RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit module is missing from kernel
Last modified: 2008-01-24 11:07:45 EST
Description of problem:
i have a new gigabyte motherboard with onboard RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit
Ethernet controller. the 188.8.131.52-42.fc6 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
could you add this module pre-compiled in the next kernel version ?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
have the r8168 module as part of the kernel's modules
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
