Cmedia 8738

228 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've installed the 10.5 version on my system with a ECS 945GCT-M/1333 mobo (IDT audio not working/disabled).

 

Anyways the system seems to work great, but... on a cold start-up the network does not work, and when I watch youtube in full screen some times when I go back into regular mode there is a kernel panic and the system asks me to push the reset button...

 

Anyways any help would be great in this issue. Oh by the way I used kext helper to install Maybe there is something more I need to do?

Alright I tried a different sound-card. This time I used a CMI8738/PCI-6CH chip instead of the CMI8738/PCI-SX chip. It seems to not have any problems from a cold boot now. Not ethernet connection issues.

I just recompiled this old driver from Dogbert for 10.5.3, no idea if it still works.

 

It's for 8738/8768 cards, maybe some other models work too.

 

Hey Krazubu! Thank you so much for this... I have audio now! =)

 

I was wondering if I could work/learn for a input mic in the kext now... could you post the source code? or the source is the same of 10.4.x?

 

Tks again! =)

I've also got JaS 10.5.4 and I've given up on my on board sound (ALC860 on an Intel 915 mobo) and fitted a Cmi8738 based PCI card, but I can't see exactly how to install this kext. The install.sh file seems to be something to do with it, but dragging this into terminal just throws up a lot of "no such file or directory" errors.

 

I'm a newbie, please help. I managed to load a kext for the onboard video, but that came with precise instructions...

 

and do all the inputs and outputs work, or just stereo out?

Hi,

 

I installed Krazubu's kext on 10.5.6. It seems to load (kextstat shows it, kextunload does not work) but I don't get sound and it's also not listed in the system information screen. I got a Terratec Aureon 5.1 PCI.

 

Could it be a problem with 10.5.6? How could I debug further? I do net get any error messages on bootup / in dmesg.

Thanks Krazubu for the kext. I have been trying to get my onboard adi 198x to work after getting my cmedia8738 pci card working (with so far what seems to be output only). Somehow I managed to mess up my drivers and instead of sound from my speakers I got nasty clicks of slight distortion that seemed troubling. Replacing my drivers with your posted kext put that trouble away ! ;)

Now finding a solution to my onboard sound is the next step for me.

Well... I got my Speedlink 7.1 card to work with this driver, so thanks very much !

 

Question is: I use the SPDIF output, do I have support for 5.1 sound in Mac OS X ?
