Nvidia 8400gs confusion
I am running SL 10.6.2 with a Nvidia 8400GS PCIe 512 GPU and I can't figure out how to get it to stop saying "I can has model?" in System Profiler. I am using NvKush kext and the card actually works great I have full support in everything even though it does not say I do. I can run final cut pro and have the waves thing when I manage widgets so I assume I have full quartz. Here is what Sys Profiler says:
Chipset Model: I Can Has Model?
PCIe Lane Width: x16
VRAM (Total): 512 MB
Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)
Device ID: 0x06e4
Revision ID: 0x00a1
Resolution: 1440 x 900 @ 60 Hz
Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)
Main Display: Yes
Status: No Display Connected
I'm so confused here. Where is quartz? And why does it say I can has model? Please help?
Got it fixed using osx86tools. For anyone else having problems here is what I did:
Click "Add EFI Strings/Boot Flag"
Choose GFX strings (top left)
Choose custom geforce hex at very bottom of cards list
For name input your card. Example - nVidia GeForce 4800 GS
VRAM size: 512 (or whatever yours is)
Output config: DvI-I/VGA (again, whatever you have)
Then choose "Import string to boot editor" at top and then apply at bottom of next window.
That's it. Hope this helps someone.
