[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!
