Attansic L1 giganet driver on ASUS P5B-E November 30, 2006

Posted by TSAI HONG-BIN in Linux.

So, it’s always hurt to port Linux to hardwares that are new to market. ASUS P5B-E is one of the best examples. Its onboard LAN chip, Attansic L1, is not supported in Fedora Core 6 by default. http://www.hogchain.net/attansic/attansic.html here is a website offering links to official driver download and kernel patches from other contributors.

Something worth of mentioning is that on kernel 2.6.18, a little modification to driver source code is required. in at_main.c, all skb_shinfo(skb)->tso_size should be changed to skb_shinfo(skb)->gso_size. Done. Remember to install kernel-devel rpm with corresponding kernel arch.

NOTE: there is a update of this driver issue on kernel 2.6.19, please refer to https://furseal.wordpress.com/2007/03/13/attansic-l1-giganet-driver-on-asus-p5b-e-kernel-2618/

NOTE: update to kernel 2.6.20 https://furseal.wordpress.com/2007/04/09/attansic-l1-giganet-driver-on-asus-p5b-e-kernel2620/
