I am going by other way.
I took latest AppleYukon2.kext (from 10.5.6), reversed it, compare with oficial Marvell's Linux driver and found that they are similar but Apple driver is for chip b3-b7 while we need b8. Wait for Apple make new version?
I decided to edit binary code by a way to make it is working for b8.
Till now I found only 28 places chip dependent. Not so hard!

After few more patches I have working net during few seconds. Then link drops down.
I need only to understand why.

Try also, please, Marvell.kext from topic and show my system.log with marvell messages.

I think there is some more but i don't really know what kind of information you are looking for.

I'll search for more when you need it.

Snow Leopard seems to have support so I wouldn't worry.

On my Dell Inspiron 1525 I have a Marvell 88E8040 . It is quite different from other Yukon-2 devices:


Compaq mini 700 has same Marvell wire interface inside.

Hy.. confirm that Marvell Yukon 88E 8071
mounted in ACER 5930g

is NOT working

it seems to be loaded thanks to the injection in plist
but no socket is established.. no way to see a traffic ip.. no address from dhcp..

nothing!

Hi Slice,

Still present for testing! I was looking to make my ethernet (88E8040) works and I stumbled on your thread. This time I have a similar PC to yours (Inspiron 1525).

As soon as you have new info/kext I'll try it.

Пока!

Hi Slice.

I can confirm that the 9J22 10.5.7 kext is working with the 88E8040.

You can download the kext in my topic.

Thank you!
But the driver doesn't work for me.
Development will continue in the new way.
I think my Fast88E8040 is differ from Gigabit88E804Z. But the difference is smaller.

:whistle: Or may be I still need to wait for 10.5.7....

Hi Slice, I have the same Inspirion 1525, using the 10.5.7 Beta driver, i have full connectivity on the Ethernet port, the only missing link is that the ethernet cannot retrieve the mac address correctly, but right now Im using it to write this post.

My device id is : 435a (compatible with the Gigabit 88E804Y (on linux is displayed as 88E8048)

P. S. I reinstall a virgin IONETWORKING.KEXT and REMOVE MARVELL.KEXT and put the new beta plugin (10.5.7) inside of the ION.......and the thing works.


Dell Inspiron 1525
