Newbie Question : Insmod 3c59x.c failed?

Post by hhk » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

Hi all,
  I am new to linux. I am trying to set up RedHat Linux ver 6.2
on my system but I cannot get my NIC to work.

  My NIC is 3Com 3C905-TX PCI and my linux version is 2.2.14-5.0.
During tyhe booting up procedure, I got the error message :

eth0: Insmod 3c59x.c failed.

1. Dell, 3c59x, and RH 4.0 (was Re: Newbie : 3c59x and RH 3.03 *Nothing* works)

Did that on RH 4.0. Still doesn't work. *sigh*

Yes, I rebuilt the kernel right. *wink*

Well I've booted DOS, ran 3c59xcfg.exe and made sure it worked. I get a
link light, the paramaters are the same as I see under linux ifconfig,
etc. There is no PnP option; I assume since it's PCI. (Built-into the
Dell OptiPlex GXPro motherboard. It's a 3c590-TPO.)

What I get when it tries to run the network startup is:

eth0: vortex_open() Internal config 000200012

When I run `ifconfig eth0` I get:

Overriding PCI latency timer (CFLT) setting of 248, new value is 255.
loading device 'eth0'...
eth0: 3com 3c590 Vortex 10Mbps at 0xdce0, 00:c0:4f:d8:81:8f, IRQ 11
Internal config register is 20012, transcievers 0xe108.
32K byte-wide RAM 1:1 Rx:Tx split, 10baseT interface.

Followed by the correct ifconfig information. If I then run ifconfig
again, the values are all zeroed out. I wait a while, do the ifconfig
again and get the same error and the zeroed values

Any help with this is appreciated.
