Sheepshaver sound problem
- I have a problem with no sound output in my Sheepshaver
installation - all else seems to be working OK. Am using a
2.4 GHz Intel Core Duo with mac OS 10.5.1.
I have tried a host of 'fixes' including trying OS9.0.4 and
OS8.5 installations. I have at present settled with the
OS9.0.4 install where when I attempt to open the Sound
control panel I get a message that 'SndHWUtilitiesLib--
AudioNotify' can't be found. An extensive search of the
web found others with no sound, some with the same
message that I am getting. Of the suggested fixes
none have worked for me.
Would appreciate help. Frustrated, John. Thank you.

package here. Sound should work at that point. It requires
the Sound control panel (not Monitors and Sound). Sound
was not part of the default OS install.
If you then update OS, keep that Sound control panel, unless
the more recent OS requires this additional SndHWUtilitiesLib.
I don't know where to find that, if it's not contained on the
OS install disks.
- Matt Cannata at the uneasysilence.com board (SheepShaver article
postings) found a simple solution to this. I'm having the same problem
with the sound and intend to try this tonight:
Okay everybody! I've got sound. It was a stupid little tweak that gave
the sound. In the `Sound' area of the Control Panels, select Output and
then highlight Built-in. I had scanned through this all before, but I
just didn't click `Built-in' because I thought that since it was the
only option on that list it would be set as the default. But no, you
need to highlight it. Hopefully this will work with Graham's System 9
CD (iMac bundled). I ended up using a retail version of System 9.0.4
instead of using his bundled software.
- Heh. Well, I just realized after trying this fix that of course it won't work,
because our problem is that the Sound control panel won't even open,
and this fix involves making changes to the settings INSIDE the control
panel. Ah well, see if I can find another fix that doesn't involve a reinstall.
- Here are some other things we can try:
1. Older version of Sound control panel (OS 8.5)
2. Remove certain extensions
3. or Use a non-hardware specific ROM (Graham's is specifically for the iMac)
- Downloading the OS 9.0.4 update from Apple's website and installing
it overtop the current OS while in SheepShaver fixes part of the problem.
It gives you a working copy of the Sound Control Panel, but there is
no "built-in" device listed for the sound output, so there is still no
sound. But at least you can get into the control panel now.
