PNY NVidia 9400GT 512MB on Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L
Ok fellas, I've tried about a 1000 things so far.
Here's the basic setup I have
PNY NVidia 9400GT 512MB Video card
I'm upgraded to OS 10.5.6 right now.
Vanilla Kernel, using Munky's EFI bootloader dealy.
Everything works great - LAN, Audio, etc. Using all the kexts around.
However, I can't get the dang 9400GT to support CI/QE. I tried loading nvinject drivers - kernel panic
Installed the EFI strings using OSx86 Tools Utility for a custom device
However, with NVDAResman.kext loaded, I get a kernel panic.
I changed the info.plist in the kext to match the device ID in system profiler, and deleted any other devices from the list:
Tried installing random drivers from the web for Nvidia 9400 - Kernel Panic
so all Kexts are installed in /system/library/extensions for Nvidia except for NVDAResman.kext. EFI strings are updated, IOPCIPrimaryMatch strings are updated to remove filler and other devices...
The card *works* in that I can get a good resolution by presetting to 1280x1024, but I cant adjust it or support CI/QE
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!
I took macnutty's drivers from here:
I installed the 3 items from here using OSx86 tools, and deleted all files from the extensions folder with GeForce in the name.
Restarted, and got another kernel panic using -v - theres not details in the panic, it just hangs. seems to be when the switch from grey to blue would be. Theres nothing in the panic reporter as well.
Removing NVDAResman.kext via -s, I can boot again. Low and behold, I do see the device reported in system profiler now:
Graphics by NVIDIA:
Chipset Model: Graphics by NVIDIA
PCIe Lane Width: x16
VRAM (Total): 512 MB
Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)
Device ID: 0x0641
Revision ID: 0x00a1
ROM Revision: NVinject 0.2.1
Resolution: 1280 x 1024
Depth: 32-bit Color
Core Image: Software
Main Display: Yes
Quartz Extreme: Not Supported
But I can't change resolutions, and nothing is supported CI/QE etc.
Any ideas why NVDAResman.kext is causing a kernel panic??
OK Fellas, thanks to Hagar|Away on #osx86, All that's necessary is to use STOCK kexts from 10.5.6
Then just load NVinject, properly updated with the NVCAP and Device ID for the PNY GeForce 9400 GT 512MB
Edited NVinject.kext linked here for your convenience:
PNY nVidia 9400 GT
Use stock OS X kexts and add NVInject.kext (edit with ids) with OSx86 tools. It worked perfect for me.
Wrong check here!
