In Topic: Dell Optiplex GX280, KALYWAY LEOPARD 10.5.1 installation problems

05 January 2009 - 09:37 PM

Alright, I am a long way from the last post I made. I have Kalyway 10.5.2 Running on my Dell.
WORKS FANTASTIC! With an exception to the Video.
I believe my Video card is not reconized properly. There was a time where I had Tiger running on my machine with the video fine, but with Leopard, it's all wrong.

There is only one resolution to choose from (1024x768)
It's reported that I have 0 MB of VRAM!
And something called Quartz Extreme is not working Properly.
Can someone re-direct me to a place or topic about these video cards, and their compatibility?
Maybe JaS would work better than Kalyway?

I am having this very same problem, only on a Dell GX280, with the same version of Kalyway as said.

I think I'm more confused than disposable157 in this.... lol

Anyway, Will this Kext file thing work for me as well?
Video Card Instance ID: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2782&SUBSYS_01791028&REV_04\3&172E68DD&0&11

Device Name: Intel® 82915G/GV/912GL Express Chipset Family

P.S. This video card has 128MB, so It's odviously reading it wrong, since the Logic Installer thinks I have 0 MB of VRAM.
It also says I need something about a Quartz Extreme Card.

I have a Dell GX280, and it's running Kalyway 10.5.2 Very Well, only with no internet.
I had some problems with the built in NIC with this computer... the installer would freeze before it even booted if I had it enabled, and Leopard still freezes on boot, if I enable it in the BIOS.
I put in a PCI Ethernet card, to try and solve the problem... however it may not freeze leopard, it still does not work.

Windows Information Devices:
Built in NIC:
Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller

PCI Ethernet Interface:
CNet PRO200WL PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter:

Please Help!
I would just like to get one of these devices working in Leopard!
The computer runs everything else in it very well.

I also have a Dell GX280...
My Mac installer won't load...
I have disabled my Ethernet adapter in the BIOS...
Mine used to freeze when it got to something about my Ethernet card...
After disabling, I went back and tried again... this time it no-longer freezes at the point it was before... BUT IT IS REBOOTING!
I can't exactly tell you what it says before it reboots... because it suddenly shoots up about 4 lines and then the screen goes black... REBOOT!
