Shuttle SK41g Slackware network problem
I am running slackware 10, with the included xfx kernel(2.4.26). I am having trouble getting the network card set up. The shuttle SK41g uses the realtek 8139 chipset. I'd post a full lspci , dmsg output ect, but I got no way of transfering it on to this computer.
lspci reports this about my nic
00:0b.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev10)
eth0: Realtek RTL8139 at 0xe0b3c000, 00:30:16:60:1a:0f IRQ 11
eth0: Identified 8139 chip type 'RTL-8100B/8139D'
eth0: link up, 100mbpss, full duplex, lpa 0x41B1
The bit which seperates me from all the info I have come across is that if I type ifconfig nothing happens, it freezes the open console, also there is no /dev/eth0 device when I do a ls /dev.
Any hints, on how to solve this?
By I've had the network working in knoppix and mandrake 10 with no hassle other than giving it an Ip address and pointing it to my router.
I've set up the ip address for this, but I can't see that being a problem as there isn't a /dev/eth0 device even though the module is loaded.
