1. /dev/eth0 doesn't exist
I'm running 2.0.30 from Red Hat. I originally installed Red Hat 4.2 but I
bought a new computer and had to upgrade my kernel.
I have read the Ethernet-HOWTO and recompiled my kernel several times but
haven't had any luck getting my card detected.
The card is an Ether16 LAN Card from LINKSYS. It's supposed to be 100%
NE2000 compatible. It is software configurable from DOS and I set it to
IRQ3 at address 0x340 and this works in Windows95.
Since it is software configurable, the Ethernet-HOWTO indicated that I may
have to do a warm-boot with loadlin or something but I would really like to
avoid that. I'd consider buying a new card before I would do that.
The symptoms show up when I run netcfg (the graphical configuration tool
provided w/ Red Hat). When I try to activate the interface (which is
otherwise set up properly, I think) it says:
Delaying eth0 interface.
I looked at the python source that the netcfg program runs and this message
gets printed out when the device being used doesn't actually exist. Since
/dev/eth0 doesn't exist and dmesg mentions nothing about ethernet cards, I'd
guess that it's not being detected at all.
I tried running lilo w/ various strings appended to it. Some I tried follow:
Has anyone experienced problems w/ my particular card?
I'd be happy to answer specific questions. I could ramble some other things
that I tried too, but it'd probably be just a waste of bandwidth.
Thanks in advance.
