------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Doesn't work for me: HP laptop ATI Radeon 9000 (ID 4c66)

I start correctly in 1024x768 then go to Displays

Then pick up my panel's native resolution: 1280x800

Then I get a blue screen without any pointer

Cursor up to go back to 1024x768 doesn't reset the screen so I need to power down...

Even switching to 800x600 or 640x480 doesn't give a correct screen...

I also deleted every ATI* kext inside extensions and ran a disk repair permissions but still no go...

Is there ANY kext that needs to be deleted in order to get this working or am I currently out of luck?

Take care,
Tek_No

Mobility 7500 (4c57).

Driver appears to load ok and displays out good information while booting in verbose mode. However the GUI does not properly load with Callisto loaded. I get a mouse pointer, but nothing more. I even can move it around and tell by disk access that applications have been loaded (blindly), but all I see on the screen in the text from verbose mode sitting there.

This was the same result I got when I first tried omni's old open ATI driver.

Same result here

so what about the white or worst the messed up screen? r u using like me 10.4.6?
cause omni said he ran it on 10.4.4 .5 and .6 so i dont get it...
i m sure it comes from monitor detected as CRT when it's a LCD

anyone tried switching back to 10.4.5

ATI Radeon 7500 :: same as rogabean, mactogo:

Callisto: omni's ATI Driver&FrameBuffer, build 001, 30-Apr-06
Callisto: MMIO range@0x18 (c0100000) mapped to kernel virtual address 0x20425000
Callisto: Found 32768k of DDR 64 bits wide videoram
Callisto: VRAM range@0x10 (e0000000:02000000)
Callisto: Non-DDC laptop panel detected
Callisto: Found Monitor: LCD
Callisto: Guessing panel info...
Callisto: Detected panel size from registers: 8x1
Callisto: done with ATI Radeon LW

Seems to detect it fine, but it does not work. I also tried with AppleI386AGP instead of IOPCIDevice ... the same...

i) boot using -v : never get a login window
ii) boot graphical: I get a white bar instead of mouse and then some tearing over the gray boot apple.

:)

Just thought I would add that I have an ATI X800XL installed the drivers... despite what the FAQ said about no support and it seemed to work fine... only problem when I change the res the screen goes black and I need to reboot.
Again just thought I would add that incase another person with an XXXX card wanted to try.

same here. seems like radeon 7500 isn't supported at the moment.

BTW, i had something like that when i tried to run both ATIRadeon.kext as AGP.
it seems like that while OSX identifies my AGP bridge it cant load up the radeon.kext properly and if i try to load it i get the same symptomes as above.

my system is T42, OSX 4.5. radeon 7500 mobile pentium m 735 (1.7Ghz no PAE, SSE2)

For me everything will load up just fine, but when I try to change resolution or refresh rate I get either "out of range" or a blank screen. So close to working. I'd like to thank omni for allowing us to try this! :) I have an x600 SE. ID 5B62. The monitor is a CRT KDS XF-70 if that is of use to anyone.

Are you using AGP or PCIe card?

Exact same as me mactogo. No difference. I've tried with and without theATRadeon.kext and with different versions. All results in the same result.

The driver is detecting card ok it seems, it's just not loading fully from what I can tell. Perhaps omni can shed some light on it later for us.

maybe JAS can help us....as he said his driver was working flawlessly in 1280*1024@75 Hz...and in the opposite on omni's site u can see omni can only be in 1600*1200*32 bits and cant change resolution with his latest release...so maybe this can works better with omni's first release who knows? until JAS tell us and share his driver

So no one is having the driver working fine after every reboot? right?
