NetLink BCM5787M Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express not supported?
« on: November 30, 2009, 09:06:51 PM »
HI, i was trying to make my ethernet works (wifi does out of the box). I have a NetLink BCM5787M Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express and when i put boot options as:
 
   <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
   <string>Yes</string>

nothings happens. Even if i use put y instead of Yes. (Everything else as boot options works: Graphics Enabler, boot partition, etc...)

In addition, I don't have any additionnal kexts in my extra folder for ethernet that might cause a compatibility problems. (My S/L/E is untouched as vanilla install).

I'm running 10.6.2 vanilla in 32 bits (in 64 also i don't have ethernet). I'm also running Chameleon RC3.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

PS: here is my .plist

Code: [Select]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

<string>Yes</string>
<key>Default Partition</key>

</dict>
</plist>

EthernetBuiltIn=y is not a device driver.
