Hey guys

I have been palying with the ATI kexts and added some extra stuff [particularly for OEM Devices] and created a small installer for us all. It enables QE/CI Support on ATI Cards [RV36x and RV38x series]. Since some of us can't get it to work , I made it in a Tiny Installer.

Its a work-in-progress. I might be including some extra stuff as well. Just trying to make a newbie's life even easier . Now If Only I could include something to fix that tearing

Hi Prasys
Does this one works with 9800Pro cards? I had QE/CI with Callisto before I updated to 10.4.8. and now I have to remove Callisto to get QE/CI to work, but doing that I lose resolution changes. Any ideas?

EDIT

nevermind, i forgot to edit my 9700GA.plugin file

So what are these rv36 and 38x? :construction:
Ok. I checked your installer. So it seems to be for Radeon 9700. Did not work with 9000.

You would become godlike status by doing that. Well...at least a little bit. There are a lot of people, including me, trying to get QE/CI to work on Radeon 9000/9200 cards. People with a 7500 have it...so why don't we? I would give you any support I can...and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

i am looking into it

well , i took at look at the 8500 series kext , it seems that 9200 is supported , but its not being enabled. I might need to take a look at natit on how it fools the EFI part. It sems that Apple prefers to have 9200 on the PowerPC side...

Thx for your effort. When talking about the 9200 it includes the 9000 series as well, doesn't it? AFAIK the 9200 is nothing more but a 9000 at AGP 8x. So most things should work for both series, right?

Hey man! :D
If you can find out anything with the EFI part please post! If natit/titan could work for the 9xxx series it would be VERY cool!
If this is possible, we should work together to make the perfect installer :angel:
If you need help with anything, pm me ^_^

I've checked the kext...is there any way to enable it? Or has it to be done somewhere else?

Okay , it seems that 9200 is supported as said , but its not being enabled for a reason. Maybe its mainly because its a PowerPC Driver ?. But then its a universal binary

Are you sure about that? That would mean that we can use it, doesn't it? If we can enable it somehow...

No , this is weird

The codes are somewhat targeted for PowerPC Radeon 9200 [aka Apple's one] , it certainly has a larger ROM [typical of Apple]. If there is a way to emulate them. I am going to see if anyone has a Mac Radeon 9000 and compare it with the PC counterpart

Good luck! It seems apple used some sort of radeon mobility 9000 32 mb gdr (sounds familiar?) in some ibooks. Isn't it possible to :P build in kernel support for xorg? would the osx gui run on that? My 2 cents!
