I have the delight of having taken over a friends wee hackie ;)
Of course I immediately stuck in a sound card (mia midi) grabbed the needed kexts (i think)
In the rush I of course did not read every forum ;)
And then a logic interface issue occurred ( I #$%%$ upped !) and seem to have gotten side tracked into tracing the sound issue
I ran the script to uninstall the appleHDA And dang went and loaded the VoodooHDA.kext via the kext wizard!
And yes as you guessed the dred grey screen "you need to restart your computer etc. popped up"
Panic panic panic to the bottom of my kernel!
Hours of googleing later I discovered this
Yay he thought……….
"to remove the voodooHDA.kext.
Bootup with -s (single user mode)
*****File SYSTEM WAS MODIFIED ********
So far so good
/sbin/mount -uw /
I get a message……………….. –sh:System/library/extensions is a directory
All good I know the .kext reads as a directory
Then I enter
rm -R VoodooHDA.kext
And it goes into panic attack !
Now if I do the same I am told
No such file or directory ( a good thing I think) and if i search in the same manner for the applehda also not finding it.
i appolgize for the laborious post but as they say the devil is in the detail.
So what do i do next ?
how do i restore that applehda file ? i did pop a copy on my desk top but how do i find it using single user ?
