hi all

im running OSx86 10.5.6 on a Dell Inspiron 1545, trying to get my marvell 80E8048 ethernet working, but the AppleYukon2.kext wont load (extension not loading, nothing in profiler) and gives me errors in verbose mode:

RomlessInit - getProperty failed

and

Failed to allocate MSI interrupt

my DeviceID is 435A and VendorID is 11AB. Have tried editing this into Info.plist and have tried many combinations of AppleYukon2.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext as suggested throughout this entire thread - http://www.insanelym...howtopic=155935

I suppose I could try upgrading to 10.5.7, but I'm loathed to do that since everything is stable right now except ethernet.

thanks in advance for any suggestions

Andy

Hi sealkid,

the "RomlessInit - getProperty failed" error is normal,as the drivers aren't written for our Ethernet ports,they're for the Gigabit Ethernet ports in the Nehalem XServes (we've got Fast Ethernet) and the driver can't read the information from the ROM ---> generic MAC address

But I don't exactly know what the other thing means (Failed to allocate MSI interrupt)...
This is the fatal error...
Try updating to Leopard 10.5.7,it might solve your problem

Thanks for your quick response! Which update method do you suggest I perform? I'm downloading the MacOSXUpd10.5.7.dmg from apple.com... correct? I'll post back with results

ok, so OS X upgraded to 10.5.7 without any more (noticeable) problems, but the ethernet remains undetected. I installed the original kext again from the first post in this topic and now the AppleYukon2.kext is listed in the Extensions section of profiler, but still no network card detected.

Same thing happens with the 88E8048.kext i found in the forum topic threads, and for combinations of IOPCIFamilt.kext with the above.

My vendorID/deviceID string of 0x435A11AB is in the IOPCIPrimaryMatch of the info.plist (by default - didn't bother HEXediting it manually this time since it seems to be in there). Error:

AppleYukon2: 00000000,00000000: sk98osx_dnet - AllocIOInterruptHandler - Failed to Allocate MSI Interrupt

All is as it should be in BIOS and the card is found and working in Windows XP. Since everyone else with 88E8040 gets this to work, im wondering if my 48 has issues, or I could have done something to break it. Bummer :(

Perhaps I could try the whole thing from the beginning with default 10.5.7 kexts, and try to make it work with files you suggest? After 2 days of this, the whole process has left me a bit unsure of myself (do I have original IOPCIFamily/IONetworkingFamily/AppleYukon2 kexts right now? i just dont know any more. lol)

</crazy>

EDIT - hmm fresh install of OSX detects the card as 40??? but 48 in windows??? wtf

Hi Adam,

Perhaps you are the only one who can help. I have a HP Mini 2149 HD Display(1366 x 768) running Boot132 10.5.7 Retail MacOS DVD Installation but the Gigabit Mavell Yukon just not working.

Have tried your latest IONetworking drivers and Apple2Yukon but still not working and spent many hours to make a prefect and compact MacBook Pro Mini, lights seems normal and working but no new Ethernet card from the Network. VendorID is 436c, perhaps this is the new one?

Please kindly help as seems working fine, WiFi, HDA, fan etc except the Ethernet and may be the sleep.

Thanks a million here!!

Hello All,

I have had my Marvell Yukon 88E80040 N/w card working for about a month time by installing the kext from the Adam's first post but for some unknown reason now it has stopped working all of sudden though I did not make any changes/update(s) to the stable Hackintosh. I am running 10.5.5.

I have tried removing the kext and re-installing all over again but with no luck..

Looking for any suggestion or idea(s). I want that o to be working again.

Also have any of you faced the similar phenomenon?

Thanks in advance for your suggestion(s)

Hi Joseph Zhan,

I decided to make an update even though 10.5.7 supports OOTB our 88E8040.
There's still a reason to exist for this kext.
I'll make it from scratch with all known (to me at least) working Device IDs and based upon the 9L16 kext.
:)

@who am i:

I noticed there are many people with these "symtoms" or their device isn't even recognized!
It should work as we've got the same laptop "XPS M1530" (great choice,indeed :) )
Give me a bit of time and I'll try to make a new revision of this driver...

Hi Adam,



Thanks for your kindest helps and I will keep checking for the new update.

I checked from the OSX Tools and the Device ID should be "436c". I started reinstall the HP Mini 2140 from the scratch yesterday again and this time not to copy the files/settings/applications from my MSI Wind. I think the only one issue to be resolved should be the Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet and may be the sleep issue also as I still haven't check.



Thanks,

Joseph

Hello Adam, Thanks for your time and effort that you will be putting this to get it working. Moreover I tried to rectify this problem and found that My MAC addresss has been changed automatically to 00:11:22:33:44:55 (Though I didn't make any changes to the stable 10.5.5) I'll try to change the MAC address using Hex Edit and will try to see if that works. I'll do that tonight and will keep you posted. Meanwhile If you come up with something, please do let me know... TIA cheers..!!!

Hello Everyone,
First of all, sorry for my bad english as it's not my native language.

I have a few questions about this:

First of all, will it work on this release:
http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/4702854/XxX_x86_10.5.6_Install_Disc_Universal_Final
??
Is it a good one?

And, will it work on 80E8040 Fast Ethernet port?

And, I'm really noob on this, so how do I install these ktext? And which should I download? My Vendor ID is 11AB and my Device ID is 4354.

Could anyone help me? I would be VERY happy!!

All the best,
givemeanick

EDIT: My specs:

Intel C2D 7300; Sapphire HD 2600 PRO 512MB DDR2; ABIT I45D(MotherBoard); Hitachi SATA II 16MB Cache 500GB 7200RPM; I have both mouse and keyboard on USB and my DVD drive is SATA.

As soon as I'll get my laptop back from Dell, I'll release new kexts,as there seem to be some problems...
