Let's see what we can do about it ;-)

Please tell me more about the hardware you are using.
Any information may be useful.

Please use /sbin/lspci to get a list of all pci devices recognized by your system.
Maybe there is a sound/lan chip on board, that is just a little bit difficult to use.

Another thing you could do is to download Knoppix and to give Knoppix a chance to detect all the hardware. Maybe there is just a kernel module missing in FC2.

best wishes meanwhile,
Martin

Thumbs up

Thats for the hardware outside the mother board:

Western Digital Raptor 74GB (10000 RMP)
Western Digital Caviar SE 250GB (7200 RMP)
Plextor PX- 712A
Gigabyte (Nvidia GeForce PCX 5750)


For the onboard devices:

Marvel Yukon 88E8053 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller
ASUS 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Adapter (Which doesnít really give me much detail)
C-Media 9880

I guess thatís all the information need about my hardware. At least I am glad somebody answered my post.

Btw, Knoppix was one of my first tries and it gave me the same results. And i tried the "sbin/lspci" but the system had no response

It's an Intel 925X chipset-based board, ICH6 southbridge. Very new. I'd be surprised to find a lot of Linux support at this early date. I. have an accquaintance with an Intel brand 925 board and it won't load/run Xandros either.

I'm sitting in the same boat, please report back if you have any success with these NICs!!

From what I can see its two different (?) gigabit nics on that board:

- Marvell 88E8001-LKJ Gigabit NIC
- Marvell 88E8053-NNC gigabit NIC.

There is a driver for the 88E8053 one on the ASUS site, I have tried that but it does not compile with my kernel 2.6.8 :(, I get:

CC [M] /tmp/skge.o
/tmp/skge.c: In function `sk98lin_init_device':
/tmp/skge.c:395: error: structure has no member named `last_stats'
/tmp/skge.c:536: error: structure has no member named `last_stats'

Its true that when i try to insall the driver, i also have a problems but as i remember mine is linked to kernel headers and some version incompatibility....

I also have this board and can not get the Wi-fi going, I have tried to use driver loader from http://www.linuxant.com/ this product allows the windows XP drivers to be used with Linux and suits the MARVELL Wi-Fi adaptor on the ASUS board. I have loaded the driver but now have the problem where the PC hangs when I try to use the WI-FI. I am using Fedora Core 2 so I would be interested to learn if someone has got this working.

Hi All,

I have successfully setup both of the gigabit ethernet interfaces on the ASUS P5AD2 motherboard running RedHat Fedore Core 2. I Used the driver distributed by the chipset manufacturer SysKonnect. It's available here:

http://www.syskonnect.com/syskonnect...sk9e21_lin.htm

Note: When you go to install the driver as per their instructions, boot into Fedora using the smp kernel from GRUB because for some reason the driver doesnt work with the UP one - it crashed when I tried to bring up the interfaces. The driver works perfectly with the SMP kernel that installed with Fedora Core 2. I used the "User Installation Mode" as per the README file thats packaged with the driver. Also - make sure /sbin is included in your path as their install script uses some binaries in there to install the driver module!

Good Luck,
George Murdocca

Gday,

It's been months since ive installed this driver, but heres a few tips.

1. You need the 'kernel source' installed first. To do this, read the fedora release notes (default home page in firefox) and do a search for 'kernel source' read it and follow the steps.

2. You need to read the README file contained in the driver you downloaded for the NIC at the link in my previous post

3. make sure you do the above 2 steps as root including root's environment - type "su -" to do this, then start at step 1 above.

Have a go and post some specific problems for further help.

Cheers,
George
