first of, i do have some limited linux experience, however I am still a newbie. This is the first time using CentOs but due to the program I need to run, I really do need to use CentOS. I am using an Alienware M14x. The Installation went fine, however, the Ethernet Card as well as my Video driver do not work. My first Objective is to get Ethernet up and running.
I have spend all of yesterday trying to get it to work, I would like to tell you what I have been doing:
lspci-nn returns the following information when it comes to my Ethernet:
Code: Select all
07:00.0 Ethernet controller : Atheros Communications Inc. AR8151 v2.0 Gigabit Ethernet [1969:1083] (rev c0)
I have tried downloading the kmod-atl1e module, however this doens't support my ethernet card.
I have also tried using this tutorial (and patch) however, even after doing some changes to that make file, it won't make the file for me, rendering it useless to me.

This link will provide you with the information produced by the getinfo script:
