i got the m’f’ing sound to work on my hackint0sh!! aww yeeeahh! i was ready to throw in the towel when i was trolling the insanely mac forums and found a modified cmedia driver and i tried it and awww yeeeah, success!!! i can make the little blurp noise when i turn up the volume!
now i just need to see if i can get the software i want to run to work under the hacked os.
