I recently installed CentOS 5.2 on an Acer Aspire M1610 Desktop.
The on-board NIC is a SIS191 and is not recognized by the system, or not working anyway.
I have googled the planet on this subject and have found solutions from buying another NIC to compiling a new kernel.
The output of lspci is (a.o.):
00.04.0 Ethernet Controller Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 191 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (rev.02)
At first I was over the moon: Yes, the card is recognized!
But how do I get this working?
On the SIS-site there is a so-called driver, but that refers to hacking the kernel.
For me at this stage a bridge too far
I am by no means a Linux expert (as you might have guessed) so I might overlook something very basic.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
