    No driver loaded: 82566DM using Suse11.0 on Dell Optiplex 760

      Problem

      (a) I can not access the Internet from a Dell Optiplex 760 using Suse 11.0.

      (b) I am a novce in this context.

       

      Background

      Card: Integrated 10/100/1000 Ethernet (Intel WG82567LM LOM)

      Interface: 82566DM Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000

       

      The setup should be trouble free: http://en.opensuse.org/HCL/Network_Adapters_(Wired)

       

      Running (as root) netdriverinfo.sh gives the following output:

      : 00:19.0

            Make/Model = Dell Device 027f

            Ethernet controller = Intel Corporation  Device 10de

            VenID:DevID = 8086:10de

            Driver name = No driver loaded

            Driver version = No driver loaded

       

      Executing (as root) find /lib/modules/ -name e1000* gives nothing.

       

      Installing (as root) e1000e-0.5.18.3.tar.gz gives an error message:

      Makefile:70: *** Linux kernel source not found in any of these locations:

      Makefile:71: [BLANK]

       

      Manually I managed to find the following file created on 22 August 2008:

      /lib/modules/2.6.25.16-0.1-pae/kernel/drivers/net/e1000e/e1000e.ko

       

      Questions

      Do I miss something? What is the next step?
