Debian 10 and Gigabyte

Postby tilandr78 » 2020-03-13 20:31

Good day to all!
I want to install Debian 10 on my PC with a Gigabyte Auros Pro X570 motherboard
And I could not install, the problems started in the network controller section, Debian did not see my network controller, it issued a list of about 80 possible, but not one is suitable
There are no Linux drivers on the official Gigabayte website

I understand that the "NEW" hardware can not be installed?

Debian 10's kernel was frozen back in January 2019 so any hardware introduced after that date may not be supported. See also viewtopic.php?f=16&t=139003

Generally speaking Linux users don't need to download drivers because the kernel already includes almost all of them.

Most motherboards have realtek NIC ports that need firmware for Gigabyte speeds. Without the firmware they will work at 10/100.
I would suggest you try the non-free firmware netinstaller - it should take care of any fiirmware issues at install. If 10.3 does not work then the Bullseye alpha installer.

@john123son: please stop spamming these boards with links to your crappy unofficial installation "guide", it's very annoying. Debian already provide a very comprehensive official installation guide which should be preferred over your screenshot-infested ramblings.
