Hi guys, could you give me a hand? I replaced my Intel Wireless 5100 AGN by a BCM4321 and I think my IOPCIFamily is wrong again. Could you compile it in 64 bits, pls? unsure.gif

This is my linux lspci: http://hotfile.com/dl/120112270/0be29a2/lspci_linux.txt.html (2shared not work)

Do you think this will work?

This time I promise you an online beer. wink.gif

My friend your LSPCI is OK. IOPCIFamily that I made for u should be working!
I'm not sure but , did u edit info.plist whit your ID of BCM 4321 ?
If u want open IOREG and U will see that your PCI bridge are get correct addressing.
I thing that u need just to ADD YOUR ID in /system/librarty/extensions/IO80211Family.kext/contents/plugins/AppleAirportBCM4311.kext/contents/info.plist or just install Broadcom43XXFamily.kext

DID U MADE IT?

Yes, I've done all that but still not working. unsure.gif

Maybe it's stupid what I say but I have changed the new wifi card to another PCI slot because in the previous did not recognize it.

I compared my two files and there is a difference in the "Bus: primary=00, secondary=XX, subordinate=XX" between the old and new.

In the first:

Bus: primary=00, secondary=07, subordinate=07, sec-latency=0

And the new:

Bus: primary=00, secondary=05, subordinate=05, sec-latency=0

The I/O behind bridge, Memory behind bridge and Prefetchable memory behind bridge seem to be the same in both. In my MacOS-generated lspci bridges not detected correctly.

Ok this is my IOPCIFamily http://www.2shared.com/file/NX-qgYqH/IOPCIFamily.html

put intel WIFI in the first ,original slot (whit touch ON/OF button)
put BCM in second slot , and install my IOPCIFamily

I deleted Xcode because have not space and can't compilate new IOPCIFamily

My IOPCIfamily have

Bus: primary=00, secondary=02, subordinate=04, sec-latency=0


Bus: primary=00, secondary=05, subordinate=05, sec-latency=0


Bus: primary=00, secondary=07, subordinate=07, sec-latency=0


Bus: primary=00, secondary=09, subordinate=09, sec-latency=0


SOO try it !

Unfortunately it does not work. Kernel Panic. sad.gif
I try to install the "Xcode" and compile it. But I tried another time and could not.

Do you know any tutorial? I followed this: http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=2118 but once my problem is to compile and run it for 64 bit with "Xcode".

I have the same Acer 6930G, and i was use your DSDT, and is OK!
After i was installed your IOPCIFAMILY (you have posted at post: #62) but Kernel Panic... sad.gif

i have a Broadcom 4312, do you think, can i use IOPCIFAMILY that you have made for mr. CUrro?

Please, Help me...???!!????!!!! unsure.gif unsure.gif

If your LSPCI is the same like CUrro's - YES
If it's not the same - NO

Hi All,

I used the compiled version for CUrros and it worked like a charm with a BCM 4312 (pin 20 trick).

Currently working in both SL 10.6.8 and Lion 10.7 (Appstore).

@ Bronza, Thanks for your efforts. smile.gif

Most of all, thank you DarkUttek - you are a hero! You deserve the prize rolleyes.gif

I'm sure some like Slice could automate this process and make the kext universal.

Best regards

EDIT: Now With $75 AAPL Gift Card Bounty!

Hello everyone, I have an Acer Aspire 6930g notebook, and everything is great except for one (major) problem, the PCI/MiniPCIe cards don't get assigned interrupts (or in LAN's case, interrupts and io registers). I've tried to use modified IOPCIFamily kexts (AnV, Slice, chunnan) with little success, they all cause crashes before hitting the desktop in both SL and 10.5.7 (except Slice's SL IOPCIFamily, which doesn't cause a panic, but has no affect on my system). However, chunnan's kext did bring up wl0 for a glorious moment before locking the system up (verbose boot). I'm wondering if it's possible to hard-code the addresses/interrupts in the DSDT, but I'm not much of a programmer. I'm willing to help debug this in any way possible, and have tried:

IOPCIFamily/AMW0/HPETDevice kexts in many different combinations, both with and without DSDT, and with/without Nullcpupowermanagement
Changing DSDT to use Linux's Values (_OSI)
Changing DSDT to use XP/Vista's Values
IOPCMCIAFamily + IOPCIFamily Kexts


I've also tried with and without netkas' fix for acer laptops (involves modifying the USB kext), but it doesn't seem to help.

Attached are a clean copy of my DSDT from linux, and lspci -vv dumps from linux and osx.

I've been trying to figure this out for 3 months now, and lots of people seem to have the same issue with this model, even in freebsd...

12/12/09: To date, I have successfully booted SL with Chunnan's kext once out of around 300 boots (trying desperately to get back to desktop with it so I can dump the proper ioreg).... It is just as stable/reliable in Leo 10.5.6/10.5.7 sad.gif

[attachment=750:dsdtlin.zip]
[attachment=751:lspci_osx.txt][attachment=765:tcioreg.zip]

Relevant System Specs:
Intel PM45 Chipset (ICH9) with Core2Duo CPU
Nvidia GeForce 9600gs with 512mb ram (on PCI bus of some sort, but has seperate entry in dsdt, where all other pci cards are listed as RP01-0x under PCI0@0 in the DSDT)


I've tried to download a copy of IOPCIFamly.kext for my acer 6930g using the 2share links in these threads but I get a file which is only 170 bytes long and is not a kext (unless I'm being really dim which is always a possibility). Could someone upload a 32bit/64bit version of this kext as I'd like to get my Atheros ethernet working if possible?

Many thanks in advance..

Anyone have the IOPCIFamily source code of the kext at this link?
