Sapphire Radeon 6670 recognized as 'AMD Radeon 6xxx 1024MB'

Recommended Posts

Hey

 

My device/vendor id string is 0x67581002, and it is in both AMDRadeonAccelerator and ATI6000Controller BY DEFAULT. GraphicsEnabler is set to yes, but upon boot, I get...

Ideas? Everything else works, but DVD Player / Steam / other programs do not.

 

Thank you

You need to add this lines to 'org.chameleon.Boot.plist' in the 'Extra' folder of your bootloader:

 

<key>AtiConfig</key>

<string>Pithecia</string>

<key>AtiPorts</key>

<string>3</string>

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>

<string>Yes</string>

Thanks for your reply!

 

I have tried this before, with no avail. I tried it again now, rebooted, and I still have

No go. In the process of trying all the framebuffers now, almost 2/3 done.

 

Booting with PCIRootUID=0 is a monitor sleep.

Bump with more console logs that I noticed while rebooting through all the framebuffers:

 


2/16/13 5:33:00.000 PM kernel[0]: ATY_Init: Starting

There's no part in ATY_init.kext about 6600, only 5700, 6800 and up.

 

I have also read I need to recompile ATI.c in my bootloader, where do I go about doing this? Thanks.

You must edit Ati Framebuffer Personality easyest guide for me is:

http://rampagedev.wo...er-personality/

or

http://www.insanelym...s-enabler-dsdt/

Then it will work with any bootloader.

 

Awesome. Trying the first link, since the second has an "it just werks" solution.

 

I'm halted at the first part, but I've done the second and third.

 

Here's ati-personality's output:


Kext /System/Library/Extensions/ATI2400Controller.kext/Contents/MacOS/AMD2400Controller
Cannot open otool -arch x86_64 -l /System/Library/Extensions/ATI2400Controller.kext/Contents/MacOS/AMD2400Controller for input

 

Looks like someone else had it, I'll be looking around for solutions to this.

Yeah, I realize that is how it should look. I know how to program perl, nonetheless execute it. Check the end of the rampage guide, someone else has had it. I have no idea here.

 

Any ideas? :s

 

EDIT: Dug around, turns out I don't have something called 'otool', let me finish setting up Xcode.

Ypu dont really need a framebuffer you can copy one after you see Redsocks BIOS Decoder output of your ati.rom.(How many ports you have?).I gues you have 3 same as my card 1 hdmi 1 vga and 1 dvi ,so u can use Ipomoea

Then you can edit your personality based on the guide.

Here is my output. I'll skip to the redsocks BIOS decoder now, and I'll probably use Pithecia or Ipomoea.

 

And copy what? What do I have to copy from? Yours?

 

I also think I have 4 ports (back panel has only 3) because of this:


Connector Object Id [19] which is [DISPLAY_PORT]
encoder obj id [0x20] which is [iNTERNAL_UNIPHY1 (osx txmit 0x11 [duallink 0x1] enc 0x2)] linkb: false
Connector Object Id [12] which is [HDMI_TYPE_A]
encoder obj id [0x21] which is [iNTERNAL_UNIPHY2 (osx txmit 0x12 [duallink 0x2] enc 0x4)] linkb: false
Connector Object Id [2] which is [DVI_I]
encoder obj id [0x1e] which is [iNTERNAL_UNIPHY (osx txmit 0x10 [duallink 0x0] enc 0x0)] linkb: false
Connector Object Id [2] which is [DVI_I]

Alright then...

 

Either this guide is absolute trash or I can't understand it. I don't know where to find the DIG output or anything, I have my rom in plaintext right here. It says nothing about DIG.

@alexander -

 

Rampage's Guide. Something about DIGA and DIGB or similar in the editing section

 

@Rampage Dev -

 

I couldn't understand it, for the personality editing part. It was too confusing. Booting with AtiConfig=Lotus, and Ipomoea do not yeild a working framebuffer (Just AMDRadeonFrameBuffer from ioreg)

 

@Slice

 

I'm not using Clover. But it looks like you got it to work, although yours has only 3 ports. My ROM output has 4, I believe I need a personality with 4, despite the back of my card having only 3 ports.

Would I need to use Clover to get these settings? Trying yours now.

 

Where is the sense ID in my rom? :

This is an output from red sock_bios_decoder. If you want to see senseid then you need radeon_bios_decoder by bcc9.

Slice, my Sapphire Radeon 6670 has the same values as yours. I see you are actively developing Clover, that's great and good for me to know. If you think it's better for me to switch from Chameleon to Clover to have this card function 100% I will. But before that I need to ask a few questions to find the right direction (10.8.3) (anybody else feel naturally free to answer, too):

  1. to which ports do you have monitors attached? I have one at DVI and one at HDMI. The problem with GraphicsEnabler YES is that BOTH turn black as soon as the GUI should load (I see a brief bright grey then black), regardless if Chameleon auto-sets the fb (Pithecia) or if U choose Ipomoea as you suggest.
     
    With VGA + HDMI all is OK. So I would need to know from you if you also have DVI + HDMI attached at the same time, and if you do NOT experience the balck screens.
     
  2. would Clover for sure solve the issue described in 1.?
     
  3. does clover install a boot or similar file to / which can be CHAINLOADED like Chameleon boot? I am using Grub4DOS as bootloader on a hybrid MBR/GPT partition HDD, which loads Chameleon just fine via
    title 10.8.3 via Chameleon_2189
     kernel /Chameleon_2189.boot
    


  4. when I boot without GraphicsEnabler, I have full QE/Ci, and even DVD player launches. Wow. Oddly enough, when I run ioreg | grep ATY, it outputs the generic ATY,AMD,RadeonFramebuffer. Now that's new to me .. I thought DVD player REQUIRES a dedicated fb personality to launch?
  5. Since DVD Player does launch DESPITE generic ATY,AMD,RadeonFramebuffer, which benefit would I have with the correct fb set via plist?

Thank you for your time, expertise, and efforts!

BugsB,

Sorry for delay with answer.

1. My monitor attached to DVI. I tested also with VGA and see no differencies (it supports less resolution but 1920x1080 yes).

With GraphicsEnabler=Yes (GraphicsInjjector in the case of Clover) I got black screen if no connector patch is applied.

With =No there is RadeonFramebuffer that works almost good. Just DVDPlayer crashes.

I have no devices to attach to HDMI. What it may be? :huh: My monitor has DVI connector.

 

2. Clover works for me.

3. Clover's boot file can be started exactly as Chameleon's one. But boot1h for Chameleon has a bug corrected in boot1h2 distributed with Clover.

4. I said about this in 1. In my case DVD player requires dedicated framebuffer. Else crashes.

5. May be multimonitor configuration?
