VoodooPS2Keyboard patched for working wireless key
« on: February 27, 2010, 05:36:56 PM »
I want to make my little contribution to this project, though it's so specific that probably hardly anyone can make use of it. I have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro V3505 laptop that comes with a software-only wireless key. So, if you use anything different than Windows you'll have to find a way to activate your wireless card. In Linux, it can be turned on and off using the acerhk kernel module.

So, I have patched the VoodooPS2Keyboard extension from VoodooPS2Controller 0.98 adding it two features: make the contextual menu key be an option key, and implement the wireless enable/disable from the special key (Function + F10) based on the acerhk Linux kernel module source. Both options come enabled by default and can be easily disabled in the Info.plist file.

Here is the patched kernel extension for Snow Leopard (currently working in version 10.6.2). And here is the source code.

If this is useful to you, enjoy!
