I suspect that it might require recompiling the kernel, which if it doesn’t do this automatically, I seem incapable of doing manually. I found that Ubuntu Should it be listed there as well? I am fairly confident this isn’t an alx device and isn’t an Atheros; it identifies itself as: They claimed they had filed a pull request so hopefully these fixes will be making their way into the mainline at some point down the road. I would read through those threads before attempting to compile the drivers, also there were no distros mentioned in the threads that natively supported this hardware, so you’ll be on your own for getting support for it, at least in the short term.

Beyond the usual optimizations, the bulk of the other changes are to the end-user software. Anyway, I’d like to know if there are any Linux distributions that already come bkgfoot this needed support?
Bigfoot Networks is back once again though, this time with the most cost-conscious card to date, Killer In lshw well, i’m using openSUSEyou can see this: Do I need to select a different kernel at startup, or specifically 2010 a complete recompilation of the klller first?

I have done a lot of lonux including downloading and extracting the LAN driver at Gigabyte’s site for your awesome mobo. The second thread contains better details and also various fixes for getting the driver to work with later versions of the Linux kernel 3.

The original Killer NIC in So, about the patch Buried in these threads were directions for taking an alx driver and patching it so that it would work with the E To be clear, I’ve found a couple Google results mentioning that the manufacturer is “Cabletron”.
Again, thanks for your help and for your time!!! Paul Vargas 3. In our review of the original Killer NIC the results were a mixed bag: GaNE also marks a bit of a shift in how Bigfoot will be marketing the Killer lineup. Here is a snip from the.

What happened to bigfoot networks / killergaming
The driver is sort of old, and I’m thinking it might be a compatibility-mode thing for all Killer cards, but maybe it’s just not the right driver at all. Thank you for your help!!
We will be reviewing the card next week when our sample arrives, but ahead of that we wanted to do a quick rundown of what we know thus far after talking to Bigfoot. I suspect that it might require recompiling the kernel, which if it doesn’t do this automatically, I seem incapable of doing manually. Killer by Ryan Smith on May 11, Against Improvements are tiny Still too expensive for what you get.
The Killer M1 and K1 showed promised, but were undermined by their high costs, and now Bigfoot Network’s Killer is here to put that right. I found these threads on the Ubuntu Forums which discus the support lack of support for the Killer E Ethernet network driver under Linux.
networking – Linux driver for Bigfoot Killer E? – Super User
Internally hardware is largely gigfoot same. I’ve decided I’m going to dual boot, but my primary machine will be the Linux system. Qualcomm Atheros Bigfoot Killer E Ethernet working in linux I have done a lot of digging including downloading and extracting the LAN driver at Gigabyte’s site for your awesome mobo.
I don’t have any driver experience, so i hope someday, someone make a “fake” driver like the OP, but for my NIC!
