Can I install the OS X 10.6.8 supplemental update without breaking anything or is there anything that needs to be done afterwards?

 

The description of this update says something about fixing audio issues so I guess it includes a new audio kext-file?!

hi tseug and others

can I update from 10.6.8 to Lion or is it have to be clean install if I want to have Lion?

I'm happy with Snow just asking.

I have found that my sound is broken after updating to 10.6.8; I have tried the fix described above, but it has not remedied the problem. Is anyone else suffering the same pain?

I had the very same problem. Fixed it by reinstalling AppleHDA Rollback in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] (taken from here http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2011/06/mac...68-update.html).

 

But with 10.6.8 I started having problems with waking up from sleep. It works about 4 out of 5 times I try to wake up, but sometimes the computer starts with black screen and no HDD activity and I have to hard reset computer. It might be something with sleep itself or with Nvidia driver, I have no clue. Anyone having the same problem and figured how to fix this?

 

Thanks

Hi,

I have fully working SL 10.7.4 on GA-P35-DS4.

Unfortunately one thing is not working: WOL

I'm using latest Realtek81xx driver (0.0.90) and .

"Wake for Ethernet network access" is enabled.

 

What area should I investigate: DSDT.aml or Chameleon ?

I'd like to set up SL with this guide but the links in the OP for the installer are broken... are the files still available?

anyone listening to this thread that has a copy of the GA-P35-DS4 installer that is referenced here? The link to mediafire is no longer valid.

Just out of curiosity, which version of OSX did you get working on there and which method did you use to do it?  I am soon going to try to take my GA-P35-DS4, which is running Snow Leopard possibly or maybe Mountain Lion, I can't remember now; and try to bring it up to at least Mavericks or later.  What did you end up doing?
