Atheros Communications AR8131 Gigabit Ethernet Driver for CentOS 5

Am having problem to load the following device in CentOS 5.6. x86_64.

A few google search lead me to the following.

I got the driver from ELREPO .
one of them is as follows :

wget http://jur-linux.org/download/elrepo/elrepo/el5/x86_64/RPMS/kmod-atl1e-1.0.1.14-1.el5.elrepo.x86_64.rpm
rpm -ivh kmod-atl1e-1.0.1.14-1.el5.elrepo.x86_64.rpm

then just run

modprobe atl1e

after that it shall appear properly in system-config-network..

proceed as usual..

    I got better one after a few minute..
    by adding this two line before line 602 (/usr/share/system-config-network/netconfpkg/gui/maindialog.py)


    if (not isinstance (host.Hostname, str)):
    continue

    now it works like charms again.. hehe.. 😎

    This was helpful. Summary: if the /etc/hosts file is not well-formed, the python script doesn’t handle it well. In my case, somehow a long entry that was commented out got “line wrapped”, leaving some uncommented garbage on the next line. Fixing the hosts file or adding the above patch “worked”. It seems that some complaint to the user should be generated in such a case, though.
