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?[/QUOTE]
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;
/sbin/lspci -nnk |grep -A3 Network
