Anybody know the solution where you don't have to turn off one of your cores (cpus=1) every time you boot your computer or you'll get a jumpy and giggly screen. On Leopard there was a nice, simple and easy solution, unfortunately it doesn't work on Snow Leopard. I've been dealing with this issue for about 2 years now actually since I updated to Snow Leopard.

 

One more issue not that important but I though I would throw it out there just incase. It's sound I have sound but no control to change the volume so if anyone had solution for that will be appreciated

 

 

 

 

 

Acer Aspire 5601 AWLMi

Intel Core Duo processor T2050

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950

 

I believe my audio is 883

 

 

 

 

P.S. You where probably asking yourself why Snow Leopard after seeing what processor I have I'm sure you realized that unfortunately I can't upgrade to Lion or Mountain Lion and much less Maverics with that processor

Hello

You need apply lapic patch in kernel.

*Download this: http://www.osx86.net...el-patcher-v07/

*Boot with cpus=1 and apply patch.

*Restart and done, isn't necessary boot with cpus=1 anymore

Hello

 

Realy? Man this worked for many people....

 

Maybe have something wrong in your installation....

 

What method you use to install SL? Is it distro or retail?

You can also try Chameleon's kernel patcher module. It includes the lapic fix.

http://forge.voodoop...s/KernelPatcher

Using the module is a better solution than binpatching the kernel, it's always better to leave system files untouched if possible - if Apple updates them you'll lose your modifications.

 

(Yes, I know you won't be updating... :) but anyway)

I installed SL via iATKOS S3 V2 which is 10.6.3 then used Software Update to update to 10.6.8 which is what I am running right now.

 

 

Gringo, thanks for your post but I'm not sure how to use your method, can you please give me some instructions, it would be greatly appreciated.

Just place the kernel patcher module in /Extra/Modules. You don't have to do anything else.

 

....updating Chameleon might be a good idea...

Hello

 

Everything are explained now... you're using distro and distro is waste time. Use retail

 

To install OSX try: SL retail+nawcom modCd

 

After install update for 10.6.8 via combo update(donwload from Apple website)and install that patch i gave to you to patch lapic kernel.
