What package do you have installed and what kernel?
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
Info for USB installs on http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/InstallFromUSBkey
CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.

Hello,

Package is kmod-sky2-1.30-2.el8_1.elrepo.x86_64
uname -a outputs 4.18.0-177.el8.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Feb 12 19:59:38 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Fresh installed Centos 8 from the latest iso, then updated. Added elrepo then yum installed kmod-sky2.

Mobo is Asus P5B-E Plus https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P5BE_ ... fications/
lspci lists
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 12)
as network controller.
The main problem of using 4.18.0-147.5.1.el8_1.x86_64 - which kmod-sky2 wants - is that the video driver apparently doesn't work on this one - GK208B [GeForce GT 710] (rev a1)

Thanks for your support!

You're using a Stream kernel and the kmods from ELRepo do not support those (or only by accident). You need to run CentOS Linux 8.1 not CentOS Stream to use ELRepo kmods.
