guys, an update
driver is working but a big bug has been spotted (thanks to autoy).
basically it has to do with the transmitter stalling when there's a fast stream of outgoing UDP packets. This happens with some p2p apps, resulting in a system freeze.
It shouldn't be too hard to fix, but it requires time to stress test it (I use netperf for this which is a great little tool)
However work has catched up, and since yesterday unfortunately time is not something that I have aplenty.
If I don't find the time to fix it by Monday evening, I'll release the kext and the source as they are now. This way somebody else could have a look at it a help me speeding up the debugging.
Almost forgot, this driver is not only for the 88e8001 chip; when completed it will support:
+ Marvell 88E8001, Belkin F5D5005, CNet GigaCard, DLink DGE-530T,
+ Linksys EG1032/EG1064, 3Com 3C940/3C940B, SysKonnect SK-9871/9872
these are the card supported by skge in linux.
for yukon2 (88E8021,22,35,...) the linux driver is different (sky2) and currently implemented in appleyukon.kext (alas badly)
on Monday I'll create a new thread with kext and sources
good job !,
good idea also to replace stinky "AppleYukon.kext" with anythink better

(hope this is not "pestering")

was it not scheduled to be released today?
Posted 17 April 2006 - 07:18 PM
it's still Monday
I had little time to sort out the UDP stream issue, but since the driver works fine for normal usage, I think some of you may appreciate to have it anyway
I haven't created a new thread as I really am in a rush now
The source will follow sometime during the week (need to edit a couple of comments and add a "license" header)
Please don't post asking how to install it or edit the .plist to add your vendorid/devid - there's plenty of instruction in this forum - I will not answer
anyway, enough talk, here's the driver

I get on startup "the system extention "/System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ skge.kext" was not installed properly and cannot be used..."
I get the same message afterwards for the AppleYukon.kext too.
Removing the AppleYukon one doesnt do the trick. At one point i did have Built-In ethernet in the networking prefs pane but it said its not plugged in.
typing in sudo dmesg somewhere in the mist there is a line starting with yukonOsx and the cards mac address.
any ideas guys?

sudo chmod -R 755 System/Library/Extensions/
sudo chown -R root:wheel System/Library/Extensions/
(the -R is important)

works great with 10.4.5 (myzar) on my p4p800se (which was a replacement for a previous MB of the same model that quit working, so it has a newer bios).

I also have a P4P800SE but still have problem getting skge.kext to work on Yukon 8001. Would apprecaite if you can detail out the steps on installing skge.kext as well as finding the vendorid/devid for Yukon 8001.
working great on my P4P800SE
Thank you for your help.
