Tried it but alas still no sound on EP43-DS3L that has the ALC888 chip. After 10.6.1 update from Apple SL install.
Removed/reinstalled VoodooHDA, and other audio kexts, but still no sound for 10.6.1.


Still no sound on EP43-UD3L with ALC888 and 10.6.1; continue searching

After an upgrade you usually have to reinstall the kexts.


edit:
i actually just updated myself and the sound no longer works. Anyone have alc888 on 10.6.2 x64?

edit 2:
Working again (as of now, will update tomorrow after more testing) by installing the x64 voodoohda posted here. If its gets all crappy sounding after sleep/wake install sleepwatcher and follow the first post here. If anyone needs help i'll post a more elaborate guide tomorrow.

So is there decision for ALC888 in 10.6.2? I was trying Voodoox64 0.2.2 - no sound.

I replaced my existing kexts in S/L/E by these ones: ALC888 HD Audio and it's working great (64-bit mode - 10.6.2).

Eureka. :)

I have finally fount a kext with working SPDIF in Snow 64-bit. I take no credit (or blame) for this, but it works a treat on my Gigabyte 965P-DS3 rev 3.3 (ALC888).

Download page

Thanks Bansako, wherever you are!

I have an Intel DG35EC board and am using the onboard sound. For a long time I have been using Voodoo.kext to get at least stereo sound. I have never had any luck with and ALC kexts, but I figured what the heck, one more try. So I installed these, removed Voodoo.kext and rebooted. My speakers thump when I reboot and I get the following in System Profiler:

Intel High Definition Audio:

Device ID: 0x8086D701
Audio ID: 12
Available Devices:
Line Out:
Connection: 1/8-Inch Jack
External Microphone:
Connection: 1/8-Inch Jack
External Microphone:
Connection: 1/8-Inch Jack
Headphone:
Connection: 1/8-Inch Jack
S/P-DIF Out:
Connection: Internal

However, once I get to the desktop the speakers thump again and there is no audio device in system preference even though it is still listed in profiler. Any ideas?

Didn't get any change with these kexts also tried the other Ac888 one

Got a EP45-DS4 with 10.6.2 - Want onboard sound and / or front headphone socket

Anyone got it working without patching the DSDT.

Sound not working

Try this, worked on my EP43-UD3L

(1) Find and download "Taruga’s AppleHDA Patcher version 1.20"
(2) Find and download "VoodooHDA.kext"
(3) Make your own CODEC Dump in Linux buy typing this into the Terminal

"cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#0 > ~/Desktop/codec_dump.txt"

and use that file,

if you get nothing, try changing "codec#0" to "codec#1"
keep going up in numbers till you get the info.

Like

"cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#0 > ~/Desktop/codec_dump.txt"
"cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#1 > ~/Desktop/codec_dump.txt"
"cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#2 > ~/Desktop/codec_dump.txt"

(Hint) the Ubuntu Install CD works just fine for this

(4) Find and download "Kext Utility"
(5) Drag "VoodooHDA.kext" onto "Kext Utility" to install
(6) Make a backup copy of "AppleHDA.kext", its in "/System/Library/Extensions"
(7) Drag "codec_dump.txt" onto "AppleHDA Patcher" to install

- EDIT
Has this worked for any one else ?

I tried a lot of stuff on mine, and this was the one that worked the best for me, but
I was using another setup for my audio before, the file "dg31pr_snow.zip" over at

SL KP on boot Intel DG31PR, does sl work from MBR?

Inside of the "dg31pr_snow.zip" are two sound KEXTs "AppleHDA.zip" and HDAEnabler.kext.zip
and I used them before I found the method using Taruga’s AppleHDA Patcher, I found that
method here

EP43-UD3L 10.6 SL Snow Leopard Install

and the codec dump info here

How to make a codec dump for my sound card?

Thought it might help to put the info/links in one post

Come to find out that you may not even need to use AppleHDA Patcher, and that
means no Codec Dump ether.

So it would be like this

(1) Find and download "VoodooHDA.kext"
(3) Find and download "Kext Utility"
(4) Drag "VoodooHDA.kext" onto "Kext Utility" to install

But now here is the tricky part, "AppleHDA.kext" and the file that gets created
buy AppleHDA Patcher, "ALCinject.kext", might interfere with "VoodooHDA.kext"
(or so I have read) so you should back them up, and remove them from
"/System/Library/Extensions" and run "Kext Utility" to clean up.

AND

There are quite a few different versions of VoodooHDA, each one seams to have different
fixes and abilities, here are 3, but there are more.

VoodooHDA (32-/ 64-bit, recompiled by Prasys)

VoodooPS2 and VoodooHDA (now 0.2.2 with prefPane) drivers for snow leopard 32/64 bit

Voodoohda Driver, Fully working!

Each one seams to act slightly different

With all the DSDT editing and whatnot floating around i desperately sought after a simpler solution. This method uses HDEFEnabler, a x64 version of HDAEnabler from Taruga, and a patched AppleHDA of unknown origins (if you know it belongs to you let me know and i will add your name for credit).
These cant be installed to an efi partition, and have to go in /S/L/E, but if it saves me time and confusion from editing the dsdt i really dont care.

I just installed them using KextHelper which surprisingly works well in 10.6. It will back up your original AppleHDA to /Backup Extensions, so if you need it back you can find it there.

This may also work with other codecs but all i have around here are 888 so i cant test anything else.

The kexts are attached, please report if this worked or not along with your motherboard model. I havent tested this extensively, but as far as i can tell it gives me 5.1 surround on my GA-EP45T-UD3LR


Dude, after hours and hours of trying every method I could find, this worked straight away. Thank you very much!

Has anyone gotten surround sound working in 10.6.2? I'm running the UD3R. All 3 line outs work, but when I create an aggregate device and select all 3 lines, it still only uses one of them...

Hey it works! Only minor issues - microphone doesn't work. And external speakers are identified as Internal speaker... I guess requires minor tweak, but atleast I got sound working!

My config - SL (10.6.2) on DP55WB Mobo, ALC888.

If anyone has microphone working on a similar config, please highlight if any special fix is required!
