This update should be fine for vanilla systems using boot-dfe without having to use the netkas method (modifying the startup scripts to add dsmos) because dsmos should already be in your Extra/Extensions folder. I'm trying this update now, will update if successful.

Any word on it working with Kalyway and/or JaS builds? This thing *SHOULD* be safe for all vanilla I'd imagine. I need to go home and plug this laptop in to Time Machine before I give it a spin. Though I figure with a Dual Core Intel CPU, GMAX3100 GFX, etc. it should be a walk in the park for us Inspiron owners.


Your thoughts?

If you have the same setup as me: Kalyway 10.5.2 + 10.5.3 Mysticus + 10.5.4 Mysticus


Thank god I have a test partition for such updates! :)


I recommend everyone to do the same.

1 test partition and 1 "production" partition. That way you'll always be safe!
