Hey Slice,

 

It hangs at the same spot for me even using sh /etc/rc (control-c won't break out).

So with leo 10.5.1, I can't boot and stay in single user mode (sh /etc/rc) I'm not sure how else to do it...

 

But it DOES give me an additional error line...

Gart 32 bit Only

It means you don't need AGPGart64 as all others here.

Same exact thing on tiger 4.11, and it can't boot using sh /etc/rc

This command will not boot. You may boot after the command by typing exit

It hangs at same thing...

 

AGP: Gart 32 Bit Only

AGP: hammerbus DevID=1100 VenID=1002

AGP: hammerbus DevID=1101 VenID=1002

AGP: hammerbus DevID=1102 VenID=1002

AGP: hammerbus DevID=1103 VenID=1002

AGP: hammerbus DevID=ffff VenID=ffff

AGP: hammerbus DevID=ffff VenID=ffff

AGP: hammerbus DevID=ffff VenID=ffff

This is OK! So I didn't find a mistake for you except previously find

gart-width=0x40 from your ioreg.

Where is your PCI bus trace?

This is not a driver for you. You need ATIRadeon9700.kext as you have DevID=0x4e50

Hi,

I have two boxes.

Both boots into GUI without Natit.

And what?

Sorry, I was too lazy to remove any kexts.
:)

 

EDITED: Sorry, I am wrong

 

2 CycloneFR

This is a new chance to correct a driver.

It would be better you zip large files to upload.

Wait!

With this Natit and 247i Tiger hangs on blue screen. Leopard stops at black screen but mouse cursor turns into "spinning beachball of death". With my old Natit Leopard as usual stops at black screen and system is running in the background. Also system log in Leopard shows aditional errors.

I can't get a PCI bus trace because it hangs and I can't break out.

I can't type anything...

 

Grrr.....

 

But it does the same thing on Tiger and Leo, so it's not necessarily a problem specific to Leo

And could the gart-width just be due to dual screens? Because the natit u posted is single screen only...

nice to see u still have a big hope for intel my friend :P here are the dmesg and ioreg zipped as u wished

same result as usual under xbench and etc from 245

Hello everyone, I have a problem with my nvidia 6200 256mb bus agp. I installed 10.5.1 AMD SSE3. If use agpgart 2.3 and natit or titan, I empowering the CI and QE but pci bus, slow. If you use agpgart2.5 or agpgart64 enables the AGP bus but without QE and CI. In this case I have to put graphics aperure of bios to 256 mb, if no one sees the black screen. Strange but true. There attached file ioreg.txt with loaded kext agpgart64 .I hope that it can serve those who are curious and want to help me.

Hey Slice,

 

The only way I could get it to boot with 247 was by removing ALL of the ATI kexts. Using the ATIRadeon9700.kext, it would stop at the same point, without the link errors. I was using IONDRVFramebuffer in ATIRadeon9700GA.

 

Here is the ioreg and dmesg... AGPGart 2.4.7 only, no ATI or Callisto.

 

Thanks!

No new errors. I dunno what to do.For nVidia users:try to write into natit.info.plist follows

		<key>entriesToAdd</key>			<dict>				<key>NVDA,gart-width</key>				<integer>32</integer>				<key>AAPL,gart-width</key>				<integer>32</integer>

For Radeon. I propose that neither AGP driver, nor Radeon driver set any value to Radeon register AGP_CTRL.I shall play with it and if find any result I shall propose some solution.I can't understand why AGPGart2.1 from TubGirl works for AMD. Probably it bases on another sources then I have.

And what I see in your dmesg
ACPI CPU Throttle loadedACPICPUThrottle: Adding CPU0ACPICPUThrottle: Failed with code -536870212ACPICPUThrottle: Adding CPU1ACPICPUThrottle: Failed with code -536870212ACPICPUThrottle: No valid CPUs returned by ACPI! It's possible your BIOS does not think your system should be throttled and therefore did not return any available power states, or maybe your CPU only supports one other power state than maximum which is below 1Ghz!

And nothing useful. Delete this kext :thumbsup_anim:

If you booted without ATIRadeon9700 you see what you see.What about combination ATIRadeon9700 without AGPGart, Callisto?If you can't boot, that something wrong in your system. This driver have support for your 4e50.

Ok, so tried it in Leo with no Geforce (even the long named ones) or nv40 or nvdaresman and...VOILA it works!

 

But no QE/CI

see my xbench below

 

And I can't get a PCI trace on leo (exit boots me into GUI), i'll have to try it on tiger later tonight...

no Geforce - no QE/CI.

You have no PCI trace because no Geforce.

Install AGPGart and Geforce, boot with -v -s

/sbin/fsck -fy

/sbin/mount -uw /

sh /etc/rc

wait for a minute, then

dmesg >dmesg.txt

rm -r -v /E*/L*/S*/AGP*

reboot

 

NEXT

Leo will boot with GeForce stuff (without NVDAResman, NV40, or NVinject), but it doesn't get loaded

After many trials, it turns out I can't get geforce and AGPgart to be loaded at same time...

 

haven't tried on tiger yet...

Hey Slice,

 

I can kextload ATIRadeon9700.kext using 2.4.6.

If I kextload ATIRdeon9700.kext using 2.4.7, it hangs at the same spot as my previous post.

Do you help me????thanks

I am very sorry for you and Zarac. I have three problem to you

1. Complex VIA BUS. I have sources but it needs me a time to make those changes.

2. I dunno Leo

3. With your nVidia you have gart-width=0x40. It is not reliable for AGP that is the nVidia driver works always as PCIe.

May be second problem is not a problem. AGP driver is the same (try 2.4.7).

Third problem is not an AGPGart problem. It is a problem of Video Driver.

but how is it possible that AGPGart v2.1 works on tiger (with any nvidia driver - titan, natit, nvinject)?

it is not just cosmetical - it boosts graphics performace over 200% (according to xbench).

even without benchmark i can feel the difference, with agpgart loaded everything is much snappier.

wondering if my tiger could perform even better...

 

leo is another story, i never managed to get any AGPgart working :(

Can you send me this working version of AGPGart 2.1?I shall try to dissasemble it to understand what is changed. I make 247 version for AMD the same as 2.1 version that I have. And it don't work?!
