Subject: Re: IGB driver upgrade

Hello guys.

Is it possible to upgrade intel gigabit adapter's e1000 driver to
2.2.9? This is the latest version according to Intel website.


I've got a problem with 2.1.0-k2 drivers statically compiled into kernel.

Surely I can download drivers from intel and compile it as module, but
I need to compile it statically
Intel drivers do not provide sources for static compilation :(

Is it possible to upgrade drivers to igb-2.2.9 in the source tree and
allow the static compilation of them?

Because having 2.1.0-k2 we experience some strange random freezes with
network interface which can be fixed only by restarting network.

2.2.9 module has no such problems but we need to use static kernels
according to our policy.
