I think retail is definitely the way to go.

Originally I did an iDeneb 10.5.6 install, but then found the beauty of EFI/Retail on my AMD box... I now have the chameleon bootloader EFI setup with retail 10.5.6 and will be dual booting to Vista 64.

So in short, RETAIL!

What's the major difference you felt??
I just had problems with iPC installation and considered moving to an iDeneb one, since I've started on the mac world 2 weeks ago. But everyone who tried retail prefer it! So, I got the image file and trying to figure out if it should make REAL difference to me, as a new mac user!



Thanks!

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

I tested VoodooHDA but mic/line inputs doesn't work with it.

I'm using HDAEnabler.kext with AD2000b.HDA.FIX.kext from "The King" over at Insanelymac. Loads fine from /Extra/Extensions or Extensions.mkext.

I *really* am not using any patched kexts in S/L/E.

I've done a 'archive & replace' install of vanilla 10.5.6 on top of iPC 10.5.6, booting with my Chameleon 2.0 boot CD. Updated to 10.5.7 yesterday with little effort. Only needed a legacy kext for the new AppleYukon2 drivers to get LAN working again.

I don't know how I would have figured all this out without having a working frankentosh installation to start from.

If i have to format again i'll try out retail, but meanwhile iDeneb it's the best.

Dunno what iDeneb installs or what it doens't, what really matters is that works, and will continue working if you install the updates provided by them (i've got an Intel 3945 so i don't have internet at all :), i prefer downloading a 200 mb update than the 800 mb update from apple.
