OMG OMG it works!!!!! I did one minor modification.


I have the Realtek ALC 888S on a Newer Intel Motherboard Chipset the G33 Chipset using ICH9 controller. Its an hp M9040N Quad Core Q6600 2.4GHZ. Asus MB IPLBL-LA.


I also have an HP a6040n that uses just the ALC 888 chipset so I can assume the ALC 888 driver install will work on that PC.


Anyhow I booted into a linux Live CD , Knoppix 5.1.1. Or even something smaller like DSL (Damn Small linux. LIke 50MG for CD or USB flash drive.


Ran the command "lspci -v" no quotes. If you do -vv it a very comprehensive printout on your screen so you shoudl use less. "lspci -vv lspci" than nano lspci and search audio.


My ID is different 8086:293e.


SO I just changed it to 0x293e8086 and VIOLA i have audio.




Question on this part since my audio chipset is different do I need to change this to? It is working so I assume no I leave that alone even though mine is the 888S chipset.



change the string to:

<string>0x10ec0883</string> <<<< DO I need to change this string to reference the other string?



SO leave that as is?


Anyhow its working and I am so happy.




Under the APPLE about this Mac and More Information, the audio does not show up there. BUt if I play a wave file I can hear it in stereo.


In Audio and MIDI setup it does say Input Unavailable.
