I installed my first copy of OSX (kalway, OSx.5.2), and I have gotten everything working but 2 things- Wireless and sleeping. I am getting a new Wifi card that's compatible with OSX, but I want to be able to put my laptop in sleep mode, and I don't know how to boot into a kernel that supports it. I'm pretty sure I installed all kernels when I got OSX on my laptop, but I can't figure out how to use any of them, I tried typing "Kabylkernel" and "sleeplernel" after hitting f8 at boot, but nothing happened... How do I change my kernel and make it stay at that kernel for all future boots???

FFS... I am so {censored} sick of noobs clogging up the forums with their stupid {censored} questions... It delays the real people with real problems from finding their answers...

 

The answers are there, do a {censored} search and read the {censored} manual!

Yes you are. Changing kernels and installing new kernels is covered in more threads than I can count. If you can't perform a simple google search you should give up on trying to install an OS that is gonna require you to do things a lot more complex than a simple kernel change. Here, I'll get you started... most of us aren't bad people, we just get sick of anwsering questions that have been anwsered a million freakin' times:

Do you think I never tried this one??

I already did, and it wouldn't change my kernel... I only had 1 kernel to try it with though... Where do I find another kernel, my Install disk?

 

And yes I did do a proper google search, which is how I came across the post you linked to, I'm not a dumbass and I know how to install an OS.

Okay, let's take it from the top.

 

The Kernel is located on the root directory of your Mac OS X install.

The Kernel file is called "mach_kernel"

 

The easiest way of switching kernels to me is by hand. Make system files visible with TinkerTool or some other utility and replace the current kkernel with the one you want to use. It's as simple as that. Or you can try ~pcwiz's kernel installer. Google it, because I don't have a link hand. It should be a script made by an Insanelymac member.

 

EDIT: Sorry, just followed the link. Follow my instructions on kernel changing.

Ok, I understand how to do it now, but where do I find the alternate kernel files???
