Maya on Linux

Are Fedora14 and RH 5.5 WS the only Linux operating systems approved for Maya 2012? With the Intel motherboard and processor I'm running the Fedora 14 kernel does not support the network adapters e1000e [8086:1503] driver. Fedora 15 does but it doesn't work with the graphics drivers correctly.


Are there any other versions of Linux that have been tested and/or used with Maya 2012?


This is for render engine machines.


Thank you!

Hello,  in my experience you need to download a newer packaged e1000e driver set and build the driver from that.

I downloaded the e1000e-1.2.10..tar.gz package some time ago, and built the kernel drivers and it works well for me.


You can download the most recent or previous versions from here;


You can build an rpm driver package for your kernel just by typing the following;


sudo rpmbuild -bt e1000e-1.2.10..tar.gz


Then install the package with


sudo rpm -ivh e1000e-1.2.10*.rpm


reboot and you should be good to go . . .
