i have a 82599EB network card.
the ixgbe driver on 8* supports 82598 cards, although it identified my card
but i'm not sure it will work fine and won't make kernel panics, since its a
production server i want to put a good driver that will work without
I just found this from the Intel website.
Looks like they have added support for the 82598 and 82599 which isn't on
the ixgbe driver on 8 stable/release.
is it safe to dowload and put the files of this driver in /sys/dev/ixgbe and
then install it?
is it simply: *make && make install && make clean*?
i guess i need to recompile the kernel also because ixgbe is on the GENERIC
what do you advise me?
