SSL Duende PCIe card on Snow Leopard

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hallo,

 

I am pretty new to this but I have managed everything so far but now I have some problems with my SSL Duende PCIe card.

I have not found a solution for my problem yet.

 

I have a Gigabyte EP45T-UD3LR MoBo, a Geforce 9800GT and everything works fine so far and the SSL Duende PCIe card is also detected within Windows 7.

On SL I can not see the card within the tool that comes with the SSL Duende driver.

 

Does anyone have an idea how I can get this card to work?

 

I also have an RME Hammerfall DSP PCI card which is not detected by SL but this is another problem.

 

The most important problem for me at the moment is the SSL Duende.

 

Maybe somebody can give me some hints.

:P

 

That would be so great!!!!

 

best regards,

 

mocOS :D

Are you using a retail version of OSX or a distro? Can you see the card in IORegistryExplorer and Hardware Info?

Hi,

 

thanks for the very fast reply!!!!

 

I can not see the card within the system profiler and I also cannot find it within the ioRegistryExplorer. ;)

I can see the RME card though (in ioRegistryExplorer) and it is also visible within the audio settings.

 

But I cannot get any live sign of the ssl duende pcie card.

 

I would really be very happy if this could be solved somehow.

 

Oh I nearly forgot I use a retail version of Snow Leopard and I have a Darwin Bootloader.

Maybe my ioreg file helps you to see wether there is a PCIe device which could be the duende card.

duende.ioreg.zip

 

 

best regards,

First of all use a newer bootloader, try AsereBLN 1.1.9 it's very stable and has everything you need for SL.

Second, seems like you may have the wrong driver for your RME card. Is it Hammerfall DSP 9632 PCI card?

This kind of problems (unseen devices) is caused mainly by interrupt conflicts. You need to edit your DSDT and delete some interrupt assigns like is explained here:

Might be something else as well, but you dont loose anything by trying

 

post your DSDT.aml and I'll have a look

I have two DSDT.aml files on my system and I do not know which one is used.

 

There is one in the root and one in the /Extra folder.

 

EXTRA_DSDT.aml.zip

 

ROOT_dsdt.aml.zip

 

Would be great if you could have a look in these files for me.

 

Is there a real need of using another bootloader? Could this also solve my problems with the not detected ssl duende pcie card?

 

If yes maybe you can give some hints what I have to take care about when I want to update to this bootloader.

 

Regarding the Hammerfall DSP Card I will check the exact name later today when I am back home.

 

At the moment I only have a remote connection to the system. :mellow:

 

 

Looking forward to your replies!

 

 

 

best regards,

I guess I made those files some time ago or they have been installed automatically with the bootloader.

 

Maybe I also copied one to the other folder because I was not sure where to put the file.

 

I can remember that I had some problem that my bios was always resetted to the default values after a reboot and I think I fixed this somehow within this file. I am not sure though!

 

 

The PCI RME card is the following PCI card:

 

http://217.160.62.224/en_products_hdsp_pci_interface.php

 

So, do you suggest that I install another bootloader to my system?

 

What is the best way to proceed to do this update?

Ok!

After all other efforts did not work I have now upgraded to a special bios that should support all features of the EP45T-UD3LR.

http://cartri.net/blog/mac-bios-status-table

 

Everything worked fine so far and now my Geforce 9800 GT is also shown in the hardware information as PCI device.

 

All my audio cards (RME Hammerfall DSP, UAD-1 PCI-card and SSLD Duende) work great now in 32bit mode!!!!

I had to switch my System to 32 bit mode and now the cards are detected!!!!

Great that the solution is that simple!

 

The only problem I have left is that I cannot set the system to boot permanently with the 32bit kernel.

It only works when I write -x32 as a start parameter at the bootloader but I would like to have this by default of course.

It has no effect when I edit the file /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist to i386 kernel. This setting seems to have no effect on my system.

 

I hope anyone of you can tell me what I am doing wrong.

 

So, this is at the moment my last problem together with the geforce 9800GT fan running at very high speed.

 

 

THANKS AGAIN GUYS FOR YOUR SUPPORT !!!!!

 

 

best regard,
