After upgrading to 10.3.8, uControl refused to load (the kernel extension). Did anyone experience the same problem?

FWIW, I can verify it too- mine's not working after the 10.3.8 update.
OS X: Where software installation doesn't require wizards with shields.

You can fix this, if you have developer tools installed and have a little patience.

1) Go to sourceforge.net and sign up,
2) Access ucontrol project
3) Check out the 1.4.4 release via anonymous CVS (use the -r to specific tag)
4) Compile it (make)
5) Install it ( sudo make install)
6) Reboot

Done.

If you need help with this, email me, or post here, if there's a demand I will write up more easy to follow instructions. Hopefully the authors will just post a newly compiled version at some point themselves.

Hm.. just did that. The only additional step I took - between 3) and 4), cd src.

But it still didn't work. The message I saw from the console.log is this:

top level name ucontrol in ucontrol.config is invalid

(this showed up before I tried compiling uControl from CVS) Any suggestion?

Check out the bug. "NOBODY" has posted a great write up:

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index...03&atid=582661

I've added a couple of the CVS steps if you prefer to use CVS...


1. Open Terminal
2. In Terminal type (one line at a time):

cvs -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvsroot/ucontrol login

(PASSWORD just hit enter key)

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvsroot/ucontrol co -r rel1_4_4 -P ucontrol/

I'll copy and paste the instructions here: (credit is not mine)


1. Open Terminal (leave it open until you restart your computer)
2. In Terminal type (one line at a time):

rm ~/Library/Preferences/org.gnufoo.kext.uControl.plist
cd ~/Desktop
mkdir ucontrolfix
cd ucontrolfix
curl -O http://gnufoo.org/ucontrol/ucontrol1.4.4.tgz
tar zxvf ucontrol1.4.4.tgz
cd ucontrol1.4.4/src
open -a textedit.app kext/ODHIDHack.cpp

3. The last line in Terminal should open a file in TextEdit.
Now find this
line:

IOHIDSystem::instance()->scrollWheelEventGated(scrollY, scrollX,
0, ts,
NULL);

and replace it with this:

IOHIDSystem::instance()->scrollWheelEvent(scrollY, scrollX, 0,
ts);

4. Save the file and close TextEdit
5. In Terminal type (one line at a time):
make
sudo make install

6. Restart your computer




Now uControl works again for me!
