e1000e kernel module (unknown symbol in module)

I'm running into issues building a new kernel module in support of the I219-V.

Initially built with driver v3.3.3 against kernel 3.0.13-0.27-default. The module (e1000e.ko) loaded without issue, but the environment lacked USB support for the target devices (no mouse/keyboard).

I rebuilt with driver v3.3.3 against kernel 3.0.76-0.11-default. Mouse/keyboard work now, but the e1000e module does not load. It's being loaded by insmod, which reports:

insmod: error inserting '/modules/e1000e_3.3.3.ko' : -1 Unknown symbol in module

I also tried with driver v3.2.7.1 against the same kernel (3.0.76-0.11-default) -- same behaviour.

Is there a trick to building the e1000e module against the (slightly) newer 3.0 kernel?

Thanks!

Hi jeffdtu,

As I219V is an onboard NIC, have you checked with the board vendor for the drivers? It is recommended to obtain the driver from the board vendor.

Thanks,

It's a Dell system -- Windows drivers only. The drivers are for the imaging environment, which is Linux-based. My workflow has worked flawlessly for updating the e1000e driver in that environment and as recently as driver v3.1.0.2 in support of the I217-LM and I218-LM (also in a Dell systems). I do appreciate the input -- much appreciated. I will continue investigating to see if I can get this driver to load.
