Install Linux driver for Ethernet - Marvell Yukon 88e8056 pci-e Gigabit Ethernet Controller

1. Install the Oracle Enterprise Linux 4.4 through the DVD’s (Start, 2, 3 & 4)

2. Once the installation is done go to Applications - > System Settings - > Network

3. Check whether the networking tab has some Ethernet found and active

4. If not then we are missing NIC driver for Linux for this hardware

5. Go to the following URL and download the driver,
Driver Name: (Kernel v2.4.20 and Higher 2.4.x Kernels Linux Driver Install Package v10.61.3.3)

6. As we are not in the network, copy the driver in a USB and mount it in the Linux and install it by running the script,

bunzip2 -c install_A.B.C.D.tar.bz2 tar xfv –

# cd DriverInstall


7. Once done reboot the server, the driver will make detect the Ethernet

8. Provide the IP through static assigning or through DHCP

9. It’ll take 15 minutes to start, once done Check the Applications - > System Settings - > Network - > Ethernet

10. The status will be active and now you are connected to the network
