darkcompgeek posted a topic in OSx86 10.6 (Snow Leopard)I was wondering, is it okay to install certain software through software update if you're running on 10.6.8 legacy kernel instead of a vanilla kernel? Or will it break my system? I'm running a snow leopard system on my Dell OptiPlex GX520 with 4 gigs of ram, and a 2.8 GHz Pentium 4HT Here's my software update window. install.tiff Which software is safe to install?
Because there's no better way to measure our degree of success than seeing what the numbers say. Well, maybe not: real life user experience cannot be reduced to numbers only, but surely they matter. Post here your results. Let's show our fellow Intel hackintoshers how good an AMD machine can be! This one is not mine, but from Gilles:
2,445 downloadsThis is the result of months of development in this topic: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/top...esting-on-amd/. The kernel, which i'm posting here as amd_kernel, was built by Andy Vandjick, but that wouldn't be possible without the amazing work by Sinetek (who made the first SSSE3 emulator ever, enabling non FX-series CPUs to run OSX in 64-bit kernel mode), R:A:W:x86, Bronzovka (who made Lion on AMD possible) and the Voodoo Team. Many thanks to them all! The correct boot flags to run the kernel are amd_kernel arch=x86_64. FX-series users must also add the correct busratio. The kernel is not working properly with nVidia graphics (and some ATI ones), so their users must also either add -x (safe mode) boot flag or disable GeforceGA.plugin and GLDriver.bundle in System/Library/Extensions. This kernel will also work with 64-bit Intel CPUs that are not capable of running the vanilla kernel. Good luck to all and please post feedback. The sources are also included for anyone wanting to build the kernel from the sources, or help improve it - there's still a lot of work to do.
Version 10.7.x RC 13
5,225 downloadsKernel developed by Bronzovka (on InsanelyMac he uses the nickname "bronya") which includes the newest patches by Sinetek (the opcode emulator, tool that enables SSSE3 and SSE4.2 for CPUs that otherwise won't support it) and Andy Vandjick (the built-in decrypt tool), and Bronzovka's own original patches and newest fixes, always remembering that he's the developer who first came up with a working 10.7.x kernel for AMD machines. With this kernel, you'll be able to boot with either 64-bit kernel mode (x86_64) or 32-bit kernel mode (i386), and both modes will support 64-bit applications and processes, so no more replacing the Finder or patching XPCHelper to avoid crashes like in the old days. nVidia users must stick to i386, due to a bug in the patchset that will render the system unusable in 64-bit kernel mode. ATI users can try both modes, opting for the one which gives the more reliability. Boot with arch=x86_64 (or i386) and -nossse3bit (except for FX-series CPUs) flags for the best results. There's a version FX-series-specific kernel as an option. Both will work with all versions of Lion to date. Enjoy! Many thanks to Bronzovka and all people directly and indirectly involved in this development.
