    ATIRadeon9700 Patch?

    Well, 9A581 has "some" universal 9700 components too. The question is whether or not the GL driver is universal. Can you please run the same commands that I've pasted into this thread 2 or 3 times?

    ATIRadeon9700 Patch?

    I obtained 9A466, and extracted ATIRadeon9700GLDriver.bundle from the BaseSystem pkg. spockers, you must have been looking at something else, because in my copy at least the GL driver is still PPC-only: $ ls -l total 10328 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 5285184 5 Jun 01:06 ATIRadeon9700GLDriver $ file ./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver ./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures ./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver (for architecture ppc): Mach-O bundle ppc ./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver (for architecture ppc64): Mach-O 64-bit bundle ppc64 $ md5 ./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver MD5 (./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver) = bd7cbc9d791a828dd6c208ff22e9a5ae $ The date of June 5 looks right, that was right before WWDC '07.

    ATIRadeon9700 Patch?

    sniperviper, can you run the "file" command on the ATIRadeon9700GLDriver binary in 9A466 as I showed in my above post? I just want to get confirmation that this file is compiled PPC-only in the older Leopard builds as well. (You said it doesn't work, but it's not clear if there's something else wrong.)

    I obtained 9A559 and used Pacifist to extract the ATI drivers. The 9700 GL driver is PPC-only there too. For 9A581: $ cd /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeon9700GLDriver.bundle/Contents/MacOS $ ls -l total 10616 -rwxr-r-x 1 root wheel 5432640 19 Sep 01:40 ATIRadeon9700GLDriver $ file ./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver ./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures ./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver (for architecture ppc): Mach-O bundle ppc ./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver (for architecture ppc64): Mach-O 64-bit bundle ppc64 $ md5 ./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver MD5 (./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver) = 05487c97d7d87d1322911d29824b0a5f $ For 9A559: $ cd 9a559-extract $ cd ATIRadeon9700GLDriver.bundle/Contents/MacOS $ ls -l total 10616 -rwxr-r-x 1 root wheel 5432640 19 Sep 01:40 ATIRadeon9700GLDriver $ file ./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver ./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures ./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver (for architecture ppc): Mach-O bundle ppc ./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver (for architecture ppc64): Mach-O 64-bit bundle ppc64 $ md5 ./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver MD5 (./ATIRadeon9700GLDriver) = 99d39d3714ed1c11c0106c341b31b34a $ So no good news.

    I would maybe try it w/o AGPGart.

    ATIRadeon9700 Patch?

    Reptar, did you replace all of the /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeon9700* extensions and bundles with the 9A559 versions? Or just the main driver? I am speculating that it is the GL driver that's causing the problem with 9A581, but I could be wrong.

    ATIRadeon9700 Patch?

    We have been discussing this in an older post: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=70102 Basically we came to the same conclusion-- the Radeon 9700 GL drivers in Leopard are compiled PPC-only. It would be useful if anyone out there with a copy of an earlier developer build of Leopard could check the following file to see if it's universal or not. /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeon9700GLDriver.bundle/Contents/MacOS/ATIRadeon9700GLDriver
