[Bug 1249979] Re: r8169 Ethernet driver doesn't work


Cocodude, thank you for your comments. Regarding them :

>"However, is Invalid the correct status considering it is a valid bug


>" It just happens to be fixed upstream."

if it's fixed in Trusty, it's fixed downstream as well.

>"I guess if you don't have any other suitable statuses it's fine, but I
can see this being confusing to anyone else searching for this."

The Status Fix Released would be more appropriate if the specific fix
with accompanying change log is provided. We don't have this in this

Hence, this bug report is being closed due to your last comment
regarding this being fixed with an update. For future reference you can
manage the status of your own bugs by clicking on the current status in
the yellow line and then choosing a new status in the revealed drop down
box. You can learn more about bug statuses at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Status. Thank you again for taking the time
to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Please submit any
future bugs you may find.

  r8169 Ethernet driver doesn't work

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Following an upgrade from 13.04 to 13.10, gigabit card stopped working
  (100Mbps ethernet working fine on the motherboard still - KN9 Ultra).

  dmesg gives a load of warnings "r8169 0000:01:0a.0 eth0:
  rtl_phyar_cond == 0 (loop: 20, delay: 25)." and when rmmodding r8169
  and modprobing it, I get:

  [  125.198865] r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 2.3LK-NAPI loaded
  [  125.199151] r8169 0000:01:0a.0 (unregistered net_device): not PCI Express

  [  125.240366] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready

  Plugging out and then in the cable makes no difference.
