    Tack för att du fick din uppdatering så snabbt. Tyvärr verkar det inte funka till 100% för mitt 4890. Så fort man gör något t.ex. går in i exposé eller öppnar program så blir det någon grafisk glitch på skärmen (horisontala streck). Är det någon annan som har samma problem? (har självklart startat om datorn efter installation + uppdatering)

    If you have problems try redownload update from apple. then after install, apply patch BEFORE reboot.

    this has worked before when ppl had issues after patching.

    Didn’t work, but thanks for the tip. Any other suggestions?

    netkas first patch was bad, he has fix on his blog now.

    the good patch is now in zeus.

    I have ATI RADEON HD 4890. Works fine in 10.6.2
    My system has automatically updated to 10.6.3 and restarted. Lots of flickering lines on the screen. I used the tool Zeus, in section I selected ATI Driver and 4000 Series and operating system OSX 10.6.3 and I have to download. I installed the application you have downloaded and I’ve reinicidado, but still not working, it works even worse than before. Any suggestions please …

    Hello Cindori,

    i tried to install the fixed patch using zeus on my freshly updated system and after a restart the system freezes at the apple logo.

    Is it possible that the new drivers are not compatible with the 64Bit mode? I changed my boot.plist to always start in the 64bit mode and maybe thats the problem.

    Can you give me some hints, since i got a frozen system now?

    I have a XFX 4890 ZSFC V1.6 in a hackintosh, that was working fine with 10.6.2, Now I no longer have working graphics but a black screen with the updated patcher 🙁

  10. nume 10 years ago

    fixed the problem myself. booted up in safe mode, changed the boot.plist back to 32bit mode and now i got a working screen.

    but i do have huge graphic problems – i get the flickering lines while using opengl apps (settlers 7) and i get some crazy “block-patterns” when the system starts up.

    would be great if you could look after that!

    Thank’s for the good work!

    I have that same flickering problem after updating 10.6.2 -> 10.6.3. I have tried all things mentioned here. Same problems that nume has, I think. I cannot run games etc.

    My card is Sapphire 4890 1Gt.

    Have you any ideas what could help? It work just fine before OSX update.

  12. nume 10 years ago

    btw another issue is the fan noise of the card…since the update the fan is running on high speed permanently…

    cheers nume

    After some years, along with others, I take been studying the worldwide roar in higher course of study in both developing and developed nations. These studies document that the rates at which young men, and noticeably young women, take been graduating from universities have accelerated in bordering on every nation during the whilom 30 years. China, in return exempli gratia, has xanax without prescription had a growth in enrollments at universities of both children men and women since roughly 1990, and a abrupt growth since the dilatory 1990s. A compare favourably with brisk spread of higher education has also occurred in diverse other peaceful developing countries, such as South Korea. Developed countries too own broadly also greatly increased enrollments at universities, although the US has fallen behind in the fraction of junior men who go on from high educational institution to inherit a college education.
