  1. 8 years and still this driver works on new system,.. Cheers everyone... good old days.
  2. I got this code from Ubuntu forum sudo modprobe -r acer-wmi The link below shows some potential... (specially post #3) http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1704122 Lion, kext is here in case someone wants to test http://www.osx86.net/view/2229-broadcom43225.kext.html

    Broadcom bcm43xx wireless driver [beta]

    Can anyone tell me if this model is ever going to work? I've finished installing Lion on someone else's computer... Name: Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter Device ID: PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4357&SUBSYS_E021105B&REV_01\4&E764662&0&00E1
  4. I see no end to this driver unless iOS lands as main OS on macs (which is the point where apple sales will drop so) i doubt if it can ever happen. By adding x64 Eugene solved many future problems... @Morfy: added you workaround on page1
  5. 1.3b0 is for Leopard 10.5.x & Tiger 10.4.x editions (which does not have x64 obviously) and 1.11b0 is for Snow Leopard 10.6.x edition. You install wrong driver on wrong OS, you on your own
  6. So far development looks "stopped" SOMEHOW, E started responding... at hardware heaven http://www.hardwareheaven.com/mac-os-x-dri...3b0-beta-2.html

    AnVAL (ACPI Loader)

    hmm... I got iAtKoS s3 and choose AnVal (which worked and rest all failed). Upgrading to 10.6.4 worked, updating to that graphics update crashed and upgrading to 10.6.5 also crashed... (since noobs like me were feeded with distroz, its hard to go back to level 1) Now, all i did was extracted your files to OSX drive from WIN (macDrive) and the result is same stuck at ACPI plugin or something power management related Screenshot

    Radeon 5970 Snow Leopard Instructions

    OK, I just screwed up (BADLY) my hdd is dead (meaning nothing is there its BLANK) all my collection of kext is everything is GONE! Fortunately I was able to install OSX, but the damn fan problem is back. NOW, can anyone upload the kext to mediafire? my strings are pretty much same as Spanky (i'm guessing he has same model as mine). I'm on windows for the moment (with macdrive installed) so far, managed to copy ROM to extra and set up com.apple.boot now without OSX start-up, I cannot extract those kext files from DMG EDIT: OK, putting the ROM first solved it BUT kext Utility messed up my system kernel panicing around WT$

    Radeon 5970 Snow Leopard Instructions

    Is there no way to enable second GPU? I was trying to understand this thread http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=101121 hmmm, Netkas showed up here... may have something radeon related aswell? EDIT: Confirmed at IRC, second GPU won't work... for Now (at least). I still have video acceleration problems On windows, I see mplayerC.exe CPU usage max to 6% playing 1080p movie BUT on OSX, it sky rockets CPU and lags entire video (simple words, video acceleration is OFF)

    Radeon 5970 Snow Leopard Instructions

    Well yea, its simple but rather faster if it ever came to that installation and setup point. ok... then maybe when something more complicated need to be done perhaps I guess soon someone will pop an installer that won't ONLY target this model but others aswell. Guess then I'm aborting and limiting this to myself.

    hmmm, since this method of Spanky's works well, Its nice to have installer that automates all steps, BIOS extraction, installing Kexts, setup of card info strings, optimizing etc yeah? I'll try some... http://s.sudre.free.fr/Stuff/PackageMaker_Howto.html

    Not going to happen! AMD already announced removal of "ATI" name on their 6xxx series (which they already announced in their catalyst driver INF files)

    Radeon 5970 Snow Leopard Instructions

    Here is what I'm going to tell you, I have all catalyst drivers installed and when I play any movie (1080p) hardware acceleration offloads CPU by taking processing in Radeon's hand instead of CPU. On XP, I get CPU usage to 1 - 4%!!! and I've ALSO measured GPU usage via MSI After burner (1 to 2% on GPU1 AND 1% on GPU2). I'm having hard time reading responses where hardware acceleration is not given any importance! EDIT: In order to use hardware acceleration, you have to install AVIVO and/or FFDShow (latest if possible) and turn on Hardware acceleration on DXVA video decoder configuration (shortcut exists in start menu\programs\ffdshow). This is for Windows, but on OSX, QuicktimeX, XBMC, mplayer has hardware acceleration and starting from VLC 1.2, OSX versions will have hardware acceleration too! (its currently on feature freeze for 1.1x versions) If you have a sound card that offloads Audio streams like mine, expect same result like mine (1 to 2% CPU usage)
  14. Being sarcastic doesn't help, its just.... "info" If you want to WHEN follow here http://blog.officeformac.com/page/2/ though, leaked RTM or official trials may be out earlier? who knows
