10.6.4 is out

10.6.4 is out
June 15, 2010 Oskar

Zeus has been updated to carry a QECI downloader for 10.6.4

However, the patch, which is made by netkas, is not yet created, netkas has hinted that he will be done with the patch sometime tomorrow. so for now, the button will give an error message.

For those of you who passed through this flashing thing in bliss, I’m reminding that the QECI patch is the patch you need to re-enable Quartz Extreme and Core Image support for excotic cards, software that manages most of the graphics in OSX.

If you are having issues with a non-excotic card, such as the 4870, you probably still need the 10.6.2 framebuffers and so you should use https://cindori.org/dualdvi.zip

To get the 10.6.4 button in Zeus just press Get Updates in the Driver section.

going on vacation for 1 week tomorrow, so hope this sorts out.

    hmmm has anybody a apple script error if you try to download driver for 10.6.4 ?

  2. Flame 10 years ago

    Yes. Same problem with the apple script error when downloading. Looking at the .pkg that gets downloaded you can see that the URL for the driver package is invalid (gets a http 404 error)

    I’ve downloaded a while ago QECI_1064.pkg from netkas site but didn’t work the trick, still only 4 Kb of download, the only good thing it’s that my wallpaper returned but still no quartz extreme support.

    there is no QECI patch for 10.6.4 yet, you are supposed to get a 404 (or applescript error)

    as it says in the post

    “so for now, the button will give an error message”

    hey cindori you think you and netkas will be able to use the work of ytrox/drluigi et al at the macrumors and insanely mac forums to get a patch working for zeus? I’m in no hurry to upgrade from 10.6.3 but I was just hoping Zeus has not met its EoL!

  7. crypto7 10 years ago

    d’oh! just visited macrumors forum… I have a 4890 and will test now!
