dear masters of the universe,
still striking out on getting my m3n78-em boards nic chipset to work with lmce. i tried the latest suggestion which was to reinstall the i386 dvd and, post install, go straight to recovery mode and run the entries to add the r8168 module to the system and reboot. tried that route and failed again.
here's my setup
mobo: asus m3n78-em
cpu: amd phenom 8750 64 bit quad 4
memory : 8 gigs ddr2 1066
2 sata3 hard drives, one for op system, one for media
6000 series nvidia pci card
2 lite-on litescribe dvd r/rw
things to note on install:
- probing the bios portion of install takes a long time, result is some kind of failure but text on screen says this issue is harmless.
- i do not get to final screen post install that tells you to remove disk and reboot. install freezes at point where there is a flashing cursor at top left of screen, but nothing else, cannot eject disk. had to restart pc to get disk out. when letting it load normally however, it does reach the avwizard and i can set up the pc.
- in watching the system boot in recovery mode, when it says "mounting local filesystems" displays a red [fail] result. this however does not stop the system from booting.
- also get message that apparmor failed to boot properly.
from there i can run through the avwizard and through the initial setup. but without an internet connection its not work it. without the onboard nic working i can't use this setup as a core/hybrid, which was the intention all along.
If anyone has any ideas as to what to try next, please let me know. I've been stuck here for 3 weeks now and am about to dump the board and try another one. i don't want to b/c the capability of this board is big, i think.
thanks in advance for any tips,
