Many server motherboards, all vPro-branded desktops and all current Intel motherboards also come with these, so many more people are at risk than just those who have bought discrete Intel Ethernet adapters. Really getting annoyed with this issue. Mon Nov 17, 4: Even a live CD Mar 3, Posts: There is a patch already committed to Andrew Morton’s -mm tree that may prevent the damage from occurring, but it has not been confirmed to work, and there is speculation that the issue is elsewhere.

Linux Kernel Driver DataBase: CONFIG_EE: Intel(R) PRO/ PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet support

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tag ‘kernel- fixed-upstream’. Comment on this change optional. Barely anyone runs X on it. ISO CD images are available from http: More speculation is that it isn’t kernel code at allbut rather these alpha and beta distro snapshots use a buggy pre-release version of X or its driverswhich 0886 course have 1bd own page table entries memory-mapping devices, and that X drivers may be inappropriately mapping and performing MMIO to the EEPROM NVM, destroying its contents.

Supporting Intel DM-2 Gigabit Network chipset (BD)

To post a comment you must log in. Making things worse is that at least for the laptop chipset-integrated parts, the only tools available to reflash the EEPROM will destroy the functionality, making it so the devices are no longer even enumerated on the PCI Express bus.

One hopes that the kernel teams of the distros adopt these patches quickly. It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

It isn’t the chips, since they work perfectly on older revisions of the kernel and other OSes aside from 10bf, where the same bug exists. This is going to get messy. Prototyped Ars Legatus Legionis Tribus: And we were planning to start Ubuntu 8. These things are all intel based, and just giving a FYI out there for Epc folks.

Intel Integrated Ethernet? Avoid prerelease distros and 2.6.27-rcX now

Originally posted by rjt: The previous Linux driver didn’t seem to do it much if at all either We’ve got machines with up to 6 Intel PCIe network chips. There aren’t reports of issues with discrete parts yet. Back on topic, from the Ubuntu forums post, it seems like this is a much smaller matter than originally reported?
