If you can't get your video working with DSDT then just leave the video section empty when using ACPIPatcher, then use a device (EFI) string for your video.
Just patched with DSDT, and removed device properties for graphics/ethernet
I gained audio just as this guide suggested. Also chose ALC888-0, I don't know if choosing ALC888-2 will make a difference, can it hurt?
I used the 4out2in kext, and I believe it works (4out implying 7.1 which I guess I could test if I plug Front Speaker connection into Side Speakers out, but not a priority atm). Though I'm not sure if the Audio sounds all the great =P Is your sound quality fine? Mine prob is, will test further.
Ethernet looks good too, I still have internet! =P and Bonjour still works (still have the R1000 kext)
But... I have lost QE/CI. What can I do here? Would it conflict if I re-add the device property for graphics only?
In the ACPIPatcher I selected 9800gt/512mb. With EFI strings, I always chose 8800gt (because 9 series is not listed), and simply edited the text to 9800gt. Maybe I can re-try selecting the 8800gt (Essentially the same card)? I dunno.
Edit: I've also lost Sleep, is this a direct result of no QE/CI? When I try to induce it, I lose the mouse for a few seconds, then just comes back.
Audio, what mobo are you using? as I have heard somebody before say their audio wasn't that great using DSDT and a LegacyHDA.kext but they were not using the EP45-DS3L.
Yes, sleep can be linked with video, so maybe?
If you are using EP45-DS3L, do what I did, add HDEF for the audio when building your DSDT in ACPIPatcher and then just add the LegacyHDA.kext from my support files in to /E/E.
I got my SL installation Stabled today but can't make Audio work, is there something i need to do on the DSDT aside from the CMOS reset fix, to make my audio work without using VoodooHDA?
using VoodooHDA worked but KP.
Thanks in advance
All I can say is follow my guide here and apply it to your system.
