Hello,
In the past I have used Guix in virtualbox and I wanted to install it on my laptop as the main operating system. I booted into the live environment but it didn’t see my Ethernet device (it works under trisquel Linux).
Can you please help me to solve this issue?

Thanks in advance!

Regards,
Barnabas Beres

What is the specific hardware you are using?
Also, could you copy the output of dmesg? Or whatever other logs you
might have that are relevant.
Like, does the device show up in lsusb/lspci/lshw?

I'm just guessing, but it could be udev related. I've been having some
issues with my Wacom tablet that were caused by that. (haven't fixed it
yet. *sadface*)

Hi raingloom,
Thanks for your reply. I'm having a Realtek RTL810xE PCI Express Fast
Ethernet card which is using the r8169 driver under tisqurell linux. It
show up under lshw and lspci Dmesg shows things  like that:

[    1.019467] libphy: r8169: probed
[    1.019472] r8169 0000:07:00.0: realtek.ko not loaded, maybe it
needs to be added to initramfs?
[    1.073016] r8169: probe of 0000:07:00.0 failed with error -49

that rings a bell! I do have the line
  ;; Add kernel module for Symbios Logic SAS1068E
  (initrd-modules (append (list "mptsas")
                          %base-initrd-modules))
in one of my configurations.

So maybe you can copy this line and replace "mptsas" by "realtek".

Andreas

Thanks Andreas, but how can I add this on the LiveUSB?

I suppose you could follow the advice here:
   https://guix.gnu.org/manual/devel/en/html_node/Building-the-Installation-Image.html
and build a custom installation image with this module. But it
requires that you already have a running Guix installation somewhere
(which could be a binary installation on top of another distro).

Otherwise I have no further ideas, maybe someone else can chime in.

Andreas

I built the image but it did work I had the same problem. Than I tried with the development snapshot, and I saw that it bringed up my ethernet card but it was not able to finish booting into the tty. So I think it is a kernel related issue.
