#2351265 No graphics / USB / Audio after wake

Posted by Mieze on 17 January 2017 - 02:47 PM

Since on most laptops the output of the dedicated graphicscard is going into the integrated graphics, which is connected to the display or hdmi and forwards the input, wouldn't this be a problem in macOS, or is it tunneled through the integrated as well on real MBs?Sorry for OT..Device GMUX is a microcontroller which controls an analog switch to multiplex the display outputs from the IGPU and the dedicated GPU to the panel. In order to prevent flickering, GMUX synchronizes both display signals by extending the vertical blanking gap. This procedure is patented by Apple (see link in the Linux driver) so that other manufacturers will probably use a different method to switch GPUs. Provided there is a Linux driver for switching GPUs on your notebook too, you could examine it in order to find out how this task is performed on your machine. Mieze

Thanks. I guess it's the same an all Macbooks then.All MBPro's and the 2013 MacPro have device GMUX, aka GCON on the MacPro, to switch between GPUs. For details how this works, please see the corresponding linux driver where you can find more information: https://git.kernel.o...s/next-20161220 By the way, as GMUX is an I/O-port mapped device, you could make a FakeGMUX kext (just like FakeSMC emulates Apple's SMC) for notebooks with switchable graphics, provided you know how your notebook switches between both GPUs. Mieze  :cat:

@jamiethemorris: Looks like the DHCP sever gets confused when you are switching from Windows to OS X because the operating systems don't know of each other but the DHCP server sees just one client and isn't aware of the switch. Ok, this might be an explanation for the strange behavior. Mieze

Hey, I have the same problem with the same log errors on a GA-Z170MX-Gaming 5 with Killer E2200 (EEE disable) on 10.11.x and 10.12.x.I have to reboot regularly to get Ethernet working.In case you are dual booting Windows and OS X on your machine you might want to shut down the computer and wait a few minutes before you boot again when switching from Windows to OS X. As I have no datasheet, I can't rule out that there are some settings made by the Windows driver which survive a warm boot and cause the trouble under OS X. Mieze

Well, it appears I spoke too soon... I'm still having a problem with the DHCP lease. I'm not sure what the next step is... How do I check if my Hack is sending a DHCP request and if the router is responding to it?Create a packet dump with Wireshark, or switch to a manual configuration. Mieze

 I experience "Fatal interrupt. Reseting chip. ISR=0x200" and "Fatal interrupt. Reseting chip. ISR=0x4200" a few times per day. Network card stops working and requires reboot to be able connect again.I was unable to google any solution for this issue. Do you have any idea how to fix this?Driver downloaded from this url: http://www.insanelym...se2200ethernet/, debug version, 2.2.0. OS Sierra, 10.12.1. Motherboard: GA-Z77-DS3H (rev. 1.1, Atheros AR8161) EEE disabled BIOS settings seems to be correct but maybe I missed something?Today I had 2 such network driver issues. I was streaming movie via samba to tv box and 2 times connection was dropped.Log file attached. I've checked your log file but I neither have any idea what happened nor am I able to reproduce the issue. I have two machines with Atheros NICs working 100% stable, one of them is my primary development system, the other one a server with 24/7 uptime but I remember user coolspot18 reported the same issue more...

#2332661 New Driver for Realtek RTL8111

Posted by Mieze on 11 December 2016 - 08:56 PM

Now my question is, can i build one with only support for my RTL8169E-VL/8111E-VL Ethernet and RTL8188CU Wireless, i'm happy with the current one which its compressed size is 135 Kb, but it will be a great pleasure for me if i can decrease its size with Xcode before generating its FFS file!In theory it's possible but extremely laborious as you would have to remove a lot of code and the worst thing of all is that this procedure would have to be redone after every update which is nothing I do recommend. Mieze

Posted by Mieze on 25 November 2016 - 06:15 PM

EDIT: One last thing, did anyone ever investigate the order in which all drivers/devices are woken up? Is this deterministic? Would be interesting to know if there's a different order on working setups (e.g. iGPU=Primary or genuine Mac) and non-working setups (Hackintosh with dGPU=Primary).Three things I'd like to mention:Of course it's deterministic and, for logical reasons, the order is dictated by the device hierarchy. Searching for a solution with the AMD GPU as primary is futile because Apple designed it as a master-slave-architecture with the IGPU as master and the AMD GPU as slave, even in the 2013 MacPro where device GCON takes the role of the master. Wakeup with UEFI Video Op ROM probably doesn't work because of the UEFI driver interfering with OS X's driver as the UEFI driver gets called during wakeup. With Legacy Video OP ROM there is no such thing like wakeup support by the BIOS so that the AMD GPU is under full control of OS X's driver during sleep/wake cycles. You migh...

#2321886 New Driver for Realtek RTL8111

Posted by Mieze on 19 November 2016 - 04:15 PM

hallo frau mieze, perhaps the new driver from http://www.realtek.com.tw/ would fix some problems in recent posts? :) your latest version works perfectly on 10.12.1, but maybe some other people need it. ciaoI'm aware of the new linux driver, I checked the code and came to the conclusion that there is nothing in it which would be a benefit for OS X. By the way, the error some users are reporting is a BIOS issue affecting only machines from Acer and Dell and in no way limited to a specific NIC. Atheros NIC's are affcetd too. The problem is that OS X fails to map the NIC's register space into kernel address space and there is nothing I can do about it.baseMap = provider->mapDeviceMemoryWithRegister(kIOPCIConfigBaseAddress0, kIOMapInhibitCache); if (!baseMap) { IOLog("Ethernet [AtherosE2200]: region #0 not an MMIO resource, aborting.\n"); goto done; }Mieze

Thank you Mieze, I double check the BIOS, again. Networking Boot is Disable and Wake on Lan also disable, :(I just saw that my Boot Priority order has two options, the last two in fact: Networking Boot IPV4 and Networking Boot IPV6, but i can not delete them. Well, thank you!I really appreciated your help,Rednaz :)Check the BIOS settings again for hidden entries affecting the NIC. Don't give up until you have check each and every entry. Unlike traditional board manufacturers, desktop and notebook vendors sometimes do strange things in their BIOS. Good luck! Mieze

#2309214 GIGABYTE RX 460 2g "Partial" support in Sierra

Posted by Mieze on 29 October 2016 - 05:36 PM

Reading the posts in this thread I have the strong impression that much of the discussion is based on a misconception. Unlike PCs, Macs aren't modular systems anymore. Well, thinking of a Mac as a fully modular system might have been correct for the traditional MacPros, but any other Mac released in the last 5 years isn't. This also means that the fact that something works on an old Mac Pro has nothing to do with the situation on newer models. Recent Macs are more like iPhones, closed systems in which every component has been carefully coordinated with each other and, of course, this has an impact on hackintoshing as it severely limits our freedom of choice building a machine. As a result, it also becomes clear that much of the research being done is just a futile effort trying to find a fix for a so called "issue" which really isn't a bug at all because it was designed that way by Apple intentionally. For example, the IGPU has always been the primary GPU in any socket 115x bas...

Posted by Mieze on 14 October 2016 - 04:57 PM

Thus I wonder whether the LAN driver AppleIntelE1000e.kext might be the culprit?  To be clear, booting is fine, OSX 10.10.5 works but from time to time it gets very laggy for no apparent reason.Honestly, I don't understand how you relate the problems to IntelMausiEthernet.kext anyway? Mieze

You need a PCIe card because PCI cards are unable to perform DMA operations with 64bit addresses and yes, PCIe cards would be affected of the same issue too. Mieze

I decided to make version 2.2.0d4 the official version 2.2.0 and updated the prebuilt binary in the download section. As always, source code can be found on GitHub. Have fun! Mieze  :cat:
