I fixed the QE/CL support for the 9600 card. Im currently using Callisto and CallistoFB.

I understand most people failed with this attempt to enable QE and CL wihtout Koverg's patch. Here's what I did:

1) Install Callisto Drivers
2) Reboot
3) Add "CallistoFB" to ATIRadeon9700GA.plugin
4) Remove the Extensions.mkext/kextcache
5) Reboot
6) It should work.. it worked for me.

Btw.. just incase people say "You don't have a 8600, your sig says 6000d", I have a 8600, its just my older laptop that I use solely for school work since the battery life on this thing is outragous better.

Any questions, e-mail/pm me for faster (I don't visit the forums much) responses.

i just want to say thanks for compiling all of this info together. it has really helped me accomplished a lot. playing with osx86 is just as convincing as picking up a macbook. i think my future investments will goto apple.

Anyone know how to adjust the CPU frequency when on battery? Mine doesn't auto-downclock. I figure I need a program to adjust it by hand, but can't seem to find it.

I have no way of knowing if speedstep is functioning correctly or not. Don't know where I can check my cpu frequency. All I know is that the battery life is about the same length as in Gentoo or Windows with CPU at %100.

Just thought i'd mention the TrueMobile interna wireless cards (mine's the a/b/g 1450) worked with no adjustments with the HOTiSo 10.4.6 release.

And just a note for some: don't see the "ati mobility drivers" in the HOTiSo release and think that it works for the ATI 9600PRO - it doesn't

It won't work cause nvidia cards don't have any QE/CL support
