Some software, you will only use once, or not very often at all.
If you're a designer, photographer, illustrator etc, then yes - you should probably support the industry you're in and pay the full asking price.
But if it's something like a tool you need for a small task, then using the trial version is adequate. However, when trials are restrictive, then that's when I go on the hunt for cracks or full versions to install.
However, I do try to always go OpenSource where possible.
I liked the comment earlier about pirating because you can't afford it - but I also feel pirating is also caused by things being over valued; such as Photoshop. Is it "really" worth $700??
And this then goes on for everything. Is an Album with 12 tracks but only 3 are any good really worth the asking price? Are any of Apple's devices "really" worth their asking price? If they were, would there be a purpose for Hackintosh's?
you'll need a framebuffer loaded. I don't know which one is best for your card without having it's rom file, but can tell you it will be named after some kinda monkey you can either input it into your dsdt for each connector (i.e. 4 times for for connector card, as you saw in 5870 thread) or specify it in Chameleon using GE=Yes and AtiConfig=NameOfMonkeyFramebuffer substituting the framebuffer name you are trying. Example:
You likley had issue just using GE=Yes because whatever Framebuffer it choose as default, is not the appropriate one for your card. Right now you are instead not loading a framebuffer other than generic, not a fix, just a different result
I used GE=Yes and AtiConfig=Eulemur
Rebooted and had full screen and correct resolution. Fired up iDVD Player - and walla! It worked
Any idea what the correct Framebuffer is for that card? Only loading the generic one right now which is why your DVD player app won't work. Assume you already tried the easy way using GE=Yes?
Hi eep357, many thanks for your reply.
My hackintosh with patched DSDT had GE=Yes by default.
The screen res was fine, but it was pushed tot he right of my screen. So on the left side of my screen I had about a 2" gap. Even moving the image as far to the left as possible still resulted in a gap.
Switching to GE=No gives me full screen at the correct resltuion, but iDVD crashes.
