Hi,
At the moment I'm using VoodooHDA 0.2.52 and everything seems good in my notebook but reading this post I want to give a try to your kext. Maybe adds more functions or as you said a better frecuency response.
After I've decompress, I've seen inside the build folder many files.

libFloatSupport.a
voodoohdahelper
VoodooHDAConfigLoader
VoodooHDA.kext

I know where it goes the kext but the others i don't.

Could you tell me where them goes?


Thanks in advance.


Greets.

I made some updates to this driver. It's all documented in another forum (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=220707&st=0#entry1503819), but to summarize:

* Added an option to skip a device - useful if you're getting kernel panics and have more than one codec in your system (e.g. onboard sound and an HDMI output with sound)
* Added flag in Info.plist to enable/disable volume change fix (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=183321&st=20)

Full source code and binaries (for Leopard and Snow Leopard) are included.

Would you please be so kind to explain how I can try and evaluate your project with Leopard 10.5.6??? I am fairly new to making a hackintosh (iPC 10.5.6 works, but want to try VoodooHDA. Also, want a fall back application in the event that I attempt to update to 10.5.7 and/or 10.5.8.

I figured a rather strange way to remove temporarily the crackles from the sound when playing iTunes and other stuff and using an AMD processor on my ECS mobo, it is a a780gm-a, with a IDT sound chip, it says it is a SigmaTel 92HD206X, vendor id 0x83847645 subsys 0x10192816 revision 0x100402, it reads 00:14.2 Audio device [0403]: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) [1002:4383] trough lspci -nn, it just might work for other as well, here is how it works:

1.- open Terminal.app
2.- type "yes > /dev/null" w/o quotes and hit enter
3.- open iTunes/Youtube/other media/games and test

funny huh? idle cpu gets crackles and busy cpu doesn't ... really weird.

I've just installed this on Leopard, sound doesn't work and when trying to access to the pref pane i get an error: "can't access registry path" (or something like that)

I know this may be a little late, but I might as well post this anyway. A more permanent solution to this is to boot the computer with idlehalt=0 in your com.apple.boot.plist .

If I understand what the problem is correctly, the Kernel drops the CPU into a low power mode when it's not being used, and AMD CPUs aren't well supported under OS X for obvious reasons, so it ends up not properly coming out of that lower power mode. idlehalt=0 turns off that functionality. Less energy friendly, but at least you can use your computer without stuttering.

Hi,

The attached xcode project is compiled OK in Snow Leopard, but when I check it with kextlibs, it says three unresolved symbols. I found _lck_mtx_assert in source code, so I can comment out. But I have no idea the other two. Would any body help if you compiled it successfully?

     $ kextlibs --xml -undef-symbols VoodooHDA.kext
   <key>OSBundleLibraries</key>
   <dict>
      <key>com.apple.iokit.IOAudioFamily</key>
      <string>1.7.6f2</string>
      <key>com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily</key>
      <string>2.6</string>
      <key>com.apple.kpi.iokit</key>
      <string>10.4</string>
      <key>com.apple.kpi.libkern</key>
      <string>10.4</string>
      <key>com.apple.kpi.mach</key>
      <string>10.4</string>
   </dict>

For i386:
    3 symbols not found in any library kext:
   __ZN13IOAudioEngine24_RESERVEDIOAudioEngine14Ev
   _lck_mtx_assert
   __ZN13IOAudioEngine24_RESERVEDIOAudioEngine13Ev

For x86_64:
    3 symbols not found in any library kext:
   __ZN13IOAudioEngine24_RESERVEDIOAudioEngine14Ev
   _lck_mtx_assert
   __ZN13IOAudioEngine24_RESERVEDIOAudioEngine13Ev
