well,did new install.
now on amd x2 whit the TOH amd dvd.
Time machine works now,but the funny thing is,my network dont work.
But i can backup and it runs full automatic every hour.
So is it really the network it depends on??

on my intel machine,done whit TOH Intel sse2/sse3 the timemachine runs for maybe a minute or so.
almost 1 Gb then it stops,1 hour later it starts auto.
I have network working,and did the fixes in sysconfig,but stil crashes.
would really like to see it working,the animation for timemachine works also,really cool.

saw something that he acces calendar also,but i can only open icall when i have rosseta enabled whit it.
Maybe some to see for it?
saw it in preferences,there is al file for timemachine.

I had some TM issues when i tried to use the same backup volumes from my previous Toh install (now i'm running BrazilMac - Vanilla Kernel updated to 10.5.1). THe solution was to erase the volume with the old ToH backups and then re-choose it as a backup disk.I had some TM issues when i tried to use the same backup volumes from my previous Toh install (now i'm running BrazilMac - Vanilla Kernel updated to 10.5.1).

I did that also some times,but didnt work.
Timemachine starts again,then after few minutes (almost 1 gb) it stops,no error
or somthing. Just finished,and 1 hour later it makes the next backup.

But network is not the thing ill think,cause on this machine(intel) i have network running,but on my AMD no network,but Timemachine is full running. So???

UPDATE!!

I finally managed to make it work! I found the solution here: http://forum.osx86sc...?...509&p=20212

For some reason TM wants the ethernet interface en0 to be used, and for some reason in my machine my network card was assigned at en2! If you have two Network cards i think en0 just has to be assigned, then you can use wathever you want

So try removing /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist (backup first) and reboot (this worked for me)
and editing /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist if needed

nb: I also have the modified kext, so i dont know if is necessary or not!
;)


I messed around with everything in this topic, but saved this for last. I should have tried it first because it worked, I just removed every bit of info about my network, rebooted, and then my network interface was picked up as en0. I then had to go to time machine prefernces and select disk for backup and pick no disk, then select disk for backup again right after that and pick my 2nd disk. My time machine backup worked immediately after that.

I got time machine working with the binary that was posted above. But as it turns out, I also need a different IONetworkingFamily.kext to get my ethernet working. How can I edit or merge the two?

Has anyone got their restore working? Just a question to throw out there. How can you load the kext if you need to restore but your not actually running the OS? Any ideas?

For anyone who did not get this to work with the above fixes, also give

TimeMachineScheduler

a try.

This freeware not only mounts/unmounts your time machine on command,
it also lets you specify the backup interval from 1 up to 12 hours.

Personally, every 12 hours is enough to backup for me :(

:rolleyes:


Confirmed, this worked for me. I was on en1 because when I first setup Leo I was using my onboard lan (nForce 4). I recently switched to a pci nic card. All I did was delete the .plist and well, I think this will finish the sentence nicely ... Posted Image

I have no modified .kext for this to work.

Stats:
Drive is plugged in via USB.
AMD Chipset

TM works perfect, even restore works. Now, i got only 20gb part+20gb for tm.

Of course i get the message its full and so, my question is : what excatly will tm delete from the tm partition ? the 1Backp too or just the last ones ?

tx

b

€: time machine should have its own drive. Samll partition[40gb usb hd], ends in a error message when full. I can restore, but after that i get error message about full hd etc.. and since than, i cant install on my amd setup. I deleted all, internal,external hd, yet cant bypass boot cd : ___....

USe tM and make 2 Backups only, 1 clean after install and a 2nd with all the software installed.

Yo! Time Machine now works! I had to delete the NetworkInterfaces.plist
I installed the IONetworkingFamily.kext - from above too.

I have upgraded to 10.5.2.

Just installing TimeMachineScheduler now! ;)

Cheers

Hello Everybody,

After having no success with the "replace IONetworkingFamily.kext/remove quarantine/nuke NetworkInterfaces.plist" approach, I stumbled upon the following gem on another website:
-------------
"Browse to the Time Machine drive in Finder, there should be a folder called 'Backups.backupdb' in there there should be one folder with the name of your machine. Check that matches the 'Computer Name' set in 'System Preferences / Sharing'."
-------------

I told Time Machine to use "No Drive", which turned off Time Machine. I then opened my backup drive/volume in finder and created the two folders referenced above. I then went back to the Time Machine preferences and re-selected my backup drive (an external 500GB USB drive). I then started a TM backup and noticed TM created another folder on my backup drive with the same name as the manually created folder but with the prefix " 2" (space-two). I suspect perhaps only the first folder (Backups.backupdb) needs to exist for this work-around to succeed, but I haven't tried vreating just the first folder.

Looks like it's working so far... :D

I had the same mysterious problem of TM failing backup after a split second - everything else working (kernel patches not working) on my flat image leopard (10.5.2 with graphics update) built on Gigabyte 965P-DS3.
I tried a few things suggested here and thanks to you guys for suggesting the service order of the network cards.
It works now (I haven't tested restore yet)
I removed every item in the networks list (serial port - modem - I made inactive) - rebooted - I added a network card to the list - put it first in the service order - it is en0 - attached the cable and it connected - In TM I assigned a USB drive partition as target - chose backup now - and it started and is backing up as I type.
I hope this helps someone
Thanks Guys - keep up the good work!

Unohoo,

Just to clarify, did you do this change through the networking preference pain or did you delete the plist? This seems easier than screwing around with the .plist.

Thanks!!
