Hi all,
after upgrading my d430 to 10.5.7 I found some problem with GMA950 driver: it seems the Quartz Extreme is disable (I'm also force the upgrading using osx86tools). Had someone the same issue and solve it?
The only way to fix it is to restore a backup version of the follow element under /System/Library/Extension


AppleIntelGMA950VADriver.bundle
AppleIntelGMA950GLDriver.bundle
AppleIntelGMA950GA.plugin
AppleIntelGMA950.kext
AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext
IOPCIFamily.kext

Hi ,
I have the same problem on my D420.
After upgrade to 10.5.7 from 10.5.6 everything is working OK , but QuartzE is disabled :/
I've tried different drivers and nothing :hysterical:

Waiting for someone to solve this issue.

Maciek.

I just updated two GMA950 system - one with an AsRock DVI extension card and one on a Shuttle K45. Both had running QE/CI with 10.5.6. Of course I made a time machine backup; I also copied the AppleIntelGMA950*.* and the AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext to a safe place.

I used the normal update (no combo) which worked flawlessly. After rebooting I was left with 1024*768 on both systems but QE/CI working (which means the GMA driver is working but the monitor is not recognized). Re-installing the complete 10.5.6 kext set leads to full resolution but QE/CI just with software support.

So I re-installed the original 10.5.7 driver but this time only replaced the AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext. That did the trick on both systems. Now I have the GMA950 running with full resolution and QE/CI hardware support.

thanks. Have the same problem.I'll try this tomorow- I just hope kext helper made a backup off the 10.5.7 drivers cause I tried to install the old 10.5.6 and got the same results you did.

Would someone mind posting the 10.5.7 drivers? I made the dumb mistake of overriding the new kexts with my old 10.5.6 kexts. I'd like to try to reinstall the new drivers and then copy my old framebuffer kext as suggested.

Thanks,
Chris

Solved!!

Just re-installled my intel D945GCPE (GMA950 0x2772) with iAtkos 5i using stock kernel and stock drivers and EFI string for intel enabled.. I did this even though I knew it wouldnt give true quartz extreme it only says its supported in the profiler but doesnt actually work.. this might not be necessary but I did it anyway..

Then immediately installed 10.5.7 combo update.. The after the restart the system fails to boot completely but automatically reboots again this time successfully.. not sure if this is normal but it happened the first time I tried updating also.. anyway the system is now 10.5.7..

Now to fix the GMA950 i installed this AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext using OSX86Tools.. then rebooted once more.. on startup I had real quartz extreme acceleration and full resolution changing ability.. I havnt noticed any artifacts as yet and all applications seem to be running as they should be..

I dont know where I got this kext from as I've downloaded a million kexts and driver bundles and packages etc in my efforts to get quartz extreme working again but whoever supplied this driver thank you so much..

I've also attached the stock GMA950 (10.5.7) kexts for those that need it but if you have tried as many other kext packages as I have you might be better off with a clean install as my experience was that some packages install other kexts that might give false positives in the system profiler..

Hope this helps the many others like me who struggled getting quartz extreme back after 10.5.7

As Joolay's Framebuffer.kext differs from mine - for those who do not have success with his drivers, here are mine. The GMA950 drivers are those from the combo update, the Framebuffer came from an iDeneb installation.

Edit: deleted the file - seems the frame buffer is identical to the one from Joolay. Please use his attachment instead.

Thanks JeanLuc7.. but btw my GMA950 drivers also came from the Combo update.. I just checked the file info for interest sake and your drivers including framebuffer are exactly the same version numbers and bit size identical to mine.. so just curious as to how does mine differs from yours? :)

dunno - I downloaded yours and it had a different size in finder. Maybe that was because of displaying the size in Bytes and kBytes. I just deleted my attachment to prevent confusion.

Thanks for the files Joolay, finally got the QE/CI enabled on my Inspiron 6400 with the 27a2 version of the GMA 950. Needed it as someone at App*e decided that iWo*k needs QE to display things properly (read anything at all !)

Just threw the files at Kext helper and Voila QE/CI and correct 1280 x 800 res still :P .

Thanks again.

I get QE and Res change. But there are artifacts. The GMA950 DSDT can't fix that too.

Glad I could help and finally contribute to the osx86 project

Yep I have started noticing artifacts mainly in programs running in Rosetta.. Hopefully someone can find a better solution and post.. I never had success with DSDT.. maybe Im not doing it right but my system fails to boot when trying a patched DSDT.. but the occasional artifact not gonna bother me right now as the Pro's outway the Con's.. Good Luck Everyone

Joolay's framebuffer kext fixed my resolution issue perfectly [and thank you - it was driving me nuts] but i still don't have QuartzExtreme.

=(

either way, once again, thank you Joolay!

VERY IMPORTANT!!! I want to share with you guys my fix for getting my GMA 950 to work. Im very technical but new to the world of Mac Os X. However I was experiencing some weird artifacts and my screen glitching right after an installation of atkos 10.5.7. Not to worry, dont reboot the pc just do what I did and connect the external display to my laptop and the artifacts stopped all the glitching. Then all I did was install "OSX86tools" app and used it to install the "AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext". The software restarted by itself and when it booted back up Quartz Extreme was enabled and functioning smooth with out anymore artifacts.

P.S. Also in your installation of 10.5.7 iatkos when you are installing the os under video drivers select only EFI and GMA950 under Intel and select either "Desktop" or "Rare" but not both with the GMA 950 driver selected.

P.S.S You know that your setup went correctly if after you restarted the computer after OS installation and you see the black and purple video playing back with music, but if it goes directly to you having to enter in Choosing a country and location then your Quart Extreme is not enabled and you might want to reinstall the OS choosing the correct video driver until you see the video playback or at least the video with artifacts then you can use my methods above to fix it.

Hi,

I have HP mini 1151nr i reinstall maybe 10 times test software 2 days just for fun but now I can't run Quartz Extreme on 10.5.7 on 10.5.5 working I see 10.5.7 disable somehow
-- I remove AppleIntelGMA*.* drivers + AppleIntelIntegrated... and put this from this how to ... but NO LUCK stuk ck on low resolution
-- Then I remove AppleIntelGMA*.* (those from this howto) and leave AppleIntelIntegrated... some of you say it's working only with IntegratedFramebuffer but now luck stuk ck on low resolution

-- Now i use GMA drivers from 10.5.7 and my IntegratedFramebuffer from howto i use to install it and dont have QE enabled

I installed the files you linked to and Boom, quartz extreme goodness once again. This is after installing several versions from these forums and trying desperately to get 3d acceleration back. Now i can play full screen video again.

Thanks for the help

I used to have the same problems with an Intel D945GCPE (GMA950) and was able to solve all issues (have full resolutions, CI, QE, etc., no extra kexts or artifacting of any kind) by creating a DSDT.aml file, thanks to Dr. Hurt's solution - http://www.insanelym...p;#entry1163133
