Hello...

I've seen that many many people having my same DevID get this card working with full acceleration, I don't mind about mouse tearing, what I need is QE/CI/OGL enabled... and for these people everything works ok just after a fresh install, without doing anything, even if resolution witch must be enabled installing Callisto...

This is my Laptop configuration:

Asus A2S/C SiS 6xx FX based
Pentium IV 2.8 GHz 800 MHz FSB w/ HyperThreading -> Works with SSE2 patches, HT enabled flawlessly
1 Gb Ram
HDD 60 GB 7200 rpm -> Udma works
SiS 7012 Audio -> Audio works
SiS 900 Ethernet -> Waiting for kexts
Broadcom WiFi -> WiFi Works

Display: 1400x1050 15" -> Full resolution support with Callisto 005
Video card: Ati Mobility Radeon 9600 (DevID 4e50) -> Here lies the problem...

OS: Dual Boot WinXP / Mac OS X 10.4.5 by Myzar

I've tried all Callisto builds, only 005 gives me correct resolution change but neither QE nor CI (nor OGL) wants to work.

If I try to boot with "original" 10.4.4 Ati9700 kext (just right after the Mac OS installation) I get a black screen as soon as loginwindow starts loading... If I delete all Ati kexts, I think the problem is the Ati9700GA.bundle, everything starts working correctly but I have this situation:

Posted Image

So I get two displays and two videocards recognized, and I get a fake dualview (one card is AGP, the other is PCI, this situation doesn't occur during the OS install routine!!!)... If I enable "mirroring" I get severe tearing, but I haven't QE/CI enabled, and I'm using the Vesa Framebuffer!!!

With mirroring off I get problems when dragging windows from left to right, everything I drag to the right side of the screen reappears on the left screen. I've partially solved this by dropping the second fake screen to the upper right corner of the screen in the display preferences pane, you rarely need to drag an icon or a windows through the top right corner of the screen!

So, can anybody help me? I'd really appreciate some help... thanks!!! :(

Man, I have the same problem. I have tried all but not work.
If we succeed not to make to recognize card Pci perhaps it could work!
But which kext that it is taken care of this?

Ps. I have Asus A2C Series A2000 or A2500S i don't know.

Works on my system too!
Bright and crisp display in native 1280x800.
So far so good, now working on the rest of the features of the notebook.

I have the same problem, I can't give you the answer, but I can point out the methodology to get it working.

1. Remove all ATIRadeon9700 and ATIRadeon.kext files from the Extensions folder, and clear Extensions caches
2. Install Callisto 005 (it seems this version is the only one with confirmed success for ID 4E50
3. If it is still not working, the it is a no go.
4. If it is working now, then add AGPGart Lite
5. If the card is identified as AGP card, then fine, otherwise try AGPGart 2.x
6. If it is still not identified as AGP card, you might continue anyway, but there is less chance of success.
7. Now, add ATI9700 kext + plugin from 10.4.5 (no other version), and possibly ATIRadeon.kext from 10.4.5. Edit them according to the posts above before deploying.
8. If working, great, otherwise do the same thing with 10.4.4 kexts instead
9. If working, great, otherwise do the same thing with 10.4.3 kexts instead
10. If still not working, repeat WITHOUT AGPGart
11. If it is working, try to add the rest of the ATI9700 files from 10.4.8. If it breaks, remove them.

Let me know how far you can get using this procedure.

YES !!! yours (SaxMachine) may work but from your specks you don't have the same card. It appears that Radeons newer that the 9600 64Mb(128Mb and above) do work in the way you discribe.Steve

OK look in the "Callisto" Troubleshoot document and you will find clear instuctions on how to sort this out. When you unzip the Callisto package you will find this document in the floder you have unziped it to.Basicley in one of the Callisto's Info.plist you need to change<key>CallistoUseAltPLLMethod</key></false>to <key>CallistoUseAltPLLMethod</key> </true>

Goto the folder you unziped Callisto to and read "troubleshoot" it gives instuction on how to solve the problem.Simpley there is a setting in the Callisto Info.plist that needs changing<key>CallistoUseAltPLLMethod</key> </false> to <key>CallistoUseAltPLLMethod</key> </true> I hope this helps.Steve

Finally, does someone managed to get the ATI Radeon 9600/9700/... to work with Leopard ?
I have a laptop which includes an ATI Radeon Mobility 9700 with 128Mb dedicated and i was hoping to get it to work with Leopard but all i read until now was that the kexts was only PPC binaries so no hope to see this type of card working someday.

Do someone managed to get the famous QE and CI with theses cards with Leopard ?

Dude, the last post of this thread was made over 3.5 years ago. I don't think bumping necro threads helps
