Hi, I have my Hackintosh up and running, but the only problem is that the audio stutters quite alot.
I think it might have to do with VoodooHDA not recognizing my jack ports (look in attachment).

If VoodooHDA could recognize them, i could tick the "Use SSE2" and it would solve the problem, right?

If I uninstall VoodooHDA the audio stops playing so it must work somehow?

Why don't you use a patched AppleHDA rather than voodoo?
Personally I'd only use voodoo as a last resort.

Can you link me a guide that you know works? I'm not sure if i have tried it...

The original AppleHDA for 10.6.8 is that version 1.7.9?

I'm not sure which version is for 10.6.8.
There are many ways to get AppleHDA working, either through an enabler kext, dsdt edit or efi string. Personally I would use a dsdt edit.

Do you have a dsdt compiled for your system?

I have tried using ####### and the enabler kexts, but then i lost audio completely.


I don't use DSDT. I don't have a reason not to, it was just simpler somehow to do it without.

Ok, no problem.
I use 889a as well and do so via dsdt edit, if you extract your dsdt and post it I can help you patch it for audio.

Thanks! That would be awesome!


I used DSDTSE to extract it, if that is important?


I can't post it here directly, but i have attached it in a txt file.

Please zip/compress your dsdt, then upload the zip.

Really not sure about that.
Try posting this in the dsdt section, you just need HDEF injection.
