    Try replacing the IONetworkingFamily.kext in S/L/E with this one:
    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
    Repair permissions using Disk Utility and reboot, then test. Should fix issue. (had the same problem and found this kext)

    I have updated my HP Pavilion m9180f to 10.6.2 and DID get kernel panics right off the bat; There appears to no longer be support for my cpu in this latest kernel...

    So, in order to avoid having to reinstall my system from scratch and revert back to 10.6.1, I simply had a backup of the 10.6.1 kernel (which I copied onto a usb before upgrading to 10.6.2) and copied this file over to my /Extra folder and edited the com.apple.Boot.plist file to load this backup kernel and voila -- 10.6.2 is up and running beautifully for me now.

    Hope this helps...

    So wierd... I updated my system through software updater and all went smooth for me. I have yet to get a KP. Can you provide details on how to back up your kernel for future reference? Thanks


    cheers

    Strange... I've yet to update and NOT get one. I have both an HP Pavilion Elite m9180f with an Intel Quad Core Q6700 and a Toshiba L300 Dual Core Laptop which both have kernel panics upon upgrading.

    Makes me wonder then if it's the current install of Snow Leopard from which I am upgrading FROM -- Originally I was using a retail version that I purchased, but recently switched to using this Universal Image that I found online as it had custom kexts included which made the install progress a lot easier... the build numbers were identical, so I doubt that is the issue.. but who knows..

    I first tried updating the Toshiba L300 from the System Prefs and experienced panics, and then on my HP I used the Combo Update package and it too resulted in panics.

    What are the extra kexts you have installed? (like NullPowerManagement.kext, etc) Did you remove anything after installation? What are your specs by the way? Just curious.

    To backup the kernel, simply use the terminal and copy the current (working) kernel to a disk or another location (like "/Extra") by doing the following:
    PHP Code:
    cd /Volumes/<Snow Leopard Partition>
    cp mach_kernel /Volumes/<Snow Leopard Partition>/Extra/mach_kernel_backup (or wherever you want
    Then (providing you have Chameleon RC3 installed), simply edit the apple.com.Boot.plist file under the "/Extra" folder of your SL install and replace the following lines:
    PHP Code:
        <key>Kernel</key>
        <
    string>mach_kernel</string
    with:
    PHP Code:
        <key>Kernel</key>
        <
    string>/Extra/mach_kernel_backup</string
    and just ensure that the location above matches where you copied the backup of the kernel in the first steps.

    Hope this helps.

    Well I feel like an idiot. But at least I figured it out.

    Turns out the kernel panics after upgrading (on BOTH machines) was due to the "dsmos.kext" being present in my /S/L/E folder.

    I didn't realize this kext had been installed (from this Universal installer I've been using recently) and once removed, SL 10.6.2 works beautifully (without use of the old kernel to boot!) Fakesmc.kext does the same thing as dsmos.kext did (as far as I'm aware) and I had that kext installed as well, so not an issue removing dsmos.kext.

    Thanks for helping shed some light on this issue for me Dray.

    Hey Guys, Thanks for the info. I updated 10.6.2 Straight from Software Update. No Panics. Ouija Thanks for the info on backing up your kernel (I know I'll need that in the near future!).

    No problem Ouija and good work on getting your SL updated!

    I installed the retail version of SL and used all the kexts you provided in your tutorial to get it running. Check my sig for system specs. Only issue I really had was the LAN not working with the realtek1000.kext. In fact, I have removed it all together. The only way I got LAN to work was by manually setting the speed and duplex to 10meg and half duplex but it works fine. I tried to update the ionetworkingfamily.kext you provided earlier but it would cause my System Preference to not respond (beach ball) so I removed it and replaced it with the original ionetworkingfamily.kext and all is great so long as I have LAN manually configured. It doesn't seem to affect the performance of the system set that way so I will leave it alone for now
    BTW, thanks for the kernel backup info.

    what hex code did you use for your graphics card? I'm having a tough time finding an actual config. for it. Thanks

    Yeah, SL seems to be a finicky bitch when it comes to my Realtek Lan card as well. That kext I provided earlier stopped working for me and I kept getting a "Self-Assigned" IP with it, which I could not seem to resolve.

    In the end, I used the following: MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
    which (for whatever reason) under 10.5.8 used to only run at 10MB/S but is now working at full speed under Snow Leopard.

    Try it and see if maybe it helps you

    mnrivera210, what kind of graphic card do you have?
