    nic problem


    i tried to install gentoo but it doesn't recognise my network onboard card(it's
    Micro-Star International VT6102 [Rhine-II]).doesn't it support on board nics (i have an msi kt6v motherboard for athlon).ifconfig eth0 returned me :no such device.
    is there a way to make it work?
    thanks

    First try booting with the smp kernel, that is a 2.6 kernel that supports more hardware, if that doesn't work locate the module that contains the driver and modprobe it, if that doesn't work then i suggest trying a 2004.0 livecd(that is if you are using the 2004.1 now)

    If its a rhine card then it is supported. all you have to do is modprobe the correct module.. im not at home now so i cant check for you sorrry, something like "via_rhine".. will check back later.

    the modprob will fix your problem, but when i had a problem, i tried booting the 2.6 kernel via smp, and that fixed my problem, reguardless, i wanted to install the 2.6 kernel, so for me that was all the better, but if you want to use the 2.4, then use the modprobe.
