Can someone point me in the direction of how to compile in support for a RealTek 8168B Gigabit NIC. Apparently it uses the r1000.ko module
Then I will need to make the mods to get PLUTOHOME script to install them when doing a diskless Media Director install.
On the way toward trying to remedy this I have compiled a new linux-image package and hit something I am unfamiliar and not spent time researching just yet. When I boot to the new file the console says the following:
mount: unknown filesystem type `devfs`
umount: devfs not mounted
setting ntfsserver 192.168.80.1
not loading ethernet modules, root not set to /dev/nfs
etc . . . until the kernel panic
So far it looks like the initrd file compiled different that original.
The original from a previous MD install after gzip | cpio process:
dcerouter_6290:~/core2# file ./initrd.img-188.8.131.52-pluto-1-686
./initrd.img-184.108.40.206-pluto-1-686: ASCII cpio archive (SVR4 with no CRC)
The new compiled one is not gzipped !!!:
/usr/pluto/diskless/120/boot/initrd.img-220.127.116.11-pluto-1-686: Linux Compressed ROM File System data, little endian size 5931008 version #2 sorted_dirs CRC 0x4d676f30, edition 0, 3404 blocks, 386 files
Apparently there is a switch I did not set while compiling.
