network cards are not working with 2.6.14 kernel
I have a 2.4.31 slackware 10.2 box with 2 network cards. The cards are installed properly and they function ok. I wanted to upgrade to 2.6.14 kernel, so I downloaded, compiling and installing it. The problem is that none of my network cards were properly installed (ifconfig -a return only info about loopback interface).
How can I find out from the working system with 2.4.31 kernel what kind of network cards do I have and to select them properly in the “make menuconfig” form 2.6.14 kernel?
If I want to install them as modules, do I need to manually load the driver modules for the network cards or it is done automatically at boot time?
Is there not a tool in slackware to tell you what type of NICs you have? If you really get desperate you can tryCode:

Caveat: I am not very familiar with slack, and I have worked less with modules under Linux than FreeBSD (so hopefully someone will correct me if I am mistaken).
