Well i've done about as much searching as I can figure but this is all a little new to me, well acquainted with OSX, windows and about 10 linux distros - so don't give me any kid gloves ;P


I've tried using all the ATI.kexts of of the DVD, according to the HCL the t60p i am installing on is compatible using the ATIRadeonX1000.kext and adding a device id in the info.plist, i've done this - but when i look at my display settings it says...




Type: Display

Bus: PCIe

PCIe Lane Width: x16

VRAM (Total): 256 MB

Vendor: ATI (0x1002)

Device ID: 0x71d4

Revision ID: 0x0000

Kernel Extension Info: No Kext Loaded



Resolution: 1024 x 768

Depth: 32-bit Color

Core Image: Software

Main Display: Yes

Mirror: Off

Online: Yes

Quartz Extreme: Not Supported


Which to me would indicate that it pretty much isn't doing anything?


I have a 30" monitor so my preferred resolution is 2560x1600 but anything widescreen will work 1680x1050 of 1440x900, whatever is a good start...


can anyone point me in the right direction for how to properly install graphics drivers (Because I am assuming the ones I've copied to /System/Library/Extensions aren't actually doing anything?)


Other than that, everything appears to be working mostly OOB, including BT


Peace - X
