Default AppleIntelGMA950.kext not working - 02-09-2012, 04:35 AM

Hello everyone.

I'm having an annoying problem with my Dell mini 1011. I have bios A04, The N270, and using NBI 0.8.5pre. After the OSX 10.6 install, I run NBI 0.8.5pre, wait forever for it to generate extensions or something. And then it asks for my password, then reboot afterwards.

Under verbose mode I see this:

Patching AppleIntelGMA960.kext
Deflated result is 0, in: 358268 bytes, out: 129561 bytes, full: 358268
ERROR: Unable to compress patched kext, not enough room.
Press a key to continue...

Patching Appleintegratedbuffer (or something, It went by too fast)

After pressing a button, it all loads fine. HOWEVER, the graphics are not enabled. I have reinstalled and reinstalled that damn NBI thing a 1000 times and got the same result (Insanity... right?). Below are forum posts that are similar... but just don't seem to resolve this issue.

Any thoughts? Thanks guys!

Wow, BIG thanks to underwhelmed for this response (I don't see his original post, though):

"Did you run NBI Pre immediately after finishing your OS X install and before rebooting?

I tried Pre, it hosed my working mini 9 so I went back to 0.8.4 RC1 for installs and 351 to update past 10.6.3."

I placed 0.8.4 RC1 onto my flash (which had actually had 0.8.5pre on it first) and reinstalled... EVERYTHING worked perfectly.

I can't believe it, this thing was a POS a few minutes ago and now works flawlessly. I'm surprised that NO ONE else has posted (or if they have, I didn't find it easily!)

This is perfect. Thank you so much, underwhelmed!

I am finding my mini 10v very slow as well after installing OS X (via mechdrews guide). I notice somebody else's post has been removed or something, so could you be a bit more specific on the steps you took to resolve this issue?

So the question is, What NBI are you using?

I originally had the BIOS A06 and used NBI 0.8.5pre. I thought having BIOS A06 was causing issues... so I downgraded to A04.

I reinstalled the OS (10.6.0) using NBI 0.8.5pre. After reinstalling, I ran NBI 0.8.5pre and let it do its thing. Sound worked afterwards. Great, but if you start up the computer using "-v" you'll notice that it actually doesn't install the video card drivers properly.

So, eventually I made this thread. underwhelmed posted that I use a different NBI, specifically: NBI 0.8.4 RC1. I downloaded it, and installed that to the same USB drive that originally had NBI 0.8.5pre, thus overriding that NBI with an older version.

I then proceeded to reinstall the OS again!

This time, I actually got that "Welcome" intro video upon finishing installation, which I never saw before. Then everything just worked... WAY faster than before. There was really nothing else to it. I believe that I also ran Netbookinstaller, that was within utilities of my fresh OS install.

I really do not understand why less people are having this issue, I've been noticing a few people claiming its slower but they never got any good responses...

Hope that helps!

Definitely make sure that, when in dashboard, when you drop a new widget in, that you get the ripple effect, AND also make sure that the top menubar is translucent!

Good luck!
