ATI RADEON HD 2600PRO

Hi all

 

I have recently done a fresh install of leopard 10.5 on my pc

 

my spec are as follows

 

Intel Dual Core 1.86 GHZ

2 Gig Ram

Sound Blaster LIve 24 Bit EXternal USB

ATI RADEON HD 2600PRO on PCI-E

I am running it all in a Shuttle Barebones System

 

I actually have leopard working using the onboard VGA card but I don't like it compared to DVI.

 

when i boot up leopard with the ATI card enabled in the bios it gets past the grey boot loader screen with the flashing lines then the screen goes all pixilated and then sits there.

 

Any ideas how I can get it working.

 

Cheers

 

Mike

I have basically the same config and my ATI radeon 2600pro is working perfectly.

 

I use radeon drivers from irc.osx86.hu channel #radeonhd.

 

However, I use the DVI to VGA adapter and my screen is connected with a vga cable.

 

I don't believe DVI is working right now with 2600 pro.

wow that driver worked

 

Now I don't mean to be a right {censored} but is there anyway I can now increase my resolution to above 1024*768.

 

and if possible get a dual split monitor between my two dvi tft's

 

if not the increase in res would be much handier

I have pretty much tried all the kexts/fixes out there and I put together the kexts that work (CI, QE, and DVI!!) into a zip, which you can easily install with KextHelper. I will post the zip when I get home tonight. I am not sure if different manufacturers use the same devID for the HD2600PRO or not, so you might have to add your DevID to the info.plist of ATIRADEAONX2000.kext

That package worked for me too. But I get white menus :(. And if I install the white menu fix from netkas, the screen becomes garbled at boot. Does anybody know how to fix this?

Hi all, I followed all the above instruction but after rebooting, the white screen with the apple logo appears (distorted res) and then the screen turns blue (a very nice and smooth blue though). All I can see is a mouse which i can control and it appears to be in the correct resolution (1650x1080). And also I think that OSX is running behind that blue screen 'cuz I notice when i moved the mouse to the corner that I set up to display all windows, the mouse changed into a hand with a finger pointing.

Any advice, guys?

Thanks

 

Here's my system:

Zephyroth Leopard 10.5.2 AMD EFI

AMD X2 3800+

Asus A8N-VM CSM

Visiontek HD 2600 Pro 512mb (dev id:9589)

HDD: Maxtor 200GB IDE (MBR partitioned)

audio: Soundmax (got it working with azalia package installer)

Lan: Nforce ethernet (not working, tried forcedeth and skge)
