excellent :D

so what do we need? i don't know. could you make zip files? one with all the ati stuff, one with all the nvidia stuff. and what else do we need..... sinetek?!

edit: but can one run those kexts if they are 32bit or are they 32/64?

I've got a working DP1 dmg. I can upload kexts if needed.

So do I, if it helps.

No luck with my GT 430. Stops soon after loading NVDAGF100Hal and the NTFS drivers.

Using GraphicsEnabler=No it boots but no native resolution or QE/CI. Also it only detects a 3MB GPU instead of the 1GB GT 430

Ok, here is my result:

copied over all the ati files to /s/l/e, fixed permission and restart.

1. boot:
normal boot, boots straight to desktop, no qe/ci.

2. boot:
tried with GraphicsEnabler=Yes AtiCofig="Hoolock"
got a black screen. can login, but no picture.

3. boot:
GE=Yes
black screen, login works. then i pluged in my vga monitor and disconnected the dvi one. got my screen with wrong resolution and no qe/ci.

also i noticed that my good old device in slot 1 message is back :D

at least there's no kp. let's see if i can do more :D

we need a kernel at the very least. Could you upload /usr/lib/dyld and /usr/lib/system/libsystem_c.dylib please? I'll take a look at those

Shane, the Fermi cards aren't supported anyway, so that's not much to go off of. The 6xx cards will need graphicsenabler=no.

So i tried a bit and could't get my 5670 to work. that does not mean it generally doesn't work. maybe someoe with another radeon should try that (like SS01 mentioned).

i'm too sick, going to sleep now :D

almost certain the kexts he uploaded are very equal to 10.7.5 prob. are cause the new AMDRadeonAccelerator is missing

since they behave very similar to my test with the lion kexts ...

Easier said than done.
I am an official Apple dev and even I don´t have access to the GM xnu sources... go figure... :(

Hi, Andy and all!

Well, for the moment, i think we all either buy ATI cards (the ones that are reportedly working, because there are some that don't) or stay with Snow Leopard until a fix for nVidia is available (my case - i'll keep my Mountain Lion partition, since it's a reminder of the awesome work done here, but it's unusable for my purposes, since my AMD machine is also my HTPC).

Best regards!

Hey all, some info:

This thread's kinda getting out of hand. ;) So I'm going to split off general OS discussion from kernel discussion, by OS. If I accidentally put a post about one operating system in another OS's thread, just shoot me a PM.

Glad to see progress made. :) Finally salvaged a new old machine (hehe), so I'll test how everything works on a Pentium D.

Ok, so it seems 10.8.2 seems to not work with any kernel on FX CPUs... Instant reboot after loading kernels.... I remember back about 1 month i had to manually set the cpu ratio flag by: "busratio=15" But it does nothing now, not on AnV nor on Sinetek... Could some of you skilled devs look into it? Thanks.

Install failed. " The installer could not start up the computer from the disk " damn. My settings are AHCI.

Phenom 960T
HD 7750 (Graphicsenabler=No)
GA 880gm-usb 3 rev 3.1.
8 GB DDR3

It went ahead with the installation but at the last it gave me the error above.

Should work
