  1. ATI Radeon HD pkg installers 10.5.x & 10.6

    I am happy to report that my ATI 2900 Pro is working fully with dual screen, res change, and QE/CI. It shows up in profiler as 2900 XT (Vanilla) with device ID 0x9400. I decided to take the plunge instead of waiting for answers. I used the same ATI_NEW files and updated to 10.5.5. It is still a blur on how I got things to work. - Initially after the upgrade, I deleted the same files in the extension folder and copied the new ones in. Repaired permissions and rebooted. Got screen full of snow and blocks. - Then I tried the old kext files I backed up. Won't even boot into GUI. - Then I tried copying back all the new kext except the natit.kext. Was able to boot normally but no QE/CI. - Finally I tried the new natit.kext again except this time I did a chmod -R 755 * and chown -R root:wheel * in the extension folder. This time full QE/CI. I think my mistake was I only did repair permission from diskutil which did not fix natiti.kext. Now everything works and no freeze problem at all. I suspect your problem may or may not be related to the graphics entensions. Maybe try it with older natit without QE/CI and see if the freeze still happens.

    Does 2900 Pro Device ID 0x9400 work with 10.5.5 with QE/CI? Searched everywhere and could not find any hints. Don't dare to update from 10.5.4 until this is confirmed. Thanks in advance.
  3. [How To] X800 XL set up with working Display Manager and QE/CI

    I have an X800XL with device ID exactly the same as used in the procedure. The process worked great in Tiger, but not in Leopard. I repeated the same process again with a clean set of drivers installed from Leopard DVD, the resolution change works fine just like before, but I can't enable QE\CI. Can someone help with Leopard experience?
