Hi,

 

I tried to install quite a lot of IONetworkingFamily.kexts but none was working. I'm wondering if there is a kext for this wired card. If there is not, would u please tell me how to create one from scratch?

 

Thanks,

GiuTor

Hi. If your dev-id is 16B3, so try this version. After that look at Console, IOReg and about that mac(PCI, Ethernet)

No, it's 16b3. I checked from Linux with lspci -nn:

Ah ok. Mine is actually bcm57785. Sorry about that :)

 

Can you compile http://www.insanelym...le/79-bcm5722d/ to support SL (32&64). 

Thanks again

Would you please tell me where shall I copy the above file? In the message log I get a file not found error related to IOEthernetAVBController.

 

Can you please share light on this matter, I'm brand new to the Mac world.

 

Thank u.

GiuTor

You can copy bcm5722d to S.../L.../E...IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns or just to S/L/E.
Don't forget lunch kext utility after.
In a word. Copy it to System/Library/Extensions. As it is easy to find.

Oh. Great! Can you give me your version for SL? I'll attache it to my link of BCM5772D. Because I can't compile it since I use Mavericks.

I was going to give you that instruction http://www.insanelym...-bit/?p=1932872

but I see you've already done it and that's good.

This is what I get when trying to load BCM5722D (please see the attached pictures). Did I miss anything? It doesn't say which are the missed dependencies.

 

I have also attached my chameleon boot file.

 

Thanks for your patience,

Still the same error as in the attached pictures. I wonder where is line 226 in the Info.plist file as the grep output shows line 23.

 

By the way, I do not want "ready to eat food". I DO wish to learn how to hack drivers as you and rals2007 are doing. Can you please point me to the guidelines?

 

Do you have any clue?

I think it happened because I changed version from 2.3.5 to 2.3.5b.

Now try this, I checked this on my computer, works. New version with your dev-id added
