10.6.4 tested on hackintosh

My original hackintosh has now been updated to 10.6.4, and as was the case with the past few updates a new version of sleepenabler.kext was required to prevent a kernel panic during boot. The 10.6.4 sleep enabler is available from Insanelymac.

The Snow Leopard Mail application has received an update to version 4.3, showing the above dialogue when first launched. The upgrading of mail messages took only a few seconds, unfortunately it was followed by this warning.

Letterbox is a Mail plugin that adds a widescreen view with the message preview pane on the right of the window. Fortunately developer Aaron Harnly already has an update to Letterbox 0.24b7 which is compatible with 10.6.4.

    Weird problem. Following recent delivery of my new Mac Pro, OSX 10.6.2, which is the OS on the Mac installation disks, ran fine and the migration ran smoothly. However, when I tried to update to 10.6.3 and later to 10.6.4, after installing the new OS and booting up all I got was a black screen, indicating that for some reason signal wasn’t getting through to my display, a legacy 23″ Cinema Display (acrylic). When I reverted back to 10.6.2 all was well again. As you know the display has the ill-fated ADC connector. I connect to the Pro using the Dr. Bott DVIator which I have used for years without a problem (you can check out at http://www.dviator.com/us/DVIator.html . Could there be something in the OS upgrades which is causing the break in signal path to the display? Seems weird but there it is. I’ve tried calling Apple but all I get are the stock responses, posting on the Apple lists likewise. Can anyone shed any light on this? Any help appreciated as I would like to take advantage of the OS security updates, but with a black screen…
