Thread: How to install network driver r8168.rpm without internet connection?

    Default How to install network driver r8168.rpm without internet connection?

    Nice to meet you. sorry strange english.
    I encountered a bug that the tablet stylus did not work with qt on ubuntu, which made using ubuntu difficult for me who used a stylus instead of a mouse.
    https://github.com/linuxwacom/xf86-i...acom/issues/93

    Even kdeneon is based on ubuntu's lts, ​​so even if I wanted to use plasmadesktop, I was worried that there was only windows because a tablet stylus could not be used. Fortunately, I found opensuse.
    I installed leap immediately, but there was a problem.
    My motherboard seems to use the realtek r8168 driver, but it doesn't work at all right after installation. The network card itself has not been detected.
    Then I downloaded r8168.rpm to install the driver. If i try to install, yast2 and discover can not be installed because they can not be updated. This is the output from inix.
    Device-1: Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express
    Gigabit Ethernet driver: r8169
    How can I run the r8168,,r8169? driver without a network cable? I have to leap because I want to use cuda with blender.
    Currently I am writing from tumbleweed, but all nvidia cuda installation on tumbleweed failed.

    here failed instlation.
    wget http://developer.download.nvidia.com...3.01_linux.run
    sudo sh ./cuda_10.2.89_440.33.01_linux.run --override
    local-10.2.89-440.33.01-1.0-1.x86_64.rpmsudo zypper refreshsudo zypper install -y cuda

    Default AW: How to install network driver r8168.rpm without internet connection?

    Please post:
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 net
    Also post:
    Code:
    uname -a
    Code:
    zypper se -si kernel
    The r8169 driver is the driver in the kernel and do not need to install.

    The r8168 (and the r8168-blacklist-r8169)driver is the driver build by sources of Realtek and can be used, but when the r8169 is working, no use of r8168.

    However, after installing leap, the network card is not detected and the settings cannot be configured in Network Manager. Even with a cable connection, no network is found. why? =(

    IMO your most likely failure cause is that your network port is disabled during installation,
    I've found that an inactive port can cause unpredictable problems.

    Is there a reason why you aren't connected to a network?

    In the past, even if I don't have a network available, I've plugged a cable connected to an active hub (total cost about $6 US) into the RJ-45 port just to activate the port (green light).
    Even if networking is not used during installation, it makes the network card install.

    Since you're describing a tablet,
    I'm even curious how you're installing the image on the tablet, is there a way to install off a USB port or some other external media?
    From your questions, I'm assuming that you're not writing a pre-built image to PROM.

    We need the Infos from Leap 15.1, not Tumbleweed.

    You can save them on a Stick and post it via Tumbleweed here.

    Hmm. I'm a bit tired because I have to repeat the installation many times.
    Can this be fixed by enabling a network connection even if i cannot connect during installation?
    I want to try but install and restart and install again and set up. ugh. I'm sorry. Maybe do it.

    Aside. It wasn't just a graphics-related issue because there were many software that couldn't be operated on a graphics tablet.
    However, if ubuntu 19.10 does not come with a fix for qt 14.1, it can not be helped. It was nice to find opensuse.
    There's a lot of fun when you use a tablet instead of a mouse. for dtm. for video edit. of-cause It's fun to draw images. =)

    if Leap 15.2 uses version earlier than qt5.12.4.There is no problem with leap,
    but if it becomes version of qt5.12.4, the best solution is tumbleweed because software that can not be completely operated with a tablet stylus occurs.
    I'm just starting to worry about whether to use leap or tumbleweed. Sorry for posting many times.
