  1. Phew, it was a bumpy ride, but I finally managed to get my X1950Pro to work under Snow Leopard 10.6.5 The exact model of my card is 512MB Dual DVI AGP Saphire Radeon X1950 Pro http://www1.sapphiretech.com/id/products/p...d=168&grp=2 Currently, at start-up Natit.ext recognize it as ATY, Prionace (7280 vendor code) I've tried various methods including: * Installing the original Bronya 10a504 driver :: this resulted in screens painted in solid gray that strangely enough still featured a moving mouse cursor * Then I tried the minimal patching method proposed here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/lofiversi...hp/t223631.html which is also used in the recent prepackaged drivers uploaded by Plan3r http://goo.gl/mj1lb This method is reported to work by many users, but on my machine it resulted in gray screens (no mouse this time) I've tried it with or without the jaminmc extensions: http://goo.gl/qatKD * Finally, I noticed a recently uploaded driver for X1950GT that was based on the Bronya's stuff: http://www.kexts.com/view/721-ati_radeon_x...nly_10.6.5.html With some binary diff-ing and investigation I was able to produce a similar updated Bronya driver for 10.6.5, but for X1950Pro cards. QE/CI is enabled and there should be no difference in the final performance of the different methods since this driver still makes minimal modifications to the vanilla mac os extensions. * README: Download, unpack and run Install.command If anything goes wrong, boot in single user mode and execute Restore.command X1950_Bronya_10.6.5.zip
