I'm trying to install Ubuntu 13.04 on a Lenovo M92 desktop that has an Intel 82579LM Gigabit Ethernet adapter. The installer doesn't see the network connection at all. Is there a driver for this card for 13.04? Can I download just the driver and install it after then base install is complete?

There is a driver e1000e which is not working correctly now. Can you get a temporary wireless connection so we can compile a later, working driver? –  chili555 Aug 7 '13 at 21:09
@chili555 Are you the guy who ported the VMware driver for e1000e? It's shocking that this is still broken on Linux. –  Locutus Feb 3 at 8:52
@Locutus It was not me, sorry. –  chili555 Feb 3 at 11:54
