there are different natits, natit auto, natit ati, btw natit crashed mine too, if you want I can modify my methode for your device id but you wont have an installer, youll have to use the directions on page 2,

If you wana try that, gimme ur dev id asap and Ill mod it,

Jccool

Hi,

to find your device id, go to /applications/utilities/system profiler.app and clik graphics/displays and to your right you should se device id: 0x*** this is your device id, btw what card do you have?

Hi,

It seems you don'ty need my fulkl installer, all you need is my atindrv,
get it from here: http://upload2.net/p...V.kext.zip.html

to install it, go to /system/library/extensions and totally enialate atindrv!!! trash it make it dissapear, no longer in extensions folder,
then, extract atindrv.zip (mine) to the desktop (not to a folder called atindrv.kext literally on your desktop)
now, go to /applications/utilities/terminal.app (open terminal)
type sudo -s
type your admin password
type sudo mv /users/YOUR USERNAME/desktop/atindrv.kext /system/library/extensions
now check your desktop and atindrv.kext should have magically disappeared!
okay now back in terminal,
type sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/atindrv.kext
then type sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/atindrv.kext
now, CLOSE TERMINAL
then go to /system/library and look for
Extensions.mkext, and also look for extensions.kextcache,

TRASH BOTH OF THESE (dont worry theyll come back on nxt boot.)

now reboot and see if the artifacts go away

good luck buddy!

Hi, SaxMachine,
Glad your X1950XT is working, there isn't anything I can do about dvi and dual display because you would need to use Natit but Natit does not work at all with x1950XT, atleast it is fast and stable, I know i'm happy, it is better tan going out to buy a 3-4000$ intel mac,

For BarryBar:

Hello,

I was thinking, since the x1950 pro is based on the x1900 gt, and the x1900 gt is based on the x1900xt (r580) then I think you should try the Jccool Method. If it worked for my sapphire x1950xt based on the x1900 xt then it should work on yours,
i think it is worth a try :|.

I have modified what I did for mine to fit 7280. I really think you should give it a try.

If you do delete anything natit related and delete the 5 files included in my zip from your extensions folder and sudo mv the ones i gave, then sudo chown root...

Hope it helps your qe/ci situation, remember, vga only and right dvi port.

Good Luck,

Here is the link to the zip

Hi jccool! Will test this with my GeCube x1950Pro (link of the card is on my sig)

Great News!!!!

I did some work on atindrv and fixed the crashing and the artifacts!!!! yay!!! you still need to run through vga but atleast there aint no more cdrashing/artifacts :thumbsup_anim:. Just replace this atindrv with the other (sudo mv, sudo chown etc) dont drag n drop,

Enjoy

Tell me the results!

This should also work for reaktor's x1900,

Jccool

Here's the link:

It seems as it works! I got the spinning beach ball once, I rebooted, and now it seems to work fine! I will report if I find something that's not working.

If this works out, I am so happy! Jccool, thank you very very much!

Great News Everyone!!!

I have managed to get dual monitor support AND dual DVI working!!!!!!!!

Unfortunatly it only works for the X1950XT dev id 7244 but its another good leap!

Like last time it is a friendly self installer,

get it from here:
http://upload2.net/p....3.pkg.zip.html

Enjoy ;)

you've already tried it, wow your quick on the button :-)

Glad to help make your day

btw, on dvi mode, if you notice your native res isn't there, use switchresX (on dvi it didnt see mine at 1280x720 by default)
