  1. alla fine ho risolto, si trattava di cancellare il framework openGL e sostituirlo con la versione dei MBP '11.. la prima volta l'avevo solo sovrascritto grazie comunque! però non mi fungono i giochi Steam e Geekbench.. c'è soluzione?

    ..girls... always complaining.. just kidding, obv. about the -x flag: I still get white screen booting with that. so, i guess it's working, but not 100%. About that, if i try to launch Portal from Steam it crashes instantly. Also Geekbench shows heavy suicidal tendencies. I found it's a common problem, fixable injecting the correct framebuffer. Can I quickly convince my hack to use Duckweed?

    disk utils reported that to repair the errors it was necessary to boot with an installation disc and repair from there, in the end i did that way. BTW, seems that i'm a complete idiot : deleting the openGL framework and reappling it after repairing the hard drive fixed hardware acceleration! i score 37,15 fps with Cinebench, so everything seems more than ok to me anyway THANK YOU Andy for your kindness and patience!
  4. salve a tutti in seguito alla morte improvvisa della mia vecchia 4870 ho dovuto prendere una nuova scheda... ho deciso per la Sapphire HD6850, avendo letto ovunque che funziona molto bene e senza problemi con osx... dopo aver installato i kext di 10.6.7 per i MBP 2011 però non funzionava nulla.. fortunatamente ho trovato nei meandri di /S/L/E, e in E/E i kext e l'injector che avevo usato per far funzionare la vecchia scheda (ATI4800injector, Radeon48xxLegacy ed EVOenabler, se non erro). sono arrivato al punto che tutto sembra funzionare, il sistema boota, riconosce entrambi i monitor e posso impostarli alle risoluzioni corrette. però sono senza accelerazione video e non capisco perchè... ho installato i kext decine di volte, riparato permessi e disco, senza esito, sia con GraphicsEnabler Yes che No non cambia nulla.. a questo punto, temo mi sia rimasto qualche altro "residuo" della 4870, ma non ho idea di dove cercare. Prima ancora avevo la 3850, ma non credo di aver provato altre modifiche all'infuori di ATI3800Controller.kext, che però dev'essere andato modificato con l'aggiornamento... qualcuno ha qualche idea? grazie!

    of course i don't have any free hard drive to try a fresh install... i will look for one but i would keep it as last resource. i tried with the above procedure, the package installed fine but i can't see any change... i also updated chamaleon to the kabyls build with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], without result. i verified my hard drive with disk utility and it reports some errors... time to create an osx usb boot drive and i try to correct them... since obviously i currently don't have my snow leopard dvd at home @Dutch: thank you for your tips, but i'm not sure i can apply them, since i don't use a custom DSDT...

    ok... maybe, any hope with injectx method, with your ATI Fix?

    vendor id = ATI (0x1002) product id = 0x6739 i can write those commands blindfolded i think, let's try one more time EDIT: nothing new. maybe something related to com.apple.Boot.plist and smbios.plist? just guessing.. does it matter that, in System Profiler, the card gets recognized as ATI Radeon HD NI40, only in Graphics/Monitor? PCI Cards says that no PCI cards are installed, but the 4870 was recognized also in this section

    i cleaned S/L/Caches and installed the update, but i have no changes. *scratches head* EDIT: in chameleon, first line: Darwin/x86 v5.0.132 - chameleon v2.0_RC4_PCEFI-10.5_AsereBLN r is it too old? maybe and upgate would help?
  9. ATI Radeon 6xxx, working QE/CI

    booting with -x gives and 1 monitor in the top dvi port gives me the white screen. graphics enabler is no in com.apple.boot.plist. without -x it works fine, except for graphical acceleration. in a minute i try those other kexts
  10. ATI Radeon 6xxx, working QE/CI

    great news! i found the guide i used to make work the 4870, so i found the other files i added.. (there were LegacyATI4800Controller.kext and EVOenabler.kext in S/L/E), so i removed them. then once again, i placed the ati kexts from MBP 2011 disc in S/L/E and fixed permission via terminal. after booting with -f -x -v both monitor works and seem to get recognized, i see the mouse pointer and i can move it on both screens, but except for that everything is grey/white. placing the OpenGL framework should fix this? any other suggestions? EDIT: openGL framework replaced, does the same EDIT2: even greater news! booted without options, now works! seems that my hack really hated those old kext. only problem is i don't have QE/CD: no fancy water effect when dropping widgets, no traslucent menu bar.

    tried, no result maybe putting back in E/E the 4800 injector can help? at least to see the desktop, then i could try something more useful.. like reinstalling chamaleon, or [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]...
  12. ATI Radeon 6xxx, working QE/CI

    i used GraphicsEnabler=n -x -v, as you suggested. can't remember if i also tried with just -x -v, but i'll do edit: no result with -x -v, just a white flash and screens goes black/resolution error

    i'm trying with your cd, it hangs after some lines about firewire. i have a pci-e firewire card with Texas Instrument chip, in order to make properly work my M Audio card, it may be a problem? also, it doesn't load AppleRTC and AppleHDAController, don't know if it matters. [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] loading doesn't diplay any major error, at least reading the lines on screen. only in the very last moments i see something about a kext that was unable to load, then the screen goes black so i'm unable to read i'm really thinking about saving what i can and making a new, clean installation, even if i would hate it...

    tried with both AndyBoot and [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]: with AndyBoot loading seems to take forever, i rebooted after ~10 minutes. with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] the system seems to load and work fine, but the DVI monitor goes black and the VGA one dispays a resolution error...
