    ALC889 No sound 10.7.2

    You need to patch your DSDT too Search the Pin Configurations for ALC889 Try this Device (HDEF) { Name (_ADR, 0x001B0000) Method (_PRW, 0, NotSerialized) { Return (Package (0x02) { 0x0D, 0x05 }) } Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { Store (Package (0x04) { "layout-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x79, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00 }, "PinConfigurations", Buffer (Zero) {} }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } And the Kext in attachment, be sure to delete every kext you installed to make sound work. And give it a try (: 1714-AppleHDA.kext_ALC889_10.7.1_v2.zip
  2. Thanks for your reply, but it's not really what I mean. The point is, Audi-midi setup works, but I can't 'tell' that setup to use 4 speakers as front audio, with center and sub. Only thing I can configure is either 5.1, or stereo. Stereo would be the thing if it let me enable my center and sub which it doesn't. And if I try to set the rear speakers to the same channel as front ( 1 and 2 ) and try to apply that it's saying all channels need to be different, and can't use it that way. EDIT: works now with a Multioutput Device, though he puts all channels in 'Stereo' it works. The perfectionist I am is still wondering if it's possible to really set it to sub/center/front. instead of 6 channels stereo. But i'm happy it works this way
  3. So I was wondering, I got my sound fully working ( ALC889a ). with 5.1 setup, and I want to know if it's possible to setup things the way I want? In windows, I could select like, 4 front speakers, a center and a sub ( Cause I don't use 5.1 anymore ) Can't seem to find this option in OSX ( if there is any? ) Does anybody know if it's possible? Even by third party I don't care as long as it's possible(: Thanks

    ATI Native drivers

    Really want to give this a try but download link is down?! Can someone provide us with de Beta4a1 files? Thanks!
  5. Hi, I have been looking around for a while to find some information about support for the Sapphire HD6950 2GB.(or the 6950 itself for that matter) Is it already possible to have full CI/QE support on this card? I tried searching but I only find incomplete posts about full resolution support but no CI/QE. Also read alot about flashing to a 6970 rom? If that card is fully supported I would give that a shot. Thanks in advance.
  6. Supercomputer, rofl. Anyway, try using a distro first for starting iAtkos for example.

    Unable to boot OSX Lion 10.7.2

    Bump. I read something about lion not using the extensions.mkext anymore. Is that correct? Do i have to put the kexts into S/L/E?.
  8. Hi all, I'm having trouble booting into lion after combo update 10.7.2. This is what i get when booting with -v http://img854.imageshack.us/img854/5663/im...11110234417.jpg And i get the still waiting for root device when booting with -v -x. http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/7260/im...11110234228.jpg System: X48-DS5 Intel Q9550 HD6950
  9. Hi all, I'm having some trouble booting into Lion, After the Apple logo ( or all the text in verbose mode ) it goes into a white screen with just a cursor that i can move around. I tried numberous of commands like -v -x graphicsenabler=yes/no busratio=21(read that somewhere dunno what is does) but i just won't let me in. now the funny thing is that the Lion installer boots perfectly with high resolution etc. I looked up in single user mode what kexts where installed and those are the same as on the USB installer. nothing more nothing less. ( ElliottForeLegacyRTC.kext, FakeSMC.kext, NullCPUPowermanagement.kext ) And in /Extra my own DSDT.aml. Any help is welcome, normally i find everything with search but this one is really bothering me. Specs: Intel Quadcore Q9550 GA-X48-DS5 Ati HD6950 2GB IF more info is needed please ask, imma take some sleep now. Screen of what it does:
  10. Try creating a DSDT for your motherboard http://www.kexts.com/view/459-dsdt_simple_...se)_v1.4.3.html if you don't know what it does. you really need to get into that and google it up.

    BIOS Keeps resetting...

    Try using DSDTse (a.k.a DSDT Simple Editor). you can open your DSDT in there, edit it. and click install etc. very handy

    Hi, I'm trying to get hibernate working but it's bugging me I use a DSDT wich is customized and everything works (sound,restart/shutdown etc) except for Hibernate. When i try to get into hibernate modus the screen goes black in less then a sec. hearing the HDD shutdown. but rest stays on. all fans and powerled stay on. Can't seem to resume the system either and have to hard reset after that. My motherboard is the Gigabyte X48-DS5. EDIT: Also. a minor bug. when shutting down. my Logitech G15 leds blink every second after shutdown Have to Replug keyboard in order to stop that.

  14. I disabled the option that my HDD's go to sleep after a certain time. that did the job.
