installed it on my Hack, no problems and no real speed improvement either, 9800GT


I've installed.. How to know if it is using this drivers/kext? I tried to use nvclock. it gives me this:

Hey all I have the drivers installed and am using a Palit GT240 512MB Nvidia card. What I dont see in the about this mac info, see pics (left DVI to HDMI in) (right HDMI to HDMI in), is that it is a recognized chipset or vendor?. Also HDMI out to my Samsung Television just gives me a blue screen?

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get the about this mac stuff straight or doesnt it really matter? Is it just cosmetic? Also the blue screen I get when I connect HDMI out to HDMI in on my Tele?


EDIT, HDMI works after leaving DVI adaptor in and then plugging HDMI into HDMI port on video card. Removed DVI adaptor and rebooted the PC starts up with no problems, cant really tell if there is a performance improvement though. Must say the picture looks/feels crisper in any case.

EDIT EDIT EDIT: Stopped working had to revert back to 7600GT. Lost nearly all resolution options, does anyone have any tips for installing the above mentioned card?

Thanks in advance for any replies I may receive, cheers Plucka

working on my Geforce Go 7600 with res change + QE/CI via NVEnabler (the one for 64 which also works fine in 32). Thanks NVidia, xtremegamer, xforce, and all who wanna be mentioned .. :)

I applied this update because, since 10.6.0 or 1 (don't remember), I have been suffering from annoying "jerks" in the graphics, and every once in a while a complete screen distortion for which to clear up I would have to put the monitor to sleep via Exposé and rewake it via kb or tp.

So I need to see in the following days now if this driver finally makes graphics as pleasant in X as in Win & Ubuntu here.

If so I would be very happy. Then there would only be sound left on this HackBook to straighten out 100%, yippie :D

Besides pacifist, there are two ways to modify the installer to work without checking if you have a 285 (the drivers are universal). I used the second way to install on my GTS 250.

Thanks, you're a legend. I used #1

Tried to install this driver but had no luck with my GeForce 9800M GTS. I spend whole day reading forum and trying almost all up to day solutions, but had no success in running hardware accelerated OpenGL :) In fact it worked tomorrow, but after update to 1.6.4 i had kernel panic because of VooDooHDA and in process of it's fix i broke video driver. I run iATKOS S3 v2, picked up EFI Strings for DVI/DVI and NVEnabler before installation. Maybe i should reinstall Mac OS with other options?

I can use the new driver in Snow Leopard 10.6.5 64bit using Pacifist and extract the Package then run them manually (there are Display Driver.pkg, Open GL.pkg and Video Driver.pkg) …. repair permission and restart ….

but the same methode can't run in my Snow Leopard Server 10.6.4 64bit …. the system can't reach desktop…just blue screen …..

I think this new driver only for 10.6.5 and newer …. or i miss something … :wacko: :D

I installed the drivers by editing the .dist file in text edit, my video card is a 9800 GTX+, device ID 0612. Rebooted and it looked like that. Everything seemed to work though.

I could boot from my 10.6.3 install DVD and delete the drivers from Terminal.
Then I rebooted with GraphicsEnabler=n, installed the 19.5.9f02 drivers and all is back to normal.

I'm running vanilla 10.6.4, as far as I know I don't have anything interfering with graphics except the injection of course.

If anybody knows how to get the drivers to work without everything looking like gigantic scary 70's quilt patchwork please share.
