Thread: Issue with e1000

  1. Issue with e1000

    Hi,

    I've been trying 2.6.27 and 2.6.27.2, and I haven't been able to use
    the e1000 module.

    I let my system handle the networking, Network Manager in Fedora 9,
    but I also tried this:
    ifup eth0
    Device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.

    The module is not loaded automatically so I'm loading it myself,
    nothing happens.

    I'm also trying this:
    modprobe e1000 debug=16

    I see nothing special:
    Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Driver - version 7.3.20-k3-NAPI
    Copyright (c) 1999-2006 Intel Corporation.

    Am I missing something?

    Perhaps your device is new enough to be PCI-express, and as such needs
    the new e1000e driver? I would advise to have both drivers enabled or
    modular, so you can try which one works.
    (It is true that the e1000 driver attached to some PCIe hardware in the
    past, this has been changed)

    Depending which hardware you have, you may need to use e1000e instead.
