    Networking fails post kernel rebuild.


    I couldnt see anyother topics where this might apply, so this is going here for now. After i rebuilt my kernel, and all of a sudden my pcmcia ethernet card stopped getting an ip adress. I cannot ping, and lynx gives a "badly formed adress" error. Did i miss somthing in my setup here?

    can you post your
    Code:
    dmesg
    log and we'll see if we can see something obvious in that.

    have fun

    I think that somehow i missed the ne2000 driver. I rebuilt (My first big kernel jump. 2.4.18 to 2.6.1) and it worked fine. Thanks though. I guess beating your head against it really does work!

    but there's one nice thing - about beating your head against a wall - and that's when you stop.

    ps. did you use the make xconfig or the make menuconfig when you compiled the kernel. the make xconfig wis now well worth a look at.
