    For keyboard/touchpad, get VoodooPS2controller.pkg version 0.98 and make sure you delete applePS2 and appleAPCIPS2nub.
    SleepEnable kext would be the last installed kext AFTER you've updated your system to the latest OSX system/kernel version to prevent possible KP.

    Thanks for the keyboard/mouse update, I will try it in a few, can there be a reason why SleepEnable is missing on my system and it still crashes when I update and is there a fix for my WiFi

    As for your system crash, a KP?, there are many possible causes, and without some clues/screenshot/description, it would be very hard to tell.

    When Chameleon is installed, it will also create the /Extra folder for you, where you can have all the patches/fixes and drivers/kexts along with an extra boot.plist that Chameleon will call first during booting process.

    Apple software updater won't touch that /E folder and its contain, as vanilla/retail installation would put all kexts in /S/L/E, so the best way is to leave as much vanilla as it can be.

    Default Positive development

    I will post update when I find some kexts for XPS 16 and/or update to 10.6.4[/QUOTE]

    ]I successfully installed stable standard (needs few tweaks) SL 10.6 with EFI Generic on XPS 1640. Things you need: clean HD, CD with EFI generic and retail SL DVD
    Steps;
    • Disable all boot option expect for CD/DVD drive
    • Boot system with EFI by using F12 and selecting CD/DVD drive (follow screen direction)
    • Eject EFI CD once done booting and place retail SL DVD
    • Wait for approx 10secs and hit F5
    • Once you see SL retail DVD use safe mode (-x) to install SL. Remember to hit enter after –x.
    • Use utility to format your HD and create multiple partitions should you need multiple OS afterwards.
    • Install SL which will not take more than 30mins after which you will get installation failed error message.
    • Restart , hit F12, remove SL DVD and boot with EFI CD
    • Select the OS X drive and boot on safe mode (-x)
    • Remove all ATI Kexts and restart
    • Boot with EFI CD and select OS X drive, hit enter
    • Open EFI CD, read the read me text and follow direction.
    Hope this helps and I will keep updating as I make progress.
    Important information to know: At the moment I have not been able to update, regardless of the update I still get double panic error even with deleting SleepEnable. In event your touchpad doesn’t respond use external mouse.
    Currently am searching for fix for WiFi, webcam, Ethernet, HD3670 kext / graphics workaround and misc as well as workaround to update to possibly 10.6.4.
    Thanks to ratvn and others in the forum that has lead great opinions as well as the community at large.

    Here is a link with some info. Hope that you could find those kexts.
    I would look up for you but just have some time constraint.

    Default Upside update

    I’m smoothly running SL 10.6 on XPS 1640 with Ethernet, Bluetooth, touchpad/keyboard and booting fully functional without KP. Still working on graphics fix, sound, WiFi, webcam and a good way to update without KP. Currently it cannot play DVD; I know it maybe because of the Video card/missing graphics kext.
    Note: All my attempts to update have ended in crash/KP even with SleepEnable deleted.
