nVidia nForce ethernet support
NVidia is not exactly known for opening up specifications for
their hardware, and besides their graphics cards, buyers of
their network cards or mainboards with those cards onboard have a
problem. Support for NVidia's nForce ethernet controllers
as e.g. found in some "Shuttle" computers was a problem for a long
time, but it seems progress is finally there via the
package. It's still only available as external driver via a LKM,
but at least that's better than nothing.
A success report with dmesg output
is also available.
Of course having full specs to write a proper driver would be
ways preferred over this.
