Ethernet Intel Corp Device 15b7 (rev 31) does not recognize

Postby jsantomauro » 2017/06/19 21:48:14

Hello Community!!!!

I need some help with this problem, i am stuck trying to install my Ethernet card.
I have the following:
Computer: Lenovo Thincentre M800 series.
After make: lspci -nn | grep -i net
I got: 00:1f.6 Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Coporation Device [8086:15b7] (rev 31)

Here i detailed my CentOS version.
Linux localhost 2.632-431.e16.x86-64 #1 SMP

I downloaded e1000e-3.3.3.tar, but after extract i have to make install having the following error:
Makefile:67: *** Kernel header files not in any of the expected locations.
Makefile:68: *** Install the appropriate kernel development package, e.g.
MAkefile:69: *** Kernel- level, for building kernel modules and try again.

I hope you can help me.


Thanks

The driver for that is already included in the CentSO 6 kernel. Your particular kernel is ancient so perhaps you need to update to 6.9?

Do not build from source. It will break.

Current kernel 2.6.32-696.1.1.el6.x86_64 so only 500 builds newer than yours...

TrevorH Thanks for your response..

I was reading about this problem on several post. Why i can´t see the adapter on /modules.alias:alias pci:v00008086d000015B7sv*sd*bc*sc*i* e1000e?
You are talking that i need to update without build from the source, but i do not have any ethernet adapters working on this machine. Can i download 2.6.32-696.1.1.el6.x86_64 and update manually?

Thanks for your helps.

If you just installed this system then you're probably better off downloading the 6.9 media and reinstalling from that - or mounting it on one of the directories listed in /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Media.repo and using yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=c6-media update to get your whole system up to 6.9.

Yes, i just installed this system so i am going to download a new 6.9 media.
But just to know, is possible to know who i can do those steps that you mention it:
- mounting it on one of the directories listed in /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Media.repo and using yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=c6-media update to get your whole system up to 6.9

Thanks for help

Download the newer iso and get it onto the machine, maybe using a USB stick or something. The 3 directories in CentOS-Media.repo are /media/CentOS/ /media/cdrom/ and /media/cdrecorder. If you run e.g. mount -t iso9660 -o loop,ro /path/to/CentOS-6.9-media.iso /media/cdrom then you can update the currently installed system from the iso image using yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=c6-media update and it will.

I am not 100% sure that you will be able to mount anything under /media manually so you may need to edit the CentOS-Media.repo file and add another line to the list of directories and put your own in there and mount on that.
