Using DVI on XFX GF 8600 GT 512 RM JaS 10.5.4 NVkush, only VGA works

I've just did a clean install of 10.5.4 using JaS 10.5.4 release. Everything works except for one thing. I can't get my video card to use the DVI output as the main monitor. It uses the VGA port instead. So if I boot with my monitor connected to DVI output, I get a black screen.


here is my system configurations:

mobo: asus p5k se (working)

video: xfx gf 8600 gt 512mb (VGA and DVI) (fully working with CI/QE using NVkush, but only VGA)

sound: onboard (working with ALC883)

ethernet: onboard (working with AttansicL1Ethernet)


Does anyone know a solution where I can get my video card to use the DVI as the main monitor and not the VGA. Then my setup will be perfect.

Edited NVCAP in NVkush.kext changed from


04000100 00000300 0C000000 0000000A 00000000




04000000 00000100 0e000000 00000007 00000000


system finally fully working!





Same video card here xfx8600gt 512mb, how did you get it working? Can you provide a guide?


Runnying: Kalyway 10.5.2 , during install I left the nvidia driver unchecked since I didn't know which driver to choose. Currently I'm using a generic driver I guess.


I appreciate your time, thank you.
