Hardware Compatibility

This is a component level hardware compatibility list. We want to keep it as accurate as possible, but please, do not entirely rely on this list when buying hardware. Add which parts you have working in the categories listed below, or create a new category. Please keep alphabetical order inside the categories. The categories themselves are ordered by popularity. Please list any caveats or problems as well.

  • ONLY add hardware that you have TESTED. Don't add hardware just because you think it might work.
  • Please add hardware into tables.
  • This is for 10.5.1 builds only.

For how to edit the Wiki, please see this thread. Thank you!

[edit] Graphics Cards

Please specify if your card is AGP, Integrated, PCI or PCI-E.
Also, place chip and board manufacturer in their respective column.

[edit] AGP

Intel AGP Controllers don't work so swift with 10.5. There is VERY little hope if your controller is Intel and you are having difficulties.

Then go to Network in System Preferences, hopefully it will appear. Start USBWirelessUtility and check for the device status. If it doesn't work, check that the RT73USBWireless.kext is really loaded. In terminal kextstat, and look for com.Ralink.driver.RT73 (1.1.7). If it isn't there try sudo kextload RT73USBWireless.kext in terminal. If you see any System.kext errors while manually loading, check the info.plist of your System.kext and see what version OSBundleCompatibleVersion is. Mine said 9.1, so i booted with tohkernel 9.1 and it worked that way. You might also have to add your ip settings manually in Network Preferences by clicking the plus sign above the lock and adding an ethernet device. Don't buy this! Go get one that works OOB!
