Hi all,

Sorry for starting a new topic, but I am doped on on painkillers after an operation, and I am having trouble wading though all the disparate instructions available in various threads. A lot of them seem to be for running OS/X on non-Apple hardware, which is not my situation.

Can anyone tell me how close is Natit/Titan to supporting something like my BFG 7950GT 512MB video card on a Mac Pro? I am currently running my system with both the default 7300GT and the new 7950GT, one monitor on each, so that I can at least use it.

I installed the Netit 1.0 installer. The system boots, but my second video card doesn't work, even though it's detected apparently:

Dec 8 07:21:42 localhost kernel[0]: Natit: Setting @0,name=NVDA,Display-A
Dec 8 07:21:42 localhost kernel[0]: Natit: Setting NVCAP=<data not shown>
Dec 8 07:21:42 localhost kernel[0]: Natit: Setting @0,device_type=display
Dec 8 07:21:42 localhost kernel[0]: Natit: Setting model=nVidia NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GT
Dec 8 07:21:42 localhost kernel[0]: Natit: Starting.

Dec 8 07:21:42 localhost kernel[0]: Natit: Setting device_type=NVDA,Parent
Dec 8 07:21:42 localhost kernel[0]: Natit: Setting @1,device_type=display

Dec 8 07:21:42 localhost kernel[0]: Natit: Setting @0,fboffset=0x00020000
Dec 8 07:21:42 localhost kernel[0]: Natit: Setting @1,compatible=NVDA,NVMac
Dec 8 07:21:42 localhost kernel[0]: Natit: Setting @1,name=NVDA,Display-B
Dec 8 07:21:42 localhost kernel[0]: Natit: Setting @0,name=NVDA,Display-A
Dec 8 07:21:42 localhost kernel[0]: Natit: Setting NVCAP=<data not shown>
Dec 8 07:21:42 localhost kernel[0]: Natit: Setting @0,device_type=display
Dec 8 07:21:42 localhost kernel[0]: Natit: Setting model=nVidia GeForce 7300 GT

I tried installing the latest Netit.kext from the sticky thread, and it only made things worse -- on the monitor attached to 7300GT I gOt the grey boot screen, then the blue splash -- and then the dreaded black screen. I reverted to the previous version of Natit.kext. DevID doesn't seem to be my problem, since Natit seems to detect my card just fine.

Given that I have a Mac Pro, and OS/X works fine otherwise, is there anything I can do now to get my 7950GT to work in OS/X, or is waiting for the next Natit release my only option?

I know there is a problem with Nvidia 7xxx cards with 512MB on Hackintoshes with Natit/Titan - not working.
