as I have turned off the builtin wireless in the BIOS. 00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/PM/GMS, 943/940GML and 945GT Express Memory Controller Hub [8086:27a0] (rev 03) 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:27a2] (rev 03) 00:02.1 Display controller [0380]: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:27a6] (rev 03) 00:1b.0 Audio device [0403]: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller [8086:27d8] (rev 01) 00:1c.0 PCI bridge [0604]: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family PCI Express Port 1 [8086:27d0] (rev 01) 00:1c.1 PCI bridge [0604]: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family PCI Express Port 2 [8086:27d2] (rev 01) 00:1c.3 PCI bridge [0604]: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family PCI Express Port 4 [8086:27d6] (rev 01) 00:1d.0 USB controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family USB UHCI Controller #1 [8086:27c8] (rev 01) 00:1d.1 USB controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family USB UHCI Controller #2 [8086:27c9] (rev 01) 00:1d.2 USB controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family USB UHCI Controller #3 [8086:27ca] (rev 01) 00:1d.3 USB controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family USB UHCI Controller #4 [8086:27cb] (rev 01) 00:1d.7 USB controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family USB2 EHCI Controller [8086:27cc] (rev 01) 00:1e.0 PCI bridge [0604]: Intel Corporation 82801 Mobile PCI Bridge [8086:2448] (rev e1) 00:1f.0 ISA bridge [0601]: Intel Corporation 82801GBM (ICH7-M) LPC Interface Bridge [8086:27b9] (rev 01) 00:1f.2 IDE interface [0101]: Intel Corporation 82801GBM/GHM (ICH7-M Family) SATA Controller [IDE mode] [8086:27c4] (rev 01) 00:1f.3 SMBus [0c05]: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family SMBus Controller [8086:27da] (rev 01) 03:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX [14e4:170c] (rev 02) 03:01.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394) [0c00]: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C832 IEEE 1394 Controller [1180:0832] 03:01.1 SD Host controller [0805]: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C822 SD/SDIO/MMC/MS/MSPro Host Adapter [1180:0822] (rev 19) 03:01.2 System peripheral [0880]: Ricoh Co Ltd R5C592 Memory Stick Bus Host Adapter [1180:0592] (rev 0a) 03:01.3 System peripheral [0880]: Ricoh Co Ltd xD-Picture Card Controller [1180:0852] (rev 05)
