P5GC-MX/1333 and Atheros L2 NIC

Hi. I have installed SuSE 11 on a computer with motherboard Asus P5GC-MX/1333 and Atheros L2 NIC. Previously I’ve had a SuSE 10.3, and I’ve installed driver for LAN correctly and it worked fine.

Now, under Suse 11, I can’t compile it and I get ERROR 2 (I have kernel-source and kernel-headers, make, gcc, gcc++ installed…).

Now, that same NIC does not want to work with SuSE 11 and it worked with SuSE 10.3.

Are there any known problems with the drivers?

Are you using the latest version? Apparently Chris Snook at Redhat is working on the driver:

Index of /csnook/atl2

Followup: Apparently the atl2 packages are in the repos, so you may not have to compile after all. Do:

zypper search atl2

It’s unclear whether the ATL2 drivers are now open source. A page claiming that they had not been freed up may be out of date. Anyway all yours now. Let us know how it goes.

Worked just fine. Installed and configured… Tnx a lot!.

Now I have another problem…After doing update, I got an error stating “Could not start kdeinit4. Check your installation”.>:(:’(

Trying to find workaround…

You’d better start a new thread for that problem.

Reinstalled SuSE 11. Problem is with update of KDE 4.0 with KDE 4.1.x.

Update mixes files of both version and then you can’t start X.

Don’t add additional repos for online update except those which are checked by default.
I have done complete update after reinstal and everything is fine with updating from default repos.

Driver for ATL2 comes with update and configures it self.

At the end, all problems are solved.

TNX guys. You’re great:good:


I’ve a problem with this Atheros, when I typing:

insmod /lib/modules/ speed=100 duplex=0 autoreg=0

it’s that kind of error:

insmod: error inserting ‘/lib/modules/’ -1 invalid module format

any idea what’s wrong?
