I had the software for a Vodafone mobile dongle installed on my 10.5 mac which caused a 5 minute beach ball after I installed Snow Leopard. Maybe installing rosetta as prompted would have made it work, but I just wanted to rid myself of this nastiness since I’m not using the dongle any more anyway.
Dear google, this is what I did, YMMV:
Remove the following from /Library/LaunchAgents/
Remove mac_swapperdemon from system preferences user > accounts > user login items
/Library/Application support/Vodafone /Applications/Vodafone mobile connect
Update: also discovered some kernel extensions to remove
sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions/USBExpressCardCantWake_Huawei.kext sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions/ZTEUSBCDCACMControl.kext sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions/ZTEUSBCDCACMData.kext
i installed snow leopard without issues.
but now at login of every user the system asks to download rosetta because the “novamedia disk suppressor” needs it to run.
here is the solution !!
