To delete IOATAFamily.kext, all you have to do is open the installation window (the window that shows "Install Mac OSX," "Optional Installs," etc.), click on any of the white/blank space in the window, and type cmd+shift+g. This opens up a panel that lets you type in and navigate to the directory mentioned, /System/Library/Extensions. You'll find the kext there.
10.6.1 and everything-thanks Noxin
Great instructions. A couple things required some thinking, and the browse-to-delete step coulda used some explicitness, but great instructions. I haven't done anything about sound switching because I figure I'll work with headphones only for sound-related items.
Great job Noxin. I just finished my Time Machine backup. Only thing not working is gestures but that's to be expected. I have full resolution, updates, time machine, all to make for quite a setup. I'm still not completely convinced this 1024x600 is a worthwhile experience, but if I gotta use this Toshiba, it's sure nice to have the OS X experience along.
I'm glad I decided to go ahead and check back in with this forum. It seemed to go dormant for awhile but perked up just in time. Keep up the good work everyone, and please post when dot updates happen so we can continue to enjoy OS X on the Toshiba.
Any news on Atheros WiFi support? And another question.
First & foremost, thank you to everyone here that has contributed in this forum (especially you, Wingzero619). The wealth of information from all of you has been an invaluable asset.
I am both happy & proud to announce that despite of few dead ends & a few obstacles, I now have a Toshiba nb205 running 10.6.1 (my Netbookintosh), & with the obvious exceptions, it works great!
In Astrological's post #460 it was indicated that "Atheros has been found working on Snow Leopard, will have a kext soon". I was just following up to see if anyone has yet to stumble upon said kext? If so, where can it be found? If not, how close is the release of that kext, or is there a viable work-around without having to purchase any additional components?
Secondly, now that I have 10.6.1 up & running on the machine, is there an easy way to install Windows 7 and make it a dual boot configuration without having to reformat & start from scratch? Initially, I thought I had no need to Windows support, but have second-guessed myself.
Thanks again for everyone's contributions and encourage everyone to keep up the fantastic work.
