Memory Allocation Error amd
1 1


Greetings, I just did a fresh install of Niresh maverick 10.9.0 and everything went great, I backed up the kext files for my Ati card hence I found a  topic that recommended me doing that if I get this error, and the same thing again. Note, this is after the installation was completed, all I needed to do left was boot up but I cannot due to this error.


My build

  • Ati radeon hd 7950 3gb gddr5 384bytes
  • AMD fx 8350
  • 4 GB ram ddr3



The error is the following:


Memory allocation error! Addr: 0xdeadbeef, Size: 0x0, File: ati.c, Line: 1772

This is a non recoverable erro! System HALTED!!!


So, this is my first time doing anything related to mac os, I have no idea how to fix this error, I need some explicit help.


Thank you.



Edit1: After some fiddling around I used GraphicsEnabler=No - I thought it worked only on intel system but apparently not, it got me through the boot to the installation, I am now inside os x


Edit2:I tried installing my gpu driver but it still won't let me boot up without using the GraphicsEnabler=No command, which makes my gpu invalid.

Im still waiting for some other options.
