  1. Displays in System Preferences will not open

    XploRa: May I ask how exactly you fixed it?
  2. Displays in System Preferences will not open

    Hey, I have the same problem, together with all toolbar icons missing. Did you by any chance install the 3rd-party Combo-Update?
  3. DP4 - Graphics Problems

    I have a simular problem: Ever since upgrading from DP1 to DP6, Quicklook doesn't work, I get weird graphics errors, can't access Spotlight on my second screen and oh yeah, all my default toolbar icons are gone (in Finder, Xcode, etc.) Running DP7 now on a GIGABYTE Z68XP-UD4 with a XFX AMD 6870 GPU, using CloverEFI and a MacMini 5,1 SMBIOS. Anybody got a solution?

    antaeus: What version of Chameleon are you using? You should be using r1820.
  5. ALC 883 on P5N-D again

    Apparently it didn't work, so it checked out the AppleHDA.kext patching thread but verbit doesn't work (gives me a "ERROR: This doesn't appear to be an alsa codec dump file " error). Can somebody patch me a AppleHDA.kext with the attached codec dump made directly from Ubuntu? Tobias ALC883.txt
  6. ALC 883 on P5N-D again

    I'm guessing that both of our motherboards use exactly the same audio chip, so I'll try that tomorrow.
  7. Hey guys, So I decided to bite the bullet, and since I already had access to it anyway, installed Mountain Lion on my hackintosh. Everything works, except my audio. I have an ASUS P5N-D motherboard with an nForce 750i chipset and a Realtek ALC883 audio codec. I already have a patched DSDT (thanks to verdant), which allows me to see the "Intel High Definition Audio Device" in System Profiler. Now what i need is a properly patched AppleHDA.kext to allow me to use my SPDIF output, but i couldn't find one yet. I don't want to use VoodooHDA. since it always resets the audio settings on boot. I know I could script that, but I just want it to work natively. Oh, and i also know that I desperately need to upgrade to one of these fancy Gigabyte UD-series motherboards but, we'll see about that when I have the money. Thank you guys in advance for your awesome work Tobias

    Thanks for the link, I had instant success with the kext from the linked thread. The only thing that's missing is the SPDIF output, What do I need to change? Thanks Tobias
  9. XFX Radeon HD 6870 on Lion

    Oh, yeah, my bad, that was just a typo here when typing it into the forum But I would love a native resolution bootloader, can you (or somebody else) help me patch my GPU ROM to include a 1920x1080x32 VESA mode, since it ca only, for whatever reason, do 1920x1440 and not 1080 (from ?video). Also, the only problem I now get after setting the framebuffer and everything is that I have to click around and hit ctrl-shift-eject a couple of times before I get the normal desktop, otherwise I just get random junk on the screen. I've attached my GPU BIOS, so If anyone can patch it, or at least tell me how exactly I should do so, please do. I know about the other VESA modes thread, but I'm still trying to get my head around all this stuff. Tobias 6870DF_Unpatched.bin.zip
  10. XFX Radeon HD 6870 on Lion

    So, it turns out I'm running Duckweed by default: (without GE) | | | | | +-o ATY,Duckweed@0 <class AtiFbStub, id 0x1000002ce, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (5083 ms), reta$ | | | | | +-o ATY,Duckweed@1 <class AtiFbStub, id 0x1000002cf, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (34 ms), retain$ | | | | | +-o ATY,Duckweed@2 <class AtiFbStub, id 0x1000002d0, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (44 ms), retain$ | | | | | +-o ATY,Duckweed@3 <class AtiFbStub, id 0x1000002d1, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (5 ms), retain $ I currently have my 2 monitors working fine, with one on HDMI and the other via MDP. But then again, I'd really like to run things like DVD-Player and GB. Also, I'd love it for my bootscreen to be nativer resolution (1920x1080). I tried putting in: <key>Graphics Enabler</key> <string>1920x1080x32</string> Thanks Tobias
  11. XFX Radeon HD 6870 on Lion

    Hey guys, So I finally bought a new graphics card. Hoping I would get native support under Lion (latest), I went with the XFX Radeon HD 6870. When booting without GraphicsEnabler, I often get flickering instead of the desktop. I have tried my monitors on both DVI ports, 1 DVI and 1 HDMI and everything. Also, I would like to at least use triple monitors as I have one (plus a MiniDP -> DVI adapter) lying around anyway, but I heard it's not possible, true? Thank you guys in advance for such an awesome community helping me for like 3 years now. Tobias MB: ASUS P5N-D Monitors: Acer S243HLBMii
  12. Get ALC883 working without VoodooHDA

    So, I tried several legacy ALC883 kexts but none of them seem to work. The farthest I got was most of my inputs showing up in "System Profiler", but not in "System Preferences". I always get 2 sound assertion errors in the console, pathMap_aDriverInstance and createAudioEngines. Still trying to at least get VoodooHDA working, the newest version doesn't even seem to work, all I get is a kernel panic when setting proper audio settings. Tobias
  13. Get ALC883 working without VoodooHDA

    Thanks verdant! This at least gets me to the point where the audio chip gets properly recognized as "Intel HD Audio" in System Profiler, but nothing more. I already tried the ALC8xx kext from [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] in conjunction with the AppleHDA rollback. What exactly do you mean by "legacy ALC883 kexts" or should I say, which one(s)? Thanks for all your help. Tobias
  14. Get ALC883 working without VoodooHDA

    Ok, so I modified my DSDT according to the linked instrustions, but my system would always KP on boot when I tried to use it. I now have a small app written in AppleScript to open the Audio-MIDI-Setup utility and set everything up the right, but I would still love to just have "native" audio working. I've attached the DSDTs below, if anyone could check it and find out what I did wrong. Thanks in advance Tobias P5N-D DSDT.zip
  15. Get ALC883 working without VoodooHDA

    Hey guys, I just can't take it anymore: Every time I reboot my system, VoodooHDA resets the settings for my optical SPDIF output to 192000 Hz and 32-Bit, which is, since optical SPDIF can only handle 20-Bit, a bit (lol) too much. I tried to use Automator to run something at login with GUI scripting, I knew it wouldn't be a good solution. It didn't work anyway. Now I want to actually patch the DSDT of my ASUS P5N-D motherboard to include the HDEF stuff I heard about, but what exactly do I have to do? I know I also need AppleHDA.kext from 10.6.2, but how do I actually patch my DSDT? Thank you guys in advance Tobias OK, just saw the DSDT forum, maybe that would be a better place, mod should decide
