Used NV installer and messed up my install =(.

I've been trying to get my resolution fixed, so I installed nvinstaller. I'm using leo4all, and have an AMD processor.


How can I reverse this? I can boot into xterm with the install cd. I deleted nvinject.kext, but I get a panic. There must be something else I need to remove.


Please help :thumbsup_anim: lol.

you just have to use the option -s when u boot in the optionsmenu. The Sys will boot in single user.

you have to do following when u have the prompt:

/sbin/fsck -fy

/sbin/mount -uw /


If you have Leo4all V2 eddie11c has added a script.

just type in:


it will ask you what kind of Graphics you have (ATI or Nvidia) choose Nvidia and it will automatically remove the kexts from your system.


If you dont have the script you can do this:

/sbin/fsck -fy

/sbin/mount -uw /

rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/Ge*

rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/NVD*

rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/NVinject.kext



this should do it


I dont know what Graphicscard you have but u can get an installer here:



EDIT: Here is what i did:

execute the installer and check nvinject0.2.1 and install. the package didnt work for me so i used pacifist (if you have installed all tools its in your applicationsfolder or do a click with the right mousebotton on the package, then show packagecontents) to extract following folder 9C31/System/Library/Extensions from the package to my Desktop

I copied all *.Kext (should be 14) files into the original Systemsfolder of my leopardinstallation (/System/Library/Extensions)


chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/*

chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/*

you should also remove the /System/Library/Extensions.mkext


After the reboot i was able to use the correct resolution an dualview was also possible. However this may vary because of the graphicscard! I have a GF8800GTX.
