Network cards not recognized


Hi. I am doing a new install on an ASUS P5N32-SLI motherboard with a dual core xeon. According to ASUS's website the NIC is the "NVIDIA nForce® 590 SLI™ built-in dual Gigabit/ MAC with external Marvell PHY Support NVIDIA DualNet® technology". The board was made in 2009, so there should be support for the device.

lspci -v gives me this about it:

My kernel config has:
Quote:
livecd linux # cat .config | grep FORCEDETH
CONFIG_FORCEDETH=y
In fact, I have every NIC driver and PHY driver enabled and it still isn't being seen by ifconfig.

What am I missing?

Edit: Disabling msi with the msi=0 and msix=0 switches has no effect.

Try "ifconfig -a" and see if there is your interface. Maybe the interface is just down and you need to bring it up with "ifup iface" or "ifconfig iface up". What distribution are you using ?

Trying ifconfig eth0 up or eth1 up resulted in a device not found error. I looked through the dmesg output and found that udev was renaming the interfaces with rather odd names. I don't know why, but using those names works fine. I'm marking this as solved.
