Trying to set up a Shuttle X27D as a diskless MD.
The core is running 0710, and has this one as a second NIC, working out of the box
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 01)
Subsystem: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 21
I/O ports at e800 [size=256]
Memory at febff000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]
Expansion ROM at febc0000 [disabled] [size=128K]
Capabilities: <access denied>
When I try to PXE boot my MD, it boots off the core allright, up to a point where it says to first see the NIC as a RTL8168b/8111b, and later on drops the link as r8169....
See picture attached.
During boot of the MD it clearly shows 8111B/8111C
I've also booted the MD from Kubuntu 0710 live cd.
Strange enough the system recognizes the NIC, but fails to configure with dhcp. Whenever I try to manually set the IP, mask and gateway the system responds with something like wrong gateway...
It defaults back to 192.169....
I've also tried adding a USB NIC (Linksys 200M), this gets recognised and receives IP from dhcp without any problem at all, unfortunately it doesn't seem to support PXE booting... (tested with Kubuntu 710 live cd)
I found the wiki article on how to add support for unrecognized NIC, but am not sure how to proceed...
In case I would temporarily add an hd to the MD, is there any way to install LinuxMCE from DVD, disable the core and have it act as an MD only - and then make an image or move the install to the core...
Any help appreciated!
