skgeosx::probe(ethernet)

skgeosx::start(ethernet) <1>

skgeosx: SKGE for OSx86 v0.2d ---- M.Musashi ©2006

skgeosx: VendorID:11ab DeviceID:4320 Rev:13

skgeosx: board is Yukon-Lite

ethernet: family specific matching fails

skgeosx: Ethernet address 00:11:2f:b5:e0:1c

 

that's it? strange

it actually detects the ethernet MAC, but it doesn't enable the interface (you should get a skgeosx: Enabled!

 

have you checked in System Preference / Network that the nic is detected, set everything to automatic?

also check out the System Profiler for info on ethernet

argh :pirate2:

 

i still have problems, and i think it has to do with the kernel :whistle:

 

rig: amd athlon x2 4400+ a8n-sli premium

 

i finally got around to installing 10.4.8 from tubgirl with the final ppf applied. when i first booted up (for the first time), i saw that there were skgeosx messages after using "-v" at the boot prompt. so, i went to system pref. and looked at network, and "Built in ethernet" was there. however, i cannot connect to the internet for some reason.

 

some of you have had success with semthex, others haven't. why is this so?

 

Edit: the problem i keep on getting is when i boot up and check the system preferences, it says it can't get an ip address. btw, im behind a wireless router (linksys wrt54g) and im using a linksys cable modem (befcmu10)

sorry, I am using P4P800 Deluxe. But how do you edit info.plist from skge.kext?

 

the "replacing 0x432011AB with 0x170010B7"

 

do you do it inside the terminal, in the OS, or in Windows? because I tried the command 'edit', but it isn't a command though

 

thanks for your help

Thanks for the work and thanks for a nice, clean and helpful thread.

@LKU1

 

I had the same problem as you seem to be having when I first install this driver. OSx tells you that 'Builtin Ethernet' is active but that it cannot obtain an IP from your ISP .. etc..

 

I simply installed the Driver compiled in 10.4.8 (You can find it in this thread, I forget the name of the uploader but thanks). I then shutdown the PC and also unplugged my cable modem. I waited a few minutes, Plugged in the Cable Modem and booted in to OSX. Ethernet was detected and Ip address obtained. Maybe it will work for you too.

 

Good luck.

cp [-R [-H | -L | -P]] [-f | -i | -n] [-pv] src1 ... srcN directory

 

just put the skge.kext infront of the directory instead. Like this :

 

cp -R skge.kext /System/Library/Extensions "press enter"

 

and then type

 

"reboot" and press enter. Worked for me ;D

Hi,

 

I installed the driver without changing first the string.

 

Of course, i then reboot and nothing happened.

 

I then realized that i needed to change before installing.

 

Is there any problem with that?

 

And what about the string provided? It's the same for every card? Or do i need to find the right one for me myself?

 

Thx,

 

Nuno

m.musashi:

In an attempt to make installation easier I created a package installer from the "skge.kext.02d.zip" archive.

 

Tested installation (since in my actual case I didn't need to edit the plist for it to work) and then started examining the plist file and am now wondering why you didn't add additional profiles to cover the other vendor ID's?

 

You do realize you can do something like the following: (probably better example exists in the Extension dir)

<key>IOKitPersonalities</key>
 <dict>
	 <key>skge1/key>
	 <dict>
		 <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>

		 <string>IOPCIDevice</string>
		 <key>IOResourceMatch</key>
		 <string>IOKit</string>
		 <key>Model</key>

		 <key>RxRingSize</key>
		 <integer>256</integer>
		 <key>TxRingSize</key>
		 <integer>256</integer>
		 <key>Vendor</key>
		 <string>Marvell</string>
		 <key>WaitForLinkUp</key>
		 <integer>6000</integer>
		 <key>WaitToCheckDelay</key>
		 <integer>10000</integer>
	 </dict>
	 <key>skge2/key>

		 <key>WaitForLinkUp</key>
		 <integer>6000</integer>
		 <key>WaitToCheckDelay</key>
		 <integer>10000</integer>
	 </dict>
 </dict>

All vendor ID's are the same because I didn't have the info to add it but you get the idea.

 

Here's the package Marvell.Gigabit.pkg.zip

 

seems like alot of people ignored this part, did anyone try this package? seems alot simpler does it function?

 

will this work with 88E1111?

gilther, you need spaces in between the source and target and between -R and the source

 

mynamecomputer;~root# cp -R /Users/myname/Desktop/skge.kext /System/Library/Extensions

 

is the way to go.

Hi, this is my first time using osx86. Im using the JAS 10.4.8. My mobo is p4p800e-deluxe. Everything is working fine except for the network. under windows, my network card is detected as marvell yukon gigabit. I followed the instructions in the previous page using the skge.kext. Did it a couple of times but still no luck. I even changed this 0x432011AB with this 0x170010B7.

 

Where can I check the specific model of my ethernet card? I am not sure if the one included in my mobo is marvell yukon 8001 or 88E8055 or other model.

 

Where can I also check my vendor and dev id?

 

TIA :unsure:
