Dual screen with radeon hd 2600 and other Radeon hd news

2900XT workz !

THread with sshots
pkg for 2900/2600pro/XT (10.5.1) is on #radeonhd
------------

Thx to lastExile for experiments.
we got dual-head screen working on radeon hd 2600

no dvi yet, we r working on it

how ?
just replace every Hypoprion word in Info.plist of natit with word Franklin

and get ATY_Franklin.kext from 9a527 leo build and copy iit to /S/L/E/ATINDRV.kext/Contents/Plugins
See screenshot
what it actualy means ?

second port works, and it can help lappies, since second one is a main one

Another news, 10.5.1 update brings new cards support by osx drivers.
Looking at atiradeonx2000.kext i wrote small program which checks devid of radeon hd card in same way as x2000.kext

http://rapidshare.com/files/70873245/radeonhd_checker.html

example of using
$ ./radeonhd_checker 0x94c3
your card is 94C3
Radeon 2400 init :25edb
$ ./radeonhd_checker 0x9489
your card is 9489
BAD init (unsup card?) :25ab1
$ ./radeonhd_checker 0x9589
your card is 9589
Radeon 2600 pro/XT init :26041
$ ./radeonhd_checker 0x9400
your card is 9400
Radeon 2900 XT init

I take cross my fingers to get DVI works!

Tnx for your hard work!
Big respect to you Netkas!

Right on, I was hoping to get this card once everything gets worked out for it. Mad props as always! :)

Ciao,
I see in the screenshot pc_efi_v52 where I can download it? Because with my laptop the old ver doesn't work.

thanks

Presumably, that means Franklin is not the FB driver for R600 :(

Seems strange that DVI on 2600 is not working, yet DVI works on 2900??

What is the prohibiting factor to get DVI working on 2600...eagerly awaiting this.

I've had to go back to using VGA on my gorgeous 24" LCD and it stinks :(

Keeping my fingers crossed that you can figure out DVI on 2600XT.

Thanks!
