Hi everyone,

 

I have been using osx86 some years ago.

Now I have new pc and laptop and want to install el capitan on them, I need help about kexts for them, please help me out,

 

PC

-Athlon X2 3ghz (found kernels for it)

-AMD 970 Chipset - I need kexts

-Etron USB 3.0 Controller - I need kexts

-ATI Radeon HD 5570 - I have kext

-ASUS Xonar D1 - if there's a kext please help me out

-VIA VT 2021 - I have kexts

-Realtek GBe RTL8168/8111 (PHY: RTL8211/8212)

 

Laptop - Acer Aspire ES1-520

-AMD E1 2500 CPU 1.4GHz Dual-Core with ATI Radeon HD 8240 - I'm not sure which kernel will work, and which/if there's a kext for the GPU

-AMD Hudson 2 FCH Sata Ahci controller - I need kexts

-AMD USB 3.0 Controller - I need kexts

-Realtek Alc235 - I need Kexts

-Qualcomm Atheros ar956x - I need kexts

-Realtek rtl8168/8111 gbe - I need kext

-Bluetooth - I am not sure which vendor & model - I couldn't find any info - Broadcom drivers didn't found any broadcom bluetooth device - so it's probably Realtek Bluetooth

-Realtek usb 2.0 cardreader

 

 

Also please help me out about other kexts that are needed for usage, and for laptop battery-wake-sleep etc.

 

 

Thanks in advance,

ASUS Xonar D1 - After a google search it looks like no one has gotten it working. I don't see anyone trying VoodooHDA with it so you can try that. No guarantee that you'll get it working.

 

AMD 970 Chipset - you don't install kexts for generic southbridge chipset support.

 

Etron USB3 - looks like people have used GenericUSBXHCI for OS X 10.10 and older though USB support changed in 10.11+ so I'm not sure if you can use it for Etron support in those newer versions. I am reading that Rehabman's build has gotten some specific USB3 chips supported though so you can try using it in 10.11. Link: https://bitbucket.or...3-2015-1215.zip

 

As for the laptop, it looks like someone got the AMD E1 2500 APU working with graphics: http://www.insanelym...10#entry2058854I usually don't recommend installing on AMD laptops because you usually cannot get graphics working but it looks like you have a chance here.

 

AHCI - You don't need special kexts for AHCI support. 

 

ALC235 - it seems it's supported in AppleALC but this is on an AMD chipset so that will change things. I'm sure you can use something like VoodooHDA and get it working.

 

AR956x - I assume AR9565 - I usually recommend to replace it with a better supported card but it looks like someone got it working in 10.11. You can give it a try - http://www.insanelym...supported-cards

 

Realtek rtl8168/8111 gbe - try http://www.insanelym...rtl8111-binary/

 

Bluetooth - AR9565 is a wifi/bt combo card so that's where your bluetooth most likely is at.

 

Realtek card reader - need specifics. If it's not connected to the USB bus on the laptop then you might have issues. If it is USB then yes it will probably work. I'm reading people have had problems with realtek card readers that connect through pcie with the various 3rd party card reader kexts. You could always buy a cheap USB card reader that will work fine in OS X.

Thank you nawcom,as for the card reader, I think it is usb connected.

 

Also I need help for El Capitan about fakesmc, NullCPUPowerManagement and battery managment. Thanks

Looking into how spakk got his HD8240 working, it seems he's not giving his EFI string away. Also in another thread he says he couldn't get graphics acceleration working - he just got the max resolution detected: http://www.insanelym...apitan-1011/ SoI think you'll have to send him a message and see if he can explain where he's at with that.

 

For FakeSMC you can use the latest one - this version will work: https://bitbucket.or...ozlek/downloads

 

NullCPUPowerManagement: http://files.nawcom....gement.kext.zip

 

There are a couple kexts you can try for battery support, like https://bitbucket.or...river/downloadsand you may need a DSDT mod but let's try to get the OS working before worrying about that
