Yes...the Video Memory is now 512MB but there is still the same issues with the full screen movies for example...or maybe a litle bit better, I don`t know...


What issues do you have with fullscreen movies,i can even play flash hd from youtube .You have to disable harsware acceleration on flash player settings.As for quick time i've always been able to watch movies in fullscreen!!!!

The REAL issue is that my CPU is Intel Dual Core T3400 2,16 and I need to load it with one core (cpus=1) otherwise verry often I get Kernel Panic. So if I load with the two cores I can watch fullscreen even without need of 512 MB VM, only with native resolution. S I need something to work with ONE CORE. I`m not saying that U did a bad kext or some...on the contrary I`m verry glad that there are still people who wants to help us, milions of users cursed to use Intel GL 45 chips!!!

I tested this on a few distros and on an existing install with x4500 patch it did nothing, a clean install of iatkos v7 gave 512MB VRAM, iatkos v7 updated to 10.5.8 worked gave 512MB VRAM, ideneb v6 lite edition gave 512MB VRAM, snowleopard universal installer 10.6 (64bit) same, snowleo vanilla install same (64 and 32 bit) So it seems to work across the board although I don't see any differance in haveing the 512MB over the 144MB in snowleo mine shows 800MgHz from the RAM in leo (iatkos and ideneb) 667 but that is from the distro not this kext so it works great and does as advertised native resolution with no artifacts and with no patching. Great job alabamas native res, no artifacts and a no-patch kext that can be replaced when we do get QE/CI without having to reinstall :P FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!

Just as expected, got a dark screen when it's the time for desktop on Thinkpad T40, seemed to be a backlight issue. Anybody got a fix?

Define dark. Backlight but no picture, or picture with no backlight?

After patching dsdt with some X3100 string, I got a blue screen after the blue screen now, and the system seemed to be dead. Anyone got a clue?


OK, great news:


I finally got native screen on thinkpad T400 with x4500 in snow leopard, 1440x900@60Hz,

However, only in safe boot mode. Otherwise, it gives a damn blue screen as I said earlier.



I couldn't capture screen at this moment, can only get a blank white one. Dunno why.


Pls help.

Are you using 10.5.x or SL? I run 10.5.8, and mine had the exact same symptoms; blank backlit screen, no picture. There's two ways of fixing it- replacing the AppleIntelGMAX3100FB.kext and adding Natit.kext (both available from links in my sig), or patching the DSDT and adding display overrides if needed. You may be able to boot using -x, then turn on Screen Sharing so you can work on it using a different pc.

Damn. how can I get rid of "-x"? Is this a know issue or what?
Your AppleIntelGMAX3100FB.kext and adding Natit.kext can get me free of "-x"?

See my previous post:

I doubt my drivers will help if you're in 10.6.x. See, this is why I'm happy sticking to 10.5.8 ;)
