Error after installing Callisto Drivers (Radeon 9700 Mobility)

I've got a little (hope so ^^) Problem after installing the Callisto drivers to get a resolution of 1280x800 on my laptop. The card is a Radeon Mobility 9700 with 64MB RAM. But it is recognized everywhere as a 9600....

Everytime i boot, the grey Apple Screen remains there and X doesn't show up.


I looked with Linux in the windowserver.log and it says:

I tried the normal resolution detection and the alternative mode. But both of them didn't work.

Does it matter, if my card is recognized as a PCI card?


Could you please help me?



Some additional information:

Mac OS X 10.4.6 installed from HoTiSo Image

Have you changed the vendor ID in CalistoHAL.kext?


It's no problem if the video card is recognized as PCI. In fact they all are. You can install an AGP kext later, but your problem lies elsewhere.

Yes, I did.

But I didn't change the 128 Bit Value for the Screen. Perhaps there is the Problem?


Do I need to Delete something of the original ATI Stuff?


I'll try a bit, if I'm at home.

Suggestions are very welcome!
