hi madlock

 

 

what kind boot flag are you using?

 

 

No special boot flags required, by me.....

 

This is my chameleon boot.plist for 10.7.5 with GMA 950 (Optiplex GX620)

 

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

The problem witch Ati 6000 is OpenGL. If you ati6000controller.kext used with AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext, AMDRadeonVADriver.bundle and AMDRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle the graphics are bad but fast. If you ati6000controller.kext used without AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext, AMDRadeonVADriver.bundle and AMDRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle the graphics are good but slow. The cause is AMDRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle

 

Sorry for my bad english it is translated

Yes, you can, as long as you use ATI graphics. There's a topic specific for help with AMD installations in this subforum, and you can also ask for help on IRC, server chat.osx86.hu, room #legacykernel.

 

Best regards.

So does this run in 64-bit yet on AMD. What are the chances I'll be able to run it on my pc?

AMD Phenom II 955

Asrock 970 Extreme4

8gb DDR3 1600mhz

Asus GTX580 DCII 1536mb

Samsung 830 256gb SSD

 

Except for my GTX580 everything should run fine?

5770 works OOB ;)

 

I'm having a GPU problem. I flashed my hd6770 to hd5770 and it worked fine for a while.

But after a while my GPU had booting problems, sometimes it would boot after switching my pc on/off for 20 times.

However it doesn't boot anymore.

I really want to flash it back to a hd6770, but RBE can't do this! No device id for HD6770 :(

Just found it :)

No Combo Update yet. Apple, Really?

 

I have 12D74 from the bay of pirates.. I can't test it on AMD but it's stable on intel though I haven't tested 7xxx

I've read quite a few pages, but didn't get a definitive answer...is there a fix for the 6xxx series AMD cards? I'm all set up except for the really bad graphics glitches. Thanks so much to everyone for making this happen!!!!!

If there are glitches, you'll have to either deal with them or boot in safe mode for now. Some AMD cards (ie the 6570) just work, others will present graphics corruption. With nVidia, it's even worse. The reason is some bug related to the kernel running in 64-bit mode which we haven't been able to isolate yet.

 

Best regards!

Anyone know yet how to fix the graphics with ATI?

Or should I just swap my GPU to older one which could work?

This might be a stupid suggestion, maybe with nvidia. There is a way to update it to OpenCL by modding the kext. What if we mod the kext to use the older fallback OpenCL? Does the glitches come from software acceleration or hardware acceleration? Also DP1 had i386, I remember back in the days we couldn't make a kernel because of SSSE3 emulation, they used dp1 kernel on the unsupported macs that only had 32bit efi, it is possible to maybe recreate this or am I just completely off page.

we'd need /System/Library/Extensions from DP1. If we're lucky the release version kernel will boot with the 32-bit kexts if compiled for i386, if not, we'll need to apply the patches in binary to the DP1 kernel (since sources are not available for it).

@SS01

 

Yeah we will need the Extensions from DP1

Two Guides are found at Mac Rumours - Don't know if i'm allow to link to them.

 

Things that will be implemented in the upcoming guide.
* Fix for X3100, GMA 950 and X1600 graphics card!
* Sleep and power management fix
* Support for 10.8.2
* Enable older version of OpenGL. (Glitchy, but works!)
* No more OpenCL issues!
* Video Tutorial!

 

The patch do :
- replacing Extensions folder with the dp1 Extensions folder
- replacing mach_kernel with the dp1 mach_kernel
- replacing OpenGL.framework with my modified OpenGL.framework
- adding GMA 950, ATI Radeon X1600 kexts on ML.

      I need a good vanilla guide for AMD A8 7600 with A58M-E FM2+ mother board and Palit GEforce GT 730. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

      Hi,
       
      I followed the AMD OSX Vanilla Guide and managed to successfully build my first hackingtosh.
      Everything works great EXCEPT for my MSI - Radeon RX 580 8 GB GAMING X.
      I ran some benchmarks (and tried World of Warcraft) and I am getting ~50% of the performance I am usually getting in Windows 10.
      Unigine Heaven reports ~950 vs 1750 in Windows and World of Warcraft runs @ 30 fps lowest settings vs 60 fps ultra settings in Windows.
       
      Here are the kexts I am using:
      AppleALC Lilu NullCPUPowerManagement RealtekRTL811 VirtualSMC WhateverGreen  
      I should mention that this is an AMD hackingtosh running on Ryzen 5 1600 3.2 GHz 6-Core Processor.
       
      I read and I completely understand that I should not expect 100% performance. But I believe a 50% drop is out of the ordinary.
       
      If anyone has ideas on what I could try to up the performance it would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Thank you!

      Hey all,
       
      This is my first time posting to this forum.
       
      Here is my problem: My main issue is random freezing of my display (i.e. cannot move my mouse) and nothing being displayed after my monitors go to sleep (i.e. lock my screen, wait a few minutes, try to move mouse/type on keyboard. My displays wake up but display "no signal"). I have to reboot in order to use my Hackintosh again.

      Another issue that I am experiencing is that, every time I reboot my system and login initially, my right and left vertical displays do not display correctly until I turn one of them off and back on again. It is kind of hard to describe what is wrong, but basically the dimensions of the display and the orientation (horizontal vs. vertical) is wrong, and my mouse does not display in the correct place on the screen.

      Either way, after some research it looks like this all may be due to my Framebuffer being incorrect. However, I am having a hard time trying to determine whether that is the case and, if so, how to fix it.

      I did manually try to add a Framebuffer ("Kamarang") into my config.plist below, however that did not seem to make a difference.

      Any help with this would be much appreciated! Also, please let me know if I should upload anymore information.

      Currently, My setup consists of 1 Dell U3415w and 2 Dell 2415 monitors in an "H" configuration (both 2415s setup vertically on either side of the U3415W).

      This is all being powered by a SAPPHIRE Radeon RX Vega 64 (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202326) with each monitor plugged via a DisplayPort.

      I am currently running the latest version of macOS Mojave, 10.14.4.

      I am also using the latest version of the Clover boot loader (4920) with the following kexts located in kexts\Other:
      AppleALC.kext AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext Lilu.kext USBInjectAll.kext VegaTab_64.kext VirtualSMC.kext WhateverGreen.kext My config.plist file contains the following:

      Hello everybody,
      I'm from Brazil, if someone wants to write in portuguese, i will understand too. But english is fine.
       
      Days ago I installed the High Sierra, using the image (HighSierraAMD V2 UEFI.dmg). I have an FX8320e, the Asus M5A78L-M / USB3 mobo, GTX 750 and 12GB of RAM.
       
      Well, I build Hackintosh to run audio programs. Everything is working except the USB audio card on the card. But I read that some gyus updates to 10.13.4 or higher and it work.
      But I have some problem with startup and shutdown. I had installed the Clover in different ways, but it did not appear at startup. If I do not use the pen drive to boot, I do not have access to the system.
       
      I've tried different solutions. I formatted the EFI partition using the Terminal and reinstalled the Clover, but it also did not work.
       
      The other problem is the shutdown. The system goes off, but the fans and the mobo remains on. I need to manually press the on/off button to turn off the computer. I had used the Clover Configurations App to set the flag (shutdonw fix) but it not work too. I think this might be related to the boot problem.
       
      Thanks for any help!
