In Topic: 10.4.8 - Rosetta doesn't work for OpenGL apps.

25 December 2006 - 11:56 PM

I've solved the problem by adding Nvidia 7300GS card (used GMA950 before) and replacing OpenGL.Framework to proper 10.4.8 version. OpenGL.Framework supplied with GMA950 drivers in Jas DVD seems to be Rosetta-incompatible.

Upgrading from GMA950 to Nvidia (GeForce 7600 GS) tips

I've been using self-built Hackintosh based on GMA950 chipset (AsRock ConRoe945G-DVI motherboard) with Mac OS X 10.4.8 (Jas Intel DVD). I am huge fan of dual-monitor setups, so before Titan/Natit invention GMA-video with ADD2 card was the only option for dual screen setup.

After appearance of successful reports of dual-screen setups with Natit, I decided to upgrade to NVidia video card - Gigabyte 7600GS video (GV-NX76G256D-RH). While getting this card to work with OS X, I've encountered following issues:
  • It is necessary to put device id of video card to nvidia kexts (GeForce.kext, NVDANV40Hal.kext, NVDAResman.kext /Contents/Info.plist ). As the device id for my video card is 0392, the whole IOPCIMatch block should look like this(10de is vendor id for most nvidia cards):
    (took ~1 hour of reading forum/instruction)
  • 10.4.8 Jas DVD installed with GMA950 support has OpenGL.Framework ( at /System/Library/Frameworks ) incompatible with NVidia kexts. Artifacts and garbage will be displayed even if everything were done properly. Remove /System/Library/Frameworks/OpenGL.Framework
    sudo rm -R /System/Library/Frameworks/OpenGL.framework
    And then quickly (do not reboot or launch OpenGL apps) open JaS.10.4.8.with.semthex.pkg from Jas DVD at System/Installation/Packages folder with Pacifist (third-party utility for extracting files from pkg) and extract Nvidia-compatible version of OpenGL.Framework(in the package also at /System/Library/Frameworks). By the way, OpenGL-Rosseta problem of GMA950 (OpenGL application crush) also cures after this (took ~2 hours of reading and experimenting ).
  • There are a lot of Natit(Titan does not work with dual screen) versions by now(Dec 12 2006). Natit Wiki has a list of them. I've got only Natit_Dual_v0.x (Nov 8) to work. Later versions were setting strange display resolutions (like 1024x1280, 90 degrees rotated). Older vers does not support dual-monitor. (took ~1 hour of reading/experimenting )
  • Only analog output is working. My monitors were connected with VGA D-Sub connector(analog cable, second monitor) and DVI-D (first monitor, digital DVI cable). DVI-connected monitor was not recognized by drivers(Not connected), until I switched it to analog mode (used D-sub cable with dsub-to-DVI-A converter). (took ~1 hour of despair/trying anything). Generally, this is quite a drawback of the whole Natit-Apple tandem. It would be great, if this problem will get solved.
This is not a compete instruction, but someone may find it useful. Sorry for my broken English. Thanks to OSX86 gurus.

You should use correct version of OpenGL.Framework for Nvidia drivers. GMA950 OpenGL.Framework is not compatible with Nvidia OpenGL.Framework.

Extract the correct one with Pacifist(package extraction tool) from Jas DVD (10.4.8 Jas semthex package).

By the way, I've tried OGL.Framework from JaS DVD, and found that only one which is placed at /System/Library/Frameworks/OpenGL.Framework (on the DVD) works. The one which is in /System/Installation/Packages/Jas.10.4.8.with.semthex.pkg (extraced with Pacifist) doesn't work either. So, I am not even sure, that OpenGL.Framework placed on DVD is really 10.4.8 version.

Есть исходники проекта XRadeon

Судя по описанию альфа-версии, он не работает с ноутбуковыми-LCD панелями.
До появления Titan/Natit -- было "пока не работает", но сейчас проект заморожен.
Тем не менее для желающих увековечить своё имя в сердцах владельцев ATI Xxxx видеокарт есть некоторый простор ;)
