[Solved] Install networking device drivers for Marvell

Post by m0t0m » 2020/09/07 15:26:48

I just installed
Centos 8.2.2004 (Core)
and networking does not work, I guess because the drivers are not installed

Code: Select all

nmcli device status 
lo loopback unmanaged

Code: Select all

lspci -nn | grep -i net

09:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Marvell Technology 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller [11ab:4354] (rev 13) 
0c:00.0 Network controller [0200]: Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01)
 

This then prompts two questions:
1. Where do I find drivers?
2. How do I install them without internet on my device?

I think the experts here will be more likely to help if you show
the full output of the lspci command. E.g. on my system:
03:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller [10ec:8168] (rev 03)

If you run lspci -nn | grep then you need to post the output from it that includes the PCI vendor/device ids (the whole point of using -nn)

I've updated the values with the full output.

I've found https://centos.pkgs.org/8/elrepo-x86_64 ... 4.rpm.html to download what I think to be the drivers but

Code: Select all

rpm -Uvh kmod*
fails due to failed dependencies.
kernel (__dynamic_netdev_dbg)
kernel (pci_wake_from_d3)
amoung others in a list of over 20.

The laptop does not have internet to install what's missing.

That is the version for 8.1 and you have 8.2 so you need http://elrepo.reloumirrors.net/elrepo/e ... x86_64.rpm

Once you have that installed, do not forget to also install the elrepo-release package so that you get future updates to the kmod package when new ones are required for subsequent point release kernels.
