I pushed the official version 2.0.0 to GitHub and updated the prebuilt binary in the download section of this website a few moments ago.

 

Have fun!  :cat:

Unable to boot to desktop with this kext installed.

 

For some reason, it interferes with my FakePCIID and my Intel Graphics 4600 (04160000) stuff. I get to Apple logo with mouse, then I get a KP.

 

Removing kext and rebooting twice resolves issue. Not injecting the HD4600 graphics also resolves the issue. However, result is either no net or flickery-as-hell Safari.

I'm using this RealtekRTL8111.kext along with the various FakePCIID kexts. No issue.

Your problem lies somewhere else.

I'll second RehabMan works fine here with my 4600 enabled.

I was informed by bellcow that the prebuilt binaries of version 2.0.0 don't work on Mountain Lion. I pushed a modified version which fixes the issue to GitHub. In case you are still running ML, please build from source. Users with Mavericks and newer aren't affected of the problem so that there is no need for an update.

I have the latest beta, public beta 3. I can't seem to be able to load the kext! Tried with rootless and kext dev mode, no use. Works fine on yosemite.

I usually don't test the beta releases but I've never had any problems with ethernet kext.

Ok....I'm a newbie but I dont see the kext in the git address. Just some files. Do i have to compile the kext myself (which I have no idea how to do anyway) or am I missing something else

Mieze,

 

Great job on the driver. I like how you slide in a "please don't support tonymacx86.com!" in your Console log. :) :thumbsup_anim:

 

Aanyway, I just installed version 2.0.0. and apparently I have the RTL8411B chipset in my laptop. EEE and ASPM work well. However, OS X manages to enable the "Realtek PXE" device when I boot up, when I want to keep it disabled. What's wrong?

Hi Mieze,

Thanks for all your work on this driver, it has worked great over the years.  :)  I do have a possible bug to report (with admittedly poor repro steps).

 

I'm using the 2.0 version of the driver on 10.10.5 and I recently had a HD fail on me. I rebuilt my machine and attempted to use Time Machine to restore my drive from a Time Capsule.  This has worked in the past, but this time the data rates from the Time Capsule were so slow it would have never finished.   I tried restoring from a boot thumb drive and restoring from a full 10.10.5 install using the Migration Assistant, both had abyssal throughput.  Seems something about Time Machine restoration doesn't like the driver.  :(   Anyway, I know this is a pretty antidotal report, but I thought I should let you know.

@willco007: A driver bug is the only thing I can rule out for sure. This is either a hardware problem or a broken configuration.
