i need Treiber NIC Marvell Technology Group Ltd.

Post by EvDanBn » 2020/06/30 15:41:44

Hello everyone,

I have the following problem with a Centos8 installation on a hardware from Acer with two network interfaces from Marvell technology

Code: Select all

[root@localhost ~]# lspci | grep ne
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8053 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 20)
09:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8071 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 16)
Where can I get the drivers for the NIC's which fit to the kernel of Centos

thx

Post that output again but this time use lspci -nn | grep -i net not just lspci.

Assuming they are PCI ids 11ab:4362 and 11ab:436b, there is no module included in CentOS 8 that supports those cards. You can check this by running

grep -i 11ab /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/modules.* | grep -Ei "4362|436b"

On Fedora that command tells me those cards are supported by the sky2 module. ELRepo package that module for CentOS 8 so use Google to find them, install their elrepo-release package for el8 then yum install kmod-sky2.
