How would I check if there is a Ubuntu version? I really am a total Linux noon I probably should be on a simpler os

First try typing into the 'Software Center' firmware-realtek_0.43_all and then hit the "Search" button.

Failing that, try the following command;

Code:
sudo apt-cache search firmware-realtek_0.43_all
Also have a look at the following links;

https://askubuntu.com/questions/1608...e-command-line (look at the middle of page, for the graphical option)
https://askubuntu.com/questions/4477...ll-via-apt-get

What do you mean 'nothing happened'?
Did it give you any output?

Try the following;
Code:
sudo apt-cache search firmware*
Please post the output of the above command (using CODE tags).

AveryFB, please do not start multiple copies of the same issue, and then further close many of them without being clear why you've abandoned the thread. Each of those threads are now useless to any person seeking future guidance along the lines of your problem. They will find one, two, or more abandoned threads with no real feedback. This behavior also can cause frustration with your fellow LQ members who are trying to assist you with your problem.

Please continue in this thread. If you continue to solve threads and start new ones with the same issue you will just cause a lot of confusion and eventually find that the answers you receive will not be very helpful because some people will be trying to learn about your problem when they could've read up on it in the history of one thread, versus four of them.

A [code] tag is used to encapsulate code for better read ability and to separate it from your comments.

There also is a noparse BB-code which the LQ site supports, allowing someone to show the full symbols to encapsulate code.

Like so: [code][/code]

You may also put output or code within code sections using the # symbol in the advanced edit mode. To see more info about LQ BB-codes, please see the LQ BB-Code reference page here.

@AveryFB,

I cannot see the package your after from your output. I think to avoid anymore confusion, please tell us WHY you thought you needed to install this package, what info suggested you install this package, to fix your problem.

Also, what exactly is the problem your trying to solve, is it your ethernet card not working? And also please provide any links to the info that made you think, you needed this package/firmware installed.

As, without that info, I don't think your going to get the answers, your looking for.

Also post the output from the following commands;

Code:
ifconfig
and

Code:
dmesg > ~/kernellog.txt
The above command will pipe the output from dmesg to a file in your 'home' folder, called kernellog.txt
Copy and paste the contents of the file to your next post.

You should find the kernellog.txt file, in /home/averyfb/ please attach it to your next post.

Now I had a look at my installation and I DO have this file, I'm using CentOS 7. It looks like you have two ethernet interfaces being enp5s5 and enp9s0, do you know which one the realtek is?

Can you run the following command (you don't need to be root/put sudo before it);

Code:
ls -la /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8168*
I've done a google search and the file your after appears to be in the package linux-firmware (for Ubuntu).

Have a look at: https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?s...antal&arch=any

Let us know how it goes!

Now I had a look at my installation and I DO have this file, I'm using CentOS 7. It looks like you have two ethernet interfaces being enp5s5 and enp9s0, do you know which one the realtek is?

Can you run the following command (you don't need to be root/put sudo before it);

Code:
ls -la /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8168*
I've done a google search and the file your after appears to be in the package linux-firmware (for Ubuntu).

Have a look at: https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?s...antal&arch=any

Let us know how it goes!
They are both realtek. I installed a nic card because I thought that I was having a hardware issue.

Thanks for responding! If I need to do anything else just let me know.

Also I download linux-firmware_1.164.1_all.deb from the link you linked what do I do with it to install it?

EDIT: I think I installed the linux-firmware deb file via Ubuntu Software Center and nothing happened

It looks like you DO have the file your after installed. I cannot see anything in your kernel log that indicates any problems with your ethernet cards, where did it say you did not have the said firmware installed?

It said that last time I installed a OS so I just assumed Ubuntu was the same. What the heck could the problem be then?

Where did it say it, in your kernel log?

Also, is your ethernet card working now or is it still not working?
