Success!

6950 with acceleration on 10.8.1. using the kext attached. no dsdt. Booting with wired plugged ino 6950. No SCreen until its gotten into mac. which is fine by me. :)

using dsdt for motherboard but thats for other stuff.

dont worry guys about open Gl heaven not support our 6950 card.
try this open gl benchmark fully support
http://www.insanelym...ported-to-os-x/
so I have 2cards old setup i didn't do any changes.


10.8.2

I have 2x6950
bios setting
Init display first-2nd card
and look my dsdt also.
you have to set SMBios.plist Model Identifier: MacPro5,1 and install this kexts.

Nothing...screen without cursor! :wallbash: :wallbash:
I uploaded my DSDT: http://rghost.net/45308786
my ioreg: http://rghost.net/45297822
I hope to resolve this infinite problem... Should you edit my DSDT in order to enable Hardware acceleration? I don't know how made it! thanks!

P.S. Sorry for my bad English...I'm Italian! :wink2:

Here are the steps i did.

1) Got 10.8.1 on usb :/ should work wiht 10.8.2 as people claim. (using beast.)
2) removed graphic card and other unnecessary usb stuff
3) boot into usb (no parameters added)
4) format hdd to GPT installed mac. Reboot. Leave Usb inside.
5) login to mac get #####
6) selected my settings. as well as placed my copy of the DSDT (does not contain any graphic card stuff), mosty for sleep and audio and internal graphic card etc.
7) using kbeast installed the 3 Kexts and rebooted computer. The ocmputer should boot up fine.
8) turn comp off. addd 6950 leave wire connected on internal graphic card (might wana leave bios to boot from internal graphic card too)
9) boot into mac using internal graphic card. swap wire into 6950
10) blue screen. dont do anything just restart. u wont see boot screen or anything depending on ur Bios (if onboard is set as primary graphic or its auto..)
11) u wont see any screen until booted into mac. at this point u have 6950 full supported.

if you restart mac u wont have any problem booting into 6950 without onboard swap. but if u turn off, you will hae to repeat. onboard.. -> boot -> swap. -> blue screen -> restart. and ur good again.

Gray screen without cursor...The only thing I different from you is the DSDT that I do not know how to modify it for my configuration... :wallbash:

@OoO I doesn't have internal graphics card (i7 920) and I has only single Sapphire HD 6950 2GB.

I did not understand, sorry for my ignorance about the editing of DSDT or ioreg....
The command GE leads to white or gray screen (also with 1,2,inf restarts) and I took the ioreg from IOregistryexplorer... I have not changed anything of ioreg in order to modify it for my configuration...
Thanks for all!
