My 3 attempts over the weekend failed. Couldn't get to "PART 5: Post Install - Some Machine Specific Fixes" as after completing all steps of PART 4 my system would hang ~1-3 mins after boot-up.

ANy ideas what I missed?



Hi auMouth, I had the problems with this section too, which I overcame in two ways:-

1. I skipped the whole section bar this bit ..
* Under 'OSx86 Software' --> Kext Helper b7 + Kext Utility + MSR Tools + ShowAllFiles (These are great tools for later when we start adding Kext Files)

2. When trying to re-boot afterwards, I had to press the power button to jog the PC into continuing with the startup, as the pc seem to hang part way through. Later when I ran the 10.6.8 Combo update it negated the need for me to do this.

HTH :)

Got my N36L!

Followed the instructions, installed SL, updated straight to 10.6.8 and used the 10.8.0 kernel for it. Works fine. Also having to deal with having to press the power button whilst booting up. Anyone got any idea's on how to fix that? It's hard when I want to remotely restart it!

Not got a graphics card, just using the integrated one. It seems to run ok at 1024x768 resolution. Not too fussed about this as I'm just going to use it as a server. won't be connecting it up to any display after it's all set up.

PS - My next challenge is to find out why, (from Finder) when I browse to a shared folder on my mac mini (real) that I see the share/drive name but get a message saying 'The operation can’t be completed because the original item for “USB Drive” can’t be found' when I try to open it. I have given the folder read permission to everyone and can get to it from Windows or Linux. I guess the fun never stops ... cheers !!


I'm also having this problem! Think it might be do with the mac address being 00:00:00....? Hmm, Can't seem to find any info about this anywhere. Kind of a dealbreaker for me is this. I'm gonna keep at it and try to solve it but if not, think I'll keep SL on a partition but end up using WHS mainly (ARGH!)! Been trying scripts to change mac address but it either freezes the server or when it tries to change the mac address on boot, it seems to hang and when I press the power button, instead of continuing the boot it restarts! Hmm..

Anyway, thanks for the detailed guide Janitor! And everyone else on the thread - the tips have come in handy! :unsure:

I don't think it is necessarily related to the hardware. I stuck in another card that runs with the MY8053.kext and I get the same problem trying to mount shares on the HP. The problem doesn't occur on clients mounting the server volumes as shares. Unfortunately, there are many reasons why this could happen so it is a matter of narrowing the list down. Computer names are the first ones to look at. OSX doesn't like spaces or symbols in those.

Hmm, not the hardware then. I was about to dig out my Apple USB Ethernet adaptor to test it out.

Yea, like you said, clients can mount the server's shares with no problems. Both my MacBook and iMac can connect to the server and mount shares/screenshare fine. But when trying to access the AFP shares of the iMac/MacBook it pulls up the error.

Funnily enough, I can mount the clients shares on the server using SMB. I've enabled SMB on the clients and although it doesn't pop-up at the side on the server, it mounts the SMB shares using Finder>Go>Connect to Server and typing in SMB://192.xxx.x.xx.

Just seems to have a problem with AFP. Can't even use the mount_afp commands through terminal. They pull up the following error:

mount_afp: AFPMountURL returned error 22, errno is 22

Could it possibly be the kernel? Is anyone still on 10.6.7 using the earlier kernel (not the 10.8.0 kernel)? Still have the same problems? If no-one is still on 10.6.8, and I can find the time, I'll back my server up and re-install it to 10.6.7 this time and see if the problem is still there. Could be a kernel problem maybe??


Not really sure what else now, I've looked through the logs in console and can't seem to find anything helpful.

Firstly, delete the BCM5751.kext from /S/L/E and rebuild the caches using Kext Utility. The BCM5751.kext is already in IONetworkingFamily.kext, so it gets loaded twice and this causes the DHCP problems.

Secondly, Kext Helper b7 and ##### do not always do a good job of installing kexts. Check that all the kexts are where they should be and check in System Profiler/Software/Extensions that they are getting loaded. Alternatively, type kextstat in a Terminal window and this will give you all the loaded kexts. Is IOUSBFamilyRollback.kext there? If any are missing, install them manually and rebuild caches.

I have no problems with booting, networking or anything on my rig except occasionally shutdown and sleep and for that we really need a DSDT.aml file but neither Janitor nor I can get one to compile at the moment.


Hi,

I have rebuilt and installed the IONetworkingFamily.kext (without the BCM5751.kext) and the network adapter does not work. If I do it the other way around (BCM5751.kext, instead of IONetworkingFamily.kext) the adapter is seen (but I have to manually enter the IP details by hand to get it working). DHCP does not work and the adapter remains fixed as 00:00:00 etc.

As an aside, installing the IOUSBFamily Rollback from #####, locks up all my usb devices such as keyboard and mouse and renders the machine unusable.


Many thanks

Hi Saf,

I think i've sort of found an answer (or a part of it)

It's in this link http://www.gizmolabs.../Main/OSXSetMac

To test it, I opened a terminal window and typed the following:-

1. sudo ifconfig en0 lladdr 00:11:22:33:44:55
2. I then type ifconfig to see if the change worked which it did
3. I then browsed to a network drive and can now access the remote files ;)
4. Will read the rest of the instructions on how to make the changes permanent tomorrow.
5. Please note that the ethernet address still appears as 00:00:00 when you look at the network details in system pref and DHCP does not work, but I could not access remote files before this change.

Cheers

Great stuff TK!

I had very quickly experimented with manually assigning MAC address when i was testing the patched AppleBCM5751Ethernet.kext file, as the forum i was working from had made mention of the zeroed out MAC address issue...

However, i remember using -> sudo ifconfig en0 ether 00:11:22:33:44:55
I left it out of the guide mostly because it would also reset back to 00:00:00:00:00:00 after reboot, and i just figured that manually assigning your IP address in System Preferences was a more stable solution in the long term... Might be worth looking into again if it has been causing such problems, especially if we can figure out a way to make it stick!

Let us know how i works out with the gizmolab's solution.

Unfortunately, i've been wasting FAR too much time tweaking framebuffer personalities lately and screwing with my video card to get HDMI audio to play through that dratted Radeon HD 5450, so i've put off maintaining and editing the guide. Sorry! My bad!

The good news is that i've had some improved success with the 5450 autodetecting the correct type of displays connected (i.e. via HDMI, VGA and DVI) and have FINALLY found a compiled and working DSDT file for our machines! Haven't had much luck with any custom edits just yet, but we are slowly some making progress ;)

Chat soon.

That hack has never worked for me. Just causes an instant reboot. Oddly enough, I have no en0 or en1 allocated. My network adapters always want to start from en2. Will have to dig into that when I have time.

Is it possible to install Lion using this guide. Reason being is I only have the SL dvd's that came with my 2011 MBP. I have however already purchased Lion from the app store.
Thanks

Unfortunately, not yet :lol:

We're still waiting for a patched Legacy Kernel for Lion to run on AMD chips.
You're just going to have to hold out until the legendary Nawcom has had a chance to save us all :(

Like us, you can keep an eye on the progress at: http://blog.nawcom.com/

I did the following to tide me over with the mac address issue

Created a file with the following text :-
sudo -S ifconfig en0 lladdr 00:11:22:33:44:55 (not sure if you need the -S bit)
exit

then saved it as macadd.command in my top level directory

Once done I ran a terminal session and entered the following command:-

chmod 775 macadd.command from the same directory

Then I added the macadd.command file to the system preferences, Accounts, <myaccount>, Login items

Now when I boot it runs the command automatically, upon logon, but still prompts me for the root password. However, at least this way i don't forget to do it.

Apparently, I can edit a file called sudoers which can disable the sudo password for certain commands such as ifconfig (for example) but can't work out how to do it yet.

I'm sure this is fairly simple, but I as my linux/unix skills are at about 0.1% it's pretty tough for me. I just google like mad.

HTH

TK

PS - For those that don't know:-

1. renaming a file to .command turns it into a 'shell' file that calls terminal when you run it
2. changing the permissions to 775 allows that shell permission to run

PPS - Splonk - Interesting that your results are different, I wonder why that is ?
PPPS - Cheers Janitor, glad to be able to give a bit back .. even if it's only a little (feeling very pleased with myself :) )

When I already have the ethernet connected and it has an IP from the router, I used to type the following command:

sudo ifconfig en0 ether xx:xx:xx...

and it used to freeze the system.

I've tried your sudo ifconfig en0 lladdr xx:xx:xx... and that also freezes my server. However, I had the thought that it could be because the ethernet was active. So whilst the server was frozen, I took out the ethernet cable, waited 20 seconds, put it back in, pressed the power button once and the shut down menu popped up which it always did, BUT the mouse started to move! It unfroze, I typed ifconfig and the mac address was the one I set! And connecting to shares worked fine! Great stuff!

I've already tried the gizmolabs method. It uses launchd to launch the script at boot, however, I could see the script being loaded (and a failed message) in verbose mode whilst booting and it froze the boot. Wouldn't let me get to the desktop, pressing the power button to continue boot would instead reboot the server.

I'll give it another go though. I'll also give your macadd.command method a go tk007b. :wacko:

Does anyone else's server freeze when running the sudo ifconfig command whilst the ethernet is already plugged in and has an IP with the 00:00:00:00:00 MAC Address?

Either way, we're getting closer to a permanent solution for it! Thanks all for the help and for posting on successful methods :(

Just to add, if you want to edit the sudoers here's how to do it (bear in mind you should be careful when messing with the sudoers file but if you follow the instructions below, you'll be ok!):

1 - Make a backup of sudoers

sudo cp /etc/sudoers /etc/sudoers.bkup

2 - Edit sudoers using the sudoers command

sudo visudo

3 - Keep arrow down pressed until you get to the section User privilege specification and then arrow down so terminal cursor is at %admin

4 - Type $ then a then enter

5 - Type the following (replacing username with your username!):

username ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:/sbin/ifconfig

6 - Press ESC then :wq

7 - DONE! :)

It'll do what you want to do, I've just done it on mine. It means it won't require the password when using sudo with the ifconfig command. You'll still have to type sudo though, it just won't need the password.

Hope it helps :)

Hi Saf,

Thanks that did the trick !!! :) :) :) :) :)

As an alternative to the macadd.command option, I installed an app called Sickbeard (download scheduling / renaming app) and noticed they have their own method for auto running, which I have copied below.


1. Open Automator, choose new Application workflow.
2. Drag a 'Run Shell Script' action to the workflow area on the right.
3. Set the 'Shell' drop-down to '/bin/bash' and the 'Pass Input' drop-down to 'as arguments'
4. In the text box, clear the text there and replace with: /usr/local/bin/pythonw /Applications/Sick-Beard/SickBeard.py -d
5. Be sure to change the path to your SickBeard.py as necessary. Then Save As, Application, and save the file where you like. I put it in the SickBeard application folder.
6. From the System Preferences/Accounts pane, choose the user that will run SickBeard at login, choose 'Login Items', and click the '+' button to navigate to and select your new Automator application.

I'm sure you could modify it to work with the sudo ifconfig en0 lladdr 00:11:22:33:44:55 command quite easily and it may be a better option ??? ..possibly .. ??? .. just a thought.

Anyhow, i'll stick with the way I have it, as that 's working and if it ain't broke ... :rolleyes:

Thanks again for your help :D

Back in the old days when I needed to spoof MAC addresses to get hotel internet to work it was always considered good manners to proceed thusly:

sudo ifconfig en0 down
sudo ifconfig en0 lladdr etc
sudo ifconfig en0 up

lladdr and ether are identical btw. ether was used up to 10.4 after which lladdr is the preferred parameter. I'm wondering if the fact I have two ethernet cards is causing my woes. Removing one isn't going to solve many problems for me.

Ok, after spending the last 7 hours trying to solve my N36L issues, I seem to have done it!

It seems that the kext which janitor supplied for the ethernet card in the N36L wasn't the best one to use. I wasn't able to change mac address using commands in terminal. They caused the server to freeze, and only by pressing the power button a few times did it unfreeze.
Which brings me on to the next problem of having to press the power button to continue booting. The ethernet kext was causing the server to freeze during bootup requiring the power button to be pressed. I reinstalled everything, didn't use multiboot and manually put the IOUSB kexts in etc and it as the ethernet card causing all the freezes.

I've found another kext, put the device/vendor id in which gives a smooth boot and no freezes. Unfortunately, the mac address is still 00:00:00... but I've found something which will change it at bootup with no on screen prompts. All done automagically when booting so there's no problems and you never know.

I'll post the new kext along with the mac changing method tonight. Right now, I need time away from the laptop! It's either that or I was going to try some kexts and try to get my integrated graphics in the N36L to work at a better resolution than 1024x768!

But it looks like I might be able to use this as a server after all. No more power button / ethernet issues / connecting to shares issues! Just gotta see how stable it is for the next week or two.

P.S. Considering this has a 1.3ghz dual core AMD, its not bad. I've put on Plex and the Plex Media Server, and the N36L is easily able to live transcode SD + 720P MKVs and stream it out to my iPhone/iPad. Think 1080P might be pushing it but I'll give it a go later ;)

I am stuck with the networking issues .. No matter what I do, I can't access any ip address (not even my routers ip address) from SL. I checked my router's page from other pc and it shows HP's ip address connected to ethernet port but shows it as inactive.

Here is what I did up till now-

- Installed SL and updated to 10.6.8 (without USB rollback as it froze the USB and I had to reinstall everything)
- Installed IONetworkingFamily.kext and AppleBCM5751Ethernet.kext files using Kext Helper b7 in following combinations -
A - IONetworkingFamily.kext and AppleBCM5751Ethernet.kext files Both - Ethernet was green in settings but couldn't access any ip or website. (tried both manual with DHCP and manual Ip )
B - IONetworkingFamily.kext and AppleBCM5751Ethernet.kext files using Kext Helper b7 and Deleted BCM5751ethernet.kext - Ethernet icon turned red in the network settings
C- IONetworkingFamily.kext and AppleBCM5751Ethernet.kext files using Kext Helper b7 and Replaced IONetworkingFamily.kext with IONetworkingFamily.kext from another hackintosh SL - Network icon was green but no access to any ip address.

(Repaired permissions with kext utility in all of the above scenarios)

I am using the following specs

HDD 160GB
Onboard graphics

I'll really appreciate any help/suggestions to solve this issue.

Thanks

Here goes my way to solve the networking issues. Pay attention freebazee1, hopefully this will help! :) It looks like a lot, but every single step is there for newbies. It'll take about 5 minutes.

  • Leave IONetworkingFamily.kext untouched. Don't put in any kexts and don't edit it. Don't need it. Just delete anything which is AppleBCM57*** in S/L/E and also in S/L/E/IONetworkingFamily.kext. Run Kext Utility after deleting anything and reboot.
  • Unzip and put in the BCM5722.kext directly into S/L/E (NOT in IONetworkingFamily.kext) that I've attached below.
    Attached File  BCM5722D.zip   44.54KB   55 downloads
  • Run Kext Utility.
  • Reboot. You should be have booted with no problems, no hangs and have a network connection but you most probably won't get an IP address. That's fine!
  • Type 'ifconfig' in terminal and make a mental note of which one your ethernet is. Most probably en0.
Next the script that sets your correct MAC address and will make sure the kext works perfect when your turn your server on.

1. Open Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/).
2. Type: cd /Library
3. Press Return.
4. Type: mkdir StartupItems
5. Press Return. (If you encounter an error, continue to step 6.)
6. Type: cd StartupItems
7. Press Return.
8. Type: sudo mkdir MACADD
9. Press Return.
10. Type: cd MACADD
11. Press Return.
12. Type: sudo pico MACADD
13. Press Return.
14. In the pico editor, paste in the following text making sure that you've edited the network interface (en0, en1 etc if you need to) and change xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx to your mac address.

#!/bin/sh

. /etc/rc.common

##
# Configure a network interface MAC Address setting
##
#
# This script will set the MAC Address setting for the specified interface(s)
#
# The name of the interface (ex. en0) must be edited to match the interface
# to which the MACADD setting should be applied
#
##

StartService ()
{
ConsoleMessage "Configuring MACADD"

### uncomment lines and change the value following 'ifconfig' as appropriate for network interface and mac address

if [ "${MACADD:=-NO-}" = "-YES-" ]; then

/sbin/ifconfig en0 lladdr xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
/sbin/ifconfig en0 down
/sbin/ifconfig en0 up

fi

}

StopService ()
{
return 0
}

RestartService ()
{
return 0
}

RunService "$1"
15. When you have finished customizing the file, save it (press Control-O), press Return, and exit pico (press Control-X).

16. Type: sudo chmod 755 MACADD

17. Press Return.

18. Type: sudo pico StartupParameters.plist

19. Press Return.

20. In the pico editor paste in the following text (no editing required!):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>Description</key>
<string>Can set MACADD</string>
<key>OrderPreference</key>
<string>None</string>
<key>Provides</key>
<array>
<string>MACADD</string>
</array>
<key>Requires</key>
<array>
<string>Network Configuration</string>
</array>
</dict>
</plist>
21. Then save it (Control-O), press Return, and exit pico (Control-X).
22. Type: sudo chmod 755 StartupParameters.plist
23. Press Return.
24. Type: sudo pico /etc/hostconfig
25. When prompted, enter your password and press return.
26. In the pico editor, add this line at the bottom:

MACADD=-YES-
27. Save it (Control-O), press Return, and exit pico (Control-X).

When you restart the computer, your specified MAC address is set for the interface that you specified. Check it by typing ifconfig in terminal.

Notes

1. The MACADD will be reset after changing a Location, waking the computer from sleep, or changing the state of the network interface. To use the script again without having to restart, enter the following command:

sudo SystemStarter start MACADD

2. If you experience any issues or wish to not set MACADD during startup, you can turn off the new script by changing the MACADD line in /etc/hostconfig to:

MACADD=-NO-

DONE! :)

Everything should be set up and working fine.

Here is what I did up till now-

- Installed SL and updated to 10.6.8 (without USB rollback as it froze the USB and I had to reinstall everything)

I had the same issue but the USB rollback should really be done otherwise you might come across problems later on. I didn't do the rollback, didn't think it was necessary until I got a kernel panic when I plugged in a USB stick and it all froze. It's a bit random. But ##### didn't do the rollback for me either so use the following kexts I've attached. Install them with Kext Wizard Download Kext Wizard, select both kexts and tick the box which says System/Library/Extensions. And install and then repair permissions etc as normal when doing anything with the extensions folder. It's how I did it :) The reason why it froze the USB was that ##### deleted the IOUSB kexts but then didn't replace them so the USB stopped working.

Attached File  USB_rollback_kexts.zip   1.11MB   33 downloads

Hope all that helps someone!

tk007b - Give my ethernet method a try, won't take long and the kext is a tad more stable along with the auto mac address setting which is a cleaner method!


Credits
The BCM5722D kext - credit goes to adlan. I just edited the device/vendor ID into the kext so it'd recognise our ethernet card.
The MACADD method - Copied it from somewhere and I've edited it to update it a little for our N36L. I believe the guide was written by Apple! I've just edited it.
The USB Rollback kexts - They're the ones ##### provide. Someone attached them to a post - can't remember who!

Sorry for the VERY long post! Just wanted to share what I've learnt/done :)
Let me know how it goes :)

Thanks Saf ... that was a really helpful post ... Actually I'M GETTING THE MAC ADDRESS WITHOUT USING ANY OF THE SCRIPTS. So when I rebooted after adding BCM5722.kext, MAC address was showing in the ethernet tab in network settings. I've rebooted couple of times after that and the MAC address is still there and also start up and shutdown are smooth too.

I'll continue with the USB roll back in the morning after setting up screen share, just incase :).

Thanks again

I'll continue with the USB roll back in the morning after setting up screen share, just incase ;).

Thanks again



No problem, Glad I could help. I'm jealous that you've got the MAC address without the use of any scripts! Hmm, wonder if anyone else'll get it as well... Yup, shutdown/startup should be without any network errors now.

As soon as network starts working, I always enable screen sharing and remote login. Been burnt too many times with non-working USB and other problems!

:P
