Hi Mitch_de,

You were correct in that the kalway AppleACPIPlatform.kext from the DVD was already patched or it had come from somewhere else on my system. Mine was 693162 bytes and reported V1.0.3.

So I tried the orig. Apple AppleACPIPlatform.kext from the Apple 10.5.2 Combo Update showing: 582961 Bytes, Version 1.2.1)

Now my system is not starting at all :( - I get a "You need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button for serveral seconds" error. I guess I will have to boot from the DVD and puit the original one back.

Thanks for the idea anyway.

Regards, Jim

Jim: You should always boot with -v

Are you sure you installed the kext correctly? And had you previously updated to 10.5.2 ?
What hardware do you have?



I've attached the beta2 kext installer here, as per the latest release from Chun-Nan. I'll leave him to post details of what's changed :P
This replaces ONLY IOPCIFamily and IOPCCardFamily.
I'll be doing a stock kext thing later.


For reference, what release is everyone using?

Hi all,

Many thanks to EqUaTe for the installation package. :)

Here is the beta2 PCCard Package for 10.5.2. In this edition, IOPCIFamily will try to fix devices/bridges misconfigured by BIOS, including pccards, ethernet, etc.

It doesn't require assigning computer name, memory ranges, or i/o ranges on IOPCCardFamily. IOPCIFamily will try to assign resources automatically.

Please help test it and post the result under singleuser mode if possible, especially for those have reported "checkBridgeBusIDs invalid sub/cardbus/pci settings of 0x0" error while using the IOPCIFamily.10.5.2.beta. Thanks.

Hi Chun Nan,
I'm so glad to you for your work!! This is my case.= I've installed Iatkos v 1.0r2 and your patch rev 8, I've an Option Pc Card Fusion and after your patch it is detected, the blu light is on but I can't see anything in the network preferences and so I can't connect to internet.
I've tried with some software like Option connection manager for mac or Launch2net but they don't recognize the card. Have you a solution for this? Many thanks in advance and very very compliments for your great work.

Hi All,

Thanks EqUaTe for the advice. After my last post I had to restore the AppleACPIPlatform.kext from my backup to get the machine to reboot.

I downloaded your new PCCard.10.5.2.eta2.pkg.zip and it started to run automatically. I was a bit reluctant to continue the install as there is a warning about needing the original AppleACPIPlaform.kext file and as we know, I haven't got it. But in for a penny in for a pound and I opted to continue. A reboot was required and so I did that.

Well good news. Before my system was taking several minutes to reboot. But now it seems to be very very much quicker - no longer a big start-upp delay :D .

Also the output from sudo dmesg | grep PC is much better - no more errors :-

Hi Max For,

It seemed that you didn't have the proper driver for the ethernet pccard. I will suggest yout o search it on the forum to see if there is any information on the driver. Thanks.

Hi Jim,

Your pccard contorller seems to be detected and be activated. What you need to do next is find the proper driver for your ethernet pccard. I will suggest yout o search it on the forum to see if there is any information on the driver. Thanks.

Hi nchellzz,

It is the first time I saw this error. I am sorry to say that I don't have AMD machine right now to test and I don't know if it has something to do with the error. Maybe you can google it on the internet for more information or try 10.5.2.beta2 to see if it works. Thanks.

Exactly which option card is it? I helped someone else (kizwan? I forget) get one working. Not ideal, but it worked.
The exact model is VERY important.

Checking these details on pcidatabase.com - this card is using the ralink chipset. Possibly RT2560.
I don't know if this works in leopard - you should hunt around for RT25xx / RT2500 drivers for osx in general, preferably leopard specifically. ralink themselves may be a good starting point.

It's probably worth a shot. Which release did you install for AMD?
I can probably try and work with you to get things working, but it's likely to be an extended process.
Also, who is the manufacturer of your UMTS card? Do they have OSX drivers? This alone won't fix it - you still need a kext for the specific hardware..

Do you see the panic with 10.5.2 beta2 ?


Have Sierra Wireless issued leopard drivers for the card?
Does the panic occur only if the card is connected, or always?

hi EqUaTe,

i actually haven't try 10.5.2beta just yet, i'll try it in a couple of hours, do you think there's any chance it might work since i use 10.5.1?

and the newest version of sierrawatcher 2.0.4 added support for leopard so i think yes they should be supported

here's the release notes

the panic always happened with or without the card inserted

i'll be back with the result from 10.5.2beta

Hi Chun-Nan.

Had a chance to try out the latest 10.5.2 beta today (through the installation package). Everything seems to work. It also fixed the broken bluetooth prior to this when I updated the IOPCIFamily.kext.

Let me know if you want me to post a copy of my ioreg or dmesg log.

Thanks again.

*EDIT* fixed panic, did everything right, but I still dont see anything bout a TI xx. what should I do?
got a Compaq Presario C571NR with a non-working minipci-e slot. really want my bcm4311 card to work. thanks!

Hi applehacker,

Thanks for your interest on PCCard driver. However, I am sorry to say that you didn't offer enough information on your machine so I really don't know how to help you slove the problem. Perhaps you can offer some information on your machine such as ioreg, demsg or specificaiton of the machine.

I did some research about your Compaq Presario C571NR but I was not sure if it is what you have right now. http://h10025.www1.h...n...71&lang=en#
According to that link (and I asume that you have the same notebook as it showed), I didn't see any information that that model has TI chip pccard controller. Therefore, I think that is why you didn't see any TI information after trying the pccard driver.

What IOPCIFamily included in the package does is just try to correct those devices misconfigured by BIOS so that those devices can be detected and recognized by the system. After that, you still need the proper drivers to make the devices work. IOPCIFamily itself doesn't offer the drivers for any devices.

Let me know if you have further question. Thanks.

Oh, I see. Thank You for your answer. My PCI-E Bcm4311 card is not being recognized in OS X, even though it uses the same exact chipset as regular Mac cards. I thought this would allow it to see it. Uphuck himself said that my card should be natively supported, so I thought the driver was already provided in the OS, and this would just let it recognize it. Ive got that dammed kill switch on my C571NR, and its really bugging me. If you have any suggestions on what to do, please let me know. Here are my system specs if this helps.The message from the mesg | grep PC stated all the kernel dependencies, nothing else.

Compaq Presario C500 (C571NR)
Intel GM945 Chipset
Realtek Ethernet Card
Bcm4311 Mini pci-e wireless card
Intel Pentium Dual-Core Processor @ 1.73 ghz SSE2+SSE3(can this support EFI?)

If the mini pci-e is an unsolveable problem, what can I do to replace it and get a fully working Hackbook Pro. Thanks for your input!

Hi All,

Back with a quick update. I tried latest 10.5.2 beta and that gets my Comtrend PCMCIA card working (RT2500). I downloaded the driver from http://www.ralinktec.../Macintosh.html and it installed fine. The wireless utility runs, I add my WEP code and shows the device as connected. The lights flash and all looks good. My router shows that MAC address as connected so all should be wonderfull! I used the Network utility to allocate a manual IP address, subnet mask and gateway as I read sometimes DHCP does not work correctly.

BUT...

I just can't get on the Internet with it. If I leave the wired NIC connected it, Internet access if fine. However, If I unplug the wired NIC no go anymore.

IFCONFIG shows two active NICS, two IP addresses on the correct subnet.

I have editied NetworkPreferences.plist and changed en0 to en1 etc. but no go.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Jim

Oh, I see. Thank You for your answer. My PCI-E Bcm4311 card is not being recognized in OS X, even though it uses the same exact chipset as regular Mac cards. I thought this would allow it to see it. Uphuck himself said that my card should be natively supported, so I thought the driver was already provided in the OS, and this would just let it recognize it. Ive got that dammed kill switch on my C571NR, and its really bugging me. If you have any suggestions on what to do, please let me know. Here are my system specs if this helps.The message from the mesg | grep PC stated all the kernel dependencies, nothing else.

Compaq Presario C500 (C571NR)
Intel GM945 Chipset
Realtek Ethernet Card
Bcm4311 Mini pci-e wireless card
Intel Pentium Dual-Core Processor @ 1.73 ghz SSE2+SSE3(can this support EFI?)

If the mini pci-e is an unsolveable problem, what can I do to replace it and get a fully working Hackbook Pro. Thanks for your input!


Are you positive it's mini-pcie ? Not mini-pci?
Regardless, neither are related to this project really.
Your best bet would be to get device id's and make sure they're in
/System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext/Contents/Info.plist

If they're not, add them. (Read the file first before making any changes).



total Noob here
been following the posts - how many people with ACPI problems have installed Power Management patch?


Which power management patch are you referring to? If it's the bundle, it's unrelated.
It's mostly people using old versions of acpi kexts.

Hi All,

Back with a quick update. I tried latest 10.5.2 beta and that gets my Comtrend PCMCIA card working (RT2500). I downloaded the driver from http://www.ralinktec.../Macintosh.html and it installed fine. The wireless utility runs, I add my WEP code and shows the device as connected. The lights flash and all looks good. My router shows that MAC address as connected so all should be wonderfull! I used the Network utility to allocate a manual IP address, subnet mask and gateway as I read sometimes DHCP does not work correctly.

BUT...

I just can't get on the Internet with it. If I leave the wired NIC connected it, Internet access if fine. However, If I unplug the wired NIC no go anymore.

IFCONFIG shows two active NICS, two IP addresses on the correct subnet.

I have editied NetworkPreferences.plist and changed en0 to en1 etc. but no go.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Jim


I believe that's a common issue with the ralink drivers.
It seems they don't work very well on non-mac's. No idea why.
It's not an issue with this project.

There is a thread somewhere on IM where someone was customising the driver - I'd try to hunt it down and have a look.


Please HELPME!, i forgot to backup the original files and after applied the newones the rev8 , my system crash
PLEASE can anyone send me the original files, also cant boot in single user $#"!$#"!$

Many Thanks!!! :( :D :( :( :( :( :(


I'll try and get them to you tomorrow, but your best bet may be to get them off your osx install dvd..
You'll also need that to restore them.
