Description Of Issue

The driver for ethernet module e1000e of the 10th generation of intel NUC is not available in ROCK, nor in Ubuntu, nor in Lubuntu. You can get it working by installing the OS using wifi and afterwards installing the driver in terminal:

  1. Download the most current driver (v3.6.0):


  1. From the command line, untar the file:

tar xvf e1000e-3.6.0.tar.gz

  1. Change directories to the src directory under e1000e-3.6.0:

cd e1000e-3.6.0/src

  1. Build from the source:

sudo make install

  1. Remove the current e1000e module:

sudo modprobe -r e1000e

  1. Reinstall the new driver:

sudo modprobe e1000e

Is it possible to include the driver in ROCK?

Hi @Dany_Schroyen,

Welcome to the forum and thanks for reaching out! The NUC10 is not a supported NUC model yet so while it may work with Roon in certain aspects, we have not performed any testing on this model to ensure compatibility with ROCK.

I have informed the technical team regarding your report and we will take a look to see what is possible for the future here, but I cannot comment on any timelines of when/if we will add compatibility with the NUC10. Thanks!
