CardBus/PCMCIA PC Cards for Leopard


Here is the IOPCCardFamily file that I have worked on today. I complied the source files offered from Apple and also fixed some bugs. You do not have to edit the info.plist to match your machine. If your pccard shows "IOPCCardBridge::start failed", you can give it a try.

How to use?
  • Backup your original IOPCCardFamily driver (and IOPCIFamily driver)
  • Replace your IOPCCardFamily driver (and IOPCIFamily driver) with the attached one that contains all necessary modifications
  • Reboot
  • As root, type "dmesg | grep PC"; you should see something being found
Welcome to try it. Don't forget to backup the old files before trying it.
