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.


Have you tried a different framebuffer?
"Hoolock", 3 maybe .. had to put my machine back to 10.6.7 for now and forgot to try!

EDIT - does your machine normally sleep when you press the power button? if so do you see onscreen verbose message relating to sleep if you press power button when gfx has hung?

Just rolled back to the ATI kexts from 10.6.7 and XFX 5770 works fine again.

I just upgraded after sleep worked in 10.6.7 :C.

Well, everything works, just gotta wait for 10.6.8's sleepenabler.

Just did the update to 10.6.8. But absolutely backed up first with Carbon Copy Cloner. Update went fine through software update. Sounds works, graphics good. Seems a little faster...

My hardware configs can be found in my signature if you want to see if it will work on similar HW. Using kakewalk W/Chameleon

Ran combo updater, rebooted, it seemed to hang on PCI Configuration Begin.
But the HDD led kept flashing, it was booting anyway, except nothing happened on the screen.
I was able to restart blind using the keyboard.

Booted into my 10.6.3 install DVD partition, replaced the IOPCIFamily and AppleACPIPlatform kexts with ones from 10.6.7, fixed permissions. Booted fine this time, but I lost hardware accelerated graphics!

Installed the latest nvidia quadro drivers...

...rebooted, got hardware acceleration back.

Obviously AppleHDA + controller.kext need to be repatched as well.
/EDIT Arrrrghh, the Perl script that patches AppleHDA for AD2000B no longer works!! I opened up AppleHDA in a hex editor and the numbers that I'm supposed to patch are no longer there. At least AppleHDA from 10.6.7 still works.

Hopefully someone can figure out this new PCI Configuration Begin/ACPI stuff in 10.6.8.
I saw some reports from people being able to boot by typing DSDT=no...very strange, unfortunately I forgot to try that before replacing kexts.

I still have my 4 P-states but I don't see any CSTInfo in IORegistryExplorer anymore and ioreg -lw0 | grep CSTInfo returns nothing.

Asus P5Q-E (ICH10R/P45) C2D E8500, Geforce GTX 460. MacPro3,1 model identifier, retail install, latest Chameleon.

Could you upload the 10.6.7 IOPCIFamily and AppleACPIPlatform kexts? It would probably benefit a lot of people.

If you have sound working in LION use the SAME technique for SNOW.

I also appear to be missing CST -- Core i5 750 / Asus P7P55D (everything else works fine, no mods needed)

Anyone noticed this new Thunderbolt device in the System Profiler? (see attachment)

works for me.. P5k-vm


Hey. I have the same m0b0, but I cannot fix the sound and the "orange harddrive" after update. I replaced the AppleHDA.kext in S/L/E with the one patched in 10.6.7, but no success, I patched the original one that always worked before, but no success.

I replaced the AHCIPortInjector.kext in /E/E, but also no success.

If you get the sound working, can you let me know how?

Thank you in advance.

I am n00b in dsdt and I cannot understand that klingon language.
