  1. sorry that i haven't seen you got an ASUS mobo. If you are using ASUS mobo, you don't even need trying <key>PCIRootUID</key> <string>0</string> and I said earlier "all because that I am using a gigabyte mb.", this PCI root uid fix is mainly for GigaByte mobos. If you are using a different model other than mine, i don't know how to solve your problem. And a further hint: my onboard LAN chip is not working/recognized 100% of time, after a sleep or shutdown, it get unrecognized by the system, some times of reboot will get it seen by system, its all about chances. I believe it(the onboard lan chip) is getting older and older to reaching its end of life.
  2. I am using this dsdt.aml , maybe you could have a try too DSDT.aml.zip
  3. Problem solved by adding <key>PCIRootUID</key> <string>0</string> in com.apple.Boot.plist all because that I am using a gigabyte mb. thanks all for helping~
  4. Thanks, I will try this. But i don't know why the onboard RTL8111C is not recognized. It was working well without patch in 10.6.X. Do you know that dsdt that I was using in 10.6.X is incompatible with OSX 10.7 or newer Chameleon? My dsdt was one that decompiled from bios firmware to source file, manually fixed and recompiled from source. I checked many places just got no answer about dsdt compatibility.
  5. Dear all, I got this when I was trying to login Mac App Store "Your device or computer could not be verified. Contact support for assistance." I know that add EthernetBuiltIn/Yes to com.apple.Boot.plist and delete/re-add interfaces in Network.prefPane should fix the problem. But not with any luck, I still can't login. Here the situation is, in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist I got only one interface, the WIFI card which is a mini PCI-E unloaded from a MBP, it's driver is the stock unchanged Apple "AirPort_AthrFusion21" in Lion GM vanilla installation. In this plist file, I can see that the OS treat the WIFI card as BuiltIn already. I don't know why this still can't get me logged in. Another tip, I can't sign in to mac app store since my upgrade to 10.6.8, it seems to be so. And before my failed login and after 10.6.8 upgrade, my old wifi card (a DWA 552, not the current one unloaded from MBP) was broken, that means my current Ethernet/Wifi MAC address is different from my last success login with MAS, I suspect that Apple stores users' ethernet MAC address? And also, I have a mac mini, I used my MAS account on that a bit too. Don't know if there is anything on this. Appreciated for any help and hints
  6. its because there is no 64bit Atheros drivers for snow leopard, so we could only get this working in 32bit mode. let's hope apple or atheros will update this soon

    System time always delayed/slowed

    Thanks very much~~ I will try to find some solution BTW, do you have any suggestion which kernel I could choose? seems there isn't other SSE2 kernels around~

    System time always delayed/slowed

    I have kicked off the reason: BIOS battery run out. The hardware clock time is accurate because after leaving leopard, I checked the system time in bios it is healthy, not slow. So maybe the problem is in AppleSMBIOS or voodoo kernel. Could anybody give me some hints? Thanks so much
  9. Dear All, Maybe this is a problem which had been discussed and maybe this is a just minor trivial, however, I can't find a solution very quickly by searching thousands of hundreds topics/replies for this. My 10.5.6 runs very smoothly except for my system time is always slowed after a period of use, almost 10 minutes later than the real time after 2-3 hours of using. If you know the solution or even a keyword to help me get pass this problem, please just give me a quick reply, i would be appreciated very much! Thanks in advance~~ Harry

    I am still wondering if there is a success 5751(1677 devid) with non-all-zero MAC solution. Thanks in advance ~~
  11. guys, thanks for your warm words! and probably this thing won't be ready in two weeks, maybe even longer, so when its ready, i will give a clear call. anyway, your love is my passion on doing this . also i will continue calling for developers who could give me a hand, thats the true intension of my releasing the source, though of little usefulness at present.
  12. http://code.google.com/p/kmbge/ dear all, the source code has been updated, with skeleton of enable/disable series functions, bge_reset() function, and also some chip identification codes. next step we have to do the actually initializing for memory and other resource, then do some actual tx and rx works. god bless us. cheers, harry
  13. dear all, i had tried to develop a bcm57xx ethernet driver almost 18 months ago, then failed with another attractive task get my interests away. now leopard is here, and i got almost everything working except this bcm57xx. currently, i can even get this chip working very well, with just one exception: its mac address is 00:00:00:00:00:00. so some routers refuse to bring service to such freak NIC. now my effort is put, during last 3 days, i finished what i had already done 1.5 year ago: initialize the chip and get the mac address of the NIC. then there are still a lot of tasks awaiting. i am making this effort an open source project. i wish if you have something want to share with us, glad to see your help. by the way, i am a nokia s60 platform developer in china, and it sounds like a mental doctor is curing a pregnant woman... actually, there is no one else. and my best ability is "guessing". from bsd's driver source and old bcm440x's kernel extension source code, i am guessing out a whole new bcm 57xx source from almost scratch. then lets get on the way. http://code.google.com/p/kmbge/

    hi all, i got my 5751/5752m (dev1677) working in leopard now, but with only 00:00:00:00:00:00 mac, and to low-life, your method is very very interesting, and insightful but i found a solution which does not require so lightning fast typing, thats, after the kext loaded, just type this in console sudo ifconfig en0 or any ip address you like, then this command has the same effect as the system preference does. hope this helps, and hope we all could find a solution to over come that 00*6 problem.

    Leopard on SSE2 Howto here!

    frankly, i forgot one thing, that is "GeForce.kext" is not needed to modify, cause in its info.plist, there is... 0x????10de&0x0000ffff means, no matter which card you are running, the model is ignored, as long as its a NVIDIA card. and actually i only modified NVDAResman and NVDANV40Hal, then it works great hope this helps
