Ati radeon Xpress X1200

Recommended Posts

I've tried all possible Ati Natit solutions but everythime it ends up with the kernel panics on ATIRadeonX1000.kext.

 

Is there any solution for this card?

The Xpress 1200 isn't an X1 series, it's the x700 base with shared memory, you can try the Katana package, or just try one of the callisto packages.

I was having the same prob running an ATI Radeon X1200 512mb under a 1x00 driver, tried callisto b005 (uphuck 10.4.9 v1.3) and viola! She boots up sweet as! I've got the OS running sweet and vv fast, however, I don't have any resolution control. Any ideas? I might try swap the kext for another callisto driver as this was the first I tried with success (partially). I still have no USB or Ethernet, however these are just more probs to tackle that expand the brain I suppose (and deprave me of sleep! :D )

 

Any ideas much appreciated.

 

Cheers to vbetts! You helped me get this far!! :P

If your X1200 is the xpress1200 like this guy here, then you won't get QE/CI. There's no fully working solution for onboard video from ATI yet, and unless Apple or ATI just makes a switch from dedicated board, to onboard, you won't see any progress much either.

It is onboard although I've never seen any details of it being express (mobo specs etc)... would this make a big diff? If express has been ruled out (for now) with QE etc then I hope mines not a part of that!!

 

May well be getting a new graphics card then! Any suggestions? At least to match the x1200 I was on. Does PCI express slots have any known issues in osx86? Before I make a purchase that is!

 

Oh yeah, got USB and Ethernet... The video is my only prob now... and the sleep, that's still a prob.

 

Thanks heaps btw, muchly appreciated!!

 

Just looking at an ASUS EAX1050/ATI RADEON X1050, know of any issues?

no, you are wrong.

 

Xpress 1200 is an X2 series (aka AMD690g, RS600 based chipset)

 

specs are already release by AMD here:

Sorry to bring up a slightly old thread, but, has anyone with this card (RADEON Xpress X1200) managed to get it working? I've tried Katana, Callisto, Natit, and the built-in drivers, and the System Profiler always states the kext for the Graphics/Displays as "No kext loaded."
