That card has had built in support into the kernel since kernel 5.1

Here is a review that talks about it working on linux

Nice RatMan    8)

That is an interesting question and I am curious where the data is retrieved from because though mine shows the following it is much much older than that.. On that date shown I took an fsarchive from another machine I was shutting down due to a power supply failure

My guess is that this is from an install from 4 years ago at least.. as a matter of fact there is a thread somewhere on here where I had my last critical failure (Perl Jam II I will find it) which would have been my actual last install .. I intend to keep it alive as long as as I am

WOW longer than that actually... time is getting away from me ... PackRat and I discuss Perl Jam I and II woes

The other side of that is where, most of us keep a separate /home, a 'new' install is really just a refresh of the OS so we can get back to our settings...  8)

A cold January night, contemplating the end of the American Republic and marveling at how much I still admire what VSIDO is whilst listening to Pink Floyd and Welcome to the Machine on GMB

Happy new year, I guess

Thanks Ratman... It turned out to be a flaky motherboard, which may have been the reason I put ti away a while back.. it was a fun couple of days

I can confirm moving to 5.4 and using the information found here confirming what version of the 5.4.28-1 kernel  worked

I used the excellent instructions found here but need to note that he left out the need to install the corresponding linux-modules-5.4.28-050428-generic modules deb to allow for the installation to work  for me it went like this

I downloaded the following deb files

I first installed the module

Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i linux-modules-5.4.28-050428-generic_5.4.28-050428.202003250833_amd64.deb
then I installed these as described on that page by move all there files you’ve just downloaded to a new folder and cd to the new folder and run:

Code: [Select]
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb
Code: [Select]
linux-headers-5.4.28-050428_5.4.28-050428.202003250833_all.deb
linux-headers-5.4.28-050428-generic_5.4.28-050428.202003250833_amd64.deb
linux-image-unsigned-5.4.28-050428-generic_5.4.28-050428.202003250833_amd64.deb
 
You can get any version of any kernel you may ever want here:

you can find all the kernel files here

I am going to keep on building from 5.4 up through 5.9 to see if any work in between

I have a PC that I have not booted into for a long time, at least 2 years

I tried to do a VSIDO install and here is where the weirdness begins .. When using the last/latest VSIDO ISO in live cd it boots fine with the realtek r8169 NIC loading and working fine. As soon as it is installed though I get the following message on boot and no network

Code: [Select]
no dedicated PHY driver found for PHY ID 0x01001002, maybe realtek.ko needs to be added to initramfs?
I have spent a couple of days trying to figure this out and I am stumped

First this is a Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4P motherboard that has the realtek r8169 as the onboard NIC and it has been flashed to its latest rom

After trying to update to newer kernels with no luck I decided to take a FSArchive of a working pc from a while back that has the 4.19 kernel, i installed it and the NIC and everything works fine. Every bit of code has been updated to the latest SID levels except the kernel

I have also installed the latest 5.9.0-5 and it fails but after reading about this all over google I think if I tried the 5.4 kernel it might work

I am now going to post two sets of data.. one of the working 4.19 kernel followed by the 5.9.0-5 that failed.. I am not necessarily looking for a solution like the good people over on Arch did here but I would like to discuss why some kernels appear to work and others seem to have left the r8169 code completely out

First set of data is from the working 4.19 kernel

I want to thank you all who stuck with this project for as long as you have..

By the end of day tomorrow, I anticipate this site will no longer exist as I have simply ran out of funds to even afford to pay a 70 dollar annual fee

I may try to run the site from my home with DDS .. not sure yet, but since there is so little traffic I am not sure anyone would notice

I do have it all backed up, the sad part is that it has always been a resource for solutions and honestly that is all I ever wanted

Cheers to you all .. I can always be reached at vastone at the gmail com

A python update about a week ago killed the editor along with several other apps.. Puddletag was one of them but it recently corrected on further updates.. I would be patient and perhaps it might correct itself with further updates. You could also just edit /home/username/.fluxbox/menu and do it all manually


The big one that is gone for me is Medit.. It too is gone now

I'm really not sure yet RatMan... That link is about all there is and I happened across it only by chance on the GMB IRC channel today... It for sure is not being advertised yet

Everything works in it.. It loads all the original layouts and all of the plugins work, I think I the only thing I had to make sure of was that libgtk3-perl was installed

For anyone who does load it and if you have a large library, it will take approximately 18-20 minutes (or more) as it is hardwriting your database after the first scan.. Just an FYI, it only happens after the initial scan
