    Custom kernel.
    Or just use the 10.0/10.1 kernel and seatbelt.kext

    Hmm. Well, damn.

    I literally just kicked off a time machine backup of my SL install with the intent of storing it away and rolling back to Leopard. I may still do that, but now I have something more to think about :)

    Yeah, looks like others are reporting the same thing. Don't update to 10.6.2 if you want your Mac OS to work.

    Rory: Your want to give up OS X for Windows!?

    Well supposedly you can use the 10.0.0 kernel just fine, just rename it prior to install 10.6.2 and follow the instructions on netkas about the new .kext's then when you reboot just enter the kernel name on the boot prompt that you rename ie. atom_kernel.....from what I've read.

    Sleep is nice and easy but I would not trade sleep mode for viruses, malware, spyware, worms, crashes, and the list goes on. Windows 7 is a nice looking OS but then again it is Microsoft...

    Never had a virus on any computer I have had. Crashes; KP's. The rest, get Avira free haha.
    SL is better imo, but I do kinda want the ease of sleep, rather than over 2 minute boot up times (due to stupid zif hdd :( )

    I just used the new sleepenabler due to it being patched for 10.6.2. I actually haven't tried sleep yet cause honestly I never use it so never really cared. I'll mess with it later and see if it does or not.

    This is really great news. pkmvancouver, if you don't mind, can you describe exactly how, or shall I say the technique you used to upgrade to 10.6.2 I did look at the links you posed and downloaded the kernel and I am manually downloading the update but did you patch the kernel before the installing the update and how did you patch it? Please share.

    The kernel link is already patched from the link. I renamed it from mach_kernel to mach_kernel_p.
    Moved the old Sleepenabler from /Extra and downloaded and put the patched SleepEnabler for 10.6.2 in /Extra.
    my original 10.6 install was with netbookinstaller so there is a update.app thing in the /Extra directory.
    I ran that update.app to update the Extensions.mkext

    Never touched the /S/L/E directory, installed 10.6.2 update via software update. Let it install and reboot
    Upon reboot at the chameleon prompt I booted with mach_kernel_p arch=i386 -v

    upon reboot I removed the AppleHDA and the AppleIntelCPU management .kexts. Never touch the IntelGMA drivers cause I have them in the Extra directory. Then rebooted and everything works. ;)
