So far, no luck for the Mobility x300, but I've been thinking about doing a fresh install of OSX, so I'll try again later this evening.

Thanks for all of your hard work Omni!

Doesn't work here either, it all works well up to changing the resolution in the preferences.

Id=5460 if anyone cares.......

Already tried twice, last time on a fresh .5 install, so I wouldn't bother.

Ah well, it was worth a shot, as has been said, this a just a preview(alpha).

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

Im on a 9800 XT, it works but indeed after a reboot the screen goes crazy, changing the resolution fixes it.
For me QE CI is not supported (im curious to know how you made it work cyclone, since we almost have the same cards, pm me if have any info, merci bien).
Many thanks omni for this great alpha release, good luck on your work.

easy Simania just modify the ATIRADEON9700GA.plugin seek for IOATINDRVFramebuffer and change it to : CallistoFB
exit and save
reboot works fine

so u experience the same problem as me?? i guess the first version omni used a month ago was working far better kind of ironic? let's wait for his opinion

Thx for your answer.

It looks like that PCIe cards are not working(kernel panic) with omni's alfa driver yet.
If i am wrong please let me know.

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.


Did you do anything special to get it to work? All the driver did for my x800 xl(PCI-E) is give me a kernel panic. :thumbsdown_anim:

Working just great so far on my AIW9600XT. Running back at my native 1280x1024 resolution. QE/CI supported. Still same problems which I don't believe are the fault of this driver- mouse tearing, slow QE (nForce3/AMD prob?). Props!

No I didnt do anything special all I did was follow OMNIs intructions. and I didnt get a panic.
Also I am running 10.4.6 and I am not running any other patched driver for video.

So you didn't have koverg's on, then? Guess I'll try with a "virgin" Radeon9700.kext then.

EDIT: Even using a fresh Radeon9700 still gave me a kernel panic...

lol...hmm...well, I actually just clicked Erase as I started reading this. oh well^^

When I tried changing res's, it would go black if I increased the res from 1024x768, or it would do this weird color fade thing if I tried to decrease it...either way I didn't have video.

ID=5460 for my ATI Radeon Mobility X300 too.

Update: Did a fresh install with Jas's 10.4.6 DVD, and same results.

I got the following message after reboot:

The system extension “/System/Library/Extensions/CallistoHAL.kext“ was installed improperly and cannot be used. Please try reinstalling it, or contact the product’s vendor for an update.


I followed the instructions to install and also repaired the disk permission.
I am still using Myzar V2 10.4.6 upgrade because it's fine with me. Don't know if that's the problem..

Any ideas?


Edited: I followed the instructions again, then it is loaded now. Must be some typo.

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.


I'm getting the same result with my PCI-e x800xt (id 5d57). I'm currently running 10.4.3, but I'll update to 10.4.6 later today and see if there is a difference.
Also, I'm using a couple of Dell CRT monitors

Omni driver loads and displays (almost) correctly on my ati mobility radeon 7000.
Changing resolutions and refresh rates provocates distorstions and errors similar as the ones described above...
It runs, except that I have to delete Extensions.kext and Extensions.kextcache every time I reboot, otherwise the screen is a mess...

There is one little glitch that I realize is displayed right now that I am typing: when I type "g" the lower part of the letter leaves a pixel on the screen.

Thanks a lot OMNI!!
