After days of messing with different packages and files i finally found a process to get QE working in tiger 10.4.11 on my thinkpad t42_2378 mobility radeon 7500 M7 32MB.

 

Since im not allowed to post to a thread that already exists for this exact topic :) im hoping someone will see this and link to it. namely [HOWTO] OpenGL and Quartz Extreme working PERFECTLY on Radeon 7500

 

im using the XxX_OS_x86_10.4.11_Install_Disc_rev2 distro

 

download the ati_7500_pack.dmg first here

if it aint there no mo just google it.

 

Ive edited existing instructions to match what i have done.

 

"Instructions:

 

1. Run the Installer Package. Do NOT reboot yet.

2. Open Terminal and enter in the following

 

ioreg -l

 

1. Locate AGP in the output. It will most likely be listed as AGP@1, but your machine may differ. You will see "compatible" = <"pcixxxx,xxxx","pciclass,xxxxxx">

 

The first set is the item you should note.

Enter the following at Terminal:

 

sudo chmod 644 /System/Library/Extensions/AGPGart.kext/Contents/Info.plist

 

sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/AGPGart.kext

 

Locate:

 

<key>IONameMatch</key>

<array>

<string>pci8086,2561</string>

</array>

 

Change this to reflect the information you got above. (my card showed up as pci8086,3341)

 

cntrl-o, enter, cntrl-x

 

Now enter the following at the Terminal prompt:

 

sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AGPGart.kext

sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AGPGart.kext

 

Now enter the following at the Terminal:

 

sudo chmod 644 /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist

 

sudo nano /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist

 

Add the following in the middle somewhere after the Kernel key, but before a Quiet Boot or Boot Graphics key.

 

<key>Kernel Flags</key>

<string>-f</string>

 

cntrl-o, enter, cntrl-x

 

this process was just to get the Correct AGPGart.kext for thinkpad t42_2378. the other files that were installed dont work

 

Now there is another package that you will need to install. This contains the correct other files (ATIRadeon.kext, ATIRadeonGA.plugin, ATINRDV.kext, ATIRadeonGLDriver.bundle, ATIRadeonDVDDriver.bundle, Callisto.kext, CallistoHAL.kext, OpenGL.framework) that worked for me. The package is the "radeon7500" located on the XXX_10.4.11 distro. This package does not contain a AGPGart.kext so dont worry about overriding the old kext you just edited.

 

I will try to attach the package to this post.

 

Now open Disk Utility to be safe (this stepp is not required, but highly recommended) and run Repair Permissions on your disk."

 

9.Before i rebooted I deleted the two files in your extensions folder "Extensions.kextcache" and "Extensions.mkext". not sure if you need to do it but just for completion I did.

 

Once all this jazz is taken care of, it's time to make doubly sure the permissions are right.

 

10. Do this in terminal:

 

cd /System/Library/Extensions/

sudo chown -R root:wheel *.kext?sudo chmod -R 755 *.kext?sudo chown -R root:wheel *.plugin?sudo chmod -R 755 *.plugin

cd /System/Library/Frameworks/?sudo chown -R root:wheel OpenGL.Framework?sudo chmod -R 755 OpenGL.Framework

 

This should have already been done when you repaired disk permissions.

 

Ok, cross your fingers, and reboot!
