Hi, all those far more knowledgeable than myself :P.

I've got an athlon64 running on a gigabyte GAK-8NS Pro mobo (the rest
of the hardware is largely immaterial, GeForce MX 4k card, sata on the
motherboard and so on) . Now, amd64 being, uh, amd64,  I want this
machine to be nice and fast - so gentoo is naturally my OS of choice
:). The mobo has a Marvel 8001 1000baseT onboard nic, which the livecd
powers by skge, whiich is the module - yay - with the name of my nic in
it in make menuconfig, Marvel / Yukon / and so on. Great, I hear you
ask. what's wrong?

Well....it doesn't work. The kernel on the livecd - 2005.0 - is r3, and
I've tried gentoo r10 and r9, as well as the latest vanilla kernel.
None of them drive my nic! It gives no error message, modprobes /
insmod's cleanly, and *appears* to work. I'm not even sure how to get
error output from it, but everything is fine - route - n and so on -
apart from the fact that nothing actually happens. I've set it
to get a dhcp address - it can't send the ARP request, and, despite all
the pretty lights flicking on my switches and the nic itself. Well,
glowing in the case of the nic.

I'm not entirely sure if there is some big "WARNING: DO NOT ENABLE THIS
OR STUFF WILL BREAK" switch in the kernel that I've missed,
but...erm...I feel that way :D.  I really have tried everything I can
think of. Which isn't a lot. Sk98 isn't in the vanilla kernel - but is
in the gentoo one - and that don't work either.


And don't mention anything about pci nics! :P.

Thanks....

The sk98lin driver will be removed someday from the gentoo-kernel and be
replaced with the SKGE driver, I do suggest you compile the skge driver
instead and see if it work for your network card (sk98lin works for me).

I'm not sure what you mean with "vanilla kernel", but linux-2.6.10 and
linux-2.6.12-rc6 certainly have a CONFIG_SK98LIN configuration option.

I don't see an skge option, though.

I had the same problem.  I tried both of the kernel drivers and had the

same results; the module will load and ifconfig -a will show that the
card is there but it won't connect to squat.

All you need to do is go here:
http://www.syskonnect.com/syskonnect/suppo...102_driver.html

Download those, run the provided install script and your all done.  Oh!
You need to have both of the syskonnect drives compiled as modules
before you begin or the install script will stall.

Hope this helps!

Malcolm :)

Thank you! Very much!

I'll do that now....

And by the way, by "vanilla", I meant emerge vanilla-sources not emerge
gentoo-sources :). But you probably knew that :P


Thanks!

I have the same ethernet controller on my mb.  I built the SKGE driver as a

module, and installed hotplug and coldplug. It comes up automagicly without
any tweeking.

 I recall having a problem with the 2004.3 live cd not finding the right
driver and I had to unload the module, reload the module, and manually
ifconfig dhcp eth0 to get the network up.  With 2005.0 however everything
just worked.
