we would like to use the I225 Controller with a Linux Version 5.4.20 which does not natively support the IGC Driver that is required for this Controller. Usually we solve such driver issues by compiling the backported Version of this driver against our kernel ( for example https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/14687/Intel-Network-Adapter-Driver-for-PCIe-Intel-10-Gigab... ). But we were not able to find such a version of the IGC Driver in the download center.
The Complete Driver Pack which is displayed when clicking on the Driver Button on the Site of the I225 (https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/184676/intel-ethernet-controller-i225-v.html) also does not contain such a driver for linux.
Could you please provide the igc driver for linux kernel 5？
Thank you for contacting the Intel Embedded Community.
If you don't have the requested driver at the Complete Driver Pack, then we don't provide it; usually Linux vendors develop their own drivers. See the below links I have found:
