My Chameleon config file is "/Extra/Themes/*****/theme.plist"

***** .....stands for your Theme name.


Change or add these settings for a higher 1600x1200 resolution:

<key>boot_height</key>
<string>1200</string>

<key>boot_width</key>
<string>1600</string>

Prova a modificare il file in /extra/apple.boot.com aggiungendo la stringa:
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1280x1024x32</string>
Modifica la risoluzione con quella che fa al caso tuo.! Quando incolli la stringa assicurati di rispettare gli spazi...

Try to add this string in /extra/apple.boot.com:
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1280x1024x32</string>
Change this with your resolution...

So is it pretty much a given that there will be drivers to support the GTX 480 on the Mac side, or is it more of an assumption?

I'm thinking of getting one, but I want to be sure it will (one day soon) be able to work under OSX.

Well I sure hope so. I have a GTX470 sitting in a box about 3 feet from me and I'm using a 9500GT just to able to use my Hack. Not sure how long we will have to wait though. I'm hoping some really good programmer will write some drivers outside of Apple, just because there is no clear indication that this will ever happen.

Would it be possible to just use a Mac approved card (like the 9500GT) for the Mac side of things and the GTX470 for Windows, and then just use a HDMI switch or something? Or would that just confuse the computer when booting?

good news: nvidia just released an os x driver, including a NVDAGF100Hal.kext :(
bad news: it doesn't say it supports gf100 yet (just gtx 285)

http://www.nvidia.co...f03-driver.html

edit: it's working, see first post :D

i couldn't install it directly, it probably checks if a gtx 285 is installed.
so if you don't have a gtx 285, you'll have to extract all (!) kexts and copy them to /System/Library/Extensions (replacing the old ones).

I have thought of trying that before but I'm not sure the MAC OS will pick the 9500GT and the Win7 pick the GTX470.

I am duel booting (via F8 drive selection on boot up) Having both cards in the system and being able to assign which one is for which OS would be awesome. I'm just not sure if and how it could be done.

Something you might try is set your 9500 GT to be a dedicated PhysX card in Win7 and then have your GTX 470 be your primary video card. If that doesn't work, you can set your primary display in the Screen Resolution properties. You might even try disabling the 9500 GT from the device manager. I will be doing the same thing soon with my 9500 GT and GTX 470 when I finish my new computer build. I would first try the Physx option and then try the rest if that doesn't work.

update 2010/06/18: it's finally working :(

how to make it work:
1. install 10.6.4
2. install the new nvidia driver: http://www.nvidia.co...f03-driver.html (you'll probably have to manually extract the kexts with pacifist and copy them to /System/Library/Extensions)
3. edit NVDAResman.kext Info.plist to include "0x06c010de&amp;0xfff0ffff"
4. clear caches and/or ignore cache on bootup (you know the procedure)


apparently system profiler doesn't recognize the vram size, but the opengl driver does.

edit: one sad thing: opencl doesn't work yet :/


Well thats awesome, but the file on the nvidia download page is missing (file not found) so can someone provide all the necessary files please??

Not sure if I can do the PhysX thing. I bought the 9500GT that doesn't have SLI on it... DOH..
Been doing some reading and it looks as though the 2 cards have to be in SLI to have the PhysX dedicated one.. I could be wrong.. I can't find basic info like that where I have been looking.
More reading ahead of me...

Note to self - read the box before buying peripherals.. :)
