Myzar 10.4.6 Update - Slow Boot Times

Greetings folks,

 

Thanks Myzar for the work on getting the 10.4.6 update out. I found that Update 1 works for me, Update 2 broke Rosetta, and Update 3 I am still to try.

 

The only problem is that ever since I went to 10.4.6 V1, the system takes a long time to boot. (Also the Loginwindow Problem where it asks for password, I guess that has not been fixed yet.)

 

When I boot in verbose mode, I see that it loads everything fast until it detects the display. Then it just waits for like 30 - 40 seconds, and then starts up the rest. This never happened on the 10.4.5 system. My total boot time on the 10.4.5 system was close to 18 seconds. Now its close to a minute.

 

Here is the dmesg:

After it loads, everything is perfect. Performance is fast etc etc.

 

Can anyone help me figure out why this is happening.

 

Thanks, any help is appreciated.

Guys,

 

I updated the kextcache thing. It still does not solve the problem. I cant seem to fix the waiting issue. It says kextd.parent timeout IOKitwait or something like that. I know its not important to you guys but can anyone take a guess why this is happenin.

 

Thanks

I just updated to 10.4.5 using the Maxxuss method on top of an existing 10.4.4 install DVD, and I am experiencing exactly the same problems.

 

it pauses at the same place and Autologin no longer works... other than that all is great.

 

Any ideas?

Okay, after disabling my x1600 in BIOS and reverting back to the GMA950, the computer booted in about 18 seconds... maybe something to do with the ATIRadeonX1000.kext. I'm still using the version I modified from 10.4.4...

i've deleted the HWsensor but still hangs there.. Cant seem to find TPMACPI anywhere in the Extensions folder though.

 

Currently running 10.4.6 from the Goatsecx release. (Not so sure whether it is from Jas or Myzar etc.) Got it from the bay.

 

Any other solutions to this minor annoyance?

I've got the same problem.

 

It's the modified ATI driver.

But I don't know how to fix it.

 

tried all trics i could find. nothing works

 

it reminds me on the win98 times when hanging 30 seconds on boot when there was no static ip adress on tcp/ip.

 

maybe the patched driver conflicts with the network driver???

 

ps: sorry for bad english... i'm german

HEY I GOT IT!

 

This one worked for me:

 

1. delete /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHWSensor.kext

2. delete /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache and Extensions.mkext

 

3. goto terminal an type:

 

sudo -s

kextcache -e -z -a i386

kextcache -a i386 -z -k /System/Library/Extensions

 

Now OS 10.4.6 with sec 03.2006 boots up in less than 15 seconds :D

 

good luck

hi there,

 

where can I find the update i.e. 10.4.6, I downloaded one but while installing when i did "About Installer" It showed 10.4.4, I am presently using 10.4.5 without any problems, shall i try to upgrade via apple upgrade i.e. software upgrade ?

 

regards to all

Guys, I updated to the security update 003 and it seems to have solved my problem. 10.4.6 Sec Update 3. boots under 15 seconds. Now I am going to up the RAM to 2 GB, and go to a 3.4 GHz Dual Core...

If you get a kernelpanic after the tip from bliss:

 

just boot into safe mode (-x at the command prompt) and then again

 

2. delete /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache and Extensions.mkext

 

After that, don't do a kextcache, just reboot. OSX will rebuild the cache itself.
