[RFE] Gigabit Ethernet card Asus NX1101 not supported by kernel
Last modified: 2008-07-18 16:45:39 EDT
Description of problem:
The Ethernet card Asus NX1101 (regular PCI card) is not supported by the current
The card provides an IC+ IP1000A LF chipset; it is reported by smolt as
"Sundance Technology Inc / IC Plus Corp IC Plus IP1000 Family Gigabit Ethernet"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 8 + online updates as of February 8, 2008.
2. Mount an Asus NX1101 Ethernet card in the system.
The Ethernet card is not „seen” by the kernel.
The Ethernet card should be seen as usual.
Is this supposed to be a Fedora 8 bug? IP1000 is already in rawhide.
It is also in 188.8.131.52-7.fc8 which has been submitted to updates-testing. The
driver is called "ipg".
I've tested the card on a functional system, with kernel-184.108.40.206-115, as
stated above. The system was official F8 + all online updates to day.
Until F9 comes out, can we please expect support for this card ?
