Little bit of a novice here when it comes to linux and Slax (you are warned).
The past few days i have been trying to get a cabled network connection working using a zotac mini pc (zboxsd-id12) or at least the correct drivers so eth shows up on going ifconfig. This is using i believe the realtec RTL8111DL chipset according to the chips on the board.
Thanks for the reply’s that Atheros devices is my wireless card. The Ethernet controller which I want to get running according to Ubuntu which I got the drivers working on is a realtec RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 03).
I have tired the modules that are available on searching “RTL8111/8168B”
I did manage to add the blacklist they say you have to do but this still had no effect. The only thing I can think of is the rev number isn’t the same and that’s affecting the outcome.
I know that you can compile/make the modules yourself but to be honest I haven’t a clue where to start or what you need for this.
Though to achive this i had to rebuild slax though the build slax part on this site from scrach. what i dont understand is why it didnt work manually building slax on the usb stick then dropping the module in the modules folder. Have i miss something.
