    Marvell Yukon 88EE8036

    FWIW, if anyone else has this same card - I was able to get it recognized by using the 8053 kext and changing the hardware ID.

    Broadcom bcm43xx wireless driver [beta]

    Thanks! That's exactly what I needed! Now, off to try and figure out how to get some sound.

    Broadcom bcm43xx wireless driver [beta]

    It looks like that's exactly what's happening. Digging around, I found in the Network Utility the Info section. There, for interface en0, it lists Vendor as "Apple", model as "Wireless Network Adapter". I'm still trying to get my Yukon 8036 adapter working, but until then, what do I need to do to get the broadcom adapter recognized / configured as an airport card, rather than as en0 ?

    Also, FWIW, I checked in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist. and show en0 and fw0 interfaces, but nothing for wireless.

    Broadcom bcm43xx wireless driver [beta]

    I have a 4318, but after running the script I'm still not seeing anything that indicates the wireless card is enabled. One odd bit -- before running the script, 'Built in Ethernet' in the network panel was dithered out. After running the script, it is available and I can set configuration options for it. I plugged into a wired network w/ dhcp, but it didn't seem to detect it. Is is possible that, since I don't have a driver yet for my wired ethernet, it is looking at the first ethernet adapter it finds (the wireless, in this case) and assuming it's the 'built in ethernet'? How could I correct this?

    Marvell Yukon 88EE8036

    My laptop shows, under windows, the NIC to be a Marvell Yukon 88EE8036. Is there a driver that will work with this adapter? I tried searching for marvell 8036 and 88EE8036, but found no results.
  7. Here's a (blurry) screenshot of where my laptop freezes up on first boot after install. Oh, I reinstalled today without the 'titan' drivers, but I'm still stuck at the same place. Obviously, I need a steadier hand with the camera. I'll try and get a better shot later to post, but hopefully there's enough here to get a suggestion or two.
  8. Okay, I found a post where someone else was having a similar issue, and followed the instructions here: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=79143 now the boot process gets exactly one line further, stopping at: localhost configd[55]: No AirPort Driver found.
  9. I am trying to install from this version on my Gateway MX7118 laptop computer. The install went smoothly, up until the end when it tried to reboot. On boot, it loads to the grey Apple screen, and freezes up. I booted using the -v command, and find the last line of text when it stops is: localhost /system/library/coreservices/loginwindow.app/contents/macos/loginwindow: Login window application started At a glance, that doesn't seem to give any indication of a problem. Any idea what the issue could be? Gateway MX7118 Laptop ATI 200m chipset/video AC97 / Conextant audio AMD Athlon 64 3400+ CPU

    Where to begin?

    I see a couple of posts mentioning osx running on an mx7118 laptop, but those were over a year ago and using a 1.47 version. Has anyone else gotten it to work on this or similar hardware? Any suggestions on which version to try? Pitfalls to watch out for? Details from the gateway spec sheet found here: http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Q106/S...w/5963sp3.shtml Mobile AMD Athlon™ 64-bit 3400+ Processor ATI RS480M ATI Radeon® Xpress 200M Graphics AC '97 2.3 Compliant Audio -- Conexant AC-Link Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
