i have successfully installed leo4all 10.5.2 with vanilla 9.2.2 kernal. Everything works good, except on board wi-fi, which is ok, I have a USB wi-fi card, Linksys. And the RaLink installer works like a charm.


Also sleep does not work very well...Video gets grainy upon reawakening.




looking to upgrade to 10.5.6 anyone have any suggestions??


I tried Kalyway 10.5.2 but Quartz Extreme did not work, neither did Time Machine. And I think some other things. I tried updating with Kalyway Combo Update 10.5.3 and it did not boot.


I have tried iDeneb 1.4, XxX 10.5.6, iAtkos 5, XxX 10.5.5, BrazilMac, Uphuck, etc. etc. etc.


I tried all these different installers with numerous different combinations of kexts and nothing got my system usable.


iDeneb I can actually get working, except all the applications crash when I open them.


All the rest seem to be missing a kext or something, the video shows me only half of my desktop, and it is grainy.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.



these are my specs....if i missed anything you need to know, let me know
