Hey,

The reason why I need to update to 10.6.3 is someone has found a working solution for my graphics card. I attempted update myself yesterday, but totally bricked my installation.

I use the Hazard disc to install, to I can update from a 10.6.0-10.6.2 install, which ever you think is easiest to update from. I just have no clue how to do this (thus this post in the "New Users Lounge") :)

I was wondering if someone could guide my along, or reffer me to a working guide to update to 10.6.3.

Thanks,
Bob
:)

Here's my specs:

Mobo: Biostar MCP6P M2+
Processor: AMD x2 (Turion I think) 2.7 Ghz
Generic DVD Drive
450W PSU
ATI Sapphire HD4830 512MB
2x2GB Ram
500GB HD

I think that should be sufficient. Any ideas? :(

after update you must install legacy kernel before restart :wacko:

update to 10.6.4

then use this kernel

Hey,

Thanks for your help! I need to specifically update to 10.6.3 so I'll install the 10.6.3 legacy kernel I found here.

A quick question: how can I install a kernel before the restart after the update?

Also, is there anything I need to remove, such as sleepenabler or IntelCPUPowerManagement? How would I go about doing this?

Thanks! :unsure:
