I used Kext Utility to install the kext; very easy to use. And now that I think about it, my battery light used to cycle on and off when I closed the lid but now it doesn't seem to, and before I'd hear what I'm guessing is the drive head parking itself, but that doesn't happen, either. So maybe it's only my display that's gone to sleep, not the Dell itself
I'm having that same self assigned IP issue when connecting to WPA2 networks, however I can connect to WEP networks just fine. So it seems to be something with WPA2. I haven't tried deleting Networkinterfaces.plist yet, I'll give that a go and post the results.

I think all the complexities of installing Snow Leopard what makes this hackentoshing experience so interesting.

Now everything boots normally and Ethernet works. Trackpad works with three-finger scrolling. Looks like the system goes to sleep on inactivity so I need to figure out how to put the display to sleep as well, but that can wait.

My main issue now is that I have Wifi after updating with IO80211Family.kext but although it recognizes my network, I end up with the message "AirPort has the self-assigned IP address 169.254.148.44 and will not be able to connect to the Internet."

I have tried rebooting my router, toggled my Configure IPv4 from Using DHCP to Off and back again. I have tried renewing my DHCP lease. My DNS tab was blank so I manually added the info that is in my MacBook but that didn't help. Any ideas, anyone?
I have 1012 and I have same issue with you. But I can connect with manual settings. I'm using WPA on my home router and I didn't try my mini with another router.

When I try to open kext utility it gets to "Repair permissions for "System/Library/Extensions" then it says "timedout" this happens when I try to install the lidsleep.kext not sure why its doing that. Does this happen to anyone else?

Hi,

I am thinking about buying the Mini 1012 with the higher res screen. Will I be able to load Mac OSX on it? I saw mentions of no hardware acceleration. Does that mean I cant watch youtube on it?

Thanks,
Rich
