    Default New Guide for Retail Install

    I succeeded. Pretty complete install. I'm making a new thread so that it doesn't go unnoticed. Ta ta. It's been fun. (aggravating and time-wasting?! hackintosh is a way of life...)

    See the netbook section of my website for drivers: sites.google.com/site/ultimatetablet

    I have everything installed and it seems to be working. However I'm still getting some periodic Kernel Panics and the mouse is still choppy in response. Any suggestions?

    Try my retail guide in this subforum, or don't install the Voodoo kernel yet, just boot with "cpus=1" at the Darwin boot prompt.

    Good luck.

    Booted with cpus=1 and it now starts fine. I thought I had it pinned down to being something with the video driver but it was working fine until I just installed the wired ethernet kext. Now I'm back to the pointer hanging up in motion and then zipping across the screen when it lets go. Something is causing the OS to stumble around. I just don't know what it is. I'm running an Aspire One 150-1577 fresh out of the box bone-stock. The only kext I've installed is "AttansicL1eEthernet.kex" The wired internet does work right. I have repaired the disc permissions.

    I have not done the software updates as I did this last time I install and it did nothing to make it better although it did make it so that I had kernel panics about every 5 minutes. I did do the voodoo update and I can't tell if it did anything different but it didn't fix it.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Default How to Avoid Kernel Panics

    Seriously, try my guide. Don't worry about the Linux and Windows sections unless you're interested.

    My procedure was to install as untouched a version of MacOS as I could. It turns out that once I got it all set up, Voodoo doesn't KP anymore. Even when I mount an archive, and I haven't replaced seatbelt or System.

    I'll be posting benchmarks comparing Voodoo with Vanilla with Linux (with Windows on a few fronts too) later tonight.


    {I just wanted to correct this: when I mounted a .dmg there was no KP. When Safari did, there was one. Replacing System.kext from the package and seatbelt.kext from 10.5.5 solved this. Now KPs only occur when the system tries to sleep. i.e., when I started a 5 hour benchmark, (called "netbook", I thought it'd be shorter...) the system KPed after the 15 minutes it takes to go to sleep on AC. then I powered off, then on, resumed my benchmark automatically (!), I turned sleep off for the duration of the benchmark, and it didn't KP once under high stress}

    I am not sure the 150-1577 is the same ? this tut is referring to the AOD150-1Bb .. the one with the ATOM 280 and not the 270. The main issue I had was with the wireless ( I guess the best solution is to change the Atheros A5007EG to something that OSX can use natively like the Dell 1870 or something ).

    As for the software updates ( boot with -x to stop the kernel panics and update ) esp the Security updates - I updated everything and it fixes the sluggish mouse for mine ( or it could be due to Spotlight indexing the drives which slows things down ).

    I am giving up on the Atheros wireless ( like I mentioned, out of 5 reboots, i'm lucky if it even work once .. most times it just can't locate any network or it freezes the system or the airport card goes dead - can't detect it with KisMac ) will get those USB 3G thingies that works of the cell network

    Now my system panics when it goes to sleep

    The 150-177 is just a subset of the 10.1 inch Acer Aspire 150. I'm not sure if the the 177 makes any difference but I thought it was worth mentioning. I'm going to try a fresh install of the 10.5.6 XXX tomorrow and see what kexts I actually need to install otherwise, I'll give Night Tallon's guide a try. What the heII; nothing else has worked right so what's another install?

    Everything seems to work fine until I try to make the ethernet work, the audio work or make the video work. When I have tried other OS's, before I fix the screen resolution, no mouse lag. When I make the screen work right, everything else starts screwing up which makes me think that's what is tripping me up. The R1000 wired driver doesn't work so I've stopped trying that. The Voodoo HDA audio thing works fine except that the OS is running like such crap that I can't get anything to play for more than a few seconds. This last time I installed XXX 10.5.6, the video worked fine but I had no wired internet connection. I installed the Attansic kext and everything fell apart.

    I've ordered a used Airport card off eBay so I'm not even giving any thought to making the stock card work right. I'd like the screen to be the right dimension, the network both wire and wireless to work and I'd like the speakers to work. That's it.

    Thanks for your help.

    I did a fresh install and I have some things working and some not. The video resolution is working fine. I got the software updates done by booting with the -x command into safe mode. All the updates are done and the mouse works smoothly and the ethernet works. No sound. If I boot without the -x switch, I get the sound but the pointer is all choppy again. So I guess my question is what am I switching off in safe mode other than the audio driver? That seems to be where my trouble lives. I have installed the AttansicL1eEthernet.kext and the vooodooHDA.ketx, that's it.

    Thanks again.

    OK booted with the install CD and voila, got my OSX back ... set it to hibernatemode 0 and removed the /var/vm/sleepimage and now it boots normally
