no sound on Kalyway Leopard 10.5.2

Hello. I finally got past installing Leopard on my AMD computer.


I used the Kalyway Leopard 10.5.2 install DVD.


I now have almost everything working besides the sound.


I have two different sound cards:


1. On board Asus M2n-SLI Deluxe, which runs HD SoundMax ADI AD1988B 8 channel Codec

2. Creative SB X-Fi Xtreme Audio 70SB104000000 7.1 Channels PCI Express


When I open "sounds" in system preferences, it shows no output devices found ( http://bayimg.com/OajPeAaBG )


Any way to install drivers to get either sound cards to work? I prefer to have the soundblaster (#2) to work. But I mainly just want sound :(


Thank you for your help.

You cannot use the SB X-Fi, no drivers for it (trust me, i want it as much as you do.)


For the HD Soundmax:

AppleHDA, go down to:

How to use AppleHDA Patcher:

Drag and drop a linux codec dump into AppleHDA Patcher icon

Some of them, can be found here: http://psykopat.free.fr/apple/AppleHDA/


Go to that psykopat.free.fr site, click the ADI folder, save the AD1988B.txt file. Then dump it into the AppleHDA Patcher.
