I am trying to setup my home network. I have got RH6.1 on two
machines. I have got two NIC on my e-machine ( Netgear FA310TX and 3com
3c905 TX ). Netgear FA310TX is up and running on eth0, connected with the
cable modem (dhcp) and everything is working fine.
I tried to bring up the 3Com 3c905-TX. I added the alias entry "alias
eth1 3c59x" in the /etc/conf.modules file. On the /etc/sysconfig/network-
scripts/ifcfg-eth1 file, I added the following lines..
When I tried to boot the system, it gave the error message "Delaying
eht1 initialization". After login, I tried to bring the card up by using,
ifconfig eth1 10.10.10.10 up
I found the card was up, when I issued the command "ifconfig" with inet
addr:10.10.10.10. But there was no LED - Green light on the card or in
the HUB. Ping worked fine. When I tried to see the status using "pump -i
eth1 --status", the command failed and then I couldn't see the eth1 card
up when I checked the status with "ifconfig". But again I tried to bring
up the card with "ifconfig" and it came up, but the same problem persists.
I tried to change the cable modem connection from eth0 to eth1 and
changed all the required files and started dhcpcd with eth1 ( 3c905 TX ).
The command failed and I got the exit code as "14".
When I tried to bring up the card ( Link Sys LNE100TX ) on other
machine, I got the error message "Delaying eth0 initialization". tulip
driver is available on that system and I have made the alias entry in the
conf.modules but still it is not coming up. ifconfig eth0 10.10.10.20 up
Please help me in solving this problem.
Thanks In Advance,
