Ethernet Controller/ ASUS P4C800 E-Deluxe


Hi,

I just installed redhat on ASUS P4C800 E-Deluxe computer. I am trying to get the onboard 10/100/1000 ethernet working.

I downloaded procfg and procfgd from Intel and installed them:

But I do not know how it is suppose to work. I have the procfgd running.

I also enabled kudzu deamon to come up at startup. But I can't figure out how to get the interface shows up under ifconfig -a, and later config it. I used to work with SunOs 4.1.3 long time ago, now trying linux. Any input appreciated.

Tx,
BG

ifconfig -a
only shows lo:

Try disabling PNP in the bios .. linux is not PNP os and it doesn't handle some of the integrated motherboard devices .. that need PNP .

I did that earlier, but did not solve the mother board ethernet port problem.

Then try once more by disabling ethernet from the bios and boot linux .. kudzu should remove it from the device list .. now shut down .. turn of PNP and enable ethernet and boot again . .may be you will have better luck

what kernel?

what kernel are you using?

I had the same problem at first with debian stable, and had to get a new kernel to get it to work (2.6.5 at the time)

now I'm running debian sarge (testing), with kernel 2.4.25 and it does recognise the onboard gigabit controller.

in your kernel config, there is a simple statement about "intel gigabit controller" if I'm not mistaken. it's hard to miss out.
