I failed a couple of weeks ago to update from 10.6.7 to 10.6.8 but I'm willing to give it another go.
First off any chance of a link to the exact file of nawcoms kernel package installer and the sleep kext that you used.
The package I looked at already had the sleep in the package.
also when you edit the nbi plist is it a , or a . in macBook 4,1 (4.1) ?

I downloaded the files from www osx86 net/view/1413-nawcoms_legacy_kernel_and_sleepenabler_for_10.6.r. html

It is a comma in the plist string: "MacBook 4,1".

That editing "Inspiron 1011" to "MacBook4,1" was the magic I needed to get sound working again. Thanks Nomad2k4.

Nomad2k4, thanks for the great description! I went straight to 10.6.8 from 10.6.0 clean install on a 10v.

Everything works but bluetooth. When my friend sent me his mini a couple of weeks ago it was on 10.6.6 and there was no bluetooth system preference. Didnt have it after 10.6.0 either.

I have bluetooth enabled in the bios and see in the system console a message that blued is starting.

Any ideas?

A bios entry doesn't mean the hardware is actually there. You'll have to disassemble to double check.

Thanks! silly noob me, thought it would only be in bios if the hardware was there.

Um... You really mean disassemble? Not sure how to go about that. But any ideas why the blued would start if no hardware?

Thanks for any direction!

The Bluetooth module on the 10V sits under the palm rest.

Hi all,

I've done a stupid thing, and managed to give mach_kernel the wrong name whilst playing with files to update from as 10.6.7 to 10.6.8 on my dell mini 10v, not I can't boot OSX. stupid thing to have done, and I fully deserve to have to start from scratch for it, but if there is a way to fix it I'm all ears. basically, all I need to do is rename mach_kernal to mach_kernel in the root folder, but i cannot for the life of me find a way to do it. I can see the file in ubuntu (which is how i discovered my stupid stupid error) but i can't get root access for that folder without booting into OSX.

does anyone have any idea as to whether I can fix this or not?
