That's an error that I experienced as well -- it means your corresponding driver (VoodooHDA.kext) is not functional or active. All I can say is make sure you installed it correctly... and that it's the exact same one. In order for the prefpane to work, you MUST use the exact same kext that came with the prefpane file... other VoodooHDA's wont work :-)

For the people that speaking spanish like me:

 

Excelente este driver para el codec ALC883, instalado en la gigabyte G31M-ES2C, simplemente descarge el driver VoodooHDA_Pref.zip y segui los siguientes pasos:

 

1.- Copiar el kext a /Sistema/Libreria/Extensions

2.- Ejecutar /ATools/Kext Utility

3.- Doble click sobre el prefPane y seleccionar para todos los usuarios, pedirá password de root

4.- Reiniciar

 

Muchas Gracias !!! :rolleyes:

Thank you! in my board dg965wh works fine! i'm run snow leo 10.6.7.

:P

 

 

Something to clarify here:

 

I'm not the developer of VoodooHDA and VoodooPS2Controller. I just did the compilation job for snow leopard. Thus I actually have no idea what could be the reason for any non-working things caused to you.

 

Any further request and debug information should go to: forum.voodooprojects.org

 

Also Slice is actively developing VoodooHDA (now 0.2.42) and added mic autodetect function. Check it here. As rals2007 requested, here is the first version of 0.2.35 source code (need nodes patch to get mic work) edited for 32/64 bit compilation:voodoohda_patching.235.src.zip

 

These two kexts are recompiled for snow leopard, support both 32/64 bit kernel. The PS2 source code is from Chun-nan (now eureka?) and recompiled by me. The HDA is from VoodooProjects and recompiled by avian from their forum.

 

 

Update [2009-08-24]:

fassl from the VoodooProject released VoodooHDA_Pref source code two days ago. Thanks for that, I now compiled it for snow leopard 32/64. This version solved the low max volume problem on my laptop, thus I did not edit the file Table.c. Use VoodooHDA.prefPane for configuration. To reload the configuration at each boot, put voodoohdahelper into your startup item.

VoodooHDA_Pref.zip

 

 

Thank you! works fine on dg965wh and SL10.6.7, VoodooHDA_Pref.zip. =)

Finally got this working.. my touchpad and keyboard work once more.

 

My only issue is..

 

I have a dell latitude D630 and I love my little blue mouse I can use (similar to what the Lenovo/IBM laptops have that is red) and I can't think of what it is called.. and that does not work. How can I fix this?

Hi,

 

I am sorry I am responding to an old thread but have a question regarding the VoodooPS2 controller kext that is bundled into [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. I had ps2 keyboard support until I used a dsdt. Now my keyboard doesnt work but usb keyboard works fine. Anyone know if there is a dsdt edit for the voodoops2 keyboard?

 

 

Thanks
