Ok so far i have got sound working great ie itunes plays wonderfull i have not yet messed around with graphic as everything works as it should res colours just no dual screen.

ok my main problem is my ethernet card i managed to find a installer package realtek 1.02 but did not work i have got copy of realtek1000 which supposedly supports my hardware stated above but every time with terminal i get errors ie




kernel extension RealtekR1000.kext has problems:

Authentication failures:


"File owner/permissions are incorrect (must be root:wheel, nonwritable by group/other)" = (










"Kext has immediate dependencies on both com.apple.kernel and com.apple.kpi components; use only one style" = true






[Process completed]
