Can't find my network-card...

Can't find my network-card...

Post by Benn » Wed, 26 Dec 2001 17:17:49



I've just installed Slackware on an old Olivetti Envision 400, but during
the installation, it couldn't find my non-PCI-network-card (a new
Olivetti-card)...
I tryed with editing the rc.modules and setting up the network-card to
NS2000 IO=0x300
but it returned some errors with wrong set up, and some busy things...

What to do? Please help ;(

What sort of error did you get ?, was it something like invalid parameters
being passed to the module, or was it more a case of the system not being able
to find the network card ?

You may also have to specify the IRQ value as well as the IO value.  You might
like to try passing the parameter names in lowercase as well: "io=0x300
irq=10" for example.

See ya

A sort of both...

Something about busy processes and wrong parameters

Okay, see whether a "lsmod" shows the module loaded into memory.  If it shows
that there is no "ne2000" module loaded, then you might like to try the
command:

insmod ne2000 irq=<whatever the IRQ is> io=0x300 <or whatever you think the
memory address is>

Not memory addresses but io port addresses.  For the OP the
parameters are stored in /etc/modules.conf.
