Hello everybody,

I have a problem with ClearOS 7.1 Final. I get my network card not to ride off.

lspci -nnv but recognizes the card = /
In a VM Installs, everything works. But not on real hardware.

Does anyone have an idea or the solution to the problem?

RedHat (therefore CentOS), upstream, dropped a number of older drivers from the kernel when they released v7. Sometimes replacements exist, other times they are hard to find. Tim Burgess has a copy of the forcedeth driver here.

From what I can make out the sundance driver has been dropped by el7 so you'd need to hunt down a source for it and compile it. You could try asking ElRepo - see this post. Good luck.

    You are right that it may suggest drivers are not loaded for the D-Link card which could be an issue as I don't know where to get them from. I am not convinced a driver is loaded for the MCP61 as that would normally be the forcedeth driver. You may need to open up the "-A 3" to a higher number for the MCP61 so it lists the driver(s) available and in use.


    I found this solution to work on my NVIDIA MCP61 network;

    hy Nick,

    thank you and sorry for my late reply. The output of lspci:


    root@localhost # lspci -nnv | egrep "Eth|driver"

    I'm not good with linux. But for the onboard interface:

    A) too many drivers are loaded?
    B) maybe the wrong?

    For the D-Link, drivers are not loaded. is that correct?




    Thanks again for your help.

    The idea would have been to post some fault hunting info, say from your lspci command. To make it shorter can you post the output of
    lspci -nnv | egrep "Eth|driver"
