  1. Thanks, but those are now called command line tools and are no longer packaged with Xcode 4.5, and yes they are installed. I think there is an update, so I'm checking on that. Obviously it is still in beta, so the caution still stands for Mountain Lion users. Just have a Lion install to fall back on if you compile your own sources. Update: md is definitely not packaged with command line tools:
  2. Hey Maj, I was working through your script and converting the code to something usable in Xcode when I came across an issue with the bootloader script. The script will download the newest sources but would fail the compile (make specifically). I attempted to manually compile via terminal and then in Xcode. Nothing worked. The error I am getting is.. gnumake[2]: md: No such file or directory It seems like some things have changed in ML or Xcode 4.5... My Lion system compiles fine, but maybe the beta Xcode or Command Line Tools are missing something. You may have to add a version check to prevent users from thinking their system is the issue. A quick way to add that with bash is through the defaults read command. Either that or try to detect the missing binary file "md" where ever that may be located... "defaults read /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist ProductVersion" - Update: the unix executable is missing in ML 10.8 Xcode 4.5 Beta. The executable can (possibly) be packaged in the script, or at least checked for in before compiling sources. The binary should be located in /usr/bin/ Here's the file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/rqb7t0s39dhuj0y/md.zip
  3. [HOW TO] Patch AppleHDA - Knowledge Base

    I know this is an old topic, but I have an old Intel D945-GCCR motherboard with a Realtek ALC883 that I'm trying to get audio working on. I used to use VoodooHDA, but it is causing panics on mountain lion. I have dumped the codec from linux, did all the necessary patching and info.plist edits, but have not been able to get the audio to output. I resorted to some legacy kexts and HDAenabler, which finally got the device recognized, but no sound. I think it is an address issue, since my codec dump indicates address 2, but the verbs for most ALC883's seem to be 1. I'm really at a loss now. If anyone can look at my codec dump and help with the info plist work, I would greatly appreciate the help. I usually just read all the guides and eventually learn enough to get everything working on my own, but it has been 3 days of working on it with no luck and I now hope someone with more knowledge can be nice enough to lend a hand... Thanks in advance, Wolfienuke Files: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/smozri98lfeeupk/Y0WVlBcRPt
  4. I'm on Mountain Lion GM and since I only use 2-channel audio, I can't remark on 5.1 or digital out, but everything is working great other than that. 2-Channel audio works OOTB with the OP's modified DSDT. I haven't had any CMOS resets after sleep, I have even verified that WakeOnLAN works. Boot time is amazing with kernelcache and kextcache (kextcache needed kexts to be in S/L/E and not E/E).
  5. What's up guys? Haven't checked in for some time and decided to let you guys know that Mountain Lion GM is working fine on the GA-EX58-UD5, but you probably know that! Anyway, Maj, I know it's been a while but I have some time off if you need any scripting help. I've actually been trying to fix some little issues with the UD5, particularly the default system audio device which is set incorrectly for every new user. You know your board is running good when you spend days trying to fix a problem that literally takes 2 seconds to solve manually. But hey, you learn a lot that way! I don't know what Maj will do about upgrading, but I hear these amazing new Gigabyte boards with UEFI are easy hacks! I'm trying to convince my nephew who just bought a Z77 board to hack it, but he's stuck on windows for some reason. I've had my GA-EX58-UD5 and i7 920 since the beginning with Maj and have enjoyed it completely. I've definitely got my money's worth from this setup, but I don't yet feel that it's completely outdated. The F13 bios with quick boot along with kernel cache and kext cache make the boot times fast and native power management work fine with little modification. Other than some audio issues I had lately (which were because of unnecessary AppleHDA and DSDT changes, this board and cpu are here to stay for me. Maybe a nice new case is in order just to make it look newer!
  6. I really need some help here... I have been having sound issues for a while, and I cannot seem to find the problem. I either have no audio or choppy and jittery audio. Motherboard: GA-EX58-UD5 ALC889A I'm looking for a simple 2-channel stereo audio setup with little kext modification. I have my unmodified DSDT and many other DSDT's that I have been trying to play around with and no luck has been found. If anyone can take a quick look at my files and tell me what the problem may be? Thanks so much! -Wolfie http://dl.dropbox.com/u/21172649/ModifiedDSDTSSDT.zip http://dl.dropbox.com/u/21172649/unmodified_gaex58ud5_f12.dsl.zip http://dl.dropbox.com/u/21172649/AppleHDA.kext.zip
  7. I have some audio problems again with my setup, and I am just wondering if anyone has a foolproof audio fix for the GA-EX58-UD5. I can modify DSDT and change any files, but I'm looking for a solution with minimal changes to the file system. My issue is popping and stuttering while using a modified DSDT and AppleHDA.kext Can anyone lend me a hand?
  8. Worked like a charm! Thanks... For some reason I overlooked that kext since I had JMicron36xSATA.kext installed and I didn't notice the subtle difference.
  9. ----Edit---- Nevermind... My AppleHDA.kext wasn't patched! Oops But I now am not detecting my DVD (optical) drive. It is IDE so I may have to change that out for sata... ------------ Hey Maj, It's been a long while since I first started working with the EX58-UD5. It has be my all time favorite build and has held up great for a first gen i7 board! It has been working like a champ until I performed a new 10.7 install on my new SSD hard drive. For some reason, my audio is no longer working. I have a patched dsdt.aml but I don't know if that is the problem. I have attached my extra folder along with the extensions I have in S/L/E. I also attached a screenshot of system profiler and the sound preferences panel. If anyone else can help me find out what is wrong with my setup, please let me know. I am also on F12 bios and vanilla kernel with no other system modifications other than the added extensions in the attached file. And Maj, great work on your script. It's much more complex than when we first started! It's helped me out on quite a few occasions! Thanks in advance, Wolfie Lion.zip
  10. Ok, I made the decision to update to the new chameleon 2.0RC1, but I used the package to install it instead of a manual install (I should have known)... Here's what I did: Erased and partitioned an unused disk (So that if sh*t goes wrong - like it did - I would not kill my working install). I installed Mac OS X 10.5 to the newly created partition. I removed/installed required kexts. I installed Chameleon 2.0RC1, Voodoo kernel 9.6.0, and kexts on EFI partition, and rebooted. No luck... So I decided to manually install Chameleon/Voodoo on the EFI partition and I got much further (I also replaced mach_kernel on the system partition as well as noted a few posts above. I guess my problem is that I have made so many changes that I don't know where it all went wrong. Are there any simple tips to get chameleon working on the EFI Partition?
  11. Hey MAJ, Just looking into the thread. Looks like there are much more i7 users now - which is a real good thing! Unfortunately, times have been real tough for me, and I have not been able to keep up as much as I wanted to. I am also looking into buying a house, so as soon as that gets going I will not be back up for some time. I see that you have a working VMWare on your i7. Can you give detailed specifics on your setup so that I can get VMWare working as well (Since we have the same hardware)? Type of Install (EFI/Modified Vanilla) Kernel/Version Added/Modified/Removed kexts Any other modifications that affect system operation. Thanks for all the work you have done, and good luck to the rest of the new i7 users. I believe we will see some great progress once 10.5.7 is released with native i7 support!
  12. I don't want to sound like an a-hole, but can we try to stay on topic? This thread was made for Core i7 and GA-EX58-UD5 specific issues. Any graphics or non-motherboard related issues should be discussed in their specific forums. I just don't want this thread to get out of hand like the old thread. I still have a few outstanding issues (most importantly VMWare Fusion), incorrect/missing RAM specs in System Profiler and some other smaller issues. I am also waiting for the new Chameleon boot loader so I can add it to my scripts (since it will work from EFI Partition) My system has been incredibly stable and has since moved from my desk (for tweaking and troubleshooting) to a new Antec case. Other than crashing with Fusion, my system has been up 24/7 for over a month now.
  13. So, MAJ... I know I've been away for a while, and I apologize, but my father passed away. It's been real strange since then. Anyway, I have been catching up on the i7 posts and see that you have gotten VMWare Fusion to run by starting the launch daemon. Are there any logs pertaining to the daemon quitting?
  14. Also, you can try Kalyway distro with Kabyl kernel. That's the first kernel that I tried that worked well. I would recommend Vanilla install with Voodoo-based 9.6.0 kernel, but whatever gets your rig up and running is a step in the right direction.
  15. Thanks for the HDA update... Works flawlessly now!
