    Breezy uses skge which is the new open source driver meant to replace sk98lin. It supports some Yukons and not others. If you want to check whether it works get the Colony 4 livecd for Breezy and try it out.....

    Would it be worth it to just go and buy a PCI network card? Sounds like it may be less of a hassle x_x

    Re: Howto: Yukon/Marvell Gigabit network card

    Well i restored the sk98lin driver to the source tree and compiled it and installed it as a kernel package and it's working flawlessly...........but it broke my ipw2200 wireless NIC. Any idea what this means

    ~$ dmesg | grep ipw2200
    [4294694.444000] ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Driver, 1.0.6

    Re: Howto: Yukon/Marvell Gigabit network card

    Found this

    Firmware files fail to load even if installed
    In some kernel configurations (users have most frequently reported the problem only with 2.6.9), the default timeout value for the hotplug subsystem is too low. You may have this problem if you see the following in your kernel log (via dmesg or /var/log/messages):

    ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Driver, 1.0.1
    ipw2200: Copyright(c) 2003-2004 Intel Corporation
    ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection
    ipw2200: ipw-2.2-boot.fw load failed: Reason -2
    ipw2200: Unable to load firmware: 0xFFFFFFFE
    ipw2200: failed to register network device
    ipw2200: probe of 0000:00:0b.0 failed with error -5

    To work around this, you can increase the default timeout value:

    echo 100 > /sys/class/firmware/timeout

    and then reload the ipw2200 module. If this corrects your problem, you may wish to add the above line to your system startup scripts prior to the point at which the driver module would be loaded.

    The other most common reason for getting the above error is that the firmware files are not installed in the correct location. Please see the INSTALL document for information on installing the firmware files.

    Is there any possibility for sk98lin to get into breezy? I got an Asus v6800v Notebook here, and skge didn't work for me. Unlike in Ubuntu Hoary (or debian etch, which uses sk98lin), i didn't get any traffic through in Breezy.

    linux-*-restricted-modules would be imho a nice place for sk98lin. So theres a fallback for these cards, which will not work in Breezy right now.

    Code:
    root@deepblue:/home/sven # lspci|grep net
    0000:03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. Yukon Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Base-T Adapter (rev 13)
    root@deepblue:/home/sven # uname -a
    Linux deepblue 2.6.10-5-386 #1 Thu Sep 8 06:18:41 UTC 2005 i686 GNU/Linux
    root@deepblue:/home/sven # lsmod|grep sk
    sk98lin               149216  0
