    Realtek 8169 driver

    just a quick recap of my experience on a GA Z68X-UD5-B3 RealtekRTL8111.kext 2.0 and 2.1d are unstable, and dropout after a while. AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext - doesn't work RealtekR1000SL (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/286937-realtekr1000-v3/) appears to work well however, drops out randomly during large copies > 100 gb, or during simultaneous network copies I'll try out the AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext and report also

    yes realtek nic. it works flawlessly with the R1000 kext. i have some time again and will work on the dsdt and hdmi sound for those who want in response to a few random comments. please just follow my guide, it works. My machine is on 24/7, only doesn't restart/sleep. dont use anything elese you don't need. there is no need to over complicate things. mine is running 10.6.5 (no need to update to 10.6.6 as of yet) sound works lan works etc etc regarding sleep and restart i can work on that. other things like lan and sound work if you dont use a distro! work with a real dvd and it will work. ninuk i will read your post and try and help you later.

    havn't edited the dsdt yet. will do that when i get some time. Possibly in a week or so. edit: ethernet now working The computer is working perfectly fine no KP or restarts needed this info may have been lost in my previous post. However, USB has major problems with booting on the board. Take your disc out of the usb enclosure and use internal sata instead. This will solve your problems. Also install snow leopard as it will work for sure. If there is actual interest ill invest more time into the project.

    just to let any potentials out there know. i've been using this boards as my htpc for 3 weeks without a hickup. its a great ITX board. a few probs that may get ironed out, however for the purpose its perfect atm.

    Thats it.. Ive HAD IT!

    its actually EASIER now than ever before to build a hackintosh. with tiger we needed disto's. when leopard was released all we needed was a few kexts to modify the vanilla dvd. with snow leopard we no longer needed a DVD, all we need is a working mac (real or hackintosh), 3-4 kexts plus chameleon to boot the majority of mobos. if you don't like to troubleshoot... hackintosh is not for you if you like to use software update... hackintosh is not for you remember hackintoshes are not for the faint hearted, however the benefits may be worth the effort. to quote skidman "If it ain't broken, don't fix it!"

    UPDATE JUNE 22: I've got this board (the AT3IONT-I, not deluxe) working very wellnow after a bit of teething problems and using it as htpc. the following text is messy, i'll clean up the text up later. USB booting is flakey - don't bother its just not worth the wasted time, pop your drive into the sata port instead 0. Format drive of interest as GPT partition (take note of the disk identifier number) 1. Installation from vanilla Snow Leopard Installation DVD onto usb hdd or whatever /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ DVD/system/installation/packages/osinstall.mpkg 2. Install Chameleon [http://chameleon.osx86.hu/articles/chameleon-20-rc4-is-out] 3. Kexts in /Extra/Extensions Disabler.kext fakesmc.kext Realtek1000SL.kext UUID.kext IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext HDAenabler.kext Legacy888bHDA.kext chown and chmod /Extra sudo kextcache -v 1 -m /Volumes/INSERTNAMEHERE/Extra/Extensions.mkext /Volumes/INSERTNAMEHERE/Extra/Extensions/ files in /Extra smbios.plist (MacPro) com.apple.Boot.plist Required Flags in com.apple.Boot.plist <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>arch=i386</key> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>yes</string> 4. Put Hdd into the AT3IONT-I machine or try USB [had heaps and heaps of issues with random waiting for boot device] enable hyperthreading and AHCI in BIOS boot the machine run MacOSXUpdCombo10.6.3v1.1.dmg run .27ae script and copy patched files to /S/L/E copy AppleHDA.kext from 10.6.2 into /S/L/E chown and chmod S/L/E sudo kextcache -v 1 -m System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions/ copy patched kernel [mach_kernel 10.3.0 (Mac OS X 10.6.3) Fixed 64-bit mode] to root reboot hopefully it works known problems onboard sound - crackles with voodooHDA in 10.6.3 (not an issue for me, as using usb sound so lowest priority) - working now only 10mbit ethernet. (working on this one - really annoying when transferring large files) -fixed -64-bit kernel panics (not the end of the world, may look into it) -cold reboot - crashes sometimes during boot, then boots fine (working on it) - vlc/quicktime 720p - stutters badly. 720/1080p plays fine with MPlayer OSX Extended tho. nb: yes you can edit dsdt for HDEF, however running one more kext is just fine. USB probs will most likely get fixed via dsdt edit also... next time i have time
