    SMGL can't connect to the net {Solved}


    I was just testing out Sourcemage 0.9.4 and I can not connect to the net with it anymore.
    It did work just fine right after the initial boot.
    I managed to compile xorg and kde.
    When I booted into SMGL again, I could not get online, I was told that I had
    Code:
    invalid module format
    After trying to insert the 8139too module for my Realtek 8139 card.
    So, I checked my kernel config just to make sure that I had compiled it as a module, and it was compiled as a module.
    This is the contents of the folder that it looks into for the loading of the module.
    Code:
    8139cp.ko   bonding   eql.ko       sb1000.ko
    8139too.ko  dummy.ko  ethertap.ko  tun.ko
    Not sure why the .ko is on the end though.

    Edit: this is the full error message after modprobe 8139too.
    Code:
    modprobe 8139too
    8139too: disagrees about version of symbol struct_module
    FATAL: Error inserting 8139too
    (lib/modules/2.6.11.8/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.ko) Invalid module
    format

    A reinstall solved the problem.
    Seems strange, but it looks as if I can't tell it to use the 8139too driver, but, I have to just let it find it on its own.
    This is the contents of the /etc/sysconfig/network.eth0.dev
    Code:
    MODULE=
    MODE=dynamic
    IP=
    BROADCAST=
    NETMASK=
    GATEWAY=
    POINTOPOINT=
    MTU=
    UP_ON_BOOT=yes
    Normally I would put 8139too in the module line after making sure that it was compiled as a module.
