MCP73 Ethernet under Ubuntu Hardy is dead?
i just installed Ubuntu Hardy on a Packard Bell Imax x8030 desktop. The ethernet device uses the chipset MCP73 from Nvidia. The device is correctly seen from the system, however it generates no traffic, is unable to ping anything - is dead. It doesn't ever increment the TX packets or error counters, so actually nothing goes in or out of this controller. I checked with modprobe to see if the nforcedeth module was loaded and it was, so I`ve no clue on how to get this to work.
I'm using kernel 2.6.24-12-generic. Should I compile something manually? Or just wait for ubuntu programmers to fix this?
Thanks everybody! Andrea
