Solved, but currently I'm not allowed to mark my own answer as the accepted answer.
I bought a new system and want to install promox ve on it. Unfortunately the instllation process is not able to get an network connection. After some research I found that this is an issue with the NIC of my mainboard (more later). One solution should be to install debian buster, the network driver and when the network connection works installing proxmox ve. But I got stuck on installing the driver.
Mainboard: ASRock B550
-> NIC: RTL8125BG
-> Driver: 2.5G Ethernet LINUX driver r8125 for kernel up to 5.6
CPU: Ryzen 4650G
Some information about the os:
$ lsb_release -a Distributor ID: Debian Description: Debian GNU/Linux 10 buster) Release: 10 Codename: buster $ uname -v #1 SMP Debian 4.19.181-1 (2021-03-19) $ lshw -C network *-network UNCLAIMED description: Ethernet controller product: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. vendor: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:06:00.0 version: 05 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress msix vpd bus_master cap_list configuration: latency=0 resources: ioport:f0000(size=256) memory:fce00000-fce0ffff memory: fce100000-fce13fff
To have an temporary network connection I used my smartphone and enabled the USB tethering option. This worked fine for the installation process and running debian, but not for the pve installation process.
This way I was able to download the driver and install
build-essential (and packages like
But installing the driver fails when building the module.
$ ./autorun.sh Check old driver and unload it. Build the module and install make: *** /lib/modules/4.19.0-16-amd64/build: No such file or directory. Stop. make: *** [Makefile:176: clean] Error 2 make: *** [Makefile:48: clean] Error 2
When creating the missing build directory it still fails
$ mkdir /lib/modules/4.19.0-16-amd64/build $ ./autorun.sh Check old driver and unload it. Build the module and install make: *** No rule to make target 'clean'. Stop. make: *** [Makefile:176: clean] Error 2 make: *** [Makefile:48: clean] Error 2
Any ideas what I'm missing to install that driver?
