Please help a poor noob with ideneb 10.5.6
WARNING: I am a TOTAL noob to the OSX86 thing, but know my way around a PC very well.
I have ideneb 10.5.6 installed successfully (well, it only runs in safe mode).
I have the following PC hardware:
C2D E6600 Conroe CPU
Asus P5B-Deluxe Wifi which has:
Intel P965/ICH8R chipset
Seagate 320GB SATA boot HDD
Marvell Yukon 88E8001 LAN
Realtek RTL8187 wifi
ADI AD1988B sound
I have a LeadTek nvidia 7900GTX 512MB PCI-E dual DVI video card. Monitors hanging off it are a Dell 2408WFP and a Benq FP202W.
If I boot without the -x flag it complains with the following:
display: family specific matching fails
then displays a blue screen momentarily, then a black one with either a mouse pointer or a multicolor spinning wheel. It stays like that indefinately.
I am a TOTAL noob, and trying to understand how to get hardware recognised and working. I am happy for you to direct me to a guide for total noobs!
Even if you could give me some tips/advice on getting video working, it will enable me (hopefully) to boot normally and get the other drivers happening...
I forgot to mention I have tried installing 3 times with different video kexts. NVKush, NVDarwin and NVinject?
Do you usually modify existing kexts or insert new ones?
err... did you google your video card? something like "7900GTX Leopard" without quotes...
