Went looking for a cheap GigE PCI card to use with a 6.2
(6.3-PRERELEASE) stable system, and brought this home due to Microcenter
not stocking Intel cards and me not wanting to wait for Newegg to ship
one to me.
I have the re driver built into the kernel, but this particular card is
not recognized even though its supposed to be based on the Realtek 8169
chipset. Realtek has a linux driver download (of unknown quality) and
that source has a mod time of 2/06, so I'm guessing it's not a
reinvention of the wheel or a super-significant change.
Anyone track these things close enough to know if there's something
significant changed in this chipset family?
