Fix Choppy/Skipping audio in Mac OS Maverick

Sometimes during a Facetime call or watching your favorite dumb crime show on some sketchy Russian streaming site, your audio sounds like it's farting through a tin can. Sometimes choppy and not very clear, whatever audio that's playing doesn't sound right.

One way to fix it is by killing Core Audio, which is responsible for processing audio.

 

sudo killall coreaudiod

Hackintosh build

I finally got around to building my own Hackintosh using no special hardware really. I guess the only requirements you really need is a CPU that supports SSE2/3 instructions. Just grab the latest Kalyway DVD and you're good to go. 

Mac OS X (Darwin) didn't detect my on-board NIC right away and I didn't feel like finding the kernel extensions for it; whatever so I found a spare 3Com NIC which worked. I'm stuck at 1024x768 until I get a new graphics card. I haven't tested audio yet so I'm not sure if that works. Edit: Works perfectly!

Edit: Screen shot here.

There's a shitload of other kernels you can try, but the original mach_kernel worked for me.
