I can confirm graphics issues for the FX as well. (10.8.2 / Sinetek test 1 Kernel / HD6570)

atm I replaced the HD6570 with some old HD4650 and the glitches appear to be gone, so OpenGL 3.3 seems to be less problematic...
I have not yet tried flash etc though.

btw:
Nice to see all the work that has been done on the AMD Kernel matter, during the last months.
Big respect to Sinetek, AnV and all others involved. :ihw_wow:

Actually I planned to stop spending time on this, but I could not resist to try the latest achievements. :D

The problem is OpenGL. If you ati6000controller.kext used with AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext, AMDRadeonVADriver.bundle and AMDRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle the graphics are bad but fast. If you ati6000controller.kext used without AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext, AMDRadeonVADriver.bundle and AMDRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle the graphics are good but slow. The cause is AMDRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle

Sorry for my bad english it is translated

I made some small progress...

My HD6570 works on Mountain Lion without glitches using IOAccelator driver from Snow Leopard 10.6.8...

This will need some more work, maybe we can patch the current drivers...

Amazing. Do you have proper acceleration and Core Image + Quartz Extreme?

Well accerlation in general works - I can play Neverball etc. :D
But few core features appear to be problematic using the old driver as Dashboard isn't working properly. (I rather think this is a compatibility issue with the more recent Frameworks...)

I just tried with the 10.7.3 files. It is the latest official build that shipped with ATIRadeonX3000 instead of AMDRadeonAccelator.
But there seams to be no difference...

I am using /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX3000* instead of /System/Library/Extensions/AMDRadeon*
...to be considered a temporary work around.

On Lion 10.7.2 booting x86_64 installed with iAtkos L2, I have Full QE/CI and acceleration without glitches! Dashboard ripples, translucent menu bar, etc. Using Bronya kernel with arch=x86_64. in iAtkos customize menu, choose ATY_init and do not choose GraphicsEnabler. I'm not using any modified/patched kexts other than the ones I mentioned. Graphics card is Radeon HD 6570 - other 6xxx testers welcome. I will test 10.7.5 soon. When iAtkos ML2 is downloaded, I will test that as well.



UPDATE: After running 10.7.5 Combo Update and installing Bronya's updated kernel, my HD 6570 still runs perfectly in x86_64 :D

Hello,

I've done an installation with Mountain Lion and amd_kernel. All is OK, but graphics crashes all time. Example:

Posted Image

this are my graphics information:

Posted Image

I have ATI HD 5850 1GB model and I have two monitors connected. I have not installed any adicional graphic kext.
I try different ati config framebuffer in bootloader (Hoolock, Uakari, Vervet,...) but is useles..
I used chameleon bootloader (With clover might work?)

The rest of the computer: AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE, 12GB Ram and Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3

Any idea?

Now I don't have any graphic error, but don't have QE/CI

my graphics driver here

Edit update: I've been testing. The problem is the amd_kernel (check this). If you load ATI kexts without AMDRadeonAcelerator all is OK except QE/CI is disabled. If you add AMDRadeonAcelerator and edit it with you device ID the system starts to fail.

Not sure , my gpu died after flashing it to a 5770 and back :(
I connected my monitor by HDMI, so video output works for sure.
But I can't remember about audio. :$

Don't boot with GE commands!
you might also need to fix permissions in case you didn't do yet
