Hi this is my first time post here, i'm a noob and have been reading the forums here and have seen a lot of success and alot of unsuccessful attempt to get the right kext to work.I'll try to explain my installation in very a simple manner to get full native res on your desktop. I have 1440x900 with multiple res but no QE or CI. Installation is based on 10.4.8 JaS SSE2,SSE3 Beta 2.

Do not install AGPGart( remove it ) and also remove ATIRadeon8500GLDriver.bundle

sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeon.kext/Contents/Info.plist
ONLY put your device id and your vendor id <string>0x59641002</string>

sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeon8500.kext/Contents/Info.plist
ONLY put your device id and your vendor id <string>0x59641002</string>

Once done download Radeon9250Driverpack http://art5dog.com/D...0DriverPack.dmg
You only need to extract Callisto and CallistoHAL

ONLY put your device id and your vendor id <string>0x59641002</string> in CallistoHAL
Then
sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/ATIReadon8500GA.plugin/Contents/Info.plist
look for IONDRVFramebuffer (delete it and replace it with CALLISTOFB)

chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeon.kext
chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeon8500.kext
chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeon8500GA.plugin
chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/Callisto.kext
chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/CallistoHAL.kext

chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeon.kext
chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeon8500.kext
chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeon8500GA.plugin
chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/Callisto.kext
chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/CallistoHAL.kext

Clear your kextcache,mkext and also repairpermissions.
Then REBOOT

ps for DEV id and Ven id you can check it in System Profiler.
Also i have only tried this on my VGA output, have not tried DVI or on a Laptop.

Others, I think (not sure if it's case-sensitive) you should change it to CallistoFB instead of CALLISTOFB (could be a typo too ;-)

Isn't the fact that you don't have QE/CI enabled due to the fact you removed "ATIRadeon8500GLDriver.bundle" ???

You might be able to try reinstalling that one and change the Callist version (I was only able to succeed when using the 003 version, the 006 and 008 didn't do the trick)

Thanks, should put CallistoFB instead of CALLISTOFB.

I did try using Callisto b03,b06 it loads and it lets me select more higher res than my monitor can support.But even if i select (default is 1024x768 after installing b03 or b06) 1440x900 or any other res which is not 1024x768 my LCD screen will be blank.

For the ATI8500GLBundle.kext maybe i will go back and try.
But so far i have not anybody successfully have QE or CI on the 9200SE agp.
