Detailed Description

What's new

  • Fix up parameters for the igb_ndo_fdb_add function
  • Fix wraping mmiowb() in SPIN_UNLOCK_IMPLIES_MMIOWB
  • Add support for RHEL8.1
  • Add support for flow_block_cb_setup_simple
  • Minor bugfixes and documentation updates


This release includes Base Drivers for Intel® Ethernet Network Connections.

  • igb driver supports all 82575-, 82576-, 82580-, I350-, I210-, I211-, and I354-based gigabit network connections.
  • igbvf driver supports 82576-based virtual function devices that can only be activated on kernels that support SR-IOV.
  • e1000e driver supports all PCI Express* gigabit network connections, except those that are 82575-, 82576-, 82580-, and I350-, I210-, and I211-based.


  • The Intel® PRO/1000 P Dual Port Server Adapter is supported by the e1000 driver, not the e1000e driver due to the 82546 part being used behind a PCI Express bridge.
  • Gigabit devices based on the Intel® Ethernet Controller X722 are supported by the i40e driver.

    • igb-x.x.x.tar.gz


If you currently have the e1000 driver installed and need to install e1000e, perform the following:

  1. If your version of e1000 is or less, upgrade to e1000 version
    8.x, using the instructions in the e1000 README.
  2. Install the e1000e driver using the instructions in the Building and Installation section in the readme.
  3. Modify /etc/modprobe.conf to point your PCIe* devices to use the new e1000e driver using alias ethX e1000e, or use your distribution's specific method for configuring network adapters like RedHat's setup/system-config-network or SuSE's yast2.
