    Re: Qualcomm Atheros Bigfoot Killer E2200 Ethernet working in linux

    It's weird. For me since we got to 3.5.0-24 I need to reboot it for it to work propperly.

    I would recommend you install only the ethernet drivers (alx), anyway by running:

    scripts/driver-select alx

    Then doing make clean, make, and sudo make install. This is my current configuration with kernel 3.5.0-25 (just updated today) and the only oddity is that I need to reboot just after the sudo make install step because for some reason the sudo modprobe alx does not make the ethernet work, even if it, of course, loads the module.

    I attach my hwinfo so you see if you can use it for something:

    Thank you for your answer. Unfortunately it didn't worked. I also updated the kernel to 3.5.0-25, but still I have the same issues

    Edit: I just saw that indeed they changed something in the kernel 3.5.0-24 for the Atheros cards as one may see here... but I don't understand the changes.

    Let's troubleshoot. What is your device?
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep 0200
    Does the new alx cover your device?
    Code:
    modinfo alx
    Does the ethernet start if you simply load the module?
    Code:
    sudo modprobe alx
    ifconfig
    Is there an error or warning in the message logs?
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e alx -e eth0
    Thanks.

    Ok, let's do it

    Atheros Communications Inc. Device [1969:e091]
    However, we see no e091 or, more properly E091 here:
    alias: pci:v00001969d00001090sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias: pci:v00001969d00001091sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias: pci:v00001969d00002062sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias: pci:v00001969d00002060sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias: pci:v00001969d00001083sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias: pci:v00001969d00001073sv*sd*bc*sc*i*

    alias: pci:v00001969d00001063sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    I think you'll need to patch and then compile compat-wireless as outlined in post #1. I've examined the patch and your device is covered.
    #define ALX_DEV_ID_AR8161 0x1091 /* l1f */
    #define ALX_DEV_ID_AR8162 0x1090 /* l2f */
    +#define ALX_DEV_ID_E2200 0xe091 /* l1f */

    #define ALX_REV_ID_AR8152_V1_0 0xc0
    #define ALX_REV_ID_AR8152_V1_1 0xc1
    #define ALX_REV_ID_AR8152_V2_0 0xc0
    Please post back if you need additional guidance.

    Re: Qualcomm Atheros Bigfoot Killer E2200 Ethernet working in linux

    Thank you very much! It worked! I dont really understand why, because I already did everything in post #1 with the kernel 3.5.0-23. I guess those drivers where somehow overwritten with the new kernel?

    Note: I had to reboot to be able to load the module, as was stated in post #51

    That's always the case with drivers compiled from source code. They are built for your currently running kernel only. When a newer kernel, also known as linux-image, is installed, re-compile:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/compat-wireless-version-whatever
    ./scripts/driver-select restore
    ./scripts/driver-select alx
    sudo su
    make clean
    make
    make install
    modprobe alx
    exit
    The linux-backports-modules-cw package includes alx but it likewise doesn't cover your device 1969:e091.

    Re: Qualcomm Atheros Bigfoot Killer E2200 Ethernet working in linux

    Im having trouble putting in the line of code i typed in


    tar -xvf /path/to/compat-wireless-2012-05-10-p.tar.bz2
    where the path was my home folder and it untared it then i get stuck because the second line after that says there is no such directory.
    Can anyone explain it to me I'm sort of new to this

    So, if I am correct, you did:
    Code:
    tar -xvf /home/operez002/compat-wireless-2012-05-10-p.tar.bz2
    ...or whatever your user name is? If you need to recover the exact command, please do in a terminal:
    Code:
    history | grep tar
    The pipe symbol | is on the right side of my US keyboard on the same key with \.

    That command means, roughly, list the last thousand or so commands I've issued. The pipe symbol means roughly, pipe the results through another command; in this case grep, which looks for a pattern, in this case 'tar.' So any commands you issued using the word tar will be shown.

    Once we know where the file is located, we can change directories into it:
    Code:
    cd /wherever/compat-wireless-2012-05-10-p
    And then we can proceed with the remaining steps.
    I'm sort of new to this
    All of us were new at one time; even Linus and me. No worries.
