HELP! 2.0.35 kernel and Intel EEPro 10+/100B/100+

HELP! 2.0.35 kernel and Intel EEPro 10+/100B/100+

Post by Nikica Petrini » Sat, 26 Sep 1998 04:00:00



Dear All,

We have a Dell PowerEdge 2300 with Intel Ether Express Pro 10+/100B/100+
network card (82557 chip) which refuses to work properly with RedHat v5.1.

When I booted from the RedHat v5.1 boot floppy in order to
download and install RedHat it all worked well (so I thought).

I successfully installed everything and rebooted. The network card
didn't pick-up. I turned the machine off and on again and the
network was there again.

I upgraded kernel to 2.0.35 (RedHat official updates) and made sure I
selected the right driver (make xconfig). Recompiled. Rebooted.
No sign of life from the network card. Turned the machine off and
on - nothing.

Please HELP! HELP! HELP!

Is our network card supported at all? According to RedHat's Web page
it doesn't look like it. However, make xconfig clearly lists Intel Ether
Express Pro 10+/100B/100+ under supported PCI network cards.

Please HELP!

Thanks.

Nik
