Sorry to bring up an old topic, but I have an Abit NF7-S motherboard, and am having one hell of a time trying to get the nforce2 drivers installed.
I am installing on Slackware 9.1, and using the tar. I unpacked it, did the make, and the make install. Does nothing. Ethernet adapter still not detected, and cant get on the net. So i tried doing insmod on nvnet.o in the lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/net directory, and it says loading the module will taint the kernel, so it says it loads the module but with warnings.
When i do lsmod, it shows the nvnet module, but says unused. I have no problems with make or make install, no errors i mean, but just nothing happens.
Ive also read about modifying /etc/modules.conf to show the alias, but i have no clue how to do that. :(
Any help is greatly appreciated, but please keep in mind im a Slack-newbie...so go easy on me :)
