I followed the instructions on the first page and also have the same problem of "superclass".

I'm currently running 10.4.1 - i dunno if this is the problem ?

I have a DFI lanparty nForce4 Ultra-D motherboard which has two integrated nics:

1) Dual Gigabit LAN - Vitesse VSC8201 Gigabit Phy
2) Marvell 88E8001 Gigabit PCI onboard lan

here is the contents of the debug window:

Yeah, it's the fact that you have 10.4.1. I think you'd need to recompile it. Unfortunately, this is more complicated than it ought to be. You'll need Xcode, which is a 833 MB DMG file. Open up the project, and just hit build, and that version should work. I think. It's possible there might be compile errors due to the different versions, but those should be trivial to fix.

Though it might be simpler just to upgrade. :)

First of all thanks for this one...!

Worked from the first second I loaded the driver.
But as another user reported already, I get an kernel panic, too, when I am transferring a big amount of data (Networking, Azureus...).

So here is the debug:

panic(cpu 0 caller 0x00134182): thread_invoke: preemtion_level 1

Debugger called: <panic>

would be nice if someone could help.
I did not quote everything, because it is too much typing 0x.... so I hope this is ok. otherwise I can reproduce the panic again and write down all the stuff.

max respect,

EDIT:
Ah I forget to mention my mobo: A8N SLI Deluxe
I have an NVidia 6600GT, perhaps this may bring trouble?

What might be the trouble is that you have either a dual-core CPU or otherwise multiple logical processors, and you haven't used the cpus=1 boot option. Is this the case?

What version of the driver do you have? When did you get it?

EDIT: And can I have the rest of the backtrace please? I'm not sure where in MY code this actually happens from the data given. /Library/Logs/panic.log should have it.

I tried both zips, with all kexts I found inside. I downloaded the last release at friday.
running osx 10.4.4

EDIT: there is no panic.log inside, i will add the missing lines at the next crash ;-)

No problem. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I knew there was something a bit screwy going on with the locking, but I wasn't able to find out what it is: Unlike your computer, mine merely freezes when something goes wrong (except with the latest version - theoretically, all the locking is handled by OS X so theoretically, this sort of thing shouldn't happen). It looks like there's a problem with the functions residing at 0x23d7061a and/or 0x23d70704 as they are calling a function on the IONetworkingController superclass at 0x291b739a. I don't have any experience debugging OS X kernel extensions, so I don't know what exactly these functions are yet. I'll try to wrestle with gdb and find that out later today (when I'm back at my own computer). My guess is the replaceOrCopyPacket part in the rxProcess function though. That matches the profile pretty well and it would be called a ton during massive transfers. Still not quite sure why that particular kernel panic results, though.

It detects my card.. link and speed whatnot. Even when I switch from 1Gbit or 100mbs. It detects it. BUT it won't get the correct ip from DHCP. Also, when I force the correct IP, it does not work. But it's a step. Only a little bit more to go!

The driver attached should now be fairly stable, but as with all OS X drivers, there is no guarantee of support. Complete system freezes have been known to occur with older versions and may reoccur, so avoid doing critical work on OS X.


Thank you for the updated driver (couldn't find a version number, dated march 29) haven't experienced a lock up yet ;-)

mind fixing that???

Sorry guys, but finals are coming around the corner and I don't have much more time to waste on this. I can't seem to reproduce any of your freezing bugs with the newest version. The kernel panic by rights, should not happen. A secondary interrupt should not prevent me from doing memory allocation, so I can't reproduce that either.

It's extraordinarily difficult for me to fix what I can't duplicate, so if you guys want it fixed on any sort of time frame, you'll have to do it yourselves. As for people who're having trouble connecting, even though it says a connection is made, a pasted log is always much more helpful than telling me "it doesn't work". I think the reason is that you guys probably forced the driver to try to handle a nForce LAN device it doesn't support.

My Motherboard is a DFI nF4 SLi-D
The nF4 LAN works if you use the forcedeth-nockd.kext.
