Problems Lion on Asus Rampage III Extreme

Recommended Posts

I've installed Lion 10.7.1 on RIIIE.


Works:

Sound - AppleHDA (ALC889) binary patched

Videos - (2 Asus GTX 470 in SLI) EFI inject. SLI is supported by Lion??

Network OK, only if... after waking up the LED on the router's LAN network from green to yellow, 1GB to 100MB, the only way to restore it is to reboot.

DVDR: PlextorPX880SA, Works but sometimes, (only without inserted DVD/CD) seems to turn on the burner and makes "funny noises ..." but it works. Maybe not 100% compatible ...?


Unresolved issues:

My ICH10 is seen as ICH8, The two pairs of disks in raid0 are seen as external. How to fix?

Sleep, do not go to sleep, or better, after a couple of seconds wakes up alone.

I run: grep Wake / var / log / kernel.log

Mac-Pro-to-Luke: Luke ~ $ grep Wake / var / log / kernel.log
Dec 5 02:53:51 Mac-Pro-of-Luke kernel [0]: Wake reason: EHC2
Dec 5 03:19:32 Mac-Pro-of-Luke kernel [0]: Wake reason: EHC2
Dec 5 03:20:55 Mac-Pro-of-Luke kernel [0]: Wake reason: EHC2

Then I followed this guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?s=&showtopic=155345&view=findpost&p=1533492


My unmodified EHC2 in DSDT:

Device (EHC2)
           {
               Name (_ADR, 0x001A0007)
               Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
               {
                   Store (Package (0x07)
                       {
                           "AAPL,current-available", 
                           0x05DC, 
                           "AAPL,current-extra", 
                           0x04B0, 
                           "AAPL,current-in-sleep", 
                           0x09C4, 
                           Buffer (One)
                           {
                               0x00
                           }
                       }, Local0)
                   DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))
                   Return (Local0)
               }

               Method (_PRW, 0, NotSerialized)
               {
                   Return (GPRW (0x0D, 0x04))
               }
           }

 

I deleted the PSW method, but nothing. Try this? :

If the system goes to sleep and wakes immediately, look for "Wake reason" in kernel log and edit method _PSW or remove _PRW from that device in DSDT.

I take this discussion after several months because I could not fix the sleep. I updated to 10.7.3 and I can no longer issue the command: grep Wake / var / log / kernel.log.

The problem of lan as explained in my first post, continues to be ...

@Cassio, After command:

Mac-Pro-di-L:~ l$ grep Wake /var/log/kernel.log

Open file with text editor and search for Wake.


Anyway, I guess it will be still the EHC2 which is causing the wake, so remove _PRW from it.
