  1. 10.6.8 officially released

    Douggle uploaded them on page one. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...0539&st=19#
  2. 10.6.8 officially released

    SleepEnabler.kext requires pmVersion to be set to 23 in 10.6.8. Edit: NeoMatrix125 is correct, SleepEnabler causes a KP. Delete it to boot.
  3. As mentioned in my previous reply, check out http://dailyblogged.com. Specifically, check out this guide for the SD Card driver in 10.6.4. HDMI, however, does not work and never will work. I forget how Fn+F8 responds, though I know it doesn't work as it is supposed to.
  4. Well, what is the PCI ID?
  5. I'm surprised no one has asked this yet, as anyone with half a brain would stop and wonder, but which Atheros card you have? Without knowing which card you're using, how are we supposed to recommend a kext to get it working?
  6. Glad I could help! At the price, it's truly worth the upgrade to wireless N. Plus, along with faster speeds, the card also provides native OS X support, thus requiring no extra/modified kexts. This just brings you one step closer to a truly vanilla system (if you're going for it). Good luck with the install!
  7. http://cgi.ebay.com/BroadCom-BCM94321-BCM9...1#ht_3326wt_941 And just read any of the text immediately under "DRAFT-802.11N PRODUCT FAMILY." As for speeds, I'm not sure since I don't have an N router, but I have connected to N routers in the past.
  8. Well, I own the card, so I can confirm it support wireless n (it's no longer draft). Also, have you tried googling "BroadCom BCM94312 wireless n?"
  9. As long as you have a PCI Express Mini (Mini PCI Express) port, I suggest you go with the BroadCom BCM94312. It can be had for ~$15 on eBay and boasts native OS X support. Plus, it supports Wireless N, making it perfect for your needs. Hope this helps!
  10. [Solved]Snow Leopard upgrade woes

    Ridgeline- I've tried just about every boot flag conceivable to man and still nothing. Necroscan- I'll boot to my Leopard partition and give it a shot now. Edit: But...I thought...and if...when the...It worked!?! I can't believe it in--in fact I'm in disbelief. This whole time it was Chameleon. I truly would have never guessed. I thank you greatly for the help. May I ask how you knew?
  11. Dell Inspiron ZinoHD

    I'd like to third that as Snow Leopard on the ZinoHD would be fantastic. It'd be a Hack MiniHD (Mac Mini).
  12. [Solved]Snow Leopard upgrade woes

    This inability to upgrade is truly a pain and any and all help is welcomed. In other words, bump! :-p
  13. I'm currently running Snow Leopard 10.6 on my laptop (Insprion 1525). I am unable to upgrade to either 10.6.1 or 10.6.2. Each time I attempt to perform the upgrade, all goes well until the first restart. I select Snow Leopard from Chameleon (2 RC4) and it simply loads one line and hangs. In verbose it displays "Loaded HFS+ file: [system/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist] 479 bytes from 435ba80" and then all activity is halted and it freezes. No KP, no error, no nothing. After studying 10.6 and what is displays when booting in verbose, I believe it loads the kernel directly after this line. So it would seem it is unable to load the Kernel after an update. I can take a picture of the screen if necessary. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  14. The Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L is fairly inexpensive and has wonderful support/functionality in both Leopard and Snow Leopard. As for processors, just about any Intel Dual Core/Core 2 Duo/Quad Core will do. If you're really looking to stay cheap yet get the best bang for your buck, go with the e5200. It has fantastic overclocking headroom and is widely used in Hackintoshes. If you have any more questions, send me a PM or check out my site and I can help you there.
  15. If you are still facing the issue try out my Snow Leopard guide for the Inspiron 1525 here.
