Re: Bug#648286: ITP: r8168 -- Realtek r8168 device driver for Linux (DKMS version)
Hi Patrick, Julien
Since linux-image-3.1.0 arrived in unstable (many thanks Ben),
perhaps it would be nice if you could try it with your NIC so we learn
how well new r8169 work with your card.
Could you please provide some feedback?
Because r8168 qualifies for non-free I would like to have it there
only if none of r8169 works.
If working alternative available in newer kernels, we simply don't
need r8168 and this will suit Ben.
Thanks for http://code.google.com/p/r8168/ which seems to be right
upstream home page which I wasn't aware of.
I don't have problematic NIC so just like Andreas I can only test the
package but not the driver.
