  1. 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!

    thanks a lot zenith, I will try your updated version a bit later and post back the results. cheers
  3. 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 ?
  4. VoodooHDA with fix for random KP

    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)
  5. 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.

    no luck. I'm using Lion 10.7.2. And merry Christmas!
  7. 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]
  8. Modded ALC662 & Sigmatel 9223 with codec verbs

    Yes!! where all else failed, VoodooHDA works - perfectly! --------------- OS X 10.5.4 / Intel Core Duo @ 2.4GHz / 3GB ram / 1.4TB Storage Asrock Wolfdale1333-D667 R2.0 nVidia 8600 GTS
  9. Modded ALC662 & Sigmatel 9223 with codec verbs

    ok. I've read the whole thread, tried if not every kext provided, still to no avail. I have an el-cheapo Asrock wolfdale1333-d6667 r2.0 mobo, and so far the only thing working (out only) is the Azalia kext. But, what i'm interested into getting to work (aside from output, obviously) is line IN.. i dont care about front panels or digital/spdif. Most of the kexts i tried here make system profiler display the proper inputs and 662 id.. yet, even if OS X believes sound is working just fine, it stays silent no matter what output i select, just like many before me stated. Now, what's so different about this board's implementation of the ALC662 ?? Gigabyte owners seems to have the most success, and Asus owners seems to be able to get it to work too.. Did i skip over an important piece of info or something, like.. did any one get sound inputs to work on an Asrock board ? Any info/pointer would be greatly appreciated!
  10. hi, i've been running Leopard (10.5.2, recently 10.5.4) for some time, and it's running so flawlessly that i ditched windoze pretty much for good (ok, i still use it in parallels once in a while..) Now, this is not really a problem but more of an annoyance: I have an onboard GMA 950 wich is supported and works perfectly (QE, max res. etc) when i set it up as the primary adapter via the bios. Now, i also have a pci express nVidia 8600 GTS, wich also works perfectly when i put the priority to pcie... (dual screen, 1680x1050 and 1920x1200 on my main screen, QE, etc with nvinject) I can switch to one or the other between reboots, but i am unable to have them both enabled at the same time, like i used to do on windows.. Normally, leaving the priority to the onboard adapter would still allow the nVidia card to be detected by windows. Is it possible to do this under leopard, and if so, how ? I'd really love to use that extra lcd that's picking dust to complete my matrix-style setup here ;] the more real estate, the better.. thanx!
