I think that sound is better with this New kext:

appleHDA.kext, just remplace

and dont forget HDAenabler.kext

this is for Intel DG31PR working with 10.6 (32bits or 64 bits)


Thanks for this kext, now my Foxconn P35A built-in ALC888 sound is fully working.

Grateful for this kext. My DG31PR ALC888 sound is fully working. I did the following:
Replace the AppleHDA.kext to /S/L/E, and put the HDAEnabler.kext in /EFI/Extra/Extensions. It worked beautiful!

- What is done in these kexts to make them work?

Hello. I install the kexts but I only have output sound, no mic (but in input says Name:None Type:Built-in Microphone and Name:Digital In Type:Built-in Digital Input). Can you help me please ? (DG31PR).

Thank you.

Here I used Chameleon-2.0-RC2-r640.pkg with GUID (no MBR). Put AppleHDA.kext in the partition of the Snow (/S/L/E), and HDAEnabler.kext in the EFI partition (/EFI/Extra/Extensions). Only this!

EDIT:
Do not forget to re-create/delete the cache (-v -f), whenever you change some kexts.

Snow changed the location of the caches. Now Extensions.mkext is in /System/Library/Cache, but I'm not sure if it will work just excluding the .mkext. Try boot with -v -f, with me always work.

Another question: For users DG31PR NEVER flash the BIOS, the USB stops working. USB only works with the BIOS version PRG3110H.86A.0052.2008.0612.1910.

I don't have that bios and my USB is working. I have the xxx.86A.0066.xxxx..



I have to have three extensions.mkext: in /extra, in /system/library and in /system/library/caches/com.cache.kext.com/startup. If i don't, most times my usb mouse doesn't work. And I have to regenerate them by hand with kextcache each time I install some kext or some installation that installs kexts

Guys - I'm running a similar G31 chipset mobo (Gigabyte P31-DS3L) with a very stable Leo setup.

About to take delivery of a 2nd 1TB drive though and fancied a play with Snow Leopard. Any advice you can give me on the install? Any particular kexts you have found to be necessary? I found a decent kext to get my sound working a real pain in the ass to find last time. I assume if trying to run Snow in 64bits I'd need to find a new kext again?

I was just going to add in the new HDD and install to it from inside Leo, running Chameleon 2 RC3 to make the new drive bootable then adding kexts to the chameleon/extras folder. Sound sensible?

I'm just a little wary since everything else works so well at the min and I don't want to bugg*r it all up.

All advice welcomed.

Well, I'm Brazilian, and I could understand what you said, I realize that you will start the learning process and installation of Snow. I personally collected, read and reread all those links, topics, posts and forums:

Get to work!!! :thumbsup_anim:

EDIT:
Unfortunately the impression that I could see is that Snow Leopard is definitely not ready for production. Not him the Snow ... Yes their products are still conforming with the new design Snow.

Thank you iorg! Here is the link again: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=184472

But alas, after the update to 10.6.2 sound stopped, the system does not recognize the output devices anymore. 'Sound' is empty. :( :( :(
