the graphics card will show up as unknown only because your injection method isn't sending the name.


you can manually edit chameleon's source and add the devid/name if you like but so long as you get full res and qe/ci it's just a cosmetic change, no benifet whatsoever


edit:

for further info, if you wish to make it show up properly in system profiler, assuming you are uisng chameleon's GraphicsEnabler=Y this is what you do:

find your graphics card devid...if you don't know it, get lspci for osx from here:


http://osx86.sojugar...r-1-0-released/

and do the following command:

sudo lspci -nn|grep nVidia

look for the vga, it should look something like this:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation Unknown device [10de:0cb1] (rev a2)

notice my devid? it's 10de0cb1

now, check out chameleon's source:
svn co http://forge.voodooprojects.org/svn/chameleon/trunk chameleon

edit the file chameleon/i386/libsaio/nvidia.c

you should have NO problem finding the devid's, heres an except:
{ 0x10DE06C4, "GeForce GTX 465" },
	{ 0x10DE06CA, "GeForce GTX 480M" },

	{ 0x10DE0CA3, "GeForce GT240" },
		{ 0x10DE0CB1, "GeForce GTS 360M" },
	{ 0x10DE0E22, "GeForce GTX 460" },
	{ 0x10DE0E24, "GeForce GTX 460" },
	{ 0x10DE06D1, "Tesla C2050" },	// TODO: sub-device id: 0x0771
	{ 0x10DE06D1, "Tesla C2070" },	// TODO: sub-device id: 0x0772
	{ 0x10DE06DE, "Tesla M2050" },	// TODO: sub-device id: 0x0846
	{ 0x10DE06DE, "Tesla M2070" }	// TODO: sub-device id: ?
};


simply copy/paste a line and edit it to match your devid, for instance, i've added This line:



{ 0x10DE0CB1, "GeForce GTS 360M" },



once done, save the file, and from the main chameleon directory type:

make

(you need xcode for this to work)


this will build chameleon. when done, the new chameleon files are located at

chameleon/sym/i386/

then follow this guide for installing it:

Thanks for the reply! I have another question before I try, would the ROM version number be updated and show on the profiler as well? Mine is currently xx.xx.xx. Thanks!

I updated OSX to 10.6.4 and couldn't get the OS to recognize the graphics card, even after further software update. The chipset is "unknown" and the rest of the details follow:

Chipset Model: Unknown
Type: GPU
Bus: PCIe
Slot: Slot-1
PCIe Lane Width: x16
VRAM (Total): 1024 MB
Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)
Device ID: 0x0cb1
Revision ID: 0x00a2
ROM Revision: xx.xx.xx - internal

Also, I have the X5 model, which has an i7 processor, so the Hardware overview is also inaccurate, how would you fix that? I could change processor speed through SMBios, but that's about it.

Model Name: MacBook Pro
Model Identifier: MacBookPro6,2
Processor Name: Intel Core i5
Processor Speed: 1.6 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 4
L2 Cache (per core): 256 KB
L3 Cache: 6 MB
Memory: 6 GB
Bus Speed: 533 MHz
Boot ROM Version: MBP61.00C1.B03
SMC Version (system): 1.30f3
Serial Number (system): G8101101G0
Hardware UUID: F070AB8B-1BD4-5D08-92D7-7D38CF6E5939

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

System Profiler is purely cosmetic. Wether sys profiler "recognizes" it or not, your hardware is running just fine. But, it should be able to get the correct hardware info. I see here that it gets the cache info and the clock speed all right. As far as I know, its the job of the bootloader to supply hardware ids and information to the OS. What bootloader are you using? AsereBLN is a really great one and fixes a lot of issues with our chipsets. Also, older bootloaders don't play very well with new silicon.
System profiler DOES recognize your gfx card cuz it says 1024 MB but not its name from it's ROM. If you boot into Verbose mode, you may find FakeSMC declaring that your card is too new and it doesn't recognize it, however it works fine.
All in all, don't bother of System Profiler. But, to get this right you may try the bootloader thing and if that doesn't work, I'll come up with something better.


Thanks for a quick reply! I'm using AsereBLN bootloader. In verbose mode, I think fakeSMC didn't recognize the card, however, I think my gfx card is the same as most of the G51jx's. I saw other post (post #76 @ 1:05:10) here

http://www.insanelym...p...60&start=60

that has the card recognized while mine didn't. It should be the same card :/. I tried to replace mach kernel back to the original one, but that didn't help, either.

By the way, I got wireless to work through here:
