(SOLVED) no dedicated PHY driver found for PHY ID 0x01001002
« on: December 28, 2020, 10:52:29 PM »
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 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

discuss why some kernels appear to work and others seem to have left the r8169 code completely out

The kernel team may do that if the driver is old and presents a security risk.

The polling driver for the SD card reader in my HP laptop (which also happens to be a realtek) was dropped, and I had to compile a kernel from source to specifically add that driver if I wanted to read/write a card greater than 2GB. I do not recall if the card reader worked with live sessions. Almost a full kernel version later, a new driver from realtek showed up.

Doesn't really explain why you have networking with live session, but not an install. I don't know how the installer goes about determining if a driver should be added to the initramfs and how all that gets built.
I am tired of talk that comes to nothing.

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
