I too have a x3100. I have had a great time mixing the right FB with the 10.5.1,2,4, kext http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/style_emo...olleyes.gif,but not 5+ . after doing the logic on how to even get it to work, it made me realize with reading old archives of this site (archive.org) and google caches. I would think this place should have a torrented version by version kext listings. Ajax into the blog so people can drag and drop, and there wouldn't be any server space needed. it could be peer based. I needed a certian group of kexts for the 000c version. I can attach mine if you want. it is from origionally from a 10.5.2 leo4all disc I believe, but keeping the kexts (X3100 + the X3100FB) I read somewhere that you could add a paragraph of code within the kext, and using windows, find out what EXACT video port the device id on the Svideo Specifically. as I recall, (kinda fuzzy)I read You MAY be able to dupe another port with some code copy and paste inside the kext. and add it as another device. the FB might have the basic code in it already because the default resoultion for the driver to even getting the right resoultion to work into the x3100 kext and not the frame buffer. My Powerbook G3 bronze has a Svideo port on it, (PPC of course)(10.3 was max) but I slammed 10.4 in it, and its kexts read the port, (of course its ATI, and PPC) but, I believe since this is object programming, it should be pretty easy to do some kext compairson between the rage128 (what I have) that has VGA out, Svideo out, and Such. Maybe even have something as a cloned dependancy to pick up the port. Does Darwin Linux have any input with Svideo with this video card? It could also give us a clue. the other is NEXT. I found a NEXT iso floating around. I figured I would toss that Idea out for all those book worms. Are they the code used for drivers in OSX? Darwin has close, but significant differences. Linux is still another ball park yet, but again, we get a clue. Displays working for Newbies: Here's my x3100 and FB kexts for those out there. Best is to have none first and use the -x switch to get around, then install SwitchResX from the web (or pre download it), Add a custom resolution cloning the 1024 and then type 1280x800 as a resolution, and then making sure the other numbers reset themselves to the new size, add then making current config Active 1280, 800 Front Porch 64, 3 Sync Width 128, 7 Back Porch 192, 20 scan Rate 47.77 57.561 . I clicked the positive sync on the right, and have the pixel clock at I Heard you could put in the darwin prompt, in the boot flags put "Display Mode"="1200x800x32@60" btw, anyone know of a freeware alt of SRX?

Hello MeDevil, I have been following this osx86 thing for quite a while, and am in the habbit of converting Dells and Custom intel's and AMD's. Got One here for the Amd Post that I haven't had fun clearing up. Symtoms: install disk takes 10 minutes to start if SATA is enabled in the bios. Disk utility has a fit for partitioning, but is able to see the devices. Total, I think to get to the disk utility is about 20-25 minutes. If it is disabled, I can boot off of a ATA CD, and get there without any devices, which seems to put along at normal speed. I notice that I can't master/slave on PATA to maybe get it on a IDE interface. so, I set to look at your progress. I have tried many different variables (usb drive install, patching many dvd's - now in circular cabinet, ) So just for giggles, I throught I would throw this up here, and see if anyone actually got this mobo to work 100% because I have seen way to many models close to it work so well. questions: NVIDIA nForce4 SLI - is this nforce chipset working on this motherboard? : If so, is there a kext that I can drop using "kext helper" If so, which sucess story can you guys point out to me to complete this. if not, i noted on another insanely mac post that there are SATA pci-e and sli sata cards that can work right out of the box. any suggestions? Is the work in this blog is including this board SATA and IDE with no problems? if any of these are answerable, ( hopefully) I can actually spend some time making it work. If not, Damn. Linux or windows this box and get it out off of my desk! all HCL lists aren't listing this motherboard and biostar aren't even seen out on blogs much (AMD specifically), and there isn't schmidt for search results on anything other than the NFORCE Sata issue. Google, here, and 5 other sites don't have squat.
