Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 467659
No support for Asus NX1101 Gigabit network cards in kernel
Last modified: 2008-10-24 08:31:00 EDT
Description of problem:
Please add support for these network cards in kernel - this chipset is now present in some very popular network cards, such as the Asus NX1101:
Sundance Technology Inc / IC Plus Corp IC Plus IP1000 Family Gigabit Ethernet
Here the complete smolt profile of a machine I've recently tested on CentOS 5.2, but the situation is the same in Fedora (I've tested on Fedora 9 too):
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This should be supported by the ipg driver.
Please attach a dmesg from the failing fedora kernel.
(In reply to comment #2)
> Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
> Kernel 2.6.18-102.el5.r8169.9
That's not a Fedora kernel. It's a Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernel.
Supported in Fedora 9 and rawhide (Fedora 10)
Yes, I'm able to confirm that it's supported now in Fedora (I've not tested for awhile).
Here's the smolt profile of a machine that succesfully runs such a card:
and the relevant output of lspci -vvv:

Please, is there any plan to include this in RHEL/CentOS ?
