    Network card not connected


    Hi everyone,

    I just installed SUSE (linux enterprise Server

    10) on my computer (DELL), every thing seems to

    work correctly except the internet connexion,

    the OS doesn't recognize the integrated network

    card Intel(R)82567LM-3, I tried to install it

    manually: the network card doesn't figure out in

    default list given by the system and no one in

    the list is compatible with it,also tried with

    the original CD (DELL Device Drivers) but it

    shows an error, tried also to download a driver (e1000e-1.3.17.tar.gz) but this doesn't work also, It shows errors while following the instructions given :

    Running the command : rmpbuild _tb /e1000e-1.3.17.tar.gz shows the following errors :
    error: Name field must be present in package: (main package) error: Version field must be present in package: (main package) error: Release field must be present in package: (main package)
    error: Summary field must be present in package: (main package)
    error: Group field must be present in package: (main package)
    error: License field must be present in package: (main package)


    May the device be protected by the manufacturer?

    so it can't work with other OS other than

    Windows (Cause I have windows XP on the same

    computer and the internet connection works

    correctly when I switch to it )


    Any suggestions please help.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think the kernel in SLES 10 does not support your network. Try a newer kernel or if possible install SLES 11 which may support your network card. If it is a desktop system, then just go for the latest version of openSUSE.
