  1. [How To] X800 XL set up with working Display Manager and QE/CI

    If your installing from a 10.4.6 DVD that is truly 10.4.5 with Combo Update and your in need of .5 kexts to make QE work... use Pacifist (http://www.charlessoft.com/) to extract the ati kexts from the installer package on the CD, worked for me. (I got black screen with the .6 kexts). Callisto 008 and ATI Radeon x800xl PCIE, on 10.4.6 Jas DVD. OKAY, HERE IS EXACTLY HOW TO GET THE 10.4.5 KEXTS OFF YOUR 10.4.6 JAS DVD (and probably all others) Step 1. Download Pacifist. http://www.charlessoft.com/Pacifist.dmg Step 2. Open Pacifist, then select 'Open Package', the file you want is OSinstall.mpkg, you can find it it under /System/Installation/Packages/ on your CD. Step 3. Nagivate down to Contents of EssentialSystemSoftware, Conents of EssentialSystemSoftwareGroup, Contents of Essentials.pkg, System, Library, Extensions. Step 4. Select the kexts you want, in this all the ATI kexts. Click the 'Extract To...' button. Voila! 10.4.5 kexts for patching. I'll upload patched kexts later when i figure out exactly which ones are needed. Note: Originally I left the 10.4.6 ATI kexts, and just replaced the 9700 ones, but that resulted in black screen with mouse syndrome, so be sure to replace all the 10.4.6 ati kexts.
