SLES10SP3 and Attansic EtherContr: Class 0200, 1969:1083

I have new hardware with onboard Ethernet Card:
02:00.0 Ethernet controller [Class 0200]: Attansic Technology Corp. Device [1969:1083] (rev c0 )

My SLES10SP3 - can not use this Ethernet Card (Kernel–0.54.5)…

Please, help to find drivers for this network interface card for sles10sp3.


To be honest you probably better off to find an older model PCI card (e1000 etc) and use that…

Can you post the output from;

hwinfo --netcard

So the driver for that card is the atl1c

Can you check if it’s there;

/sbin/modinfo atl1c

sles10sp4 - without this module.


It seems you have to upgrade to SLES11 (SP2) in order to use this nic. I don’t have any experiences with it though.

At this time use opensuse12.1 for test…


SLES11 SP2 doesn’t include atl1c module…

Well, it’s included in the SLES11-Extras repo, not on the original media…

You need to enable the SLES11-Extras repository and install the
kernel-{flavor}-extras package, eg for my system;

zypper if kernel-pae-extra
