I installed gentoo on a new Dell Optiplex, and had everything up and running nicely. I noticed in the ifconfig eth0 state that the onboard NIC card was reporting RX Errors. I blamed it on the nic card so went and got an asante friendlynet pci nic card.
It shows up under lspci as:
Lite-On Communications Inc LNE100TX
but ever since i put the card in, both my old nic and the new one stopped working, and don't even show up in ifconfig anymore
a relevant part of dmesg:
ds: no socket drivers loaded!
the only module I seem to have compiled is dummy.o
when I try to modprobe tulip it says it con not locate it. I found a folder in
with files like tulip.h tulip_core.c Makefile
and a few more, but I tried to compile it using make and got:
Makefile:17: /Rules.make: No such file or directory
make: *** No Rule to make target `/Rules.make'. Stop.
