Lol. Don't worry. There's no too much of it over here in England.
Don't get too much sun!
We don't want you to fry your hackintosh brain! We need your brain to help us! LOL
You could all still happily run your rigs without me here.. All I do is read, test and collate all relevant info from around the scene and pass it on here.
Tmongkol's thread has that answered for you.
I just upgraded to 10.6.8... Up until now my board was immune to the no sound issues after system upgrades as it has ALC889a... well the board has no sound after the 10.6.8 upgrade!
Yes. I agree with that.
System seems to be running a little faster.
Blackosx, I tried using the terminal command diskutil list, and it does not show the usb drive. I don't know why it comes up in the system profiler though. Everything was perfect on 10.6.7.
My keyboard and mouse still work. I tried the atheros fix from 10.6.7 from netkas' website, but that didn't seem to do the trick.
When I boot with my network card in, the computer still operates very very slow and sluggish. The airport is showing as active but says "The status of your wireless connection is unknown.
hmmm. It's not looking good for you. Looks like something didn't go right with the update.
Maybe I should try reinstalling the 10.6.8 combo?
Also, I'm using a really old version of Chameleon 2.0 rc3 I think. Could these two things have anything to do with it?
Maybe - but I would definitely upgrade to the latest Chameleon.
Lol.. Hopefully that will work.
I have a time machine backup, if I can't solve the problem I may just restore from time machine, that is..if I can get my usb ports to work when I use a boot cd with a 10.6. disk.
Failing that. Create a small partition at the end of your HDD, an re-install Snow Leopard to that from your retail DVD. It might only be 10.6.0 or 10.6.3 but at least you will able to test if the USB drives mount in that. If they do then maybe update that to 10.6.8 and see what happens (using the combo updater). But like I say with every point update - Always apply it first to a secondary OS X installation on your machine before running against your main system. This gives you a chance to test it out and see if you have any hardware issues etc.
Just wanted to drop a quick thank you to BOSX, you are a gentlemen and a scholar. After the 10.6.8 update my usual method of getting sound back by restoring the old AppleHDA.kext from Time Machine didn't work so I followed your guide in an earlier post about patching AppleHDA etc....and low and behold sound is back and better than ever.
Thank you for the kind words and I am happy to know that cparms audio solution posted here helped you out. It worked again for me also with the Lion GM release.
Did it? Cool. I only have one screen here so can only dream of that..
10.6.8 brought dual monitor support for my HIS ATI HD4760 (been waiting a long time for that) now my machine actually sleeps (well atleast with a standard hardrive).
Strange. Did your mahcine sleep with 10.6.7 with the Crucial SSD?
For some reason sleep doesn't work with my Crucial C300 SSD. But no way I would trade sleep for the speed I get with my drive.
YW. But like I said to Johnny V - I'm just sharing info which I've read from the real hero's in this game
Anyway Thanks again Black for sharing your knowledge with the rest of us. It is much appreciated.
