I have been trying to setup linux with 2 ethernet cards.
Im using 2 Linksys Ethernet cards which are NE2000 compatible. I can
confirm that the 2 ethernet cards work after using them under Win95 and
I have the two cards configured with
IRQ : 10
Base : 0x300
IRQ : 11
Base : 0x340
My problem is that the second card does not get probed and gets left out
while the first card gets setup and initialized correctly. I have tried
passing parameters at boot like "linux ether=10,0x300,eth0 11,0x340,eth1"
and this did not recognize the second card but probes the first (eth0)
I have also tried adding "append ether=10,0x300,eth0 11,0x340,eth1" to the
/etc/lilo.conf and ran lilo but this did not work either.
my /etc/conf.modules looks like this:
alias eth0 ne
alias eth1 ne
options eth1 io=0x340 irq=11
options eth0 io=0x300 irq=10
my etc/lilo.conf looks like this
append = "ether=10,0x300,eth0 ether=11,0x340,eth1"
my etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 look like this
I get "Delaying eth1 initialization" message at bootup.
Is there anything else that I can do to get this 2 cards working?
Thanks to any contributions.
