I've had great luck with this guide and this motherboard. Sound is working (Voodoo audio drivers), sleep is working, video is working.. But I'm really interested in getting the internal NIC to work. I found a SL G31 guide, and downloaded and installed the R1000.kext into SLE with kext helper, but it still says it can't determine the state of en0.. Just can't seem to tell when the cord is plugged in.. Despite the blinking lights in the socket.. What am I doing wrong?
i used the RealtekR1000sl.kext updated for snow (hence the "sl") from stellarola
also use the step "6 to activate bonjour networking" from the Install Guide Support Files from, blackosx: Vanilla Retail 10.6 with Chameleon v2 RC1 for Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3L ?
this combo worked fine for me
hope that helps.
