Installing an Intel EtherExpress Pro 10 under Slackware!

Post by Stev » Mon, 18 May 1998 04:00:00

I am trying to set this card up but cannot get the ifconfig line to work.  I
am not sure what the interface name for the card is, and if it is "eth" then
how do I tell Linux what the IRQ and I/O are???

current line is:

ifconfig eth0 $IPADDR broadcast $BROADCAST netmask $NETMASK




1. Install Intel EtherExpress Pro 10/10+ ISA card on Redhat 6.1 ---Please help


I installed RedHat 6.1 on my PC(dual boot 98/Linux). Everything is fine
exception the RedHat can't recognize my ethernet card( Intel
EtherExpress ISA Pro 10/10+). The card works fine in 98.

During the installation, RedHat couldn't detect my card at all. So I
tried to load it manually. I tried two ways:
1. I put ether=5,0x210,0,0,eth0 ( the conf in my 98) in lilo.conf, then
reboot the machine. During the boot, lilo couldn't start eth0.
2. I run lsmod, I found nothing there. I do have
/lib/modules/2.2.12-20/net/eexpro.o file, so I said insmod eexpro. The
linux hangs forever. I have to power off the machine.

What did I do wrong? Please help!
