I have the same videocard as the thread originator (device ID 554d) and I followed the directions provided to a "T" (used Callisto 006). I DID implement one HUGE change however - I modified the ATI* kexts from the JaS 10.4.8 release, I didn't bother to go back to 10.4.5 or earlier. Got QE/CI and resolution switching working :-) Also got the mouse tearing, but hopefully, I can get that figured out with the help of the community as well.

Thanks

My setup:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 CPU
ASUS P5N-E SLI Motherboard (BIOS 0608)
Sapphire X800GTO^2 256MB PCI-Express Videocard
Kingston DDR2-667 ValueRAM (2 x 1GB) Memory
Maxtor 200GB UDMA/133 Hard Drive
Seagate 160GB SATA-II Hard Drive
Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 (USB)
Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse 3000 (USB)
Mac OS X 10.4.8 [JaS AMD-Intel-SSE2-SSE3 with PPF1 & PPF2]

Interesting solution and problem:

I have a Sapphire X800 AGP that I flashed to x800 XT PE, 16 pipes. R420 Chip, 4a50 device id.

Epox 9nda3I mobo w/ nForce 3 chipset
Athlon 64 4000+ San Diego
1gb ram
2 300gb pata HD, 1 200gb SATA
USB sound

Ok, so I tried the method on the first post of this thread several times, and I kept bricking OSX and needing to reinstall. (10.4.8 JaS)

I tried it step by step, and got to the point where I selectable resolutions, which was a big step for me, as I hadn't gotten that to work yet. However, system profiler kept saying my card was PCI - so I ran AGPGart. Reboot, everything incredibly fast, card recognized as AGP, and still had selectable resolutions, but no QE/CI.

With that all working, I decided to try for QE/CI again...bricked. Reinstall. So I worked through all the way back to the point where I was at before (Callisto 006, AGPGart). Okay. Everything was like it was before. So, I got a strange idea.

I went to the ATI website and downloaded the 10.4.x version of the OSX x800 driver. I installed the driver from the website, and rebooted...no QE/CI. So I went back and tried the HexEdit portion again - placing my device id into 9700kext. Did that, completed all the other steps, and rebooted - Boom! QE and CI, fully selectable resolutions. OpenGL works (tried in iTunes). All the screensavers work. No drastic mouse tearing, only the occasional little square in menus here and there.

However: There's slowdown. The menus dropdown slow, the dock operates slow...something's not right. I remember reading in this thread that people had removed AGPGart and it cleared up the slowdown...no such luck. The screensavers work at full speed in fullscreen. The OpenGL in iTunes is slow, and the DVD playback is slow.

I don't know what to make of any of this, I'm still fairly noob to OSX. I do know that whatever came in the ATI drivers helped me get past a point where I wasn't able to get before.

Anyone with any insight into the slowdown would be greatly helpful, and hopefully some of this helps someone else.

Thanks.

;) I have an X800XL with device ID exactly the same as used in the procedure. The process worked great in Tiger, but not in Leopard. I repeated the same process again with a clean set of drivers installed from Leopard DVD, the resolution change works fine just like before, but I can't enable QE\CI. Can someone help with Leopard experience?

Right. Well, i've followed these instructions perfectly, though i'm using b008 Callisto.

I have a X800XT card, PCIe.

Upon restarting, i get about the top 1/3 of my screen in grey with a few diagonal lines through it. The machine will not boot past that. I can do a -x and get in that way, it will display properly, but not using the modified driver. A few others are having issues with 10.4.9 as well, things may have changed.

I'm using 10.4.9, a Uphuck release, with the automaticlly installed Callisto drivers.

I currently have full res and everything working properly, but do not have the acceleration.

Anyone else tried this with PCIe on 10.4.9?

Used koverg patch

Installed the callistro003 drivers after the koverg patch. Works like a dream

Thanks to all who made this possible.

I am having a bit of hard time enabling QE/CI on my ATI x600 PCI-E. I am running OS X 10.5, and from the fresh install my resolution was stuck at 1024x768. Using the Calisto files and steps included in the first steps of this guide, I did get my resolution, and graphics card properly recognized. However the QE/CI part I cannot seem to get down. I followed the steps described here, and verified all the changes.

Here is the copy/paste from my Profiler.

Radeon X600 (PCIE):

Chipset Model: Radeon X600 (PCIE)
Type: Display
Bus: PCIe
PCIe Lane Width: x16
VRAM (Total): 128 MB
Vendor: ATI (0x1002)
Device ID: 0x5b62
Revision ID: 0x0000
Displays:
JW199D:
Resolution: 1440 x 900 @ 75 Hz
Depth: 32-bit Color
Core Image: Software
Main Display: Yes
Mirror: Off
Online: Yes
Quartz Extreme: Not Supported

Since I am using Leopard, I am not sure if there is a different method I should be following, but I could not find anything via the search feature on the board.

Any help would be appreciated. If I should take this to a different thread, please let me know.

Thank you again.

Just a data point or two:

I have a Sapphire x850xt. under my 10.4.8( thru 11) installs I had no prolems with my card using CALLISTO b006 and the ATIRadeon9700.xxx modifications. Both QE/CI were supported.

I finally 'upgraded' to Zep's 10.5.2 and while I can get the video monitors (two) working with the Video card, I cannot get QE/CI to work properly. I even grabbed the files (Calisto + modded ATIRadeion9700-series of kexts) from /System/Library/Extensions from a working older install image and slappend them in the directory.

No workie workie. Sigh.

Anyone got any ideas for me on how I can get QE/CI supported again (besides buying a new card... :P
