The memory showing as DDR2 is a cosmetic issue only, the installer uses an old boot loader that doesn't report the memory correctly. Look for the Chameleon installer that iFabio put together from the latest Chameleon sources. I'll put together a new installer when 10.6.5 comes out if Fabio doesn't do it first....was that still on your list Fabio? I'm busy these days and only check in occasionally.

For what I know your GTX285 works on 10.6.4

just use GraphicsEnabler=Yes in your /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist

 

Same for 10.6.5(10H574) and 10.6.6(10J521) :P

Fabio, does that mean everything is OK to install 10.6.5?

 

The new Chameleon installer dgobe referred to above is in the post linked below. Just install over your current one and then do a permissions repair (just in case), problem solved :)

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...t&p=1529861

The file link in that thread to the bootloader doesn't work any more.

Yep... safe (until 10H574) when it will be out,

need LAN and AUDIO "fix" always the same :)

 

for audio there is a fast way (or the dgobe fix of course)

fire up your terminal and digit:

sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x8b\x19\xd4\x11|\x9b\x98\xd4\x11|g' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleHDA

 

the system ask you for the password... digit it and your new AppleHDA(10.6.5) is now patched

credits to: aschar for the info finded on projectosx

 

for the Lan:

the same as described in the first post.

Edit the info.plist in the AppleYukon2.kext.

 

No other "problem" finded...

tks a lot Fabio.

 

I've read some people saying that 10.6.4 needs new Nvidia Drivers to get the full speed..

If yes, how do i install then? Injection?

 

Kind regards

I did a hex edit and only changed strings that matched the device ID in the *DATA* sections of the binary. I don't know if those strings would match any valid opcode sequences in the CODE/TEXT section but the perl script would change those too. Probably just paranoia on my part :rolleyes:

 

Plus you miss out on the "fun" things like seeing that the first 4 bytes of Mach-O universal binaries are:

 

CA FE BA BE

dgobe I found and try that info on projectosx (works like a charm for me...)

 

PS Enjoy the 10.6.5.... is out!

Oh right, absolutely the perl script does work fine. I was just pointing out that doing a global search and replace for 8B19D411 would also replace that string in the TEXT segment of the binary if it were present, but it's not. This would change the CODE that gets executed as opposed to patching a device ID in the DATA segment...like I said maybe I was being a bit too cautious.

I love their detailed line items in the release notes...like this one:

 

Improves reliability of Ethernet connections. :D

@ dgobe

 

I have no time to build "the Asus X58 installer" for now...

If the file I post you today works well... I send you the rest of the missed config...(920 to 980x & internal or external SATA)

 

Let me know.

Hi,

 

I'm using a asus p6t deluxe V2, and everything is workng (10,6,2).

Recently i bought 2 WD 1 To and i'd like to install Snow (10,6,2 or later) on those 2 HDD but in Raid 1 mode (Hardware first or software if hardware is not possible at all)

Do you think it's possible? and if yes how?

 

I will wait a bit for upgrading to 10,6,5... just in case...

 

Best regards and thank you for your help.

I've done a little research, found that not many USB blue tooth support OS 10.6

Any suggestion ?

Try D-link DBT-120 for one, there are others out there as well..

From the website, MacOSX isn't in the supported OSes list, but I've this dongle for my Magic Mouse and it just works.

http://english.hamletcom.com/products/xbtus20bw.aspx

I had also had a Belkin dongle and it worked too.

Many companies don't list MacOSX, but it supports them, I think.

 

By the way...10.6.5 done, no problems at all.
