Due to the shortcomings of the current Realtek 81xx Hackintosh drivers (such as lack of or limited support of 8111E, 32/64-bit, sleep issues), I endeavored to port the Linux RTL81xx driver to OS X.
RealtekRTL81xx.kext is the result of this work, and it fully supports the RTL8168/RTL8111 family of NICs.
After weeks of coding, compiling, rebooting and debugging this, I can proudly say that it's now ready for prime time !

After considering the Alternatives for separating the OS X users' home directories, I decided to use a separate partition.
In this post, I'll explain in detail how to use a separate partition ("Volume" in Mac OS X parlance) for /Users.
Most OS X installations you'll find, probably use just one partition per disk. This may be convenient, but coming from years on Unix/Linux, that's a no-go for me... We can do better...
So, let's see how we can get the users' home directories on a separate partition ("Volume" in Mac OS X parlance) or disk.
