Hello

I just received an E6420 test device from Dell which comes with an Intel(R) 82579LM.
Before building a drivers addon image I usually backup the original install. This would fail because the NIC was not recognized. I updated my distribution point (running ZCM 10.3.3) with the March 2011 imaging drivers update but to no avail.
Doing a "hwinfo --netcard" I get this:

I found that newid="0x8086 0x0082,e1000e" lets the linux env recognize the NIC but when loading/installing the driver it freezes.

Any idea how to solve this would be highly appreciated!
Thanks
Martin
