Soundflower on Intel error


    Feb 23 2006 | 5:31 am
    I just recieved my new MacBook Pro and I went to install all my favorite programs and I noticed that Soundflower doesn't work.
    After some troubleshooting I recieve this error when I try to load the Extension.
    $ sudo kextload -t Soundflower.kext
    kernel extension Soundflower.kext has problems: Validation failures { "Kext claims an executable file but it doesn't exist" = true }
    I downloaded the source and opened it in Xcode I was able to build the project agains despite some errors concerning Absolute time. But the freshly built kext returns the same error when loaded.
    I rely only Soundflower to record my podcast and would greatly apprecate any help.
    Thanks Ben

      Make sure you are building this Universal. I heard there's a checkbox in Xcode... When you run the file command on the kext, does it say the binary has 2 arch's? I'm also not convinced that there aren't any endian issues.

      Thanks for the quick response but it appears that I do have Xcode configured for Intel binaries.

      I haven't got the ability to help, but I have an iMacIntel and miss soundflower very much too.
      I really hope someone (bjdraw?) will find a solution and can build a Universal version... and make it accessible for incapable guys, like me.
      Good luck!!

      Here is a website that will tell you how to build Soundflower for Intel. You have to have Xcode installed and you need the source code. (both are free)
