#1003372 [How to] Intel GMA 900 done right: full QE/CI for leopard

Posted by mercurysquad on 17 December 2008 - 07:22 PM

What is it? This is an enabler kext which gives your Intel GMA900 (i915) graphic card hardware acceleration (QE/CI) support under Leopard. This is not a patched or modified kext. It is supposed to be used in addition to the GMA950 kexts that come with leopard. Details: There are a lot of patched kexts floating around for GMA900 support in Leopard. dfe aka David Elliott has made a great enabler kext which allows GMA900 cards to use stock GMA950 kexts. This means NO patching or hacking is required and you can keep using Apple software updates and take advantage of updated graphic kexts. How to use - Install these two kexts. Reboot. That's all. This works for all GMA900 device IDs (0x2582, 0x2592, 0x2792) NotesYou must have all stock kexts. If you are using patched kexts currently, please revert all AppleIntelGMA* to the ones that came with your version of Leopard.The framebuffer is old. Some people may be able to use stock framebuffer too, but most often you will need this...

#845209 Experimental Intel SpeedStep kext

New version 1.3.2 is now available! New page for all downloads/bug reports is here. INFO:We have switched to Google Code. Downloads from this post have been removed. Info on this page may be outdated. Everyone's encouraged to use the google code page instead. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- N/2 bus ratio support giving most users <1GHz pstates. Undervolting support, sse2 rtcfix kernel support, direct ctl change, Pstate override, default pstate, bug fixes. Kernels on which it will work: any. Thanks to the help of people over on #xnu-chat, an experimental Intel SpeedStep driver is now available which doesn't require a speedstep kernel (ie. it should work well with sleep kernels and allow you to resume/sleep). It will work on any Intel processor which supports speedstep (including older Pentium M). However, timing might be unstable on older processors (being fixed), so Core or higher is highly...
