Works nice but small issues

Hi,

I have xfx nforce 680i Sli motherboard with intel q6600 cpu.

I got managed to install Ipc osx86 10.5.6 with 940StageXNUKernel and acpi fix with DSDT force compile.I install 10.5.8 update and the sleep now works and it also wake up without any issues.But the boot takes a long time about 70 seconds.

Also is that necessary to use CPUS=1 on boot up because i got the RTL 8139 network disconnected frequently.

Also is there any working guide on enabling sleep on snow leopard on this board.Please let me know if any.

You can install and run lspci using OSx86Tools or run DPCIManager and it will give a list of your devices and their IDs.......which can help identify what kexts may be needed to support the devices....... :)

I have all working except RTL 8139 ethernet.It works but it loses connections soon even after using PCGENRTL8139 kext.

I got DPCI Manager which device information you need.

Thanks

Check that the Info.plist file of the PCGENRTL8139.kext contains 0x813910ec.

 

However, I have also seen that the XFX 680i SLI MOBO is listed as having two Marvell 88E1118 Gigabit Ethernet LAN controllers onboard.....?

I have checked the kext info plist and it contains the device ID listed.

My motherboard is XFX 680I SLI LT which has one gigabit ethernet which was fried by lightening storm.So i am using that PCI card which has 8139 semiconductor.

Is it possible to repair a fried ethernet ?

Sorry about the 'fried' onboard LAN.......

 

OS X Leopard does not get on well with the RTL8139..........see here........your best bet is a PIC NIC with the Realtek RTL8169 chipset, e.g. Netgear GA311.......allowing you to use the AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext......

Yes same as i thought.I was looking into your signature and the peripherals you listed and i thought of buying netgear Ga311 adaptor.I think its price around $35 - $40 but i will buy it.So it will work OOB right?

I am still using my Netgear GA311 with OS X Leopard through to OS X Mountain Lion by putting the AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext from Snow Leopard into the OS X Lion and Mountain Lion /S/L/E/ folders....... :)

It does not have to be a Netgear GA311 card, just a Gigabit Ethernet PCI or PCI-e NIC that uses the Realtek RTL8169 chipset.......:)

Ok sure i will find out in our IT shop.Do you have sleep working on 10.5.8 because i have working and let me know if its correct procedure or i am doing something wrong.

I do not have sleep working on my nForce MOBO because I have overclocked the CPU and RAM.......you may be fortunate with sleep or discovered something others have missed, e.g. a specific DSDT.aml section etc..........look at iLeopod's 680i topic......what procedure did you follow to get it working?......I will try it with my OS X 10.5.8 system to replicate what you did and see if it works for me.....

Okay here i used the following kext and kernels.

I used IPC osx86 10.5.6 with 940stageXNUkernel (but you can also try other kernel)

I used ACPI fix which prevents the CMOS reset when i restart the system (i think )

I used DSDT Force compile - if you need this DSDT i will send it.

So sleep works and i also wakes up - by switching on the power button only and not on mouse or keyboard click.

I have also updated to 10.5.8.

Let me know if you need any other details i am glad to post.

    • ok, I am having a weird glitch with my Primary bios after modding it myself. can I get some help getting a Clean osmosis modded (for High Sierra and beyond) Bios Image?   https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/GA-Z87X-UD5-TH-rev-1x#support-dl   the version I have always stuck with was F4, because the F5d.  I use a custom iMac 14,2 configuration that has been stable, the issues I have with stability come from not being able to get Access to the Bios, and prior to my attempt to mod it has been stable with up to High Sierra using clover, and up to Sierra with my very very old Ozmosis 894m F4 rom. I am not opposed to installing Ozmosis on the EFI Partition, But Gigabyte locked the Bios loading .efi Files, there is no shell to Force it to load HFS+ or APFS drivers.   so what I am asking for is assistance ether unlocking a Shell for my Bios, or getting a bios with the APFS, HFS+, and Ozmosis related files in it.   thanks again for everyones assistance. HBP
    •     Install from fresh again. This time without Tony Tools, follow some guide in this topic. Install IntelHD kexts as usual in S/L/E and thats it. Everything works again, except for backlight, I never could have this work, also got heating problem and when boots apple logo dissapears from like 5 seconds and then appear the login window... Any ideas on any of this????

    • somehow I can't post a topic using safari and Firefox on Mac. no box for inserting text, is this kind of maintenance?  
    • Hello Allan!   I do have ACPIBatteryManager.kext and if i use IntelBacklight then I get stuck on boot with an error along of the lines of "busy timeout, (60s), : 'PEG0'". I have tried to patch the DSDT but failed. If i understand right, ACPIBatteryManager.kext needs DSDT edits to work? same goes for IntelBacklight?   EDIT: I tried to edit my stock DSDT using MacIASL again and i applied the battery patch for Asus Q550LF from @RehabMan Repo! I also applied the AsusFNkey DSDT patch. Now the battery meter pops up when i unplug the laptop. If i plug the charger back in, then the battery meter stays but does not update to show that the charger has been plugged in. Ive attached the DSDT below.. DSDT.aml.zip
