I just changed my refresh rate from 60 Hertz to 59.9 and the Pink Launchpad is now gone! Seems like it's the only thing that is cured of the Pink syndrome so far though. Still Messages is pink .. iMovies display looks like garbled bunch of graphic junk..
The option to change my refresh rate is greyed out in Display prefs.
Ok well I actually got it fixed. Looking further into the kexts, I found that when my network card was detected, IONetworkingFamily version 2.1 was loaded, and when it didn't work, I had version 2.0 loaded. So what I did was grab the RTL81XXX kext from inside the plugin folder of IONetworkingFamily version 2.0 and dropped it in the plugin folder for version 2.1, rebuilt cache, dumped the E/E folder completely, and rebooted. Finally got it to load with the kernel cache.
Now I only have one more question/issue. At boot, I get a hang of about 30-45 seconds at this point:
BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 No such file or directory
BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCaches/PreheatedUser/Merged.playlist: 2 No such file or directory
I don't know what the problem is there. It just hangs there and then proceeds to boot as usual. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
Ya I really don't know why I can't boot with the kernel cache… I was thinking it relies on another kext or something that wasn't loading but I can't trace it back to anything specific. Still can't get it worked out. ...so here's the crazy part: I just checked, and the lnx2mac kext is actually loaded, I just can't connect to the internet. What the hell could be the cause of that?!
