hi ;) )please, send it to me too =))) sorry for bad english ;)

hello from russia =))




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

Thats the result I have after trying out your method. I dunno if QE is genuinely unsupported or it aint worked. I did get a message about x600 on loading.

Edit: Just a lil update. I tried running a program that used OpenGL and got a "couldn't create OpenGL content" error I think. Sorry me memorys like a sive. Didn't work anyhoo, lol


Any ideas?

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

Thanks for your solution.

Could you mail me the 3 Kexts (natit.kext, Leo Kexts and Tiger Kexts) ?? Please~~~

Because I have any way to find out them by google!!

If you could, Please send them for me!!

My Mail : pochang.peng@gmail.com


My notebook is Asus W3V, 1G RAM, 120G HD, VGA- ATI X600!!

Thank you very much!!

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...
