  1. I have a weird problem with my Leopard installation. Seems like it only recognizes one NIC at a time. I have two Realtek RTL8169 PCI cards, of which one is perfectly recognized OOB and working and the second one is just not recognizes. lspci command lists them both but only en0 is listed in Network prefs. Is there anything I should edit or add to the configuration? Thanks a lot! Eugene
  2. First of all, sleep and reboot never worked for me, I also had to disable one core in BIOS, but what's more annoying is that when I close the lid, it just freezes the system. Power and wifi LEDs are on, fans are spinning, when I open the lid, I still see my screen but it doesn't respond to keyboard and mouse. Any suggestion? HP nw9440, kalyway 10.5.1, efi.
  3. EFI version

    Hi Ninetto, OK, here's what I get: +-o Root <class IORegistryEntry, retain 12> +-o / <class IOPlatformExpertDevice, registered, matched, active, busy 0, re$ +-o efi <class IOService, !registered, !matched, active, busy 0, retain 7> | | { | | "firmware-revision" = <01000010> | | "bootloader-build" = <"ToH","bootlo"> | | "name" = <"efi"> | | "firmware-abi" = <"EFI32"> | | "firmware-vendor" = <4100700070006c0065000000> | | } | | Now how do I know what version is it?
  4. EFI version

    I'm wondering if it's possible to check the EFI version installed? I know I have EFI because I can boot from GUID partition but I'm not sure which version I'm running. Here's my story: I got more or less stable system finally, NVinject works fine but seems to have some problems with dual monitor and sleep. So I tried gfx strings in boot.plist but got blue screen. Someone recommended upgrading EFI to v8 but maybe I already have one? How can I check it?
  5. Overheating in OSx86?

    My temp went down significantly after I disabled one core in the BIOS (I have cpus=1 in my Boot.plist anyway). Now my About Mac shows Processor 2.17HGz Intel Core 2 SOLO but I don't really care. It also seems to run little faster. Can't explain it.
  6. I have exactly the same issue. It was working for a short period of time and them just stopped working all of a sudden. I still have no idea what went wrong. Does anyone know how to fix it?
  7. I'm wondering if it's possible to make my built-in card reader work under leo 10.5.1. I actually don't even know what kind of device is it - must be IDE, or maybe it's sitting on the USB bus - I'm not sure. Any ideas? Thanks a lot, JD
  8. Hi Chun-Nan, One more little thing - my machine just refuses to boot if I enable Firewire ports in BIOS. When I boot with -v option, it freeses after those lines printed: IOPCCard info: Intel PCIC probe: TI XX12 rev 00 AppleIntelPIIXPATA: Secondary PCI IDE channel is disabled If I disable 1394, it boots up and works fine. Not a big deal for me but just in case
  9. Looks good on my HP nw9440, leo 10.5.1 kalyway. I was able to change power settings for battery. However my laptop still doesn't go sleep when I select Sleep from the Apple menu. Screen goes black but fans and leds are on. If I close the lid, it's even worse - all fans and leds are on, when I reopen the lid, the screen goes back on but the system is frozen and I have to power it off. Reboot also doesn't work.
  10. Well, looks like sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I will run more tests tonight.
  11. Hi Chin-Nan, One little thing though - sometimes when I insert the card, it reads vendor and device ids incorrectly. Here's what System Profiler shows: pci14e4,4320: Function: Network Controller Vendor: Unknown Type: CardBus Vendor ID: 5348 Device ID: 17184
  12. Right now I'm using rev2. Something tells me that rev1 would also work with correct plist settings
  13. OMG, I can't believe how stupid I am!!! My sysctl -b hw.model output is 'Mac Pro' but Info.plist didn't have the section with this name! So I created one, copied the memory and io ranges from my windows device manager and now I have perfectly working CardBus controller and Airport card!!! Chun-Nan, kizwan, thank you so much, you guys rock!!!
  14. I have another wifi card in the office, will try it tomorrow. The one that crashes is 32-bit too though, I found the spec sheet on the Linksys website and it says it's 32-bit cardbus interface. In any case, I appreciate your help so much!
  15. Hmm, not that I can think of. My IOPCIFamily.kext is the original one from KALYWAY CD, I use vanilla kernel and most kexts are from original cd too. One thing that might interfere with the IOPCCard is my modified PowerManagement.bundle. I'll try to disable it and will post my results here.
