Hi

I am using SLED 11.3 and try to use a new computer. Dell Optiplex XE3
The problem is that the network does not work.

ifconfig only return Loopback. No eth0

I guess that the hardware is to new for the old SUSE version.
But how shall I solve the problem?

Hi
Does the system have PCIeX1 slots available, grab a third party ethernet card to drop in that has drivers in the kernel your using?

Else you would need to look at building a driver (backporting) which would not be supported.

Can you post the output from;


uname -a
/sbin/lspci -nnk |grep -A3 Network
