  1. Oh no, either your mainboard or your graphics adapter seems to be broken. Test another graphics adapter, maybe the one integrated on the CPU. At least your BIOS should be displayed without errors. Great pictures btw.
  2. Mouse Lag (GraphicsEnabler=Yes)

    I've got the same problem. It has nothing to do with mouse acceleration. Every some seconds the mouse (and every other input device) hangs for about a second. If I use GraphicsEnabler=Yes, then I have these lags, no QE/CI, and a sluggish system. No dual screen, but no complete system freezes. The automatically loaded framebuffer is Duckweed. With GraphicsEnabler=No, there are no lags, but also no QE/CI. Dual screen works. After about 15 minutes the system freezes with a still movable mouse cursor.

    Here are the drivers, modified as described above: Os X 10.6.4 ATI Radeon X1950 Pro (7280): 10_6_4_x1950_7280.zip Os X 10.6.4 ATI Radeon X1950 GT (7288): 10_6_4_x1950_7288.zip

    Success! I followed my second guess and it works perfectly. Thank you, cyberchunk! (Alas, I'd really like to know how you figured out to replace 0x81FA6072 with 0x81FA8072. The 72 might be the 7280 from the device ID, but I'd never had thought of that, as the values in the hex editor are switched (0x81FA8072) and the leading 81F8 doesn't tell me much. Did you randomly scanned for 80's and 72's in the obvious kexts?) Thank you!
  5. Working X1950 & Snow Leopard 10.6.4

    Hello cyberchunk, thank you for your writeup. I've got a Radeon X1950 GT, so my primary device ID is 7288. I tried your method in favor of the last one in Bronya's thread, but I'm getting kernel panics. Now that I'm not sure if the hex editing fits my needs, would you please tell me how you figured the replacement of 0x60 with 0x80 (s/0x81FA6072/0x81FA8072/g) out? I've got two guesses, what to do: 1) Just use your value and think of something else or 2) use 88 instead of 80, as 7280 is yours, and 7288 is mine. Besides of the guess for the correct value, I really would like to know how to figure these (hex editing) things out by myself. Thanks in advance.
  6. Work x1950gt pro ! Dev_ID = 0x72801002 and 0x72881002 !

    Thank you Bronya! Your driver works! (apart from 1 or 2 glitches here and there;) I used the vanillakernel that was 9.2.2. The mach_kernel is 9.5.0 and works fine. Thank you very very much, you are great!

    Here is a picture of the kernel panic I mentioned above. Maybe it provides some useful information.
  8. Work x1950gt pro ! Dev_ID = 0x72801002 and 0x72881002 !

    Hello people, I still do not get it right. I have a Saphirre x1950 GT (PCI Express, 256MB, id 7288) and tried various combinations of Bronya's driver for 10.5.5 and 10.5.3. If I only install Bronya's driver for 10.5.5 I get a kernel panic. If I use ATIRadeon* from Bronya's 10.5.3 package in combination with the rest of the 10.5.5 package, I get a blue screen and a mouse cursor and nothing happens. I am really confused about which are the right files for my graphics card. Please help me, I really would appreciate it. Thank you. Edit: After testing some more last night, I think that it is ATIRadeonX1000.kext which is causing the kernel panic at boot up. I tested all of the other files in various combinations, without success, but without kernel panic, too.
