Guys I have this nasty Intel DG33FB (ALC 888 on address 2) board that used to have sound from Taruga's Patcher on Leopard. For SL i tried the HDEF patch in dsdt.aml, but it won't work. I also tried voodooHDA as well as EFI strings. Would somebody make a patched kext and or DSDT for me ? I can provide a linux codec dump and the dsdt if required. ;)

@Aesop69: Even though I did it once earlier, but I tried again and did what you suggested, no luck :withstupid: But thanks for the suggestion. I'm attaching my dsdt.dsl (after HDEF patch) as well as the codec dump inside the "" archive. If anybody wants to have a look at it at their free time, I'd be ever thankful to them. My sound codec is ALC888 on address 2. This is part of a DG33FB board.

I have a request for all. That is to all who got their ALC888 working. My suggestion is that could we have a repo. that will contain codec dumps of the ALC888 along with the motherboards details . Even better, the dsdt.dsl as well. If we find that we have similar motherboards, then we can share working kexts rather than trying every method out there.

I 100% agree with this idea. I got my SL fully working :( with DSDT.aml using boot CD method on EP45-UD3L (ALC888 and ICH10) but for last 24 hours I have been trying madly to enable my audio (ALC888) using various methods told in several forums, but all in vain :) . I edited my DSDT.aml for CMOS fix and also changed the AZAL with HDEF as suggested by some other forum, but nothing comming up. I simply need to have 2 speaker sound and mic from front, but despite of my best efforts I am unable to get it. If anyone could help me that would be great.

By the way now I am trying the method told in this forum for editing DSDT.aml for enabling audio on ALC888, if I managed to get sound, I will update the forum with my DSDT.aml, DSDT.dsl and kexts used.

I took your advice... got the same exact dongle.... problem solved!!!!! :)


@kitmac
Hi man, would you pls share with everyone on forum if this dongle works in SL x64 and under what situation. Do we need to edit DSDT to enable sound or we need to use kexts, if you are using kexts where we can find those. I had been trying to enable sound on my mobo EP45-UD3L which uses ALC888 but unable to do it.

Anyone what should I do to get 2 speaker out and 1 mic input in SL x64. A simple but elaborated procedure would benefit many of the users of this Motherboard. Thanks.

Simple plug and play... Working in 32bit and 64 bit...... no kext needed

I ended up getting my onboard alc888 working using this dsdt.

I put my applehda in the zip as well.
I get sound assertions on boot but it works fine. Might not work for you but u can give it a try...

I've got an MSI x58 pro, which is supposed to have the 888S. Is it any different from the 888?
Are the above methods specific to the gigabyte motherboard mentioned?

One thing to add tho, I needed to set my output device to line out for my speakers to work.

Thanks, now my snoleo install is complete, running 64bit kernel and kexts as well :)

Anybody interested to upload codec dumps and working kexts? I believe all the working kexts are for Gigabyte boards ony because they are all using address 0. For people with address 2, it may not be the same, i.e. they might not taste success so easily. So please upload your codec dumps along with working kexts.

i use the voodohda 64 bit version

works for me

i used to use applehda as well as taruga's for leopard, but i'm using voodoohda for now, seems to be doing just fine. seems like alot going on in verbose boot with this but , loads fast, seems to work well. i don't use sleep at all so i'm not aware of any distortions after waking from sleep.

Kudos to cparm and Dith for putting the DSDT guide together. Just got this working on my GA-P35-DS3L with the DSDT patch and the Legacy kexts. If anyone is having an issue getting this working, be sure to upgrade to Chameleon 2.0 RC 3 and include "arch=i386 -legacy" in your boot parameters.

i have the same modo
1) use cparm HDEF section (post 7)
2)put 3 kexts from him in s/l/e (whith kext helper)
3)use original AppleHDA kext in the same directory
4)remove any .. HDAenabler..or any kext like this... from e/e or s/l/e
repair mkext

works perfect

Thanks to cparm

Is there any way to get audio without all this dsdt editing junk? DSDT makes me feel like we've gone back to the early days of tiger where everything had to be hand-modded to work...

I guess all we would need is a 64bit HDAEnabler and AppleHDA, right? How does one go about obtaining the source and compiling these?

I have the Asus P5Q PRO with ALC888. I had it fully working in Leo but in SL, this is all I get after trying out several diff. AppleHDA kext. It list the correct pinouts but no sound. What do I need from this point on?
The only way to have any sound at all is to use VooDoo.kext but that only gives me lineout and no system Profile readout.
Can anyone help?
