<SOLVED> Intel Sandy Bridge - no network device found
« on: November 18, 2011, 10:00:07 pm »
Hello,
tried the Zentyal Installation with a Intel Sandy Bridge Motherboard, but it has problems with networking.
No device is recogniced.
After that i tried the Installation with a normal Ubuntu Server 10.04.03. The Installation was fine, but no networking here too.
I think, that it could be a driver problem.

Any hints or solution ?

I recommend you to ask in the Ubuntu forums, as this does not seem to be a problem specific with Zentyal but a general Ubuntu one.

My solution so far:

1) http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/  visited and the newest Natty Kernel picked (v2.6.39-rc4-natty)

2) Download following packages:

    linux-image-2.6.39-020639rc4-generic_2.6.39-020639rc4.201104191410_amd64.deb

    linux-headers-2.6.39-020639rc4_2.6.39-020639rc4.201104191410_all.deb

    linux-headers-2.6.39-020639rc4-generic_2.6.39-020639rc4.201104191410_amd64.deb

copy them on an usbstick.

Installation:
dpkg -i linux-headers-2.6.39-020639rc4_2.6.39-020639rc4.201104191410_all.deb
dpkg -i linux-headers-2.6.39-020639rc4-generic_2.6.39-020639rc4.201104191410_amd64.deb
dpkg -i linux-image-2.6.39-020639rc4-generic_2.6.39-020639rc4.201104191410_amd64.deb

try:
modprobe e1000e
dhclient

automatic:
nano /etc/modules
e1000e

change:
nano /etc/network/interfaces
# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

@Calvo:
Dont understand why this should be an ubuntu problem, because anyone who has an Intel Sandy Bridge Board will have this problem !
Or would you say, Intel Sandy Bridge is not supported by zentyal ?

So far i see, it has to do with the old kernel from 10.04 LTS Ubuntu

Zentyal is not an operating system. Its a software package installed upon Ubuntu server. For any hardware related stuff (especialy drivers) you should look at Ubuntu.
Seems reasonable to me.

Cheers.

You are right with that, BUT Zentyal has InstallationCDs too and at the moment they are complete useless for Intel SandyBridge Users.

So, iam quite astonished that a wide spread Hardwareplatform like Sandy Bridge is not supported by Zentyal-InstallationCDs at the moment !

The installation CD that Zentyal provides is just a remastering of the Ubuntu installation CD including the Zentyal packages and a set of additional ones to provide a friendly environment (lxde, firefox, etc), but we can't be in charge of the hardware support. Until we release a Zentyal 2.3 Installer based on the new Ubuntu 12.04, I suppose the best option for Sandy Bridge users is to install the new kernel version manually as you said.
