Cannot Activate network card after upgrading to kernel 2.6
Like most birds migrating to Linux I have some problemos.
As i was searching the inet i found other peps having some hard time like me:)... Not being able to activate the network card (RTL8139) that worked just fine with the older kernel 2.4
Distro: RH9, kernel: 2.6.0
I have dual-os: XP/RH9, the internet is working fine under Windows, and it worked before i switched to kernel 2.6, although i had to set the ip statically /couldn't get a dynamic one through DHCP/.
So there is no hardware problem.
The NIC is RTL8139 PCI, supported by RH9.
I'm using the 8139too driver, here is the modprobe output:
so the driver is not loaded !?
FATAL ERROR inserting 8139too
Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter
gmod: Error - reference to undeclared functions:
Why are those functions unrecognised, probably I left out something in the kernel config...
configuration for eth0 not found
When i switch back to the old kernel/2.4/, the card is activated but still no inet. Obviously the realtek driver can't be loaded, but why?
IRQ missmatch, or is it a DHCP problem /how can i check the running deamons, if dhcpd is not loaded.../
Any help would be appreciated.
