lspci was working before, but lately I get this error: "lspci: Cannot find any working access method"

 

What could be the possible reason for this?

I've got the same problem, and the same question.

 

Anyone have an answer?

 

Me:

Dell Inspiron 1720 - Vanilla 10.6.4

GMA 965 X3100 (WORKING @ 1440x900x32 Res)

4GB Ram

Sigmatel 9205 Sound - NOT working

everything else = peachy

I figured it out. There is no 64 bit version of this yet. That is why it doesn't want to load the kext for me.If i boot into 32 bit mode, it works.

Thanks for the link...

However when i try to load the kernel extension after placing it in the /System/Library/extensions,

 

It's showing the following message.

mac3:Extensions root# kextload lspcidrv.kext/

/System/Library/Extensions/lspcidrv.kext failed to load - (libkern/kext) dependency resolution failure; check the system/kernel logs for errors or try kextutil(8).

 

Could you please help me with this.

 

1. The system details are:

 

mac3:Extensions root# uname -a

Darwin mac3 10.4.0 Darwin Kernel Version 10.4.0: Fri Apr 23 18:27:12 PDT 2010; root:xnu-1504.7.4~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64

 

 

 

2. the plist content is shown below.

 

mac3:Extensions root# vi lspcidrv.kext/Contents/Info.plist

ash-3.2# kextutil -tv /System/Library/Extensions/PCILib.kext

/System/Library/Extensions/PCILib.kext has problems:

Warnings:

Executable does not contain code for architecture:

x86_64

Personality has no CFBundleIdentifier; the kext's identifier will be inserted when sending to the IOCatalogue:

PCILib_user_client

 

Dependency Resolution Failures:

64-bit kexts must use com.apple.kpi.* libraries, not com.apple.kernel* libraries.

Well, then I am at a loss. If I boot into 64 bit, it gives this error, if I boot into 32 bit, it works. Strange.

 

I don't know what else to say. The evotools build of LSPCI works fine for me in 64-bit kernel and drivers mode.
