MCP55 with Ubuntu 12.04

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Relevant thread: http://www.overclock.net/t/508176/how-to-asus-p5n32-e-sli-plus-with-linux/0_100

I am trying to get the mcp55 to work on ubuntu 12.04 without any success:thinking: Ubuntu is always working but not on my old crappy computer that i am about to sell....Is there any chance of help? It would be very good.

I have done what is written but in ubuntu 12.04 there is no options in /etc/modprobe.d/ so i just created an options.config like this:

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/options.config

and then pasted the lines

#nVIDIA Corporation MCP55 Ethernet
options forcedeth msi=0 msix=0

saved and then

sudo update-initramfs -u

but after reboot there is no difference...redface.gif Has there come up some new solution that is simple or should i install an old ubuntu and see if it works?

Does it work if you do "rmmod forcedeth" and then "modprobe forcedeth msi=0 msix=0"?
If answer is yes, then check for "/etc/modprobe.conf", if that file exists, check that it has include for "/etc/modprobe.d/*"
If answer is no, then you have a different problem. Do you perhaps need to install firmware? (i'm just blindly guessing here, but it's common problem in some distros)
Also, ",conf" not ".config" biggrin.gif (not wrong, just annoying)
Also, you might want to give more meaningful names to your /etc/modprobe.d/ files, like forcedeth.conf, so you can find it easier in a year when you might need it.

I just ran into what seems to be the same issue on my machine with a 780i sli mb. My Arch install used to recognize the to eth ports as eth0 and eth1 respectively. Now they have changed and no longer show up with "ifconfig".

Try the following:

1. # ip link set enp0s17 up

2. # dhcpcd enp0s17

I admittedly don't know much about the new net link interface ( "ip" command ). If "enp0s17" is not the new name of your interface check out "man ip".

Hope it helps wink.gif
