This is a really noob question but how do you install the latest voodooHDA kext (2.8.2d6 by Zenith432) and VoodooHDA.prefPane ?

 

I am used to dropping a kext on Kexthelper which rebuilds the cache and permissions. Do I do the same for this kext and if so what about VoodooHDA.prefPane and VoodooHDASettings Loader, where should they be installed/copied.

I had to delete VoodooHDA.kext as I got kernel panics on every boot. Removing AppleHDA.kext also made no difference but although I can now boot OK I have no sound without a driver.

The latest VoodooHDA is 2.8.4. I wouldn't even recommend 2.8.2

 

2.8.0 is the last best release. 2.8.2+ has some major quality issues.

 

To download it, seek "Easy VoodooHDA 2.8.0 installer 1.0". This package installs a HDADisabler so you don't have to worry about deleting AppleHDA. Plus, it also installs Voodoo prefpane

Hi!

 

I have crackling sound on Maveric. I'm using the same 2.8.4 driver wich I used for OSX 10.8.4. Sound was fine on 10.8.4, But no anymore with Maverick. At the beginning sound si fine, but after short usage it become weird, cracks, distrupted. When I change from Audio Midi Setup utility the sample rate to anothe, sound becomes normal again. But only for short period and then sound is again crackled and distrupted. 

 

Any suggestions. Have tried all suggestion given on first post of this thread. Nothing seems to help.



Could you elaborate on that. System clock....effect? That's the issue I'm having. The only version working for me is 2.8.2. Sound starts out perfect but after a few minutes static, crackle, distortion, sets in until it totally looses the sound, left with popping distorted bits of sound. Also on booting speaker give off a pop. Going to midi setup and changing frequency fixes it but only temporarily after a few minutes same thing. Can't figure it out. Force HPET did not work for me.

I have the same issue on Maverick. The same ddriver worked fine on OSX 10.8.4. Uneable to figure out what happens.

No sound after sleep.

Tried unloading VoodooHDA before sleep and loading after. No luck.

In dmesg after sleep:

Controller: Intel Panther Point (vendor ID: 8086, device ID: 1e20)
error: numPcmDevices is zero

I assume you wish to keep it as such, right?

 

Well, try setting it to MacPro3,1 and put it to sleep.

Tried and also tried MacPro4,1. Same issue. Maybe it's DSDT releated problem?

Possible

 

I doubt it is, tho.

 

Voodoohda doesn't rely on DSDT edits

Change VoodooHDA version from your 0.2.1 to actual 2.8.4.

Make voodoohda dump before sleep and after to see what is changed.
