Ethernet – Intel e1000e Still Broken with 5.4-rc6 — 6 Comments

    • Thanks for the info..
      I tried this with kernel 5.4-rc6, but the compile fails:
      # make
      make[1]: Entering directory ‘/usr/src/linux-5.4-rc6’

      – and it seems that pci-aspm.h no longer exists, in the 5.4-rc tree..
      RG.

  1. Yes and i am also having problems with this new e1000e-3.6.0 driver on linux-5.4.2 with the missing linux/pci-aspm.h in the kernel source.
    like this:
    cd /home/Dave/Downloads/e1000e-3.6.0/src
    bash-5.0# make install
    make[1]: Entering directory ‘/mnt/disk/Downloads/k/linux-5.4.2’

    A bit of a mess to be sure. My system is an asus rog strix z390-e gaming running slackware-current multilib 64 bit. I get a pregnant 2 minute pause on boot up then
    my system runs ok. It was only when i tried to update the kernel that i obtained this hang on boot and then tried to update of the e1000e driver to see if it would help my system as my system seems to hang around the time my nic initializes. I also have an msi apache pro laptop running the same
    software that does not have the same problem (Also doesn’t have an e1000e driver needed)
    I am sure there is a work around (eventually) so it is not too big of a deal i just don’t like the long boot up time.
    Perhaps next i will tell intel. It is their driver after all.

  2. just comment the include as the defs within it seems to have been moved to pci.h (as far as i read elsewhere); compilation worked for me that way and connection started again to be stable!

  3. I’ve got the same issue with 5.4.0, but for me it’s not stable on a Lenovo ThinkPad P52 using driver version 3.6.0

  4. Same problem here as well on 5.4.0, using the kernel.org version of e1000e; 3.2.6-k. I’ve not tried to compile the upstream 3.6.0 yet.
