  1. Finally, working sound! Two issues: the well-known distortion after 10 minutes or so bug, and I can't get 5.1 surround working. I can choose 5.1 in the Audio Midi Utility and set them up (the white noise plays in all 6 speakers properly when clicking on them) but no 5.1 while playing iTunes, video files, or a DVD. The audio output only allows changes to 1 and 2; M and 3-8 are grayed out. My card is the Audigy 2 ZS Gamer. Finally, working sound!

  2. Only 5 days to go until everything's working on my OSX install. The onboard audio may work, but I didn't feel like moving everything to the onboard audio.

    Realtek 850 on AS Rock

    My audio works even though system profiler says there is no audio. Be sure to check all the audio ports (even the mic port) to make sure the audio isn't coming out of there. Check the Audio/MIDI Setup Utility and see if it is detecting anything.

    [HowTo] Building my first OSx86 box...

    I find it much easier to put the heat sink on the board before installing the board. Your Arctic Silver application is right on. I clean my heatsinks and heat spreaders (the metal over the chip) with rubbing alcohol before applying a rice grain sized amount of AS5 to the spreader. Then I lock the heat sink into place. Having the motherboard out of the case makes it easier to line up and clamp down the heat sink. Looking good so far! --SS

    realtek AC 97 driver

    Try the line out port if you have one. That's where my sound comes out (I have Realtek sound on an Asus P4P800-E Deluxe motherboard).

    Realtek ALC850 Audio Problems

    Well... don't know exactly what I did, but it's working. I had to put it in the Line Out for it to work, but it indeed works.

    Realtek ALC850 Audio Problems

    A new discovery. I loaded the Audio MIDI Utility just to see what happens and it turns out that apparently the input side is working and detects AC97 audio; however, the ouput side says "Output is not supported." Any ideas??

    Realtek ALC850 Audio Problems

    I forgot to mention that the Realtek audio's ID is listed in the Info.plist for AppleAC97 kext under ICH5 I believe (not in front of it at the moment).

    Realtek ALC850 Audio Problems

    My board is not an nForce board (it's an Intel 865pe chipset) and I am running 10.4.3. Those kexts are also for 10.4.1 according to a post in that thread. Everything else (except the nic, but I have worked around that) works on my board (SATA, PATA, USB, FireWire, etc).

    EFI booting thread

    Very interesting. Did the computer freeze after the "Press any key to boot from CD..." or what? You may be onto something here.
  11. I installed 10.4.3 with the guide here: http://www.profit42.com/guides.php?id=1. I didn't follow it exactly because I had a blank hard drive to use, however the ISO is exactly what that page would result in (Jas v4.2b patched 10.4.3 1111a ISO) The system: Intel P4 Northwood (Socket 478) 2.4GHz ASUS P4P800-E Deluxe Motherboard Realtek ACL850 Onboard Audio (ID 0x24D58086) Marvell Yukon Onboard Gigabit LAN (does not work in OSX) Netgear FA311 10/100 Ethernet Adapter (works) ATI All-In-Wonder 9600 Pro 128 MB Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS (not working in OSX) I have the AppleAC97Audio.kext (version 1.0) installed. It is listed in System Profiler; however its dependencies are incomplete. The following line appears: com.apple.iokit.IOAudioFamily: No valid version of this dependency can be found AppleAC97AudioIntelICH.kext (version 1.0) is also listed. It is missing two dependencies. com.apple.driver.AppleAC97Audio: No valid version of this dependency can be found com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily: No valid version of this dependency can be found I have searched the forums and wiki for a while without results. I deleted the ATI kexts, followed the wiki's audio guide, and tried other things like plugging the speakers into the mic port. I am not good with low-level Mac OS X stuff and any detailed help would be appreciated. Thanks for your assistance.
