    Default [Solved] Dell Mini 9 - No Sound

    Hi there.

    I've been trying to install iDeneb on my Dell Mini 9, and have got to the point where everything works except sound.

    I did the following:

    [1] Downloaded iDeneb 10.5.5 from TPB
    [2] Partitioned using disk utility to 1 partition, GUID, HFS extended (no journalling). Installed using default options (ie nothing selected)
    [3] Rebooted to white error screen
    [4] Got this
    http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?jiininm5kgw - it's Type 11s EFI bootloader that contains all the Dell-specific drivers. I burned to a CD, booted with that and selected [80] as the boot device.
    [5] Hurray, it started up and took me through the create accounts, etc process.
    [6] Opened the CD, ran miniscript as a new install (said "no" to two-finger scrolling)
    [7] On reboot, everything seems to work except sound. I can turn the volume up and down in System Preferences, but there's no actual sound from the speakers.

    I've tried rebooting with -f flag, that seems to affect the display driver (but still no sound). I also tried booting with the platform=x86pc flag, that does the same thing as -f.

    Does anyone have a dell mini and iDeneb 10.5.5 working with sound? Can you tell me how you did it, it feels like I'm really close, but I just can't seem to get there.

    Cheers,
    Silas.

    Default Dell Mini 9 - ALC268

    The Dell Mini 9 uses an ALC268, I'm told.

    But Type 11's installer supposedly installs the right sound drivers. I got hold of a retail disk this afternoon and have the exact same issue. (everything works except sound).

    I'm starting to think maybe there's a setting in my BIOS I need to change, or maybe I need to update the bios.

    Is there some sort of log file I can post which would help solve the problem? (or how can I copy / paste the results of a -v startup)? Or does someone have a dell mini 9 that they can reproduce this issue on>

    Just in case it's the bios, here are the current settings:
    Version: A00.
    Speedstep: Enabled
    No-execute memory protection: Disabled
    (all others in advanced): Enabled

    If anyone has a Dell Mini with working sound, can you tell me what the bios version is?

    Cheers,
    Silas.

    Default Dell Mini 9 - ALC268

    I did a bios update (to A02) and restarted a couple of times, and now sound works.

    Yay! Garage Band rocks.

    Thanks for your help anyway.

    Cheers,
    Silas.
