CentOS 6.10 Can't get network adapter to work

Post by mmosso » 2020/09/02 15:56:10

I recently installed CentOS 6.10 on a Dell Precision 3541 and I can't seem to configure it properly. I have no eth0 configuration

Every solution I've tried has been giving me errors.

lspci -nn | grep -i net
00:1f.6 Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (7) I219-LM [8086:15bb] (rev10)

I don't think I219-LM is supported in CentOS 6. I tried to reinstall the OS but "Configure Network" was grayed out during installation.

I can't seem to use yum localinstall on any rpm I try to download. I have to go through an ever expanding dependency tree to do so. I have two CentOS DVDs left over and I don't really know how to install the files on the second one without using online repos, and of course whatever driver I could find from Intel didn't work.

Install CentOS 7 or 8 with KVM and run CentOS 6 in a VM.

CentOS 6 has less than 13 weeks of life left. It's not a good choice for a new install.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
