G5 Configs: Anyone have this one?


    Aug 11 2006 | 11:37 pm
    Hi, I've come across some serious problems with a particular G5 configuration and I'm wondering if anyone else out there in Jitter-land has the same setup. Here's what I have:
    Dual 2Ghz G5 PPC osx 10.4.7 Jitter 1.6 Radeon 9800 Mac Pro Edition 256MB
    This computer used to have an Nvidia GeForce 5200, but for an upcoming project, I need a better card, so I installed the Radeon 9800. The only catch is that Fragment shaders don't seem to work via GLSL. Could someone else who has the same configuration do me a favor and let me know if they have fragment shaders working? Basically, I'd like to see the output in you Max window after running this patch:
    thanks in advance, wes

      Got exactly the config you're talking about.
      Older dual 2ghz G5.
      9800 card.
      Also installed are a Decklink Card and a Highpoint SATA raid controller. Not that these should make too much difference.
      Here's what the Max window did:
      (some time ago I had some problems with the shader tutorials in j itter 1.5 also)
