Re: ethernet card not detected in fedora 14
I think Vinay should have asked a more detailed question,
This is your ethernet device as recognized on the PCI bus, but we would like to see the specific model ID AND any drivers that have claimed the device.
00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82579V Gigabit Network Connection (rev 04)
is recommended. Feel free to post just the portion related to the i82579.
I *think* your device will have the PCI.ID of [8086:1503]. IF that's the case then the correct driver is the e1000e driver, but you need a newer version of that driver.
In the latest F14 kernel ( 184.108.40.206-91.fc14.x86_64) the e1000e does NOT support this device.
In the installation kernel for F15 (220.127.116.11-26.rc1.c15) the e1000e DOES support the [8086:1503] device.
Your alternatives are to install F15, or to use F14 with a newer kernel.
For F14 you could load a kernel from the 'koji' development project. Of course you will first need to somehow download the rpm and use 'yum localinstall kernel-....rpm'
