    Stuck on PCI Configuration Begin… npci=0x2000 produces a kernel panic related to ApplePolicyControl and NVsomething. I’m using a GTX470. Workes fine until the update…

    Yo ya lo he solucionado. Despues de la actualizacion, solamente hay que editar el info.plist de ATI4800Controller.kext y añadir el IOPCIMatch de tu tarjeta y listo.

    @Telepati: If verbose boot (-v bootflag) hangs at a ‘searching for PCI Device’-message then just use your old IOPCIFamily.kext. But backup the new one first.

    If your screen will turn black like suspend mode, then you have to boot -x and wait for netkas to surprise you with cool fixes 😀

    You may have to reinstall the custom drivers again after 10.7.2 update. I had to at least.

    I’m about to take the step to Lion, which as you know is 10.7.2 now. I’m trying to figure out if the .2 is going to wreck the QECI. Could you clue me in, kind sirs?

    I’ve got a MacPro2,1 on 10.6.8 with a Sapphire 4890.

    There’s this guy at advertising his 10.7.2 Exotic patch (builds 11C48, 11C40 and 11C43), which he claims is based on Netkas’s Lion GM patch. Anybody tried it? Any good?

    Any help would be deeply appreciated.

    I’m getting a kernel panic during the boot: it loads nvdaghal100 and then KPs with a traceback something like this –> applepolicycontroller, appleapci, iopci, iographicsfamily. It was working fine with the last beta release of 10.7.2. I dunno what changed. 🙁

    When I boot up I just get a black screen and my monitor turns off. Deleting NVDANV50Hal.kext solved the problem, but I lost acceleration. Replacing NVDANV50Hal.kext with the 10.6.8 version results in a black screen as well. Something is screwy with 10.7.2’s graphics drivers.

    Bryan, try to add your card’s correct PCI-ID into Info.plist of NVDANV50Hal.kext. If still wrong then try to use Chameleon to inject your card with Graphics Enabler option and remove your EFI injecting.

    i hope the situation with gtx 580 will be more stable, because with my asus if i try to start a 3d app the system will hang… i’m tired of swapping between my asus 9800 gtx+ and gtx 580… 🙁

    To use GTX 460 SE in 10.7.1 i’ve used the aty_init.kext..but for the 10.7.2 i can’t use it because in verbose mode i’ve seen that when lion load the freeze. How i can resolve this?

    October 13th, 2011 | 6:00 pm

    Got a black screen after reboot. I’m using gtx480 with Efi string. Adding card to DSDT produced same result. GraphicsEnabler=yes works; however, with a very low (10fps) score. I’m also using latest Chamelion version. Anyone else with this problem? solutions?…

    October 13th, 2011 | 7:57 pm

    с моей GTX 580 какая-то ересь происходит …

    after the update I added the device ID to the NVDANV100Hal.kext and reinstalled ATY_Init.kext which resulted into display turning off on boot-up instead of log in screen =\

    tried both DVI-I none of them work … reinstalling OS X anew didn’t solve the issue

  23. Matteo
    October 13th, 2011 | 9:25 pm

    Stanly.ok I’ve the same problem! If you can find a solution can you tell me that? What is your graphic card?

    October 14th, 2011 | 11:06 am

    Stanly.ok, why you use ATY_Init.kext? Try to use Chameleon’s future Graphics Enabler = yes.

    October 14th, 2011 | 12:06 pm

    I have Nvidia GTX480 and everything was working fine with aty_init.kext for detection and it was perfect. But now in 10.7.2 Display is going sleep after entering to the OS in the login screen. But the os is running with no kernel panic when used with remote desktop. Will netkas fix aty_init.kext soon?

    Really? It works well? Is the performance good too?

    You think it will be difficult for me to swap over to GTX580 from a Radeon 4890?

    2 Yolanda – thx! I thought it wouldn’t work without ATY_Init, and it didn’t at least in 10.7.0 & 10.7.1 (((=

    graphic performance is now A LOT better! 8P

    @Ed, remove old kexts or replace them manually from 6970 Package.pkg.

    System: Mac Pro 2008 3,1
    Card: Radeon XFX 6870
    First installed in 10.7.1 and all worked fine except dvd player. I updated to 10.7.2 and installed netkas’s kext. Now, I get the gray screen freeze consistently. Triggered by I’m not sure what; ironically DVD player seems to work, but netflix streaming tends to trigger it as does print doc.s and other unknown things.
    Anyone have any suggestions to try?

    Hi Guys,i’m newbie in in this so please be gentle 🙂
    installed the update (10.7.2), with Netkas 6970 patch (i have hd6970). all good, but everytime i open iTunes it crash the hole system (with your comp need restart …)

    i try to apply the iTunes patch using Andy pkg installer using standard one, when boot i got “Still waiting for device” (like telepati and xtraa post)

    Andy, can you please confirm if this patch only works on this update?
    coz, it was fine with original install of lion

    To enable OpenCL for GTX 470 Fermi, the patches described in the 3rd comment (Parsifal) of netkas’ Lion 11C43 post seem to work. The old OpenCL patches for 10.7.0/10.7.1 don’t work anymore.
