Re: [opensuse] Realtek NIC driver problem

The issue is the Windows driver for that card puts the card into some
state (disabled? "power save?") that the Linux driver does not bring
the card out of. It could work to when stopping vista, shut down the
computer and wait a few secs before turning it on. It could also work
to enable WOL in Windows driver, or enable the boot ROM (PXE boot) of
the LAN card in your BIOS settings.

AFAIK the bug is not resolved for 11.0 but I would assume that 11.1
does have a newer Kernel.

Pending updating the kernel, the work-around that seems to work is to
disconnect the ethernet cable *while still running Vista*, and reconnect
after Opensuse has booted.

Thanks for the help.
