  1. Hi, Using information from all the above posts, I can boot without a kernel panic, however it won't get past the "startlogin.app" line during boot. Can anyone get this working?
  2. Hey Guys, You are not alone! I'm running an x205-sli3. Pretty much same setup as the sli6 (dual sli 8600gt, etc). Anyway, I've been trying to get at least my resolution at 1680x1050, and could never get the right EFI strings. I also get the kernel panics as soon as I try to use an injector on NVhal50. My base install is Kalyway 10.5.2. I'm going to give your strings a try, and try to figure out how to properly do the boot flag. Thanks for the very informative post, and please post back if you find anthing out! I'll post back when/if I can get my cards recognized and 1680x1050. Now, if only someone could get the onoard wireless card to work (as well as sound). FYI - It's the detail tab, Location paths, not Device path.
  3. Hi, Has anyone been able to get the video properly working, or at least at a proper resolution (1680x1050) on the Toshiba x205-sli laptop? It has dual 8600GT (SLi) with 512MB of (shared?) RAM. Can anyone provide any assistance in getting the video functional on this specific latop? Thanks, Thorne
  4. Leopard on Toshiba x205

    Hi, I've successfully installed using the Kalyway 10.5.2 install dvd, on an x205-sli3. However, I've never been able to get the video cards working at a decent resolution. This laptop does have dual 8600GT. A single 8600GT on a separate desktop is recognized and works out of the box. Why won't the SLi on the laptop work? I realize apple drivers do not support SLi, but why can't it be supported via nvkush, natit, nvinject, etc. Thanks.

    Hey Slice, I can kextload ATIRadeon9700.kext using 2.4.6. If I kextload ATIRdeon9700.kext using 2.4.7, it hangs at the same spot as my previous post. AGPATI: aperture [f0000000, 02000000]

    Will try that tonight and post results.
  8. New AGPGart

    Hey Slice, The only way I could get it to boot with 247 was by removing ALL of the ATI kexts. Using the ATIRadeon9700.kext, it would stop at the same point, without the link errors. I was using IONDRVFramebuffer in ATIRadeon9700GA. Here is the ioreg and dmesg... AGPGart 2.4.7 only, no ATI or Callisto. Thanks! ioregThorne.247.txt.zip dmesgThorne.247.txt.zip And just in case you are wondering, here's what the system sees for the Display: Display: Type: Display Bus: AGP VRAM (Total): 128 MB Vendor: ATI (0x1002) Device ID: 0x4e50 Revision ID: 0x0000 Kernel Extension Info: No Kext Loaded Displays: Display: Resolution: 1024 x 768 Depth: 32-bit Color Core Image: Not Supported Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Quartz Extreme: Not Supported

    Here are some logs: Boot with Original AGPGart with Callisto (b.003) (and without Callisto) OriginalAGPGart.zip Boot with your AGPGart (2.4.6) and Callisto (b.003) (and withouth Callisto) SliceAGPGart246.zip

    So - are the problems fixable? Will the mobility 9600 (4e50) ever work in full AGP acceleration mode? Can I send you any log files to help?
  12. New AGPGart

    Worked fine for the PCI -> AGI bridge on my HP Pavilion zx5280. However, if I add Callisto, it will not boot to the user interface (not even a blue screen). Without Callisto (b.005) installed, it will boot into the user interface, and uses the ATI 9700 kext - but no CI and QE support, and I can't change the resolution.
  13. SoundMax Audio Problem

    Thanks Slice! Well, believe me, if I could find it using the search functionality on the board, I would not have posted the question. I will go try out the driver in your linked post now. EDIT: Hey Slice - Copied the kext to /System/Library/Extensions, set appropriate permissions, and rebooted. Sound is working now. THANKS! -Thorne

    Anche io ho questo audio. Come lo posso fare funzionare? uphuck 1.4i r2 Notebook: HP Pavilion zx5280 Chipset: ATI RS300 SoundMax Integrated Audio (SB200?): VEN_1002 & DEV_4341
  15. SoundMax Audio Problem

    Hey there, I can confirm this is correct. I have an HP Pavilion zx5280. It has an ATI chipset (RS300). The integrated audio is indeed SoundMAX, VEN_1002 & DEV_4341. So, how do we get this working? Anyone?
