Lion dp4

Good news:

finaly can get framebuffer working on 6970, how: delete ATIRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle, works on second boot

its possible to backport this feature from Lion to snow leopard, copy these 4 kexts from lion into snow leo: ATIRadeonX3000.kext ATISupport.kext ATIFramebuffer.kext ATI6000Controller.kext and use this aty_init.

Also, there is now Cayman XT, Cayman pro, gl renderer strings inside ATIRadeonX3000GLDriver, but sadly they arent used, 6970 is still unknown cypress gl renderer(if you recover x3000GLDriver, after booting to gui, and launch glview)

bad news: acceleration on 6970 is still borked, gives a lot of gpu debug dumps, so need to disable it by removing GLDriver bundle


for gf100 nvidia cards still need to apply this patch.

    6950 flashed to 6970 working without atyinit and Opengl under 10.6.7 with those lion kexts in full resolution on my Cinema HD display… good thing!

    It’s a Powercolor 6950 2GB reference desing board. I took the 6970 file from a stock 6970 reference board with 2GB from a well known website…

    From the system profiler:

    Jeu de composants : ATI Radeon HD 6970
    Type : Processeur graphique (GPU)
    Bus : PCIe
    Longueur de la voie PCIe : x16
    VRAM (totale) : 2048 Mo
    Fournisseur : ATI (0x1002)
    Identifiant du périphérique : 0x6719
    Identifiant de révision : 0x0000

    😉 The Opengl extensions is perhaps missing but I can use my computer for almost anything now.

    Hey NVIDIA Fucktards!

    This is for the ATI HD 6970
    No wonder all hackintosh sites suck… cause of idiots that post BS comments and unrelated information without thinking!

    Ignorant bastards!

    Installed fine with bugs. Using xfx hd 6950. No OpenCL, and all the goodies. Lost ability to Boot in normal(white screen after apple logo), only boots in single user(full resolution. And doesnt shut down through the apple menu. I get a kernal Panic, prob due to it not finding the 10.7.0 kernal(running on SL 10.6.7).

    ^::UPDATE:: Fixed the kernal panic. reinstalled Multibeast and its power management utilities and it fixed my boot/restart issue

    Any ideas why the triple monitor out (DP specifically) gets killed in 10.6.8 for the 5770?

    In 10.6.7 works great, lose support in 10.6.8.
