Review of Linux Compatibility

The Asrock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 is a ATX mainboard with AM3+ socket. The board is fully supported under Linux and was succesfully used under Linux Mint 15 and Ubuntu 12.

Ethernet

The onboard Ethernet bases on a Realtek chipse:

05:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller [10ec:8168] (rev 06)
Subsystem: ASRock Incorporation Motherboard (one of many) [1849:8168]
Kernel driver in use: r8169

and is fully supported by the r8169 kernel module. This driver loads automatically:

r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 2.3LK-NAPI loaded
r8169 0000:05:00.0: can’t disable ASPM; OS doesn’t have ASPM control
