H files and an executable looks like a module or something which, when run, gives an error of “cannot find module chipreg”. Linux distributions use roughly the same kernel, so either any will support it if the driver is stable and in the vanilla kernel d2100 there is only support through experimental or third party drivers.

Given the performance we’ve seen from the Killer-N line, their wireless solution, we would love to see an update to the wired solution that would help justify the standalone NIC. I found these threads on the Ubuntu Forums which discus the support lack of support for kkiller Killer E Ethernet network driver under Linux.

Its been years since I last used Linux cause back then not all hardware was supported for the machine I had. Buried in these threads were directions for taking an alx driver and patching it so that it would work with the E The time now is I would read through those threads before attempting to compile the drivers, also there were no distros mentioned in the threads that natively supported this hardware, so you’ll be on your own for getting support for it, at least in the short term.

If we can just get basic – even slow, if that’s what it comes down to – functionality out of this thing – the bare minimum of compatibility mode – that is all we need, at least until somebody comes out with a better driver, or we invest some cheap cash into a couple of extra NICs.

Housing just 4 DIMM slots provides more room for accessory chips, and the Killer E is the kind of welcome feature that might not stand out like quad-GPU support or PWM count, but can provide some great benefits to users.

There also seems to be a module for this in the kernel, so you may not have to patch it, if this is the E you are talking about. I really feel like I’m over my head here I suspect that it might require recompiling the kernel, which if it doesn’t do this automatically, I seem incapable of doing manually. As an integrated solution it becomes a little easier to consider, so long as you were intending on buying a high-end board to begin with. They claimed they had filed a pull request so hopefully these fixes will be making their way into the mainline at some point down the road.
