Hi All

 

I just successfully install 10.4.9 1.4i on my box, and now try to make all hardware work.

 

ATIx1x00 pack seems does't work for the 2600XT.

 

Any one has solution for 2600XT? ^_^

We have no solution yet for the 2600, we need to put our hands on a new imac, see the kexts, and try some tweakings.

I guess there will be one, soon.

iMac Software Update 1.0 appears to be graphics-releated

Though Apple's cryptic release notes don't indicate so, it appears that iMac Software Update 1.0, which applies to the Mid-2007 iMacs released earlier this week, contains revisions to various graphics card-related components.

Among the files modified by the update:

/System/Library/Extensions

   * ATIRadeonX2000GLDriver.bundle
   * ATIRadeonX2000VADriver.bundle
   * ATIRadeonX2000GA.plugin
   * ATIRadeonX2000.kext
   * ATINDRV.kext

/usr/libexec/oah/Shims

   * GLEngine.bundle

So essentially, various files for driving the ATI Radeon X2000 card available for the new iMacs and an OpenGL-related bundle file were revised. It's still not clear, however, what graphics bugs were fixed or performance enhancements made. 

 

 

Backup and test ??? Dangerous ??

Hi, Thank you for your reply.

 

I have check the Apple Web, and I found the explain of this update:

What’s New in this Version

- This update provides important bug fixes and is recommended for 20-inch and 24-inch iMac models with 2.0, 2.4, or 2.8GHz processors.

 

So I think this one not including the driver for 2600. :thumbsup_anim:

Yes, remove atindrv.kext and fix permission.

 

Did you get your card working?? :D

I just back from the "grey screen", seems it does work for me or I did wrong.

 

There are 6 files

ATIRadeonX2000.Kext

ATIRadeonX2000GLDDriver.bundle.

ATIRadeonX2000VADriver.bundle

ATIRadeonX2000GA.plugin

ATINDRV.kext

GLEngine.bundle

 

I put first 4 in the "extensions" folder. According to the original pack, the last one should be put in "/usr/libexec/oah/shims/", but I can't find the path.

 

BTW, in ATIRadeonX2000.Kext/info.plist , I can't find where to modify the VenderID and DeviceID.
