Default Re: is nForce MCP61 supported in Linux?


I have an AsRock K8NF6G-VSTA mother board (with Sempron 3000+), chipset MCP61 and onboard lan Realtek PHY RTL8201CL (10de:03ef), but it's not recognized with ubuntu (now feisty 7.04, but before I tried with 6.10). I've updated the BIOS (now running 1.5). I've installed the following kernel: 2.6.18 (did not boot), 2.6.19 y 2.6.20 (default with Feisty), without success. I get this error in dmesg:

[ 13.922917] forcedeth.c: Reverse Engineered nForce ethernet driver. Version 0.59.
[ 14.718393] PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:07.0 to 64
[ 14.718403] forcedeth: using HIGHDMA
[ 14.720121] 0000:00:07.0: open: Could not find a valid PHY.
[ 14.720132] ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:00:07.0 disabled
[ 14.720139] forcedeth: probe of 0000:00:07.0 failed with error -12

I've also tried to compile and install latest version of forcedeth (0.60), boot with several parameters like NOAPIC NOLAPIC ACPI=off irqpoll, pci=routeirq, acpi=noirq, ... and I got always same result.

I've read about problems with sound and graphics, but I just want this box to act as a server, so I don't need them, but ethernet is of course necessary...

¿Can anybody help me? Those who managed to get this mobo working, which version of BIOS, kernel and forcedeth do you have?
