    • Troubles with the installation of the e1000e intel driver (I219-V)


      I want to install OMV 4.1.22 on the following system:
      • ASRock DeskMini 310
      • Intel Pentium Gold G5600
      • 8GB RAM
      i can install OMV with an USB-Ethernet-card, but i have problems with the internal Ethernet card I219v. the preinstalled e1000e-driver of the kernel doesn't seem to work. (the following output is from an ubuntu 18.04 installation, where the card works)

      Source Code

      1. obiwahn@ubuntu:~$ lspci -nnk | grep -i net -A2
      2. 00:1f.6 Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (7) I219-V [8086:15bc] (rev 10)
      3. Subsystem: ASRock Incorporation Ethernet Connection (7) I219-V [1849:15bc]
      4. Kernel driver in use: e1000e
      5. Kernel modules: e1000e
      one solution, i have found, is to take the intel driver directly from the website. i' following the instructions on the downloadpage. The building of the new kernel modul is successfull, but i can't get the new driver to work. I think, i make a mistake loading the driver permanently. What have I forgotten?

      Thanks, ObiWahn

      That NIC should work fine with the 4.19 kernel. Once you install OMV, are you fully updating the system (should install the 4.19 kernel) wiht the usb nic?
