Mandriva 2008 Support Atheros(R) L2 Fast Ethernet Adapter


Kali ini pada kesempatan ini hari minggu,03/30/2008 04:28 PM saya dapat
mengaktifkan NIC Onboard tersebut dengan menggunakan DriverLinux untuk LAN
yang ada pada CD bawaan dengan petunjuk seperti terurai di file readme di
folder LinuxDrivers/Lan/Attansic/l2-linux-v1.0.40.4. sebagai berikut:

1. Move the base driver tar file to the directory of your choice. For

  • example, use /home/username/atl2 or /usr/local/src/atl2.

2. Untar/unzip archive:

  • tar zxf atl2-x.x.x.tar.gz

3. Change to the driver src directory:

  • cd atl2-x.x.x/src/

4. Compile the driver module:

  • make install

The binary will be installed as:
#/lib/modules//kernel/drivers/net/atl2.[k]o
/lib/modules/2.6.22.9-desktop586-1mdv/kernel/drivers/net/atl2

5. Install the module:

  • insmod atl2.ko

6. Assign an IP address to the interface by entering the following, where
x is the interface number:

  • ifconfig ethx netmask 255.255.255.0

7. Verify that the interface works. Enter the following, where
is the IP address for another machine on the same subnet as
the interface that is being tested:

  • ping

Demikian, semoga memberikan banyak manfaat bagi kita semua
