Documentation on the 4890 is surprising sparse and confusing. I have the VisonTek 4890 which I purchase because it has 2 DVI ports and no factory overclock which should make it a reference model.

Here is where I currently stand:
OSX 10.6.2
PC EFI 10.5

In System/Library/Extensions:


Both ATI ktexts have been updated and contain the 4890 0x94601002 ID.

I have installed them using Netkas' 10.6.2 QE Exotic Patch, and installed EVO using Ktext Helper B7.

Should they also be placed in /extra/extensions?

I repaired permissions.

In I have graphics enabled.

System Profile (In Safe Mode) Shows:

Here is my error message

The messages show are:

kxld[]: The vtable (Gives numbers/letters is corrupted/damaged) please check against the correct headers.

Can't load kext

Failed to load executable for kext

etc, etc basically the same message repeated for 3-4 lines.

When I finally do get to OSX the screen is all garbled, a mix of white and black streaks and boxes.

Any help would appreciated.
