    Question Radeon HD 2600 PRO (512MB) + Leopard

    Hello there.

    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
    2600 pro(0x9589) requires edited kexts (dev-id in plist and binary edited)
    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?
    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...

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance,
    mcsmart

    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
    Code:
    sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/ATIRadeonX2000.kext/Contents/Info.plist
    search for

    Code:
    <key>IOPCIMatch</key>
    <string>0x95811002 0x95831002 0x95881002 0x94c81002 0x94c91002 0x95891002 0x94c31002 0x94c11002</string>
    then add your device id inside the <string> e.g: (my device id is "0x95881002")
    ctrl O to write the file and exit
    repairpermission then restart your pc


    i hope it help!.

    Question

    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:
    ATIRadeonX2000GLDriver.zip

    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?

    Thanks,
    mcsmart

    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

    Hi all,

    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?
