  1. Gateway GM5442 Working, With Caveats

    My sound is now working: 2 spkr through line output in rear and headphones in front, all I can test. Okay- Gateway GM5442: Processor: Intel® Core™2 Duo E4400 Dual Core Processor, both cores working; Chipset: Intel 945G chipset, obviously working; -Onboard Video: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 - disabled; Video Card: GeForce 7300 GT working, supported by install disc; Integrated Audio: Sigmatel 9227 codec- working, see notes; -Integrated Network: Intel 10/100 Mbps Ethernet LAN - disabled; Network Card: Dlink DGE-530T- working, see notes; Bluetooth: Ambicom BT2Usb dongle, working, supported by install disc. 1. Installed Kalyway 10.5.1 with EFI: 1A. Formatted a 120GB partition with Fat32 and labelled it OSX for ease of identification, using gparted from inside Ubuntu; 1B. At beginning of OSX install, used Disk Utility to erase the OSX partition and replace with HFS+ (case sensitive); 1C. Choose appropriate drivers and allow install to finish; 1D. At end of install, rebooted into OSX computer without network or sound. 2. Network setup: 2A. Downloaded Kext Helper b7 to thumb drive in Ubuntu (http://the-eckels.com/files/KextHelperb7.zip); 2B. Downloaded network card driver skge-e.kext (http://the-eckels.com/files/skge-e.kext.zip); 2C. Installed network card driver skge-e.kext by dragging skge-e.kext file onto Kext Helper b7, and rebooted. Configured network card following reboot. 3. Sound setup: 3A. Downloaded AppleHDAPatcher_v1.16 from Taruga (http://the-eckels.com/files/AppleHDAPatcher-v1.16.zip); 3B. Did own codec dump for sound card from Ubuntu Studio (http://the-eckels.com/files/sigmatel9227.zip); 3C. Installed sound driver by dragging sigmatel9227.txt onto AppleHDAPatcher_v1.16, patiently watching, and rebooting when appropriate. 4. Post install: 4A. Created post outlining hardware specs including computer model for easy searching by other newbies; 4B. Donated to Taruga and Kalyway, as I'm able to do this only because of their hard work; 4C. Started saving for Apple retail copy of OSX in order to "get right." Mostly right.

    I've sent you a private message regarding sound problems in Ubuntu.

    Okay, using Kalyway 10.5.1 SSE2 SSE3, System Preferences >> Sound showed an output device of HDA audio of some sort, but didn't actually put sound out through any of the jacks or front panel headphone jack. I then: 1. Downloaded Apple HDA Patcher v1.20; 2. Did my own linux codec dump (attached below as Sigmatel9227); 3. Renamed the codec dump to exclude the .txt extension; 4. Dragged the codec dump onto the HDA patcher, which spouted some text and pinout info (attached below as HDA-Out); 5. Rebooted, to find that I now have no audio devices. Which bit am I doing wrong? add'l: I also repaired permissions afterward, which had no effect. add'l: I also tried the codec dump including the .txt extension, and repaired permissions, to no avail. sigmatel9227.txt HDA_Out.rtf

    Hi! I'm a OSX and OSX86 noob, but not a retard- I can make various Linux work, but am totally unfamiliar with OSX. I still can't figure out how to get audio working. ------------------- What Hardware/Software I Have: ------------------- Gateway GM5442 desktop, specifically Intel 945G mobo with integrated HDA using Sigmatel 9227 (product info: http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009459/1009459sp3.shtml , http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009459/1009459cl2.shtml ) JaS 10.4.8 loading kernel 8.8.1 ------------------- What I Have Done -------------------- 1. Read 50+ posts in this thread regarding HDA; 2. Tried Taruga's patchers #1.09, 1.12, 1.14, 1.16, 1.20 with stac9227_83847618_testing.txt, and some other 9227.txt I found. -------------------- Results So Far -------------------- Every patcher results in the grey screen/"Must reboot your computer" message, presumably a kernel panic. I realize this may be all I can expect. My question is: is this what I should be doing, or I am doing some other foolish thing incorrectly? Is there a standard methodology that I'm missing, thereby hindering my efforts? Thank you for your help: I'm looking forward to making this work!
