  1. ATIRadeon9700 Patch?

    I hate to rain on all of your parades, but 1) your wasting your time as decided by everyone else who has tried this and netkas. 2) You'll probably have a better sense of what has been done in the past if you read the whole thread, otherwise your just going to be wasting time doing things that other people have already tried.
  2. Codec doesn't dump right

    When I load up knoppix and follow the steps in the faq it doesn't line up right. I don't have a codec#0 I have a codec#92 (or something like that) inside that is two other files that I tried to dump and they don't look anything like what other dumps look like. The specs: Core 2 Duo E6420 Asus P5VDC-MX 2.0 Realtek AC97 Sound - ALC883 Geforce FX 5200 Any ideas? Thanks!
  3. Hey, I just finally got my 10.5.1 Kalyway installed but if I use the Vanilla kernel and acpiplatform it restarts like 3 seconds into booting. Any ideas on why vanilla kernel wouldn't work? Specs: Core 2 Duo E6420 Asus P5VDC-MX 2.0 Bios 0809 2gigs of Corsair Valuselect DDR2 ATI 9800XT It's a via chipset board. Is perhaps my problem because it's a Via board and not an intel chip'd board? Also, what does "-legacy" do. I can boot fine with non vanilla kernel and -legacy, won't boot without -legacy. Thanks in advance.

    Is the latest version AGPGart 2.4.9?
  5. ATIRadeon9700 Patch?

    To clear up some confusion. 321_Radeon.zip is the 9700 files from the 9a321 build of Leopard.
  6. ATIRadeon9700 Patch?

    Has anyone tried what Goop was saying except simply just taking the GLDriver from the X1000 bundle in 9b18, renaming it and replacing the one in the GLDriver for the 9700 bundle? I assume you still have to edit the 9700 kext to make sure the correct *x******** values are in it. Also, has anyone tried just adding the device id of there card into the X1000 kext? Just a thought, I can't try any of this stuff until I get back home in January. Also, has anyone tried Goops method but taking the GLDriver from the 9700GL bundle from 321 and putting it in the 9b18 9700GL bundle?

    It's like people don't even read the thread or something....
  9. ATIRadeon9700 Patch?

    Does anyone have any idea on how to find the dependecies for all the files related to the graphics in 9a321. I think that would probably be the best place to start is to find out all the files required for the driver/graphics in 9a321.
  10. ATIRadeon9700 Patch?

    Spockers, Can you give us a status update on your progress? The last I read you booted a modified version of 9a321. Have you made any further progress?
  11. ATIRadeon9700 Patch?

    As the text is flying by on loading the dvd it will randomly restart near a spot that says "TMSafetyNet" or something of the sort. Meaning, I can't even get to a prompt that lets me install the os with BrazilMac. I have read that other people have the same problem and I think it is an issue with the BrazilMac patch on certain systems. Perhaps just a fact of life. I would probably install it with Pacifist just because I don't feel like patching a dvd over and over, it's just too much work for little benefit. I actually have a mac and I'm converting my Vista machine to a mac (trying to) because I can't stand windows anymore.
  12. ATIRadeon9700 Patch?

    I can't install the 9a321 image because if I try to make a patched dvd out of it with the BrazilMac method my computer will just infinitely restart while it tries to load the DVD. Although, I guess I could try it with Pacifist though huh?
  13. ATIRadeon9700 Patch?

    Swapping out the 581 loginwindow with the 321 loginwindow causes ReportCrash to throw errors for atleast a minute, then I stopped watching. Update: I checked the crashlog and it is asking for some files in the "PrivateFrameworks" folder. So i grabbed it off the 321 disk and put it where it needed to be and it crashed again asking for yet another PrivateFramework so I just grabbed all of the privateframeworks off the 321 disk and added only the ones that didn't exist in the 581 PrivateFrameworks folder and it starts the loginwindow app and then crashes, starts the app again and then crashes again. Didn't check the log again yet.
  14. ATIRadeon9700 Patch?

    I have bundled some kexts and the framework if anyone wants to PM me to get them. They are from the 9a321 build and are Universal. I didn't have much luck with them but I don't know very much about getting them to work other than replacing the ID and repairing permissions.

    So is that the final nail in the coffin for this card?
