Hello guys, I installed el capitan on this machine, everything works except some minor things:

trackpoint is damn fast and jumpy. unusable. buttons work fine, just speed. I used a t430 guide kext pack but is not working properly, tried different kexts, synaptics driver, nothing. I also tried to edit config.plist but is way over my knowledge about this driver

If I shut down the system it just reboots (??)

I read somewhere that intel centrino N wifi has no support in osx, can you guys confirm?

thanks in advance for your attention and your help! cheers

Regarding Intel WiFi, read FAQ: http://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.164990/

Please provide complete details in your profile/signature
(Profile/Settings link in upper right corner of this site)

Mobo: manufacturer/model + bootloader(Clover/Chameleon/Chimera)
CPU: detailed CPU model + motherboard chipset
Graphics: all graphics devices + laptop internal screen resolution

For example, typical Ivy laptop:
Mobo: HP ProBook 4540s (Clover)
CPU: i5-3320m/HM76
Graphics: HD4000, 1366x768

Use CPU-Z on Windows to find CPU (Core iX-xxx) and motherboard chipset (HMxx), and graphics capabilities. For a laptop, these details are important and affect critical installation procedures.

Note: When specifying your bootloader, if using Clover legacy, please be sure to specify "Clover legacy"). Specifying "Clover" will be assumed as "Clover UEFI"

I haven't found anything related to my nub problem
in a T420 thread the guy changed/added some strings in voodootrackpad.kext config.plist to get different speed for the nub
I used his configuration changing laptop name to T430 (hoping) but no luck

Search for specific VoodooPS2Controller.kext build for your trackpad/nub.
