In Topic: OpenGL only Works AFTER Single User

13 July 2011 - 05:11 PM

I am using the 10.6.7 kexts for IOPCIFamily and AppleACPI because even with the npci=0×2000 boot flag, I was stuck at PCI configuration begin. ATY_Init is completely unneeded btw, there is no difference.

You're right, ATY_Init is unneeded, so I got rid of it. I'm using the original IOPCIFamily and AppleACPI kexts from lion but also using the npci=0×2000 boot flag

I attached my kernel logs. Without the -f -v flags, running something that uses OpenGL gives me the following error:

NVDA(OpenGL): Channel exception! exception type = 0xd = GR: SW Notify Error

I believe I have a very similar problem! I too have a Geforce GTX570 (vendor: MSI) and any process that I think involves OpenGl would make my computer unresponsive. Opening any video game or most flash applications would freeze the computer. My chipset model is currently displayed as "unknown" even after editing GF100HAL.kext and installing ATY_Init kext. The graphics card is, however, recognized as an NVIDIA card and other than these issues I have full resolution options and I believe QE is enabled (have transparent menubar, dashboard ripple effect, etc).

I tried booting the OS with the -v -f flags and it seems to fix the problem (games and flash videos work), though obviously this is an inconvenient solution.

In Topic: VIA VT1708S 7.1

Has anybody had any success getting the optical out to work on VT1708s with Mohamed's posted kexts?
Only the analog outputs are working for me. Selecting the optical out does not output any sound for me and when I try to play a song in iTunes, the sound output always reverts to the green analog output even when I have nothing plugged into the analog ports.

I updated to 10.6.6 with no apparent issues so far.
I downloaded the combo update, reinstalled the legacy kernel (shouldn't be necessary), reinstalled the graphics drivers, and rebooted successfully with the new app store application now greeting me in the dock.

AlohaCab - I received the cables today and they are very well constructed and work fantastically! Much thanks!
