Nope...i haven't taken the time to find the EFI strings for my card...but I do know that with my particular card you pretty much have to use the EFI string...

I had to update Bios to 0047. E8400 works great!I just noticed something weird about LAN, internet was very slow, in Activity Monitor looks like it's transmitting at all times, even with Ethernet Cable disconnected.Easy fix, just reinstalled manually RTL8111 Kext.Audio works with wiki's solution, but headphones and line out must be selected manually.

Ber82, that's not a hardware problem. also you don't have to update the BIOS though it is advisable.

 

sleep in the DG31PR works but most graphics cards do not wake with it. I am told that with the EFI strings it would work, but I haven't tried yet.

-xenonite-, sleep doesn't work, if selected turns off everything. lik ea hardware problem, Redliner is right it's a gfx card problem, i'll check on weekend.

 

Redliner, i had to update Bios because of the processor E8400, it's 45 nm. Thanks for the EFI string clue, i'll check this issue.

 

By the way, What's your processor speed?, Can you overclock ? I couldn't find anything. Not necessary but would be great!. 3.0 ghz it's great i got 210 on Xbench.

You are right I keep forgetting about the 45nm Processors...

 

I am at 2.39GHz with a Q6600...plenty fast for me. the bios has no way of overclocking that I am aware of. as far as I know your stuck with what speed you have, however...in bencharks the DG31PR using the exact same processor chip performed on par with an over clocked slightly fsb on another board to 2.6GHz...so I have no clue why but it's got to do with the fact that Intel makes the processor and the MB!!!

that's like saying its possible to fly but you have to modify your arms right!! Any idea where to start? both the back panel ins work with the dump. A possibility of three ins is pretty cool. Also I found an updated AppleHDA.kext that made system profiler work correctly. It sparked me to make another dump trying with different linux distros, but somewhere in the middle there i messed up and over-wrote the new with the old. Any idea where i can find a tutorial on modifying the kext correctly.

Edit

 

Anyone know what the kext is that adds an audio input when a firewire camera is plugged in? It doesn't show up in console when you plug it in.

 

anyways Someone sent me this tutorial. Thanks!!!

 

and I found the updated hdaenabler.kext here

http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...mp;#entry805196

 

and it kinda gives me some ideas, i guess I'd like to at least make the perfect AudioHDA.kext for Intel dg31pr. I patched it with taruga's patcher then intergrated into the applehda.kext. removed alcinject and used hdaenaber. So far I've got system profiler working sorta (its not correct I dont think), and i've started to rename the ports so that I can identify them easier.

 

I've got headphones renamed to front line out, speaker is named rear line out, rear mic is named rear pink microphone. all working perfect. All the renaming is just thru localizable.strings, for now. because audiohda.kext/contents/info.plist does not have the lists like in the tutorial.

 

I do have a digital out but no way to interface with it to see if it works. :( i also have digital in, but it says clear as day on the board on the spdif header it is spdif out. so I am going to try to remove it from the list. there is also a built in line output and I still haven't found out what it does. i think it is the front panel audio in, but need to figure out how to make it work correctly. from my research, I believe the "pinning" is the case here.

 

FYI

system profiler says

device id = 0x8086D608 (hex to dec) = 2156320264

and the audio id = 12

 

and the linux dump says

Vendor Id: 0x10ec0888 = 283904136

Subsystem Id: 0x8086d608

Revision Id: 0x100001

 

So, i've compaired my new audiohda.kext to the vanilla 10.5.4 audohda.kext and the only thing i can find is the extra hdaenabler.kext in plugins and a whole bunch of layouts.xml and pathmaps.xml in the resources folder. Also the AppleHDAPlatformDriver.kext is 20k fatter. it has something similar to the info.plist from taruga's guide above. I assume this is what I'm looking for to edit.

 

and that is where I am at. i need a bit of a shove from here. any ideas? is it against the rules to attach the audiohda.kext?

 

EDIT #2

 

I think i see the problem!!!!! There is no pathmap.xml that says "for alc888" just alc885. the layout is layout2.xml (pretty sure). I'm taking bets.... but ... too tired. I have been VNCing to my hack and I just hit shut down instead of reboot. woops trying tomorrow.

That's exaclty what i was talking about... the adress paths need to be figured out and manualy assigned per motherboard. this is the same path that will get us working mic and line-in :)

 

I appreciate your enthusiasm as well. You are on the right path with the Audio... now if only someone got on the ball with fixing the failure to wake from sleep (has to do with the DG31PR's method of waking graphics on resume)

 

try to get on IRC and ask around... people will be glad to help or point you in the correct direction... it will take patience at first... somedays no one will want to help... others you will have too many people offering their 2 cents.

 

keep up the good work and let me know if you need any codec dumps or example .kexts from my build.

i dont have a spare sata port (for windows) or a floppy drive to try the new bios but there is a new bios as off july 15th i think. read me said something about fixing what happens when someone holds the power button. I never used sleep before tho, my G5 would never wake up.

According to Intel's spec page for this board, it has surround audio out. I'm thinking of getting a home theatre audio receiver, and I was wondering if anyone has gotten 5.1 to work with this board on OS X? I currently have Leopard installed, but I have no idea if 5.1 works or not.
