Discuss Radeon HD 2600 PRO (512MB) + Leopard at the Hardware - Hackint0sh.org; Hello there.

Radeon HD 2600 PRO (512MB) + Leopard
I have a Radeon 2600Pro (9589, 512MB, PCIE) and Mac OS X Leopard (10.5.1). I've downloaded the driver package (from IRC) and I've also read netkas' blog. There he says that
Which kext do I have to edit? and the big question is: HOW? I am used to adding device ids with vim or nano, but what does netkas mean with binary edited?
2600 pro(0x9589) requires edited kexts (dev-id in plist and binary edited)
When I install the driver package and just do a reboot I get a fuzzy screen. Sometimes I see a mouse cursor, but usually everything is just flickering...
Thanks in advance,
hi, use new Triakis driver from IRC #RadeonHD and add your device id in Info.plist of ATIRadeonX2000.kext
to do with nano use this command in terminal
sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX2000.kext/Contents/Info.plist
then add your device id inside the <string> e.g: (my device id is "0x95881002")
<string>0x95811002 0x95831002 0x95881002 0x94c81002 0x94c91002 0x95891002 0x94c31002 0x94c11002</string>
ctrl O to write the file and exit
repairpermission then restart your pc
i hope it help!.
Thanks for the hint, the new Triakis-package from IRC finally worked for me. After installing, SystemProfiler showed QE and CI support, but my menus were still blank/white.
To fix the menu thing I simply replaced "ATIRadeonX2000GLDriver.bundle" with this one:
Now there is just one problem left: QE-enabled Apps (Toast 8, Photoshop, iMovie, ...) all crash right after opening them. Is there any way to fix this?
Now I was even able to solve the QE problems:
- iMovie: just needed an update from Apple Software Update
- Toast: works with Rosetta (sort of slow though)
- Photoshop: newest version worked
should this solution work with a 2400 PRO. I have a club 3D ATI Radeon 2400 Pro 256Mb. I downloaded the triakis package, installed it, edited the info.plist with my device id. I have Leopard 10.5.1 isntalled and operating fine with the onboard graphics unit.
My device id is 94c3 so I edited the ATIRadeonX2000.kext and changed the <key>IOPCIMatch</key> so that it was included in the list.
However, when my computer is booted OSX86 won't launch. It stops on a page of text about nodes. I'm not sure what this is.
With the card out, it boots fine with the onboard intel graphics, but of course I don't have QE/CI (or whatever it's called).
Do I have to do something else with the bios, or are there other kexts to install, or does this package not work with 2400 cards? Do I need to change the firmware of the card?
I've tried to get onto IRC to check the #radeon channel but don't know how to get there. I have chatzilla installed, clicked on dalnet as a server then tried 'join', a list of channels appear but osx86 nor radeon are amongst them. How do I find the correct place on irc?
