  1. I have one of these chipsets as well in an Asrock 939 Dual-SATA2 motherboard. See here: http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Mode...al-SATA2&s= I installed Jas 10.4.8 AMD/Intel SSE2/SSE3 and it works fine EXCEPT networking and sound. Obviously, no networking is a big problem so I'm *very* interested in your work on this chipset. Do you have any updates? Let me know how I can assist. I think I have an Ubuntu Live CD somewhere if that will help. Thanks for your work!
  2. Hi I hope you can help me as well - I'm kinda new to the Mac but know my way around a PC. I installed JaS 10.4.8 AMD/Intel SSE2/SSE3 Semthex 8.8.1 image on my PC and the install went flawless. I can boot fine and most things seems to work - EXCEPT sound (I will worry about that later) and networking (which is a big problem). I spent a long time troubleshooting and reading this forums and eventually downloaded the PCGenRTL8139Ethernet 1.2.0 package and installed it according to the instructions (the loader says "valid"). I was hoping it would work, but it didn't. Nothing changed - System Preferences/Network is completely "empty". My motherboard is a Asrock 939 Dual-SATA2 (AMD Opteron 165 Dual Core CPU) w/ built-in ethernet. I'm pretty sure it has a Realtek RTL8201CL network chipset and that might be the problem. Everyone seems to be asking about Realtek, but I have not been able to find any posts about this particular motherboard and/or chipset. Do you have any suggestions for what to do? I'm pretty desperate - I was so happy to get everything installed without a single problem but have now spend a long time just getting networking to work. Thanks in advance!
