Marvell Yukon 88E8050 ethernet interface not supported
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:21 EST
Description of problem:
The Marvell Yukon 88E8050 PCI Express 1.0a gigabit ethernet interface is not
supported on RHEL 4 Update 2. This hardware is included in the Intel 915GRV
Please try the test kernels here:
These contain the new upstream skge and sky2 drivers. I think your hardware
is covered by sky2, which is not yet mainstream. However, please do report on
whether or not it works for you, and any problems you might observe...thanks!
kernel-smp-2.6.9-22.3.EL.jwltest.76 does work. Ethernet device appears as normal.
Cool! Can you confirm that you are using the sky2 (and not skge) driver?
Yes. I'm using the sky2 module. Thanks!
