In Topic: New Driver for Realtek RTL8111

08 July 2014 - 05:44 PM

EDIT: Forgot to mention I am on 10.9.4

 

1.2.2dev1 is working for me.  On 1.2 stable I was seeing something in the logs about lost interupt.  I don't get that now.

 

Here are logs for 1.2.2dev1.  Everything looks good.

Last night I rewrote much of the code in order to get closer to the underlying linux driver. The most important difference is that the driver now performs a reinitialization of the MAC when a connection is established the same way as the linux driver does. Maybe this is required to get the RTL8111G working properly?

 

Anyway I would like to ask all users to test this driver regardless of the RTL8111 version as this is not a bug fix but more a completely new driver. When giving feedback don't forget to take a look at the kernel log and include the chipset number (1-27) as this is the information uniquely identifying the version of the RTL8111. This driver has undergone only a limited number of tests. All I can confirm is that it works on chipset 16 (RTL8111E-VL).

 

Good luck!

I'm going to give this a try right now.  I've been having a strange issue with the latest stable version where I lose my IP some times when I wake from sleep.  Renewing DHCP lease doesn't work; I have to do a "make service inactive" then "make service active" in network preferences to get things working.  This has only happened 3 times since installing 1.2.

 

Here is what I get in the logs when I wake from sleep:

In Topic: VoodooHDA 2.8.5 for Mavericks (Slice + AnV) (Signed!)

01 June 2014 - 07:25 PM

there is an issue with  the value IOPCIClassMatch 0x04030000&0xffff0000 in the info.plist it causes a kernel panic at boot.

the value from slices 2.8.4 works. is there a reason for the value change?

 

I had a similar issue only I didn't have a kernel panic (I have applehdadisabler so that's probably why).  When I used the default IOPCIClassMatch I got a greyed out sound icon next to the clock.  When I changed to IOPCIMatch [my device id] everything works fine.

I updated from 2657 to 2669 today and now my mavericks volume wasn't showing in the clover gui.  

 

In my config.plist I have this to hide the EFI partition:

 
<key>Hide</key>
<array>
<string>EFI</string>
</array>
 
Since installing rev 2669 it is also hiding my mavericks volume. Is this a bug?  If not, is there a better way to hide my EFI parition?
 
I saw this in the preboot.log which is how I knew the Hide setting was hiding my mavericks volume:

Don't get your hopes up on this ever being fixed.  If it's not happening on actual apple hardware then it won't be fixed.  It'll end up like the fermi freeze issue.
