  1. I downloaded the latest version rev 13 of Mplayer osx extended, only to find out it crashes whenever you open it. I'm not sure if this is a problem with iatkos, or if it's actually a problem with actual Leopard.
  2. What is the /E/E folder? Is that the extensions folder? I have the custom kexts: AppleACPIPPS2Nub ApplePS2Controller EvOreboot fakesmc IOATAFamily LegacyAppleAHCIPort LegacyAppleIntelPIIXATA LegacyIOAHCIBlockStorage LegacyJMicronATA NullCPUPowerManagement NVInject PlatformUUID
  3. I installed 10.6.2 using a flash drive on my PC, and everything on the first boot after install seemed to be going well, except my resolution was locked at 1024x768, but I said to myself I'm going to fix that later. On the second boot, I get the "AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement" stuff, so I delete the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement kext from the system library. Then on the third boot, the apple intel cpu stuff is gone, only to be replaced by a "Still waiting for root device" in infinite loop, as if it's not recognizing my harddrive. I can boot into -x safe mode with no problems, and if I force a rebuild with -f, I can boot into OS X as well. However, using -f has its share of problems. For example, whenever I click "About this Mac" when I boot with -f, a black screen appears for a few seconds, then everything (literally) crashes and I'm brought back to desktop. And productivity in safe mode is basically gone. I googled for some answers and saw stuff like "Enable IDE in legacy mode" but I don't seem to have that option in my BIOS. I also found something about repairing permissions, so I repaired permissions in Disk Utility, but that didn't seem to help either. Any advice?
