           Summary: Marvell 88E8053 isn't recognized
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: linux
        AssignedTo: ben.collins at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: karvonen at gmail.com
         QAContact: kernel-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com

I have an Asus a8v-e Deluxe motherboard, which comes with an integrated gigabit
ethernet controller; the Marvell 88E8053. The driver for this is included in the
official ubuntu linux-image-2.6.12-9-amd64-k8, but it doesnt work. The driver is
called skge, or sk98lin (the later one being an older driver and the skge one
being a driver which should support the whole marvell gigabit ethernet
controller family.) I had to compile an external module into the kernel in order
to get it working. The driver I found here :
'The sk98lin driver installation script supports the SysKonnect SK-9Exx and
SK-9Sxx adapters on Linux 2.6.x, 2.4.13 and above.'

I hope this will be solved in the near future..
