[Bug 1520651] Re: 10de:03ef [ASRock N68-GS4/USB3 FX] Networking and ACPI conflicts



I'm a bit confused here.  Didn't I do the upstream testing as you
requested?  Following your instructions exactly?

Now, are you suggesting that "the issue you are reporting is an upstream
one",  well of course it is.  You asked me to do it that way, and I

As much fun as it has been getting involved in this testing and bug
reports, the real reason, I made my initial report was that I have an
unusable PC.

I was hoping someone could suggest a practical work-around.  Someone
with knowledge of the new kernels who can tell me how to adapt the old
work-arounds that I referenced to the current system?

Is there anyone out there that can help me with that?

I can see that no-one is able or willing to help me with that, so:  I
will unable to do any further testing on this issue as the PC is now
packaged up and ready to dispatch back to the supplier, who has
generously agreed to replace the motherboard for me.

I note that this is an increasing problem with newer motherboards
especially USB 3 ready ones.  I hope that this issue is addressed soon
or UBUNTU may seriously loose popularity as it will be unusable to an
increasing number of new motherboard owners.

Thank you for your help to date.

What shall I do with this thread now?  Close it down?

  10de:03ef [ASRock N68-GS4/USB3 FX] Networking and ACPI conflicts

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  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.

  WORKAROUND: 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. This
  needs to be repeated at every start up and several graphics drivers do
  not function well until the next normal boot.
