  1. Belkin N Wireless USB Adaptor F5D8053

    Love the work you've done for the community getting these drivers! Any chance of a driver for the f5D8051? I think it's based on a Marvell Chipset. Thanks for the response!
  2. Hey eddie! Beautiful work here on this release. I know I look like a newbie, but I've been surfing the forums for quite awhile now, and have resolved all of my issues but 1. I'm using your v1 release, and have had tons of success getting stuff to work. Sata/Pata Sound Output, Graphics all are working great. I'm having a problem with my networking preferences pane in system preferences. I can open it, but if I try to make any changes, it freezes and I have to force quit. (The reason it's a problem... I suspect the problem with the Networking Pane is related to the issues I'm having getting my OS X supported Sierra Wireless Aircard 881U to work. I won't bother you with asking for help about it, except to tell you that OSX recognizes the card and the FixNetworkConfig process crashes with a sigbus error.) I'm not sure what's causing the crash, but if you have any ideas, or have already addressed the issue, I would be very grateful if you would point me in the right direction. Muchas gracias por todos! Oh, btw, Marvin's AMD utility refuses to run... says it's not supported on this architecture, but that seems a bit retarded, as it was designed to patch files for this architecture. Thanks!
  3. When I attempt to open the Utility, I get a message "This software not supported on this Architecture" or platform or something like that. Why won't it run?
  4. Networking Pane Crashes

    I've searched for the Networking Pane Freeze solution, thinking perhaps it was a known issue, but have had no luck. After a fresh install, the Networking Pane still crashes, so I've verified that the drivers have nothing to do with it. When the card is plugged in and tries to initialize, FixNetworkConfig (a driver process that seems to be a sub of WWAN.menu) crashes. I am convinced that the crash is caused by the problem with the networking pane. Thank you again for your help, when it comes. And in the absence of said help, I will continue to post here and update everyone on my progress. Following is the first part of the crash report.
  5. Networking Pane Crashes

    After some further investigation, it seems that the root cause is an error in the DOCK.app program. What I get in the console is _DESCDockRegisterExtraClient failed xxxxxxx. The x's are integers. After removing some files that a bad uninstaller left behind and fixing the permissions, I was able to rule out some other things. In /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ there are a couple of files named org.cups.cupsd and org.ntp.nptd (or something like that) and they were also returning errors as follows: SHAuthorizationRight unknown key. So, in the spirit of adventure, I moved those files onto the desktop and rebooted. Alas, the networking card still doesn't work, but it eliminated the errors. The next step, I suppose, is to find out what those files are actually supposed to be doing and figure out if they, too, were left behind by a naughty program. Again, any help and/or insight into these problems would be helpful, as I'm not real familiar with Unix or Mac OS X. I was raised as a Windows Guru, and at the ripe old age of 23, I am forging ahead into unknown territory. Thanks again for your help.
  6. Networking Pane Crashes

    I'm relatively new to the forum, but I've managed to get everything working except... of course, my internet connection. Rather than use NVInject, I used EFI strings and edited the Plist files to get my video card to work, and I'm using MeDevil's latest Nforce Sata/Pata driver, and it seems to work just fine. I've pretty much abandoned trying to get the onboard NIC to work, as I live in the boonies, and my only livable internet option is a WWAN Broadband card through ATT. It's a Sierra Wireless 881U, which is supposed to be natively supported in Leopard. However, I don't think my problem is directly related to the card. If it were, I would be able to get into the networking pane when the card and its drivers were not present on my system and that is not the case. I've disabled the onboard NIC in BIOS, and the problem persists. In case it helps narrow down the problem, when the card is installed and OSX tries to configure it, the FixNetworkConfig (in WWAN.menu) process crashes and I get stuck in a loop where I get the 'OSX is about to configure your XXX' over and over and over again. I've got copies of the crash logs in case anyone needs a gander at them. If anyone has any ideas for me, your help would be greatly appreciated, as Sierra Wireless, ATT, and Apple have not replied to my support requests in over a week. Thanks in advance guys.
  7. ASK For It !

    I would like someone to port a kext for the Creative's X-Fi Cards. Failing this, could someone direct me to a location where I might learn how to write and modify kexts? I'll do it myself, but I can't find anywhere that gives a good tutorial. Gracias
