Can the culling of the original NPU’s more-esoteric features produce a more focused and rounded gaming network card? Buried in these threads were directions for taking an alx driver and patching it so that it would work with the E The second thread contains better details and also various fixes for getting the driver to work with later versions of the Linux kernel 3. I really feel like I’m over my head here TechRadar pro IT insights for business. Finally on page 7 of the second thread someone had forked the compat-drivers package that contains alx on github and had applied the various patches to this code base.

[SOLVED] Qualcomm Atheros Bigfoot Killer E Ethernet working in linux – Page 4
Post as a guest Name. I have looked around online a bit, but have not been able to find any drivers to make a Bigfoot Killer E work under Linux CentOS 6, for what it’s worth. Sign up using Facebook.
Again, thanks for your help and for your time!!! The driver is sort of old, and I’m thinking it might be a compatibility-mode thing for all Killer cards, but maybe it’s just not the right driver at all. Beyond the usual optimizations, the bulk bigfoof the other changes are to the end-user software.

Sign up using Facebook. As you may recall the entire Killer NIC line runs an embedded Linux distribution on the NIC, so in this case a software overhaul means upgrading both the embedded Linux distribution and the end-user Windows software.
Rui F Ribeiro Linux distributions use roughly the same kernel, so either any will support it if the driver is stable and in the vanilla kernel or there is only support through experimental or third party drivers. It initially launched a pair of NICs that promised to offload the handling of network traffic away from the Kiiller, and thus offering a performance boost for gamers.
Anyway, I’d like to know if there are any Linux distributions that already come with this needed support? Killer by Ryan Smith on May 11, Patrick87 3 9.
What happened to bigfoot networks / killergaming
The name of the. News Reviews Insights TechRadar. To be clear, I’ve found a couple Google results mentioning that the manufacturer is “Cabletron”. So, about the patch I suspect that it might require recompiling the kernel, which if it koller do this automatically, I seem incapable of doing manually.
Results 31 to 40 of Page 4 of 15 First Frankly, and I hate to say this ever, I have no further suggestions. I have done a lot of digging including downloading and extracting the LAN driver at Gigabyte’s site for your awesome mobo.
I really feel like I’m over my head here Last Jump to page: Ultimately any future improvements to ,iller software will be reserved for the Killerbut this is an appropriate gesture given the short time of under a year between the launch of the Killer Xeno Pro and the Killer
