Intel® PRO/1000 PT Desktop Adapter - Linux Issues

    Hi Everyone,

    I have a Intel® PRO/1000 PT Desktop Adapter (PCI Express) installed in
    a system that i am running CentOS 5.2 with kernel version
    2.6.18-92.1.10-el5.

    When I perform an lspci, the card is not listed however the PCI
    Express bus is listed. I am not receiving any error messages when i
    am trying to load the module however.

    Has anyone seen this issue before or similar.

    I am running out of ideas.

    Thanks alot.

    Tom.

    Are you sure the card is firmly seated in the slot?

  4. Hi Tom,

    You wouldn't have one of those motherboards that share bandwith between
    various PCIe connectors: e.g. a PCIe x4 + 3 PCIe x1 connectors might be used
    as
    - 1 PCIe x4
    - 4 PCIe x1

    Regards,
    Alvin.

    Hi,
    The system has one standard PCI slot and a PCIe slot. Nothing else.
    Small form factor machine.

    This is the darnest thing i have ever seen.

    IIRC lspci doesn't care about having a driver present. It is "purely"
    PCI-level stuff.

    Sounds like you need to try the add-in card in another system. If it
    shows-up there, then you probably have a bad slot in your system.
    Similarly, you could try a known-good card in your system and if it
    appears you know you have a bad add-in card.

    Or that both the slot and the card you are trying are far enough to
    opposite ends of the specs that their margins don't overlap I
    suppose...

    There isn't some poorly documented BIOS slot disabling option is
    there? Anything interesting in dmesg - perhaps from I/O services
    deciding to disable the slot itself for some reason?
