Awesome work here. Thank you.

*EDIT

Will there be a 10.6.7 kernel update?


10.6.7 Atom Kernel



patch means combo upgrade.. not KERNEL ATOM PATCHED :thumbsup_anim:

I just want to make sure i have the process right here...

i just finished my first one - a lenovo s10 with 10.6.3

when i read Tea's blog i see there are three steps for me to update to 10.6.7

i download the patch

run terminal commands

run the update

dont reboot - run more terminal commands.


There there is a lot of information about .kext files - am i missing a step or not catching some prerequisite?

from reading it seems like the terminal commands take care of the .kext files, true?

This is just a random thought of mine, and I couldn't think of anywhere else to put this. Would it be possible for Atom support to be patched into the Lion Developer Preview? If not, does that mean those of us on Atom based netbooks are going to be stuck on Snow Leopard for good?

Hi,

I only have the 10.6.0 Snow Leopard install DVD as I bought it a couple years ago. Been trying to get working on an Atom D525 and only way I could boot the installer usb dvd image was to copy the 10.6.2 patched atom kernel onto the usb key. Problem is I get Kernel panic at boot after it installs.

I tried to install the osx onto an externel usb hard drive and got around the KP problem by running the 10.6.4 combo update onto the external drive and copying the mach_kernal 10.6.4 file onto the root. Then I could boot into safe mode. Problem is I'm trying to the install onto a hard drive thats installed into a netbox where I can't run combo update unless I pull it out of the case and hook it to an external usb adapter I suppose, but if there was a patched 10.6.0 atom kernel anywhere anyone know where I could find it?

Or am I thinking too hard here? Maybe I should just buy a new SL 10.6.3 install DVD from Bestbuy?

Thanks.

The video worked for me in upgrading a 10.6.0 Acer Aspire One ZG5 to 10.6.7, with the following noted:
  • No sleepenabler.kext installed in 10.6.0, so downloaded the latest version and installed in system/Library/Extensions when I got to that step. I'm not sure whether this is even required for the Acer Aspir One (Can anyone comment, please?)
  • No mach_kernel_atom2 in root, as system still at 10.6.0, so no need to rename the file.
  • Had multiple "System Extension cannot be used" msgs after restart, fixed by running kext utility.
Apart from these things, all working ok.
Many thanks to Teateam for the excellent work in both the patched files, and the video.

MAik,

A patched Lion kernel is currently being worked on. It has been patched for 64bit Atom CPU's, but 32bit should be done very soon.

I hope this helps you.

All the best,

Thanks
