asus nx 1101
« on: September 05, 2013, 10:25:32 pm »
Hello.
I have been following MCE for about 2 years.  I tried to install dlink dge 530T but had no luck.  I finally bought a asus nx 1101 thinking it might work in 10.04, thinking it worked in previous versions.  I am experiencing the same issue with it as with the dlink card.  When i do a lspci -v the internal nic says it's a realtek 8101E irq 25 kernel driver r8169.  The asus card says realtek 8169 irq 16 kernel driver r8169.  when i ifconfig i see eth0, eth0:1 and lo.  I'm not very linux literate.  Can someone assist me - this has been the limiting factor for me getting deaper into mce.
thanks in advance
Mike

possibly using the same 8169 driver is the problem?

You may want to try installing Kubuntu 12.04, and grabbing the latest installer to install the 12.04 alpha, to see if this will solve your problem.

Code: [Select]
apt-get install subversion
svn co http://svn.linuxmce.org/svn/trunk/src/new-installer
cd new-installer
./mce-install.sh

The r8169 driver has been a problem for a long time.  Realtek is kinda dutty with linux.  I am having issues with my realtek soundcard at the moment.  The drivers always need some stupid tweak.  For me the tweak breaks linuxmce 1204.  :(  anyway for your situation try the r8168 driver.  and blacklist the 8169 driver.  this will most likely break something but its worth a shot.  I would first try and blacklist the r8169 driver and reboot.  Then try what is below.


# download driver for r8168, and unpack
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...&getdown=false

# go to driver location
cd r8168-8.020.00/
sudo rmmod r8169
sudo mv /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/net/r8169.ko ~/r8169.ko.backup
make clean modules
sudo make install
sudo depmod -a
sudo insmod ./src/r8168.ko
sudo mv /initrd.img ~/initrd.img.backup
sudo mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img-`uname -r` `uname -r`
sudo echo "r8168" >> sudo /etc/modules
lspci -v
sudo reboot

Solution to all of this: Get an Intel NIC. :)

Sorry for the delay in responding. 

tschak909 and posde, thanks for your suggestions.  I will keep these solutions as backup plans.  I would like to volunteer to co-ordinate the hardware compatiblity section of the site.  If possible, can u tell me how best to go about it.

Crumble, I haven't had time to try your solution.  I will tomorrow.  I started out with a dlink dge-530T and then the asus card, and both have the same issue.  Thanks for the suggestion.

Mike

I second what posde says!  Drop into #linuxmce on Freenode IRC!  Jump on in and make it happen!

I had that card in my Core for years, it worked out of the box - through 7.10 and 8.10.  I may still have it in my 10.04 core, I will have to check when I get home - I am away right now

Crumble, the link for the driver on my computer brings me to an oriental page
