The working cards (plese send device id if possible!!!)


+???? ATI Radeon x800


My ATI Radeon x800 XL has device ids of 554d (digital to LCD - working now) and 556d (vga - secondary not installed at the present). This patch works great, and show be added to both the Wiki and pinned on this forum.

ATI Mobility Radeon x700 128Mb on Acer Travelmate 8104wlmi on 10.4.3
[0x5653, 0x1002]

Partial success with patch 0.2 - Core Image & Quartz Extreme Working!!
VLC DVD playing back smoothly even at fullscreen.

BUT lots of window content tearing when scrolling [see attachment]
(no 'mouse' tearing though?).
Slightly improved by simple one-colour desktop background.

Apple DVD player loads, but is unstable and crashes.

Desired 1680x1050 resolution in boot plist ignored, it defaulted back to 1400x1050 as before.

Overall too buggy to keep, so going back to normal kext for now.
Might try it once I'm running a 10.4.5 install.

Seemed to enable CI/QE without the driver fully supporting it, in my case.

Thanks Koverg for demonstrating that text based plist editting is only half the challenge for hardware support, more binary patching also needs to be done too (by people more familiar with that!)

Maybe the same technique might get my Realtek ALC880 Audio (VEN 10EC, DEV 0880) working, as plain kext editting doesn't.

When I try to run the patch I get this:

Patching to device id: 0x5460
mkdir: /Users/Doug/Documents/originals: File exists
./patch9700.sh: line 11: ./binmay: No such file or directory

Any suggestions?
I have a dell inspiron 9300 running 10.4.4 x300 mobility

Thanks

EDIT: Got it working. I edited patch9700.sh and changed ./binmay to /binmay
Have no idea what I did but it worked. :angry: Thanks a ton, now I can see front row instead of a white
screen.

Put the patch file on your root of your HDD (where apps, library, system, users) are.

then remote the . from the ./

Run the script and it worked, however I cant find the ATIRadeon9700.kext file any help?

Im getting this error,

spooksie-pooks-computer:/Users/Vinnie root# sudo /patch9700.sh 54 60
Patching to device id: 0x5460
mkdir: /var/root/Documents: No such file or directory
cp: /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeon9700.kext: No such file or directory
/patch9700.sh: line 11: ./binmay: No such file or directory

I think it is because I dont have the radeon kect file, im running 10.4.3

Any update on the issue I have seen? The system running this is 10.4.4.
The post is on page 5. Patch was applied exactly as the instructions indicated and upon reboot OS X fails. The output is in my previous posts on page 5

This is simply no go for me with x700 mobility (ID: 0x5653). I have made a clean install of 10.4.3 (jas patched) and correctly applied the kext patch and changed ID. Then I kextcache and after reboot I get a blank screen after loginwindow has loaded. This seems to be common on other few people's ATIs here.

I have also tried other stuff like unplugging peripherals, disabling usb, network, audio etc. in bios... still no go.

The weird stuff is like it seems like os x is fully loading, no kernel crashes, no spinning beachballs... this is getting kinda frustrating... :angel:

I'd like to ask other people with x700 mobility:

- Do you have widescreen LCDs?
- Does your model support hypermemory?

Before you kick my ass... :D
May be your kext is messed up... Here is mine. Since our device ids are the same it should work for you.

I had the patch working on 10.4.3 with a Powercolor Radeon X800 256mb PCI-E (0x554f). Working QE/CI, couldn't change res even through Boot.plist though for whatever reason (I probably screwed that up).

I just recently reformatted and installed 10.4.5 using the patched iso and the subsequent ppf that was released to upgrade to 10.4.5. Booted into OSX without a problem. Ran the patch without any problems, edited the 9700 kext, cleared kextcache and rebuilt, repaired permissions, edited my Boot.plist and then restarted. OSX now stops at starting the logon window applet. No error messages or anything, but it doesn't boot into GUI. If I had selected a bad resolution/refresh, wouldn't it still default to 1024x768?

You are getting the very same error than me, weird that you had it working before. I get your error in 10.4.3...

I'm using a ATI X800 GT (0x554b) here.
QE and CI are working fine.

Change of resolution via bootlist possible.
But OSX (10.4.5) won't start up as soon as I set a refresh parameter.

Mousepose didn't fix the "tearing problem".

I'm guessing this wouldn't be helpful for my PCI 9250?

Is there a way for me to edit my boot.plist without booting into OSX, or can I specify a different resolution from the boot prompt? Macdrive causes WinXP to have a system halt if I try to open a file from that partition.

Well, my X1800XL (PCIe) works without any patching at all... QE, CI and OpenGL are all supported but ... I still can't specify any odd resolutions (like 1440x900x32 which is what I'd like to use). The kernel gave me some messages about this but I'm not in front of the box right now so ... this is all I have:

Here's what kextstat and glxinfo report:
