    Default trying to explain and justify my exclusion of the Extensions folder

    first draft....

    -------------------------------------------------

    there are 109 kexts in the 10.4.6 Extensions update.

    of those, 41 are unchanged from 10.4.5

    64 kexts are newer versions

    36 of those kexts are ATI, Nvidia, or GMA950 related, i back them up to a folder, so people with modded and other working video drivers are not affected by an update to drivers that don't work out of the box.

    32 new kexts remain.

    7 of those kexts don't work for any of us, they are either what we've been using since 4.3, or broken by 4.6.

    3 of those kexts are IO*.kexts. IOATA, IONetworkingFamily, and IOUSBFamily.

    26 new kexts remain. of those, some have been modded to work with laptops and odd
    hardware configurations. two examples are AppleFWAudio.kext and AppleHDA.kext.

    the purpose of this guide is to update to 10.4.6, with the same working hardware you had in 10.4.4 or 4.5. to make sure that the greatest number succeed, the personally customized Extensions folder is retained. whatever work a person has done to get their system working, no matter how rare, or bizarre, is preserved.
