    Thumbs down Upgrade from 42.1 to 42.2 network fail

    Upgraded from 42.1 to 42.2 but it fails while trying to access the online repositories during the upgrade

    It loads the driver for the rtl8111/8168/8411 which seems to be functional under 42.1

    I am unable to do any form of upgrade or install on the Intel boards I have with this built in Ethernet device. Help these motherboards are my primary desktops which i use for teaching programming/

    Thought you were doing a net install. Hard to look over your shoulder


    Be sure that the kernel firmware package is installed. Think it should be on the DVD. I believe that is the WiFi but could be wrong does hard wiring to Ethernet port work? If so maybe check packman for drivers

    Ok, the board does not support wifi, its a hard wired Ethernet that does not work, I am at a loss as to how to download drivers if it cant connect to the internet. The upgrade from 13.2 to 42.1 worked without any problems at all. The issue seems to be in the driver or the update process.

    Really cant get it to work and I have been doing this since version 6.2 or so.


    The driver simply does not work with the new kernel, it would seem at least.

    What information would be helpful and how should I collect it?

    I tried a clean install and the network interface would not work, went back 42.1

    Thanks for talking to me about this, I appreciate your response and hope we can find a solution.
