8800GT/NVEnabler failing - HALP :-O

Recommended Posts



I'm Bjorn, and I have a somewhat WTFish problem getting my GForce 8800GT working with SL.



Mobo: Asus P5K flashed to P5KR for AHCI

Graphics: Asus branded nVidia GF 8800GT

Distro: Vanilla SL 10.6.6



I've got the magical black screen / no signal problem when attempting to boot with either graphicsenabler or nvenabler. First I removed the NVEnabler and tried with graphicsenabler=yes, resulting in a black screen and no go. Then I disabled graphicsenabler , installed NVEnabler (Tried both the old version and the 64bit one) and set the proper (I think?) display-cfg in the Info.plist. Yet still only a black screen on boot. I can boot into safe mode just fine, or normal mode by removing the kext.


My NVEnabler 64.kext Info.plist: http://pastebin.com/cAMXg5WE

dmesg after booting with NVEnabler: http://pastebin.com/nB5Yu9hs


I'm currently not running with a dsdt because I was told by an IRC guy that that wouldn't solve anything.


Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks a lot for your time. ;)
