    Lucky people, at least you have a device specific driver. ;)
    No device specific driver for the Via PCI-to-PCIe bridge (1106:324B)
    used in the CX700 chip set.
    (and the 8139too driver is not acting up on this machine.)

    Not a problem in my case, building without MSI support gives up very little.
