8168, 8.015.00, D945GCLF2
I have a D945GCLF2 motherboard with the intel atom chip and can't replace the onboard NIC as I need the single PCI slot for an SATA controller.
Geppi's original driver was freezing up on me.
My first attempt at virtualizing on OpenSolaris brought me to this thread:http://opensolaris.org/jive/thread.jspa ... eID=427574
It turned out I needed ESXi to virtualize windows though, which brought me here.
From the first one, I recalled that some problems were introduced on r8168 chips because the solaris driver incorrectly identified some r8168 chps as on a PCI bus rather than on a PCI express bus.
It turns out that Realtek introduced another driver version today on their download site and diffs against the previous (8.014.000) version indicated some pci-e language.
Attached is a tarfile including:
- The 8.015.000 driver from realtek's website
- Patch files to re-introduce Geppi's changes
- An oem.tgz file that I used on my system
The driver loaded, but I haven't had time to let it run yet.
Geppi's ahci mods are not included.
