With the development of this new driver in progress, I decided to make it easier this time by creating a new forum to manage different folders, debug, new versions etc.. I'm being active since the last two weeks and get a lot of work in view.

I think it will be easier both for you and for me to organize.

I just created a stater web site which you can found here:

X86Dev.org

Every update will be made at the forum above, unless something important deserves high attention. Thanks for your understanding.

He strictly said not for x1000 series.
He said no QE/CI for AGP.

Ok, does these values are ok, and could you give me the message about the edid, does it begin with "Warning"?!

No you must remove Callisto to try it, because if you don't, Callisto will load first. And yes it should work as I have almost the same card. :)

Ok thanks for the reply.

About the IONDRVDevice and the ATIRadeon9700 problems, I just fix it this evening. I'm uploading a new one right now. The xtal calculation is related to the wrong clock rates you have, I'll have a look. And for the EDID, on which port your monitor is connected?

lol ok, that's a good reason..

I made the framebuffer exits at that point to prevent problems, because it only works with edid for now, but maybe a later version will go further that point for older monitors.

Like I said before you da man :D I installed ,repaired permissions and every thing loaded as planed. BUT i have the half screen issue and multiple screen/mouse issue. I tried with -f, -x, -s all the same. With -f AGP did load. I don't know when you are uploading the new one , but I have the same problem as ^kaneda. here is what was in boot

kextd[27]: cant find extensions with id com.apple.iokit IONDRVSupport
kextd[27]: cannot resolve dependencies for kernel extension /System/Library/Extensions/ATI Radeon 9700.kext
Found x800
Found 256 wide videoram
found Intel x86 Bios Rom
xtal calculation faild: 26534
used default PLL infos
Reference=27.00Mhz (RefDiv=73) Memory= 166.00, System= 166.00
PLL min 12000 max 35000
No connector info table detected
12C (port2) ... found TMDS Pannel
Parsing EDID data for pannel info
Setting up default mode based on pannel info

Thats what I got :blink: With Callisto 03 fix and 06 my card would be recognized as x800xt and with 08 it would just say x800 like this one. This is a start. The screen output is the same type off bug I would have with some macvidia builds when I was NV. Glad to see the Linux builds were helpful. I recently spent 2 days screwing around with XGL and can say that wasn't a joy :compress: Do we need IOPCIFaimly 1.7 with this?

No special IOPCIFamily is required. I did not fully implement TMDS panel functions in this build, this was related to the LCD with LVDS timers call, but it's on the list :D I already uploaded the new one, I just called it 1_1 because it didn't deserve the Alpha2 title yet.

I'll try all AGPGart 2.0 + IOPCIFamily version 1.8 + XRadeonFB this afternoon
I hope it will work perfect so I can replace with callisto
Great Joblo 10!!!!

Hi joblo10,

you it would have some ideia of why agpgart is not compatible
with would be x1000? and if its XradeonFB could be used with radeon
x1000?

thanks and keep working for one better OsX86 :)
