my usb problem is solved, except that when I plug my iPod i have to restart to use it but it doesn't matter.

the only big problem is my ethernet drop, it drops more often when i watch videos on youtube, and this makes me crazy

 

this is the error messages in my console :

5/24/08 7:00:11 PM kernel exceed tx queue limit! tx_cur is 54182, dirty_tx is 54058, queue len is 124

Deal friends,

 

I used this patch with 4Dual-VSTA. Only sound does not worked (not see audio chip).

Please help me.

My spec: Mainboard - 4Dual-VSTA

PCI express: Asus ATI 3650 Silent (256 MB) patch with netkas

I have QE/CI. Only iMovie does not work.

Well, I finally got my internet working without drop-outs, but I had to get a USB to ethernet adapter, costing me about $30. Have a look here for compatible adapters, plus the relevant kexts to go with them.

 

Everything seems to be working now, and I've updated to the latest 10.5.3 using the update found at the Bay.

The »10.5.3 Combo Update by Mysticus« works perfect. My system starts fast and there are no more problems with my GeForce 7600 GT (there is a new NVInject inside the package). :)
Yup, I updated safely using the same method.

 

Are you using ViaRhine for your network card? How is it holding up? I was still getting disconnects when using heavy internet traffic with the built in Via Rhine on the VSTA-DUAL, which is why I went with a USB-ethernet adapter which is working great.

hmmm

it would be great if you could tell me which options did you select during the installation of the combo update by mysticus

I followed the thread to the letter and stuck with 9.2 sleep kernel, as I know that works great.

 

Only thing you will have to do is copy back the ViaRhine kext, and choose your relevant video card.

what is the model of your usb-ethernet adapter mark_in_2k?
I got a good deal on an official Apple USB Ethernet adapter which is supposed to be for the Mac Book Air, but works without installing any kexts on my system.

 

There are a few more out there. Take a look at this site which tells you how to get an adapter working. It's really easy.

thanks

I have seen this site already, but it says that products can change of chipset with the same name too.

and as the asrock mobos seem to be a bit special, i wanted to be sure before to spend 30€ (yes it's a bad deal but apple think that 1$=1€).

and i prefer spend 30€ than 10 hours trying to get my internet working ^

To theStevo,

 

Do you plan to create the patch for JaS.OSx86.10.5.4.Client.Server.Intel.SSE2.SSE3?

 

OR you could tell me to select options of this version (JaS.OSx86.10.5.4.) for 4DualVSTA mainboard.

 

Thank you for your hard works.

Well, I don't know yet. I've talked to JaS and he says that it will be included in the first PPF. However, I was told that all installers that use Dense's slipstream would contain it now since I gave the kext to him and they do not. I think I'll let JaS release his PPF and if it isn't there I might do something. Let me know if enough of you are stuck.

 

I have largely moved beyond this board, and I recommend that some of you look to move to something in an Intel chipset too. Snow Leopard requires 64bit drivers. AppleVIAATA is not 64bit, but we do have the source. I likely don't have the skills necessary to modify the source for 64bit, and thus this board will not run Snow Leopard or beyond. I'd love to see it be able to, it is capable (theoretically) but I don't think I'll be the one to bring that support.

Iam not very good in written english, so be pleased.

 

I think i solved the dropping ethernet problem.

 

I did not know how to change these settings in osx in terminal so i used the Programm MacPilot.

You install it and choose Network - Advanced.

Use the Network Preset (download+browse)

 

 

It changes the following options:

 
  1. net.inet.tcp.delayed_ack Value=0 Delay ACK to try and piggyback it onto a data packet. 0=disabled; 1=enabled; 2=more compatible (TH_PUSH); 3=streaming detection;

  2. net.inet.tcp.recvspace Value=3072 Maximum TCP receive window

  3. net.inet.tcp.sendspace Value=2048 Maximum TCP send window

Then apply settings.

 

WITH THESE SETTINGS IAM UPLOADING WITH 120kb/s

AND DOWNLOADING WITH 1MB/S SINCE 24HOURS.

 

I will report if the connection droppes again. (Hopefully not)

 

 

Last but not least, thanks theStevo! u did great work!

Acknowledged. Thank you. I can't confirm yet, I don't have an install on the ASRock board right now. Anybody else, feel free to confirm.

I still don´t have any problems. My connection never dropped after this modification.

 

Is there someone who knows another way to change these values?

This would be very interesting for me.

 

Thanks,

Dario

theStevo, Thanks very much for all your work!

 

I applied your patch to 10.5.2, and verified MD5.

 

My system is 775Dual-VISTA, 5600+, all IDE, 2GB RAM.

 

Everything works except ethernet. Got no network. Error message: cable unplugged. Any idea?

 

BTW, during install, I only selected your package, video driver and EFI (GUID). Did NOT select Vanilla kernel.

 

Thanks again.

i don't have the time to test the solution with macpilot, but as far as i know, these are the command you have to type in terminal to do the same thing as macpilot does :

sudo sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.delayed_ack=0

sudo sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.recvspace=3072

sudo sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.sendspace=2048

 

BUT plz, anyone can confirm it? because i found this info on unknown site, and i haven't tested it yet. (i have DD problem)
