    Question Problems with Intel Pro/1000 and OpenSUSE 11

    Just finished my install of 11.0 this afternoon, and now I am needing some help getting my network connection working.

    I have the following hardware:

    SuperMicro X7DAL-E Motherboard (Intel 5000X chipset)
    2 Intel e5410 Xeon Processors
    12gb DDR2 FB-DIMMs
    nVidia GeForce 7600GT
    etc.
    etc.

    The motherboard uses Intel's 82563EB network interfaces, and YaST shows the following device:
    80003ES2LAN Gigabit Ethernet Controller (Copper)

    It also indicates;
    Drivers:
    Active: Yes
    modprobe: Yes

    Modules:
    modprobe e1000e

    Under Network Settings in YaST, it lists the device as Not connected (though it is) and the following message:

    "Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly caused by missing firmware (for wlan devices)"


    Has anyone had success with getting this network controller working? Any help would be great. Keep in mind that I am relatively new to SUSE.

    Thx

    Check /var/log/messages for any messages starting with or containing e1000e or e1000. Post them here.

    Run this command as su in konsole;

    Code:
    cat /var/log/messages |grep e1000e
    and

    Code:
    cat /var/log/messages |grep e1000

    This is a long shot, as su in konsole run ;

    rmmod e1000
    modprobe e1000 eeprom_bad_csum_allow=0

    lsmod to see if you've loaded e1000 or e1000e and adjust the above command accordingly.
