First i installed my card using this tutorial

Hey People...

Still a beginner on this kind of thing, but making some advances.

I'm posting here a partial solution that can make Via AD 1888 users get Stereo fully working on the 4 principal speakers. And Mic also working, in case front-connector or back connector.

I dont know if anyone done this before, i tryed several things and thsi solution was the better for me until now.

Thanks to Pattjin since i used his kext as source.

Please if you install this kext, GIVE ME FEEDBACK, any aditional info will be great (even "it works on this chipset or this board"), as i intend to keep working on it.

My intention is to get 5.1 sound on this board... i don't know if it is possible.


For begginers, this is what you need to do:


- Put the kext on your desktop

- Open terminal and type

sudo su

- Give your password and press enter, then type

cp -R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext /Users/put-your-user-name-here-please/Desktop/BAK

cp -R /Users/put-your-user-name-here-please/Desktop/AppleAC97Audio.kext /System/Library/Extensions

chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAC97Audio.kext

chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions

rm /System/Library/Extensions.*

kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions

- Restart your system normally and...

4.0 Sound!



In most cards the connectors will be changed! Try to plug your sound boxes on different connectors (ignoring the motherboard specs of wich plug does what...)
