Marvell Yukon 8001 - the driver

Wouldn't it be usefull if we could create a list of device id's for the various versions of the chip so that they can all be supported without changeing the Plist. One driver that supports several devices like the ATIX1000 driver?

My deviceid is stated above, musashi could start adding them to the main comments and slowly adding them to the driver itself.

So if you guys have a id different that the shipped one or the ones mentions on the thread post your own (if musashi aproves).

guys, all of a sudden I'm having problems with v0.2b downloading large files from the net - basically it stops after few seconds, the network connection doesn't work anymore (although it still appears as linked and no error message) and I have to restart the driver

now, this started happening after I played around with some other drivers and I wonder if I screwed up something with my system or the driver is actually bugged (note that v1 works fine and downloads huge files at full speed without freezing)

any1 encountered the same error?

 

cyclonefr: nope, don't have other unsupported hardware to work on

I'm perfectly downloading big files no problem with 0.2b musashi. I fact I haven't had a single crash or freeze with this version, already tested for a couple of days non-stop.

Same for me here,

when connection is under heavy use network freezes and then no longer works, until a reboot. !

Are you using 0.2b? I got freezes with the previous kext but not with this one.

yeah 0.2b

 

Try to reproduce the network loss stressing the net traffic. After you get this error, open up a terminal and write: sudo dmesg

 

Paste the output of the networking errors here so musashi can take note.

 

Thanx

I woke up today and my network was not working... it's working again after ifconfig down & ifconfig up. This is the only thing I found in the logs

I just found out that my brother was copying a lot of large files over the LAN from my computer when this happened.

guys,

I'm working on fixing this bug(s)

I'm currently testing a new build, but it's a bit difficult to replicate the error at will

ok, one more bug fixed and this one was HUGE.

amazing it actually worked at all!!

now you can download ver 0.2d

if you guys can stress test it and report any issue, that would be great

 

I'm actually quite surprised that so few of you reported issues (out of hundreds of downloads). Go figure.

Hi!

 

I had to install a new system. Your first release runs well.

I tried the first 0.2 and got probs. I´ll try 0.2d and be back...

 

Thanks for your work!

It was the other way round for me... The first release was the worst and 0.2 was better. So far 0.2b was the best (not a single crash for almost a week) and now I expect 0.2d performing even better.

The new driver seems to work fine, but my logs are getting filled with this after copying files over the network:

najt: it's quite normal, don't worry

previous versions did the same

once I reach a reasonably stable build, I'll put in here a release kext which will not show debug messages such as these

for the moment I'd rather have more messages than less in case there's a crash

Hi m.musashi,

 

sorry for my stupid question but I´m a newbie and don´t know how to install the driver corrcetly because I don´t understand this:

 

cp -R (drag and drop the file and remove the / at the end) /System/Library/Extensions/

 

I have to type in cp -R in the terminal, ok. But what means the rest, especially 'remove the / at the end'???

Can You please tell me what I have to do in single steps...

 

Thanks, and sorry again, but I´m not an experienced programmer :-(

mess:

say you have downloaded in desktop of a user called mess

in that case you should type:

cp -R /Users/mess/Desktop/skge.kext /System/Library/Extensions/

 

no / at the end of skge.kext

-----------------------------------

 

guys, this build seems quite stable

36 hours of almost continuous net usage (tcp and udp) and still running

finger crossed

I usually drag the files i want to copy to the terminal after the cp or mv command to avoid writing those long paths. Yes, I am that lazy :D and it's a nice feature.

I´ve installed the KEXT in my /System/Library/Extensions but no new network card detected. I got an P5WD2 Premium Board.

 

Anything else to do?

asapreta: assuming your board has the 8001 yukon chip, assuming you've checked the devid/vendid and possibly modified the .plist .... then send me the log (see first message on this thread)

Big Thanks for your work, now posting using the Yukon Builtin Ethernet. The problem was the ID, mine is 0x43201148.

 

But when it was started, the other one (intel) stopped to work. But no big deal.
