So far so good, I tried the DSDT patch, the first part didn't do anything (from what I could tell) but the second bit worked, and has fixed a fair amount. Boot is perfect now, and that fixed the sound too, so great success. Still having some small problems.

Can't shut down properly (shuts down OSX but lappy just sits idleing)
Can't sleep.

That seems to be about all. I'm gonna try getting speed step working tomorrow. Thanks for the help so far everyone.

I've installed driver for Realtek ALC888, it works, but when I insert jack from my speakers, the music still plays from internal sound system. How did you fix this? Seems to be it doesn't response to the connection of speakers...

Hi Alyosa2001,

I upgraded to 10.5.7 and the audio does not work anymore. Tried the DSDT patcher but does not work for 10.5.7. Any idea?

Thank you

Hi All,
Audio fixed in 10.5.7
If you upgrade to 10.5.7 and audio did not work "ACL888" then

download "VoodooHDA.kext" and install.


worked for me on a GX720.

Haveyou tried CTRL+F12 ?

and btw, how is the new 10.5.7? any faster, better cpu management?

Also, how do you upgrade to 10.5.7? Do you put kexts in Extra folder? which ones? any other conflicts?

maybe you should try macdrive and the selected kexts from first post

or maybe you should search for another ideneb dvd source

make another partition, make it active (pqmagic or fdisk) install xp-32 and macdrive

you will see then the hfs+ partition marked with a red apple, then go to folder /system/library/extensions and replace the 2 kexts (delete the originals first to makesure no subfolder or file remains)

that's about it

next, after you install osx move the active partition to the leo one and install chameleon 2 as a boot loader

Yeah guys,
still using 10.5.6, cause its got the best performance for me (GX700). Some Bugs during sleep-mode and plug or unplug AC/DC adaptor, very good to work with Logic ;)
Btw many thanks to all the great works by tangra, taruga and aloysa and allthe others....

So far, did anybody installed 10.5.8 or the all new SnowLeopard? (is there a iDeneb release or similar with SnowLeo on torrents???)

THX
