Graphic Artifacts

Recommended Posts

Hello, yesterday i successfully installed and booted OS X 10.8.2 on my AMD machine but there is a problem with graphics.

 

It's not about the drivers, OS X is recognizing my card (Saphire 6870). But there are strange graphic glitches, screen tearing etc. Safari is unusable, the text is all messed up. Also sometimes folders wont show files until i move the window and it glitches out.

 

I tried booting with GE=no, the artifacts occur a little bit less but in Kext wizard i see that AMD6000Controller is still loaded.

 

Is there a way to fix this? I read that it's AMD kernel problem and that it cannot be solved... :(

 

using following bootflags on Clover bootloader:

 

-v darkwake=0 npci=0x2000

SOLVED:

 

Downloaded latest AMD kernel for 10.8.x from here: http://www.osx86.net/file/3694-amd-108x-kernel/?st=10#commentsStart

 

Swapped the kernel via Terminal using instructions from here: http://rubayathasan.com/tutorial/osx86-changing-default-kernel/

 

Rebooted and there are no glitches anymore. Also, the system boots a lot quicker now. I'm happy :)

 

Tnx everyone for help and I hope that this thread will help someone else.

 

Cheers and happy hacking!

    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.

    • Hi, i am struggling with installation telling me that it needs less than one minute for eternity. in log it shows that "./postinstall: Using AMD Bronya Kernel" process is running, but 4 hours is too long for "Less than a minute" don't you think ;).    Please help me, i tried to install Mac OS on Intel and AMD processor PC, same problem.  
    • Hola, generalmente se postea en ingles.   Podrias dejar las especificaciones de tu tarjeta madre, por ejemplo: RAM PROCESADOR GPU ETC   Ademas de los componentes que tienes instalados... tengo una pregunta para ti.   Ya comprobaste la compatibilidad de tu ordenador con el sistema operativo?
