Привет!

 

Read carefully the whole thread. I think there is no final solution. Only some good results. Not so bad!

I propose for many testing and reports with different configurations and versions.

All observations will be useful.

Ok I followed you guide to the letter (thanks again)

 

I aint sure howto do screenshots on a mac so I'll paste my graphic section from system profiler instead

okay, here are my testing results:

 

I've tried your guide on an iDeneb 1.3 (10.5.5) with an ATI X700 (5652).

 

First it took me a while to get a working Callisto for full resolution. (006 with ovof's patch) - then I've followed your instructions.

 

The Result is, my osx freezes after loading the ATIRadeon9700.kext - without ATIRadeon9700.kext -> No QE/CI

Well I've crashed my Leo4x200 install (10.5.2) but today I've reinstalled it and upgraded via AMD Patcher 0.31 (thanks zephyroth!) to 10.5.5 with Voodoo RC1 kernel.

Let's see if it will work with this setup...
