To those using X540 cards with Small Tree drivers:
Have you experienced any issues with AirDrop? I noticed that since 10.13.6, having the X540 installed will sporadically break AirDrop for me. I replaced my X540 card with an AQC107 card and have not had a single issue with AirDrop.
Just trying to confirm if it's just me or if others also have this issue.
I succeeded installing 3 kexts for X550-AT2 on my X299 SAGE /10G, OS X 10.13.6 (High Sierra).
The problem is this: I had to install drivers for my video interface card (BMD Declink). It comes with Mac driver installed. It didn't work after restart until I wrote this command: sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /
After that BMD interface started working after restart, but my ethernet stopped working.
To get ethernet back, I had to do this:
1 - deleted 3 kexts, run kext utility
2 - restart
3 - installed FakePCIID and FakePCIID_Intel_GbX using kext utility (S/L/E)
4 - restart
5 - installed SmallTreeIntel8259x.kext using kext utility (S/L/E)
6 - restart
My 10gbe integrated ethernet is now working again... But seems too fragile. What I did wrong with that command? Can I do something to make this more stable? I had kernel panic because of some wrong bios settings and after restart I lost ethernet again. Had to do whole thing again (what I wrote before 1-6).
Did you manage to finally make the BlackMagicDesign card and X550 working simultaneously ?
What kind of other (the Decklink and GTXs) PCI cards are plugged-in in your system ?
Yes, it works. Kinda. With this problem that I described.
This computer stands by my desk for few weeks now because I don't have enough time to finish this build. I will this weekend.
So, for exmaple, I just turned it on to discover that ethernet is not working currently and I am now reinstalling drivers now as described. It will then probably work, but I have to find a way for it to work every time before putting it to use.
Anybody has any idea how to fix this dissappearing?
So, ethernet stops working as I described. I remove ethernet from network config in preferences.
After I loaded and unloaded SmallTree kext, ethernet re-appeared.
After restart - ethernet is gone (they are visible, but not working as before).
After manually loading SmallTree kext, ethernet doesn't re-appear.
I delete all FakePCIID and SmallTree kexts and run kext utility.
Install FakePCIID and FakePCIID IntelGbx and SmallTree kext using Kext Utility.
... until it stops working again, as it happened today.
Do it is a problem with kext loading order obviously. I will experiment a bit more, but this seems pretty random. If I rebuilt cache now, I would probably lose ethernet again.
After CUDA update, Ethernet stops working after restart. I had to remove all 3 kexts, restart, run kext utility an install all 3 again. And after restart it is working again as expected. What could be the problem?
