Description of Problem:
Intel's newest Gigabit Ethernet cards are the PRO/1000xT. The pci id is as
01:0c.0 Class 0200: 8086:1008 (rev 02)
01:0c.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation: Unknown device 1008 (rev 02)
The RC1 e1000 driver does not detect this card.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Unfortionatly, it's not THAT simple ;)
Intel uses the PCI ID to set an Adapter->MacType variable, which in turn
determines how the physical interface is programmed. Most likely, this device
resembles another one already in that list.
All is simple if the chip is a 82543GC and this is trivial to add; if the chip
is a 82542 then Intel needs to get involved for information.
Could you check which chip this board/device has ?
This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
This defect is *now* considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax.
We are waiting for Intel
We have a driver and permission to ship it, now we just need
to review and integrate (as long as we are satisfied, of
course) the driver.
reviewed and integrated last night;
will get a kernel with it to Dell today
Installed on new 1500SC. Kudzu picked up and identified the LOM correctly and
inserted the e1000 module.
