Default is nForce MCP61 supported in Linux?

Is there any Linux drivers planned for the nForce MCP61 (NVIDIA GeForce 6100 GPU + NVIDIA nForce 405). It's a GPU motherboard solution: http://www.nvidia.com/page/gpu_mobo.html

I've been able to install the SATA drive with the sata_nv driver but I can't get the sound and network to work. I went to http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_nforce_1.11.html
and it says that nforce components are supported in Linux but it's not. The forcedeth module doesn't work on this new chipset. Any suggestion?

I have the same board, there is nothing we can do until nVidia releases some new drivers by the looks of it.

All that is needed for MCP61 support in forcedeth is to add the following anywhere in the section that starts with "/* it should add in pci_ids.h */":
##########
#ifndef PCI_DEVICE_ID_NVIDIA_NVENET_16
#define PCI_DEVICE_ID_NVIDIA_NVENET_16 0x03E5
#endif
#ifndef PCI_DEVICE_ID_NVIDIA_NVENET_17
#define PCI_DEVICE_ID_NVIDIA_NVENET_17 0x03E6
#endif
#ifndef PCI_DEVICE_ID_NVIDIA_NVENET_18
#define PCI_DEVICE_ID_NVIDIA_NVENET_18 0x03EE
#endif
#ifndef PCI_DEVICE_ID_NVIDIA_NVENET_19
#define PCI_DEVICE_ID_NVIDIA_NVENET_19 0x03EF
#endif
##########

A future driver update will include this change as well.

Thanks,
Lonni

Great! Thanks a lot.

What about the soundcard, IDE (for DMA), AGP and the other features of the MCP61?

MCP61 isn't an AGP chipset, so I'm not sure what you mean there. If you're referring to the IGP, the next released NVIDIA X driver will support MCP61.

As for sound support, see the URL that you posted initially.

Thanks,
Lonni

Sorry, I meant IGP. I'm glad to know that it will be included into the next NVIDIA X drivers.

As for the audio I tried the intel8x0 and hda_intel without success. I think it doesn't recognise the PCI IDs. I googled a bit and it seems that some kernel patched are available for te pci id. Am I on the right track?

If you could post the output from lspci that might provide some clues on which audio chipset your particular MCP61 motherboard is using.

Thanks,

I'm WAY new to linux, but Ive installed Fedora 5 Core DVD, then from a terminal, ive run the following

yum install kernel kernel-devel

I have the file forcedeth.c from that file in the OP URL, after I add the lines you mentioned, what do I do with the file?

Great, I managed to have the sata, network and ide dma work perfectly, The only thing left is the soundcard. As you requested, here is the output of lspci:
let me know if you also need the output of lspci -v

Thanks again!
