    gzip: stdin: decompression OK, trailing garbage ignored
    I did get this error un-tarring the package. That's a delayed error from an earlier file in the package with "trailing garbage" (whatever that is). In my case, at least, the module still compiled and installed successfully.

    It doesn't inspire great confidence in the vendor's package, I know. But it seems to work.

    For what it's worth, the hardware support pages indicate that the problem with the ethernet port has been resolved with UNR 9.10 (Karmic). I haven't tried it myself, yet.

    I should probably have added that if you compile the driver, you'll have to re-compile with each kernel upgrade.

    I just installed 8.04 LTS and the NIC worked fine after the first boot and has been working just dandy...

    Compile, install, and load the module. From the command line, go to the directory where you saved the package and issue these commands:

    Code:
    tar -xvzf AR81Family-linux-v1.0.0.10.tar.gz
    cd src
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo modprobe atl1e
    Hmmm, I'm running into a problem:

    Code:
    hugh@Aspire:~/tmp/src$ sudo make install
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.28-15-generic/build SUBDIRS=/home/hugh/tmp/src modules
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.28-15-generic'

    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.28-15-generic'
    # remove all old versions of the driver
    find /lib/modules/2.6.28-15-generic -name atl1e.ko -exec rm -f {} \; || true
    find /lib/modules/2.6.28-15-generic -name atl1e.ko.gz -exec rm -f {} \; || true
    install -D -m 644 atl1e.ko /lib/modules/2.6.28-15-generic/kernel/drivers/net/atl1e/atl1e.ko

    install -D -m 644 atl1e.7.gz /usr/share/man/man7/atl1e.7.gz

    Did you try running the modprobe anyway? I think I got an error too and it worked anyway.

    Re: Ethernet not functioning

    Oh, rock! This has been fixed in 10.04. I just tried the Alpha 3 of Lucid on a Live Flash and both wired and wireless worked!

    Question Makefile:118: *** Compiler not found. Stop.

    I get the following error for both
    make
    sudo make install
    "Makefile:118: *** Compiler not found. Stop."

    Anyone knows how to fix this without working network interface?

    Code:
    sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /media/external -o uid=1000,gid=100,utf8,dmask=027,fmask=137
    sudo ln -sf /media/external /cdrom
    sudo apt-cdrom -m add
    sudo apt-get -f install
    Fixed my errors.

    wittrup, very nice. And thank you for sharing your solution. That kind of follow-up helps make these forums so useful.

    I got his error as well. The commands you posted subsequently didn't work for me - can you explain what you were doing, exactly?
