Hi all,

I have a problem that I cant find a solution to.
I have just upgraded the motherboard in my server running Ubuntu 8.04 x64 from a Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 rev3.3 to a GA-965P-DS3P rev2.0.

All seems fine apart from my network card in that the onboard Marvell 8056 does not work or is not enabled for some reason.

I'm stuck on how to enable it.

Could someone please assist me with enabling it?

I'm pretty sure it should have drivers for it already.

Thanks all.

I had a similar problem with a Marvell Yukon ethernet adaptor, managed to get it working for a while using the drivers from here:

http://www.marvell.com/drivers/driverDisplay.do?driverId=204

Problem is that I got it to connect to one LAN (my home one), but now it won't accept either manual or DHCP'd addresses from any other LAN (most annoying).

Give it a whirl, your mileage may vary (and by the sounds of it you have little to use ;) ).

Let me know how you get on, I'd be interested to know - thanks.

you could try see if ubuntu havent allrdy found it but it's turned off
try
sudo ifconfig
look on what devices that are up. probely your old one is up
then try
sudo ifconfig -a
this will show all network cards that your machine has found
and if you found something new
sudo ifconfig eth9 up
and away you go

Further to this, can I ask how or where do I specify to always bring this interface up at boot?

Thanks again.

I downloaded the Marvell driver from the Marvell site yesterday, but I was unsure of the install process. Do I need to compile the code from source or is there an included script for installing into ubuntu x64 server?

Did you get any issues installing?

Thanks.

Thanks mate, this worked a charm.
My new card showed up as eth1 and I was able to enable it and configure it to come up at boot.

Thanks guys for your advice.

Hi all,

I'm having a strange problem with my networking on my server which I seem unable to solve.
Thanks for helping me getting my networking going again, but the only problem is now I seem unable to run apt-get or ping anything outside my network.

I noticed the problem when I tried to run 'apt-get update' and got this output:
