#2097795 AppleIntelE1000e.kext for 10.8/10.7/10.6/10.5

Posted by Mieze on 25 December 2014 - 07:50 AM

I just wanted to let you all know that I'm working on a new driver for the Intel gigabit ethernet NICs. Although I'm still in a very early stage of development, I already managed to get the driver to load and recognize the NIC. Link change detection is working too and packets are going out, but I still have trouble with reception. I will publish it here in the forum as soon as possible but don't expect me to be ready before January. UPDATE: Packet reception has been fixed and transmitter deadlock detection is working. The driver recovers from tx deadlocks successfully and resumes operation. Now I'll have to fix tx checksum offload which is still broken. Mieze  :cat:

I tried also to reproduce the problem, not only on my MBP and I was unable to do it, but also on another hack laptop that has a broadcom wifi , which is OS X native, and even this machine did't drop transfers or hangs. Rock solid. Not the TCP/IP stack ...   I ordered a CT Desktop Intel NIC (82754), which should be OS X native, but I've been unable to install it so far. This NIC has its own BIOS which start after the motherboard BIOS and requires CSM enabled in mobo's BIOS options. Which is incompatible with CLOVER in UEFI partition, as my machine has.  Eventually at last I was able to boot but the Clover boot 1st page is not in Full HD as usual but in VGA and then, when the machine boots and gets to the login and the video sync is messed up and I cannot see anything readable on my monitor . Tried both DVI and HDMI, always the same. Tried with graphics option : 1920*1080 in Clover options, but nothing.  Who has hints or knows how to install this NIC unde...

I did not mean to disrespect or blame anyone. I was merely reporting my observation because it kinnda surprised me. I really appreciate your work on this driver and the excellent driver for the rtl8100 series.  I didn't interpret it as disrespect for anyone or anything, it was just a metaphor, a joke, in order to express that you are on the wrong track. Technically speaking a driver neither can be guilty nor innocent.  :cat:

@dr hurt - thanks for the link to the realtek site.  surprise! that (old) driver seems to be stable for me under 10.10.2 on my H61-USB3 system.   all the other versions (slice, hhak, mieze, rehabman) will hang after 10-15 minutes on Yosemite. Note: all these others do work just fine under Mavericks 10.9.5 though. Anyway,  and I am running this box on a 100base-T network (off my wireless extender) ...  so i don't need TSO or anything "fancy".  I did buy an alternative  USB3 to GigE port that is working on yosemite too. but its good to have the native port as well. I had a similar experience with my laptop where all the newer 2.5 and 3.x versions for the Intel E1000e card hang after a short while.  But an older version (less featured) is the only one that is stable...  Please stop blaming all these innocent drivers because you are on a completely wrong track. The drivers work fine, but Yosemite's network stack is broken and the cause o...

Hi, Mieze!I have notebook with RTL8139\8101E, but i can't get working it on mac os.i have tried a lot of kexts. AppleRTL8169.kext fails device probe and do nothing. R1000SL.kext recognizes card, but it says "cable not connected" in system settings. Your kext runs (after adding devid to Info.plist), it recognizes cable and gets DHCP settings, but when i try to ping google dns or primary gateway it fails and says, that connection timeout. This network card works well on windows.Here is kernel log from debug version of your last build. The driver doesn't support RTL8139\8101E NIC. You are definitely using the wrong driver. Mieze Just realised that copying files from my mac to my android tablet over FTP is very slow using this driver. I barely get 1 MB/s. Its a bit faster copying from the tablet to the mac. Using the driver from realtek's site, I get around 7 MB/sAn Android tablet with an ethernet port? I'm not sure if this is really a driver issue? Badly config...

Ok so I build the RehabMan source version 1.2.3. again for 10.9 and running it in yosemite. So far no connection issues anymore. kext attached - anyone else can confirm having no more issues now? As the problem is in Yosemite's network stack it can't be fixed by the driver. Your attached kext won't help. Mieze

Has anyone got the current driver running stable on Yosemite without network going down occasional on heavy load with multiple files? The problem is Yosemite itself. Please see: http://www.insanelym...6105/?p=2089859 The solution is easy too: get back to 10.9.5! Mieze

well i install it on yosemite (appstore) from multi-beast and i only boot correctly with -fi have usbmmc errorsNo support for tonymacx86 tools. The error messages aren't driver related.Mieze

Neither the driver interface nor the driver itself has changed and the hardware related code is completely OS independent. As most users have no problems at all while some report errors with other drivers too, I'm quite sure that this is not a driver issues but a bug of Yosemite which Apple has to fix. Therefore I recommend you to revert to Mavericks until Apple manages to fix the problem. @tluck: I don't know which driver you are using but this "tx_skbuff" error you reported is definitely not an error message from my driver. By the way there is no version 3.1.3 of my driver. Mieze

That's the point! They live in a paradox! No, not a paradox but a characteristic of a fascist system organized according to the Führerprinzip which means that the word of the Führer is above all written rules. Please see http://en.wikipedia....i/Führerprinzip Mieze

Hello, I was looking for some entry in the console, and I check about the RTL driver. I found this : 17/11/2014 08:59:40,324 com.apple.kextd[20]: Can't open CFBundle for /EFI\CLOVER\kexts\10.10\RealtekRTL8111.kext. 17/11/2014 08:59:40,338 com.apple.kextd[20]: Kext com.insanelymac.RealtekRTL8111 not found for client path request. Is it important ? Provided the driver loads properly, it is a message that can be ignored. Mieze

Trying to install Intel I218-V (0x15a18086) under Yosemite with AppleIntelE1000e.kext (v.3.0.1) and this is my experience so far: 1. AppleIntelE1000e.kext in /S/L/E/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Plugins/, repaired permissions and rebuilt cacheif NETIF_F_TSO=false then Yosemite boots, but there's no Ethernet adapter recognised... 2. AppleIntelE1000e.kext in /S/L/E/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Plugins/, repaired permissions and rebuilt cacheif NETIF_F_TSO=true then Yosemite hangs on this screen: Yes, hnak is right. As TSO is used only for large outbound TCP packets, it doesn't affect adapter recognition or basic functionality like DHCP or DNS at all. You might even be able to browse the web with a broken TSO implementation. Mieze

pandora and myhack don't supply sources to the binaries/kexts they include either, in fact I don't know of any package installers that do really It's not required, but you have to mention that the code was published under the GPL and you'll have to tell the recipient where or how he can get the source. Providing it on request is also ok. But it's definitely not ok to prohibit redistribution of the derived work. That's what I wanted to point out. Things become complicated when you create a bundle of GPL and proprietary software. The GPL's rules don't apply to the proprietary parts of it but with regard to the bundle's license you can't take away rights that the GPL granted to recipients because the GPL does not allow for that as it creates a chain of rights that must not be broken. In practice this means that tonymac is allowed to keep the source of his installer secreted, but he can't prohibit the redistribution of the whole bundle as this would break the chain of rights m...

I'm really sorry, but you are reading it wrong. Why? This so called "claim" isn't about your work, or the source code you used in the driver for OS X, or that of the original developer who wrote the code in the first place, but their own tool. Nothing more. Nothing less. And please. Grow up and get over it. Well, I remember it was you who made false claims about me violating the GPL one and a half years ago and it looks like you haven't understood the GPL yet. I wonder why a person like you is talking such nonsense over and over again? Maybe you have a problem with me? Or is it you who still hasn't managed to grow up? Of course they can do whatever they want with their work but as they included work that was published under the GPL into it, they'll have to publish it under the same conditions and are not allowed to put further restrictions onto it. Even big companies had to learn that the hard way. Mieze

Relying on "unspoken rules" or whatever doesn't sound like a good way to be happy with anything. Our culture is based on unspoken rules. You shouldn't forget that! By the way, in MB's "##### Features-7.0.pdf" file you can find the following sentence: "This tool was created for your personal use and may not be sold or re-distributed without the express written consent of tonymacx86 LLC." It's quite hard to get this in compliance with this term of the GPLv2: "  6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on theProgram), the recipient automatically receives a license from theoriginal licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject tothese terms and conditions.  You may not impose any furtherrestrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties tothis License."  Mieze
