  1. Atheros AR9285

    Hey, I'm having the same problem. Did you find a solution?
  2. [Solved] AR9285 (Asus EEE 1008HA) and Snow Leopard

    Using your method, I'm able to connect to B/G networks fine. But I can't get an IP address from N networks. Are you connecting to N networks no problem?
  3. Thank you! I can confirm this works 100%. I only had one Boot Camp entry in my Fusion. If you want to get rid of the second, just follow VMWare's instructions for removing the Boot Camp entries, then Fusion should just only find the one (I've had that problem in the past and this resolved it): ====== Delete the Boot Camp metadata and re-initialize the Boot Camp virtual machine. To delete the metadata and re-initialize the virtual machine: Quit VMware Fusion. In the Finder, browse to ~/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/Virtual Machines . Delete the Boot Camp folder. Browse to ~/Library/Preferences . Delete VMware Fusion folder. Delete the com.vmware.fusion.plist file. Restart the Mac. ======
  4. 650 and 680i chipset thread...

    I used iPC's 10.5.6 final disc on an eVGA 680i SLI board. Worked beautifully. Comes with nForceATA, nForceLAN, and every audio choice you can imagine.
  5. No output devices found on EVGA 680i motherboard

    OSx86Tools misreports the sound card. It's still the same old ALC885. You can still use the steps in this old thread to get your audio working again. Works fine with my iPC install.
  6. Intel 8255X network driver

    I am experiencing the exact same network drop dillema. I'm running iATKOS 1.0r3 (for nVidia chipsets) with an Intel Pro 100/S card. I'm using the AppleIntel8255x kext with my device's ID added and I experience this issue after beginning to torrent: com.apple.syslogd[12]: syslogd(12,0xa01f7fa0) malloc: *** mmap(size=2035712) failed (error code=12) com.apple.syslogd[12]: *** error: can't allocate region com.apple.syslogd[12]: *** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug kernel[0]: Intel82557: chip reset Repeated over and over. syslogd eventually crashes and I'm left with just the Intel chip reset line over and over. Has anyone managed to solve this? Does it have to do solely with Leopard?
  7. Well, I'd like to report a success with my eVGA 680i SLI. Popped in the R3 patched disk, ended up with a "Waiting for root device error", so I moved the SATA drive to channel 1. Rebooted, setup started just fine. Installed just as described here but with NVInject for my 7600GS and RTL8139 drivers for my three dollar NIC from Fry's. Rebooted, system booted correctly without any flags needed. Imported all of my user data from a Time Machine backup. Logged in, video and sound worked. My RTL8139D worked. My only issue now is with Time Machine. After starting a Time Machine backup, within the next hour, my system hangs. Audio continues to function for around a minute after (listening to music using mplayer) and then ceases as well. I've browsed through my logs and can't find a line anywhere indicating why the system is hanging, but I can consistantly recreate the problem with running a Time Machine backup. I have since disabled Time Machine and will be hunting the forum for a solution. I have not upgraded to 10.5.2 but will be doing so tonight with the nForce EFI 93C1 kernel. Thanks for all of the information Mysticus! Screenshot of Working Install and XBench
  8. I had this exact issue. Out of habit, I then moved my SATA HDD to a different channel and the installer booted up fine, allowing me to install on the SATA drive. May I suggest you recommend moving channels around?
  9. RTL 8139 pci loses DHCP

    I have a very strange situation with my network card. I got JAS 10.4.8 running a few weeks back on my eVGA 680i. I was able to get sound working and get my video card functioning properly after a ROM flash, so it was on to the network. Seeing that there was no current way of getting the onboard two gigabit ports to work, I resorted to installing a Realtek RTL8139. OS X picked it up immediately and it worked. I cheered and immediately began to download files. Within five minutes my connection had suddenly died. I checked the NIC, checked my DNS and DHCP server. All was well. So, I tried disabling DHCP and reenabling. The card WOULD NOT reassign itself an IP address and ended up with a 169 address. I opened up terminal and ifconfig'd down/up. The card began to function properly again, but in promptly five minutes of downloading files it died. So, I went ahead and tried one more time, but this time I let the computer run overnight, endlessly pinging my DHCP and DNS servers. The card was still working in the morning! I booted Windows just to make sure the card is even working right, and I cannot recreate this issue in WinXP. I've tried searching the forum and I cannot find an issue simular to me. I did make sure that the proper ktexts include my vendor and device ID. I even tried the driver from Realtek's site (albeit for 10.2) and that didn't make a difference. I've read that this card works fine with the JAS I used, so is it an issue with my chipset then? Thanks in advance for the help!
