My problems have been resolved. I used Leo4allv3 final and selected the x1000 series drivers during install. After the installation I downloaded and installed Apple Graphics Update 1.0. My x1900 xtx is now fully recognized with rotation, qe, and all resolutions. No more black menus or mouse tearing.

My x1900 xtx is now fully recognized with rotation, qe, and all resolutions. No more black menus or mouse tearing.

 

I'm a total noob at this but is it possible to:

1. Download that specific driver somehow (x1000 series drivers)

2. Install it post osx install (installed with no drivers at all)

 

I use

Kalyways 10.5.2

Vanilla kernel (on core2duo)

ATI x1900xt

 

at the moment with mouse artifacts and worthless resolution (i need 1600x1200)

 

Also... explain really simple because im total beginner with OSX systems.

 

Thanks

 

(EDIT: also tried JCcools VGA driver thing... slightly better than nothing but there has to be a way right?)

Hi "iamwithstupid",

 

Unfortunately, my experience only goes as far as the Leo4All v3 build. Have you tried installing Apple Graphics Update 1.0?

Yes. I've installed it a couple of times in all the reinstalls of the OSX.

 

Shouldn't there be about the same drivers on all releases? Even if it's not im more happy to switch if you got it to work. Which kernel did you use?

 

... and also (since I'm a total noob at OSX) Is there a way to install a driver from the DVD after the OSXinstall, or do I have to pick the right one in the beginning? A.T.M. in the info it says: Kernel Extention Info : No Kext Loaded... Whatever that means.

Ok, now I'm able to boot with good results:

ATI Radeon X1900 XT:

 

Chipset Model: ATY,RadeonX1900

Type: Display

Bus: PCIe

Slot: Slot-1

PCIe Lane Width: x16

VRAM (Total): 512 MB

Vendor: ATI (0x1002)

Device ID: 0x7249

Revision ID: 0x0000

ROM Revision: ATYinject X1900 0.0.1

EFI Driver Version: "01.00.140"

Displays:

SyncMaster:

Resolution: 1600 x 1200 @ 60 Hz

Depth: 32-bit Color

Core Image: Hardware Accelerated

Main Display: Yes

Mirror: Off

Online: Yes

Quartz Extreme: Supported

Rotation: Supported

Display Connector:

Status: No display connected

 

But the only way to get it to boot is by:

-s

mount -uw /

/movevideodrivers

 

I also managed to get it to boot without that but only ONCE just after applying tha "graphicsupdate1.0-patch". The next boot after that I caught a bluescreen again.

 

Suggestions anyone? Is it a bad idea and use the "-s mount......" bootoption all the time? And if not is there a way to automaticly get it to boot that way?

 

Thanks

If you do install 10.5.3, you can regain QE/CI by re-installing the jccool 10.5.2 NON-EFI update. This, in combination with GFX and Audio EFI strings, gave me QE/CI back. While not an ideal solution, it will provide hardware acceleration until we can develop an updated fix based upon the 10.5.3 kexts.

 

Hope this helps

I'm not having much success with 10.5.3. Adding the device ID to the 10.5.3 kext and using the EFI string results in a freeze at the spinning wheel during startup (or with -v, i get a cursor over the page of text and it stops there), installing the 10.5.1 jcool ver 3 package gives me QE/CI but i get the black menu problem, and then updating that with the 10.5.2 NON-EFI update makes my system boot to a blank blue screen with a line accross the the top :P Right now i'm using the ver 3 package with the standard 10.5.3 ATIRadeonX1000.kext so at least this way i have resolution and readable menus although no hardware QE/CI.

Friends, I have got my qe/ci back. So, you can try this solution too.

 

Firstly, I've restored original Apple files from 10.5.3 update package (ATIRadeonX1000.kext, ATIRadeonX1000GA.plugin, ATIRadeonX1000GLDriver.bundle, ATIRadeonX1000VADriver.bundle and ATIRNDRV.kext) using Pacifist.

 

Then I've edited original ATIRadeonX1000.kext and manually add to Info.plist my cards ID (0x72441002).

 

But after repairing permissions and reboot I have no qe/ci :rolleyes:

 

So I've tried this solution from Bronya (see the first post):

 

sudo -s also enter the password root!
chown -R 0:0 /system/library/extensions
chmod -R 755 /system/library/extensions
rm /system/library/extensions.mkext
rm /system/library/extensions.kextcache
kextcache -k -z /system/library/extensions

 

And it did work for me :P Now I have Leo 10.5.3 and full qe/ci support:

So you dowloaded those drivers? Or just installed the 10.5.3 update, and added your dev id, and then did:

 

sudo -s also enter the password root!
chown -R 0:0 /system/library/extensions
chmod -R 755 /system/library/extensions
rm /system/library/extensions.mkext
rm /system/library/extensions.kextcache
kextcache -k -z /system/library/extensions

 

? Thanks for any help.

THANK YOU SHAMMAN! This is confirmed working for me.

 

I had 10.5.2 with EFI gfx strings all working well.

 

Installed 10.5.3 update dmg, as per netkas, then reinstalled .kexts particular to my mobo, then rebooted.

Result 10.5.3 without CI/QE

 

Applied SHAMMAN/BRONYA fix:

 

1. sudo -s [password]

2. nano /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX1000.kext/Contents/Info.plist

3. edit device ID 7244

4. chown -R 0:0 /system/library/extensions

5. chmod -R 755 /system/library/extensions

6. rm /system/library/extensions.mkext

7. rm /system/library/extensions.kextcache NB. I got a file not found error. I kinda knew there was no kextcache.

 

8. kextcache -k -z /system/library/extensions

 

REBOOT! into working CI/QE~!

 

Cheers!
