Okay, I realize that some people are really new to this. Some people only remember hearing a friend talk about deadmoo once and are wondering whether it is referencing the death of a cow. However, the forum is here for a reason! Everything talks about JaS or Uphuck these days. Why try to make pre 10.4.8 work? Especially deadmoo! Please correct me if I'm wrong, but there isn't any detriment to upgrading. At most the time spent replacing old kexts that might be necessary for continued functionality will be negated by the benefit of speed improvements, making it beneficial in the long run use of the machine. Don't dd, install. As a community we have worked pretty hard to make everything as easy as possible for the user, and yet some people are beating their head against the wall with these installs. I realize that I write this with a 10.4.9 machine instead of 10.4.10. However, I can't see a reason to update yet. Benefits are minor for my machine configuration and it sounds like people have issues with this install such as the system taking a modified AppleHDA as requisite for requesting the audio update. Minor annoyances, equally minor benefits. But, that is an entirely different ball of wax than pre-.8

 

Please, save everybody headaches. Research and update. And don't, at all, use deadmoo. I'm not agravated by the users who don't know the difference, simply the situation and the irony of trying to push that chain.

 

And that's the way the cookie crumbles,

re: "Research and update. And don't, at all, use deadmoo."I agree, but you must remove references to deadmoo in the guides & the wiki.(example)1.8 Q: I have an SSE3 CPU. I am using the Deadmoo image, but I can't get PowerPC applications to run. http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Technical_FAQ—The wiki should say: DON'T USE THE DEADMOO IMAGE.

Very true. However, the wiki is now locked for editing. I sent a message to Sabr and I got no reply. I think it could still serve a purpose, however its uneditable presence on the web does us more harm than help.
