Looking for Taruga and SkippyRetard

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

 

We've been trying to contact Taruga and SkippyRetard members of this forum, but it seems an impossible task. We plan to start some driver development, and we would like to have their blessing:D. No, seriously, we need to talk them.

 

I tried to send them a message from their profiles, but it didn't seem to work.

 

Does anyone know the email address of this two members?

 

Thanks a lot!!!!

Why you tried so hard to contact them?! I think they are tired to receive like me in average of 23 PM in one day because your labeled like "I.M Geek" or Deity. If you need something, keep on trying but I'm not sure. Results may vary ! LOL

Well, we(2 people) want to contact them because want to try to give full support for some ALC888 configurations that currently don't work in osx86 (at least, don't work with full support), and it seems that they're the "sound guys" of osx86. No matter if we need to rewrite a new driver, this is what we need to do, and it would be great to have some guidelines from those experienced guys.

 

We can start working without them, but talking with an experienced person in this topic, will save us hours of fight with things that the've have already faced, and this, is not good neither for us, nor the end user that will use the resulting driver...

 

That's the main reaseon we're looking forward to hear from them.

 

I'm just really impressed, that this guys are so hardly accesible.

 

Thank's a lot.

The patcher doesn't make a "driver". It patches AppleHDA.kext using your codec dump, its not really a separate driver, just a patched version of AppleHDA.kext. skippyretard's installer packages for ALC883 and ALC888 basically install ALCinject.kext (injector, now obsolete, replaced with HDAEnabler.kext by Kabyl) and a prepatched version of AppleHDA.kext. If anything was to change, it would be the codec dump. Of course you could try to write your own driver but it takes a lot of knowledge to do that, and it takes more than just a talk with Taruga.

Taruga is on http://wiki.taruga.net/

as it states in the post at AppleHDA subforum. And he is readily available if you have any useful.

 

I've been there, but i can't see any way to contact him. Could you please enlighten me?

I know. I have been reading about their work. I still would like to speak with them about how those "patches" are done.

Of course if the final way is to develop a new driver, it's going to require a lot of time and effort, and for sure, more than talking to taruga. Anyway, wouldn't this be a good starting point?

 

Guys it seems that you are aguing with me:D I just would love to have a short talk, or a mail chain with them, if they agree:D heheh I'm not a spammer:D

 

Thanks again.

Honestly, I don't know how or I for that matter could catch them. Keep searching and they'll come to you.

You'll need Kabyl aswell, some interesting parts of hdaenabler are written by Kabyl. Reaching Taruga isn't hard, Kabyl is.

Assuming Taruga's wiki comes back up, someone please make a dump of its contents. It would be a shame to lose all of that information forever (and I've seen it happen FAR too many times).

 

Personally, I'm just hoping to one day get my ALC269 to work. HDAPatcher rejects the codec dump as unsupported.
