Hi all,

New here, thought I'd give the Hack a shot, I DL'd an image and after much f&$&ing about got it to work, I was dead surprised (and pleased)

However, I too have a DS3 with the Yukon 88E8056 ethernet card. I'm using Leo 9a581 and when I try locate the Yukon file I cant find it, only the Yukon2 file, which I tried editing anyway (as per the guides) with no luck. DO I need to CREATE a Yukon file then edit that? Is Leo different from Tiger in this respect?

 

Hope all is hanging well for Y'all :-)

Hi rammjet,

I followed your howto and unfortunately it has not worked out for me...

 

I followed your instructions to the letter, and upon rebooting I was confronted with the following messages:

 

'System extension cannot be used ' the system extension /System/library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext' was installed improperly and cannot be used...'

 

 

This message was followed by others that were identical aprt from the associated extension that had failed.. these were

 

/System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamiley.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext

 

/System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamiley.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext

 

and

 

/System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamiley.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleYukon2.kext

 

I had previously edited 'AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext' adn added the Yukon 88E8056 card ID and vendor details, as seen in another post...

 

Any ideas onwhy this has not worked and I have these error messages would be much appreciated...

 

Thanks

Danskiman

 

 

To get your Yukon 88E8056 Ethernet to work, you need to add your device id to the AppleYukon.kext. Go to Terminal and type:
cd /System/Library/Extensions                                             <-- changes directory
sudo nano IONetworking.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon.kext/Info.plist   <-- edits file

  (find and change: <key>Yukon-88E8053</key>)
  (to:              <key>Yukon-88E8056</key>)       <-- change "53" to "56"

  (find and change: <string>Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8053</string>)
  (to:              <string>Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8056</string>)       <-- change "53" to "56"

  (find and change: <string>0x436211AB</string>)
  (to:              <string>0x436411AB</string>)    <-- change "62" to "64"

(press Control-O)                                   <-- saves changes
(press Y and Enter)                                 <-- accepts saving to existing file
(press Control-X)                                   <-- exits nano

sudo chown -R root:wheel IONetworkingFamily.kext    <-- repairs permissions
cd /System/Library                                  <-- changes directories
sudo rm -rf Extensions.mkext Extensions.kextcache   <-- rebuilds kextcache on reboot

Then reboot.

Danskiman,

 

Did you get this fixed? If not try the following:

 

sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/

sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/

rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.mkext

rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache

diskutil RepairPermissions /

reboot

 

Hope this helps.

Hi mac-n-cheeze,

 

no I havent got it to work...

 

I have tried several things to no-avail...

I have downloaded a bundle from 'irc.osx86.hu' #radeon topic, and overwritten the extensions folder with the files contained within.

 

But on rebooting, OSX informs me that 'NATIT' was not installed correctly....and cant be used..

 

Under NEtworks my ethernet card status reads connected but I cannot connect to the net through any browser..

 

i may try the apple yukon workaround with vendor ID and device details with your added instructions to see what i get...

 

this is really frustrating, because aprt from this and my ATI 2900xt not working, OS X rocks...

 

a definitive 'howto' for the 8056 marvell yukon is needed, me thinks!

cheers

 

Danskiman,

 

Did you get this fixed? If not try the following:

 

sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/

sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/

rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.mkext

rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache

diskutil RepairPermissions /

reboot

 

Hope this helps.

Im running a flat-image of osx Leopard on an Asus Pk5-e board with the 88E8056 Marvel Yukon ethernet card. Im sure this will work on any board with the card on it so this is how I got mine to work.

 

Find and Download the "gigabyte_ds3-4pack.1.2", then in Terminal, type:

 

cd /System/Library/Extensions <-- changes directory

sudo nano IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon2.kext/Plugins/Info.plist <-- edits file

(find and change: <string>0x9E001148</string>) <-- there will be many

(find and change: <string>0x21001148</string>) <-- again, there will be many

(to: <string>0x436411AB</string>)

 

(press Control-O) <-- saves changes

(press Enter) <-- accepts saving to existing file

(press Control-X) <-- exits nano

 

sudo chown -R root:wheel IONetworkingFamily.kext <-- repairs permissions

cd /System/Library <-- changes directories

sudo rm -rf Extensions.mkext Extensions.kextcache <-- rebuilds kextcache on reboot

exit <-- saves it all

 

*Now Reboot your system. When Leopard starts back up, go into your "System Preferences" and into your "Network". In there go to your "Ethernet" icon on the left hand side and change your settings to "DHCP" (mostly if your on a router, if your directly on a cable modem or DSL modem it can be different, pretty self explanatory though) then watch it reconnect. And WALAH!!! I was surprised too. I nearly keeled over in excitement.

 

--Thanks to all those MILLIONS of posts that help gather together all this information.

As said before-

 

cd /System/Library/Extensions <-- changes directory

sudo nano IONetworking.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon.kext/Info.plist <-- edits file

 

(find and change: <key>Yukon-88E8053</key>)

(to: <key>Yukon-88E8056</key>) <-- change "53" to "56"

 

(find and change: <string>Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8053</string>)

(to: <string>Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8056</string>) <-- change "53" to "56"

 

(find and change: <string>0x436211AB</string>)

(to: <string>0x436411AB</string>) <-- change "62" to "64"

 

(press Control-O) <-- saves changes

(press Y and Enter) <-- accepts saving to existing file

(press Control-X) <-- exits nano

 

sudo chown -R root:wheel IONetworkingFamily.kext <-- repairs permissions

cd /System/Library <-- changes directories

sudo rm -rf Extensions.mkext Extensions.kextcache <-- rebuilds kextcache on reboot

 

You can search pressing F6 in nano

Hi Guys. I followed all the directions, specially entry #4 and entered the code correctly in the Terminal window. I also downloaded gigabyte_ds3-4pack.1.2 and installed the Yukon adapter's package by itself. I booted and still not working.

 

Is there something else that I can try. Been trying to fix this for 2 days now, driving me nuts.

 

Please help!

 

Thanks.

I tried the trick above on my xps m1530 which has a 88e8040 Ethernet. However my leopard will crash after a reboot, just got stuck at the apple booting screen. I modified the 8053 part. Shall I modified 8055 part and get a secondary id match? Can anyone help? Thanks a lot!

Hi!

 

It doesn't work for me.

 

"sudo nano IONetworking.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon.kext/Contents/Info.plist <-- edits file"

 

I can't find the file. Whenever I type this command, he want to create a "Info.plist". Can't edit it.

With and without bolded "/Contents".

Hi lla,

 

I have a IP35 and i have the exact same problem. With Leo4all V3 and Kalyway the 8056 works great, but with EFI i cannot seem to get it to work yet. If I find i solution i'll let you know, but i only started yesterday with this stuff, so i am still in learning-mode :)

Ok for me the solution was to boot with -x -v flags, enable the interface in System Preferences and then reboot again. Lan is working for me now :(

Thank you very much .

 

unload the lan card and the driver . And rebuild the driver , using edit Info.plist .

then Boot into -x (safemode) and can kill the problem.

In case anyone has the same "Ethernet Cable Unplugged" message in the network system preferences

 

I used following command.

 

open a terminal window

sudo -s

ifconfig en0 down

ifconfig en0 up

 

It was originally suggested as

 

a) open a terminal window

c) sudo -s

:P ifconfig en1 down

d) ifconfig en1 up
