Atom Support in 10.6.2: It's Ba-aack...
A new Mac OS X 10.6.2 update build restores support for a popular netbook processor that had been removed in the previous build. Though nothing will be known until the final version is released, the sign that Apple may not be directly targeting the hackintosh community is a relief to many.
Developer stellarola had previously noted that the last Mac OS X 10.6.2 developer test build had different CPU related information. Disabling support for the Atom chip meant that the updated Snow Leopard could not be loaded on those netbooks using current methods.
He updated his earlier post with the news that Mac OS X 10.6.2 build 10C535 restores support for the Atom processor:
Wow, didn't expect to get linked all over the internet for this damn post. Anyways, in the latest development build Atom appears to have resurrected itself zombie style in 10C535. The Atom lives another day, but nothing is concrete until the final version of 10.6.2 is out.
The final release is expected to be rolled out sometime in November.

What's going on with this OS? It seems like they are pushing updates more and more and more. Reminds me of when XP came out heh.

What's going on with it?
Finder crashing constantly for absolutely no reason
Forgetting private wireless networks when coming out of sleep.
I could go on. But to put it simply, Apple is getting sloppier with age. Their new OS releases have always been nothing short of buggy for at least someone.

i noticed several crashes and weird things in snow leopard, but I would not consider them major problems. if the OS was perfect then somebody would be out of a job.

Snow leopard is not even 3 months old and already another update.

So how do these updates work? Is it like with Windows where it downloads and installs them automatically?
11-05-2009, 04:23 PM #12
No.. you buy the disk and it updates your system files and whatever. I had to do it twice because the first installation was making EVERYTHING hang.

You have to buy updates?
11-05-2009, 04:37 PM #14
OS updates yes. 10.4 -> 10.5 -> 10.6.
10.6.X updates are free. Snow leopard 10.6 was pretty cheap, only $30 vs the usual $129.
