Still have to add p/c states+test cpu perfomance temps// newer version when finish testing will be uploaded
///////old post removed.///////
///adding this image temporaly for testing
Hi there man, thanks a lot for the help!
Hmm, I am running Leopard 10.5 at the moment and preparing for a 10.6 upgrade.
I had to modify your dsl file because I have a E6600 processor, but I had never edited/fixed a dsdt file before, so I was a little lost. I changed the first parts of it which relate to the processor, and compared the two files with a diff program and I realized there were more diferences, namely some memory address, so I copied the memory address from my dsdt with my cpu values to yours, and it worked all right, but no usb built-in, only sleep halt and restart issues fixed.
There is two question I want to ask you:
Which kexts are you using right now ?
And, how/where can I learn to fix dsdt deeply, if you can point me to a good material(I googled a bit and found lots of specifics mods to specifcs mobos but no real learning).
I attached my files generated by DSDT_Patcher1.0.1e if you can give me a help, I promise to create a tutorial to install snow from scratch to help the community!
