hi paulicat,

Is this applicable in GMA 3100 too? I saw in your printscreen that you made this for 950. Thank you very much.

Guys this is basically for 950 for laptops, it didn't nothing to my GMA950 Desktop board.

We still need to do more research on this.

After a quick look at keplenk's ioreg dump, all thats really needed is to adjust naming from GMA 950 to GMA X3100 and adjust device id's. I'll try to make the changes tonight and post a test kext. Again, this will be for laptops first.

Can someone please paste in the device id for the GMA X3100 please?

As for GMA950 on desktops, I need to see an ioreg dump from a mac mini running Leopard.
Any takers?

Cheers!
Paulicat.

Yay! *Patiently waits for Paulicat to release an X3100 version* ;)

The GMA950 version works fine on my Twinhead H12Y, by the way... Looks like I might have 2 hackbooks soon :blink:

Test version for laptops with GMA X3100. I poked around and found a device id of 2a02 for GMA X3100, can someone with one of these cards confirm that is correct?
If not, please post the correct device id please.

Please boot with -v to see if Alkor is loading any settings.
Repair permissions blah blah the usual... :P

I am not sure why, but in WinXP I have two devices for my video driver....Vendor ID: 8086 Device ID: 2A02Vendor ID: 8086 Device ID: 2A03This is an Intel GMA X3100 on a Dell D630 lappy.

Paulicat, Will that work on 10.4.x or is it Leopard only? I have no external display so can't install Leo until I can replace the files on the install DVD.

Updated to hold both device id's posted by errandwolfe.

As for Tiger support, did apple release X3100 kexts in a tiger update? If not, you're out of luck for tiger support.
However, if someone wants to try this on a gma950 in Tiger I'd be interested to know if it works with the later efi based framebuffers.
For the record I haven't tested this on Tiger at all since using the old 10.4.5 framebuffer worked perfectly up to and including 10.4.11.

Someone please step up and paste an ioreg dump from a mac mini running leopard.
There's lots of people with GMA 950 based desktop boards waiting for you.

Paulicat.

P.S This kext should support both GMA 950 and GMA X3100.

Okay,
I will update this as I make progress. I am removing the X3100 kexts from the DVD so hopefully I will be able to install Leopard in VESA mode. Once I am up and running I will install this kext and report results.

UPDATE 1: Thanks to Azureul's obvious but yet completely overlooked method (at least by me) I am currently installing the ToH RC2 release. Stay tuned for updates.

UPDATE 2: After installing Leo am getting an immediate kernel panic on boot. Don't have any more time to look at this tonight, will continue my efforts tomorrow.

the natit.kext above worked great on my laptop (Fujitsu T422) with X3100! The only problem I had was it wasn't loading my laptop's resolution in the beginning, so I had to boot with "Graphics Mode"=1024x768x32@60"

Thanks Paulicat!

edit: adding screenshot!

Cloudrainstar can you confirm that you now have full resolution switching on the laptops lcd display please?
I just want to know exactly to which extent it worked for you.
Also, I notice you have the external display...you have both displays working properly?
If so, thats a bonus!

Paulicat.

Cloud, I am assuming you are on Leopard? After installing did you remove the GMA X3100 kexts or leave them in place. Am not exactly clear if Natit is an add-on to modify existing kexts or if it simply would replace the X3100 kexts.

This Natit enables you to use the leopard X3100 kexts fully and completely.
You don't have to remove anything, all you need to do is chown/chmod this natit and drop it in /System/Library/Extensions.

my laptop display can only display up to 1024x768.. it seems to screw up when displaying the smaller resolutions..

but yes, i have both displays working! :D

I'm running leopard, and I didn't remove any of the X3100 kexts, like paulicat said, I just put in his natit.kext for the internel display to work!

Azurael, which Leopard release did you use? Do I simply install the natit with kext helper? Things don't seem different but that might be because I messed around with the x3100 kexts before...

Nevermind, I restored my X3100 kexts and now everything works perfectly! paulicat, you rock!
