I have an ati 5650 in my acer aspire 5740g and i don't find any drivers. I read somewhere that SL 10.6.4 have that drivers. Is it correct? If not, when will come the drivers for ati 5xxx series?

Sorry for my bad english, I'm Spanish.

5xxx series cards are not supported in any hackintosh build.

Apple has purchased rights and several 5xxx series cards but we aren't sure what for. Its simply a waiting game...

But I don't know if those kext work with this graphic card... :(

Well, I was searching and it works (they say it works with ati 5700, 5800 and 5900 for desktop), but don't know about qe/ci, opencl and opengl is enabled or can be enabled. I can't try anything without be sure, because i cannot spend much time. I have to work with video, audio and photos and i game, too. That means i must have a full working laptop with OS X as main.

NOTE:Xan21, good work with knight rider mod for gta. I am not registered. :)

Yes, that's my screen resolution, but i have an external monitor that i would like to use (it isn't really necesary).

* which osx86 project is yours(iatkos, ideneb vs)?


I am not using any osx86 project distro, just snow leopard 10.6 retail. I know i must update to 10.6.4. I use ##### for post-installation and i am trying to build a valid dsdt for the update to 10.7.

Maybe the next year we will have some ati 5000 series 64-bit kexts...

I saw in a tester program that the framebuffer name is Megalodon. Hope this will help.

That's like me, but your screen resolution is different (1440*900). Maybe, someone with netkas's knowlegde about kext hack (or Netkas) could give us a solution for get working an ati mobility 5000 series.

it is a UNIVERSAL driver for Ati cards.



Instead of shouting you should simply try if it works for 5xxx cards. Worst thing is you get a kernel panic, then reboot in safemode and remove it.

For Snow Leopard, download the first zip, the next one is for Leopard.

I wrote this because I saw a lot of persons trying kexts for 4xxx series or universal kexts, like this, and they didn't get working

OK, I understand it, but I said cannot try anything without be sure (just one comment saying it works without KP).
