ATI 3850 HD AGP 512 GDDR3 DEVID 9505 with CI / QE & dual screen 10.5.6

Recommended Posts

First this might work with the same card but PCIE

motherboard ASUS p4p800 deluxe

cpu 3.0 GHZ

video ATI 3850 HD AGP GDDR3 512 MB

distro ideneb ver 1.4 10.5.6

ok, i have tried so many stuff out there , none seams to work for me , (or they did, but i had the bios wrong at that time, i don't know) but here is what happened

 

if i have the aperture in bios at:

6 MB card gets detected but no CI/QE

64 MB card gets detected with CI/QE

128 MB disco screen at startup

256 MB disco screen at startup

 

found out this info after lots of restart and freken permission repair and lots of distros

i used the latest agpgart Link @ mediafire, thanks to people behind agpgart

i don't remember where i got this but here is a link to the card driver Link @ mediafire

 

thank to all people working on this drivers, i'll will not name them bc i know i will forget some ,

thanks to all people bihind ideneb, netkas, skage, .... and who ever made this a possibility

please who ever use this tip and benefit from it, report back to see how many people did benefit from my experience

This is great!

I have a 3650 AGP card and I'm trying to install ideneb 1.4 with no succes! I know it's not the same card but can you give me some advice?

During the installation process have you selected any driver or fix for this card or you have started in vesa 3 and installed all the thinghs separately?

 

(sorry for my bad english.. :laser:)

@ qwert

 

at install i did not select any video card to install, but never the less ati drivers were installed , i would suggest to after install, to boot using -x for safemode, then go to your extentions folder and delete all files start with ati*, and then reboot and try the files i found.

 

good luck

 

update: i have tried to install ipc 10.5.6 destro but it is still too bugy for me

Can anyone please please specify "what" exactly needs to be installed to get the 3850 AGP card working?

I downloaded and installed both kexts (AGPG271 and ATI_NEW), but still nothing seems to be HW accelerated at all.

Please help.

I got my card working now (Device-id 9515: Radeon 3850 AGP) with full HD resolution (1920x1080p) :P !!!

 

to change the device id open a Terminal.

1. Edit the /System/Library/Extension/ATIRadeonX2000.kext/Contents/Info.plist

2. Replace 0x95051002 with 0x95151002 (adding is also an option)

3. Save

4. Edit /System/Library/Extension/Natit.kext/Contents/Info.plist

5. Find and replace 0x9505 with 0x9515 (or add an entry)

6. Save

 

7. Set the right permissions (chown -R root:weel /System/Library/Extensions/*)

8. Rebuild the kextcache (kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions/)

 

 

PS: Hardware Acceleration is still not functioning (Core Image: Software). Does any1 know how to fix this????

 

Cheers,

Tony

Many many thanks for this topic, flawlessly functioning under iDeneb 10.5.6 updated to 10.5.8.

 

On snow far as I go was boot in safe mode agp gart 2.71 finds card but no go after that, aty netkas agp enabler finds it like pci card in slot 1 and there story stops, and with original kext and aty init from snow x2000 kext I got full boot but graphic was garbled with bricks but it seems like it could work? so close so far bah.
