10.5.3 hackintosh problems

I had a try at upgrading my hackintosh earlier today using the Kalyway 10.5.3 combo update followed by the Kalyway 10.5.3 kernel update. All looked good until I tried using spaces which jerked about horribly. A look at the System Profiler shows Core Image running in software and no Quartz Extreme. Looks like the install screwed the display drivers. Lots of hackintosh owners are having the same problem over at OSX86, so it’s time to trawl the forums until someone figures out a fix. It’s time like this I’m glad I backed everything up before the upgrade.

    I think Kaly mentioned in the notes that some video cards have issue – what are you running now again? My hack has a 512MB 7950GT in it, which barely works ( takes ages to boot ) so much so that I’m thinking of getting a hopefully much better supported 8800GT.

    I’m using a 256Mb GT7300. I tried several methods of getting it working under 10.5.3 with no joy yet, so I’ve restored to 10.5.2 and will try again using them individually from a working install to see what works.
