ATTANSIC L1 Gigabit on-board NIC not supported.


Hello,

I am running Slackware-11.0 on Asus M2N8-vmx motherboard having ATTANSIC L1 Gigabit NIC on board. My kernel is test26.s. I have installed kernel modules from /testing directorey. But NIC is not working. What is the solution? Should I recompile the kernel? Or should I use any other kernel module for the NIC?

Thanks for your help,

Anand

Indeed it is an unknown device, and you did install the modules, so the driver simply is not there. So you must install it. And I think I found the place:
http://atl1.sourceforge.net/

"Attansic L1 Gigabit Ethernet driver for Linux" ... try that. Oh, and make sure you have the kernel source installed and symlinked properly in order to build a kernel module.

I have installed kernel source. But what do you mean by 'symlinked properly'? Can you please elaborate? Please pardon my ignorance.

/usr/src/linux points to your current kernel source.

Sorry. Yeah, that's the most important one. There's also '/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build' and '/lib/modules/`uname -r`/source'. If you installed the kernel source from the slackware package, I think these should have been created properly, so don't worry too much about it.

Thanks H_TeXMeX_H and others for help. It worked after I compiled the driver from source.

Great ... did you use the vendor version or the sourceforge version ? (Either one should work fine ... just would like to know for future reference)

I used the vendor version 1.0.41.0 released on Sept 29, 2006 since it is for kernel-2.6.18. I did not try the sourceforge version.

FYI, the atl1 driver is now part of the kernel as of version 2.6.21, which was released 26 April 2007. (I realize that wouldn't help Anand with his 2.6.18 kernel, though.)
