ethernet interface detected as fibre channel


on debian 6
Code:
# ethtool eth0
Settings for eth0:
	Supported ports: [ TP MII ]
	Supported link modes:   10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 
	                        100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 
	Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
	Advertised link modes:  10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 
	                        100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 
	Advertised pause frame use: No
	Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
	Link partner advertised link modes:  10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 
	                                     100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 
	Link partner advertised pause frame use: No
	Link partner advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
	Speed: 100Mb/s
	Duplex: Full
	Port: MII
	PHYAD: 0
	Transceiver: internal
	Auto-negotiation: on
	Supports Wake-on: pumbg
	Wake-on: g
	Current message level: 0x00000033 (51)
	Link detected: yes
but on OpenSUSE 11.1

Code:
# ethtool eth0
Settings for eth0:
	Supported ports: [ FIBRE ]
	Supported link modes:   1000baseT/Full 
	Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
	Advertised link modes:  Not reported
	Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
	Speed: 1000Mb/s
	Duplex: Full
	Port: FIBRE
	PHYAD: 0
	Transceiver: internal
	Auto-negotiation: on
	Supports Wake-on: pumbg
	Wake-on: g
	Current message level: 0x00000033 (51)
	Link detected: no
and because of this I could not get IP with dhclient for eth0 on OpenSUSE 11.1. How do I solve this?

To be sure of my guess, you'd have to ls the device. eth0 is not proof that you are talking about the same nic.

One some boards there is some support left over for either other card models or upgrades but the full chipset is not onboard. This is what I am suspecting.

Suse, and OpenSuse offer more enterprise level drivers and that could be why it thinks what I suggest. The nic you desire is not included while a more high end or part of is found on motherboard.


It could be that you have to blacklist a driver in OpenSuse and get the correct one working too.

not sure what you meant by "ls the device" but here is the diff of lsmod output of on debian 6 (left) and opensuse 11.1 (right)

From a rough guess it looks like you are using a realtek

To get more then see lspci | grep Network on each.

ethtool eth0


If ethtool complains then try mii-tool -v
