(how to) Leo4All kexts onto kalyway 10.5.2?

Hi guys,


Well, did an exaustive search thru this forum and nothing useful came up. (also, I don't know if the site is slow because of my location (Brazil), but it's really an annoyinly slow search :hysterical: ).


So, I need your wisdom (please!):


I installed sucessfuly the OSx on my PC (specs below) with the leo4allv2 install dvd (only video and lan missing - forcekext and natit later installed and all worked fine).


But this release has its problems, like ical not working, some apps. unnexpectedly shutting down and a random slow system.


So, I tried kalyway 10.5.2 AMD/Intel release, the same one that is working flawlessly on my other computer.


It works and boots up (even video and network out of box! - checking natit and forcekext support on installation), but without sound. So I tried to install the kexts I downloaded from internet (like Azalia, AC97 and some ALC8xx kexts)...NO LUCK :hysterical:


Then I used pacifist, searched down the leo4allv2 installation disk and installed w/ the help of kexthelperb7 all audio related kexts.... ALSO NO LUCK! :(


So, what can I do?


Is it possible to merge the audio support from leo4allv2 on a kalyway installation dvd? Will that help met?


Anyone here with a similar rig with working audio on a kalyway 10.5.2 installation? Procedures please? :hysterical:


Thanks in advance.

So, did you got it working?


I probably know less than you do, but from where I stand this seems like a simple problem of getting the kext from the other installation and using it on kalyway, since it's the stable one. The .kext directory should be on /System/Library/Extensions/, but you'll have to figure out which one (just like you did for the rest).


I'm actually just curious to know if you handled it. :laser:
