I was wondering if anyone else was having this problem. I've been
trying to switch from an old 2.4.23 kernel to a 2.6.8 one. My problem
is that in the 2.6.8 kernel I cant seem to get the usb ethernet dongle
working as I had it in 2.4.23. (Keep in mind this works perfectly in
2.4.23). What happens in 2.6.8 is that the module correctly (at least
with no errors) loads but it does not seem to ever produce an ethX
interface (should be eth1) as shown by ifconfig -a.
Here is the kernel logs (same as dmesg) from 2.6.8:
Oct 14 18:52:48 [kernel] drivers/usb/net/pegasus.c:
v0.5.12(2003/06/06):Pegasus/Pegasus II USB Ethernet driver
Note that no reference is made to eth1 in the kernel logs or dmesg.
On the other hand when I boot into 2.4.23 here is the kernel message I
Oct 14 19:13:10 [kernel] pegasus.c: eth1: SpeedStream USB 10/100
Oct 14 19:13:10 [kernel] pegasus.c: setup Pegasus II specific
Oct 14 19:13:11 [kernel] pegasus.c: link partner stat 0
Does anyone have any idea what is going on? BTW I've tried compiling
the pegasus driver as both a module and into the kernel.
