Boot kernel, ATi x1950pro vs Leopard
After a long time thinking in using back that old disc i got labeled Mac OSX Tiger 10.4.6, i took some time to try it on my warrior machine. Then I figured out i need to update lots of things, and realized I could go even further, and do the proper thing.
So, went with great furious and got a Leopard disc, which is where I am right now. As I am not running it on an authentic Mac hardware, I had to use an non-official image for my warrior machine (its an old Intel P4 475 3GHz with an AGP ATi x1950 Pro).
By the way, i have a somewhat good Unix knowledge, but I'm a completely newcomer on Mac OSX. So, feel free to point me whatever technical data you need, if needed.
As you can wonder, it is almost perfect, besides 3 issues:
- Boot kernel. I have changed /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist file. However, i can't automatic boot.
This is my complete com.apple.Boot.plist file (it has same original 644 perms, root:wheel):
So, first question is: What did i missed to make automatic boot works?
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
- ATi x1950 pro. This is my real good AGP card on this machine. I tried both Natit x1xx0 and ATY driver for x19x0 (not remember exactly its name), neither works. I have a blank screen only. Have not tried to swap DVI-D connector on this video card (it has two, but in BIOS/Windows/FrameBuffer it works). These drivers came with my Leopard install image (KALYWAY_LEO_10.5.1intel_SSE2_SSE3).
Any advices about using this board not in FrameBuffer?
Any information will be appreciated.
Oh, and by the way, my third issue is mostly a license issue. Does Apple license allows Leopard usage on a non-Apple hardware?
Thank you all.
OK so i had removed the refresh rate from Graphics Mode, booted with -f to update Extensions.mkext file and looks like i fixed my automatic boot. Yay!
But I am still stuck on ATi X1950. In order to boot with no kernel panic, I had to move away ATIRadeonX1000.kext from Extensions folder, and reinstalled ATYinject.kext.
However, I am unable to see anything on my screen: right now I am connected to this OSX via VNC and I can change resolutions, refresh rate, but my physical screen is completely dark, no matter which resolution I check. My VNC client do changes accordingly my selected resolution; physical screen keeps blank.
Switched cable to other DVI-D port on my video card, no luck. I will try Natit for X1xx0 cards and see what i got. If anyone has some more ideas, I would love to hear them.
Bah, even Natit for X1xx0 cards didn't worked.
