Darwin Realtek drivers?

Post by Dale Stanb » Sun, 05 Sep 2004 09:58:50


In /System/Library/Extensions there is a file AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext,
which I believe is Apple's drivers for the RealTek 8139 chips.

I've looked at http://www.yqcomputer.com/
for the source code, but am not really sure which file it is in.

Does anyone know which file it is in, or even if it is in Darwin at all?


BTW how do you download Darwin? All i've ever seen is a whole heap
of individual files to download. Is there a single download for the
entire Darwin OS?

thanks,

Dale

You might try looking at < http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ; instead of Apple's
Darwin site. From there you can download ISO images and browse CVS.

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,



I don't think that kext is open source. I might be wrong, though.

the source for that KEXT is not available. Apple only releases a
binary-only version.

Yes, we have a 7.2.1 release. I'm currently working on putting together 7.5.1,
which will be a support release for 7.2.1, meaning you will be able to update
from 7.2.1 to 7.5.1.

Coming back to the realtek drivers. Not only we don't have the source,
furthermore Apple only releases a thin version, so it's only available for ppc.
