kernel too old for the new motherboard


Two weeks ago I downloaded the current Mageia 5 xfce ISO to install on a Intel H1110 d motherboard, with an I3 and 4g of ddr4 ram.

The install went well.

Well almost went well. It appears, through asking in the Mageia irc, that the 3.19.8 kernel is too old to detect ethernet device on the Intel H1110 D, so NO ethernet device can not be found.

Before you ask I'm posting this through a laptop.

I have three of the four kernels, the one I need is the non free kernel.... can someone, please, can point me in the right direction for it?

What I need is step by step instructions on how to install the latest kernel(s?) and how to point my desktop at kernel, and thus connect the desktop to the net.

Edit to add. At this stage the kernels are sitting in this windoze laptop, so I need to know where to deposit the Kernels too.

Not an answer to your question per se, but did you consider trying the Mageia 6 STA1 image?

In terms of the question, what do you mean that you have the kernels? Do you have the kernel source, a .rpm file of the newer Mageia kernels, or something else entirely?

1/ I didn't/don't know if I have the skills to troubleshoot an RC

2/ It never crossed my mind.

I figured this was a reinstall due a forced motherboard replacement, which gave me 5+ minute boot times.

From advice given in the irc the kernels sitting in this laptop are

kernel-desktop-4.4.16-1.mga5-1.1.mga5.x86_64.rpm
kernel-desktop-latest-4.4.16-1.5mga.x86_64.rpm
kernel-firmware-20150722-1.mga5.noarch.rpm
kernel-firmware-nonfree-20160712-1.mga5.firmware.noarch.rpm

OH, in that case you should just be able to transfer them to a usb key, then mount the key (should be able to do as user) and (as root)
Code:
rpm -ivh *.rpm
in the directory that those files are in and if there are no other dependencies, it'll install the kernels, register the kernels, and update grub so that when you reboot the kernel will be available to select.

Timothy Miller thanks for your help.

Alas using your code gave me dependancy conflicts, so I bit the bullet, downloaded, and installed, Mageia 6.

Yes it connects my desktop to the net and installs easily.

However Mageia 6 has, decided an hour ago, not to no longer give me a desktop.

The problem of no desktop is outside the scope of this thread. As is my impression of Mageia 6, but lets just say I'll be heading elsewhere (once I recover the data I put on the Hdd).

Once again thanks Timothy Miller.
