Q: 0.99pl11, WD8013 Ethernet card not accessable any more, please help

Hello !

I need some help. Since I did an upgrade from the linux kernel,
that was released in SLS 1.01 - I think linux 0.99 pl7 -
The systems tells me on startup, that it cannot access the ethernet
card. I have an SMC 16 card builtin (a 16 bit WD8013) I/O 280, IRQ 2,
Shmem c8000.

This reports the kernel during startup (thank's for a tool like
selection ... !)

....
eth0: WD8013 using IRQ 9 with shared memory at 0xc8000-0xcbfff.         <= that's ok !

Calibrating delay loop.. ok - 16.44 BogoMips (tm)                       <= BTW - whats that ?!
...

Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to send; errno = Network is unreachable

My config file in /usr/src/linux/net/inet/CONFIG looks like this :

#
# Set the address and IRQ here. The ne.c and 3c503 driver will autoprobe
# if you set the address or IRQ to zero, so we do that by default.
# Cards supportted:
#
#       WD80x3          The Western Digital (SMC) WD80x3 driver
#         WD_SHMEM=xxx  Forces the address of the shared memory
#         FORCE_8BIT    Force card into 8-bit mode (WD8003)
#       NE2000          The Novell NE-2000 driver
#       HPLAN           The HP-LAN driver
#       EL1             The 3c501 EtherLink I driver (source missing?)
#       EL2             The 3c503 EtherLink II driver
#         EL2_AUI       Selects the AUI port instead of the BNC port
#       PLIP            The Crynwe PL/IP driver
#       SLIP            The MicroWalt SLIP driver
#         SL_DUMP       Uses the "dump frame" debug code
#         SL_COMPRESSED Use CSLIP
#       D_LINK          The D-Link DE-600 Portable Ethernet Adaptor.
#         D_LINK_IO     The D-Link I/O address (0x378 == default)
#         D_LINK_IRQ    The D-Link IRQ number to use (IRQ7 == default)
#         D_LINK_DEBUG  Enable or disable D-Link debugging
#
# Note: for most WD (SMC) cards, the AutoProbe doesn't work.  You have
#       to force those cards into operation, by specifying the I/O add-
#       ress (EI8390=xxx), the IRQ (EI8390_IRQ=xxx) and the address of
#       the shared memory (WD_SHMEM=xxxx).  All other supported cards
#       behave like they should, you can leave the values to 0. -FvK
#
#CARDS          = -DSLIP -DPLIP -DWD80x3 -DNE2000 -DHPLAN -DEL2 -DD_LINK
CARDS           = -DSLIP -DWD80x3

# For WD and SMC cards:
#OPTS           = -DEI8390=0x280 -DEI8390_IRQ=15
#WD_OPTS                = -DWD_SHMEM=0xCC000 -UFORCE_8BIT
OPTS            = -DEI8390=0 -DEI8390_IRQ=0
WD_OPTS         = -DWD_SHMEM=0

# For all other cards:
#OPTS           = -DEI8390=0 -DEI8390_IRQ=0
#WD_OPTS        = -DUD_SHMEM=0xCC000 -UFORCE_8BIT

EL_OPTS         = -UEL2_AUI
NE_OPTS         =
HP_OPTS         =
PLIP_OPTS       =
SLIP_OPTS       = -DSL_DUMP -DSL_COMPRESSED
DL_OPTS         = -DD_LINK_IO=0x378 -DD_LINK_IRQ=7 -UD_LINK_DEBUG

Please, who can help ?!

Thanks in advance

1. Please Help: 2940UW.img does not include ethernet card.

If anyone has information on this problem your help is very much appreciated.

I finally got a working image: the 2940UW.img from the RedHat site.  It
works nicely on my P133 with the 2940 controller, Scsi harddrive, cd-rom
and tape devices.  Unfortunately, it does not include the ethernet card.  
I have an Intel Etherexpress card.  I
have also tried the 2940UW-2C509 img which gives me the same problem.

RedHat advices me to get the patch available in the same directory and
build my own kernel.  At this point I am lost.  I do not know what it
means to "build my own kernel".  Is there a document somewhere that I can
read?  Can someone with experience here please give me some directions.

Your help is much appreciated.
