Hello!
I've installed SLES11 SP2 at PC with Gigabyte GA-H77D3H motherboard.
It has Atheros AR8151 gigabit ethernet controller onboard (VEN_1969&DEV_1083).
SLES hasn't asked any questions about this controller during installation and I thought all was OK.
Network settings contains Atheros Ethernet Controller, but says "unable to configure network card because kernel device isn't present".
I've found atl1e module source code in compat-wireless package, built it without errors,
but when I've tried to insert module, the error occurred - "insmod: error inserting atl1e.ko: 1 Unknown symbol in module"
Any ideas how to fix it?

Best regards,
Miloserdin Oleg

Hi
The module is there as part of the kernel, eg?


/sbin/modinfo atl1e

filename: /lib/modules/3.0.42-0.7-pae/kernel/drivers/net/atl1e/atl1e.ko
version: 1.0.0.7-NAPI

What is the output from the command and PCI ID for the device from;

Did you try modprobing the existing kernel module before building the
compat wireless package?
