I love this driver, and I love meklort for showing me that writing an OS X kext isn't so bad.

Re: Touchpad drivers

It's not just the upgrade causing the plist problem -- mine keeps going back to this problem, and deleting the plist definitely isn't always working. For example at the moment I can close system...

Re: Touchpad drivers

I got this error as well; deleting the preferences .plist seems to fix it, though it took a couple of tries once.

Re: A90 vs Mini 9 (some common questions -- all in one place)

I've tried three times to answer this question, since I would order an A90 within 5 minutes of learning that it does have the WWAN slot. However, the reading I've done on Dell's website makes me...

Re: A90 part order failure!

I tried asking a couple of A90 questions on Dell chat recently, and every time they unceremoniously bug out, just like your experience. It's rank bull%@!# if you ask me.

Re: Can I point Ubuntu grub towards the DellEFI bootloader?

Right now v1.1 and v1.2a5 are nearly identical in performance and stability, so upgrading to 1.2a5 would mostly just give you the graphical bootloader, which does boot linux partitions, though I...

Re: Can I shrink the DVD image?

The 2-finger scroll offered by all current releases of DellEFI (up to 1.2a5 as of now) is an old implementation called "ffscroll" that's unrelated to meklort's driver and does not work well.
