Thanks for the work. The kext work very well on my EP35-DS4.


But that cracking, sound is really, really annoying...

I hope that will be gone with upcoming releases. (I'm uzing the 10.5.6 modified one)

hey tmongkol

big THAKS for that audio kext! First time that I got all ports working!
My only problem is that cracking sound :) (ALC889a)
I tried everything... At last the 12/29 Updated SMBIOS and AppleHDA...
but still that cracking sound. What can I do? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance from Germany

@danielsan2008

When I look at your PC Spec, you are using EP45-DS3. karaakeha1 is using P35-DS4 and I am using EP35-DS3P. It may be because of chipset.

hmmm that could be the point tmongkol ...

I thought that it is only a soundchip thing. Maybe it's not....

Somebody with a working GA-EP45 around? :)

Hi All

Front pink mic working
Front green headphone working
Rear blue line in working
Rear green line out working, automatically mutes when front headphones plugged in (changes also in sys prefs)
Rear lines out (black and orange) working
SPDIF in and out working

:( Cant fix 1 sound assertion error (fMikeyDriver???) or grey rear line out

Hey,
I'm trying to get the ALC889A on my board fully working. It's not some Intel though
but the new Gigabyte GA-E7AUM-DSH2 with geForce9400 chipset.
The kext you supplied helps getting stereo and optical out working, which is great.
But no optical in, no hdmi audio, no 5.1... lots of "sound assertion errors"

I'm kinda new to all this kext hacking/patching but I really wanna figure out how to solve those
issues.

So could anyone tell me if this might only be a matter of finding out the real pin configs in AppleHDA.kext ?
I ask because if there is a chance, then I would install xp or linux to get some useful info and maybe
apply that to AppleHDA. But somehow I fear this is not enough and I'd have to gain some real knowledge about
drivers and assembler etc... which keeps me from trying :-)

But it should be the same or similar chip, right ? So what could be the key to getting it to work ?
Any advice is appreciated...

thanks,
st

@longtom

You may try ALC889A 1056 Fix.zip or AppleHDA 10.5.6.zip.

With both i have the "click" before each sound output.
Even with correct AppleSMBIOS.kext

What is the difference between ALC889A 1056 Fix. zip and AppleHDA 10.5.6?
Both contain AppleHDA.kext and HDAEnabler.kext
I tried ALC889A 1056 Fix on my iPC 10.5.6 PPF2 installation.
I am happy that Front Mic & Earphone working :) .
However lost sound on speaker :blink: .
The usual Speaker (internal) is missing in out tab :) .
What is showing is headphone. No sound out from the back green port.
What is required to get sound back on speaker?
Thanks for your time.
Have a nice day. :)
