Is this update safe to do through software update, i'm already on 10.6.4 so i dont need the combo.

 

Thats the million dollar question I guess. Maybe I'll backup my 10.6.4 volume and make a go of it - I got a few spare cycles to burn this afternoon...

Same here, updated through Software Update, to all I say: do it on your own risk.

I don't use sleep enabler because it works native here.

Is this the right SleepEnabler.kext? (pmVersion=21??)

http://www.kexts.com/view/409-sleepenabler...for_10.6.4.html

 

Heres what i did..

1. Removed SleepEnabler.kext from EXTRAS

2. Ran Kext Utility

3. Installed Update through Software Update

4. Restart

Everything went fine, I removed SleepEnabler.kext due to fear of KP.

 

Can you give link for SleepEnabler.kext pmVersion=21

 10.6.5 updated just fine with Software Update.

 

I had to reinstall AppleHDA.kext from 10.6.3 because it broke my audio (ALC888)

Get this version (from here or the link floordance posted), it works on all 10.6.x systems, but needs a kernel boot flag to be specified - that's the pmVersion. When updating you can disable the extension to avoid KP by setting pmVersion=0 at boot time, after that edit your com.apple.Boot.plist and add pmVersion=21 (for 10.6.5, etc.) under "Kernel Flags".

 

An explaination of this flag can be found in the comments in the link above.

Deleted sleepenabler.kext on my amd machine with a quad core athlon 2 xfx 8300 board and nvidia 8800 graphics installed the update via software update and restarted. No usbs, apart from that it booted without any flags or anything at all! Perfect, still patched with marvin utility so no need to do it again. installed 10.6.2-IOUSBFamilyInstaller and usb's back on and everything working as it should again! This is great news! Only thing I need now is sleepenabler. Good luck guys!

Same here, with System Update and Combo :D

 

Hello all,

 

I am new to this world and I am going to need your help here. I just installed 10.6.5 and see below, kernel panic. Please help...

 

You will need to remove SleepEnabler.

 

I am back up and running!! Thank you so much!

 

Can I ask what sleep enabler does?

 

Basically what it says, enable Sleep :blink:, check this thread for a link to the Kext's web and an longer explanation there on how to get it working on 10.6.5
