no network. Kernel driver et131x needed

Post#1 by sqlerror » 20 May 2013, 00:17

The Porteus kiosk does not find my onboard NIc, the full version of Porteus does connect fine using the same machine:


01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Agere Systems ET-131x PCI-E Ethernet Controller (rev 03)
Subsystem: Agere Systems ET-131x PCI-E Ethernet Controller
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16
Memory at fd600000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable)
[virtual] Expansion ROM at fdd00000 [disabled]
Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2
Capabilities: [48] Express Endpoint, MSI 00
Capabilities: [5c] MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
Capabilities: [100] Advanced Error Reporting
Capabilities: [130] Virtual Channel
Capabilities: [14c] Device Serial Number xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx
Kernel driver in use: et131x
How to modify the Kiosk iso to get the NIC working with the et131x driver?

hi sqlerror,

et131x currently is in the 'staging' area of the kernel which means that is not fully ready yet. we want stability in kiosk edition but after some thinking i may do an exception just for a network drivers which are crucial for kiosk (cripped driver is better than no driver).

will release kiosk 2.0.3 (with NIC drivers from staging) once i complete all items from my TODO list for kiosk. probably next week.

thanks for the bug report.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
