In Topic: OSX Yosemite - Console No Messages

I had the same problem. The ASL data store is corrupted.
Use Terminal to stop the logging and delete the file:

sudo launchctl stop com.apple.syslogd
sudo rm /var/log/asl.db
sudo launchctl start com.apple.syslogd

kind regards,

In Topic: Yosemite: Audio - Realtek ALC AppleHDA

Thank you for providing this script for Clover audio. Got it to work for my ALC885/ALC889a sound on my GA-EX58-UD5 board.


I had to make a change in your v100 script to get it to complete without errors. It would abort when installing the zml files.

The following is the last few lines of the script's output:

Install System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/ALC885 zml files
rm: /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/Contents/Resources/*.zml.zlib: No such file or directory
 not supported with this script
No system files were changed
To save a Copy to this Terminal session: Terminal/Shell/Export Text As ...

Looking at the script, it appeared the 885 codec choice would fall through the case switch and exit, so I added (in red) the following, starting at line 825:

I also changed the codec reporting variable.

Not really sure this is all proper, but it worked for me.

sudo install -m 644 -o root -g wheel /tmp/$gCodec/Platforms.xml.zlib  $gHDAContentsDirectory/Resources/Platforms.zml.zlib

sudo install -m 644 -o root -g wheel /tmp/$gCodec/layout1.xml.zlib  $gHDAContentsDirectory/Resources/layout1.zml.zlib 

case $gCodec in

# Added:

887|888|889|892|898 )
sudo install -m 644 -o root -g wheel /tmp/$gCodec/layout2.xml.zlib  $gHDAContentsDirectory/Resources/layout2.zml.zlib

sudo install -m 644 -o root -g wheel /tmp/$gCodec/layout3.xml.zlib  $gHDAContentsDirectory/Resources/layout3.zml.zlib
1150 )
sudo install -m 644 -o root -g wheel /tmp/$gCodec/layout2.xml.zlib  $gHDAContentsDirectory/Resources/layout2.zml.zlib

* )
echo "$gCodec not supported with this script"
echo "No system files were changed"
echo "To save a Copy to this Terminal session: Terminal/Shell/Export Text As ..."
exit 1


Thanks for all the work you do!


kind regards,



EDIT: Bummer. Don't know how to add red color to text in code tags.  :(

In Topic: Fusion Drive or not?

20 November 2014 - 05:22 PM

This is very interesting. But, I wonder if it just expects a capital "F" in "Fusion", because this is my output, drive created in Mavericks, but Terminal output from Yosemite:

diskutil cs info D2C8C77B-CDDF-46F5-98E1-629405D40026
Core Storage Properties:
   Role:                       Logical Volume Group (LVG)
   UUID:                       D2C8C77B-CDDF-46F5-98E1-629405D40026
   LVG Name:                   Fusion Drive
   LVG Version:                1
   LVG Size:                   1249576288256 B
   LVG Free Space:             0 B
   LVG Status:                 Online
   LVG Sparse:                 Yes
   Fusion Drive:               Yes

Interesting. Mine doesn't even say Yes or No for Fusion Drive, it just looks like this:

diskutil cs info 25BBC571-DF53-485D-B7AE-F4A553926A69
Core Storage Properties:
   Role:                       Logical Volume Group (LVG)
   UUID:                       25BBC571-DF53-485D-B7AE-F4A553926A69
   LVG Name:                   Fusion Drive
   LVG Version:                1
   LVG Size:                   868986765312 B
   LVG Free Space:             106496 B
   LVG Status:                 Online

I also noticed that diskutil cs list tells me I have 106.5 kb free on my LVG, which is clearly not the case, I actually have 399GB free.



I'm assuming that means that my LVG is NOT a true Fusion Drive. So is the trick for it being a Fusion drive to name it 'FUSION' or is it the disk repair part (or both)? Also where did you figure out this was the correct way to do it, or was it just trial and error?



Is this output from Yosemite or Mavericks?

I'm inclined to think "diskutil cs" has been updated in Yosemite, as the man page shows June 2014.


'diskutil info diskX' should reveal Fusion drive status, as well:

(Last few lines):

   This disk is a Core Storage Logical Volume (LV).  Core Storage Information:
   LV UUID:                  FC33E586-03D7-480A-B471-0E9B761B342C
   LVF UUID:                 50389DB3-53A2-4C16-AF3A-38983B199A6C
   LVG UUID:                 D2C8C77B-CDDF-46F5-98E1-629405D40026
   Fusion Drive:             Yes
   Encrypted:                No

I'm curious about where you got your DSDT file.



In Topic: Yosemite Final - Error at Sound assertion in AppleHDADriver and stuck

21 October 2014 - 03:14 AM

Ignore the sound assertion. It's not a problem.

The issue is not loading FakeSMC.kext.
Your log will show "Waiting for DSMOS...", followed by "DSMOS has arrived:" after a few lines. If "DSMOS has arrived" never occurs, the FakeSMC.kext is not doing its job - not loaded.


EDIT: toleda is more likely correct.
