  2. Marvell Yukon PCI-E 8056 works?

    Hi mac-n-cheeze, no I havent got it to work... I have tried several things to no-avail... I have downloaded a bundle from 'irc.osx86.hu' #radeon topic, and overwritten the extensions folder with the files contained within. But on rebooting, OSX informs me that 'NATIT' was not installed correctly....and cant be used.. Under NEtworks my ethernet card status reads connected but I cannot connect to the net through any browser.. i may try the apple yukon workaround with vendor ID and device details with your added instructions to see what i get... this is really frustrating, because aprt from this and my ATI 2900xt not working, OS X rocks... a definitive 'howto' for the 8056 marvell yukon is needed, me thinks! cheers

  5. Marvell Yukon PCI-E 8056 works?

    Hi rammjet, I followed your howto and unfortunately it has not worked out for me... I followed your instructions to the letter, and upon rebooting I was confronted with the following messages: 'System extension cannot be used ' the system extension /System/library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext' was installed improperly and cannot be used...' This message was followed by others that were identical aprt from the associated extension that had failed.. these were /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamiley.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamiley.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext and /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamiley.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleYukon2.kext I had previously edited 'AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext' adn added the Yukon 88E8056 card ID and vendor details, as seen in another post... Any ideas onwhy this has not worked and I have these error messages would be much appreciated... Thanks Danskiman
  6. MAC OS X86 on DELL D800

    Hi, sorry, but what is this patch you speak of, and how do you rebuild the extensions cache? I tried using: sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache sudo kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache but was informed that no such file or directory existed.. I looked in the finder for this file and it was not there. Under library there was a 'extensions' directory and a 'extensions.mkext'..... So where is the cahe that I need to rebuild??? I have followed the 'appleBCM5701Ethernet.kext -add your own vendor/ID method' Please, please help... Leopard runs great and I just need my net connection to completely remove vista and windoze from my life!!!! danskiman
  7. [HowTo] X1600/X1800 Full Support (Borisbadenov Method)

    Hi Guys, have installed leopard flat image onto my home PC successfully, that has a Nvida Graphics card, and it runs beautifully. Have now tried installing on my work PC (spec below) with The radeon 2900XT card on it. Install went well but after the grey/apple screen, the display just freezes with white artifacts, showing segments of the 'welcome screen' underneath. Is there anyway or known instances where this combination has worked? I really would like to know if this s possible to fix and how? any help, would be much appreciated. rgds Danskimanuk Spec: OS Name Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Ultimate Version 6.0.6000 Build 6000 Other OS Description Not Available OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation System Name DESIGNPC System Manufacturer System manufacturer System Model P5K Premium System Type x64-based PC Processor Intel® Core2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz, 2394 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s) BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. 0102, 04/06/2007 SMBIOS Version 2.4 Boot Device \Device\HarddiskVolume1 Locale United Kingdom Hardware Abstraction Layer Version = "6.0.6000.16407" Total Physical Memory 4,094.31 MB Available Physical Memory 2.79 GB Total Virtual Memory 8.14 GB Available Virtual Memory 6.94 GB Page File Space 4.29 GB Page File C:\pagefile.sys
