    Re: Installing sk98lin driver

    Hello everyone !

    I have the same issue here.

    I managed to upgrade my Ubuntu server 10.04 to 12.04 and apply the solution of foresto.
    (Thanks to you by the way )

    But I still lost my PCI-E Ethernet card ! Yeah this is very weird. Sometime my eth0 disappear ...

    Running on my server I have a script which pings every 3 minutes a monitoring server. When the issue comes my server can't ping my monitoring anymore, but when I try to ssh I managed to connect to my server. Then I can't see my PCI-E Ethernet card (not in lspci, not in lshw).
    When I'm reboot my server, the eth0 "wake up" again and work for some time.

    I was thinking it's a driver issue but obviously it's more ? Sk89lin doesn't work better than sky2 at first look.

    In attachement a part of my SYSLOG. According to my monitoring system my server stop pings at 14:09, but i can't see anything.

    If someone has any idea ?


    *sorry for the bad English this is not my main language.
