Now it supports Intel, nForce, VIA, SIS and ATI chipsets. (nForce and SIS only for AMD CPU)
If anyone have trouble with it then report as
ioreg -l -x -w 1024 >ioreg12345.txt
sudo dmesg >dmesg12345.txt
zip these files and upload here if you want I help you.
Installation as usual

About QuarzExtreme check the follow
$ cd /System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/Versions\ /A/Frameworks/CoreGraphics.framework/Versions/A/Resources $ sudo pico Configuration.plist Once in the editor, change these values to match your machine (use System Profiler to get the required details): <dict> <key>Quartz2DExtremeEnabled</key> <true/> <key>Quartz2DExtremeMinimumVRAM</key> <integer>64</integer> <key>Quartz2DExtremeMinimumDRAM</key> <integer>512</integer> <key>Quartz2DExtremeVendorDisabled</key> <array> </array> </dict>EDITED:
Version 2.4.9 is obsolete.
Version 2.6.0 completely revised at post #138 with instructions.
Versions since 2.6.2 are compatible now with new IOPCIFamily.
Works great on AMD64 in Tiger. (Look for reports)
I still use only Tiger so I can't do anything for Leo. Other developers are welcomed!
But I know that AppleMacRiscAGP works in Leo with G4-G5 CPU so AGP technology is not oblolete for Leo.
Attention for users of ATI Radeon prior to X1000!
Leo version of ATIRadeon9700GLDriver.bundle is PowerPC only
So you can't get hardware QE with these cards in Leo! Other kexts versions?
You also need to replace IOPCIFamily.kext to the corrected version
If you are using Leopard now v244
IOPCIFamily Sources for Leo
IOPCIFamily.kext for Leo attached
If you are using Tiger now, get ready to use kext
IOPCIFamily.kext v244 for Tiger
It is very hard to read all the thread so I make a guide "What to read". Press "NEXT" and read to next post with "NEXT".
Next version of AGPGart 265b2 is at post #377 with instructions what to customize.
Next version 265f with sources at post #486
For smart testers and programmers I explain how the driver works at posts 582-583
New version 2.6.7.
New version 2.7.0 with new addressing scheme at post 654.
Addressing method depends on Videocard and operation system, so try both versions 267 and 270. See other user's reports after publish the versions.
New version 2.7.1 with corrections for ATI chipset. RS200M support included.
Flush_Timeout is no more used. Best flush is found.
AGB_Base is always equal Aperture now. Needs customization for HOST_Base.
Version of IOPCIFamily254.kext compiled from sources 10.5.6. Tested also in 10.5.5.
Next version of IOPCIFamily 2.6.1 from sources 10.5.7
