Intel 82574L onboard ethernet

Skyking,

Got the SYS-5015A with the X7SPE-HF-D525 motherboard in it still having the same issue loading network drivers.

Been away from this for a couple of months, now need to make some progress.

Skyking OH

What version of FreePBX are you installing, tried to installing the latest get the normal kicksart error then its still trying to find the NIC driver.

Might have to go back to a PC tower with Realtek NIC as i never seamed to have any problems.

How can you load a driver on a fresh install without no O/S made the driver file with the instructions on sourceforge but when the FreePBX distro get to NIC setup it wont take the driver still shows no hardware found.

Note to self, dont use mother boards with onboard NICs

Installed Unbuntu to check if NIC where any good, both working fine with the e1000e driver but the latest Distro wont install the NICs or let me install the driver manually, am I doing something wrong?

Maybe it would be something related to this known <a href=http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=6810>issue of CentOS based Linux distributions.

Now tried Centos with my motherboard and it works with the network cards, is there a problem with the FreePBX distro as it wont load or find the intel network cards.

After various installs, it seams to be the minimal install of CentOS which is giving me problems with the NIC, i have posted in the CentOS forum.

I have downloaded the newest e1000e driver and was wondering how you go about adding this to the ISO so its found on install.

If anybody has any pointers how this could be done i would be greatfull.

The distro i downloaded states it is Centos 6.5 anybody got any ideas why a normal version of centos 6.5 works with my hardware but the distro wont?

Is the freePBX distro running old drivers ? especially for network cards.

As i have today installed a fully version on CentOS 6.5 and done the conversation and the network cards fail to be recognised.

Anybody from the FreePBX team care to comment please.

We do not state anywhere its CentOS 6.5. Its the SHMZ OS 6.5 which is derived from CentOS 6.5. Please be careful with words that have trademarks such as CentOS.

Ok i will, if you feel the post is incorrect please edit?

I upgraded a stock CentOS 6.5 machine as per these instructions http://wiki.freepbx.org/display/FD/Converting+Stock+Centos+to+a+FreePBX+Distro
which broke the NIC drivers, is there a way to get SHMZ OS 6.5 to work with intels e1000e: Intel® PRO/1000 Network Driver - 2.3.2-k Driver?

Yes the e1000e has a major issue we have a special driver we include in our repos just for this bug in Enterprise Linux 6.5.

yum install kmod-e1000e

Thanks, but you need to be able to get to the command prompt to run this, is there a way to jump out of the distro install run this and then back.

Nope sorry its for after install. The bug this solves is that the box locks up after a couple hours of running.

Ok thanks, will get new hardware and find a use for this supermicro motherboard. Should have gave up on this one long before.

Use it for Debian plus lampp asterisk dadhi and freepbx ;-)-

You could also install a supported network card.

alan, thats the problem, i have purchased a Realtek nic to get the install done and then change it, but the Realtek nic isnt supported probally because its a brand new nic. I only have one slot on the motherboard which is PCIe i have got a realtek nic that works in a tower but its PCI and so want to go with a 1U case and low watt power supply.

Might have to find a USB to ethernet adaptor that works and do the install then install the newer nic driver.
