USB Mouse support

Thanks Terry, enabling the IOMMU Controller did the trick as with the OP in that thread you linked to...

I just happen to be using the same Gigabyte 990FX mobo...

First time EVER installing Linux and not had the USB mouse work right out of the gate.

just open a terminal type su and your root password, then enter ifstatus eth0 and see if the network is down, if it is then enter ifup eth0 and it should connect to the internet.

the community repos should now show up in yast so you can add packman etc.

 

if it doesn't connect to the internet you may need to install a network driver for it.

if the driver isn't built into the kernel and you do need to install the driver, it's this one :- http://www.realtek.com.tw/Downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=13&PFid=5&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false

see my edit for the correct driver, but first thing i'd do is shut down the pc and then restart it, i do believe the network driver is built into the kernel and should just work, especially now you have enabled iommu in bios.

The fix for one opensuse user was.........



I have the same FX8350 running on a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 using OpenSuse 13.1. 
The solution that worked for me was to edit the bootloader using YAST, 
the default selection (or the selection you are using to load OpenSuse 13.1 in my case), "iommu=pt" after "quiet showopts".

For example:

    "resume=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Hitachi_HDS721010CLA332_JP2921HQ1076NA-part2 splash=silent quiet showopts iommu=pt"

Now all my USB ports 2.0 and 3.0 are working and my internet networking is working too!. 
Also make sure IOMMU is enabled in BIOS. I hope this helps someone else.

go into yast, network devices, network settings and see if the device is configured, if it's not, then edit it and configure it.

 

:b33r:

RTL8111/81688 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller

Device name enp5s0

Started automatically at boot

 

What edits if any should I make Terry?

what does ifstatus enp5s0 say??

 

eg. mine

mainpc:/home/ted # ifstatus eth0
    eth0      device: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 03)
2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP qlen 1000
    link/ether 00:1f:d0:db:f0:e5 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet 192.168.0.2/24 brd 192.168.0.255 scope global eth0
    inet6 fe80::21f:d0ff:fedb:f0e5/64 scope link 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
Configured IPv4 routes for interface eth0:
  default 192.168.0.1 - eth0  
  169.254.0.0/16 - - eth0  
Active IPv4 routes for interface eth0:
  default via 192.168.0.1
  169.254.0.0/16  scope link
2 of 2 configured IPv4 routes for interface eth0 up

    eth0      is up

if it doesn't show an ip address then i'd look into the connection to the router and check everything is connected correctly.

O.K., I edited the configuration so that it's now named eth0 and here's the ifstatus

eth0 device: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RT:8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 06)
2: eth0 <BROADCAST, MULTICAST, UP, LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP qlen 1000 
       link/ether 74:d4:35:0d:a5:80: brd ff:ff:ff:ff:frf:ff
inet 169.254.7.122/16 brd 169.254.255.255 scope link eth0:avahi
valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
inet6 fe80: :76d4:35ff:fe0d:a580/64 scope link
valid lft forever preferred_lft forever
Configured IPv4 routes for interface eth0:
default scope link metric 1002
0 of 1 c9onfigured IPv4 routes for interface eth0 up
etho is up

Looks to me like something is missing compared to Terry's...

 

edit: went in and assigned IP addy 192.168.0.2 and now it says:

eth0 device: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RT:8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 06)
2: eth0 <BROADCAST, MULTICAST, UP, LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP qlen 1000 
       link/ether 74:d4:35:0d:a5:80: brd ff:ff:ff:ff:frf:ff

looks to me like it doesn't have a connection to your router to get an ip address and get on the internet, try a different cable, port on router and see if any better luck.

the 169.254.7.122/16 address you see is nothing but an internal default address the pc gives itself, and has nothing to do with a real internet address from the router which usually starts with 192.168.x.x
