no eth0 dragora


Hello I have just installed dragora on a computer that i don't use and wicd doesn't detect my wired connection. I tried ifconfig -a ans i only get the lo interface. Is it because my mother board is not compatible ? I'm not used to linux and i would be gratefull if somebody could help me. Thanks un advance

Hey CoureurDesBois,

I am unfamiliar with dragora, but the output of ifconfig suggests your ethernet adapter is not being recognized. Have you looked at the output of :

Code:
lspci | grep net
... to see what the hardware is ?

Cheers.

Hello and welcome to LQ.
(not worded well)
There is no wrong linux to try but I may have suggested a more mainstream type of distro.

Hey again CoureurDesBois,

jefro's comment made me look up dragora ... On top of not being one of the more common distros, it is one of those distros that is strictly "free", in the GNU sense of the word. It is based on the linux-libre kernel and almost certainly includes exclusively free open-source components .. including firmware.

Let's see what your ethernet hardware is (my previous post) and go from there ...

Wasn't trying to jump over your correct statement about lspci (maybe lsusb too).

It is the correct starting point.

I was pondering what I might suggest to a first time user. Not sure I'd have suggested that choice. Still, not a wrong choice.

Hey jefro,

Actually your post was quite relevant and if it wasn't clear in my follow-up post, I absolutely agree with you. The dragora distro may be so restrictive in its adherence to the "libre" philosophy (no criticism intended), that it may exclude firmware required for certain hardware to function because it is proprietary or not 100% open-source.

Thanks, as always, for your input - let's see what the OP comes back with.

Cheers :-)

Try
Code:
dmesg|grep Network
. This will show you if your kernel recognised the device.

When I do it on my machine, I get:
[ 0.448445] e1000e: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Driver - 3.2.6-k
[ 0.740231] e1000e 0000:00:19.0 eth0: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection

Try: modprobe e1000e (or maybe/doubtfully, just e1000)

lspci -v | grep -Ein 'ethernet|unknown'
Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection I217-V (rev 05)
Subsystem: Super Micro Computer Inc: Unknown device 153b
