try adding your device ids to the kext,also this is just to help with sleep not res and refresh... thats not ready for release yet.

Omni is the one working on the ATI driver so when he says its ready you will know.

I was just lucky to get to try it out,and I tried to link the GA kext to his framebuffer and not IONdrv luckily it worked ;)


do you think this might work for macvidia????

Jas:

It didn't work for me either. All what happens is that the cursor dissapear when the screen is supposed to sleep. I've opened the Info.plist in the RadeonTool package but I can't find a place where to put my device ID at. Would you mind to elaborate a bit more about this step?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Way to go Omni and JaS ;)

Finally I will get rid of the ugly stretched widescreen desktop (just in time cause my eyes are getting worse every day while using it like this)

Tiburon: no, there are currently no drivers available for download until Omni decides to release them...

Take care,
Tek_No

He's probably talking about using MouseLocator, a better method than Mousepos (at least for me), free and unibin. The (minor) problem is that mouse arrow doesn't disappear when changing to cursor when there is a text input. But hey, there's no tearing!

Take a look at the mouse tearing thread @ genious bar for links and instructions. The shadowed cursor works better for me.

Jas I was in the strangedogs forum reading about flashing ati cards and some guys have that same problem but they are working with ppc macs. They adjust there cards roms to fix this. Could this be what we are experiencing? for reference http://strangedogs.p...14473559&page=9

Is there a way to "lie" to the drivers about the card ID? without flashing the card? :)

People need to start reading more and start posting less. A lot of these quesitons (not all) are just plain stupid or have been asked many times before.

"Will my card work with the driver?" If you used common sense, you would know there is no way to predict that untill omni releases his driver, and he will do that when he feels like it should be released. The same people saying release it now will prolly be the same ones saying: "it doesnt work for me, you suck omni!"

And ffs guys/girls, just use the search first. If you don't find results, search again. And again. You will fid results. Then start thinking about posting. If you do post, try to make it look like it has all the information about your question/problem.

Next question, "why does JaS have the driver and I don't?" Even though I don't know them, I did read that JaS is helping omni with the driver. SO in order to help, he would need a version of the driver. JaS is probably more able to handle problems that occur with driver development that most of us forum whores do. We will get it when the testing/devving gurus like omni and JaS think the driver is ready for us. Again, he will do that when he feels like it should be released.

/just made this post because I have a feeling that there will be lots and lotsa posts with the same thing asked over and over again.. :/

you can always refer idiots to that sticky if you want to remind them of the policy of non-pestering.

I've posted this earlier but I'll repeat myself again. I want to add proper monitor detection (or at least *some* detection) so that your CRT's flyback transformers do not get fried by some freakish accident (like having a 300Hz vertical refresh). If that's not reason enough for you, then what else can be (or you feel like buying a new monitor?) :)

Also, I will try to implement hardware cursor to the driver in hope that it will rectify the problem of tearing or at least make it less pronounced. Whether that will help or not - I do not know, we'll see when I get it working - IF I do.
