I have been struggling for hours now. I just cant find a way to find and delete the sleep enabler kext file. I am a noob with the terminal in the installation dvd, cant get to the folders where I need to be. Isn't there a program to externally access my files without going trough the damn terminal ! I have a macbook pro 2.2 with snow leopard 10.6.0. Can somebody please help me !

  • (1) WHY would you want to delete the sleepenabler.kext file (2) What are the folders where you "need to be" and (3) What happens when you try to "get" to them? Plus, how does a "Kernel Panic" enter into the question? – Eric Apr 9 '14 at 23:58
  • "If sleepenabler.kext causes you a kernel panic, the bigest problem newbies have is getting rid of the kext without access to the OS.". The sleepenabler causes a kernel panic, because its an old version. I need to reach the following folders; Boot your install DVD, run Terminal and do: rm -rf /volumes/nameofosxpartition/system/library/extensions/sleepenabler.kext rm -rf /volumes/nameofosxpartition/system/library/caches/com.apple.kext.caches/startup/Extensions.mkext – Isley Frimpong Apr 10 '14 at 0:18
  • I simply need to get to the folder volumes/ my partition etc. I can get to volumes directory but cant get to my own partition with the terminal. Thats the noob part. – Isley Frimpong Apr 10 '14 at 0:30
