Help with Realtek ALC860 Audio!

23 February 2011 - 08:18 PM

Hey everyone, I have been working on getting a perfect Snow Leopard install for the past week, and I can't seem to get audio working!

Here are some basic specs:

Intel Pentium 4
Realtek ALC860 (DEV: 0880 and VEN: 10EC) **This is what Windows 7 tells me, and the Realtek program in Windows tells me that it is an ALC860 codec...

I just got through updating to 10.6.6 from iAtkos S3 10.6.3

I had to patch ethernet myself and all that, but everything is now working perfectly EXCEPT audio!

I have tried installing the VoodooHDA kext, but I get a kernel panic on every reboot... :(
Even after uninstalling AppleHDA, I get the kernel panic with VoodooHDA.. so I booted into safe mode and removed the damn kext and now I am running fine in normal mode... Can someone please help me with this issue? Audio was supposed to be the easiest thing to fix and it has turned out to be a {censored} to patch/ find the right kexts..
Any help will be greatly appreciated! :)

Quick Question Regarding 10.6.6 Upgrade [Pentium 4]

23 February 2011 - 03:17 AM

Hey I'm wondering if anyone can help me.. I have a Gateway 700GR with a Pentium 4 CPU, 2 GB RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce 9500GT.

I'm running iAtkos S3 10.6.3 and everything works except ethernet and audio (that's not my problem though) :P

I am about to update to 10.6.6 via the Combo Update and I am wondering what I need to do to not get a kernel panic after updating. I have read all over the internet that I need to delete the SleepEnabler.kext and that's it. I am going to use ##### after the update, but it doesn't have any options to install a modded kernel for my Pentium 4. I am wondering what I need to do in order to update safely and install a modded kernel after the update.. Any help is appreciated! -_-

Also, I am dual booting with Windows 7 and I really don't want to install the bootloader and all that {censored} again if this update ends badly. lol

New OS X86 Install Help

17 June 2010 - 09:16 PM

Hey everyone, I am trying to install Mac on my friend's computer and he has some unusual hardware. :D I have already installed mac on my laptop successfully and all I need to know is what distro is compatible with the hardware. I also need to know, once I install the base OS, what extra kexts I need and where to get them. I have done some research but I couldn't find much. I was going to do a Kalyway or and iPC install, but they dont provide the kexts that I need.
Also, this is a 64 bit CPU. FYI

Here is my friend's Configuration:

This computer is from Europe (Slovenia), and I need to know basically where to get the kexts for the extra hardware. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help. ;)
