Does anyone know, why iTunes with this driver stops playing in a while? It's like that: I listen to a few songs, after like 20 minutes of listening, the music get very low quality sound. If I put my notebook to sleep, and after few seconds, I wake it up music plays normal. Help, please.

After using a kext from Mohd Yusuf, the sound works like a charm for now. It haven't crashed yet. Thanks Mohd Yusuf. "Slava ti", like we would say in Slovenia.

Hey, does anybody know a way to restart the sound daemon thing? Mine works, but after a short while it gets all crackly, but a restart fixes it. So is there a way that I can just restart the sound?

Thanks.

OK thanks, I guess i didn't read through the thread well enough. Does anyone know if the Devs are working on it? Or should I expect to just not have MIC support

I can confirm this works beautifully on my MSI RS480M2 with OSX 10.4.6. I tried just dumping this file into /System/Library/Extensions. but the system would just reboot while updating the kextcache - wouldn't even get to the login screen. Surprisingly I could get in from VMWare. Make sure you do the following if you're on 10.4.6 (or higher?):

1. AppleAC97Audio.kext (the original) is in /System/Library/Extensions/. Delete (or rename so that it doesn't have a kext extension).

2. Dump the downloaded AppleAC97Audio.kext into /System/Library/Extensions. Do this from Finder, or in a root shell:

>cd (wherever-you-downloaded-it)
>mv AppleAC97Audio.kext /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext

The kext needs to be recognized as authentic (root:wheel, 0644; or so the manpage for kextcache said) so do this in a terminal as root:

>cd /System/Library/Extensions/
>chown -R root AppleAC97Audio.kext
>chgrp -R wheel AppleAC97Audio.kext
>chmod -R 0644 AppleAC97Audio.kext

In case you can't get su to work, sudo each of these commands. If this step is skipped, kextcache skips the kext because it is "not authentic" (try kextcache -m to see what I mean). Next:

>kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions/
>kextcache -m /System/Library/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions/

kextcache probably would have run on bootup, but I did it in the shell itself because I was too impatient. Now things work like a charm. Amazing work, guys. :)

EDIT: I did not bootup natively immediately after this, I booted up in VMWare from the physical hard disk (just for fun). The system would keep on rebooting during startup (native) when kextcache ran (why?). In VMWare I got past that, and then when I booted natively I had sound and super-fast disk read/writes thanks to the guys at the SB400 ATA effort group.

I'm one of the devs on this project. I'm going to get back into development on my 200M machine here shortly, and I might take a look at what's needed to get microphone input working. I will try my best, but as usual, I cannot make any guarantees. I am sorry for you MSI users who are unable to get sound output, but I don't have a board that I can replicate the issue on so I can't test it.

THANKS if you can get the microphone I can (rather hapily) remove my winblows :) .

Alright, I took a look at the ALSA driver as of Linux kernel 2.6.20, and here's a list of features that I should be able to get working that weren't:

* Multi-channel sound. I'm not sure WHAT causes this not to work, but I'm going to try to get it to do so.
* S/PDIF output. I don't know if anyone has this or uses it, or its relation to multi-channel sound, but it should also be working.
* Input. It appears that some things were incorrect in the way I set up input. I'm going to try to fix these.

Here is a list of features that do not work and will NOT be worked on:

* MSI motherboard support. I do not have the money to purchase and set up a board, and remote testing is infeasible. You are welcome to research the issue and attempt it yourself.

Dear God,

I have a HP NC 4000, the only problem is sound.
It uses ali corporation on board chipset with device id =5451 and vendor ID 10b9
On these forum some has said it doesn't work because of the southbridge problem.
Some said use ALSA / Trident drivers, but no-one seems to have got it to work

Will your project be any use here ?

Alan
