No feedback?  :(

 

 

Mieze

My Z68 based Chipset ID 16 working well. But then that is expected i suppose :)

Hi Mieze,

 

 

I agree, this 8111G is a very buggy ethernet. 

 

Here I send my kernel log.

Thank you again for your invaluable effort.

 

Yours,

 

Dioclecio

Dear Mieze,

 

I made some uncommon tests and now my ethernet is working without some serious problems. The following link has the files used for this test.

http://j.mp/VHFRkz

 

First, I installed the version 1.2.2 of your driver. Then, my ethernet died after some minutes. After the boot and some minutes working, the ethernet stopped my network connection.

Folder: RehabMan-Realtek-Network-2013-1205

 

Second, I installed the last version of the RehabMan kext. I think it is based on the 1.1.3 version of your kext (I dont know). And again, my ethernet worked for some minutes. And it stopped with no advice in system.log.

Folder: Kexts used later

 

Finally, I uninstalled everything Realtek driver, and reinstalled 2 drivers

  • AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext and
  • Version 1.1.3 of an old RTL8111 driver that I had in my backup.

When I created the ethernet connection into the network setting, the default name of the ethernet assumed: "PCI Ethernet Slot Ethernet"

 

Now, the Clover boot folder has the following kexts:

AHCIPortInjector.kext
AppleAHCIPort.kext
AppleCameraInterface.kext
AppleHDA.kext
AppleIntelFramebufferAzul.kext
AppleMCCSControl.kext
AppleMobileDevice.kext
ApplePS2Controller.kext
AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext
AudioAUUC.kext
BTFirmwareUploader.kext
CPUSensors.kext
CoreStorage.kext
FakeSMC.kext
GeForce.kext
GenericUSBXHCI.kext
IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext
IOAHCIFamily.kext
IOATAFamily.kext
IOBluetoothFamily.kext
IOBluetoothHIDDriver.kext
IOSCSIArchitectureModelFamily.kext
IOSCSIParallelFamily.kext
IOUSBFamily.kext
MotMobileUSB.kext
NVDAResman.kext
RealtekRTL8111.kext
SMARTLib.plugin
VoodooHDA.kext
iPodDriver.kext

Now I am transferring a 700Mb file without interruptions. And my local ping is fast:

64 bytes from 10.0.2.1: icmp_seq=250 ttl=64 time=0.491 ms
64 bytes from 10.0.2.1: icmp_seq=251 ttl=64 time=0.441 ms

64 bytes from 10.0.2.1: icmp_seq=257 ttl=64 time=0.372 ms

Should I try something to help you?

Should I try to install the current driver version again?

 

Thank you again.

@Dioclecio: Are you sure that you had all other Realtek kexts uninstalled when you ran the tests with 1.2.x? I'm asking because the strange behavior was something I really couldn't explain and I remember a few weeks ago I had some users with a weird problem which turned out to be caused by another Realtek driver installed on the system.

Are you sure that you had all other Realtek kexts uninstalled when you ran the tests with 1.2.x?

 

Yes, I am. I had just the mentioned kexts into my Clover boot folder. 

 

I remembered that I changed some options of my clover config.plist. I checked and unchecked the following options:

img01.png
img02.png
img03.png
 

I tried to reproduce part of some generic config.plist file of the Clover installation.

 
Then, I made some tests with your new (1.2.2) version again. 

 

Kext 1.2.2 with the mentioned drivers (and AppleRTL*.kext) and the changed options: unstable network and local ping. A number of errors: Tx timeout. Lost interrupt?

Kext 1.1.3 with the same changes: network stable, but not so fast, good local ping and No Tx errors.

 

Thank you again.

 

Yours,

 

Dioclecio

@Dioclecio: That brings us back to the firmware hypothesis. There is one chance left. Realtek published an updated version of the linux driver  (8.038.00) which might help. Looks like I should merge in those code to my driver. Unfortunately this will require a week of full time work (due to the tests) which is something I can't afford to do in the near future.

@Dioclecio: Can you please send me the startup log messages of the driver version 1.1.3. I want to check if it identifies the chipset as 20 too.

Hi Meize,

Today i will *finally* be in front of the server with the multiport realtek card again for some pretty high availability testing. I know you are usually very quick and responsive but if you happen to be around and available starting about 4 hours from the time of this post i will be able to provide immediate feedback and we can have some back and forth testing. I am also available on Skype if you prefer that, i can PM you my Skype info.

 

Thanks!

Attached to this post you'll find the official version 1.2.1 of the driver which finally solves the issue with link aggregation after reboot. As changes are minimal there is no need to upgrade unless you are planning to use link aggregation.

Hi Mieze,

 

Yes, I think it does.

I understand that the AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext has no relation with my 8111G ethernet. And I think that some my previous changing in Clover had certain influence on the behaviour of the ethernet. The problem is that I don't know what made it work. 

 

If you have time, it would be interesting to know who these settings affected in this driver performance. 

 

Yours,

Frankly, I have no idea. It might be anything, starting with a kernel cache problem up to a problem caused by the Windows driver as there are settings which survive a reboot. Due to the lack of documentation it's almost impossible to find a starting point without doing extensive reverse engineering.

Hi Mieze,

 

In my tests with Linux, I saw that something still survives after a fast or cold reboot and, if I need to reset my ethernet it is necessary to unplug the power the computer. 

 

Some good news, during my 5 hours of normal work, the logs just registered 1 incident of Tx Timeout. 

Jul 10 09:03:45 desktop-casa-mac kernel[0]: Ethernet [RealtekRTL8111]: Tx timeout. Lost interrupt?
Jul 10 09:03:46 desktop-casa-mac kernel[0]: Ethernet [RealtekRTL8111]: Tx stalled? Resetting chipset. ISR=0x84, IMR=0x803f. 

and my router registered this:

Thank you again for your effort.

That's good news. It is absolutely normal to get a transmitter deadlock from time to time. Sometimes you get 3 within an hour but won't find another for the rest of the week. It's almost unpredictable. I guess it's an EMI related problem that can't be avoided completely.

Hello dioclecio,

 

I found this patch for the r8169 linux driver. I'm not quite sure if the described phenomenon is related to our problem but it might be worth further investigation:

 

https://git.kernel.o...8428a7d5f1f106f

 

Anyway I will keep you informed about the progress of the driver.

Take a look at the kernel logs. Which chipset number do you have?

Ok, I integrated the patch for chipset 20 I mentioned before. Please try the attached version and report back with kernel logs.

/* Disable L2/L3 PCIe link state. */
if (tp->mcfg == CFG_METHOD_21)
    WriteReg8(Config3, ReadReg8(Config3) &  ~RDY_TO_L23);

Good luck!
