10.6.5 Legacy Kernel is out with Good News for AMD Users

Its a very long title. I thought of saying this , for once AMD users are able to rejoice as nawcom , AnV , azimutz got an awesome kernel in store for you. This allows you to get 64-bit working in AMD and as well on the fly opcode patching (now you don’t have to patch 5,000 files like you used to). The kernel is way cleaner and it handles better

There are few exceptions however. For instance QuickTime doesn’t decode H264 videos in 64-bit , as its related to SSSE3 instruction set. Rest is assured that work is constantly being done to improve the OSX experience for AMD Users

For details , I suggest you to head over to nawcom’s blog. If you wish to install the kernel , you may do so by download via one of the links below :-

  1. I heard or read that you could run Some apps in 32 bit mode (right click ) but i dont know if this applies on Quicktime decoding…
    Anyways congrats to AMD users xD

  2. I tried this kernal on old laptop with 10.6.4 applied after 10.6.5 combo update. not working. Are there different versions of 10.6.5 Legacy kernal? I have a p-4 3.33 laptop with working 10.6.4, trying to upgrade, thank you Prasys

    If you are using a processor that does not lack 64 bit support “do not” use -force64 on it. Also I don’t know of anyone who has tested that on the prescott p4 models that are supposed to have 64 bit support. I personally suggest only AMD people to use -force64.

  4. Thank you, there will probably be a release for me at some point. I appreciate your work even though I can’t use it, take care!

  5. http://www.hackintosh.com/ is linking to your blogg saying there is a “Snow Leopard on a PC, The Easy Way – A quick-and-easy method to install Mac OS X 10.6 “Snow Leopard” on a PC from Prasys’ Blog”
