I've got a system built up with the 10.4.8 ISO from that pirate-related website... it's not JAS's cd though, because I can't seem to find his. The system installs great, boots up, recognizes both of my Dual Core CPUs, PATA and SATA drives, etc, etc, etc. Full audio support, network support, etc.
I've been trying for about 6 hours now to get the video working though... its stuck in standard VESA 1024x768 mode. I know I can force a higher resolution, but I also have dual monitors that I'd like to use.
I've got TWO Nvidia 7800GT cards with the Device ID 0x009210de. I can either use 1 card with two DVI outputs, or use 2 cards with one each... i really don't care.
I've tried the Titan pack first... it came up and saw the cards just fine -- but the OS still didn't give me any love.
I've tried 4-5 different Natin driver packs, including the ~Neo installer. Either they see the card, but nothing useful happens ... or when I use the installer, it sees the cards and then the system won't boot. Sometimes it will boot up and say that the NVDA initialization failed. Other times it boots up and kernel panics!
Most recently I've tried the MacVidia drivers ... they just boot up and as soon as the GUI starts, the monitor scrambles and the system hangs.
Unfortunately I can't find any other PCI-E cards around here to try... does anyone have any advice?
Can somebody give me a list of the STOCK 10.4.8 KEXT's I should have in /System/Library/Extensions? I'm wondering if this guys's ISO that I am using moves some of those around or something... perhaps even a package I can download with all new ones?
