Maybe try an older version or be sure to do it the way this person describes:ATI x1900 flash mac
Ah yes, many thanks! The version mentioned in the thread is AMD/ATI ATIFlash 3.79
. And this one works out of a FreeDOS USB stick!
OpenFirmware works, the cards fan control works, colors are ok, everything fine!
The card repots itself now as X1950XTX with 128 MiB RAM.
The flashed card does not work under Linux.
The OpenFirmware console works, but the mayor flaw is the fan control not working under Linux leaving the fans running at 100% which is loud
. Compareable to the sort of loud you get when the G5s fans itself hit 100%...
Guess I have to go the 2 cards way as I want to use Linux on this G5 too...
Anyone here in need of a Mac-flashed X1900XT? I have a spare one now.
