    And no devid for 9600gt nowhere else??
    And, please, can we have a 9.2.2 hacked kernel meanwhile? It would be great for people experiencing network instability and KPs.

    Thx for Informations!
    Expecting some stable 3870 official drivers..

    p.s. dreaming 9.2.2 hacked kernel as Jbla;;;

    I have reboot/shutdown problem in 9.2.2 vanilla kernel.. so I rollbacked to your 9.2.0 kernel(that was very stable in my 9.2.0 system),then reboot/shutdown fine, but usb/1394 device can’t mount after boot..;-;
    After all, I reinstalled Leopard and didn’t update to 9.2.2
    I’m still using ur great 9.2.0 kernel. it’s very stable.

    Jbla, if you have a 9600GT, try the files posted on the 9600GT topic on Insanelymac and report back.

    Do you plan to release it ? I’d love to beta test it on my HD2600PRO 😉

  7. March 30th, 2008 | 6:14 am

    Still no HD 2400 support, no care. 🙁

  8. March 30th, 2008 | 6:15 am

    I still am willing to test a kext for the 2400, as well.

    This probably means there will be new Penryn iMacs with these new ATI graphics cards.

    It’s been like 2 days. Does it work. The suspense is KILLING ME! *Drools over the thought of getting a 9600GT or a cheap 3650 for his other box*

    you can get an 8800GT for almost the same price as a 9600GT. just be less cheap and spend the $20 more and get something that is not only faster but has been 100% supported for a while now.

    stangen the HD3850 only works well if you have not applied the latest BIOS update to the cards directly from ATi.

    To clarify, within the last couple weeks ATi released an updated BIOS for the BuiltByATi Radeon HD3850 cards.

    With these BIOS the device ID remains the same but something else changed that screws up NATIT for these cards.

    You can get a 9600GT 512Mb at PC Club for $189 US or the 9600GTOC for $199 US. That is cheaper than any 8800GT I have found so far.

    My HD3850 works very well. But is 10º more hot and consumes more energy (30w) than with XP.

    Hi netkas, thank you for your work !
    Any news on the powermanagement issue in .3 ?
    i have a 2600 pro pci, and is a very noisy compared to xp (i think some of the kernel panics are related to this)

    Hi to all,

    applied 10.5.3 update (kalyway package on a leo4all v3. install) with 9.3 vanilla kernel and my (former perfect working) hd3850 has the white menues problem again.
    So… be careful. I’ll go back to 10.5.2.

    can anyone confirm the HD 3470 working? or advise me on how to get it to work? I added the dev id to x2000 file and all i got was “snow” on the screen.
