    Cool network driver

    I am trying to set up a server on a shuttle xs35 v2. Atom 1.6 D525 dual core CPU, Intel NM10 chipset, Intel GMA3150 graphics, 4g ddr3 and a 1tb 2.5" WD blue drive. Ubuntu server 10.4, 10.10 and 11.4 -64 will run but they are missing the network driver. How do I add the jmc driver for the jmc 251 10/100/1000 network card? Some desktop distros have the driver and they work well on the system. I am still trying to get my head around the linux term so please keep it simple if possible

    Re: network driver

    Hi

    To start with open a terminal and type

    Code:
    sudo lshw -c network
    Enter your password. It will not be echoed to the screen.

    Copy and paste the results of this command back into your next post between code tags like so

    [code] results [/code]

    That will make it easy to read and produce output like so

    Code:
     easy to read
    Kind regards

    Re: network driver

    Hi

    Code:
    *-- network DISABLED
    <snip>
    configuration: autonegotiate=off broadcast=yes driver=jme driverversion=1.0.7 duplex=half latency=0 link=no multycast=y es port=Mll speed+10Mbit/s
    The card is disabled but it has loaded a driver (jme) for the card. That suggests either the wrong driver is loaded or there is a bug in the driver (although it could be other things).

    What version of Ubuntu is this 11.04 or 10.10 ?

    Your wireless is disabled as well.

    Need to do some research on this one.

    Kind regards

    Re: network driver

    Hi
    11.4 amd alt-64 this time. 10.4 lts and 10.10 do the same thing. During install the network card is not detected. If you go back to add it manually it does not list the jme driver. It dose not find the wifi card as well. If I continue it sets up the computer provided I do not add any thing other than the basic install. If I choose to add ssh, mail,samba etc the install fails. I386 version will give the same error's

    Re: network driver

    Hi

    Sorry for the late response. Timezones!!!

    Have a look at this

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/851070

    I am wondering if this is affecting you as, as far as i can tell, the driver should be working (unless you have the newest cards).

    The poster built the newest driver from source. Could you do that ?

    Kind regards

    Re: network driver

    I just downloaded the driver file and printed the how to. I have managed to do a little on a desktop system in the past but with a GUI to help me navigate. I will give it a go next time I can string some time together. (A day or two) I will post the result

    Thanks

    Re: network driver

    OK I have the driver untared into a directory called jmedp1.0.8.3. I then cd /jmebp1.0.8.3
    ls , the content is there
    I then try to sudo make install and I get a no command error for make
    I try sudo apt-get install make and get a not found in repository error. I have no network to download it but I do have the instillation disk mounted

    several other basic commands I tried to use for the untar/ copy as by the instillation guide did not work and I ended up uncompressing onto a USB drive on my desktop computer, Mounting the drive and moving the content with sudo mv /xxxxx etc

    I am running out of ideas at this point.

    SO many commands to learn so many old dos commands to forget. At least that is why I started a www.air-stream.org.au free access point and am trying to set up this server, or is it a form of madness?

    thanks

    Re: network driver

    Hi

    I need to know exactly what you have tried so far.

    Can you copy and paste what you have tried from the terminal along with all the errors ?

    Kind regards

    Re: network driver

    OK
    Hard to cut/past running in a term with no GUI and not many tools working, so I installed the desktop version 10.10 amd 64. It picked up the network card and the wifi. I followed a how to and set up open ssh from a term. Rebooted and ssh in with putty. Installed samba, Apache, MySQL and P2P for luck. All inside an hour. I have an open Firefox window with the samba system and all seems to work. I now have a system with all the desktop extras that I was trying to avoid but it seems with my chosen hard wear and current skill level it may be the best for now. I hope the next version of ubuntu server x86-64 will have the driver sorted. below is the output of sudo lshw -c network for the 10.10 desktop version just for a comparison.

    Thanks for the help
