  1. Tried to use natit_edited to get full support for 1900GT. Card is recognised as Radeon1900XT, res change is working, even the DVI is working.. BUT NO QE and CI I editet the ATIRadeonX1000.kext and changed the ID Device {0x724b}, no luck. ATI Alopias extensions is loaded, but ATIRadeonX1000.kext not. Am I doing something wrong? I am using JaS 10.4.8. with semthex kernel, updating kernel doesnt work. There must be something wrong with editing the ATIRadeon kext. Any advice welcome. NeoPheus installer gives blue screen after boot, Problem solved, my fault. I put only ID Device in the string, it has to be ID Device and Vendor ID together as one string. For my 1900gt it is 0x724b1002. So now the 1900gt is 99% supported using natit_edit. Both DVI works, extended desktop works, full acceleration. Detect display loose signal.
  2. Great job, the scene is still alive. I wonder if this somehow help us to get better ati support i.e..
  3. Ok Bofors, so what actually makes the difference between Intel GMA and our ATIs? I mean, Intel GMA950 has Extended desktop support right from the box, because it is used in minis? Right? So using a graphic card from Apple should bring full support? Or these cards wouldnt be even recognised by our hackintoshes? I am a bit confused about this extended support issue. Is EFI the only way how to get full support? Sorry for all those stupid questions, but I'm quite happy with my Core2Duo, just missing the full graphic support.
  4. Hi all, could it be that our problem with extended desktop is somehow related to this? http://www.rutemoeller.com/mp/ibook/ibook_e.html It seems our hackintosh are more kind of iMac and Macbooks than MacPros. Until know I didn't know that Apple locked Extended desktop support for iMacs and Macbooks. Without hack all iMac users get just mirrored desktop, same as us, with limited resolution support. This all is just theory, but .... Don't blame if I am totally wrong, I just want to get things moving, so are we really limited by hacked drivers or is this an apple limitation? Bye folks
