#1876858 VoodooHDA with fix for random KP

Posted by neurostatic on 31 December 2012 - 11:58 AM

It's best to boot with "-f" after freshly installing it, because sometimes there's a stale copy in kernelcache. Anyhow, I can't read the stack trace because of the "You need to restart your computer" window that's hiding the crash address in VoodooHDA (it's that line with 7f81dc...). If it's still giving you KPs after booting with "-f", look for a panic log in /Library/Logs/DiagonsticReports and upload it. Sorry about the restart box, takes less than a second to appear and block the text. Will try right now. Edit: Tried with -f, and it crashed right away. Didn't change anything after, and it doesn't seem to generate a panic log either, i made sure to delete all logs before rebooting, and i find nothing in /Library/Logs/... /Users/.../Library/Logs/... There are files that were generated in /Private/var/log but nothing that seems to concern the KP. I tried to snap a picture in the half a second where the message i...

#1876353 GT610 on 10.7.2

Got It! I did the combo update to 10.7.5, then booted with -s to remove S/L/E/NV* and S/L/E/Ge* (I played too much the kexts and probably had conflicting versions anyway) as i was unable to boot into the desktop otherwise. I then downloaded the retail Nvidia drivers for 10.7.5 here: http://www.nvidia.co...f02-driver.html I left the new NVDAGF100hal untouched, didn't seem to contain any device id's anyway. Rebooted and got full resolution and QE/CI. Thanks @rampage for your info, it actually pointed me in the right direction! Hope this helps someone else! Edit: This might also help people with newer versions such as Mountain Lion - I saw a few posts from people having similar issues (unable to get to the desktop after reboot), so my guess is that it might be worth it to try clean S/L/E from the non-working kexts and get the retail nvidia drivers for the specific version of OS X being used.
