I think it will depend on your hardware. Kaly issued an update to 10.5.3 which you should be able to find through searching the forum, and 10.5.4 could be updated directly from Apple (use the Delta, NOT the Combo). The tricky update after that is 10.5.5 - there have been a wide range of results from downloading the Apple Delta, from no problems at all to bricked systems. (I successfully updated to 10.5.5 using Mysticus C's method, but it doesn't support IDE mode, so I removed it.) I think 10.5.6 Delta is pretty safe, but again, it may depend on your hardware.

I hope this helps.

I had no trouble updating from kalyway 10.5.1 to 10.5.6 using the combo update and the netkas method, worked great for me doing the following steps:

back up your extensions/data
Install pc-efi 9 very reliable boot loader from http://######.com/in...=...0&Itemid=48 open tools folder install bootloader.pkg. Ignore the dsdt stuff.

1. open directory utility enable root user from menu. set password.
2. open terminal type sudo su. enter password
3. in terminal typed without quotes. Enter.

"while sleep 1 ; do rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext ; done"

4.mount 10.5.6 combo, install while monitoring for appleintelcpupowermanagement.kext in extensions folder. Should appear and get deleted super fast. do not restart!

5. right click /System/InstallAtStartup folder. Get info. at bottom click lock and enter password. change permissions for everyone to read/write. Repeat step for folder /System/InstallAtStartup/scripts and for file /System/InstallAtStartup/scripts/1


6. Open 1 file in text edit. Find there Dont Steal Mac OS X.kext and replace with this dsmos.kext. save file.

7. if u have nvidia card move to trash all ati* and appleintelgma* kexts to trash.

8. Install voodoo kernel 9.5 with their setup package. http://code.google.com/p/xnu-dev/ only if u know you cannot use vanilla kernels on your hardware.

9. restart!

This worked great for me and i have tested it several times.

Worked great for me as well. This is the only update method that has worked for me. The only thing that bugs me is now i have to sleep it as soon as it boots up of all i get is a blank blue screen.

System specs:
Dell xps 410
2.13 GHz core 2 duo with cpus=1 flag
2Gbytes Ram
100 GB Maxtor Sata hd
NVidia 8600 GTS Graphics.


Update: Doh!! I found out that you can fix this blue screen problem by swapping your video cable over to the other port (if you have one) Now i dont have to sleep every time i install a new game or change resolutions

I tried updating from 10.5.3 to 10.5.6 using these instructions. Unfortunately the System now is in an endless reboot loop. Using -v it shows lots of "Loading HFS+ file: blabla.kext from 4230270" messages and then it suddendly reboots so fast I cannot even see the last message. I tried using the -v -x and update -x commands with no other result :-(

Edit:
OK by using the Pause key extensively I was able to stop the system at the last message which is just "Starting Darwin/X86"
I tried using the vanilla kernel and the system is an Abit Conroe 1333/DVI-H with Pentium Dual Core E2180.

Edit2:
Ok, I got it to boot by using my old iBook to install the Voodoo kernel to the HD. Now I just have to reenable QE (with Intel GMA 950) and Sound...

The problem is that 10.5.5 update from Kaly 10.5.2.

I have Kalyway 10.5.2.

Kalyway Combo Update 10.5.3 (Apple Combo Update 10.5.3 + Kalyway patch)

Apple Delta (single update, I dont know why you people are calling it Delta???) 10.5.4

and when I try 10.5.5 Apple Delta to install it gives me a gray screen and says I need to restart, the install freezes at
....X11.app/Contents/Resources/zh_TW.lproj/main.lib
....X11.app/Contents/Resources/zh_CN.lproj/main.lib
Its somewhere on 39%

Can someone give tips where to find "HOW TO" for 10.5.5? I really suck at searching this board since people commonly dont use tags...

I tried this from Kalyway 10.5.2 and when I restart, I just get "waiting for root device". I followed the instructions exactly too. I also tried a boot cd that I know works and that wouldn't boot it either. What could fix this?
My system is:
core 2 duo E6420
Nvidia 9600GT 512MB
Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L

Thanks for any help :)

EDIT: Would a Kalyway 10.5.1 disc fix this problem? Because I just tried this on a 10.5.2 disc.

Many people I know said that 10.5.1 was pure joy to install to 10.5.6 even! :(
I dont have the disc so Im stuck with 10.5.2

Hi
I followed every step in updating from Kal 10.5.2 to the official Apple 10.5.6 combo
and it all went fine except that it screwed up some of my hardware.

Lost my soundcard which worked fine in 10.5.2
(I had no info about the driver in System profiler though to start with but it worked for output sound)

My graphics card (GeForce 6600) runs the same driver as before but is very sluggish.
In System profiler it reports the "Core Image" to be running in Software mode instead
of Hardware Accelerated as I had in 10.5.2

The good part (I hope :thumbsup_anim:) is that I have my old system still installed and intact and bootable
since I did a Carbon Copy clone of the drive before updating.

Also it's now showing the wrong processor info which is no big deal of course.

Soooo, can anyone help me get this fixed please?

In the Extensions folder there are some files that are highlighted in green, no idea what it means
but they are the same files on both systems and one is the AppleAC97Audio.kext which of course
is for sound but my card is a Realtek ALC882.

Any ideas??

Thanxxxx...

The exact same thing happened to me. My mobo is a Asus P5W DH Deluxe, and a Geforce 7950 512Mb. The graphics card went to software, no sound, and the CPU information was showing 3.8Ghz when it's actually running @ 3.11Ghz. Hopefully someone will find a way to fix this.. I tried using the extensions that I had backed up, but no luck with that.

Hey
I found some fixes, actually the only ones that worked out of the numerous tries I've done.

- Sound was fixed with the ALC882 drivers on iPC X86 Dvd (don't know what soundcard you have)
- Hardware enabled graphics (I tries a bunch and this is THE one) NVinstaller at http://scottdangel.com/blog/?p=56
- "About this Mac" info can be manually edited with OSX86 Tools, no explanation why it shows the wrong info though.

Hope some of this helps, glad to contribute with some info..
I've gotten so many great hints and tips browsing around here (installed my first OsX86 two days ago) :thumbsup_anim:
Currently running Kalyway 10.5.2 updated to 10.5.6 from Apple using this thread. All hardware works and it kicks my pc's a**

I've got the Vanilla Kernel. Must I follow this how to?
Or is there an other way to intall the 10.5.6 combo-update

BTW: Is there an other way to backup my leopard without useing Time Machine because I must erase my HD but there are a lot of windows backups on it.

I was using Kalyway 10.5.2
First I did this:
8. Install voodoo kernel 9.5 with their setup package. http://code.google.com/p/xnu-dev/ only if u know you cannot use vanilla kernels on your hardware.
because I had the same problem as the user "adylevy" above in this thread.
I followed all the other steps as described in this post.
The 10.5.4 combo update was successfully completed. When I rebooted, i found that my PS2 keyboard and mouse stopped working. Leopard boots successfully and it does not hang or anything but the keyboard and mouse dont work.
I googled and found
http://forum.insanel...hp/t102236.html
and then after googling more and eventually replacing ACPIPS2 I still could not solve this problem.
One of the solutions i came across was to use Vanilla kernel and now i have installed fresh kalyway 10.5.2 with Vanilla kernel. I may have to now install Voodoo kernel so that I can successfully complete the 10.5.4 combo update installation. Will that mean, that if i install the voodoo kernal now, it was no use installing the Vanilla kernel earlier and that my mouse and keyboard stilll would not work ?
Plz help.
Thanks in advance.

I'm using Carbon Copy Clone which works great and it's freeware.

After my first succesful install w/ drivers working and everything setup I cloned that partition
to a second one. It's a great way when you update kexts or upgrading since the clone partition
is bootable from the bootloader with F8 and you are back to the previous install and you can
reinstall/add kexts, kernels, bootloaders etc to your crashed install from there:)
