Description of problem:
installer doesn't detect network module to load for abit nv7m nforce.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: I would have expected the network card to be detected.
Unfortunately I'm not sure if the network card is supported. My understanding is
that a realtek network card (either 8129 or 8139??) should work for the nforce
chipset, but neither module would load.
Expected Results: one of the realtek drivers to support the nforce ethernet device.
Or clarity on the support of the nforce ethernet device.
Could you get lspci output for this card?
00:04.0 Ethernet Controller: nVidia Corporation: Unknown Device 01c3 (rev c2)
Well, if neither module loads, we can't really map the nForce to those drivers.
Assigning to kernel since this appears to be a nForce driver issue.
nforce ethernet isn't supported; nvidia MAY have a binary only kernel module for
it though. Most vendors however put ANOTHER ethernet chip on the motherboard
which is a 8139
