Can you give the output of:

Thanks

Hi,

Thanks for your offer of assistance. I am a complete newbie regarding Ubuntu, and the system in question is at my customer's site about 15 minutes away (fortunately).

My customer has installed Ubuntu 10.04 on two systems, the first one successfully, the second one is having problems with the one LAN.

How do I go about getting the information you requested? I am not a programmer myself.

Thanks

Jim

Same problem here, the ethernet card works great on maverick and natty, but looks death in lucid.

Now i installed the kernel 2.6.38-020638-generic and the ethernet works.

Please mark as solved, you may also want to log a bug

DaNieL (daniele-pignedoli) said : #10

@actionparsnip: i dont think using kernel 2.6.38 is a 'solution', while the current official kernel for lucid is another one (2.6.32, if i remember right)

I suggest you log a bug stating that the newer kernel makes the chip work.

Hi DaNiel,

To be honest this all over my head. We installed Ubuntu with just the one LAN working. I thought it would be easy to add a LAN card, but it did not work. I do not know how to install drivers on Ubuntu and when I was at my customer's site none of the staff were willing to install a driver, or even go on line to see if Ubuntu would automatically recognize and install the new driver for the new LAN card. They do not want to reinstall, they say it would take too much time.

So I do not know what to do at this stage since I do not understand what I have been sent.

Thanks for your help, if you can provide a simplified plan of action for a newbie it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again for all the effort and help.

Jim

@Jim Mahoney: I used this procedure:

Ubuntu i386
wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/964512/lffl/kernel_2.6.38_i386
chmod +x kernel_2.6.38_i386
./kernel_2.6.38_i386

Ubuntu amd64
wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/964512/lffl/kernel_2.6.38_amd64
chmod +x kernel_2.6.38_amd64
./kernel_2.6.38_amd64

This will run a small shell file that will download the kernel from kernel.ubuntu.com and install them, after that, reboot and the ethernet card works perfectly (in my case it is working), without additional drivers..

But before that, i suggest you to comment the GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 into yout /etc/default/grub file, so at the startup you will be asket to choose what kernel to use: 2.6.38 could give some problems.
After edit the /etc/default/grub, run `sudo update-grub`.

p.s: if you already see the kernel list on startup, e.g. if you have a dual boot, the edit is not necessary.

DaNieL (daniele-pignedoli) said : #14

I tryed the kernel 2.35.22 and the ethernet card works fine.

Thanks. My contact that is using this motherboard has not told me if he has tried any of the solutions you have so thoughtfully provided. Thanks again for your help.

Jim
