Hi

 

Unfortunately this driver is extremely unstable on my Asus P5B. The mainboard has a second Marvell chip for the other port which works fine after altering the kext. Theoretically the system runs without the 8001 driver. The problem is that the MAC address of the 8001 is used in iTunes for authentication.

 

Is there a way to swap en0 and en2?

 

Regards

Seye

I can't get this to work with my DGE 530T (rev.b ). I'm running the iPC 10.5.6 Final on a Foxconn nForce 590 (C51XEM2AA- 8EKRS2H). In network preferences it shows the card as en0 and connected/green using DHCP except the port and subnet are incorrect (169.254... / 255.255.0.0). I have tried manually setting the IPs and DHCP w/manual ip. With DHCP w/manual ip, the correct subnet does appear after a minute or so, but there is still no apparent connection. The MAC address is correct, i have tried unplugging my computer+router for 30 seconds, etc. no luck, same results.

 

Also in system profile, it says i have no PCI cards detected even though network preferences detects it as it shows the correct MAC address. Im not sure if that has anything to do with anything.

The driver works partially on my system. It's a Marvell Yukon 88E8001/8003/8010 PCI Gigabit ethernet controller. In fact, the driver will work for some times after booting but it will die in a undeterminated time. Anyway, good job for it. :(

 

Edit: If somebody found a way, PM me.

Edit 2: It's an integrated one in my Asus P5NSLI

Hi,

I've just update my laptop ASUS A6VA from 10.5.5 to 10.5.6 and I use Voodoo kernel. It seems that I can't use skge with this kernel without kernel panic.

 

So I keep 10.5.5 for now...

I'm having this very same problem. Everything works great for a while and then all of a sudden nada. No messages (other than the standard ERR: stall etc..) in the logs to indicate what happened. I have the DLink 530-T as a PCI card running on an Asus P5N-32e SLI board. Anyone else have this issue and have some hints as to how best to fix it? I've tried various drivers (currently using the skge-e_U.kext

 

Thanks,

 

Steve

How did you get both working? I can see only one and i'm using the same motherboard...apart from this I have a problem my isp uses pppoe and the account is bound to the mac address. I seem unable to change the mac address on this card?

 

$ ifconfig en0

sudo ifconfig en0 lladdr 11:11:11:11:11:11

 

does not seem to work? any other solutions?

hi!

i have a p5wdg2 ws pro with marvell yukon 8001, ipc 10.5.6

lan working!!!!! with this kext: its skge 0.2.e

http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=fe4eda6...04e75f6e8ebb871

Gleschnapi

I have the same motherboard, and mine would kernel panic when I updated to 10.5.6 and had the skge.kext loaded. It would give me a panic report of a conflict with IONetworkingfamily.kext, etc..

 

After about a weeks worth of troubleshooting, I solved the problem by removing the dsdt.aml I had generated and installed pre-update, and replacing AppleHPET.kext with the 10.5.5 version. (This was solved by accident, as I was replacing the HPET to fix my firewire.)

 

Hope this saves someone some headaches!

I Get the same error! I PMed the author about the kernel panics during bootup (which happens to me 2 out of every 5 times). No response yet. Hopefully he reads this :)

Same thing on... ASUS P5B-V / 10.5.7 Retail

For now I use appleHPET disabler (from this topic).

 

Can anyone expain why it helps?

I've installed iATKOS v7 with kernel 9.70

The skge.0.2e_U crash the system ....

 

This driver works well with 10.5.5

It seems that is a problem with nee IONetworkFamilly (1.6.1 ?)

 

I've attached a photo of what occurs on boot.

hi m.musashi

 

I don't know if you are reading this or even still even visit the forum but the skge.kext for Snow Leopard that's floating around labeled as skge.kext 32-64 bit, i believe was based on your skge-d version not your latest one.

 

I have DGE 530T and the skge for SL and was having issues. It detect the hardware card and had the correct ID but I keep getting errors below.

 

phy write timeout

ERR: chip unsupported

 

So i reverted back to the Leopard version which skge-e and it worked very well in Snow Leopard.

 

If you are reading this and have the time, it would be very helpful if you would kindly create a Snow Leopard 64 bit version or at the very least the source code for your latest skge-e version. I think the problem was the skge 32-64 bit was built on your older skge-d version since that was the only one available at your link on the first page of this thread.

 

Thanks.

 

EDIT: PS. oh another thing, also i found even in Leopard and SL that putting skge.kext in the Extra folder for Chameleon bootloader did not work. It needed to be in /System/Library/Extensions. It would be awesome if this could be resolve.

Same problem here cannot load version 0.2d or 0.2e (intel only or leopard) in 32 bit or 64 bit kernel.

 

just get same error message when try to kextload with proper permissions in terminal. :)

 

Also using DGE-530T and edited info.plist for this cards string. Board is ICH7 Chipset and Gigabyte GA-G31M-E2SL Rev 2.0 with Atheros AR8131 onboard also does not work. :|

 

Any suggestions for Alternative or fix would be appreciated. Whether USB or PCI or PCI-E that would work in 64 bit mode for Snow Leopard.

As you may have read I've stopped working on this driver a long time ago; however I've received many requests for the 2e source code in order to build a x64 version for snow leopard. Well, here it is (SEE FIRST PAGE)!

 

Please consider sending me a working binary of the x64 version so that I can include it in this page (giving of course credit to the builder) for ease of reference and help other users looking for a solution

 

pxavierperez: unfortunately I have no idea how the driver should be modified to be loaded by Chamaleon; if anyone wants to modify the source in that sense please feel free to do it; again consider sending me the updated version to be included in the first page

 

bye everyone

RonnieD: thanks for your work. Added reference to your post in the first page with due credits.

As soon as we start receiving positive feedbacks on your build I'll add the binaries to the first page.

musashi, thanks for sharing the code.

 

RonnieD, thanks for compiling it for us. I tested on my DGE 530T and it worked great. Both on 32bit and 64bit kernels. I didn't have the chance to test the sleep feature since my MB has problem with sleep in SL in the first place.

 

Awesome guys! :(
