Glad that worked for you!

FKA i know, I had the same GFX issues On both Lion DP4 AND 10.6.8 until i switched kexts then it was fine after that Apple has seemingly changed something up Not quite sure but using the older kexts worked out perfect for me

Works fine on my Gigabyte G31M-ES2L (had to remove and reinstall VoodooHDA-0.2.56.pkg) but it's completely broken Wi-Fi.

I had been using a Belkin (Broadcom BCM4306 based) PCI card but that refused to be seen in Lion DP, so I replaced with a Broadcom BCM4318 MiniPCI wireless card plugged into a PCI adapter which worked flawlessly in 10.6.7 and Lion DP4 but it refuses to work with 10.6.8.

The card is seen but is off, try and turn it on and it tries but times out and reverts to off again. Also, the the system is very unresponsive while it's plugged in - lots of slowdowns and spinning beach ball - but fine when removed.

*** EDIT: Seem to have fixed this now. I used the same fix that worked in Lion DP. I removed the Wi-Fi card, performed a fresh installation of 10.6.0, then ran MacOSXUpdCombo10.6.8.dmg, then replaced the Wi-Fi card. It seems that updating with the card plugged in causes problems, so the key is to perform a new installation without the card and only replace once the latest update has been applied.

After update to 10.6.8, receive [PCI configuration begin]. Repair it, by replacing AppleACPI & IOPCI kexts, from my SL 10.6.7. Just for info for anybody else, to backup before update those kexts..

I also got have a G31m-ES2L and I tried updating to 10.6.8, however, I get a kernel panic in normal boot.

The kernel panic is something like this:

(there are some more info here but I will not type it)
 
		Kernel Extensions in backtrace (with dependencies):
			org.slice.driver.FakeSMCRadeon(1.0)@0x55b8e000->0x55b92fff
			dependency: org.netkas.FakeSMC(2.7.2)@0x55b02000
			dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily(2.6.5)@0x55b02000
 
 (some more text here)

I can boot to safe mode fine.

I have an ATI Radeon 4550 which works fine with the previous versions. I've already added my device ids (ATI4600Controller.kext) and as a matter of fact, when I'm in safe mode, my resolutions are detected properly. BTW, my framebuffer is Peregrine.

I've used this FakeSMC: http://www.projectos...?showtopic=1206 (this is what I've been using ever since)

I've rebuilt cache still nogo.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Looks like the problem is specific to the XFX 5770 card. I have the same one and can't get into desktop anymore either. I've seen reports of others with that card having the same problem. Looking forward to a solution if anyone comes across one!

Weird .. I've tried rolling back AppleACPIPlatform and IOPCIFamily from 10.6.7 backup install but it didn't work so Also rolled back all the ATI kexts and it still not work.

Sure I cleared all caches, repaired permissions etc. (and removed UseKernelCache=Y from c.a.b.p.)

I get to end of boot sequence in verbose text (Which looks perfectly normal.) then it just hangs. it's not a freeze (i.e. it's gone on and booted to desktop.) cos i see 'sleep s0, s1 etc .... ' verbose messages when I press and hold power button to shut the machine down.

Bugger !

EDIT - ssh would not connect to remote host, afp and vnc neither but showed as either a bonjour computer or a connected server in finder on another mac on my LAN. I have both enabled in finder preferences. Im rolling back my clone of 10.6.7 cos I need to use that machine.

If you don't have a backup install to boot into then your best bet would be to boot into an install disk and try to remove the kexts using terminal and then copy old kexts from a USB.

for the record, updated was without issues other then AppleHDA.kext (simple fix)

Installed Combo update on the HP DC7700 and it failed, did a fresh install of 10.6.0, combo update, installed chameleon 1057, latest FakeSMC and other needed kext, created a DSDT.aml for the HP and it is working.

Yes same thing for me, it gets to the end of boot in verbose then just sits there. I can ssh into the machine so it is up and running, just no graphics.

Everything ok on my computer. Just reinstall the sound kext. The only thing new is that starting in berbose mode, it stays for a moment on PCI [CONFIGURATION BEGIN], and then continues.
