Ok this is what i have, http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...8758&dlc=en

 

i have installed 2 versions of 10.4.6 jas and MAC_OS_X_10_4_8_Intel_Only_Jas_re_seed_(SSE3_Only_NO_AMD)-++Demonoid.com++

 

ok ive isntalled jas 9x and never has my usb worked, sse3 only 3x no usb, ive have tried the apple usb family without the log, no dice on both everytime.. ive tried to use your method i copied and pasted every command, reboot no dice.. usb2 and 1 nothing ,

 

i always have that error,

USBF: 16.991 EHCI controller unable to take control from BIOS

USBF: 16.991 AppleUSBEHCI[0x2c56000]: unable to obtain ownership: 0xe00002be

USBF: 16.991 AppleUSBEHCI[0x2c56000]::UIMInitialize - Error occurred (0xe00002be)

USBF: 16.993 AppleUSBEHCI[0x2c56000]: UIMFinalize 0 0 0x2c98700

USBF: 16.993 AppleUSBEHCI: unable to initialize UIM

 

(ok i copied this from a previous post the #s may be different but the actions are the same..

 

What the hell do i have to do to get USB to work? im running vista on my other partiotion so i dont have macdrive on it. so i can open logs or antyhing, and since usb doenst work, i can save anything to external.. how am i suppoed to post my boot logs??? HELPPPPPPP

 

 

 

thanks a million, jamie

Maybe you have to change "Legacy USB Support" option in BIOS...

thats another thing i dont have many options in my bios, pretty much just boot, date time, hd check, there is one thing that says something about sata and when you highlight it is says something about legacy but nothing about USB.. I did just update my bios.. this is really bugging me.. soo annoying i just want my mouse and hd to work!

Tested the USB 2.0 hub with it's own power supply. It worked!!! orByte, Andrei thank you all very much!!! Tomorrow i'll buy this hub. The last thing is to make work UDMA properly and everything will be fine! Thanks! :)

 

:D Glad to hear that!

Hi the Generic driver will NOT work with 10.4.8. Try Jas 10.4.6 + PCGenUSB from a cold start - with a laptop, this means taking out the battery, unplugging, then after >10 seconds starting up. Do you have USB 1.1 working with the cold start? If possible post your own logs. If you have a dos partition available, you could save them there as text files.

 

:( On other news, I have started up on the 10.4.8 version but it is yet too early for a prognosis.

 

Best.

Hi orByte, Im trying your driver with jas 4.6, 4.7, 4.8. And I get this lines at boot (I got this already before trying your generic driver).

 

23 05:43:09 localhost kernel[0]: USBF: 69.187 AppleUSBEHCI[0x2618800]::UIMInitialize - unable to get device memory

Nov 23 05:43:09 localhost kernel[0]: USBF: 69.190 AppleUSBEHCI[0x2618800]::UIMInitialize - Error occurred (0xe00002be)

Nov 23 05:43:09 localhost kernel[0]: USBF: 69.194 AppleUSBEHCI: unable to initialize UIM

 

(very similar to the lines from meatwagon above)

 

Im using a Toshiba A60. The Dev ID must be 1002,4345 for the USB 2.0 port and 1002,4347/4348 ports for the USB 1. There's no many USB settings posibilities from my computer's BIOS.

Do you think there's a walkaround for this?

BTW the USB 1 ports are working and shown in the system profile window (working with the OHIC driver)

 

Tanks for your good work.

 

EDIT: I'll try what you posted just above. If I use the 10.4.6, showld I install the 4.7 USB driver update?

Generally speaking,

UIMInitialize - unable to get device memory

is bad news. Is this under 10.4.8? To use PCGen under 10.4.6 proceed as follows:

 

1. install JaS 10.4.6 as usual, e.g. from disk, or if you have a back up disk image handy then via

sudo asr restore --source <back-up-disk-image.dmg> --target <dest-drive> [--erase]

1a. If you do not have a backup image, you might want to make one from a clean working 10.4.6 installation. From the disk utility do File>New Image>From Disk (roughly speaking), and then make sure to do 'Scan For Restore'.

 

2. Now you do something like

cp -R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBFamily/Contents/Plugins/AppleUSBEHCI.kext	 <to-back-up-dest>
rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBFamily/Contents/Plugins/AppleUSBEHCI.kext 

then cp -R <PCGEN.kext>	  /System/Library/Extensions

 

Pls. double check paths as I m presently typing this from memory. In short, you do NOT install the 10.4.7 USB Family but only replace AppleUSBEHCI in the current USB Family.

 

Make sure to re-set permissions too.

10.4.8 testing

 

Hi all, I now have a working 10.4.8 using TubGirl's v2 (AMD) setup. As installed, I can run AppleUSBFamily 256.4 (without AppleUSBEHCI) instead with PCGenUSBEHCI just fine.

 

However, this setup DOES NOT use any 10.4.8 kexts. I have had some inquiries on building a 10.4.8 driver from users who have been having difficulty with 256.4 & PCGen under 10.4.8. Could some people in this category please post

kextstat, and uname -psrv, and cat /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist

output. You could be on intel or AMD. But esp. intel would be very useful. This will help me to match up the kexts as closely as possible before I build a 10.4.8 driver, and will likely increase the chance of building a 10.4.8 PCGenUSBEHCI module that will run on as wide a base as possible. As AMD installations are widely version hybridised compared to intel boxes, that info would be of great help.

 

 

Many thanks in advance!!

Thanks for your replay.

I tryed what you said in the post #57 but I couldnt get it to work. I still get the same lines at boot, no matter the OS version I use...

I guess it might be a limitation from within the BIOS....

Thanks again anyway.

I just realized that this is an ATI chipset - most likely the source of the problems - could be a register implementation issue. It turns out that support for the SB 200 was late in coming even under Linux (late 2005) I shall have a look at the Linux side to see if a simple patch implementation would be possible.

Hi !

When the system tries to load your kext, I get this:

 

Nov 29 14:13:23 localhost kernel[0]: kld(): Undefined symbols:

Nov 29 14:13:23 localhost kernel[0]: __ZN24IOBufferMemoryDescriptor17getVirtualSegmentEmPm

Nov 29 14:13:23 localhost kernel[0]: kld_load_from_memory() failed for module com.orByte.driver.PCGenUSBEHCI

Nov 29 14:13:23 localhost kernel[0]: ^[[33mFailed to load extension com.orByte.driver.PCGenUSBEHCI.

Nov 29 14:13:23 localhost kernel[0]: ^[[0mCouldn't alloc class "AppleUSBEHCI"

 

I obiously did something wrong, but what ?

 

I am running the following system:

dv8000t with core duo

Jas 10.4.7 combo-upgraded to 10.4.8, with paulicat's AppleSMBIOS and special IOATAFamily. Removed IOPCCardFamily because it crashed upon loading. Kernel is semthex Beta8.

Hi,

 

This problem originates because the kext was compiled against the 8.4.1 kernel and compatible libraries. A lot of people have been upgrading to the semthex 10.4.8, and I will configure a semthex 10.4.8 system and recompile there. That should make the kext available for systems running the semthex kernel! If you have a moment though, could you plz post or send me

kextstat, and uname -psrv, and cat /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist

 

Many thanks in advance.

Hi.

I just run a new version of SiSoft Sandra and it identified my chipset as R200 AGP bridge (id CAB3) & RS200 PCI bridge (id 7010)...

Thanks man. You're doing great job here.

Hi,

 

I tested the link and it seems to be working fine. You may need to type in a verification code at the top right, and then wait for a while before the download. If you are continuing to have difficulties, pls. post the exact error message. If all else fails, you can also try downloading through public proxy such as these. But it should not be needed.

 

Edit: Come to think of it... there is another possibility as well: If there is high download volume, then there could be a delay/throttling going on from the provider side, as I am using the 'free' variety of the service. :-)

Orbyte..

 

I have kernel 8.4.1 and applied patches in order adviced.. IOUSB from Apple.. 246.4.0.. which didn't work..and then PCGen .. and also didn't work.. I get:

 

USBF: 189.898 Attempting to get EHCI Controller from BIOS

USBF: 189.898 EHCI - Ownership conflict - attempting to resolve ...

USBF: 189.898 EHCI - Try resetting OS Ownership to 0

USBF: 190.149 EHCI controller unable to take control from BIOS

USBF: 190.149 AppleUSBEHCI[0x21da800]: unable to obtain ownership: 0xe00002be

USBF: 190.149 AppleUSBEHCI[0x21da800]::UIMInitialize - Error occurred (0xe00002be)

USBF: 190.151 AppleUSBEHCI: unable to initialize UIM

 

I have no options in bios to disable or enable.. this is a HP Pavilion dv8323ea.. and I will try a bios update soon.. (Iwill have to backup everything first!).. but i wanted to ask you.. could it be that we need to add the vendor ID or device ID somewhere in the PCGenUSBEHCI Info.plist ? For instance, if i look at dxdiag got in windows XP I see something like:

 

-----------

USB Devices

-----------

+ Hub principale USB

| Vendor/Product ID: 0x8086, 0x27C8

| Matching Device ID: usb\root_hub

| Service: usbhub

| Driver: usbhub.sys, 8/3/2004 23:08:44, 57600 bytes

| Driver: usbd.sys, 8/19/2004 12:00:00, 4736 bytes

 

or something like this:

 

Name: Intel® 82801G (ICH7 Family) USB2 Enhanced Host Controller - 27CC

Device ID: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27CC&SUBSYS_30A5103C&REV_01\3&B1BFB68&0&EF

Driver: C:\WINDOWS\system32\hccoin.dll, 5.01.2600.2180 (English), 8/19/2004 12:00:00, 7168 bytes

 

 

I solved the ethernet and sound card not being recognised by adding those kind of hexadecimal IDs to the appropriate kext files.. could it be the same here? I just can't identify in PCGen kext the right strings to deal with these kind of values..

Hello,

I tried again but I received always the same error: "all the slots for your country are full. Please try later or install the Megaupload toolbar"...

I searched in Google and I found a lot of discussion about this problem... it seems that Megaupload in some countries doesn't work without their toolbar (I tried later and later but every time I received the same message).

Could you upload the file on a different website ?

Thank you

Hi mspr,

 

Apparently megaupload is not that great... I have now moved the files to sendspace and updated the links. Sorry for the inconvenience. Eventually I ll have a permanent location for all my files but it is still in design stages. Any more problems, let me know.

Hi joelones,

 

I am suspecting a conflict between PCGen and the Parallels USB module. It looks like you are getting two EHCI (hi speed USB) devices competing for the same driver slot (nib or nub... or hub). It could be a problem with the DFI-LANPARTY as well - what's the chipset?. See what happens when you disable the parallels USB module and then 'touch /System/Library/Extensions' and reboot. If that does not do it pls. send me a copy of:

ioreg -w0 -bl
