[SOLVED] 3.7 Kernel ALX driver problems

I have a ASUS N56VZ laptop with Atheros AR8161 so I'm using new alx driver to use it. I was willing to upgrade to 3.7 series ,but now  that kernel is causing some headaching problems. When I was upgraded i also installed dkms-alx from AUR. Alx driver(alx-driver-legacy package on AUR, not compatible with 3.7.x) was working on 3.6.x perfectly, however; on 3.7 it raises errors such as:

After these errors, I did some googleing and found this https://ask.fedoraproject.org/question/ … m43142-not and applied same instructions (commented lines below out) with benjaminfjones (The guy ,in 1st comment) and compiled. compat-wireless-3.6.8.1-snpc. It worked but now connection drops always after a while and It is not becoming OK unless I rmmod and modprobe it.

The commented lines are:

        if (hw && hw->adpt && hw->adpt->netdev){}
              __netdev_printk(level, hw->adpt->netdev, &vaf);
        else

And lastly my dmesg output now:

[ 6504.338255] alx: Atheros Gigabit Network Connection
[ 6504.412390] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready
[ 6505.924726] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready

I've also tried 3.7.1, 2013-01-10-2u versions of compat-drivers same as top.
Thanks for all replies.

Re: [SOLVED] 3.7 Kernel ALX driver problems

I think I've solved it. Installing 3.8-rc5 nightly version looks solved it? I'm running a test on my ethernet card I send info about wheter it drops.

Re: [SOLVED] 3.7 Kernel ALX driver problems

Did you have to compile the drivers manually, or 3.8 kernel has the kernel drivers incorporated?

Re: [SOLVED] 3.7 Kernel ALX driver problems

I also expierienced troubles with the alx-driver after upgrading my kernel to 3.7.4-1 x86_64

It gave me an error when the kernel was build and the driver did not load at boot (mkinitcpio.conf: modules=".. alx ...")

I fixed it by just recompiling and installing the aur package. Works as normal now.

Re: [SOLVED] 3.7 Kernel ALX driver problems

I've compiled manually but now my kernel doesnt boot :S I don't know what the reason is. It gives an error mmc0: Reset 0x1 never completed . I've blacklisted alx and will try to boot again.

Re: [SOLVED] 3.7 Kernel ALX driver problems

OK, OK it was caused by a un-updated mkinitcpio image after package update. By the way why didn't pacman run mkinitcpio -p linux after update. Is that a bug I haven't seen any info in /var/log/pacman.log

Re: [SOLVED] 3.7 Kernel ALX driver problems

As far as I tested kernel 3.7 does have some problems with ALX driver. Every update I find myself trying to find a solution.

Re: [SOLVED] 3.7 Kernel ALX driver problems

Hello,

I have same problem with alx driver.

My kernel is 3.7.5-1-ARCH x86_64.

I have selected alx using a driver_select script and compile compat-drivers-3.8-rc5-1-u from sources, modprobe alx driver. Till this everything seems to be fine.

I have configure in /etc/network.d/wire
CONNECTION='ethernet'
INTERFACE='enp4s0'
IP='dhcp'

netcfg -u wire gave me the dump like from the first message.

alx from compat-wireless-3.6.8.1-snpc worked without problems with 3.6 kernel.

Re: [SOLVED] 3.7 Kernel ALX driver problems

Do you mean that compat alx driver works fine in  3.8 kernel after compiling and only 3.7 kernel is affected?
