Hi everyone, I have a problem with my Realtek 8168/8111 network card etc.
This card has given me a lot of problems with different Linux distributions in the sense that it doesn’t always work and if it works with a kernel as soon as it is updated it stops working.
I have read on the net that many complain of problems.
I also wanted to try Qubes because I would like to use and study it and with the 4.9 kernel it works while as soon as I updated to 5.4 it stopped working.
By resetting kernel 4.19 in the global settings everything is back to work.
Is there any driver or module in kernel 5.4 that is no longer loaded since 4.19?
Is there any solution to make it always work even with any kernel updates?
With other Linux distributions I have to say that even setting dkms was useless.
For example on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS as soon as I updated the kernel with automatic updates it stopped working.
Finally one last question: if I write uname -r from the generic terminal, it always gives me 5.4 as the kernel even if I have set 4.19 as default.
Shouldn’t it return 4.19 to the monitor?
