not working on my radeon mobility 9000.

installed okay. first reboot it kicks into 1024x768 and appears to work okay then on resolution change the screen fades to blue, then purple and i get some weird fade thing going on. rebooting causes the fade to persist when the system comes up. no way to get into the os without removing the kexts in single user mode.

keep up the good work though :D i look forward to future releases!

No CI or QE, as expected, but I can say that the driver at least loads ok on my 200m. Few issues though:
* Resolution change, like with so many others, not working
* System Profiler reports only 16mb memory as opposed to the actual 64 or 128...

But we're getting there, you're doing awesome omni. Keep it up!

This is probably a really really stupid question. I looked at the FAQ, specifically, this:

# How do I get the QE/CI/OpenGL KEXTs to work with Callisto?
Look in your /System/Library/Extensions folder for ATIRadeonXXXX.plugin/ (XXXX depends on your card model). Edit its Info.plist, under IOProviderClass key change IONDRVFramebuffer to CallistoFB, update or delete Extensions.mkext and Extensions.kextcache, then reboot.

I looked in the Extensions folder, but found no ATI files there at all, apart from ATI.kext... any ideas why I can't find it?
I'm using a Radeon 200m, if it makes any difference.


same here about didnt find not ATIRadeonXXXX.plugin inside Extensions Folder
My Asus a9250ge/256m aka Radeon 9250 Pro that OSX recognizes as a 9200 Pro id is 5960

Using Ati 9600 pro with Samsung SynkMaster 913n works like a charm but when I first changed the resolution screen got fuzzy.

Failure with ATi FireGL T2 128mb (9600 Pro mobile equivilent) on an IBM T41p. System boots, but then cursor turns into a white line and screen is stuck on the grey loading screen with some coruption in the upper left corner (black squares, etc) System keeps loading and by all indications keeps running, display is just corupt.

Could somebody host a backup of whatever was on Omni's site?

I've got a Radeon 9600, and so far people seem to have good results with it. Can't wait for 1680x1050!

Takuro, we know you can NOT help yourself. ;)

so i'll remind you that omni does NOT want his site, or the files on his site mirrored. :)

I was only aware that he didn't want his source code posted. I didn't know he was against the idea of posting the finished Alpha material too.

I was one of the ones telling others to be impatient up till now, but I guess I got caught up in the hype. ;)

Good work, Omni! Can't wait to see how this driver develops over time.
