EtherExpress Pro/10 and Red Hat 5

EtherExpress Pro/10 and Red Hat 5

Post by Dan Chi » Sun, 19 Apr 1998 04:00:00

i just installed RedHat 5.0 via FTP.
However, since i installed it, the kernel won't  initialize the network
I've tried compiling the driver support as a module AND directly into the
kernel, but still, i receive the error "Delaying eth0 initialization."
Inside the X network configurator, Interfaces tab shows that the device is
inactive. I cannot activate it- every time I quit the control panel, it is
inactivated again.
    I know the IRQ and I/O addresses are correct, and I know that the driver
DOES work with the card- I had Slackware 96 working perfectly before I
I also know that Red Hat 5 will work with the card, because I was able to
actually download the distribution via FTP from sunsite.
    Any help would be appreciated.

Remove the x from my email address when replying.

1. Red Hat FTP install w/EtherExpress Pro/10


I'm attempting to install RedHat via FTP, but I cannot get the install
program to recognize the EtherExpress Pro/10 that is installed in my
machine. I've troubleshot for I/O port and IRQ conflicts, and have tried
to point the kernel at the port/IRQ settings at boot time with a ether=
statement. I have also attempted to use the same statement at install
time, and also tried autoprobing, to no avail.

Don't know where to go from here, verified the operation of the floppies
by installing RedHat on my machine at home, it found my PCI NE2000
