I'm at the same point as you. I've tried installing the 10.5.6 seatbelt.kext many different ways. Via OSX86 Tools, manually, through kext helper. None of them work. Booted with -v -f, without it. Nothing is working.

Thanks it sure did the trick for my computer.

 

I have the GA EP45-DS3 mobo the q6600 cpu and two 7300gs pcie videocards. I run retail Leo 10.5.6 and updated to the mach_kernel, the seatbelt and system.kext from the 10.5.6 combo update. Seems it did the trick, everything works ok now (in fact it feels like the computer works better than ever before).

 

Download the comboupdate you want/need and pacifist + osxtools. Burn the combo dmg to a DVD and extract the stuff you need (no need to mount an image = no KP) using pacifist. Pacifist can also install the kexts if you want it to and osxtools can install the kernel.

 

Allways backup your stuff before changing anything.

Does this fix issues with mounting EXTERNAL dmg files (eg usb hard drives)? Sorry I'm a newbie but I thought that my retail hackintosh would have been patched with the latest updates by the Apple Updater when I run it a few days ago.

I have kernel version 9.4 (iPC10.5.6), got kernel panic whenever mounting dmgs downloaded from safari or any other internet browser so I've installed Igetter and integrated it to safari, dmgs work just so fine. Idon't know why but it works.

When ever I do this tut, it says No Such Directory Found. 9.5 Kernel on iAtkos 5i 10.5.7

 

 

At what point do you get that error?

Step 2.

 

If you are sudo and you do not close the Terminal window typing:

mkdir /backup/Seatbelt

should not give that error.

 

Try the commands again in a fresh window and then take a screenshot and post it. Command+Shift 3 will take a screenshot

Where did you get a voodoo 9.6.0 kernel? I just upgraded to 10.5.7 also and am using voodoo 9.5.0 kernel.

There is no Voodoo 9.6.0 kernel however there are some 9.6.0 kernels based on the Voodoo source code. Do a search on the forum and you should find several references to these builds. For updates and information from the Voodoo Team visit http://code.google.com/p/xnu-dev/

I updated to 10.5.7 and had disk mounting problems. Since my Voodoo Kernel is the 9.5, I used the one from 10.5.5 version. I installed it with Kext Helper b7, rebooted and worked with no problems. I downloaded it using Firefox just like I do everytime I deal with Kexts. Safari now does all kind of stuff to mess with your downloaded kexts...

I'm running iDeneb 10.5.6 on an acer laptop. I have my hdd partitioned to OSX Extended (journaled) / NTFS.

 

When i run uname -a it says i have kernel 9.2.0. What do I do in this case, as I only see solutions for 9.5.0/9.6.0

 

also, why would a fresh install of 10.5.6 install 9.2.0 kernel? Thanx in advance for any advice.

Hello,

 

I said exactly what you said. I also was installed Seatbelt in the first place. However i can open Adium, Firefox, Gimmesometune, etc. But can't open Last.fm, iscrobbler and other smaller stuff. I guess this is about the size of the DMGs but i'm not sure.

 

Can you help me about it?

Hey everyone, I've got something peculiar here...

 

my uname -a shows:

Darwin users-macbook-pro.local 9.7.0 Darwin Kernel Version 9.7.0: Tue Mar 31 22:52:17 PDT 2009; root:xnu-1228.12.14~1/RELEASE_I386 i386

 

So, I have kernel 9.7.0, but I don't see any seatbelt.kext for kernel 9.7.0. I've googled all over the place! I've also tried seatbelt.kext from 9.5.0 and 9.6.0 with no avail.

I don't even know how I was updated to the 9.7.0 kernel. I started off with 9.5.0. Anyway, can someone point me to some instructions for the 9.7.0 fix? or if I should downgrade, which should I downgrade to (and how, if possible!!).

 

I'm using a Dell XPS M1330 (T9300, Dell N, 8400m gs). iAtkos 5i -> 10.5.7 combo update.

Thanks everyone. Very big help

 

*The error I get when I mount dmg's is the screen where it says "You need to restart your computer" with the backdrop graying the rest of the screen.

 

 

*I've also tried the seatbelt.kext version 107.12. same problem... :(

 

***I reapplied 10.5.7 and mounting seems fine with 9.7.0. I've uploaded my seatbelt.kext 107.12 that works ( seems to be the same as the older one, but might not be ).

 

**Now, I've also tried Voodoo's 9.7.0 and it doesn't work. As of now, I'm on the 9.5.0 kernel, mounting my dmg just fine. Any help on 9.7.0 installation would be great.

*Attached are my seatbelt.kext and system.kext (obviously NOT working for my setup).

Hello all,

 

I'm having the same problem, can't mount .dgm files.

 

I have kernel 9.6 using Ideneb 10.5.6.

I already installed the new Seatbelt for kernel 9.6 but when I try to mount dmg files, it locks leopard and it shows a restart warning. All I can do from here is to restart...

After restart, I try to mount dmg files, but it shows again the restar page... and locks the entire PC...

 

Any help please... I cand install new software...

 

Thanks...
