I do not think it is because when I type my password and hit enter it says invaild directory when all i typed after opening the terminal was:

 

sudo -s password <ENTER>

MYPASSWORD <ENTER>

invaild directory....

Got past the password part and put in the required fields but I am still not getting an internet connection, possibly did something wrong? Not really big on Unix? (if thats that terminal is)

As much as I hate to ask for help...(usually the answer is staring at me in the face)...I can't get this driver to work with my DGE-530T.

 

I've followed both sets of instructions in this entire thread:

 

1.) I edited the info.plist with the DGE-530T deviceID (0x4C001186)

2.) Opened the terminal and typed...

3.) sudo -s (password)

4.) cp -R (location of skge.kext to be copied) /System/Library/Extensions/

5.) rm -R /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache

6.) rm -R /System/Library/Extensions.mkext

 

I rebooted and nothing. I checked the Network area. It's blank.

 

The second set of instructions:

1.) Copy skge.kext in to the /System/Library/Extensions/

2.) Open Terminal

3.) Entered these command lines:

4.) sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/skge.kext

5.) sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/skge.kext

6.) sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext

7.) sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache

 

Still nothing.

 

Am I missing something?

 

 

EDIT: Like I mentioned above ...I figured it out.

 

I was doing everything perfectly correct, BUT my device ID was different than the one in this thread.

 

To anyone trying to use a DGE-530T, check the card itself. There should be a revision number written on the top of the card as "REV-B1" (which is mine). That letter and number should replace the ones in this thread's device ID.

Example: 0x4C001186 changed to 0x4B011186.

 

It's nice to have the network up and running. All thanks to m.musashi!

I can get this working, however I also get A TON of "family specific matching fails" messages on virtually everything there is to get it on...

 

P0P4, ethernet, IDE0, USB1, USB2, USB3, USB4, EUSB, SBRG, P0P1, aci8086... then the nVidial HAL loads and I get a bunch more family specific matching failures.

 

However, the system does boot normally and everything seems to work... so, is this normal and if so, is there any way to disable it?

It does work for me on the 10.4.8 Semthex kernel, though I did download the source and recompile, so that may be the trick to get it working. :compress:

eidola, how do you compile the source?

 

as soon as jas releases a patch for AMD SSE3, i will reinstall 10.4.8 and test this driver if recompiling doesn't work for me

Download and install XCode from Apple's website:

http://developer.apple.com/tools/xcode/

 

Download the source code from the first post on this thread, extract it and then open "skge.xcodeproj" to load the project.

 

When you run XCode for the first time just accept all the default values when it asks about configuration inforation.

 

Once the project is loaded change the dropdown at the top to "Release" from "Debug" then click the Build button.

 

I get two warnings about a struct being defined but never used, since they are warnings and not errors it does not seem to affect the extension in any way.

 

Once compiled you will find your new kernel extension at ./build/Release/skge.kext, copy that into the /System/Library/Extensions folder, set permissions, delete the cache files and reboot.

 

This worked for me, though the compiled version also worked for me on 10.4.8 with Semthex kernel... you may need to set your Vendor and Device ID's to make it work with your particular card. I know I did for my 3Com on an Asus P4P800.

I have a DFI Lanparty NF4 with Marvell Yukon 8001 and now running semthex last kernel, works like charm with this driver :D

 

All I did was just installed a older version of IONetworkFamily.kext, like in this thread (http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=33261&hl=marvell)

 

I don't know if this was relly needed, but I heard you guys complining about this driver not working under semthex kernel, so maby this could be a solution :)
