Hi oline,

It should be "sudo -s", not "sudo s", to enter superuser mode.
It should be 0:0 (zero:zero), not O:O, to set ownership to root:wheel.

Or you can try this way:

1. Make sure "IOPCMCIAFamily.kext" is inside "System/Library/Extensions"
2. Open "Terminal"
3. Type "sudo -s"
4. Type "chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/IOPCMCIAFamily.kext"
5. Type "chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/IOPCMCIAFamily.kext"
6. Type "touch /System/Library/Extensions"
7. Exit "Terminal"
8. Reboot the OSX

In addition, you can also use some tools to help you install the kext files, such as kexthelper or OSXTool, if you are not familiar with terminal commands.

Hi oline,

It seems that file permissions were not set correctly. Try the following steps:

1. Make sure "IOPCMCIAFamily.kext" is inside "System/Library/Extensions"
2. Open "Terminal"
3. Type "sudo -s"
4. Type "chown -R 0:0 /System/Library/Extensions/IOPCMCIAFamily.kext"
5. Type "chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/IOPCMCIAFamily.kext"
6. Type "touch /System/Library/Extensions"
7. Exit "Terminal"
8. Reboot the OSX

Hello Chunnan,
have loaded as per your instructions 10.5.6 PCMCIAFamily.kext. yes I did permissions repair prior and after install, sorry but I only get a warning screen on boot up saying---

System extension cannot be used

the system extension "/System/Library/Extensions/
IOPCMCIAFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/
IOPCIFamily.kext" was installed improperly and
cannot be used. Please try reinstalling it, or contact
the product's vendor for an update


Have I overlooked something ?.

Many thanks for your efforts on helping so many resolve these PC card issues.

Hi guys,

Have been busy recently and haven't touched mac very much. I uploaded alpha IOPCMCIAFamily for 10.5.6 on the mediafire. You can give it a try.

Happy holidays. :D

P.S. Just put the WHOLE IOPCMCIAFamily on the Extensions folder and it should be loaded before the vanilla IOPCIFamily and IOPCCardFamily. Remember to fix the file permission or you might have to boot with "-f" everytime.

Hi Tek_No,

Make sure that the file permissions are set correctly and don't forget to "touch" your Extensions foler to rebuid the cache.

If possibe, can you post the full dmesg result under single user mode as a file here? Thanks.

Hi Chun-Nan,

I'm using 10.5.5 and I'm getting the following error:

.....

So apparently the PCMCIA kext is finding my LinkSys WPC54G wifi card but cannot reserve the needed memory or so...

Any ideas how this can be fixed?

I'm really running out on ideas on this one: I tried several versions of your driver but this doesn't make any difference. When loading IOPCMCIAFamily.kext from a terminal it is loading fine but when copying it to /System/Libraries/Extensions and rebooting leopard stalls very early with kernel dependency errors of IOPCCardFamily.kext (the one included inside IOPCMCIAFamily.kext


Thanks!

Take care,
Tek_No
