    VoodooHDA with fix for random KP

    ... aaand back from the dead, 8 months later.. I've been busy recording so i decided not to experiment with the drivers.. Thanks Zenith for your work - I now tried 2.7.6d2, 2.8.1 and 2.8.2d6, and they all seem to get rid of the KP, but unfortunately they also get rid of my onboard sound card... I'm using an HDTV for my screen and it's connected via HDMI.. Using the updated kexts only allow me to select those digital out, but no HD audio with line in/outs - which is what i need. Mixing through an old LG 37LD450's speakers is far from optimal ;] I rolled back to my random KP inducing kext, which i can live with since once started it's running fine. Thanks a lot anyway, and glad I could help a little!

    VoodooHDA with fix for random KP

    Sorry about the restart box, takes less than a second to appear and block the text. Will try right now. Edit: Tried with -f, and it crashed right away. Didn't change anything after, and it doesn't seem to generate a panic log either, i made sure to delete all logs before rebooting, and i find nothing in /Library/Logs/... /Users/.../Library/Logs/... There are files that were generated in /Private/var/log but nothing that seems to concern the KP. I tried to snap a picture in the half a second where the message is visible, which resulted in the blurry image attached to this post. Tell me if you can make out the important bits, otherwise I can try to take a better one, but it's a pain in the a** to try that way. Btw, it just occurred to me - does -v force the console output to be logged on file ?

    nope... 4 KP's in a row, went through on the 5th. At least it doesn't want to tear my speakers anymore when loading and it fixed the clipping sound issues.. Motherboard (old and cheap, i know, but works fine): Asrock Wolfdale1333-D667 R2.0 W/Patched bios HD Audio (Realtek ALC662 Audio Codec)

    GT610 on 10.7.2

    Got It! I did the combo update to 10.7.5, then booted with -s to remove S/L/E/NV* and S/L/E/Ge* (I played too much the kexts and probably had conflicting versions anyway) as i was unable to boot into the desktop otherwise. I then downloaded the retail Nvidia drivers for 10.7.5 here: http://www.nvidia.co...f02-driver.html I left the new NVDAGF100hal untouched, didn't seem to contain any device id's anyway. Rebooted and got full resolution and QE/CI. Thanks @rampage for your info, it actually pointed me in the right direction! Hope this helps someone else! Edit: This might also help people with newer versions such as Mountain Lion - I saw a few posts from people having similar issues (unable to get to the desktop after reboot), so my guess is that it might be worth it to try clean S/L/E from the non-working kexts and get the retail nvidia drivers for the specific version of OS X being used.

    GT610 on 10.7.2

    Ok so I've been trying unsuccessfully to get an Nvidia GT610 1GB low-profile to work on my 10.7.2 install for a while now.And Yes, i tried searching all over the forum/google. I tried editing the strings in NVDAGF100Hal.kext, GraphicsEnable=yes, updating to the last chameleon, deleting all NV*/Ge* kexts, tried injectors, reinstalled original kexts from base system pkg, then ###### (even the one for ML) and also tried to make some sense out of rampage's instructions (from this topic ... "copy my device"in ioreg? where??) but to no avail and thats about where i abandoned. I never had to patch a dsdt before, aside from that time where i've ruined my install. So frankly i'd rather avoid having to do it again. I just upgraded from an en210 that worked fine, and system profiler detects my card correctly with the proper amount of ram, but no QE/CL. Any way to get this card working in 10.7.x or am I missing something? [edit, stupid autocorrect]
