    Default Marvell 8056 Fix?

    I'm a newbie at installing OSX on a PC, but I do have uphuck's 10.4.8 installed successfully, except for Marvell 8056 LAN support. I've done a lot of searching in this forum on this subjest and have found several possible fixes, most of them centering around the file /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon.kext/Contents/Info.plist.

    I think I have to modify the plist in Terminal, but I can't located the file anywhere on my OSX disk. I get to the IONetworkingFamily.kext and there seem to be no subdirectories after that. Now, I come from a basically PC background, but I'm very interested in Mac. Any help for this 51 year old noob would be greatly appreciated!

    GA965P-DS3 (V 2.0) motherboard, BTW.

    Default Download 8053 Driver and change a little

    first, you can find 8053 driver. install it

    and modify your

    AppleYucon.kext -> Info.plist
    in

    /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIn/AppleYucon.kext/Contents/


    modify this,
    <key>Yukon-88E8053</key>
    <string>Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8053</string>
    <string>0x436211AB</string>

    to
    <key>Yukon-88E8056</key>
    <string>Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8056</string>
    <string>0x436411AB</string>

    after that, repair the permissions, reboot, then it will work.

    Thanks! I've opened the Info.plist in Terminal, but how do I save it back onto the hard drive? I'm still trying to learn Mac file structure, as you can probably tell...
