New Realtek-Network driver for AROS, new Bounty for Realtek ALC888
Franck Charlet has published a new Network driver which supports different Network-controller made by Realtek:
  • RTL8168b / RTL8168c / RTL8168cp
  • RTL8169 / RTL8169s / RTL8169sb / RTL8169sc
  • RTL8110 / RTL8110s / RTL8110sb / RTL8110sc
  • RTL8111b / RTL8111c / RTL8111cp
  • RTL8100e
  • RTL8101e

The driver also complies with conditions of the Realtek RTL8111b bounty which was started by Pascal Papara to get drivers for the Network-controller of the planned AROS complete system AresOne.

Bevause Frank Charlet does not want to make a draft on the donations, the money will be used for a new bounty: A driver for the Soundchip Realtek ALC888 - which is the last component that still is not supported by AROS for the AresOne. (cg) (Translation: (dr)
