Here's something that will baffle you - people on Hackintosh report fully work sound with the AD1888 codec using the Myzar 10.4.4/.5 install dvd. Yet even If I use the kext from the 10.4.4/5/6 multi install dvd, it just goes back to single channel left audio.

Anyone have any ideas why it worked for them?

Neither the first or the stereo fixed file worked for me in 10.4.6 JaS.

In the end I ended up trying something from "macgirl" http://www.nedprod.c...7Audio.kext.zip

Unzipped and copied it to /System/Library/Extensions.

Tried to run it, no success.

chmod -R 755 and chown -R root:wheel on the AppleAC97Audio.kext.

Ran the Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility and repaired permissions.

Tried to kextload AppleAC97AudioVIA.kext from within /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext/Contents/PlugIns and: Success!

But it didn't showed up in System preferences -> Sound yet, rebooted, and it worked :wink2:

Or well, with that one I to only got left channel sound.

So I tried with the stereo fixed version from here and did the same stuff and that time that one to worked.

So maybe that wasn't my issue, you see, I had also removed my SB Audigy totally from the machine because I looked in the BIOS and saw that integrated pci ac97 said "Auto", not "Enabled", and the only options was Auto or Disabled. So I figured maybe my audigy card made onboard sound to not start at all?

So in any case, stereo fixed version works perfect with both channels here after I've had removed my real sound card.

The sound is very "thin" compared to my audigy thought, I wonder if that is because iTunes is {censored} or because my AC97 really is {censored}, also it's to bad there are no mic boost in mac os because my mic is very low.

The second breakthrough, and that on my first day here! Thanks a bunch, pattjin :)

You guys are... unbelievable (in the best meaning of the word :)

This one gave me stereo on JaS 10.4.8 combo (sse3 intel), upgraded from bezeek's iso (which both
worked flawlessy for me, huge thanks go out to both of them!)

The audio device (from dxdiag):

Name: C-Media AC97 Audio Device
Device ID: PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3059&SUBSYS_97611849&REV_60\3&267A616A&0&8D

I listen to STEREO music while I write this :)
As I use headphones, having had only one channel was a bit problematic :blink:

But now it works fine here :D

Many thanks to everyone involved in this project! If the experience continues like this I'll be forced to buy a 'real' Mac :D

Edit: I forgot the originator of this first. Sorry, pattjin

Ok, I need help. First i have a AMD 3000+ (sse2) with an MSI K8MM-V mobo. The sound is VIA VT1617A. Everything else works fine. I installed fom the JAS 10.4.6 dvd rom. for the life of me i cannot get sound to work at all. when i go to the sound control panel, it says no audio devices, i have looked and looked thought this forum and tried various combinations of the .kext. but nothing. does anyone that have the same sound chipset and has audio working help me out? thanks!

I would be completely hosed on sound and video without some of you guys like JaS, Crisaw and all of the other guys that refused to give up and did whatever was necessary to get stuff working. After the 3rd install of 10.4.6 HOT ISO with the JaS 10.4.8 SSE 2 combo update and the SSE 3 updater I finally got almost everything working perfectly. My scanner is the only thing that doesn't work but I am working on it.

The trick of just replacing just the AppleAC97AudioVIA file in the plugin kext got my sound working in stereo.

Callisto 008 did the trick for the Radeon X800XT Platinum (No QE or CI but I'm still working on it.) Sees the correct chip and all 256MB ram. USB isn't perfect, but it works most of the time. Doesn't see all the ports and doesn't always pick up inserted devices.

One thing I still trying to figure out, is how to get 10.4.8 with the SSE2 and SSE3 updates to correctly recognise my processor. It is a Prescott P4 3.0 Ghz, and with HT turned in it shows up as 2 1.5 Ghz chips and with it turned off, it see it as 1 1.5.

Is there a fix for that?

Dual Boot OS X x86 10.4.8 and Windows XP using chain0.

P4 3.0 GHZ w/ HT
ECS PT800CE-A Motherboard.
USB 2.0 (with 2 hubs)
ATI Radeon X800XT Platinum 256MB AGP.
1 Ghz PC3200 RAM
1 WD 120GB ATA
1 Seagate 120GB ATA
1 Maxtor 80GB ATA
BTC DRW1004IM DVD R/RW drive.
M-Audio Keystation 61e midi controller
VIA 8237
ViaRhineII onboard lan
ALC655 audio.
Belkin F5D7000 (Broadcom 4320 chipset)
Hauppauge Win-TV and SB Audigy 2 ZX both unrecognised by the PCI bus.

If I can help anyone else with similar hardware config, let me know.

Then open Terminal and type:

sudo -s

(enter your password)

cd /System/Library/Extensions

rm Extensions.mkext Extensions.kextcache

(no problem if one or both files don't exist)

chown -R root:wheel *.kext

What is changed on the AppleAC97AudioVIA.kext anyway? Because, if it was possible to make 2.0 work maybe with some more editing it could be possible to make 4.0 or - dreaming - 5.1 work...
JaS, could you put it on your next repack?
It worked perfectly on your las 10.4.8 and all that was need was to pu the AppleAC97AudioVia.kext provided here inside AppleAC97Audio.kext`s Plugins.

Does anyone knows what was changed on the file?

Hi, Its the way it should be... the patch doesn't suppor 4 separate channels, only 2 => 4 channel stereo redirection...
So, if you plu the mic on mic in, it will work as a mic, and if you plug your rear sound soundbox on rear plug it will make stereo go trough there, so you can listen to stereo tracks on the 4 soundboxes.

Can you please make a

[codebox]sudo su
dmesg
[/codebox]
on the terminal windows and past the result here or at the mod's topic for me please?
I intend to get it better, and make it work for everyone, it will be helpfull if you do.
Also chek if there is no AC97 2->4 line on your dmesg

tnx
