I have the following systems that use the e1000e ethernet module:
Dell Optiplex 7010 with:
00:19.0 Ethernet controller : Intel Corporation 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection
[8086:1502] (rev 04)
Dell Optiplex 7040 with:
00:1f.6 Ethernet controller : Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (2) I219-LM
[8086:15b7] (rev 31)
Both were working ok with Leap 42.2. Recently I have update them to Leap 42.3
and I have encountered the following problem:
After a reboot one of the following happens:
- the network works
- the network does not work, the link is down as if no
ethernet cable is plugged
And when the network works one of the following happens:
- the network continues to work
- after some time the link goes down and stays down until
the machine is rebooted
Suspecting a kernel/driver issue I decided to upgrade the
e1000e driver using the one from:
I have used version 3.3.6 and now I'm using version 18.104.22.168.
Since the upgrade, I don't have network trouble anymore.
I'm not filing a bugreport because I'm not sure
opensuse bugzilla is the right place to do it.
I think Intel should take care of it, by upgrading
the e1000e kernel driver. The e1000e driver in the
kernel source is version 3.2.6-k
I sent this email just make you aware of the issue.
At best, please open the bugzilla report.
You can install the Leap 42.2 kernel on top of 42.3 system
(e.g. zypper in --oldpackage kernel-*.rpm), and see whether it really
works with 42.2 kernel.
Also, make sure that the issue is still reproducible with the latest
42.3 update kernel. Testing with the latest upstream kernel (4.14.x)
would be helpful too. You can install it simply from OBS
