#2427780 Solution for Qualcomm Atheros AR816x, AR817x and Killer E220x

Posted by Mieze on 20 May 2017 - 02:51 AM

I'm currently building a new development system with a Killer NIC and already bought an Asrock Z170 Gaming K4. Unfortunately with this board the system won't wakeup from sleep, although I spent the last 10 days trying to fix this issue but all my efforts have been in vain and I can't afford to waste more time. As proper sleep/wake support is crucial for me, I decided to give up on the Asrock board and get another one from a different manufacturer. Now I'm looking for a socket 1151 board which should meet the following requirements:Killer NICProper wakeup from sleep with SierraNot too expensive.Is there anybody out there who could recommend me a mainboard which meets these requirements? Thanks in advance! Mieze  :cat:

Ok, I'll get the log. It's in the console right ?Please see post #1 of this thread for instructions how to retrieve kernel logs. Mieze

#2415767 Driver for Realtek's RTL810x Fast Ethernet Series

Posted by Mieze on 01 May 2017 - 09:31 PM

@jalves: I've checked the driver's code again and found no evidence for a driver bug. I don't have hardware to test myself but as sleep/wake and link change detection are basic functions of a driver which have been thoroughly tested, it's hard to imagine a scenario in which a driver bug causing this behavior wouldn't have been found much earlier. That's why I'm not willing to believe in a driver bug until some user with the same chip confirms this issue. Please check your BIOS settings and make sure that network boot, the UEFI network stack as well as any LAN related power management functions are disabled (in particular if there is any function to put the NIC into a low power state when the cable is disconnected).  Mieze

 Good afternoon Mieze, After leaving my system unattended / in sleep mode for an extended period of time I came back to a kernel panic.  Is there any known issues with Sierra?panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff80004011bd): Kernel trap at 0xffffff7f838951a2, type 14=page fault, registers:CR0: 0x000000008001003b, CR2: 0xffffff81ec657000, CR3: 0x0000000009b62000, CR4: 0x00000000001627e0RAX: 0x0000000000000000, RBX: 0x0000000000000000, RCX: 0xffffff81ec657000, RDX: 0xffffff81c2469088RSP: 0xffffff81ed40be40, RBP: 0xffffff81ed40be50, RSI: 0x0000000000000000, RDI: 0xffffff81a1b97000R8: 0x00000591bb32903c, R9: 0xffffff80296b6d98, R10: 0x0000000000000000, R11: 0xffffff8000a8a810R12: 0x00000591ba46549d, R13: 0x000000008df5a1c1, R14: 0xffffff81a1b97000, R15: 0xffffff81a1b972a0RFL: 0x0000000000010246, RIP: 0xffffff7f838951a2, CS: 0x0000000000000008, SS: 0x0000000000000010Fault CR2: 0xffffff81ec657000, Error code: 0x0000000000000002, Fault CPU: 0x0, PL: 0, VF: 1Backtrace (CPU 0), Fra...

After receiving positive feedback from crashmaster4999 (Thank you for your priceless support!) who ran first tests, I just wanted to give you a chance to participate in testing. Besides jumbo frame support, I also added initial support for the new I219 chips found on Kabylake boards. Source code can be found on GitHub. In case you experience any problems, please report back with kernel logs showing the issue. Good luck! Mieze  :cat: Attached Files  IntelMausiEthernet-V2.3.0d0.zip 73.92KB 97 downloads

I really ignore wich is the difference between development or official.Don't take it personal but I really hate ignorance as it's stealing my time, in particular when users are asking for help without having their homework done. Development versions are only for testing, they still contain bugs which have been resolved in the official release and it's really wasted time to deal with things over and over again. I'm spending my spare time in order to update and support the driver but I might rethink my commitment to the project in case I get tired because of the lack of cooperation from users.  On I217V, Asrock MB: Latest stable version (2.2.0) loses network after some sleep/wakeup cycles. I can recover connectivity by disabling/reenabling the interface in Network Prefs, but doing it 3 times a day hurts. Version 2.1.0d3 doesn't suffer from this, but network goes down and autorecovers under high transfer load. Even after applying the SSDT patch. In the end...

As test results have been quite promising, at least here hasn't been any bug report :) , I decided to push the source code to GitHub and also updated the prebuilt binary in the download section. Have fun! Mieze  :cat:

Hmmm, more bad news for Apple hardware users...it's a pity.Well, at least the fact that Apple machines are affected too is good news because it means that they will have to fix it.  :P Mieze

Wow it's an Apple machine, or Hack? Topic updated btwIt's an original iMac12,1 but a friend of mine who is using a hack with a TP-Link TL-WDN4800 called me this evening because his WLAN stopped working after he installed the update. That's why I tested it on my iMac and was able to confirm the issue. Mieze

Why this packet handling problem (if this is a case) is only in local connection, not in internet traffic?Stupid question! Think about packet roundtrip time in both cases and how a few dozens of microseconds delay caused by PM may affect it.  Problematic computer is Gigabyte PH67A-UD3LR with I3 2130, RTL8100E.No way! The RTL8100E isn't supported by this driver at all. So, I think that power management is not cause of problem - if transmitting data is working.What makes you assume that this rules out a PM issue? Mieze

#2382674 Driver for Realtek's RTL810x Fast Ethernet Series

Posted by Mieze on 11 March 2017 - 08:49 PM

As already announced weeks ago, here is the first development version 2.0.0d3 of the driver. Among several changes I added:Support for Apple's private driver interface in order to resolve stability issues under heavy load and with virtualization software.Support for polled receive mode.Also supports RTL8107E which can be found on a number of new boards/notebooks.Please take into account that this is new driver which is still under development and might have bugs, cause kernel panics, etc so that you should be prepared to recover from these situations. Special thanks to user p569 for testing the driver on his RTL8107!  :thumbsup_anim: Good luck testing!  :cat: Mieze  Attached Files  RealtekRTL8100-V2.0.0d3.zip 612.88KB 54 downloads

#2370174 No graphics / USB / Audio after wake

Posted by Mieze on 19 February 2017 - 11:56 PM

Has anyone tried this on a laptop that has Radeon only, like EliteBooks where HD4000 is not wired on the motherboard?  @Slice. Assuming this works, could it be possible to do this with Clover? Also I already load VBIOS from file with Clover to get QE/CI on HD 7570M. Couldn't I just patch that file so there's no need to flash GPU?Flashing the GPU's VBIOS on a notebook is dangerous and involves the risk of turning your computer into a piece of high-tech scrap. If it's just the VBIOS, patching the VBIOS file which Clover loads should be enough but I doubt that this will solve the problem as notebooks usually have switchable graphics and the switch has to be done properly. Mieze

After updating the source code on GitHub a few days ago, I also updated prebuilt binary in the download section to version 2.2.1, which is optimized for Sierra and also supports polled receive mode. Mieze  :cat:

it is all about kext,10.9 wake up without problem after rebuild kext cache,i have wake up arch linux fail by bad ati video card driver,after update ati video card driver i have wake up arch linux successful.so 10.11 does not have good ati video card driver,10.12.3 does not support my 6670,so Apple has ban pc ati video card for hackintosh.There is no such thing like a ban for certain cards but Apple's driver developers won't waste their time implementing and testing support for additional GPUs which aren't used in Macs. Apple is developing Mac OS for their own hardware, not to make the hackintosh community happy. Mieze

@JorgeMax: I checked your datasheet and it seems that the ITE8728F doesn't support the fading mode but just plain old blicking with differnt frequencies.
