Mirror does not work after upgrade to 10.5.8 - 08-29-2009, 09:43 PM
I had a perfectly working mini9, with 10.5.6 with dellefi 1.1 and 10.5.6. I used the mirror feature for making presentations, lead discussions, etc.
I upgraded to 10.5.8 and dellefi 1.2a5. Now mirror does not work.
10.5.6 : upon plugging in the vga cable, the screen goes blue, flickers, and I get a properly mirrored display.
10.5.8 : upon plugging in the vga cable, the screen flickers, and then I get a weird vertical lines on a useless gray screen (on mini9 screen as well as external projector).
I tried fixing this problem by installing the mirror friendly 10.5.5 kexts. No use.
I installed mirrordisplay after consulting :
OSX External Monitor/Projector Qeustions
Now, I can get past the gray mess using alt+spacebar (or something) and typing mirror.
However, I no longer obviously have mirror. I have span, but no mirror. Ok for making presentations with keynote (you have switch displays to get it right), but I can no longer lead discussions.
Is there any way (short of a reinstall and downgrade) to get mirroring working again as it was with 10.5.6 ?
Or is this a dellefi version problem ? If so, how do I downgrade to v 1.1 ?
