Yes. I've installed it a couple of times in all the reinstalls of the OSX.

Shouldn't there be about the same drivers on all releases? Even if it's not im more happy to switch if you got it to work. Which kernel did you use?

... and also (since I'm a total noob at OSX) Is there a way to install a driver from the DVD after the OSXinstall, or do I have to pick the right one in the beginning? A.T.M. in the info it says: Kernel Extention Info : No Kext Loaded... Whatever that means.

Ok, now I'm able to boot with good results:
ATI Radeon X1900 XT:

Chipset Model: ATY,RadeonX1900
Type: Display
Bus: PCIe
Slot: Slot-1
PCIe Lane Width: x16
VRAM (Total): 512 MB
Vendor: ATI (0x1002)
Device ID: 0x7249
Revision ID: 0x0000
ROM Revision: ATYinject X1900 0.0.1
EFI Driver Version: "01.00.140"
Displays:
SyncMaster:
Resolution: 1600 x 1200 @ 60 Hz
Depth: 32-bit Color
Core Image: Hardware Accelerated
Main Display: Yes
Mirror: Off
Online: Yes
Quartz Extreme: Supported
Rotation: Supported
Display Connector:
Status: No display connected


But the only way to get it to boot is by:
-s
mount -uw /
/movevideodrivers


I also managed to get it to boot without that but only ONCE just after applying tha "graphicsupdate1.0-patch". The next boot after that I caught a bluescreen again.

Suggestions anyone? Is it a bad idea and use the "-s mount......" bootoption all the time? And if not is there a way to automaticly get it to boot that way?

Thanks

Maybe I'll wait a bit until there is an update from Jccool for 10.5.3.

you should try to add your device ID to the ATI kext :(

Or you tell about another kext?

If you do install 10.5.3, you can regain QE/CI by re-installing the jccool 10.5.2 NON-EFI update. This, in combination with GFX and Audio EFI strings, gave me QE/CI back. While not an ideal solution, it will provide hardware acceleration until we can develop an updated fix based upon the 10.5.3 kexts.

Hope this helps

I'm not having much success with 10.5.3. Adding the device ID to the 10.5.3 kext and using the EFI string results in a freeze at the spinning wheel during startup (or with -v, i get a cursor over the page of text and it stops there), installing the 10.5.1 jcool ver 3 package gives me QE/CI but i get the black menu problem, and then updating that with the 10.5.2 NON-EFI update makes my system boot to a blank blue screen with a line accross the the top :P Right now i'm using the ver 3 package with the standard 10.5.3 ATIRadeonX1000.kext so at least this way i have resolution and readable menus although no hardware QE/CI.

Friends, I have got my qe/ci back. So, you can try this solution too.

Firstly, I've restored original Apple files from 10.5.3 update package (ATIRadeonX1000.kext, ATIRadeonX1000GA.plugin, ATIRadeonX1000GLDriver.bundle, ATIRadeonX1000VADriver.bundle and ATIRNDRV.kext) using Pacifist.

Then I've edited original ATIRadeonX1000.kext and manually add to Info.plist my cards ID (0x72441002).

But after repairing permissions and reboot I have no qe/ci :rolleyes:

So I've tried this solution from Bronya (see the first post):

sudo -s also enter the password root!
chown -R 0:0 /system/library/extensions
chmod -R 755 /system/library/extensions
rm /system/library/extensions.mkext
rm /system/library/extensions.kextcache
kextcache -k -z /system/library/extensions

And it did work for me :P Now I have Leo 10.5.3 and full qe/ci support:

So you dowloaded those drivers? Or just installed the 10.5.3 update, and added your dev id, and then did:

sudo -s also enter the password root!
 chown -R 0:0 /system/library/extensions
 chmod -R 755 /system/library/extensions
 rm /system/library/extensions.mkext
 rm /system/library/extensions.kextcache
 kextcache -k -z /system/library/extensions

? Thanks for any help.

THANK YOU SHAMMAN! This is confirmed working for me.

I had 10.5.2 with EFI gfx strings all working well.

Installed 10.5.3 update dmg, as per netkas, then reinstalled .kexts particular to my mobo, then rebooted.
Result 10.5.3 without CI/QE

Applied SHAMMAN/BRONYA fix:

1. sudo -s [password]
2. nano /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/Info.plist
3. edit device ID 7244
4. chown -R 0:0 /system/library/extensions
5. chmod -R 755 /system/library/extensions
6. rm /system/library/extensions.mkext
7. rm /system/library/extensions.kextcache NB. I got a file not found error. I kinda knew there was no kextcache.

8. kextcache -k -z /system/library/extensions

REBOOT! into working CI/QE~!

Cheers!
