View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ethernet on mac mini 3.1 doesn't work

October 20th, 2010, 07:22 PM

Recently I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick x86-64 on Mac mini 3.1, as a second operation system (1st is MacOS 10.6). Everything was working fine, but recently without any visible reason the ethernet stopped working (but working on OsX, so it is not a hardware problem). Wireless works fine on both systems.

I have no idea how to localise the problem.

Please, could someone suggest me something at least to diagnose it? Thank you very much

This suggests the ethernet card is recognized:

lspci | grep Ethernet
Ethernet controller: nVidia Corporation MCP79 Ethernet (rev b1)
