Edit (Solved): I downloaded 10.6.2 update from my working Leopard installation, updated snow kitty, and ethernet worked after the first reboot.

Thanks a lot!
I built my SL HackMac based on the GA EX-58 UD5 and that board is using a Realtek 8111.
There is currently no way to get that to work properly in 64bit mode so I jumped for joy as I just stumbled over this post. I immediately purchased the DLink 530T and will try to get everything to work as soon as it arrives (hopefully in two days from now).
I will update this post then.
Again, thanks for your effort and time spent!

Thanks again for providing the 64bit kext. I got myself a DLink 530T and I can confirm that it works with skge 0.2f in 64 bit. I have a GA EX-58 UD5 with RTL 8111 onboard and this thread - or the availability of a 64bit driver for the Marvel chip - made me get this extra PCI add-card to finally get my 64bit kernel running.
Unfortunately I had to switch back to the RTL and 32 bit kernel again because unfortunately the performance of the skge kext is absolutely unaccetable. Instead of nearly 900mbps (on the GigE link) I get with my RTL I only get about *FIVE* mbps with the skge.
Is anyone else experiencing this problem? Or even better: would anyone have a solution for this?

I have the same motherboard, and mine would kernel panic when I updated to 10.5.6 and had the skge.kext loaded. It would give me a panic report of a conflict with IONetworkingfamily.kext, etc..
After about a weeks worth of troubleshooting, I solved the problem by removing the dsdt.aml I had generated and installed pre-update, and replacing AppleHPET.kext with the 10.5.5 version. (This was solved by accident, as I was replacing the HPET to fix my firewire.)
Hope this saves someone some headaches!
I have Mac OS 10.5.7 and 0.2e gives me kernel panic, while 0.2f lets me boot but no ethernet is seen by the OS. I'd like to try your AppleHPET.kext (10.5.5 version), maybe this could help
Could you please attach it here?

Thanks a lot for your driver!
I was able to install a D-Link DGE-530T in Snow Leopard 10.6.4, without problems.

I downloaded the kext by temporarily installing a generic Realtek RTL8169SC -based card. If you've got one handy it saves some time.
Posted 08 May 2011 - 02:12 AM
+skge 0.2f - installed in S/L/E
I get "cannot resolve dependencies for kernel extension /System/Library/Extensions/skge.kext" in the system logs. This results in card not being detected.
I noticed a few posts with similar results. Anyone knows what this "dependency" is?
My fix was to use skge 0.2(e) with Seatbelt.kext downgraded to version 10.5.5.

skge.kext_02g_release.zip = Release build 10.6 & 10.7, arch = i386 & x86_64.
skge.kext_02g_debug.zip = Debug build 10.6 & 10.7, arch = i386 & x86_64.
The instructions are the same as the first post for installation.
I expect it to work for 10.6 and 10.7 both i386 and x86_64.
10.5 will NOT work.
Alterations to allow loading with 10.7 (assuming 10.6 also). I added the ID for the Belkin 5005 card I have.
I altered the source to remove the gotos and compiled it with Xcode 4.1 against the 10.6 SDK.
Changes to the Info.plist to allow loading on 10.7 otherwise I got:
11/08/11 2:27:31.000 AM kernel: kxld[com.musashi.skge]: ___stack_chk_fail
11/08/11 2:27:31.000 AM kernel: kxld[com.musashi.skge]: ___stack_chk_guard
The main alterations are com.apple.kpi.*

I used kalyway 10.5.2 installation cd to install it on my extended partition. my nic is a marvel yukon 8001 on a i848 gigabyte motherboard.
my mac os x doesn't recognize the NIC. If I go to System Preference -> Network it sees only two serial built in ports and none ethernet port.
I tried to install the skge.kext_02g package but it still doesn't work. when I reboot it says something that it can't load that extension.
I will come back with the exact message from the dmesg.
any ieas what can i do?
if I will install a second PCI NIC do you think that this will solve the problem and the os x will see the NIC?

skgeosx is not compatible with its superclass 20IOEthernethController superclass changed?
Failed to load extension com.musashi.skge
couldn't alloc.class "skgeosx"
I've tryed to install a tp-link nic on a pci slot still doesn't detect any ethernet port....

I installed the Marvell.Gigabit.pkg
sudo /usr/bin/installer -pgk 'your pakage path'/Marvell.Gigabit.pkg -target /
and after a few seconds it detected my yukon 88e8001 onboard NIC
and I was able to conect to internet
I said partially because of that
my ISP uses dhcp. I first configured my ethernet port to use dhcp , but after reboot, I wasn't able to conect
the ethernet port was still there but under it wrote "no ip address"
I enter manually the ip, dns, gateway and now I was able to conect
I don't know if this configuration will work next time I reboot (and after my ISP change my IP I will have to change it)
Does anyone know why is that happening ?
