  1. fermi/gtx 480/gtx 470

    Same here on my 470. Dang, I used to have one of those. Can anyone else confirm rotation works on a GF104-based card (e.g. 460 and similar)? Also, can someone try all three display ports on a 460? Edit: okay, so nVidia lied to me somewhere along the line. It was my impression all three outputs worked on the Fermi cards (they don't).

    Suck. I can't start testing this out for like 8 hours. Can someone confirm for me if: 1. Rotation works 2. All three monitor ports work simultaneously Thanks in advance
  3. fermi/gtx 480/gtx 470

    Damn, nice find. Why does it only have two outputs, unlike the normal Quadro 4000?

    Could you post the output to ioreg -l ? Also, are you able to rotate your screen? Thanks!

    If someone can use three monitors yet did not use the gfx strings, could you post your ioreg -l output? Thanks. Actually, if you got your card to work without gfx strings (regardless of the number of monitors), ioreg -l would still be useful.

    At last! Success getting a GTX 470 to work with Snow Leopard (and to be honest, I don't even remember the steps I used to make it work), but I've got two very bothersome issues: -Rotation doesn't work. -Only two outputs work. I need to use three monitors in portrait mode with of this card, but I've had no luck so far. Has anyone managed either of these feats?

    Arrgh...been struggling with this for over a week now... Could somebody please update the first post to plainly state this DOES NOT work on a GTX 460/465? Stating it *might* work on a 460 or a 465 in any form or fashion has made me lose about $90 returning both aforementioned cards. I even managed to flash the 465 successfully with a 470 ROM (though it did not unlock the shaders nor the nonexistent "extra" RAM), but on both the 460 and 465, I got black screens with WindowServer consuming 100% of the CPU. Just ordered a GTX 470...let's hope this works...
  8. [Install] Dell Latitude E6400 E6500

    Look back a page - I managed to get it working under 10.5.7, and I thought someone reported success under 10.5.8. I don't have a reason to upgrade to SL yet, so I'm staying put with sleep + CI/QE under 10.5.7

    I've got Sleep + QE/CI working at about 95%. Every once in a while it will refuse to sleep on me, but I think it's usually due to trying to wake and then immediately sleep the machine. Lol, yea, that's where I'm at. If I could find the Natit 0.2 source, it might give me some ideas about this problem. In the meantime, don't forget to disable "deep sleep".

    Go here to get the audio kexts that allow volume control and that don't crackle. Unrelated Edit: The computer is actually sleeping - but it is simultaneously preparing for "deep sleep": hibernation. My advice is that until we discover how to shut down/restart properly, disable deep sleep since it will want to shut down the computer.

    I am...but I'm not familiar with this issue. Why shouldn't we use injectors?
  12. [Install] Dell Latitude E6400 E6500

    Under 10.5.7, I've managed to get the sleep menu option to hibernate my computer - and wake up successfully: -Place my modified DSDT.aml (from an E6500) in the root of your hard drive and make sure you're using a version of Chameleon that supports such. If you have an E6400, try using the IOUSBFamily.kext file mentioned above first. -Use Natit 0.2, NOT NVEnabler. NVEnabler admits somewhere that it doesn't support the 140M, so it probably doesn't support our 160M either. -Kill any AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement disablers OR install SleepEnabler.kext. If you're using IOUSBFamily.kext, don't kill the disabler - use SleepEnabler.kext. Remaining issues on my laptop: -LAN does not work on wake up. However, my Dell 1510 wireless does. -Audio buttons do not affect the volume under VoodooHDA. The audio chipset seems to be an ALC889A (8086:293e), so perhaps I simply need the right driver. -Shutdown/Restart do not work with injectors for the 160M. Perhaps we need to look at the source code to see why it won't let us shut down. DSDT.aml.zip SleepEnabler.kext.zip

    I have sleep partially working under 10.5.7 - I can use Slice's IOUSBFamily.kext files to get my laptop to go to sleep, but it will not wake for me now. This method might also be promising (or it might manage to do the same thing as Slice's method), or it could be possible that NVEnabler.kext doesn't allow me to wake my computer back up. Any ideas? Edit: It looks like it's actually hibernating and not resuming after applying either Slice's kext or the equivalent DSDT patch. I also did a HPET patch, which allowed me to run AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext without using Disabler.kext, but I'm still not getting sleep - just non-resumable hibernation.

    If anyone has been having issues with getting the keyboard layout to work at the same time as the trackpad... I merged the ApplePS2Controller.kext from iAtkos (which handles the keyboard correctly) with one earlier in the thread that handled the touchpad correctly, and now I have a proper keyboard layout + a working touchpad. The kext earlier in the thread (along with some I've seen on other osx86 installs) is hardcoded to a ISO/European keyboard layout, while the kext on iAtkos uses the ANSI/U.S. keyboard layout (it might also be hardcoded...I'm not sure). Has anyone managed to get sleep/wake or shutdown/restart working in 10.5.7 at the same time as the graphics card? ApplePS2Controller.kext.zip
  15. help installing 10.5

    10.5.3 (10.5.2 Kalyway -> Jas) is working just fine on my P5QL-E. What I remember having to tweak was applying Chameleon to the setup, and turning on ACPI and AHCI anywhere I could find them in the BIOS. The Atheros L1e integrated NIC is junk - you'll need to get a PCI card to replace it (the Realtek 8169 Gigabit NIC worked right out of the box), and the ALC888 audio chipset is a pain to get working - I threw so many things at it that I couldn't tell you what made it work. It's too bad I still can't get optical out. If you're looking for dual booting with XP, you'll need to find the proper drivers to make XP work off of an AHCI drive configuration insead of an IDE configuration. If you're looking for triple booting with Ubuntu, the drivers to get the Atheros working are such a pain that you'll wish you owned a Realtek card already.
