i1000 module does not work with EtherExpress Pro 8490TX+
Last modified: 2013-07-02 22:06:02 EDT
Description of Problem:
The i1000 Ethernet driver module that is included with the kernel doesn't work
with the Intel EtherExpress Pro 8490TX+
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Easily. We were working with a Tyan TigerMPX S2466N board.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install the 8490TX
2. boot machine
3. insmod the i1000 module and attempt to use device
We were able to recompile the module from the Kernel Source and it worked.
Should be fixed in current release. You mean "e1000" not "i1000".
> You mean "e1000" not "i1000".
Yes, indeed. I have no idea why "e" changed itself to "i". :-) Sorry.
Thanks. I will recheck when I will have again an access that that
hardware combination but I have a feeling, based on use of more up-to-date
drivers, that you are correct.
