    Default Ethernet breaks Trackpad and Battery

    Hello,

    I did a fresh install of Snow leopard (iAtkos S3 V2) My ethernet did not work so I moved a Intele1000e.kext That made it operational but I lost by battery detection and my trackpad no longer works. I am no expert about kext in OSX but why in /System does that break the trackpad and battery. (Even better how can I fix it?)

    Note: My keyboard and the Mouse use a the Apple PS/2 Driver

    Default Bump

    Does anyone have an idea, or is this one of their magical experiences?
    There has to be a reason this is happening, I don't believe in magic.

    Thanks!

    No, I've not and it's strange that you had.
    Maybe if you post your system specs, if your keyboard still working but the trackpad, and if you know all the kexts that were installed/loaded for battery and trackpad then someone may get some ideas.

    Default Intresting....

    This is strange... When I move the Intel kext out of the /Extra/Extensions back to the desktop it does not return back to normal... In otherwords the trackpad and the battery still do not work...

    Any ideas?

    It looks like with that command you just basically move/copy the kext, and with your recent post, it makes sense that the system/startup cache are not clear and mkexts are not rebuilt.

    You can move the kext back into /E/E and then run Kext Utility at least once, if you have not done so.
    Then reboot your system and post your result.

    I thought that the -f flag when booting cleared the kext cache... I guess it was not enough...

    Thanks for the help so far everything is working...

    Well, It all kinda works. This is really strange to me.

    If I move the Intel kext into /Extra/Extensions and reboot ethernet works but breaks trackpad and battery.

    If I run kext utility after putting the Intel kext in /Extra/Extensions everything works except the ethernet...

    Any idea what could cause this?
