hey everyone, i have a new build im churning out, all is well, except for sound and video, vanilla kernel but most importantly video.


Video is corrupted and black / purple when osx loads


can only get clean video in safe boot.



I installed the kext straight from the installer DVD.


I have:


Leo4all v2


ecs - 945gct-m/1333


his radeon 2600 xt


Core 2 duo 1.8


sata hd


2 gigs of ram






so this is what system profiler tells me about the video

As far as vanilla kernel goes, think im fine with the moded kernel for now, gotta get video working.
