I have used this adapter for this sort of problem:

Thanks Chuck.

It's strange that it can't even find the Ethernet controller.

When I do a 'setup' from the command prompt to look at the network settings,
it's not there. If I attach the TrendNet Ethernet dongle and reboot and go
back into setup, it sees that one but not the built-in one. And for some
strange reason with DHCP or static IP the system will not continue to load.

I would assume (maybe a bad idea) that the ACID distro on the site is the
latest and hasn't been updated in a while?
I downloaded it a few months ago when I was building 27616. Maybe I need to
d/l the latest version.

Thanks for your help.

I use the D510MO board and it does have one PCI slot.  It also installs fine
with the ACID.iso using DHCP.  No Ethernet issues with the built in
Ethernet.

Thanks for all your help Doug however, the Atom D510 MB does not have any
PCI slots.

Maybe I'll have to find a Linksys dongle.

   I can only speak from my problems with some of my atom 230 330 D410
boards all having similar issues as the NIC chip is newer than CentOS can
accurately identify. It sees it and uses the wrong driver. It is an issue
with other distro's I have messed with too.

   The Linksys route has always fixed it up... You may be able to
temporarily plug a PCI NIC into the empty slot ( I assume there is one as
there is on most Atoms) by removing the shield... Maybe better luck that
way...

Well.....That didn't work.

Seems the Linksys device is discontinued at Staples. Stopped by the local
Rad-Shack and got a TrendNet TU2-ET100.

Tried a fresh install of Acid and same story.

If I do the interactive startup and don't start firstboot and local I can go
in at the command prompt and configure the adapter using setup, the system
does see it. If I do a DHCP or static IP address, I get the same result.

I have verified that the adapter works and my Ethernet cable is good.

I'm just stuck.


Thanks!

Steve;
I would suspect you need a lot of support files to do the make that are not
on the computer to compile it..

The quickest fix I found for Atom boards that do not have ethernet chips
that are recognized by the CentOS install is to buy a Linksys USB ethernet
dongle from your local staples, best buy or whatever and plug it in. CentOS
recognizes it and after you finish the build, your on-board will also be
recognized. You can then remove the usb and configure the on-board as
needed.. It is a $30.00 fix but if you play in Linux, it is not unusual the
new motherboards have network chipsets that will be supported but many times
are not in the installation CD's..

Your alternate plan is install all the build resources needed to be able to
run make... but that will probably require a working network connection to
download all that :-) You  can bring them all in via usb thumb drive or
such.. but I think the usb network device will get the job done most
painlessly !! Albeit at addition hardware cost.

I'm installing a new node (27727) onto a new PC. I thought I would try a
Shuttle XS35-704. Nice little machine with the 1.66 Atom processor, 2GB ram
and 320GB HDD.

Using the ISO I used to build node 27616, I run the setup on the new
machine.

When it got to the first reboot, it indicated that it did not have internet
connectivity and could not continue.

Used interactive startup and didn't load 'firstboot' and 'local' so I could
get a prompt. Logged in as root and run setup to take a look at the network
settings. Low and behold the network card was not there.

After many hours searching the internet for answers for loading drivers from
the command prompt, I was able to find the driver for the built-in NIC. A
JMC260 PCI Express Fast Ethernet Controller.

Of course, I found many suggestions on how to load this driver however, I'm
not having any luck.

I downloaded the driver JME-1.0.7.1.tbz2 and did the following:

# tar xjvf jme-1.0.7.1.tbz2     ;worked fine, no problem.


Changed to the directory where the decompression took place and then

# make install     ;this is where it failed. I get the following error:

make: *** /lib2/modules/2.6.18-194.el5/build: No such file or directory.
Stop.
make: *** [all] Error 2


Would this be a result of not having a complete install of the OS at this
stage?


Looking for some insight on how to install this driver.


BTW, prior to installing the Acid ISO, I had installed the XIPPR ISO
'xosipt_20100518_1438.iso' and the network card worked fine. I wanted to
evaluate the XIPPR before installing ACID.



Thanks!
