No.

Try the version of Natit posted in the this thread: http://forum.insanel...showtopic=32536

Make sure you follow the instructions on how to install it.

I tried to download that zip file, and a couple of other like it over the past couple of days. Despite being logged in I keep getting an error like :

Sorry, but you do not have permission to use this feature. If you are not logged in, you may do so using the form below if available.

Is there another site where we can download natit packages?

Out of interest do you have a copy of dual 0.1 as well? 0.2 seems to initialise the second display but system profiler claims nothing is connected.

I've got a 6800 (0x00c1) with a VGA and a DVI connector. VGA display fires up just fine, but the DVI is the one that claims not to be connected.

Cheers.

Ok, here is the Natit Dual v0.01 version (attached).

This is almost the same thing as v0.02, except that v0.02 includes an "@0,NVMT" key-value pair in the Info.plist.

i tried switching my monitor to the other output on video card...i started to have problems... hangs at boot in ide controllers...

I have an Nforce4 board. it's Asus A8NSLI Premium...

I'm not able to start Macos on any video card output...

This is starting to sound like a motherboard compatibility problem.

You can still try v0.01.

No, and you should be working with a clean install of 10.4.8 too.

You might have to try finding some other hardware to test with in order to isolate the problem. It sounds like it could be your motherboard (my bet) or your video card.

i finally reinstall macos from scratch and use natit dual 0.02
it worked the 1st time.


only one problem, my screen colors seem to be less vivid !

maybe it's my eyes...

now, winxp in parallels is a lot faster even in fullscreen.

thanks you very much.
