OS X 10.5.6 Install of Choice
« on: April 06, 2009, 10:04:21 PM »
So what is your favorite flavor of OS X 10.5.6?





Edit: Changed to non-sticky, 10.5.x is now replaced by 10.6.x. Also trying to minimize the number of stickies for readability's sake.

I think it is some kind of low-fat cheese substitute.

But but I'd happily love to see a walking eating dinosaur... just as long as it wasn't trying to eat me! =)

Retail works the best and you know exactly what is modified, but it is system specific.

I think iPC release is the best for newbies with recent computer because it haves a lot of drivers.

For old computers JaS is the best (I was able to run Leopard on a old P4 [willamette sse2] with an Intel D845HV and 1GB of pc133)...

   Definitely Retail 10.5.6, Only thing I had to do after installing 10.5.6 was to install apples 10.5.6 update over the 10.5.6 retail install (installer allowed me to do this). This gave me the "Restart automatically after a power failure" option in Energy Saver preferences. Check that box and sleep works great! EP45-DS3L, Q6600, ATI HD2600XT.

Don't knock the hackintosh distros.

Non-retail serves as testing grounds to find out what patched kexts are required to run retail.

Some distros install patched files by default without you knowing or being able to select/diselect them (like iDeneb for example). Is very unlikely you can realize which files are really vanilla and which arent.
On other distros not based on retail disks (like iPC 10.5.6 or XxX 10.5.5) the 'Base system' is an updated 10.5.4 to 10.5.6 repacked with a method similar to the 'instahackintosh' script. So you dont really get a clean retail install either, since these updated 'base system packages' often had mixed system files...

Maybe but I still managed to do it on iPC 10.5.6.

The other day I finally removed the last non-Apple kext, and then I replaced everything in the extensions folder with vanilla extensions from my 10.5.6 retail DVD as a test.

It still works.

All required patches except the Voodoo Kernel are running from /extra and /extra/extensions.mkext

How is your audio working?  Does voodoohda load from /Extra?  Otherwise, I don't think you have all your kexts replaced.

Honestly, going from retail to completely patched is much easier than you might expect.  Just start with the required kexts (decrypt, maybe openhaltrestart, hda, then start getting things like networking and video running, fix your icons with plist only kexts, then work from there)  If you start with a hacked up install disk, you'll never know for sure, and eventually, some update will overwrite a kext you didn't realize had been patched and you'll have no idea how to fix it.

Trust me, I've been doing this for years (yes, really, YEARS) and the external kexts and efi strings are making life so much easier on everyone.  But getting people off the training wheels and onto retail seems like it will be the community's biggest challenge yet.

I'm a Mac noob.
I installed 2 days ago my first osx on pc.

Used the iPC 10.5.6 pff5.
Its running smoothly (besides voodoops2controller problem now).

I know there's a LOT of tutorials on foruns. But I want to know if you can show me one of the bests!

I really dunno the process of installing retail, bootloader, installing extra kexts, configs, etc ,etc, etc.

Sorry the silly question, but I thinks its almost unanimous that retail installation is the best one. Thou, I really want to know how to install it.


Thanks in advice.
Gustavo
