  1. eoinzy, Can you please post your IOATAFamily.kext from your working installation here? I've tried the kext from the link you have in your post and I continue to get the "Still waiting on root device" error. Thanks in advance, Cuong
  2. Broadcom bcm43xx wireless driver [beta]

    FINALLY WORKING 4312 and SL 10.6.4! Here's my setup: Dell Latitude D620 with Intel Graphics Replaced Intel Wifi card with Broadcom pci14e4,4312 Wifi card (equivalent Dell DW1490) Installed using boot CD D620SLV1.iso and vanilla 10.6.3 retail Snow Leopard Everything successfully installed and rebooted to the standard Welcome movie. Installed Chameleon-2.0-RC3-r658-bin from the D620SLV1.iso CD using command line prompts from this to tutorial: http://lifehacker.com/5351485/how-to-build...start-to-finish From the tutorial, use the terminal window and you'll use the commands: diskutil list cd /Users/username/Desktop/Chameleon-2.0-RC3-r658-bin/i386/ sudo fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk0 (You'll need to change the rdisk to suit your setup. Follow the tutorial.) sudo dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s2 (Again, you need to change the rdisk to suit your setup. Follow the tutorial.) Reboot. Everything seems to be working - audio, graphics, wifi, USB. I didn't test wired ethernet, speaker jacks, serial, VGA. Carbon Copied Clone'd everything. Then my troubles began. I installed the MacOSXUpdCombo10.6.4.dmg update and rebooted. Everything worked except wifi. I was given the error something like "No Airport Installed" in the top bar. I then stumbled upon this thread. I did the following in this order and now have wifi working again. bcm43xx_enabler_0.5.3.sh.zip (by itself, it didn't fix the wifi) Went into System Preferences->Network. Removed all adapters in the left hand pane. Pulled my 10.6.3 IO80211Family.kext and IONetworkingFamily.kext from my CCC image. (Assume they are the same ones from the SL DVD) Using Kext Helper b7, installed those two kexts. Opened Utilities->Disk Utility and repaired the permissions of my Mac OS partition. Rebooted and Wifi worked again. I'm going to CCC again and try the 10.6.5 upgrade. Hope this helps someone, Cuong EDIT: The error is "No Airport card installed". After the 10.6.5 update, the BCM 4312 stopped working again. I repeated the steps to reinstall the 10.6.3 kexts and repaired permissions and Wifi works again on 10.6.5. EDIT2: Uploaded the kext files. I really think the IONetworkingFamily.kext is the only one that needs updating. EDIT3: Both kext files are needed. Install them both. BTW, I'm unable to get the GMA950 kexts to give me CI/QE. I've tried all the assembled packs with 10.6.3 and I can't get it working. All the assembled packs say to use 10.6.0. Has anyone gotten the D620 to have CI/QE on 10.6.5? PM me please. IONetworkingFamily.kext.zip IO80211Family.kext.zip
  3. OP, thanks for tip. I have an HP NC8230 (NC 8230) with ATI x600 64 MB. While running in 1024 x 768 resolution prior to any directions above, Preview, Slingbox, and Path Finder work. Followed the instructions to a tee. The screen looks beautiful in 1680 x 1050 resolution. I too am experiencing the rendering problems in iDVD, Preview, Slingbox, Path Finder, VLC, etc. The screen just doesn't render the video/graphics properly. If anyone has an update, I'd love to hear it.
