Hi, its me again.

It seems that the black screen is a problem I will have to deal with, anyway, I managed to "fix" it. It seems my screens starts turned off, all I have to do ts to sleep my screen and wake it and It starts to work.

I just tried the 10.6.7 version of your video driver which I don't see any difference compared with the native drivers.

The screen still turned off (which it is not a big deal right now) but the performance its awful.

I was experiencing this problem before using native drivers, but in Leopard (10.5.8) the video performance was beyond amazing.

Now in Snow I can`t even use photoshop or run the Adium animation correctly.

Making a few tests I found that both, Warcraft 3 and OpengGL shows the same error:

This happens even using native gma 950 drivers.

Hi Andy firstly thanks for all your efforts.

Since 10.6.7 update everything went ok. I use your boot file + your kexts and i have full support to qe/ci on my atom netbook (hp mini). With the 10.6.8 update i have had a lot of issues hardly solved, now the only thing not working are the 10.6.7 video kexts, if i use yours all i can see are black white and gray squares..if i don't use your kexts, i have normal desktop but without qe/ci..is this an issue someone else have?

Are you working on the 10.6.8 version of kexts that could solve the problem?

thanks again

Big thanks go to Prasys for implementing the GMA GraphicsEnabler fix.

I am an absolutely newbie in this forum, but I've exerienced many FULL WORKING installation on hackintosh and use it for all my purpose with MAC PRO results...
Now I'm dealing with asus t101mt that has intel GMA3150 graphics.
Assuming that LINUX use intel 950 driver to use full capability of GMA3150, I would be very interested if there is a way to use the kext in this post to make FINALLY full working the 3150 or I must wait for a specific kext.
TKS alot
p.s. If it's out of topic please forgive me, I'm not expertize about forums, and sorry for my bad English, I'm Italian.....

Andy,

I have an Acer Aspire One ZG5 AOA150, running 10.6.7

System Profiler claims to have Intel GME945 0x27ae Rev 0x0003

This is what I tried so far:
  • Your 10.6.7 kexts
  • Your Chameleon (would not install normally, extracted boot file to root via Pacifist)
  • Your DSDT PNLF settings modified by DSDTSE.app, previos PNLF EisaID was PNP0C0A but neither helps

VideoHardwareInfo.app says GLSL Support YES / Uses QE NO

My resolution and aspect ratio is fine, but I can not see movies via VLC, I can not take PNG screenshots, menu bar not translucent...

What else can I try?

Could this be a legacy kernel issue? I'm using this one from nawcom. I also tried the mach kernel from here

This is the final kext needed for me to go 10.6.8. (cause I don't use NBI)

Latest Sleepenabler -> prasy's blog

Tea's 10.6.8 Kernel -> Modded Vanilla

Running Asus eeePC 1005HA (Atom) and an Asus S6F(Core2Duo) (I'm trying to keep a common installation on both so it would be easy to swap drives and/or SuperDuper! the contents)

Some laptop GMA950 (27a2) work with all original 10.6.* kexts, just injecting the "AAPL,HasPanel" property.

Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)                {                    Store (Package (0x04)                        {                            "AAPL,HasPanel",                            Buffer (0x04)                            {                                0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00                            },                            "model",                            Buffer (0x07)                            {                                "GMA950"                            }                        }, Local0)                    DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))                    Return (Local0)                }
Without that it gets stuck in a gray screen.


Could you please explain how I could use this above code and patch into my dsdt? Mine is GMA950 (27a2)

I believe you are right. Some also use device-properties in com.apple.Boot.plist

 </dict>
 </plist>


It's for the device which has VID, LCD, CRT, ... inside it. I add the _DSM in device GFX0. It may be PEGP, AGP, IGP, ...

I have not tested mirror. Sleep/wake works fine. It's an Acer Aspire 3690
http://www.insanelym...howtopic=216641 (sorry, in portuguese)


Would you please say where, in the com.apple.Boot.plist, these codes should be added. And by that I mean, at the top, the bottom, does it matter the exact position? Earlier, you say another set of code should be added to the DSDT, help on doing that would be great. I really would like to test this. Please help.

The best solution i found for the GMA 27a2 version is the combination
AppleintelGMA950 1.6.36
AIFB 1.4.20

Screen Resolution works fine, QE full working
second monitor too

only Word 2011 gives some curios problems with the cursor.

GraphicsEnabler=No
cause it gives problems by using PowerPoint without using a second display
