  1. ATI Radeon HD4350 PCIe

    Finally, I got it working too (XFX 4350 with monitor on DVI port, full res 1920x1080). Seems to me that the problem was in netkas bootloader. If you use either some EFI strings in com.apple.boot.plist, or a custom DSDT.aml, the bootloader does not inject ATI device properly. So I got rid of my DSDT and deleted device-properties from com.apple.boot.plist, and it worked! I used kexts from mcgrath's post above, they seem to work best. I have some newer kexts, but they just produce garbled image.
  2. ATI Radeon HD4350 PCIe

    I followed mcgrath instructions, but haven't been able to boot. There is no kernel panic, but the boot process stops right at the moment it's supposed to switch to the desktop. I also have a DSDT because I need it for my board (Asus P5QL-E) to function properly, could that be the problem? Other than that, my card is a XFX 4350, maybe it only works with some particular brands (Sapphire?).
  3. ATI Radeon HD4350 PCIe

    Same here, the X2000 kext from 10.6.2 with added pci-id causes kernel panic all the time. I tried with X2000 from 10.6.0 - that one did not cause kernel panic, but couldn't initialize the display properly, and the boot process got stuck. I think we just need to get the right version of that kext to make it work. Can anyone who got it working post their X2000 kext?
  4. GeForce 9600 GT natively supported in Mac OS X 10.5.6

    Worked for me on 10.5.6 retail with XFX 9600GT 512. But sometimes I get display corruption (garbled screen) for a second, for example when I drag a window around. It only lasts for a second, or even less, but it is very irritating. Anyone knows what causes this problem?
  5. I have this board running 10.5.6 retail. There are just two things that dont work: HDMI output (I'm still trying to fix it), and onboard Intel gigabit ethernet (I simply disabled it and added a cheap Realtek ethernet card).
  6. In my case, it looks like the second AppleIntelFramebuffer is detected, but the display attached to it is not. I'm also getting some "family specific matching fails" errors with GFX0 in system.log. And another strange thing, there is one other GMA 950 display adapter at the address 00020001. I created Device section for it in dsdt, and gets detected as GFX1. But it has device id 0x27a6 so stock GMA 950 kext doesn't recognize it correctly.
  7. Does anyone know how to get secondary display to work with dsdt patch? I have an Abit il90-MV mainboard, i945GT chipset, GMA950 device 0x27a2. The board has VGA and HDMI output (HDMI can work in DVI mode). So, without the patch, I have both primary (VGA) and secondary (DVI) display working, same picture on both, limited to 1024x768. With the patch, both seem to work during boot, and then when the driver loads, DVI gets no signal and VGA keeps working, at proper resolution (1680x1050). System profiler shows "No display connected" on first Display Connector, and correctly detected analog monitor on second. I'd really like to use DVI, since the VGA output at this resolution is very blurry. I tried adding another Device in the dsdt, but that didn't help at all...
