Description of problem:
The kernel does not recognize my ethernet adapter.
kudzu determines the adapter as:
desc: "Marvell Technology Group Ltd. Fast Ethernet Controller"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.9-6.37 EL i686
Steps to Reproduce:
boot the system
Actual Results: no device installed. I have tried to compile the driver from marvell.com,
but it does not evencompile. After some changes it compiles,
but modprobe does not install the device.
Expected Results: eth0
System: toshiba tecra 3a.
no workaround found.
Also the screen is not recognized, but worarounf exists
The device is not supported in RHEL, and (i.e. because) it is not supported
upstream. If/when Marvell/SysKonnect gets its driver supported upstream, we
will most likely take it into RHEL.
However, you may be in luck. I maintain a driver disk development kit,
An update version of the sk98lin driver (which supports the device you are
using) is included as an example. Using the kit, you should be able to
construct a Driver Update Disk. The DUD can then be used to re-install RHEL
using "linux dd" as the installation command.
Good luck! Feel free to contact me directly for issues w/ ddiskit. However,
please be aware that the driver itself is explicitly unsupported.
