  1. Marvell Yukon 8001 - the driver

    The attached skge.kext works for me on 10.7 in arch=i386 installed in /S/L/E. skge.kext_02g_release.zip = Release build 10.6 & 10.7, arch = i386 & x86_64. skge.kext_02g_debug.zip = Debug build 10.6 & 10.7, arch = i386 & x86_64. The instructions are the same as the first post for installation. I expect it to work for 10.6 and 10.7 both i386 and x86_64. 10.5 will NOT work. Alterations to allow loading with 10.7 (assuming 10.6 also). I added the ID for the Belkin 5005 card I have. I altered the source to remove the gotos and compiled it with Xcode 4.1 against the 10.6 SDK. Changes to the Info.plist to allow loading on 10.7 otherwise I got: 11/08/11 2:27:31.000 AM kernel: kxld[com.musashi.skge]: ___stack_chk_fail 11/08/11 2:27:31.000 AM kernel: kxld[com.musashi.skge]: ___stack_chk_guard The main alterations are com.apple.kpi.* <key>OSBundleLibraries</key> <dict> <key>com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily</key> <string>1.0.0b1</string> <key>com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily</key> <string>1.0.0b1</string> <key>com.apple.kpi.bsd</key> <string>8.0.0b1</string> <key>com.apple.kpi.iokit</key> <string>8.0.0b1</string> <key>com.apple.kpi.libkern</key> <string>8.0.0b1</string> </dict> skge_02g_source.zip skge.kext_02g_release.zip skge.kext_02g_debug.zip
  2. Marvell Yukon 8001 - the driver

    Hi All, I have recompiled the skge driver for Leopard (10.5.0). If you just want the driver grab leo_skge.zip below. To get this driver to work for me initially I needed to manually set my IP address (and Subnet, Router). After initially setting to manual the network connection worked. Then I could swap back to DHCP for normal use. This must create a file or some setting somewhere that I was missing. I am not supporting this. I just provided this so others with leopard do not need to install the developer tools. [EDIT] I have had the driver cause kernel panics occasionally on startup. This seems to go away after you reboot from that panic. It does not seem to effect the card once the system is loaded. I am looking into it. If anyone sees a problem in the code please fix it and repost the result or inform m.musashi (if she/he is still interested...) and myself. Thanks [/EDIT] Changes: The only change to the source is that it has had the Belkin ID (500511AB) added. The source, skge_02d_leo.zip has the driver both built as debug and as release for if you are having problems and know what you are doing. Built against: $ uname -a Darwin zeus.local 9.0.0 Darwin Kernel Version 9.0.0: Tue Oct 9 21:35:55 PDT 2007; root:xnu-1228~1/RELEASE_I386 i386 Credit: This is the driver by m.musashi From: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?s=&...st&p=100823 Good luck all. leo_skge.zip skge_02d_leo.zip
  3. Hi changs, I had a similar problem on my dual Marvell 88E8056 MB, the fix for me was a little annoying. I have to have both plugged in. It does not matter if the second is actually doing anything but it need an active link. Along the same lines, I *must* have the first card plugged in. Unplugging and plugging also can make the link come up as active in the System Preferences. Good Luck.
