rjtd, my x800gt has a r423 chip! don't know how upset to be about this now. ;)

used his second patch, koverg-patch9700-v0.2.

edit: from Anandtech, "There is absolutely no architectural difference between these new chips and the original R423 on which they are based." so i'll not be too pissed as i'm not going to overclock. but if i'd known... grrrr. ;)

Just for the sake of interest I tried this one on Radeon 9000 AGP card. Unloaded the active ATIRadeon8500.kext and loaded patched ATIRadeon9700.kext. And what happened was just what I expected - the screen froze up ;) So I guess I'll have to stick with that crapy ATIRadeon8500.kext in VESA...

I wonder would this work on a Radeon 9600 (and up) AGP card or is this PCI-E only?

Darkcube, I too have the Mobility X300, but I couldn't get the patch to work!
What's your device ID? Mine is 0x5460
What ATIRadeon9700.kext are you using, 10.4.3/4/5?
Thanks ;)

Am I missing something?
Does this patch fix the 60Hz thing for X300?

Thanks a million Koverg :guitar:
I am happy to report yet another success!

Using koverg-patch9700-v0.2
OSX 10.4.3
ATI Radeon x300 Mobility (device ID 0x5460)
patched ATIRadeon9700.kext (10.4.3)

Now CI and QE are both supported!!!
However I only see one available resolution in the monitor control panel (1600x1200x32) and System Profiler still reports my GPU as a 'VGA-Compatible Controller'... but I don't care! CI and QE both wooork :guitar:

Thanks :gun: Korverg :gun:

It works with my X300 on Thinkpad T43!

However, the X300 on my laptop has only 64MB RAM but it reports as VRAM(Total) 128MB, is this normal?

Also, I'd like to know how to fix the mouse problem.

Thanks heaps koverg! :)

I can confirm that this does not work with ATI x200 integrated graphics. Device ID = 0x5A62.

Bummer.

koverg!

you and i have pretty much the EXACT same setup. i have the p5wd2 premium and the pentium d 820. a few questions for you...have you gotten your onboard audio working? what version of os x are you running? i just got the disc for 10.4.4 and installed...i am currently trying to get audio and onboard ethernet working, so any help you can give would be fantastic!

thanks!


In order to get the networking up and running on 10.4.4 you need to grab the 10.3.3 kekt:

/System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleIntel8254XEthernet.kext

not the entire IONetworkingFamily.kext; just that one part ... and it'll work perfectly.

Well, I have to say that I am a happy camper. Finally, my ATI Radeon x800 is fully working with the .2 version of your script. Awesome job, and a really nice contribution to the group. Thanks for your work!

It works on my ATI X800 PCIe 128M (554f). Thank you!
There is mouse artifacts. Also, sometimes when I move a window, the contents in that window is suddenly screwed and I have to use F10 to refresh it.

As for the resolution, I put "Graphics Mode"="1680x1050x32" at boot but when OSX loads it turns out to be 1400x1050x32. Anybody knows how to get 1680x1050?

Edit: My OSX is a patched 10.4.5. My PC is Dell 4700 Dimemsion.
