ATI HD3800 on 10.6

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had any luck getting a hd3800 up and running with SL?

 

The few sparse posts I've been able to find seem to indicate that only the 4800 is working with SL.

Looking in S\L\E, I see a ATI3800Controller.kext.

 

So far I've tried the following with my 3870, all to no avail:

Using EFI_Studio_Extened, GFX strings with the Vanilla 3800, 3800_Magadolon and 3800_Triakis.

Removing S\L\E\ATIRadeonX2000.kext and loading natit.kext by itself, and natit.kext and EVOenabler.kext together.

 

BTW, 10.5.8 worked like a charm with the 3800_Magadolon GFX string.

Bump here - looking for tips on getting a Radeon 3850 working in Snow Leopard. Almost ready to pull the trigger on a 9600GT since ATI support ain't so hot, unfortunately. (Would love to plop in a low-power 4670, but alas...!)
