Default 10.6.8 ... ruh roh. - 06-26-2011, 02:18 PM

I tried the .51 installer with 10.6.8 and it hosed my mini9. I re-installed 10.6.3 but now the only update available is the combined 10.6.8.

Please tell me whoever develops the netbook installer is still updating it.

fingers crossed.

Hey, just get the combo update directly from the Apple site.
http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1361

Meklort hasn't been around in nearly a year and has moved on to Lion, so I doubt you will see another NBI release from him.

the combo update for 10.6.7 worked great after the re-install. So I guess this is the end of the line for the dell mini9? no 10.6.8 ever Thanks for of the help you guys gave me in multiple threads.

Yes. It's a bad idea. At the moment there seems to be no reliable way to get 10.6.8 working on a 9 or 10v. You get stuck in a reboot loop and have to archive and install back to an older version of 10.6 to recover.

My Latitude 2100 upgraded to 10.6.8 without issue using NBI 20100616212351. I did have to reinstall the old GMA kext from NBI 0.8.3 to enable mirrored external video, but that's all.

I have just got 10.6.8 to boot ok

You need to go to kexts.com and download and install the legacy Kernel for 10.6.8

kexts.com/content/382-release-legacy-kernel-sleepenabler-10-6-8.html]Kexts.com - Release of Legacy Kernel and Sleepenabler for 10.6.8

I then had to rerun NBI 20100616212351

And basically it now boots ok

It is on the home page as this forum won't let me post a link yet
