Re: Abit AV8 Gigabit Ethernet

I'm using several Abit AV8 and KV8-Pro systems (nearly identical), some with dual boot setups. I haven't faced any issues so far. I never cared much for discover though, I just have the module via-velocity listed in /etc/modules. Discover does have several issues. Granted - it's a great idea to make things easier in some cases and for many new users, but it's very little trouble going around it when it fails.

i'm using dual boot in this machine, linux under a custom 2.6.11 kernel and if i'm in linux and reboot under windows the network card gets detected again under another phantom network connection that well does nothing, i need to turn off my machine and then go to windows, So it's like the hardware isn't getting their resources free o something like that i don't know, pasing the noapic parm to kernel once worked but as i get more use of it discovered it was just pure look. So there something still wrong in there with via-velocity cause my old and trusty realtek never gived me that kind of problems

The module is the via_velocity, the Debian AMD64 installer has this
module on it though it won't autodetect it. I can't remember if I
modprobed it before or after the base install. It is a buggy module
under 2.6.8 however, I would recommend upgrading to to a later kernel as
soon as possible. It works flawlessly under 2.6.10
