NVDANV10Hal.kext Problem

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I'm trying to get Titan to work but I've had no success. I have an Geforce4 440 Go 64M card in an Hp Pavillion zv5370 notebook (AMD Athlon 64 SSE2), I'm using the Jas 10.4.6 sse2 installation DVD +Patches+ Jas 10.4.8 beta9 combo update + EXP6 kernel. I modified the .kext files as explained in this forum, for my card I have to use NVDANV10Hal.kext.

My card's system ID is 0x0179, here is a copy of my NVDANV10Hal.kext/Contents/Info.plist

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<string>NVDANV10Hal (8.6.0f1)</string>
<string>NVIDIA NV10 Resman Kernel Extension</string>
<string>Safe Boot</string>


When I try to boot I get something like these:

kld_load_from_memory() failed for module /System/Library/Extensions/NVDANV10Hal.kext/Contents/MacOS/NVDANV10Hal

I also use gentoo linux on this machine, and when I have to load the correspondent module which is the equivalent to .ktext files in linux I have to set this parameters:

nvidia NVreg_SoftEDIDs=0 NVreg_Mobile=0

in the file that takes care of loading the modules.

Is there anyway I can set these parameters in any file like NVDANV10Hal.kext to make it work???

I also tried Macvidia drivers, and they seem to load ok, buy when I try to set the resolution to 1280x800 the system crashes.


I would appreciate any help!!!
