I tried the package... no success. SL will not boot normal or in safe mode. I am doing to attempt a fresh install as I was having other issues as well. Any file you need to see why the KP?


Did you try to add Device (GFX0) into your DSDT? You may go to this http://www.insanelym...p...t&p=1280888 for some info although it is for ASUS P5K PRO.


P.S.
I have GT240 and I need to use only 10.6.2 and up. I could not use my GT240 for installing from 10.6 and got to use old 7300GT for installation. After I updated to 10.6.2, I swapped from 7300GT to GT240.

So I tried that package again on my fresh install and Chameleon recgonized the card but I get a kernel panic if my graphicsenabler= yes

It frezzes before I can pinpoint what is causing the panic...

Im happy to see some progress!

Just a question can you give a guest at when this card will work without to much hassle for hackintosh's as I am building my first one and dont want to buy a gtx 285 and then have to go buy a 480 next year. Im willing to live with Windows for a few months if thats what it takes.

Just picked up an EVGA "Fermi" NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 470
Starting a fresh build tomorrow based on the Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R and i7. I was planning on using the Kakewalk build method.

Any advise would be much appreciated.

I will post progress.

Possible progress!!

I manually installed three packages inside an apple update, http://www.apple.com...evgagtx285.html, and set graphicsenabler=yes:

I apologize for the screenshot, had to use iPhone as OSX won't allow me: Attached File  GTX480.jpg   147.54KB   749 downloads

As you can see System Profiler recgonizes the name of the Nvidia GTX 480 but no properties such as ram and features such as OpenCL/Quartz Extreme.

Any thoughts?

The name of GTX480 came from "boot" loader. I also think GTX480's not supported by 10.6.3 yet.

Did you try to use GFX-DSDT solution?

I added Device (GFX0) into Device (NPE1), its' address is 0x0001000. See an example. I hope this will help you get an idea. You got to know what address your GTX480 locates.

If yuo get any further, DONT forget the bench the GTX470/480 gpu with smallluxGPU (raytracing on GPU and in hybrid cpu+gpu mode)- until know ATI 48xx cards blow away our Nvidias by their massive shader/units count. We can be happy (in this case) that Apple didnt realease ATI 58xx cards ;)

I followed your instructions above and was able to reduce it to one error when compiling. I can't seem to get rid of this last one. I will attach my .dsl file and the log file

You need to add the following lines into DSDT. DSDT.aml, posted on Post#15, has this method.

[codebox]
Method (DTGP, 5, NotSerialized)
{
If (LEqual (Arg0, Buffer (0x10)
{
/* 0000 */ 0xC6, 0xB7, 0xB5, 0xA0, 0x18, 0x13, 0x1C, 0x44,
/* 0008 */ 0xB0, 0xC9, 0xFE, 0x69, 0x5E, 0xAF, 0x94, 0x9B
}))
{
If (LEqual (Arg1, One))
{
If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero))
{
Store (Buffer (One)
{
0x03
}, Arg4)
Return (One)
}

If (LEqual (Arg2, One))
{
Return (One)
}
}
}

Store (Buffer (One)
{
0x00
}, Arg4)
Return (Zero)
}

1)
Do you have LSPCI v1.1? if not get from LSPCI tool

You should get sth. like this after installing LSPCI tool and typing command in Terminal.

$ lspci -nn

....
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation Unknown device [10de:0ca3] (rev a2)
01:00.1 Audio device [0403]: nVidia Corporation Unknown device [10de:0be4] (rev a1)
....

This shows me that my GT240 card's address is 0x00010000. We need to know what the graphic card's address exactly is.

2)
Were you using 10.6.3, including Nvidia kexts? If your card placed on 0x0001000 and used all vanilla 10.6.3 kexts, you still not get GTX480 working properly. So, OS X 10.6.3 might not support GTX400 series. Then, we need to wait some members who can get it working or wait for new update.

I installed lspci and when I entered the command in Terminal I got

lspci: Cannot find any working access method.

I am using vanilla 10.6.3. Looks like it just isn't supported yet.


I'm sure we will get this. Thanks again for the help!!!

any updates?

Do you think that 10.6.4 with its graphic drivers may have fermi support?

"April 29, 2010

A note about 10.6.4 beta
April 29th 2010 Posted to ATI, Nvidia, Snow Leopard
No Fermi (gtx480 gtx470) support and no Evergreen (ATI 5xxx) support.
Also, looks like support for hdmi/DP audio on nvidia cards (transitional, via realtek chip on mobo) is coming.(it’s just new SPAudioReporter reporting hdmi audio in System profiler)"

eventually, yes, the question is when. maybe with the new mac pros, maybe later.
pc fermi cards are still rare, so don't expect mac fermi cards that soon ...

The files you all need to play with are not Geforce.kext, i know it's part of the files but NVDANV50Hal.kext is the kext you might need to edit hardware id's and see if it gives your fermi cards QE/CI. When Nvidia 8800, 9800, GTS 220, 250 etc they all enable NVDANV50Hal after it gets injected.

I just purchased myself an ATI 5770 overclocked, decided to change brands this time so i cannot test the fermi 470 or 480's.

Even though Geforce.kext has fermi code, it could only be partially implemented?
