Steam games do not start for me after applying these via MBeast. Tried removing steam, reinstalling, redownloading game (DOD Source) and the game just never starts up. Otherwise it's working. Fan speed even seems a tiny but quieter.

Which is very similar near the top of the callstack to the DVD Player crash.

Kabyl + original kexts will get your Steam games working again.

Re: Guide - New ATI Kexts from MBP 10.6.7 Update - 5XXX/6XXX

Works ok with 1GB Sapphire HD 5750 (only added 0x68BE1001 to ATI5000Controller.kext from Apple package). The only things i did was deleting old ATY_Init and used DVI (as i see, DVI is the primary out for this card in this case).
Many thanks!

Re: Guide - New ATI Kexts from MBP 10.6.7 Update - 5XXX/6XXX

Ok, has anyone had success running a non-reference board version of a 6xxx series cards? I need to get a 6xxx series card for a working mini-displayport (figures the 5850 I have set for my machine that'll be arriving soon has a displayport that doesn't work with the ACD), and I have my eyes set on the MSI 6870 "Hawk" Or a Sapphire Vapor-X because reviews peg them at virtually silent even under full load, exactly what I'm looking for. Just not sure how a non-reference board will do with these drivers.

Geekbench & DVD player issues - fixed, tutorial tomorrow...
enjoy :)

Grate jpa! :clap:

I'm waiting for the solutions...

The solution is to go back to Kabyl boot GraphicsEnabler=Yes

ATI 5XXX users - you now just have some extra IDs
ATT 6XXX users - if your card's IDs are in the ATI6000Controller kext then that should get you back in busiess but I'm not getting drawn into this raging debate about who said what. I don't own any ATI 6XXX cards so haven't done any extensive testing. Please read reports from people who actually own these cards.

It's already available (for download) in another forum ;)

About the post in the other site - that was to allow the use of an ATI card on a Sandy Bridge motherboard.

I'm off to test bench results between having the new ATI kexts and not but still GraphicsEnabler=Yes - I'll let you know when I've got some results for the 5770.

I'm already on kabyl, so it just need to be GE=Yes? But I wonder why we need the new kexts at all in this case, is it will make any difference?

I'm on 10.6.7 w/o ATI kexts now, and every thing seems to be stable.
