Mdk 10.1 Community network card installation problem
I installed Mandrake 10.1 Community. Everything went fine and it is working.
I then tried to configure network using DrakConf. When trying to add a new network interface, it suggests me only 2 options:
- usb device
- manual selection of a driver
First one is a little weird. It seems to be for a point-to-point connection.
So I choosed second option. I know that this card needs 8139too driver (this card was on another box with Fedora Core 2 before and worked fine). I select this one.
Next screen is to select automatic or manual configuration or driver options. Whatever I choose, I have a small dialog box (it closes immediately, so I can't read it) and I am back to first screen (the one with USB option)!
I tried some manual configuration. I added this line to /etc/modprobe.conf
Then I loaded the driver:
I created ifcfg-eth0 in network-scripts (with same options as on FC2 box).
And then I tried to bring interface up with:
I got an error message:
interface eth0 not found
Does anybody have an idea of what I can do for this? Is there any bug with drakconnect? And did I miss something for manual configuration?
Thanks a lot for any help.
PS: I do not have Internet access on the Mandrake box.
