    Ethernet


    I got a intergrated Ethernet Adapter intergrated onto my computer. Its called a Nvdia Nforce. Fedora doesnt automatically deteect it. When I goto add a ethernet card my card isnt listed from the big list they have. And there is no Generic what should I put instead?

    install a driver for it.

    just a guess as you havent provided a model number, this is what you may need:

    I pretty sure that driver is in the kernel now, as well, so you could just compile it in as a module and load it from there.

    Probably. But there's only one way to find out. :P

    Had the same problem, what you need to do is download the drivers from the NVIDA the tar.gz file and put it on a disk and copy it to the linux system.
    As root, unpack and run make;make install. This will create the drivers for the current kernel and install the modules...
    Make sure you edit the modules.conf as needed.

    You will need to do the make;make install again if you upgrade to a new kernel. so keep the copy of the tar.gz file on you linux machine.

    Do you have the file you installed still?
