[Answered] Is there a VoodooPS2Controller for Snow Leopard
« on: August 27, 2009, 11:01:10 PM »
I am currently working on installing Snow Leopard on one of my test drives.  I was wonderng if there is a VoodooPS2Controller in the works anyplace that works with Snow Leopard.  Or, can anyone tell me for sure that the current version works with Snow Leopard?

Update: I found the answer myself.  The short answer is that the current version will work in Snow Leo.  I was placing it in /Extra/Extensions without building an Extensions.mkext file because it was the first boot under Snow Leo. That resulted in a mouse cursor that was frozen in the upper left corner of the screen.

Out of desperation, I tried to boot in single user mode.  That worked.  Then, I used the following command to build the Extensions.mkext under Snow Leo.

Code: [Select]
kextcache -v 1 -t -m /Extra/Extensions.mkext   /Extra/Extensione
Then, after renaming the Extensions folder,  I restarted the system.  Now, the mouse cursor works just fine.

As far as I've seen this will work in 32bit mode only though.
A compiled 64bit flavor would be bonus.

At the boot prompt, enter "-s" and press Enter

Did you delete the ApplePS2Controller from /S/L/E before staging these in /Extra/Extensions ? Can you tell me the procedure ?

Sorry for the late reply.  I had not been following this area for a while - working on a Linux home theater PC.

I did not delete anything from /S/L/E or any other part of SL.  My goal is to keep SL as near vanilla possible.  All my overrides/adjustments are in the /Extra folder with the exception of boot, boot0 and the patched mach_kernel.xxx which is referenced in /Extra/con.apple.Boot.plist.

Is there any chance to get this working for Snow Leopard x86_64 ???

I've been trying some kexts compiled for x86_64 as they say, but i can't get it to work and in 32bit it works the same installer package as for leopard.

And i'm using a ps2 mouse not a touchpad or anything else.
