[Bug 1520651] Re: [ASRock N68-VS3 FX] Networking and ACPI conflicts
mike, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available from
the very top line at the top of the page from http://kernel.ubuntu.com
/~kernel-ppa/mainline/?C=N;O=D (the release names are irrelevant for
testing, and please do not test the daily folder)? Install instructions
are available at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds . This
will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue.
If the latest kernel did not allow you to test to the issue (ex. you couldn't boot into the OS) please make a comment in your report about this, and continue to test the next most recent kernel version until you can test to the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this issue is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon, next to the word Tags, located at the bottom of the report description:
Where X, and Y are the first two numbers of the kernel version, and Z is
the release candidate number if it exists.
If the mainline kernel does not fix the issue, please add the following tags:
Please note, an error to install the kernel does not fit the criteria of
Once testing of the latest upstream kernel is complete, please mark this
report's Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results.
Thank you for your understanding.

[ASRock N68-VS3 FX] Networking and ACPI conflicts
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
The Linux kernel seems to have an issue with my on-board networking
adapter and the ACPI of my computer.
On doing some research this seems to be a very old and somewhat common
bug that no one has ever done anything about.
This bug results in two things:
My on-board networking doesn't work, and trying to restart or shutdown
the computer freezes the system.
With an older 12.04 kernel, 3.2.0-23.36, there were two workarounds.
And in a more recent version there was still a practical workaround
The first mentioned of these still works:
1) Boot into rescue mode, drop to the terminal, run "rmmod forcedeth"
then "modprobe forcedeth msi=0 msix=0" then resume a normal boot. This
enabled both networking and regular ACPI functions.
But is a one-off that needs to be repeated at every start up and
several graphics drivers do ot function well until the next normal
So that is very much a compromise.
The more stable work arounds listed at the references cannot now be
applied because the structure of the kernel has changed.
I assume that a work around could be produced but my knowledge is
insufficient to do it myself.
I would dearly and urgently love to find a solution as I have an
unusable PC at the moment.
DONt Let Me Go Back To Windows!
