Awesome project, thanks a lot for giving out
This driver is cancer on Debian/Ubuntu/Mint/Whatever. They are hard coding kernel versions that they happen to use, rather than compile depending on whatever kernel build source it's being built on(the point of building from src in the first place). So this driver compile shts itself if every planet isn't aligned with one guy using redhat in a dungeon at intel. This is not the way to sell hardware, kids. Just in case you missed the point of vendor supplied drivers. For example: #define UBUNTU_VERSION_CODE (((LINUX_VERSION_CODE & ~0xFF) << 8) + (UTS_UBUNTU_RELEASE_ABI)) #if UTS_UBUNTU_RELEASE_ABI > 255 #error UTS_UBUNTU_RELEASE_ABI is too large... #endif /* UTS_UBUNTU_RELEASE_ABI > 255 */ #if ( LINUX_VERSION_CODE <= KERNEL_VERSION(3,0,0) ) /* Our version code scheme does not make sense for non 3.x or newer kernels, * and we have no support in kcompat for this scenario. Thus, treat this as a * non-Ubuntu kernel. Possibly might be better to error here. */ #define UTS_UBUNTU_RELEASE_ABI 0 #define UBUNTU_VERSION_CODE 0 #endif
I cannot comment on the driver as I could not get it work on Ubuntu. I thought i'd give it a go, even though I knew it wasn't apart of the supported list. Ubuntu 14.04, 3.13.0-24-generic kernel, Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection I217-V (rev 05). **UPDATE** Booting without the cable plugged in helped!
