Copy extensions from 10.4.11 to 10.5.8 for Rage Pro cards Other Hardware
Rage Pro cards were not supported in 10.5.8 so you can copy the ATIRage .kexts from /System/Library/Extensions of a 10.4.11 drive to your new one. It will update the kext cache and then reboot. You will no longer have no extension loaded in the system profiler for your video card. I'm not sure what benefit this has but I still can't play Wolfenstein because it won't load OpenGL. This works fine in 10.4.11.

[crarko adds: I admit to having a weakness for the G3/G4 towers. I loved my Blue and White G3. Anything which prolongs their life is a good tip.]

Copy extensions from 10.4.11 to 10.5.8 for Rage Pro cards

Not sure if I understand. You may have to be in terminal and be in /System/Library and possibly add these commands:

sudo -s
chmod -R 755 /Extensions
chown -R root:wheel /Extensions
touch /Extensions
exit
sudo -k

Reboot hopefully that may make it work. I know I have hacked a 1st Gen Apple TV and found out I had to do something like that to make it work. I may be wrong but I am sure someone may correct me on terminal commands.

Ciao,
Lou Cioccio
