Callisto Quirks

11 May 2006 - 11:33 PM

I know Callisto is covered in a number of different places. However I did not find answers to this specific question.. excuse me please if i missed it.

I have a thinkpad t42. the lcd supports resolutions up to 1400x1050 in windows.

without the callisto patch, the system will boot up nicely into 1024x768 and have the normal problem most everyone else has with pixelization and odd boxes appearing.

However, the default driver used supports quartz extreme. There is one person who said that the mere indication tha tit was supported does not mean it is so.
However, Using an application "Desktop Manager" allows the user some extended functionality if quartz extreme is supported and is conspicuously missing this functionality if it is not.

So my point is that.. The Callisto patch works for me.. (somewhat). I am able to install it and switch to 1280x1024 without any problems. Other screen resolutions seem to give me problems.. either refresh problems or black screen. however, the calliso driver/patch does not appear to support the quartz extreme functionality. Also the video car memory is incorrectly detected at 64MB with callisto and correctly at 128MB without.

Has anyone solved this problem. I am aware of the note on the callisto site.
Does Callisto provide 2D/3D acceleration?
No, this is a low-level driver and framebuffer, acceleration is provided by IOAcceleration class, use existing Apple KEXTs (ATIRadeon*.plugin/bundle) for that.

Still .. has anyone gotten past these problems. Id really like to run at 1280x1024 or 1400x1050 without the pixelization and with the obviously supportable quartz functionality.
