    Default [realtek driver r8169] impossible to obtain dchp lease...

    Greetings !!

    I did the error to upgrade to 42.2 and now...

    + I can't connect using ethernet cable (working on another leap 42.2 computer) with a realtek integrated card using r8169 driver.

    dhclient -v eth0 gives: DHCPNAK

    I'm pretty sure that driver is in the current kernels (and as far as I know in previous ones as well) so maybe you should update to 42.3. My ethernet runs on that and I've never had to compile or set up anything it just works. Check if the module is loaded with
    Code:
     sudo lsmod | grep 8169
    .

    If it is loaded then check in Yast2>System>Network Settings and see if youe ethernet connection shows up there.

    Have you installed the r8168 driver?
    Code:
    zypper se -si r8168
    Code:
    grep -i 'blacklist r8169' /etc/modprobe.d/*

    How did you perform the upgrade ?
    Any 'home:/' or 'devel' repos involved ?

    I upgraded using the usb image iso from the LEAP 42.2 DVD... nothing went wrong during the upgrade.
    The updates were done straight after using the wifi interface (sloooooow ^^).

    I installed the 0010-r8168-8.045.08 driver from realtek... I still receive some DHCPNAK messages in return of DHCPREQUESTs

    r8169 has been set out and replaced by r8168... but still no dhcp working.
    all the three other computers (two in 42.2 and the last in 13.2 could connect using ethernet interface) dhcp server can handle computers from 192.168.0.3 to 192.168.0.13 range with IP reservations for four computers including this one having a buggy ethernet interface.

    Something strange my ANTARES server, running on 42.2 is using the r8169 driver on one of the two realtek cards I have in ^^
    I'm looking to see which card is set to eth0 that could receive an ip address using DHCP with the r8169 driver...
    As I set ANTARES in runlevel 3... I can not remember where I could see which interface is linked with eth0...



    Code:
    lsmod | grep r8169
    returns nothing as the ./autorun.sh script did the necessary to replace r8169 by r8168...
    Code:
    zypper lr
    lists repos related to 42.2 and packman is linked with

    Why not installing an r8168.rpm?????
    Than you can revert it also.....

    Post:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep r 816
    also post as I wrote:
    Code:
    grep -i 'blacklist r8169' /etc/modprobe.d/*
    And do not write something, only post it.

    Use Code-Tags.

    Hey, my Ethernet is working with the r8169 Module.
    I will not help you when you are doing what you think.

    So no paste on susepaste, do it here in the Forum using Code-Tags, the # on Top.

    And answer the questions, nothing else.
