Sounds like you need to run createrepo.

Hey again,

ELREPO updated their kmod-e1000e driver. Whilst the driver is suitable for the NIC specified when using CentOS 6.10, the problem has only progressed for me.

I need to be able to do an installation using kickstart via PXE boot. This means that I need to produce a driver disk containing the new driver from ELREPO. Not a simple task, and also not what the post was originally about so I think I should fork to a new thread for this.

TL:DR, driver update has been produced by ELREPO and works, but I need to put it in a DD file to solve my problem.

I suggest you try filing an RFE at http://elrepo.org/bugs for an iso file.

Hey Toracat,

Thanks. I'll give it a shot. I wasn't sure if it was something I should bother them with since someone already provided the RPM update for me.

As always, I'll be sure to update here with any progress.

Cheers,
CD

Hey Again,

So the issue is that the e1000e driver is loaded during the initrd file being read. This means that the driver cannot then be updated during the installation as a version of it has already been loaded. The documentation that explains this is linked below. See section 6.1, Limitations.

Thanks again for all the help with this Trevor and Toracat. At least we got to an end-point with it.
