I have 7600 Go and used Natit_Uni_1.0.pkg to install Natit.
I booted with -v -f, it loaded the kexts, loaded Natit (with unknown model and twice for some season), then it waits for about 10 seconds and after that one of two things happen:
1. The screen goes black. But desktop still loads, as I'm able to do a "blind" shut down.
2. The desktop appears with resolution of 800x1280, though my display's native reso is 1280x800. It's quite impossible to do anything with that reso.

While I hope that I could override the resolution with "Graphics Mode" boot option, is there any way to get the desktop appear _every time_ it boots?

Try following the Video link in my signature and reading the Nvidia 7600 links.

Tried both solutions before, got either a black screen or black and white boxes.

I did some more testing and eventually got it working with this guide: http://forum.insanel...mp;#entry250023
First time I followed this guide I thought that the Natit version doesn't matter, but somehow the only version that works for me, is Natit_Dual_0.2.
I replaced all NV*, ATI*, GeForce* and OpenGL.framework from the original 10.4.8 Combo Update and then added Natit_Dual_0.2. I didn't have to edit any of these.
Anyway, it has booted with right resolution for 3 times out of 3, so I'm quite happy :blink:

Hi,

I have a Nvidia 7600Go like you, if I understand well , you have your 7600go works with Natit_Dual_0.2 on Mac OS 10.4.8. But you don't say if QE/CI is enabled on this card.
Is the case ?

Thanks for reply.

512 mb nvidia cards dont work with titan/natit


Ehehe...
I have a 512 MB card and it works! Its also recognized as a 512 MB card in system profiler...
So the VRAM is not the problem...

Sorry I meant to say 512mb Nvidia cards. 512mb Ati cards work fine.

Yes , I have Nvidia card with 512Mo (7600 Go) and it appears that titan or natit don't works with NVIDIA card WITH 512Mo.
That's right ?

As said above, Natit doesnt work with 512mb Nvidia cards especially the 7XXX series, Although their is one case of it working on a 7900GTX. I have a 7600 gs, and I have tried Natit and titan. I couldnt even get Macvidia to work to change resolutions. I have tried 4.8 kexts and opengl framework with no luck. I even tried to put in my device id. All of these give me kernel panics. If someone could figure a way out to get it to work it would be really nice :thumbsdown_anim:
