October 2nd, 1. You’ll probably need 8. I’ve been trying unsuccessfully for the last few days to make my Realtek ethernet card to work. I’ve successfully installed the r driver and verified that it works correctly, but I’m having trouble getting rid of the r driver. I assume it wasn’t working becaue it was being loaded at boot, so perhaps now it’s also being loaded after boot. That’s too old for the 4. I found a good set of instructions on how to do it from another thread in these forums that was in fact specific to this problem:

Please note that in the output above lspci does not show any drivers nor kernel modules in use. The problem is that the r module loads fine I see it in lsmodbut it’s not associated with the card so it doesn’t show up r1869 ifconfig exactly as it happened to lumi in Make Linux load specific driver for given device Realtek NIC. Either way I’m marking this thread as solved. Results 1 to 6 of 6. That’s too old for the 4. So this is where the kernel is told that if a device with any of the listed PCI IDs are found, then use this driver.
Bad return status for module build on kernel: I’ve successfully installed the r driver and verified that it works correctly, but I’m having trouble getting rid of the r driver.
I can’t yet tell if that if that is essentially a stored version of my first attempt or not since I don’t know how to read their contents, but my guess is blackliist my 2nd attempt didn’t get undone so it stuck. If any of this helps, let me know, and I’ll write a formal answer for you to accept.
Any help is welcome. I tried to install rdkms package from the repository but does not succeed. October 9th, 6.

Does this mean that I have to recompile the kernel to remove the r module? Yes, this solved the problem. The card used the r driver, which seems to be buggy and unreliable as in here.

Join Date Jun Beans I’ve been trying unsuccessfully for the last few days to blacklit my Realtek ethernet card to work. Especially as most NICs require a bespoke binary firmware blob to be loaded that may break your hardware – so please be warned, and do a little bit of homework to locate a compatible firmware blob.

October 5th, 3. I don’t think any of those were responsible for the fix because they were already applied before the first time I remade my initrd.
But at least I have a good idea of how to troubleshoot it now that I know the initrd image has an effect.
October 3rd, 2. You can do this, but obviously be warned that the driver may not be fully compatible with your device! This is the relevant portion of my e8169 -C network: Removing r driver I’ll take a look at it. Email Required, but never shown.
