Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
I'm trying to install OMV 1.0.20 on my Netgear ReadyNAS NVX, which uses an Intel EP80579 CPU/SoC (a.k.a. Intel Tolapai, a x86 32-bit SoC with embedded gigabit Ethernet).
I can access the mainboard BIOS and boot from an USB pen, start OMV installation and see it through the RS232 console (no VGA on this NAS unit). The problem is that Debian doesn't recognize the embedded NIC. Intel has a driver for linux available, but only for kernel 2.6.x, not for Wheezy. I can't find a working driver anywhere, and compiling/porting the driver source to compile on kernel 3.x is a bit too complex for me. I also looked at the Intel e1000e driver to see if I could add the PnP IDs for Tolapai's Ethernet, but there's a lot of hardware specific code, and not enough info available to do this.
Can anyone help, please? Are there other solutions/workarounds ? A precompiled driver would be ideal
