  1. Hello All, I've had some excellent success at last. After having a think and putting my driver debug hat on I thought, what could make the network slow. What could it be that means generating more ping packets makes it go faster.. My build of kvm is from the instructions listed here:- http://d4wiki.goddamm.it/index.php?title=H..._Mac_OSX_on_KVM And my startup script is this:- #!/bin/sh DISK=osx-hda.img OSK=NOIDEA echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward tunctl -t tap0 ifconfig tap0 10.6.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 KVM="/opt/qemu-mac/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 -M mac -no-kvm-irqchip" $KVM -kernel /root/kvm-osx-bootloader/boot \ -m 512 -serial stdio \ -net nic,model=rtl8139 \ -net tap,ifname=tap0,script=no \ -hda $DISK $@ The key change here is -no-kvm-irqchip which forces kvm to do all irq routing in software (makes sense as someone else posted that non-kvm qemu works fine) This gives me a good solid network connection and works with -net user and -net tap I can now get full speed out of my LAN connection without needing to do anything like ping gateway addresses
  2. Hello there, Has anyone had any luck with getting rtl8139 + tap working here? I 'can' get really terrible networking with the usb net device but it is very unreliable.
  3. OSX D430

    Yes. Do this in a terminal window $ sudo su $ cp XXXX.kext /System/Library/Extensions/. $ chown -R root /System/Library/Extensions/XXXX.kext $ chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/XXXX.kext $ rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext Then reboot. If everything goes wrong, then reboot using your install DVD and remove the new XXXX.kext folder you added and the .mkext file then reboot. I find it handy to make a tar containing the entire Extensions folder when I'm planning to mess with kexts.
  4. Install latest Leo4All on Dell Latitude D430

    Yes, everything works except sleep/suspend. I got an Atheros and a Broadcom wireless PCMCIA card working perfectly as airport cards, The integrated Intel 3945 wireless card does not work properly for me and doesnt support WEP (and doesn't integrate with the airport tools). I've been playing more on linux the last few weeks (just got save sleep working in linux yesterday) The D430 really is much more responsive (and has better hardware support) on linux than on windows. Under XP it runs like a dog with all the extra disk access. OSX seems alot smoother too, it has quite alot of cpu horsepower but a slow disk. I would however reccomend 10.5.6 rather than 10.5.8 as get quite a few kernel panics for random things.
  5. CardBus/PCMCIA PC Cards for Leopard

    Very odd, Have you tried it in firefox? If you have no luck, the previous version worked well for me ( the version on mediafire never worked properly for me ) See here: http://www.darkspace.org.uk/drupal/?q=node/92 Regards Ian
  6. OSX D430

    I have finally got my pcmcia working, Still not got sleep/wake from hibernate working yet :-/ Basically I used the second most recent IOPCIFamily and IOPCCardFamily from Chun-nan's Post. More details on my site here along with the kext downloads from my server:- http://www.darkspace.org.uk/drupal/?q=node/92

  8. OSX D430

    Has anyone got PCMCIA or suspend (sleep/wake) working on the D430? I still get a kernel panic on resume :-/ Also, if anyone has a dstd.aml file for they would be willing to upload I'd be extreemly grateful
  9. Hello, I have run out of blank DVDs but have the snow leopard image sitting on my server ready to try. I've had the best success with the ideneb 10.5.8 lite DVD. I have not been able to fix sleep/hibernate and cant get PCMCIA working yet. Make sure you apply the cpus=1 fix. edit /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist put "cpus=1" in the kernel flags so it looks like so:- <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>cpus=1</string>
  10. Broadcom bcm43xx wireless driver [beta]

    Hello All, I have a new Broadcom 4320 I just got from ebay, I'm not sure if I have airport driver, pcmcia or kernel problems. I'm running the XNU 9.8.0 kernel on iDeneb (10.5.8 lite) After adding Chu-nan's PCMCIA/PCCard packages I get this very tantalising output when I insert the card: Sep 12 21:07:40 ian-nortons-latitude-d430 kernel[0]: IOPCCard info: cs: cb_alloc(bus 2): vendor 0x14e4, device 0x4320 Sep 12 21:07:40 ian-nortons-latitude-d430 kernel[0]: IOPCCard info: cs: cb_alloc(bus 2): found 1 functions Sep 12 21:07:40 ian-nortons-latitude-d430 kernel[0]: IOCardBusDevice: binding socket 0 function 0 to card services.

Would this work better with the vanilla kernel? Thanks Ian
  11. CardBus/PCMCIA PC Cards for Leopard

    Hi Enzo, The mediafire link worked for me http://www.mediafire.com/chunnan
  12. Latitude D430 boot + sound problem

    Sounds like you need to disable multi-core processing in the bios, Once you do that you can probably find a patch to fix the kernel. did you ever get PCMCIA working?
  13. Leopard Wont Boot up all the time!

    This sounds like a problem some kernels have with dual core, disable it in the BIOS and it should boot every time
  14. Install latest Leo4All on Dell Latitude D430

    I got my d430 installed fine with iDeneb, On the first boot I get a black screen due to a bug in the graphics card driver, there are a few hacks to fix this. You need to know the partition number of your disk, eg, the first partition is disk0s0 the second is disk0s1 etc. On linux my OSX partition is /dev/sda2 which is the same as disk0s1 The easiest way is to boot from the DVD again instead of the first boot, but at the prompt where it says 'press any key to boot from dvd' press F8 and then type in the following: > rd=disk0s1 -v -f where disk0s1 is your OSX partition, This should boot you into OSX, then open up System Preferences and go to 'Expose/Spaces' and set a hot corner for 'Sleep Display' Once you've done that, then you can boot normally and just move the mouse into that corner to turn the screen back on. Very annoying but as I say, there are better fixes like this one.
  15. Hello All, First let me apologize for seeming to duplicate the 'PC Cards in Leopard Post', The original post is veeery long, lots of questions and answers people have added have gotten lost in the nearly two years the post has been open. So, I thought it would be good for people to post here 'yes it works for me with XYZ card and XYZ chipset'. ( It doesn't work for me with 10.5.8 and the Rioch controller in my Dell D430 but I feel I'm quite close ) Regards Ian
