We need your help. FX users and users with similar CPUs are facing graphical glitches on AMD El Capitan. Other users are facing issues with syslogd spamming the logs. If you know what your doing then please take a look at the diff file located here or you can download it here. We think it may be a cache issue possibly related to mtrr.c

If you have any questions or suggestions please email using the contact form located in the header or PM me here.

You can follow some of the progress over at the link below where myself and fellow AMD enthusiasts are trying to get it working,

I have noticed that the apple logo at the top left hand corner sometimes shows up, (it is usually not there) but only when certain applications are active. It only shows up when TextWrangler is my active window.

My Razer Synapse (mouse) drivers' logo shows at the top right just fine.

Also, I dont know if this will help anyone, but I hope it does.
I originally installed El Capitan on my Phenom II X6 1045T and had no graphical glitches or any problems (of course). Then I bought an fx-8350, swapped the CPU, and booted up. Everything still worked great, except now i have the graphical glitches. (except for my mouse drivers mentioned above).

Yeah for some reason custom images or non apple ones for example your mouse app icon will show. If you replace these icons then they will show fine. We are still working on the source and are trying our best though :thumbup:

This is my first guess: Too much acceleration in default graphic driver is causing the glitches, can you compare with real macs with Capitano cause I dont think they run as fast.

Some icons when replaced with custom ones do work but we don't know why yet.

not sure if this helps but I'm seeing the glitch elsewhere. on images that are "color corrected" in Sketch (web layout app) it happens. once you turn off color correction, it looks fine. note "spirits" image.

also in the control panel, icons go glitchy when you click on them, but otherwise look good. leads me to believe whenever artwork is being altered by code it messes up. attached image is when I click the "energy saver" icon in system prefs.
