I'm attempting to get an Ubuntu MinimalCD Install working without much luck..
Working from the guide posted here I can get the CD to boot and I select the
Command-Line Installer option. After selecting my Language and Keyboard settings the installer fails on
Configure the network with DHCP with the message:
Network autoconfiguration failed. Your network is probably not using the DHCP protocol. Alternatively, the DHCP server may be slow or some network hardware is not working properly. <continue>
I can verify that my network is using DHCP and that the network hardware on the device is functional. The device in question is the EBM-LX800 (AMD Geode LX800 5.25” Mini Module with AMD Geode LX800 + CS5536 Chipset) which uses the
10/100Base-Tx Fast Ethernet compatible: Realtek RTL 8101L Ethernet interface.
From here If I enter tty and
modprobe --list | grep net I see a very large list of drivers, some of which look like they may be the correct driver for my device however i'm not sure which to choose or how to ensure the driver is available for the network configuration.
I have not listed the drivers from the modprobe --list command because there are way too many to copy them all by hand.
