Subject: Did not support Intel 82579LM Gigabit Ethernet (needs current e1000e)
Date: Mon, 09 May 2011 17:42:48 -0700
Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

I recently installed Debian stable on a Lenovo ThinkPad X220.  This
laptop has the following ethernet controller:

00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection (rev 04)

Current versions of the e1000e driver handle this card just fine, but
I'd guess the e1000e driver in stable's kernel doesn't.  I ended up
having to install via wireless.

I'm not sure that we have anything useful to do with this bug report,
indeed. The stable kernel will not be upgraded and thus will never
support this Ethernet card...while the unstable one does already.

So, I'm  tempted to just close the bug.

Support for this controller is marked for possible backport. This is
tracked in #624794. I'm merging this bugs.

I don't think this is up to you. The kernel includes many backports for
new hardware support.

I just would like to know how to check the version of
e1000e driver for  Intel Corporation 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection
(rev 04) in the latest kernel.

the 1.5.1 version seems to be working, see
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1775322&page=2

Thanks.
