Has anyone used the ASUS P5GD2 deluxe motherboard?
I set one up over the weekend and am working through several problems that I have encountered.
The primary problem is getting the onboard NIC to work with FC3. This board has a Marvell Yukon 88E8053 Gigabit Ethernet on board as well as a wireless G interface. Prior to getting this mother board I had checked and it looked like FC3 included drivers for the gigabit interface. sk98lin.ko. However after loading FC3 the system did not recognize the interface. I can see it via lspci but modprobe does not see it. I tried insmod to load the driver directly which it did but it did not associate itself with the hardware.
I did find a refrence to using the latest driver from the http://www.syskonnect.com
web site. In the process of trying to build that driver. Have managed to get the package onto the system but am working through the building process. Seems that they want the kernel sources for the build. I had thought the header files were included and the sources would not be needed but that does not appear to be how this driver install is working.
And even with the kernel sources installe the driver install is still complaining that it can't find the header files. Seems to want them under /usr/src/linux directory.
But before I spend more cycles chasing that down has anyone else used this motherboard and have the gigabit interface working under FC3?
