    I'm glad you got it working even if the solution is not ideal.

    You can remove the desktop by unistalling it if you want.

    As for copy and paste, maybe i should have said 'redirect the output to a file and post that'.

    Kind regards

    Re: network driver


    Thanks for helping Darren and now me. I have a Shuttle XS36V and in trying to setup 12.04 server found the exact same issues, so reading the thread has been helpful.

    Why would a live Mint 10 distro recognize the chipset properly and have no issues and Ubuntu (which Mint is sourced from), fail to provide the current drivers.

    Am I missing something here?

    Also, why does server's install not include the tools to compile code. I had to go back and install them manually. Now I'm getting make errors, so I'm sure I missed something that is a dependency for something else.

    It is hard to fix network things without a network connection to pull packages and knowledge over.

    Anyway, thanks again for the help.

    Re: network driver

    I had the same problem. Here is the way I fixed it.
    1.) download the driver from
    2.) copy the driver on an USB-Stick
    3.) put the USB-Stick in an installed ubuntu-system
    4.) mount the usb-stick "mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /mnt"
    5.) change to the directory /mnt
    6.) build the binary-files "make" maybe you have to install
    gcc (ssh root "apt-get install gcc") and
    make (ssh root "apt-get install make")
    7.) change directory (cd)
    8.) umount the usb-stick (umount /dev/sdb1)
    9.) begin to install the ubuntu-server on your host
    10) it stops with the message "can't find network adapter"
    11) go back and open a shell
    12) put your usb-stick in an usb-slot and mount it (mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /mnt)
    13) copy your driver-binaries into the lib/modules-directory
    (cp -R /mnt/jmebp /lib/modules/3.2.0-29-generic/kernel/drivers/net/
    cd /lib/modules/3.2.0-29-generic/kernel/drivers/net/
    cp jmebp/jme.ko .
    umount /dev/sdb1
    exit )
    14) now select hardware detect. It's magic "found eth0..."
