everything is working now except for the mouse cursor and the trackpad. I followed the directions for the cursor, but I'm unsure what to do next.

no clue on trackpad

I'm on my first boot after the combo update and amd and chameleon. Its stuck at the apple logo screen with the spinning wheels. Is it really this long? The wheels are turning but its been a while now.

Its been 30 minutes and its just spinning slowly. I did whats written here, the combo updater, do not restart, the amd kernel patch, and the chameleon. But after restarting, it's just stuck there

Im really sorry, but i have no clue on the trackpad....mine worked out of the box, u should try what IM 3LITE reccomended.

by the way IM 3LITE, did you buy everything already?

I'm on my first boot after the combo update and amd and chameleon. Its stuck at the apple logo screen with the spinning wheels. Is it really this long? The wheels are turning but its been a while now.

What I reccomend you is to boot on Verbose mode,when the chameleon boot screen comes up, type "-v" without the quotes, and then tellme what happens.

Still nothing. Ive got the Gateway NV5378u, is that the same as yours?

I think I have to re-do everything. Just a question, why do you have to do the combo upgrade and amd kernel patch?

well when i made the guide, i couldnt find a kernel for 10.6, so you wouldnt have to boot with empire efi, but i bearly found the right kernel HERE....if you ant to start again, do it....and then just skip the combo upgrade and the kernel patch and install the files on the link.

Oh yes, mine is the NV5378u, they are the same

Okay Ill let you know. YOU ARE THE BEST! Thanks a lot.

Also, I found out something, when you edit the info.plist file of the radeon kext, you have to rebuild the cache again using kext utility before you restart, otherwise its still a block of colors.

Ill let you know how it goes after i redo everything

The minimize and open animations seem a little choppy, is it really that way with the latest from dong's script?

Also, did you get the touch volume controls to work? It works, but I cant seem to lower the volume without going to the system prefs.

ok i just read about your computer.... it should work fine, everything is the same except fro the ram and hdd.

yeah, thats something else, the touch buttons work, but to lower the audio you have to lower it through system preferences..... so you were succesfull? did the kernel work?

And the animationsa re choppy since our video card doesn,t support QE/CI which is need to do alot of animation stuff in Mac OSX

yeah you dont need the combo updater, i just updated the guide... just download the kernel i posted butwait a little bit becaus ei have to change it a litttle bit, i had to rename the kernel to just be able to drag and drop..... download the kernel from HERE... when u install it just drag and drop it into the rrot of your Snow LEo HDD and click replace when prompted
