This old bug affects me severely, I say old bug because it is very well documented in the following link: Bug report
This bug results in two things:
My on-board networking doesn't work, and trying to restart or shut-down the computer freezes the system.
So, if you read the bug report you noticed there is a fix, well I have actually successfully fixed the issue two times, but it keeps coming back after reboot, and now I can't seem to fix it.
Fix that worked:
forcedeth msi=0 msix=0to
exec rmmod forcedethdirectly underneath the beginning of the script section in the file
/etc/init/kmod.conf(I can't find a
module-init-tools.conf, is the
modprobe forcedeth msi=0 msix=0to
It seems like I’m very close to solving this problem that affects my machine so much, but at the same time I’m lost because I don’t understand the way the modules and the forcedeth works.
