Default GeForce 7025 / Nforce 630a + CentOS 5 = No LAN

I just bought an Abit AN-M2 nview and immediately tried to install CentOS 5, but when it booted up it did not find the NIC. I tried

insmod forcedeth

Which didn't complain, but I still have no NIC. Any ideas or suggestions?

Checked centos website and it looks that it ships with 2.6.18 kernel. As GF7025/7050/630a chipset is fairly new, as old kernel as that probably doesn't recognize newer revision of the integrated NIC.

I did a little digging and it seems the PCI IDs for the NIC appeared somewhere in the neighborhood of 2.6.20

So the solutions seems to be to compile a newer kernel or backport forcedeth.c

Neither of which is trivial, so for the moment I am using the USB NIC that was plugged into my TIVO.

Now that I have a network connection I can try to load the nvidia graphics drivers ... which isn't working, but I will save that for another thread

Check out this thread:

I have not tried it. I decided to switch over to fedora 7 which supports the 7025 (including sound and lan) out of the box.
