Had a bit of a mess around with the net install image....

Added a driver for your card for the install phase only, once installed you'll need to install another package. If you could give it a test and see how if goes detecting your card that'd be great.

Nope having problems

What I have now meets my needs for the near term so there is no need to resolve it right away. I am hoping though that the issue does get fixed in some future release so that I would be able to drive hardware with this computer at some point.

How would I go about officially requesting an update to support my hardware?

If you do want to pursue this now I would certainly be glad to continue and try anything to see if it works.

Thanks

I suspect this will get fixed automatically when a new distribution is released, using a newer kernel.

Another (more work) option is to use a new OS (say Mint 19 or Ubuntu 18.04),
and build LinuxCNC and a current RT kernel on that system.

I have received excellent help with this and really appreciate everyone input. I would like to donate to the organization. I recall seeing a question about donating somewhere but I don't recall where. I looked for something from the linuxcnc.org page but didn't see anything there. How do I make a contribution?

This image is to be used in conjuction with JT's instructions (which are great) and is only needed if the standard Debian Stretch does not pick up your NIC that requires the e1000e but Ubuntu/Mint do.

gnipsel.com/linuxcnc/uspace/debian9-rt.html

Cards it supports are as follows as per Intel blurb:
Supports the IntelĀ® PRO/1000 PCI-E (82563/6/7, 82571/2/3/4/7/8, or 82583) I217/I218/I219 based gigabit NIC
Driver version is 3.4.2.1


Well I think I'm cooking with gas

Managed to remaster a net-install image to have the driver needed during install and to install the one needed post install.

There is a package for both the non-rt & rt kernels (4.9.0-8) plus one to support the dkms feature (builds the module when a new kernel is installed). The dkms package and rt need to be installed manually, but that's not an issue. The non-rt one is installed during installation.
All of the above are in pool/contrib/e/e1000e

When you boot with this image you need to go to the advanced page and choose
Graphical I219V Install option. After that it is a standard install.


Use dd or win32diskimage to put it onto a USB drive.....I have tested this quite a few times in VBox but not on a live system.

The google drive link is:
drive.google.com/drive/folders/15f0m2pWk...MF7GoN2V?usp=sharing

Give it about 90 mins after this post for the image to upload.

Note for Don:
Put the grub bootloader on the partition you chose for your installation. The will not affect your existing boot loader.
Initially after the install boot into Ubuntu and rerun the Ubuntu's utility to update the grub boot loader

sudo update-grub2


This page has some good info regarding grub on ubuntu:
linuxhint.com/grub_rescue_ubuntu_1804/

If all goes well I'll tell you the secrets of chainloading.

I am sorry to AnnoyingMutt and others for my lack of response. I still have interest in this but unfortunately life is getting in the way of my hobbies. It may be a couple more months before I am able to spend time on this. I really appreciate everyone's help with this and I am anxious to get back on this when I can.
