I've been trying all sorts of different kexts to get my GA311 RTL8169 card working but I've had 0 success so far.

 

the device and vendor ids are set correctly and the system loads up the kexts but no ethernet device is created.

 

~# kextstat | grep -i ionet\\\|rtl

66 2 0x5d787000 0x16000 0x15000 com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily (1.9) <7 6 5 4 3 1>

76 0 0x5d7e5000 0xb000 0xa000 rtl.r1000.nic.ext (1.0.4) <66 14 11 10 5 4 3 1>

~#

 

what sort of things can I do to debug this?

 

any help is appreciated.

Try EFI strings, or you did it

actually the R1000 driver was loading there, but it doesn't support 8169, I gave it a try though.

 

my actual problem is:

 

$ kextstat | grep -i rtl

77 0 0x5dac5000 0x20000 0x1f000 com.apple.driver.AppleRTL8169Ethernet (1.1.4a5) <69 14 5 4 3 1>

 

11-01-04 6:57:42 PM kernel AppleRTL8169Ethernet: IOInterruptEventSource error

 

so I guess I need to keep trying different AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kexts? I've tried a few, but haven't been keeping track of the identifiers.

For a possible solution search google for: AppleRTL8169Ethernet IOInterruptEventSource error

First result is <http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=188012>.

 

1. Backup and delete AppleHPET.kext, AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext and AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient.kext.

 

2. Remove /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext

 

3. Reboot.

 

Regards,
