Unable to Load VooDoo Battery on Dell Vostro 1500 under 10.6.2
« on: February 25, 2010, 08:38:51 PM »
The kext loads fine, there just isn't any indicator on the status bar. I have gone to Power settings, and changed the radio box, a place is briefly created on the bar, before then returning to previous state of nothingl, and the system self-unchecking the power settings box. I successfully used the 2009 Uphuck battery utility under 10.6.2 which worked until I went 64 bit...then it too disappeared. Ideas anyone?

Post the output from ioreg -lw0 and the output from the power tab from System Profiler. Then we can go from there.

Ok, not much there, did you post this after you attempted to load the kext?

You can download the version from here http://www.superhai.com/debug-darwin.html and post the output from the system.log related to the kext.

I took several shots from the system log and posted it. Hopefully something stands out to you as the error.

It is working just fine. Ensure that your system is identified as a laptop.

This might be a stupid question, but is the system preferences -> Power saver -> show battery status in menu bar check box checked?

If you think the kext is not working, please post a bug report with the help from the bug report template. I close this because of lack of information from the new posters.
