No wired net

I wanted to try out devuan_ascii_2.1_amd64_desktop-live but I'm getting no wired network connection when booting from the stick.

When running artix:

% lspci -knn | grep -iA5 net
00:1f.6 Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (7) I219-V [8086:15bc] (rev 10)
	DeviceName: Onboard - Ethernet
	Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. [MSI] Ethernet Connection (7) I219-V [1462:7b17]
	Kernel driver in use: e1000e
	Kernel modules: e1000e

and devuan:

% lspci -knn | grep -iA1 net
00:1f.6 Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:15bc] (rev 10)
	Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. [MSI] Device [1462:7b17]

I realize I have fairly new hardware (late 2018). Is it possible to get network in this case?

Re: No wired net

You most likely need a newer kernel. This has come up before and will come up again, so I just made an unofficial ascii desktop-live iso with the ascii-backports 4.19 kernel. You can try this, or you can wait until beowulf is released (or at least a beta). … 5_1512.iso


6c6bc57e33f48c55e4bcc53cfed14f5001b4f6a3c4f045082adf29def7084bb5  unofficial_devuan_ascii_2.1_bpo_amd64-20191105_1512.iso

I don't know if the ascii versions of wireless firmware work with the backports kernel. (Not your issue, but someone else might need them.)
