sabayon 5.4 natsemi problem

Postby basiskookboek » Fri Dec 17, 2010 18:59

Hello,

During installation and/or running the live dvd Sabayon 5.4 all works fine except for my internet connection. When I start the installation or the live dvd I see that my build in national semiconductor is being disabled (the light on the networkcard and switch turn of) at the exact momnt that the kernel is being initialized.
Afterwards I can see with lspci that it sees the card and with ifconfig I see no dhcp address (expected with a non working card).

Browsing through the forum I found similar problems but only with the older 3.5 sabayon. For these cases I could not find a solution, is there any hope I can get it to activate?

What does lspci show the card as? We need the chipset of the card, not the brand name.
Then check, dmesg will be in /var/log/dmesg or, as root.
" cat /var/log/dmesg "
sounds like a firmware issue, look for any thing related to network or firmware

Hello genfool,

Included the output from lspci and dmesg (compressed, attachement). This is all done on the live dvd because I have installed another Linux distro. Hope this helps, thank you for your time!
