Installation of driver for network adapter XG-C100C

Hi,
I’d like to install a driver for the 10Gig-E network adapter from Asus “XG-C100C”. The adapter does not appear in my hardware configuration.

I downloaded the driver-pakage from Asus here.

Maybe it’s enough if you point out which of the suggested installation-methods in the readme-file I should follow.

Thank you very much for helping!

Linux* aQuantia AQtion Driver for the aQuantia Multi-Gigabit PCI Express Family
of Ethernet Adapters

IMPORTANT NOTE

WARNING:
AQtion driver is built with the LRO (Large Receive Offload) feature enabled
by default.
This option offers the lowest CPU utilization for receives, but it is completely
incompatible with routing/ip forwarding and bridging.
If you need ip forwarding or bridging, please make sure to disable LRO using the
compile time options described in the LRO section below.
NB! If LRO is enabled, attempts to use ip forwarding or bridging can result in
low throughput or even a kernel panic.

In This Release

This file describes the aQuantia AQtion Driver for the aQuantia Multi-Gigabit
PCI Express Family of Ethernet Adapters.
This driver supports Linux kernels >= 3.10, and includes support for x86_64 and
ARM Linux system.

This release contains a source tarball and (optionally) a src.rpm package.

Identifying Your Adapter

The driver in this release is compatible with ethernet adapters based on:

  • AQC-100,
  • AQC-107,
  • AQC-108,
  • AQC-109,
  • AQC-111,
  • AQC-112,
  • AQC-113.

SFP+ Devices (for AQC-100 based adapters)

This release was verified to work with passive Direct Attach Cables (DAC) and
SFP+/LC Optical Transceiver.

Building and Installation

To manually build this driver:

  1. Make sure you have all the packages required to build a standalone kernel
    module.
    On a debian-based systems you should at least install the following packages:

sudo apt install linux-headers build-essential

  1. Move the base driver tar file to the directory of your choice.
    For example, use /home/username/aquantia.
    Untar/unzip archive:

cd ~/aquantia
tar zxf Aquantia-AQtion-x.y.z.tar.gz

  1. Change to the driver src directory:

cd Aquantia-AQtion-x.y.z/

NB! Make sure that pathname doesn’t contain whitespaces and special characters
(e.g. brackets), because kernel build system doesn’t support such paths
unfortunately and the build will fail.

  1. Compile the driver module:
    make

  2. Unload the driver, if an older version is in use:
    sudo rmmod atlantic

  3. Load the dependencies and the module itself:
    sudo make load

  4. Install the driver
    sudo make install

driver will be installed into the following location:

/lib/modules/uname -r/aquantia/atlantic.ko

NB! You might need to update initramfs image uponon install
(e.g. if atlantic.ko is a part of it, otherwise an old version will be
loaded from initramfs image on next reboot).
This is a potentially harmful operation, so ‘make install’ will check
if such an update is needed and will ask for your consent before actually
running update-initramfs / dracut.
Please make sure you understand the risks before choosing ‘Y’!

Alternatively build and install the driver with dkms

  1. Make sure you have all the packages required to build a standalone kernel
    module.
    On Debian-based systems the following command can be used:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-uname -r build-essential gawk dkms

On redhat-based systems the following command can be used:

sudo yum install kernel-devel-uname -r gcc gcc-c++ make gawk dkms

  1. Move the base driver tar file to the directory of your choice.
    For example, use /home/username/aquantia.
    Untar/unzip archive:

cd ~/aquantia
tar zxf Aquantia-AQtion-x.y.z.tar.gz

  1. Change to the driver source directory:

cd Aquantia-AQtion-x.y.z/

  1. Build and install the driver:

sudo ./dkms.sh install

driver will be installed into the following location:

/lib/modules/uname -r/updates/dkms/atlantic.ko

Install the driver on Debian\Ubuntu using atlantic-x.y.z.deb

  1. Make sure you have all the packages required to build a standalone kernel
    module.
    Execute the command:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-uname -r

  2. Move the atlantic-x.y.z.deb file to the directory of your choice.
    For example, use /home/username/aquantia.

  3. Execute the following commands:
    cd /home/username/aquantia
    sudo apt-get install ./atlantic-x.y.z.deb

You can use “dpkg -l | grep -i atlantic” to verify that the driver has been
installed.

Alternatively you can use atlantic-x.y.z.noarch.rpm

  1. Make sure you have all the packages required to build a standalone kernel
    module.
    Execute the command:
    sudo yum install kernel-devel-uname -r

  2. Move the atlantic-x.y.z.noarch.rpm file to the directory of your choice.
    For example, use /home/username/aquantia.

  3. Execute the following commands:
    cd /home/username/aquantia
    sudo yum install ./atlantic-x.y.z.noarch.rpm

You can use “rpm -qa | grep -i atlantic” to verify that the driver has been
installed.

Check that the driver is working

[…]

Troubleshooting

Some distributions don’t provide kernel sources ready for 3rdparty module build.
In general, the following could be used to prepare kernel source tree for build:

sudo su
cd /lib/modules/uname -r/build
make oldconfig
make prepare
make modules_prepare

Since PCI, check the slots:

sudo dmidecode -t slot

Driver is available:

modinfo atlantic

Besides, the module from the ASUS has only support up to kernel 5.11 and the same driver is included since 4.16: Aquantia AQC107 NBase-T/IEEE 802.3bz Ethernet Controller [AQtion]

Thanks for your reply, megavolt.
Does that mean the driver is already installed → not the issue? If I plug an RJ45 cable into the port, no LED’s light up…

Yes it is included in the kernel and should detect and load the driver automatically.

Even if no driver is installed, the LEDs should light up when power delivery works.

These 2 slots are not in use, all other are in use. I would say the card is not plugged in correctly. :man_shrugging: Otherwise check maybe:

lspci -nn -kk

If not listed, then it is a hardware issue: loose contact, power delivery too low, not plugged in correctly, pcie bandwidth on the slot is too low etc.

I cannot detect the adapter. I will check for hardware issues later, and come back to you.

Sorry for the long break.

I asked a collegue to plug the card into his PC. It was detected as Kernel-Modul aquantia, Chip: AQC107. So no issues with the card itself.
I booted grml and ran hardware-detection:

I am not able to see anything.
Is it possible, that the version of the PCI-slots and the PCI-version of the card are incompatible? I have no whatsever competence on this. Link to specs from vendor

I also add some images I took:



If both NVME slots are used, the PCI-slot cannot be used. That’s why the card doesn’t show. Guess I need a new motherboard.
Thanks for your support, anyway.
