Asus P5QL Pro- Sound and Ethernet controller unsupported!
« on: December 07, 2008, 10:29:55 am »

I just installed Vector Linux 5.9 last night to have no sound hardware detected and the Ethernet was dead!

The motherboard is:

Asus P5QL Pro

This indicates that your NIC card is in deed working.

Sound:

Open a terminal and type alsamixer see if the sound is muted, the m key will mute or unmute.

if the card is still not working post the output of lsmod.

It is under Crunchbang, but under Vector 5.9, all I see with ifconfig is the loopback! 

I cannot access the internet with Vector! I'm posting from Crunchbang!

 ???

My interpretation is that the ifconfig was from the install you had
a question about.

So am I to guess that you have some other form of Linux running?

If so compare lsmod and modprobe the missing modules.

Yes, I do, an Ubuntu-based one, just to post this!

Try the atl1 driver. Do "modprobe atl1".
After that, try VasmCC > Network > Netconf, and ifconfig -a.

If you can already see the driver when doing "lsmod", then I don't know...

I see a discrepancy, because the ethernet controller is an Atheros and the sound is from Realtek.

Even when I told the installer to use HAL. *Because the hardware is real new!*

As you can see, they are fine under Ubuntu.

And *yes, ifconfig only displays the loopback, nothing else!*

It would be very helpful is you can post the lspci, lsmod and ifconfig -a from your VL install.....copy it to txt file if you can...... :P

I honestly think the Asus P5QL Pro system is too new! (that means required to wait for at least version 6x and try again)

VL 6.0 beta 2 is already in a very usable state.  I had a prerelease copy so I've been running it for a few days.  If I were you I'd give that a try.  The 2.6.27.7 kernel should support the newer Asus hardware.
