No ethernet (RTL8111/8168) on elrepo el7 5.6.x Kernels

He guys,

i’m wondering if someone is also having problems on using the latest mainline kernels from elrepo?
Some weeks ago elrepo released the first kernel of the 5.6 series for centos7/Rockstor and since then my ethernet (RTL8111/8168 using r8169.ko) doesnt work anymore.
what i figured out so far is:
-kernel 5.5.x is working fine
-kernels 5.6.x do have and load the r8169.ko just fine, but the interface doesnt come up.

Someone experiencing the same problem?


Hi Sash,
I can confirm that.
Haven’t dig into in it. In a flash I something about the renaming of the adapter.
