Maybe IOACPIFamily.kext and OSvKernDSPLib.kext come from a previous combo update? I'm downloading 10.4.8, 10.4.6, and 10.4.5 to dig around in. (10.4.4 and prior were PPC-only as far as I can tell)

well shit... nothing in either of those three updates. -ProfessaFresh 15:02, 20 February 2008 (CET)

That was to be foreseen: a combo updates makes the update from a base version (10.4.0)... so a 10.4.9 combo has everything from 10.4.0 onwards. --Tego 20:28, 20 February 2008 (CET)

There is a version of IOACPIFamily.kext on the Darwin ISO. Will that work? [Exidor]

I'm guessing that the errors below shouldn't happen?

Changing Patchstick-root to Apple TV Mode...
gpt show: unable to open device '/dev/disk2s1': No such file or directory
gpt show: unable to open device '/dev/disk2s1': No such file or directory
Unmount of all volumes on disk2s1 was successful

Unmount of all volumes on disk2s1 was successful

And I did try with the USB mounted AND unmounted to see if it made a difference. --Magu 23:37, 21 February 2008 (CET)

Turns out you SHOULDN'T use /dev/diskXsY. I was referring to the partition instead of the whole disk. Honest mistake. --Magu 23:53, 21 February 2008 (CET)

Question about steps 3&4. The instructions say to place the items from the install disk in a temporary folder 'somewhere'. Does this temp folder need to be in the directory where I unzipped the or can it be a temp folder on my desktop? I've done steps 1-6, but it seems like all of the files I saved in a temp folder on my desktop should be in a different location. Thanks--Cgates30 09:25, 22 February 2008 (CET)

Has anyone tried this on a PPC Mac? I have a PowerBook G4 running Leopard and also have an Intel 10.4 install disc (from an old roommate). I will attempt it later today unless anyone can confirm it won't work. Seems like if all the files are coming from the Intel disc it shouldn't be a problem.

FYI, I just successfully followed these instructions using my intel iMac with Leopard and my Tiger install disc. However, I did see quite a few script errors. Including one which is an oversight in the directions: the ssh install script wants to use sed but it doesn't exist. I would add it to the list, but I'm not sure where it's supposed to go. --Globalreset 23:31, 22 February 2008 (CET)

Globalreset, Since you've gone through the procedure, where did you put all the files you copied from you Tiger install disk?--Cgates30 23:50, 22 February 2008 (CET)
