you should not have issues with edp 1.8 built for d620-intel using edptool.command QE should work with 10.6.7... edp should put proper dsdt in extra. make sure you are installing to the hdd both edp and chameleon

I too am experiencing issues with QE and my D620 / Core 2 Duo 2Ghz / Dell A10 Bios / Chameleon 2 RC5 from the newest Extra.ZIP / 3gb DDR RAM / SL 10ud.;6.7).Although I'm certain it's GMA 950 based onboard video, system profiler says it's an nVidia graphics card. Sorta odd... Animation is occasionally choppy, VLC is black screen video with audio, and MKV files are unwatchable full screen. My previous installation was Leppy's w SL 10.6.2, and none of the aforementioned issues existed. Perhaps I should use the old video kexts, or would there be version mismatches?

boot into bios and check first part of bios drop down menu, it lists all your hardware. then build edp according to your graphics (intel or nvidia)


Yes, it says GMA945 so I installed Intel. Not sure what has gone wrong...
