    ATI Radeon HD pkg installers 10.5.x & 10.6

    10.5.4 gives white menu's again (with HD 3850), installing white menu fix = blue screen at end of boot...
  2. Well after a full day of fiddling around with all kind of patches ranging from Callisto to Koverg I finally got my ATI Mobility X600 (PCIe 128 MB) working with QE/CI. For the peepz searching on x600, the most easy method to install this Mobility x600 (device id: 3150) was a installer made by Bimmer(?) for HP zd8000, you can find the post here. I can also choose freely all kind of resolutions within the Display preferences up to the native resolution (1400x1050) from the laptop. It's a branded laptop based on the Compal EAL50 barebone: Mac OS X 10.4.8 [JaS AMD-Intel-SSE2-SSE3 with PPF1 & PPF2] 15" SXGA+ (1400 x 1050) Intel® Pentium M 740 (1,73 Ghz / 2 Mb cache / 533 Mhz FSB) Intel® 915 PM (Alviso) 1024 MB PC-2700 ATI Mobility Radeon X600 128MB (350/200) Optical: DVD+/-RW (dual layer) Western Digital Scorpio 80 GB / 8 MB cache Realtek RTL8169/8110 Family Gigabit Ethernet Intel Pro/Wireless 2915 miniPCI 802.11a/b/g internal So far so good about everything works... Anyway there's one big problem bugging me. When I'm running the highest resolution possible on this laptop, 1400x1050 strange tearing effects start to happen when moving windows or scrolling in windows. I tested loads of different settings and different kexts but without any succes on 1400x1050, with QE/CI enabled they all do the same. This tearing effects obviously don't happen with QE/CI disabled on 1400x1050. Now the strange thing is, on 1280x1024/1280x960 this strange tearing effects are gone. Although I can live with the lower resolution I would really like to use the higher resolution cause it's so much more crisp and offers me more space. Anyone experienced this problems before and found a sollution? My guess is that it has something to do with the videobuffer and the higher resolution requiring too much data, but not sure. 2 images below showing the tearing issues: left when scrolling in a window (partly screwed) and right when dragging a window (totally torn apart). When opening a new window (window loosing focus) or sizing it down/up it's back to how it should be.
