New ATI Radeon HD news

There is few good and funny news

1) MacPro’s Radeon 2600 XT works fine in plain PC.

2) MacPro’s Radeon 2600 XT uses Lamna as framebuffer.

3) we managed to get working unmodified triakis (for 3870/3850) and Lamna (for 2600) , 3870 card even got working sleep

4) There is no more Triakis in 10.5.2 updates, but we have working fine version 🙂

5) Releasing natit for it planned after 10.5.2 release, because time is money 😀

    Hi, I have a saphire hd 2400 xt and I have tried lots of different installs for this card but none have worked. The closest I have got is a gray screen before the computer goes to the osx 10.6.4 main screen.

    Any ideas to what I need to mod to get passed this blank white/grey screen

    I had all the problems above with my 3650HD.
    Blue screen, log in screen reset , scrambled screen,…

    I got it working now with QE/CI.
    How I did it :
    Specs : XPC Shuttle, AMD X2 4200+ (overclocked at 2.67) and 2 gig DDR2@400.

    Installed Ideneb 10.5.5 (through usb, dvd not compatible with my system). Only took HD BASE as video kext.
    First boot with no flags (scrambled screen) , manual reset and then reboot with -x (if i use -x the first time : nothing happens).

    Once booted i opened Pacifist to install The radeonHD3650 eps kext from Netkas !!! BUT ONLY the kext and not the Framebuffer. (leave the original framebuffer from ideneb)
    If you install the full pkg the system will start up once or twice but after several boots : blue screen.

    Reboot (no flags ) and tadaaaaaa Fully working.
    But : Rosetta is not working as it should be on ideneb 10.5.5. Solution : just install Rosetta Translate Fix pkg (google is your friend).
    I can play all the demo i download from apple : Tomb raider, Bioshock,….

    Hope this helps
