Hello, 

Snakeoil doesn't seem to see my usb ethernet card (Asix AX88772 chip). Is there a way you can include driver in Snakeoil or maybe there is something I can do to use it ?

Thanks

You're the first person who successfully booted Snakeoil with a Mac before.  Thumbs Up Try this kernel and let me know how it goes? https://www.snakeoil-os.net/forums/thread-128.html

Ah, that means you'd need a 32 bit kernel. I'd see if I can do that later tonight (approx 12 hours from time of this post).

Yeah, Snakeoil OS is a very streamlined OS using a custom kernel with a lot of drivers stripped out. Hence only the most common hardware are supported and anything else will require other custom kernels. This is the reason why ifconfig didn't show up anything as the driver for your USB Ethernet is not included in the stock Snakeoil kernel.

sorry I said '386 CPU' I meant regular PC machine, my CPU is an i7 6600U so a 64 bits machine

Thanks for your help  Wink

But are you using the Snakeoil OS 64 bit? If yes, then the above kernel mentioned should work. Update to that kernel and let me know how it goes. Cheers.
