Hi,

I've been using a 9800gtx+ in snow leopard for ages but I have the hdmi problem, where if any display is connected via hdmi it hangs.

I finally got around to getting Lion and installing it and found the same problem. From searching around I found a discussion on using nvenabler with snow leopard, which fixed the problem for a few people.

Can I use nvenabler with Lion? Can anyone please explain to me like a simpleton how exactly I would use nvenabler with a fresh install?

Do I just select graphics enabler No in multibeast and drag the nvenabler64 kext on to kext utility?

Then follow this http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=4

Any advice would be great, thanks biggrin.gif

Yes, that's one way to do it.
You shouldn't have to edit any Nvidia kernel extensions, if you see NVDANV50Hal.kext loading during verbose boot then you're fine.

Posting a link to the Chameleon source code is not helpful to someone who's using Kext Utility and Multibeast. It's like throwing someone who can't swim in a the deep end.

There are two models 9800 GTX+ cards - Device IDs 0612 and 0613. Both work fine with NVEnabler and Chameleon GraphicsEnabler. Additional tweaking might be necessary when using the HDMI output though.

1. Learn how to install kernel extensions and rebuild caches manually, don't rely on "easy" point-and-click tools like Multibeast, Kext Utility or whatever.
There will be times when you will not be able to use those tools, but you will always be able to access your OS X installation via Terminal - for example by booting from your Lion installer partition/flash drive or any OS X install DVD (Yes, even your old JaS 10.5.4 distro will work for this purpose)

2. Read up on "NVCAP" and "display-cfg" in the NVEnabler release thread. Depending on display configuration and the combination of outputs on your video card, you might need to override those values.
Both can be set by modifying either NVenabler's info.plist, or if using GraphicsEnabler, /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist. Make sure you're using a recent version of Chameleon 2.1 and see Boothelp.txt for more information.
