  1. Ethernet Driver for Marvell 88E1116

    Uhm, if you have sluggish performance with 1 core you have other issues. I am running on one and the machine is still blazing fast. Check your Activity Monitor (/Applications/Utilities/Activity Monitor) and see if your % System cpu use goes rather high when using your hard drive or otherwise. When mine was stuttering with 1 core, this was the problem. It does it with both cores as well, its just you have one free to do stuff while the other gets wasted. Anyways, worth a check.

    That is a kernel panic. Do you think you could turn a core off and see if that fixes it? I have that problem, but disabling a core resolves it. I don't mean it as a permanent solution, more to narrow down the problem.

    I have one disabled in BIOS, and the other is enabled and is the only one with a cable plugged in. Having both active doesn't help. By the way, I just got a kernel panic with only one core enabled when I tried to download something, but that's the first one from that EDIT: My mistake, I had the 2nd core on after a restart, sorry.

    If I have both cores enabled, it will kernel panic almost immediately after trying to download anything.

    Ok, it seems to stop kernel panics if I disable a core in my BIOS, but then the OS is all stuttery. Hrm. EDIT: Stuttering was PATA driver not being used; fixed now, but still using one core due to this networking issue.

    I'm trying to get this working, but I have a strange problem. I have the evga 680i SLI board. I enabled both NICs in BIOS, but when I restart, System Profiler shows en0 and fw0. When I try to go to Network in System Prefs, it just hangs and I have to kill prefs. I tried disabling firewire (which doesn't seem to work) but that didn't fix it. Disabling the NICs and Firewire and it still shows en0 and fw0 and Network pref still hangs. Any ideas? Its been doing this since Leo install, with or without this driver. EDIT: I have resolved this issue. The BrazilMac post-patch renamed my IONetworkingFamily kext and didn't replace it with anything. Naming it back solved the hang and I now have firewire and both network adaptors showing (but ethernet still not working.) EDIT 2: I have it sort of working... I have en0 working with DCHP, en1 requires me manually entering the IP. However, on either connection, it will kernel panic after a bit of use. I have no forcedeth or any other networking drivers installed but this one. I tried unplugging but it didn't help.
  7. ToH Leopard RC2 install problem.

    I know this probably doesn't help, but I have a similar problem on a C2D/680i comp. 1 IDE HD with 1 HFS+ partition, 1 IDE DVD-ROM on same channel. Tiger installed ok, Leo hangs at various points depending on if, for example, DMA is on/off in BIOS. Strange.
  8. No bootloader?

    I have installed JaS 10.4.8. Install went fine, but now when I start without the DVD, I get no system disk. If I start with the disc in and let it just count down, it starts loading the OS off the HD, then eventually kernel panics. I'd like to use the -x option (nVidia chipset/GPU), but how can I do this? If I hit F8 at the countdown, the only startup volume listed is the JaS DVD. For some reason, though, if I just let it count down it boots the machine. Can I tell that boot line to load off the HD instead somehow or somehow get the bootloader on the HD? Thanks.
