  1. [Help] Installing Callisto

    Please help me i want to know how to instal Callisto using VI i do not understand the steps given by callisto as i have zoro knowledge of Vi commands. i have managed to instal ToH 10.5 Mac OSX every things works except mic and grahics card . i m not getting the correct resolution. here are my specs Intel P4 3.0 Ghz Display: LCD samsung Graphics: ATI Radeon Xpress 200 (inbuilt) Audio is Realtek HD i found kext for graphics by Callisto but i cannot execute teh command in VI as i dont have any knoledge about it. here i m pasting the instruction some one please elaborate it assuming dummies.i dont understand anything from step 7 onwards. 1.I have typed this out of my head, so if something is incorrect, let me know, ok? å 2.Download the file to the Desktop (surely you know how to download, no?) Safari will download and unzip the archive into Callisto_latest. 3.Start a new terminal window from Applications->Utilities 4. cd ~/Desktop 5. cd Callisto_latest or wherever the archive was decompressed. 6. vi CallistoHAL.kext/Contents/Info.plist 7. Replace my own PCI device ID with yours under the IOPCIMatch key (4150 is mine...) Don't tell me you don't know how to use vi? Try nano or Textedit then. 8. If your DFP monitor is detected as CRT by the driver, you can try to hard-code the EDID string of your monitor. Use the Monitor Asset Manager (or any other way) to retrieve your 128 byte HEX value string. When using MAM, you only need the actual hex values do not include line numbers (00:, 10:, 20:, etc). 9. Next open the Callisto_latest folder on your desktop, then right mouse click on Callisto.kext and left click on Show Package Contents. Open the Contents folder and there you will see Info.plist. 9. Double click on Info.plist file and it *should* open in Property List Editor. Click on the arrow next to the Root, then arrow next to the IOKitPersonalities, then next to the CallistoMatch. 10. You will see a key called MONITOR_TYPE,EDID. Double click on it to edit it and replace the MONITOR_TYPE with DFP so it says DFP,EDID or with CRT,EDID for a CRT screen. 11. In the value field of the same key replace the hex values there with the ones from your EDID, making sure that the < and > remain on the ends. You will see my original value there, it's the EDID for Apple Cinema Display 20" . Once done, save the file with File/Save. 12. Here's an imaginary EDID string, just so you see how it looks like: 00 FF FF FF FF FF FF 00 10 AC 19 A0 4C 56 52 31 0D 10 01 03 80 2B 1B 78 EE EE 91 A3 54 4C 99 26 0F 50 54 A5 4B 00 81 80 71 4F 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 7C 2E 90 A0 60 1A 1E 40 30 20 36 00 B2 0E 11 00 00 1A 00 00 00 FF 00 48 46 37 33 30 36 33 52 31 52 56 4C 0A 00 00 00 FC 00 44 45 4C 4C 20 32 30 30 37 57 46 50 0A 00 00 00 FD 00 38 4C 1E 53 0E 00 0A 20 20 20 20 20 20 00 33 13. It is absolutely important that you do not miss any characters in your EDID string, and that it is exactly 128 bytes long. Also have in mind that the above procedure is ONLY for non-Mobility owners, Mobility owners should not do this, your settings come from the BIOS. 14. sudo mv Callisto* /System/Library/Extensions/ (enter your password when prompted) sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/Callisto* (enter your password when prompted) sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/Callisto* (enter your password when prompted) We might need to clean up some of the display settings files, so proceed with the following inside the terminal window: sudo rm -f /Library/Preferences/com.apple.window* rm -f ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost/com.apple.window* rm -f ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost/com.apple.pref* Also remove any display settings in your com.apple.Boot.plis file, for example: <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1280x1024x32</string> This file is in the /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/ folder. Before you reboot, make sure you remove the Extensions.mkext and Extensions.kextcache, so that system refreshes those and include Callisto: sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache Reboot and hope all goes well. If it does, you will see your screen's default resolution (whatever that is based on the EDID). Go to your Display Preferences and try changing a resolution in there. If you do not see new resolutions in Display Preferences, you did not follow the instructions above to the letter or the driver does not work properly on your computer, go back and try again. When you change the resolution and get a picture, congratulate yourself. Else, if you get a black screen, don't just click with the mouse like mad. Try using the cursor up and down key to switch between other modes and see if that brings the image back. If there's no image at all, read the Troubleshooting section for possible solutions. If those fail then the driver does not work for you. Boot into single user mode (that's -s switch in boot prompt) and remove the two KEXT files...sorry it didn't work. If you mess up your OS, don't blame me, you should've read the F.A.Q. first.
