Integrated Graphics (Dell Vostro - X3100)

Recommended Posts

I have completed my install of Mountain Lion on my Dell Vostro 1510.

 

 

The laptop has Intel's X3100 GPU.

 

I am aware support for this has discontinued, but I read reports of the GPU not engaging on ML at all.

I have a working display, but my resolution is locked.

 

System reports that no kext is loaded.

 

 

Is this a total no hope as far as the GPU goes?

I've copied over the AppleIntel and IOGraphicsFamily Kexts, but this seems to have no effect.

 

 

 

 

Working:

USB (improvement over Lion)

Keyboard

Trackpad

Ethernet

 

Not Working:

Sound

WiFi

Display (Partial)

Try using the video drivers from 10.6.2. They are 64-bit drivers. All others are only 32-bit. If you are booting in 64-bit, you could also try booting with arch=i386. Report your results, please.

You might want to try using the X3100 kexts from 10.5.8, including the IntegratedFrameBuffer and Natit kexts.

Regardless how easy a kext solution might seem, the REAL solution is going to be dealing with DSDT http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=253299

 

Don't think it is complicated. I have already provided the file for the DSDT_fixed.txt file in the zip file I uploaded. It is very easy, takes about five minutes, and you have QE at the end of it. I haven't tested it in 10.8, but I have not reason to believe it won't work. Let me know and Enjoy!!!

Sorry, but ML is a different history... QE is NOT working at all in 10.8, just a proper display resolution and vram. The reason seems to be because any QE support from the kernel to drivers is practically dead (many errors in console). I tried almost everything. Anyway, good Luck to everyone.

Hi Marocain,

 

it's working with stock drivers from 10.8 ? Not X3100 32bit kexts from 10.7.3 or X3100 64bit kexts from 10.6.2 ?

Also with QE/CI ?

 

Regards,

 

Sebastian

As far as I have noticed its impossible to get QE/CI working in ML at the moment. ML ist 64 Bit only OS, every 32 Bit code has been stripped off.

 

I don't know how far we can get with the kexts from 10.6.2 as they were the only ones that had 64 Bit code inside.

 

I'd really like to install ML on my late 2007 Macbook but it's useless without 100% working graphics to me.

I have ML GM running on my Inspiron 1720 using the 10.6.2 video kexts. I am revisiting this thread in my search to find out if anyone has successfully ported 64-bit linux drivers to OS X. I'm still looking.

Hi everyone, any new info?

 

@Marocain: Can you elaborate? What did you use to get it running?

 

@mnfesq: Which kexts did you copy over? I'm having a KP problem when I install the 10.6.2 kexts...

I have X4500MHD GPU and I use a patched X3100 kext (my device ID is 2a42) and it has 64bit code.

 

It's working fine on ML for native resolutions for both builtin and external displays but of course no QE/CI.

From everything I have read, the lack of QE/CI is not the only problem with X3100 on ML. Much of ML uses OpenGL 4 while the X3100 only supports OpenGL 2.1. Thus, even if 64-bit drivers are made, or a 32-bit kernel, the lack of OpenGL 4 will continue to make ML with the X3100 problematic.

    • Good evening to all. So, I have an external 1TB seagate HD and it always reads normally, but now when I plug it into my HACK it just does not read, it does not even appear on the disk utility. The light always turns blue from the HD without blinking. However I plugged it into windows, on a macbook and it worked normally. I already formatted my hack but it did not work. Thank you in advance for the help and sorry my bad english   my kexts: AppleALC.kext FakeSMC.kext IntelGraphicsFixup.kext IntelMausiEthernet.kext Lilu.kext WhateverGreen.kext VoodooHDA.kext USBInjectAll.kext NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext   GTX 1080 Windforce core i5 7º generation 8gb Ram H170M Plus BR    
    • WOL packet is reaching the machine from LAN and from WAN (set with port forwarding), tested with "nc -l -u 9".
    • For me the forum seems reasonably OK, except whenever I see the word 'LOADING' - like when clicking another page of a thread - when it just stops completely and never returns.   I use an adblocker, so adverts aren't slowing me down.  Browsing the forum indexes is not too bad, as is clicking to view any thread.  Ditto clicking a link in an email notification to go to a particular post in a thread.  Sometimes it takes maybe five seconds to load a page, which is a bit too long.  But it's not terrible.   But then whenever I click on any other thread page, which tries to do the in-page content load (without a full page refresh), I see LOADING and then nothing further happens, even after minutes.   It's definitely not related to which content is loaded, but rather how it is loaded.  For example if I go to the index for this forum, then click directly to page 11 of this thread, it loads in 1-5 seconds.  But if I click the link to page 11 within the thread, it never comes back.  I just see this, forever:     This stuck issue seems to me likely something broken (code or configuration?) rather than a general slowdown.  But maybe there's also a general slowdown, especially for those who are seeing adverts.
    • This is as far as I can get with the AMD kexts and the device ID added. They load but the frame buffer isn't loaded. I've tried loading all 7 frame buffers included in the X1000 kext with no luck. From the tests Gigamaxx did there seems to be more luck spoofing as Intel graphics there. More support may come from integrated Vega though, hard to tell.    
    • as documented here it is a sample rate standard and i have also tested it and i can confirm that it works with my audigy rx at least, i have to test it with other cards   https://github.com/audiojs/sample-rate
