Realtek 8139 on Debian


I had that problem quite some time ago. The network was fine in the stock kernel, but I had to rebuild the kernel to get my sound to work. This broke the ethernet, so I had one kernel with sound and one with ethernet.

The solution was to add a capability when building the kernel that really didn't seem to be necessary (to me at least). I can't remember what it was now -- I finally gave up on Debian after spending a month trying to get the printer to work after weeks of ethernet problems.

I will do some digging. In the mean time, download the live SuSe Personal disk.


Video, Sound, CDRW, Ethernet, Printer. Just remember to turn the printer on before installing.
