I have a 5750 on 10.6.8 with installed extensions, correct resolution, but will not utilize OpenGL.


Here is my hardware info and what not for my card:

And lastly, my OpenGL framework which is apparently installed...

Also, I do have an ATI_Init.kext, so do I need "Graphics Enabler" set to yes?


Oh, and I discovered this problem by trying to play Warcraft 3 and Starcraft 2.

Don't use ATY_Init and GraphicsEnabler at the same time.


Try with just ATY_Init, edit it and set the framebuffer to Vervet inside its info.plist, that seems to be what most people are using with the 5770.

Don't forget to set GraphicsEnabler=n and remove AtiConfig=Vervet as well.


Make sure your ATY_Init is newer than late July 2010, it used to have a bug that caused 5770 injection to fail.


Or you can delete ATY_init and try GraphicsEnabler, configured like this:



Visit Netkas' blog for more information about ATY_Init and ATI cards.


Lastly, I don't own a modern ATI card, and have never used nor configured one in a Hackintosh. I found this information using google and the forum search - you could have done the same.
