By this time I was convinced that my cable had gone bad, so I moved the old broken server back into place, booted the install media, and the onboard NIC came right up (forcedeath driver), obtained a dhcp address and resolution worked with 0 packet loss. So I'm at a loss.
Has anyone ever had a board or an install where the network was just flaky or dead for multiple NICs? Thoughts?
$#%#@%#$%... You have to enable IOMMU in the BIOS before the NIC will work! I stumbled across this obscure little tidbit on the fedora forum:
It triggers some nasty AMD I10 Page Faults/xhci messages during boot of the 201508 install media, but the network comes right up, dhcp works, no more lost packets, etc.
I wonder if this is related to it corrupting my USB drives I plug into it? Drives work the first time, sync, then umount. Next time you plug them in, filesystem is gone?
Oh well, at least I have a network now. I'll add it to the wiki.
