shouldn't be a problem. other extra kexts are properly loaded

Eliminating your newly installed kexts one by one until you find the offender would be a good place to start. Loading them "correctly" would be my next choice. Neither this lan kext or the new audio kext for the dp35dp gives me a panic. If you don't believe me then try for yourself.

what would be the point of having a separate bootloader if i still have to [touch] the retail leopard install? ;)

I realise this is turning into your personal holy grail and if a panic on shutdown is the price you are prepared to pay then more power to you. The point is booting from an EFI partition and then re-installing a kext after an update just seems a bit easier than your bootloader approach. :)

pardon me but perhaps i just won't settle to anything other than an [untouched] retail leopard.

btw, as i've said, another new kexts i'm trying are the ones from AlainTox714. & as i've found out just now, it's not this intel82566MM.kext that's causing a kernel panic at shutdown. it's the audio kexts from Alain.

will u tell me w/c audio kexts you're using?

p.s.

my apologies dingguijin for being misled & thought that it's your kext that's causing the problem. now i can appreciate much more your kext!!! :D

[EDIT]

i'm confused now. just a couple of shutdown(s) a while ago were ok w/out Alain's kexts. but now w/ my latest test-shutdown, got kernel panic again. i'm feeling lost. ;) perhaps it's really my approach. but my dilemma is, before these new kexts (intel82566MM & HDAEnabler+AppleHDA), never had issue on shutdown. hope dingguijin can give me a hand?

Doing some work with this driver and my HP DC7700 desktop with Intel 82566DM, I added the device ID = 0x104A8086.
I am only able to get 10mb from the network, If I manualy change the TX rate to 1000mb its still only at 10mb.

After installing driver ALC268 Audio stoped working..?
any solution for that..?

when i first installed patched driver for ALC268 Audio the Ethernet connection stoped working and visa versa..?

I think there is some conflict between these two drivers.

Denja, did the sounds work before you installed the driver, I am having the same issues but am think its something with the 8500GT 256, I have no issues with this driver and sound using 8500gt 512 or 8600 512.

After i install package usb_fix_1.3.mpkg, leopard does not detect the network card :whistle: although i have modify OSBundleLibraries correctly.

How can i fix this problem? or how can i remove usb_fix_1.3.mpkg?

Thank you.

update: i fixed it. Nic is working.
Just replace the package system.kext with original.

:)

can any one confirm they are getting 1000 with this driver, don't look at the software: to confirm it look at your router, I can manualy set the speed to 1000 but the router says 10.

It's working for me, but the driver won't survive a sleep.

Is there anything that can be done so the card will resume correctly after the sleep?


Same question here?!

i'd like to thank again dingguijin for coming up w/ this kext. gigabit lan (intel 82566dc-2) onboard my intel dp35dp board works great.

one thing though, it's now connected but only w/ the speed of 10Mbps. shouldn't it be 1000Mbps? will anyone give any advice?

tnx.

Flatfoot listem me.....download the last version of the kext in this link http://techresearchinfo.blogspot.com/ ..this is the dingguijin forum...download the package in the first post...the first link!!!!unzip
you will find many files but you only take the Intel82566MM.kext

1 - open the terminal and digit kextstat - enter...
to catch your system information: the version of com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily - com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily - com.apple.kpi.bsd - com.apple.kpi.iokit - com.apple.kpi.libkern - com.apple.kpi.mach.

2 - now open and scroll the Intel82566MM.kext /content/info.plist you'll see this:

<key>OSBundleLibraries</key>
<dict>
<key>com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily</key>
<string>1.6.0</string>
<key>com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily</key>
<string>2.4.1</string>
<key>com.apple.kpi.bsd</key>
<string>9.3.0</string>
<key>com.apple.kpi.iokit</key>
<string>9.3.0</string>
<key>com.apple.kpi.libkern</key>
<string>9.3.0</string>
<key>com.apple.kpi.mach</key>
<string>9.3.0</string>
</dict>
.................change your system information in the same voice..and save.

istall the Intel82566MM.kext in ....../system/library/extensions ....and you're done!
i have install with the Kext Helper b7.

and thanked dingguijin for all!!!!!!!

PS:sorry 4 my english...let there be clear!
bye


This worked and allowed my OS X (iAtkos v4i) to pick up my ethernet.

But now it keeps self-allocating itself a "169.something.something.something" address and wont let me get to the internet...

Anyone know how to get around this? I really thought i might be able to post a wonderful success story off of my mac today!

Thanks in Advance

You should try to enter static ip address. DHCP doesn't work well on this driver. I've got self-ip address (169.254.25.71) like you even I unplug the ethernet cable.
