Question

Hello.

 

I just installed Niresh 10.10.1. Everything works fine except for the the Graphics Card and WIFI (not expected to work though since its not compatible).

 

So my graphics card info is as show below:

 

Display:

  Type:	GPU
  Bus:	Built-In
  VRAM (Total):	4 MB
  VRAM (Dynamic, Max):	10
  Vendor:	Intel (0x8086)
  Device ID:	0x0166
  Revision ID:	0x0009
  Kernel Extension Info:	No Kext Loaded
  Displays:
Display:
  Resolution:	1366 x 768
  Pixel Depth:	32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)
  Main Display:	Yes
  Mirror:	Off
  Online:	Yes

I have tried every solution as I could but still I'm not getting any graphics acceleration plus getting flickers at random. So basically here's how I am able to boot:

 

on boot flag i have to enter GraphicsEnabler=No to get into the desktop. If I'm only going to use -v, it will be stucked on gfx0: error ...

 

I am not just sure if GraphicsEnabler=No is the main reason for not getting full acceleration. Take note that is only entered from the boot flag.

 

Also I'm using Chameleon that comes in with 10.10.1 by default. I did not upgrade to any other version. Also here's my org.chameleon.Boot.plist:

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
<string>y</string>
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1366x768x32</string>
<key>IntelCapriFB</key>
<string>3</string>
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>debug=8 ahcidisk=1 dart=0</string>
</dict>
</plist>

I also installed the drivers from here:  it did not work. Hence I have replaced it all with their original files. 

 

Any suggestion would be appreciated ... Thanks and More power to Niresh.

Nevermind guys. I reinstalled niresh and used Clover Standard, and all hardware devices works OOB except for WIFI (which is okay)
