Help with network (arcnet) card...
I am having some trouble getting an arcnet card up and working in linux. I have posted a thread about this in the Mandriva forums (the distro I am trying to do this under). But now I don't think this is a distro problem - probably user ignorance!
Anyways, here is the situation, when I modprobe the drivers for the card, the drivers load but fail to detect the card. Using lspci I can see the card is installed. But for whatever reason, modprobe just does not find it. I know others have successfully installed the exact card I am using. The company (Contemporary Controls) has how-tos to install in 2.4 kernels but I am using a 2.6 kernel. The only difference I can tell is that they say to use insmod where insmod is replaced by modprobe as I understand it.
The latest thing I noticed is that this:
[root@localhost Desktop]# modprobe -v com20020-pci insmod /lib/modules/2.6.12-12mdksmp/kernel/drivers/net/arcnet/arcnet.ko.gz insmod /lib/modules/2.6.12-12mdksmp/kernel/drivers/net/arcnet/com20020.ko.gz insmod /lib/modules/2.6.12-12mdksmp/kernel/drivers/net/arcnet/com20020-pci.ko.gz backplane=1 clockm=3
