radeon 7870 partially working, help needed

Recommended Posts

PS. posted this on other forums too so I am "reaching out" :)


Hi guys! I have some issues these past days when it comes to my build. I can successfully start osx with 7870 but I have no acceleration. Here is a screenshot with info from system to tell you a bit more. Sometimes when I look at info it says 7870 and sometimes it says 7XXXX. I try to combine graphicsenabler with both yes and no, tried some different aticonfig like hamachi etc.

Do you guys have any pointers what to do next? I read somewhere about must having DSDT inject etc. I have never used DSDT before. The system works good except graphics.


I have theses specs:


ASROCK z77 pro

I5-3570k 3,4GHz

GIGABYTE 7870 OC 2Gb editition

Tried Aji, Hamachi, duckweed and now Dashikawa. Mostly I dont see 7870 anymore but 7XXX instead. Will try a reboot with graphicsenabler=no once again

I am using 10.8.4 as you can see in picture. I have upgraded from 10.8.2 to 10.8.3 and then 10.8.4, but at both times I had some errors. Finally I copied the kext files to extensions :)


Will read alittle on that thread you posted now

So here are the kexts. Could this be the bad boys making all the frustration? :)


PS. link to my files on previous page


Edit: So I saw that my Id was not present in ATIFramebuffer.kext so I found a new kext online and stuffed it in there instead. Also chose aticonfig=Chutoro that I think I saw somewhere is the correct one.


It booted into black osx and could not sleeptrick out of it. Had to restart and choose GraphicsEnabler=no to boot again

Booting up with GraphicsEnabler=no and no aticonfig gives me same result as always. But now card is named 7xxx instead of 7870 again.


Could it be bios settings? Kext errors? I read somewhere about using hdmi or dvi port could do the difference. Stating ports etc. Trying all I can here :)


PS. By the way, I used the dsdt by choosing it in the chameleon wizard. I have it on desktop still. Do I need to use it in some other way? I see in chameleon wizard I can also Patch the dsdt etc

you have to put the dsdt the root system or the extra folder.

No change. Now I saw in bdmesg that it loaded the dsdt and I chose graphicsenabler=no


I do however notice an error that occurs just before the white screen:

 

kx(com.apple.AMDRadeonAccelerator)
Can't load kext com.apple.AMDRadeonAccelerator - link failed
Failed to load executable for kext com.apple.AMDRadeonAccelerator
kext com.apple.AMDRadeonAccelerator failed to load (8xdc000016)

stuff in parenthesis is fussy so dont know what it really says


further down:

ATY_init: Starting
ATY_init: Checkingg dev-id 6818
ATY_init: Card 0x6818 was posted
ATY_init: Quitting for card 0x6818

First I did the sudo kextcache

Then I repaired in disk utility, here I saw the it fixed the broken amdradeon kext

Then I used kext wizard to repair again and chose rebuild cache

In chameleon I have UseKernelCache=Yes and GraphicsEnabler=no


I still get the error about linked kext and still slow in os


Strange stuff

Hi! Yes, seems that I have some different kexts now and don't know witch one is witch? Would it be a good idea to get kext from someone on 10.8.4 so I can put them there again?


oops, saw in the zip now that you provided files for me :)

Hm, I have now recopied the kexts to s/l/e and repaired permissions and rebuilt cache. I also for the first time put these kexts in EXTRA folder.


Still I get kext error at boot. Now I get 7870 in system info at least but still no go. I don't know how to check QE but not transparent bar and no ripple effects in launchpad.


Shouldnt chameleon/chimera load the new kexts in EXTRA instead of the one in s/l/e?


Edit: I saw that I had no Extensions in EXTRA so created it and moved the kexts there. I also read the you should not use UseKernelCache=Yes because it will ignore the EXTRA folder.


Still get the same error....this is getting weird :)
