well ... you can find any needed docs on apple develloper website ... don't have the link anymore, but you'll find it on the forum, just SEARCH ! lol

 

And in fact, making a driver for unichrome is useless ... that chip doesn't support the needed instructions to really work on OSx .

 

for the resolution , you have to modify the Com.apple.boot.plist ... search in the wiki

Hi, I have a VIA/S3G UniChrome II Graphics card and it is currently set at 1024x768 resolution. is there anyway to change this to 1280x1024. thank you very much in advanced.

 

I've got 1280x1024 resolution with on-board VIA/S3G UniChrome II on my PC.

 

Use Terminal

sudo su

 

type your password and press enter

 

cd /Library/Preferences/Systemconfiguration/

enter

 

pico -w com.apple.Boot.plist

 

enter

now you can edit boot.plist, add:

 

<key>Graphics Mode</key>

<string>1280x1024x32@60</string>

  • @60 depends on the display you use.
    I don't use @value and works just fine. but google it if you mind.
  • x is as "x"yz
  • Make sure your type has no mistake

it must look like this

press control + O(over write) and then control + X (exit)

 

type exit, press enter

 

shut down terminal

 

reboot

 

hope it works

Only reason that I would like to make it work coz I cannot watch DVD movie and OpenGL is very slow without correct Driver loaded. and It's a laptop, so I have no choice , can't change VGA card.... :unsure:

Aver, have you really read what i said ? YOU CAN'T have QE/CI , even if you make drivers !!!!!! VIA Unichrome cards DOEsN'T HAVE the HARDWARE INSTRUCTIONS for OSX !!!!!!!!

 

So, U can make any drivers you want, it will never allow you to work like it does with ATI or NVIDIA cards !

 

the only solution for us, it's to buy a PCMCIA vga card ... well, not for us, but for you (i don't have pcmcia on my laptop ... that sucks ! llooll)
