Slow CPU after ComboUpdate (10.6.8)


5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have installed 10.6.3 SL on my laptop, and i'm trying to update to 10.6.8, i have the combo update from apple webpage.

I've done it before and it works well with the exception of the usb, installing comboupdate, and when it finish, before restarting, i repair permissions with kext wizard, and, as i said, the last time worked fine.


The problem now is that the cpu turns to be very slow, and it freeze when loading everything (specially systempreferences or finder).

I think i have extra kexts that i don't neede and causes it, or maybe i need an extra kext that i have no installed yet...


In the attachment i've put extra folder, with the kexts and dsdt, and a darwindumper report, i'm using chameleon RC5, maybe i should update to a newest version or maybe to chimera (last time i was working with chimera, but now i have try after updating and continues freezing).


Any idea about it or how to solve will be very helpful.


Last question: ¿can i make a "restore point" as in windows, so if i update and it doesn't works, return or downgrade to the previous version i have in my laptop?

I forgot to say that i think i don't really need to reinstal any kext after the update, all works from the dsdt, but altough i only have only the dsdt (without the kexts i have now) it freezes so i think i need another kext, and remove some of the ones that i have now.


I've posted an attachment with my extra folder, with all i have there, if you could check it and tell me what kext doesn't fit my settings.. (also posted darwindumper report, for better support)

Problem find: i hadn't any smbios.plist and org.chameleon.boot.plist (i was sure i have, but i was wrong) that mades cpu not being recognized by the Os and maybe is the problem.


Now i only have to create that plists and hope all works
