AppleVIAATA over 4gb RAM bug solved (at least i believe so)! JMicron and AppleNForceATA at development

568 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So far so good, tried everything to get kp & nothing! I only replaced AppleNForceATA(Debug)

(now i want to make a system with 8gb haha)

 

You are a HERO

Kalyway 10.5.2

Asus AN8-SLI - AppleAC97Audio

4gb Ram

Samsung 500 gb sata (remove AppleSMBIOS.kext on install because of crash, place in Extension after build)

AMD Athlon 64 FX-25 Processor 5700/2.81Ghz

NVIDIA 7600GS 256mb Nvinject 0.2.0 + Geforce.kext

 

Be careful. DEBUG kext print tons of information i would need in case they give KP. Use normal kext (without DEBUG), they are the same.

Am I the only one who still have kernel panic with the AppleNforceATA 64bits ?

 

With maxmem=2816 and AppleNforceATA 32 bits i have no error with rember and all work very good.

Without maxmem and AppleNforceATA 32 bits i have errors and kernel panic with rember.

 

Without maxmem and AppleNforceATA 64 bits no error with rember but 2 times per day when i clic on a file i have a kernel panic.

There's no evidence there you are using AppleNForceATA.kext. Can u attach "ioreg -l > dump.txt" (run that without quoutes in console and attach dump.txt).

I'm still having problems after trying the AppleVIAATA on p1. Anyone have any ideas?

 

This is what happens: my 300GB IDE drive shows up as 128GB in Disk Utility; two other SATA connected drives do not show up at all in Disk Utility; applications crashing; and I still have kernel panics. :)

 

System is a shuttle VIA based SK22G2V2 box, 4GB of ram. 10.4.8. I reverted back to the original AppleVIAATA.kext for now and it is OK, but still have the 4GB bug of course.

 

This is the portion of my ioreg:

 | |   |	 | {
 | |   |	 |   "acpi-path" = "IOACPIPlane:/_SB/PCI0@0/SATA@f0000/CHN1@1"

Is this dump with my modified kext? I'm developing under leopard, the problem might be if tiger doesn't suppor 64 bit addresses. I really don't know wheither tiger is 64 bits compatible. The issue may have something to do with the api i use from the kernel to make 64 bit dma.

 

Make sure your devid is in AppleVIAATA Info.plist (I removed every devid but mine, and i really don't know why i made that stupid thing)

 

by the way, i couldn't download your complete dump.

 

Here is my Attached File dump.txt ( 362.68K ) Number of downloads: 2

 

Take a look at this:

| |   | |   "compatible" = <"pci1462,7350","pci10de,265","pciclass,01018a">
| |   | | }
| |   | |

| |   |   |   "IOClass" = "AppleOnboardPCATARoot"
| |   |   | }
| |   |   |

 

All that stuff means your IDE0 has "device-id" = <65020000> and "vendor-id" = <de100000>, that means your IDE controller pciid is 10de:0265 -> NVidia something. The below stuff shows what kext you are using: AppleOnboardPCATARoot. Why this kext? Well, mac matches your devices pciids with all kext pciids listed in Info.plist (under Contents inside the .kext folder). AppleOnboardPCATA seems to be a kext that matches your pciid for your IDE controller: "IOPCIPrimaryMatch" = "0x005310de 0x00e510de 0x026510de 0x00d$.

 

If you have installed AppleNForceATA.kext correctly, then mac is loading another kext for that device. Either remove AppleOnboardPCATA.kext or remove 0x026510de from IOPCIPrimaryMatch section under AppleOnboardPCATA.kext/Contents/Info.plist. The last one is wich I recommend in case this kext is needed for something else. If this goes wrong, just put back this pciid where it was.

Ah I think that's it. Is there any way to include 10.4 compatibility when you compile the VIA driver? :/ I could test that for the heck of it.

I don't have any 10.4 box. You can install xcode and download the source from svn (it's the same googlecode project where the kexts are hosted). Otherwise, there's nothing i can do (i don't have any more pcs to install tiger on them and do it).

Hi slashack:

 

I compiled your AppleVIAATA source under 10.4.8 with xcode 2.5. It works GREAT. I loaded up a large Logic session with many gigs of samples, and I had no kernel panics. Thank you so much!

:thumbsup_anim: :pirate2:

 

If u have a gmail account, I can register u at darwinata so u can upload that kext, in case there someone out there with the same problem as you. (I believed mine was a special case, i never expected so much people with the same issue)

Hello, where can i get this source? I have same problems, but after 10.5.5 update. This my post. Random kernel panic, when i work with large amount of data.

 

this is my post:

http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=134477

 

Some good peoples give me a link with modified AppleVIAATA and Jmicron.kext, but my system can not boot with this kexts. I think i need hard mind work, and source code, for getting worked kext`s...

 

Big thanks for answer..

I've read your post, you need to add your devid to AppleVIAATA.kext. That's why u get an "still waiting for root device" Your KP's logs shows that u have the same problem as me. It's because you are using a 32 bit addressing scheme in your IDE controller kext. Just add your devid

Great thanks for fast feedback, slashack ! :blink: I wheel try this.. Right now. With this problem, installation of Update 10.5.5 - is impossible for me..

Try testing your memory with rember. (all your memory). And while testing, try to open files, create folders, etc in your IDE hdd. I believe this problem happens in every 10.5.X version.

Hi slashack,

 

I've attached a .zip of all of the darwin-ata drivers compiled with xcode 2.5 under 10.4.8. I have only tested the AppleVIAATA on my 10.4.8 system. The others all compiled fine, fwiw.

Sorry.. But i`m have stupid problems now:

 

1. AppleVIAATA.kextr is not loaded in my extension list (but exist in extensions folder), only the JMicron.kext loaded

 

and

2. I can`t found Device ID for JMicron controller.

I just found this:

Sorry.. But i`m have stupid problems now:

 

1. AppleVIAATA.kextr is not loaded in my extension list (but exist in extensions folder), only the JMicron.kext loaded

 

and

2. I can`t found Device ID for JMicron controller.

I just found this:

===========================

 

I`m not see matches for "Device ID" string, and not see loaded AppleVIAATA in my system, i don`t know what i can do next.

?

 

U only need one of these kexts, not both.

 

Your devid is 197b:2363 => 0x2363197b.

 

"IOPCIPrimaryMatch" = "0x2368197b 0x2360197b&0xfff0ffff" has your devid. The term 0x2360197b&0xfff0ffff means any 0x236X197b where X can be replaced for any hex number (0-F). This string matches your devid.

 

According to this, u have JMicronATA.kext loaded. Wheres the problem? Is this kext the one i've modified? Or is it another? When u boot with my kext, do u have any problem? does it boot? if it does'n, boot with -v -f debug=0x100 and if there are any errors, take a photo of your screen and reply with that image, or whatever your problem is.

 

I'm running 10.5.5 with modified AppleVIAATA.kext, and recently fixed a 10.5.5 system with JMicronATA.kext (KP's during IDE DVD operations).

slashack, i install your JMicronATA.kext (now only on 10.5.2 system, sorry,but i`m not have enough time - i must go work), but have a strange issue:

 

System load - ok. All drives detected and work. (i don`t do all memory tests) - but, i can`t see in "System Profile" JMicronATA.kext loaded or not. It not shown. I think this a not a big problem, because, without loaded JMicronATA my system can`t work.

 

(i`m don`t remember now, but i do kext listing with some command-line tools (kextload or something like this) and it show - JMicronATA.kext is not loaded.)

 

When i come to home after work - i try install 10.5.5 update and install your JM*.kext again.

I don`t understand, why i can`t see - loaded it or not. :)

 

Thanks..

The command is kextstat. Try with that. if not, try with a dump (ioreg -l > dump.txt). With a dump we can find why it's not working.
