hi fantomas1 !


from 2 weeks i tri to install iatkos s3 v2 on this configuration.


i have the correct setting for custom installation (yestarday i have installed a pci card firewire 800 and 400 with chip texas instrument)

work plug and play on leopard and on snow leopard (because the chip is texas instrument the best for apple and hackintosh)


the audio work, time machine work, front row work (but after varoius kext tried today nont work)


the problem is that the ati x1300 for the system is an ati hd4890 whit 256mb but no QE/CI (front row work) and resolution blocked on 1024x768


i have fixed the square mouse pointer problem whith 2 kext but no QE/CI and resolution (dashboard have ripple effect)


the combo update gave me kernel panic (i tried myhack and #####)


the system is perfect (after fixed mouse problem similar to itakosv7 installation but whit other kext pached) for internet navigation

and little software but no for me


iv tried to install houdini 12 and partially work! i have render some little frame from pyro module but the software is not usable...


for me the problem is: the graphic card ati x1300 and the combo update


i try to instal about 10 times
