I,ve tried to install Mandriva 2006.0 on my Dell Dimension 9150.
It seems that the Intel PRO/1000 network adapter (chip 82573L on motherboard) is not recognised at all by Mandriva 2006. The network interface (PCI Express)works like a dream with XP Home Edition but is not recognized by Mandriva 2006 Club edition or Power pack edition.
ifconfig lists one interface - lo
ifconfig -a lists two interfaces - lo and sit0
(No eth0 nor eth1 can be fond with if config)
I belive that the linux native driver is e1000
modinfo e1000 finds the module but it is not present in /etc/modules for boot time loading
Handware scan (harddrake) finds the network adapter but no kernel module is associated with it.
What am I supposed to do - older similar threads (dated 2004) of the knowledge base give a straight answer - Buy another network adapter. Is that so still in the year 2006? Which adapter do You recommend for 100 Mbit LAN?
All the best P_Ko
