Description Nadav Kavalerchik 2008-01-23 16:04:49 EST
Description of problem:
i have a new gigabyte motherboard with onboard RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit
Ethernet controller. the kernel loads the r8169 module BUT i am
unable to use the network interface. no errors, nothing. all seams fine but i am
unable to use the interface :-(

i removed the r8169 module from memory and...

after downloading the r8168 sources from realtek, compiling and installing all
works fine.

could you add this module pre-compiled in the next kernel version ?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Expected results:
have the r8168 module as part of the kernel's modules

Additional info:
direct link to r8168 sources (at realtek)

Fedora 6 is no longer supported. Please try Fedora 7 or 8.

i know you don't support fc6 :-)

it works great for me as is. we are in the middle os the school year so i can
not update just now... maybe in the summer time.

just suggested you see if you can add this useful module to your new kernels for
fc7 / fc8 / devel 

Nadav :-)
