Unfortunately it's not that simple.. the new kernel has changed startup code and locking mechanisms.. So currently, even after manually applying this patch and making it compile correctly, when the ASM runs and locks the cpu, it hangs.. So something else probably already has the lock.. or gcc 4.2 is possibly doing something bad to the inline asm..

you can trust cosmo. he is probably THE one who knows how to do it. I know for a fact that somebody else is trying at the moment and has problems compiling it without errors. Go for it if you know what you are doing. I tried to read some of it and it was way above my head.

Hey download the kext with firefox, i know my version of safari wasnt extracting the tar correctly. Use stuffit or something. Installed to S/L/E of a fresh install and all is working perfectly fine. :blink:

Seems to work fine in 32-bit mode with 10.6.2.

I am getting a KP in 64-bit mode, but I think it's more likely related to graphics updates.
