Is there anyone tried these methods successfully on AMD?


No, i didn't had success with my AMD 64 3000+.
But finally i updated with ASU (amd software update).

I've got kalyway 10.5.2 updated successfully to 10.5.6, but i have 2 serious issues right now.
My graphics driver (Nvidia GeForce 7600 GT) and usb ports don't work anymore. I tried the USB Fix 1.3 for Kalyway, but nothing changed.

The nvidia driver problem i wanted to solve with a newer version of NVinject, but again nothing.
The driver doesn't recognized.

I would be grateful for every suggestion.

Greets,
psuecox

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.



Pardon my ignorance, but is this the standard Apple combo 10.5.6 update or a kaylway combo update?

Thanks

When I follow this guide I get a message pop up in terminal, "unable to load info.plist extensions.

I ain't tried a reboot yet as it just poped up this second, but its happened before and I have got stuck at the Grey apple loading screen forever and nothing happens, anyone able to help? I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 with a T2130 (I think)


EDIT: I have now got to the loading screen, waits on the grey loading screen for a bit, then gets to the blue screen, then the screen turns black and I have to reboot. Any ideas?

I had 10.5.2 up and running. I had to install jsas see2 or whatever patch or I would get the "Using 2621 buffer headers and 2621 cluster IO buffer header" error.

After I did the 10.5.6 update i am back to this same error?
Anyway to fix it?

anyone know if this would work for Leo4Allv3 10.5.2? I couldn't get Kaly to load right, so I went with Leo. I know have a pretty much perfect system, with the exception of the sleep fix which I need to load tonight.

I followed these steps, also installed that Voodoo thing. I didn't see any AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext, but a file with the same name except with .orig at the end, so I thought that must be a backup or something.

I rebooted, and then.. nothing. It doesn't even get to the Darwin boot screen, it's just stuck at the black hardware checking screen. So I booted to windows (another HDD) and deleted that .orig file via MacDrive. Still doesn't work.

Any clues? It was a 10.5.2 Kalyway, the specs are:

Intel C2D E4300 @ 2.8GHz
Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3
Nvidia 8600GT

Sorry dparada78 but your instructions just don't work ;) I have followed everything you have written and still I get errors of "waiting for root device" when trying to boot into leopard after updating.

I am trying to upgrade from Kalyway 10.5.2 using the 10.5.6ComboUpdate from the Apple site. My hackintosh is a Dell 530 Core2Quad. Your instructions are no use:(

Chipset: p965 / ICH8
LAN: Realtek 8110SC
Audio: ALC888

Just updated from Kalyway 10.5.2 to 10.5.6 using the Netkas method cited above. I had been hesitating, but in the end it worked perfectly.

Things that work now, which didn't work before: I can now hot-plug usb storage devices. The GeForce 9800GT I just installed works perfectly, OpenGL acceleration, Quartz Extreme, all resolutions. It is recognized by CUDA for general purpose GPU development.

Thanks for posting this information. Update seems particularly useful if you want to use newer graphics adapters. I was using carefully selected hardware (Intel chipset and processor, graphics card similar to nVidia 8800 etc.) so that might explain the problem-free update.

Details of my hardware configuration are here:

Please, I beg your forgiveness for the Post, as I'm sure the answers are listed in the forum many times (eluding me however.)

I have a Inspiron 6400 with Intel945 GMA 950
I used Kalyway 10.5.2 everything works but the video. CI is software and no QE.

Can someone please provide active links and directions to solve this? So damn close to having the system done and 100%. NEED YOUR HELP! lol Biggest challenge was finding active links everything was expired/no longer available.

Many thanks!

Hi, I am really new at this, well I installed Kalyway 10.5.2 in my Inspiron E1505 which I believe is the same Inspiron 6400, when you installed did you customized the installation and select de video 'drivers' for the intel GMA950?? I did it that way and got to work the QE/CI. I have a question for you, do you have your soundcard working, I mean if you plug in your headphones does your speaker shut?

I don't know if I was of any help....
