I used NatitX1600 and IONDRVSupport from cyclonefr package (10.5.1.X1600Pro.zip), modified the original 10.5.2 ATIRadeonX1000 with my device id (0x71c21002) and worked for a Sapphire Radeon X1600PRO 256 AGP on a Zephyroth 10.5.2 AMD EFI fresh install.

Thank you.

Hi people, i have some questions to get me going with OS X.

I have searched the forums for a long time now but i am missing some steps how to actually do a driver install.

Everything is working okay except my video card driver. Using Zephyroth Leopard 10.5.2 version.


What is the code for my card: Sapphire Radeon X1650PRO 512MB AGP to write in the plist file?

I have the following code from System Profiler: 0x71c6 <-- but that one doesn't look like anything i find in the Info.plist file.

Those look like:
<string>0x71C21002 0x72101002 0x71DE1002 0x71461002 0x71421002 0x71091002 0x71C51002 0x71C01002 0x72401002 0x72491002 0x72911002</string>

^ Taken from the ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/Info.plist file


What is the correct way after editing that file to install that driver?
Just grabbing/copying the ATIRadeonX1000.kext dir to /System/Library/Extensions/ then reboot or is there another step to be taken also before reboot? (There is already a /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX1000.kext dir there. Must that one be deleted/backup before moving the newer ATIRadeonX1000.kext dir? )

What do i need to with the other dirs:
ATINDRV.kext IONDRVSupport.kext NatitX1600.kext <-- do i need to edit those to and copy them to /System/Library/Extensions/ also or just the ATIRadeonX1000.kext dir?
Toor.

Hi toorsel,

im struggling with the same problem on my Sapphire X1600Pro 256 Mb.
Just add 1002 (Vendor ID for ATI i think) and youll be fine on that step. Add 0x71c61002

Just be sure to set the correct permissions and ownership on the .kext folders you manipulate.

You can do this using the Terminal (->Utilities) using the following commands :

cd /System/Library/Extensions
sudo chown -R root:wheel ATIRadeonX1000.kext
(this will set the owner root and the group wheel recursive for all files in this folder)
sudo chmod -R 755 ATIRadeonX1000.kext
(this will set permissions for the files, where the first digit represents the rights of the owner, second is the rights for the group and the third digit is for anybody else. the digits are build like 4 = read, 2 = write, 1 = execution, so you simply add up 4+2+1 for 7 and so on)

You can copy the modified kext over the existing one, thats no problem.

Im not quite sure about your last question, there are a lot of different methods that seem to work. Some ppl are running great on just adding their id to the Info.plist in ATIRadeonX1000.kext. Youll want to try that first. Im going crazy, cause none of those methods work for me here with a (0x71cd). Good Luck ! :(

@Bon Scott
Many thanks to you - your my hero! After a tremendous try & error session over several days and nights, I finally found your fantastic advice! Believe it or not (everyone who`s reading this) - my ATI Radeon X1600XT were recognised correctly and set to the right resolution of 1680 x 1050 on my Samsung SyncMaster 2232 with QE/CI (only left DVI connector, but I don`t mind)! Thank god, now I can throw away all the unnecessary kexts into trash.

So - up to the next challenge: soundcard....

Ok, sorry about that, I know this thread is old ... but I have a question !

I have a ATI Radeon X1600, and I try to set it ...

I change my DEV ID in the ATIRadeonX1000.kext, and install IONDRVSupport from cyclonefr package (10.5.1.X1600Pro.zip), reboot.

Now I have some glitch on my screen, I can't change the resolution ...

I tried to install NatitX1600 from the package, when I reboot its said : Bad installation, could not load .kext ...

What can I do ?

Thanks to all !

i messed uup with ATINDRV .10 and putted the 10.5 which avoid CI/QE.

I fixed it with ATINDRV 10.5.1 and a new package let's enjoy it :blink:
Requires 10.5.1 installed


After a installed this package, i repaired permissions and restarted.. And then I got black screen. Monitor is just simple switching off, and shows me "No Signal"... What do you suggest me to do?


P.S. Sorry for my bad English.
