  1. Audio Driver - Sigmatel 9220

    Any idea as of why i get that error in the terminal? Im new to mac so excuse my noobness.
  2. Audio Driver - Sigmatel 9220

    Hey guys i finally got my 10.5.1 to work on my pc, the only problem I am having is my audio. I have a sigmatel 9220 sound card for my dell dimension 5100. I followed the directions below but everytime I try the Fourth line i get rm: /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache: No such file or directory. This was posted by pee_riz:{ 1. Download AppleHDA.kext from 10.4.3 (attached in zip format). 2. Copy to /System/Library/Extensions/ and replace original (backup would be a good idea). 3. Open Terminal 4. Type "sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache" 5. Type "sudo kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions 6. Open up Disk Utility 7. Choose the "Repair Disk Permissions" button. It should start up. It may or may not fix things... Mine didn't repair anything, but I did is as a precaution. 8. Reboot. 9. Open up System Preferences/Sound to confirm audio. I have both output and input, but I have to check inputs. 10. My audio is coming out of the subwoofer port (black). I would try all of them if it doesn't work with black. " after this i wanted my hi def sound working, so i can across this page - http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=32859 and downloaded the HDApatcher v1.16, then went to - http://psykopat.free.fr/apple/AppleHDA/ and downloaded the codec dump named "codec_sigma9220.txt" i put the HDApatcher in System/Librarys/Extensions then dragged and dropped the codec dump file on the patcher icon, followed the instructions and rebooted once it told me to and hey presto, i have the audio comming out the green terminal let me know how yous all get on Pee_riz. } Any ideas of why i get that error or any other ideas in general on how to fix my audio? Thanks much
  3. LOL! you guys are awesome. I was not able to make it work on my intel board so i pulled out my second computer a dell dimension 5100 and put that same hard drive we just worked on into it. It boots up like a charm! Now i have 2 problems and if you guys help me i promise not to keep bothering you. I can't get the ethernet to work or the sound. I have sigmatel sound card and intel ve100 network card. Anyhelp please and i swear i wont bother you guys anymore!
  4. Okay i restared it and this time typed rd-disk0s1 -v and it went to the apple screen again with the circile loading. after 2 mins there is a circle with an X through it right on top of the apple. The circle is still spinning but I don't think anything is happening.
  5. Ok how long should we let it sit? its been about 5 mins now. Just let me know, im waiting for your que.Did i have to remove the cd in the drive or just leave it in?
  6. See the thing is i'm only using 1 partition i don't need windows at the moment i just want to experiment with the mac osx on the one 80gb hard drive.You are the man! It went passed that screen but now its sitting on the Apple screen for about 2 mins is it frozen?Ok it boots up into the apple screen now with that spinning thing but its been sitting there for 5 mins should i wait or did i do something wrong again?
  7. Vapor thanks for the response I will try what you said. IF this works I will send you a million virtual dollars:). I will try again now.While its installing can i ask what a vanilla kernal is? I don't understand macs much thats why im trying to install it. Oh and also is that the reason it is showing hd(0,1) and hd(0,2) on the boot menu?Also should i use GUID or MBR, i only have 1 80gb hard drive and I dont need windows for now whcih is a better choice? thanks much give me 30 minutes to reinstall and i'll repost.Just out of curiosity should i leave the disk in when i restart or take it out?Ive read many posts and some say leave it in (to run it live or for it to run off some file) and some say take it out.thanks,
  8. Im having trouble booting up mac osx 10.5.1 after a successful install. I think I know what the problem is but i don't know how to fix it. I have an intel motherboard (d865GSA) with 2.6ghz intel pentium D processor. After the install I get the boot menu which countsdown and is suppose to boot leopard, but it jsut restarts. I click any button during the boot and it brings a menu with two partitions on one sata drive. It says:hd(0,1)hd(0,2) OSXand then the -v stuff. When i hit enter on the hd(0,2) it says loading darwin and restarts. When i hit hd(0,1) it says load system disk. During the installation I followed all of the instructions correctly.1. I went to diskutility-->chose my hard drive, went to partition and put 1 partition. did mac osx extended journal, went to options and did GUID. Since i don't want windows on this computer from what ive read everyone says pick GUID. SO after tI hit apply.2. Then i hit customize, pick the vanilla kernal, the drivers, and for the EFI boot i choose GUID. When i restart i get two hard drives showing up and never seems to load.I know im doing something wrong if my computer is showing two partitions in the bootloader please help guys any ideas why im showing two hd's? Oh i also tried loading in -x, and -s, and -vanilla they all restart.Please i would very much appreciate it.In addition when it boots it boots preety quickly and its hard to see the message, i pressed pause on the keyboard and here is the exact messege it gives before restarting.Loading Darwin x/86EFI enhanced bootloader build:TOHusing smbios table found at 0x000F7420using ACPI RSDP revision 0 found at 0x000f6160Starting Darwin /x86then reboots, please any help would be appreciated ive spent a week on this thing its driving me crazy!Very sorry about the messy writing, this thing is driving me nuts let me recap.Kalyway 10.5.1 dvd.1. boot from cd2.disk util ->partiton1->options-->GUID-->apply.

  11. Hi all this is my first post so if i do anything incorrectly i apologize. I just recently installed 10.4.4 by kalaway on my dell 5100. The installation went well but when I turn on the computer if I don't boot in by "-x" the computer gives a kernal error and stays there. If i boot with "-x" it boots through but I have problems with my network card and sound. I also noticed that "-x" boots through safe mode. How can i change this boot so i can boot in regular mode? Please help.
