  1. After update, you need to rollback the following (see below) from 10.6.7 version. S/L/E/AppleACPIPLatform.kext S/L/E/IOPCIFamily.kext GL/HF! JS
  2. 1. Make sure your WIRED ethernet is working (use additional kext as needed). 2. Make sure it is detected as built-in. If not add EthernetBuiltIn=Yes 3. Make sure WIRED ethernet is detected en0 (the first ethernet network device) I noticed many people do NOT check #3. In Terminal window, type "ifconfig" without quotes to check. If WIRED ethernet is not en0, do the following: deleted /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist deleted all interfaces in System Preferences > Network reboot re-add ethernet first so that it will be en0 GL/HF

    Radeon HD 4870 1 GB (Sapphire brand) works with Graphics Enabler.
  5. Dual Display with ATI 4870?

    I have a Sapphire Radeon 4870 1 GB dual DVI and it is working fine in 10.6.2 vanilla SL. Using Chameleon and PC EFI (EnableGraphics=yes), it auto detects the card. Here is the SS from Graphics / Displays: JS

  7. Dell Vostro 420 desktop

    Matt Can you elaborate on which distro or vanilla SL did you install? Also, links to posts that you use / read for the installation. Thanks in advance. JS
