Description

Hi,

Yesterday I finally updated my snv_134b build to io_148.
After doing so, OpenIndiana could not find the network card (Realtek 8112L), and I was let with just the "NoNet" setting. Trying to use Network Preferences would not work because there were no Connections available to select.

Under io_148 I received the following:

zaphod@thebook:~$ ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL> mtu 8232 index 1
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
lo0: flags=2002000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv6,VIRTUAL> mtu 8252 index 1
inet6 ::1/128
zaphod@thebook:~$ dladm show-phys
[Nothing shown]

After switching the Boot Environment back to snv_134b, the network card again worked fine and here is what I found:

zaphod@thebook:~$ ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL> mtu 8232 index 1
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
rge0: flags=1004843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,DHCP,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 2
inet 192.168.1.104 netmask ffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255
lo0: flags=2002000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv6,VIRTUAL> mtu 8252 index 1
inet6 ::1/128
rge0: flags=2004841<UP,RUNNING,MULTICAST,DHCP,IPv6> mtu 1500 index 2
inet6 fe80::92e6:baff:fec9:e86e/10
zaphod@thebook:~$ dladm show-phys
LINK MEDIA STATE SPEED DUPLEX DEVICE
rge0 Ethernet up 100 full rge0

So it looks that some driver support that was available in OpenSolaris is missing in OpenIndiana, does anyone know how to address this?

Thanks a ton.
Tom

This is resolved by manually installing driver/network/rge
(example: ,5.11-0.151.1:20110818T205237Z).
